    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Target.com uses the same inventory item for every item in the assortment. It's just as likely those Targets have Krok or Twinferno or any other figure as it is Misfire.

    Last night at Bloomington Target spotted potp Starscream and the potp Legends. Looks like they finally did their toy reset.

    Not to mention that at this point it's pretty unlikely they'd be getting any newer TR stuff when PotP is hitting shelves. Misfire's $22 on Amazon. That's pretty steep for a Deluxe, but realistically unless one randomly pops up at a TRU, that'll be the best way to get it.

    It's only steep because Generations hasn't been bumped up to $20 like the movie line has. But yeah, if you're looking for Misfire now's the time to snag one online.

    I managed to get Rod and Op from Edina Target the other day.

    What do you guys think of them? I love em, with a couple reservations. But then I also loved The Last Jedi, so...

    What's wrong with The Last Jedi? I though it was a fine movie.

    I have Op and like him, but really only in Evo mode and the Orion bot is kinda neat. Otherwise I'd say you can pass on him. I might not even keep mine, since I'm not a op collector and already have MP-10.

    Anyone know where a decently priced Twin twist can be found? Never saw him in stores.

    TLJ was ok, but I thought the humor in it did not fit properly and kept pulling me out. Felt like the prequels in that way to me.

    Speaking of SW, snagged one of the Lego UCS Millennium Falcon last week. The box is massive and sitting in my living room. Not sure when I'm going to put it together!

    Bringing it back to Transformers... Ordered MP-39 Sunstreaker from amazon.co.jp. Only $85 shipped, much cheaper than most other places like BBTS, etc.

    Also, was at Blaine North Target tonight and still nothing new unless I missed an endcap or something...

    I did not like the movie but was nice seeing Luke actually talk and do things. Starting the movie out as a comedy was a bad move as well.

    Nice score on the Falcon btw!

    I decided to grab mine on eBay for $25 shipped. Such a shame that poor distribution creates these opportunities for people to price gouge like this.

    Ahh, the fabled triple-post. It's been a fortnite since I've laid eyes on such a thing. ;)

    Amazon still has them, like Misfire. Last I checked they were around $20.

    I must say, MP-39 is the bees knees. I like him a lot. Very poseable, transformation is complex enough but not difficult, and he looks good (aside from the backpack).

    Weighing in on TLJ - I thought it was a good movie, but I dunno if it was the RIGHT movie. I don't think I can accurately judge it until I see the next one and they resolve all the hanging threads from TLJ.

    Bloomington Target was sans Starscream last night, but still had a couple sets of deluxes and voyagers. They should just burn all the remaining TLK stuff. Unless it's cogman. I still want cogman.

    Manager informed me I get to stay on working at Costco a day ago (they mainly hire seasonal, but hire people back after holiday time), so to celebrate, I decided to finish the "Unicron trio" in my Masterpiece collection by ordering X-Transbots Eligos (aka not-MP Cyclonus).

    He may not be the greatest, but I don't see many other options for an MP Cyclonus right now, and his modes both at least look good. (Maybe will look into some paint touch-ups though)
