    From what I gathered by talking to employees at several Targets, looks like they're doing their toy resets this weekend around the 7th. I'd guess Sunday may be the best time to go out and find POTP figures.

    Leader Optimus/Orion Pax is probably my favorite figure in a while. Truck mode is a bit wonky but works. Robot mode is pretty awesome. Since he has a neat matte finish, the grey trailer parts fit in OK. I'm regretting the Rodimus purchase. In my mind, he is supposed to be tall and lean. This one is clunky with weird joints. The trailer stickers are driving me crazy since they'll tear with the first transformation. It gets worse when you stand both Primes together which magnifies the difference. Optimus was clearly modeled on the MP-10. Why couldn't they model Rodimus off of his masterpiece?

    Because from some reports, Masterpiece Rodimus was a brittle mess whose joints would sometimes crumble while still in the package.

    That or if they were put in with the toy reset stuff they can't sell them (had an associate tell me that a target by me had the POTP voyagers but can't sell them until the reset) and they just said they didn't to avoid any potential problems.

    Since it's looking like deluxe Cogman isn't going to see any widespread, if any, release in the US, I decided to eBay it from China. If anyone's comfortable with buying stuff from overseas, he can be bought for around $30. I think he's the best of the latest movie figures. Well detailed and painted for a deluxe. The best part is that the Cogman headmaster fits all the current titan master/prime master figures. It came packaged for the Chinese market with instructions in Mandarin so I doubt these have any intent on being sold here.

    Eyes are painted a really bright blue. Freaky!

    Target sale results remain mixed. Stores are not discounting at a very uniform pace. I did find a few things at the Ypsi Target, but am noticing Titan Masters are almost all wiped out at every store I go to. I have checked Canton, Westland and Belleville Meijer and they still have DX's bat $12.99, and few if any Titan Masters at $3.74. I don't know enough about hoe Meijer does clearance to determine if any future cuts are coming.

    This might be the first time the leaders have been spotted somewhere other than Target.

    And the first time in a long time Ludington Walmart has had anything of note.

    I was shocked. I was in there Friday afternoon and nothing new. I was shopping with my wife yesterday and wasn't even going to go to toys, but she had to use the restroom. I picked up the voyagers and Jazz. Leaders weren't in my budget.

    TRU in Westland had POTP Voyagers. I grabbed Grimlock, left Starscream. Deluxes & Legends had already been picked clean.

    and saw ZERO evidence of a Target reset anywhere so thinking that might've been a false rumor.

    I’ve had multiple targets tell me they’re resetting on the 7th. AA/Saline Rd already did.

    I was told the 7th too, but that was probably just a start date, whole department resets usually take a few days to complete
