    If you're really hard up, there's always the "buy all the toys at target and return them two weeks later after they've ordered new product" trick. Not that I condone such behavior, but it's an option.

    Whitebear/East St Paul Target has 2 Topspin, 1 Kroc, 1 Preceptor and 1 Kup. Prob a Kup and Preceptor in back too. I took the Quake for my kid cuz he wanted one.

    Edit:. Forgot to mention, deluxes are ringing up at $17.19 here so keep that in mind. Maybe a new price point going forward.

    Still just on the lookout for Perceptor in the Minneapolis area. No such luck at the Quarry Target yesterday, though they've got plenty of Getaways.

    Nothing in Bville except the Megatron TLK Turbochanger if you're into that sort of thing. As someone said before, all the TLK stuff is at the front of the store now.
    Bville Target had broadsides and TR Soundwaves and that was about it for even vaguely new-ish sightings.

    In non-TF related stuff, my wife's been trying to get a Play Arts Kai Prompto from FFXV, and like every store just cancelled all their preorders. All I can find is KO's now, and so I'm wondering 2 things:
    1) Anyone know where I can find one of them outside of Amazon's horrific pricing?
    2) Are Play Arts Kai KO's like TF KO's where there's not really a noticeable quality difference?

    I prefer the 'buy all the junk TFs in the area and return them all to the single worst Target that never stocks new product anyhow' method. Not that I've ever tried it...but I'd like to!

    When you say "AV Target," do you mean the one off 77/Cedar or the one off Pilot Knob Road?

    Heh. To clarify: Google shows two different Targets in Apple Valley. I'm trying to nail down which one we're talking about:) 

    EDIT: I ran down there to figure it out for myself. I'm guessing the Target you're referring to was the Super Target on Cedar and 150th. The other Apple Valley store is just a regular Target on Pilot Knob, also off 150th.

    Please :rolleyes:  You must not have been to a real ghetto huh? Midway Target is by no means bad compared to some of the places I've been/seen.

    Anyways, when is TLK leader Megs supposed to be out?

    AV Target on Cedar had zero Voyagers today, but still had a Topspin, Kup, and Quake, all of which I left behind.

    Richfield Target had just one Krok from wave 4 (also left him there) as well as no less than SEVEN Broadsides.

    My wife said the same thing first time I made a late night run there for a figure (WWE Elite Paige, I'm not ashamed)

    When I got there, place was shiny and clean and seemed like any other Target. Gentrification is real y'all.
