    God dangit, Toys R Us. You can't even do a store closing liquidation right.

    No that's right. Everything defaults to full price amd then ratchets down as the liquidation continues.

    ...That could mean just about anywhere in the TC area. 35 or 35E/W? North or South side? City? Cross street is even better. :) 

    I can never remember where that one is either, other than nowhere near me so not usually worth worrying about.

    It's the one off of 35W on cliff, south Metro right before most of Bville. There's not really a cross street. That's why it's hidden, because it's near NOTHING.

    Employees I've talked to there have said, "We usually get new things like a week or two after everyone else because we get forgotten"
    On the other hand, it got a lot of TF5 stuff before other places in the area, so *SHRUG*

    Hey did somebody on here say they have an extra Blackout? If so I'd be interested.

    I had ordered one from HTS for $50 before buying the one Kham posted. It's yours if you want it.

    All this WSP talk keeps making me think of the song...


    Also, nothing new at EP target as of yesterday. If you're into Jaegers and Kaiju, the B&N there has Obsidion Fury, Gipsy Avenger, and Raijin. I will say, the Tamashii Kaiju look really good, but have basically no articulation, so I'm going to return the one I bought. $40 should at least get you some moving legs.The Jargers on the other hand are a million times better than the stuff NECA put out for the first movie IMO

    Probably somebody clicked something wrong at corporate. I dated somebody who managed mens sportswear for Target. One day at work she accidently put a bunch of new merch on clearance and it apparently cost Target a million dollars. Her manager was like, "Meh...it happens."

    Went out looking for a Moonracer and found nothing.
    Brooklyn Center Target has some wave 2 deluxes (3xRippersnapper, 1xSnarl, 1xSludge) and they surprisingly had some Last Knight deluxes/voyagers/leaders still on shelves.
    Brooklyn Center Walmart has a PotP Grimlock. Brooklyn Park Target has a Grimlock as well.

    Were the Studio Series supposed to be hitting retail now or are they some kind of (online) exclusive? Everyone and their dog seems to have the Studio Series TFs, but I don't see any of them at Target or Walmart.
    Sorry if this question annoys people because it looks like 100 things are being released and I have no clue what's been released and where.
