    I found Hun-Gurrr just now at Minnetonka Target, 7 and 101. None left and no Elita-1. Also two Tailgates and a Battleslash.

    Eagan Wal-Mart with at least one $13 Nitro if you don't mind his head being loose and presumably somewhere in the box.

    That's why I say "presumably." That particular Nitro has been there since that wave first hit stores months ago. I'm pretty sure someone opened it at one point as the tape seal is gone.

    Went to the Minnetonka TRU to see if their closing down has dropped anything good in price yet, but not really. (The Mega Bloks Technodrome I'm interested in is still higher priced than I want to pay right now.)

    I do have to say...how the HECK did they get in so many Combiner Wars G2 Superior sets!? There were boxes of them down three different aisles.

    So did anyone here buy MP-711? And still have it MISB?
    I’m looking to swap mine as the box is a little dinged up and is double taped. I’m thinking of sending to AFA and with these conditions it will get rejected. Anyhoo send me a message my way

    Looks like Hun-Gurr and Elita-1 are on HTS now. 15% off code with UNPLUG18.

    Wish they still had free shipping over X amount.

    Don't worry too much about it at the moment, both are still saying "Insufficient Inventory."

    So, with TRU now likely shutting down entirely, any guesses on who will get the retail exclusive for future Masterpieces? Hasbro seems serious about pushing the Movie Masterpieces specifically.

    Given the silence we've been getting for new MPs in general, I'm wondering if MPs even have a future. There MIGHT be a v3 Optimus on the horizon, but given it's been so long since we've heard any announcements for anything new after Dinobot and movie Ironhide outside of repaints.

    But if I were to guess, I'd have to say probably some online retailer like BBTS or maybe Amazon would be where any future exclusives go.

    That or they'd make it so like that Kickstarter/Patreon thing Hasbro is doing for larger toys is the only way to get stuff.

    Children's Palace, KB Toys and now TRU. Toy stores have gone the way of the dinosaur. I officially have to grow up now Geoffrey.

    It's really weird for me... I grew up in the middle of nowhere and my family was dirt poor, so going to TRU was always a HUGE deal. After I married my wife, our first few anniversaries were going up to the cities so I could get her a nice dinner and I could go to TRU.
    After moving up here a few years ago, going to TRU was more commonplace, but I don't think it's ever not been something weirdly special to me.
    Huh. Welp, this day sucks.

    Also, the worst part about this for me is sometimes I like drivin' around and windowshopping (something I've done since I was a kid with no money), just as a sort of meditative/calming thing, and now I just have Target to go to... Walmart, I guess, but all the Walmarts around here are in such weird places.

    Speaking of:
    Nothing new at Shakopee Walmart.

    Has there been any discount at TRU on Cybertron? That thing was crazy overpriced but with it going out of business, it might finally be coming down to reasonable prices.

    For anyone that doesn't venture too far outside of this thread, there's currently a 20% eBay sale right now: PSPRING20
    Seems to work for anything over $25 up to $500. The discount is capped at $100 so you can still buy something over $500, you just won't save more than $100. Good till like 10pm tonight. I think that's the best coupon I've seen eBay do.

    So, are we doing a candle-light vigil outside Burnsville TRU tomorrow?
