    They are being found at Targets locally so far. I spotted the Leaders last week and saw deluxes and Voyagers remnants at Vadnais Heights Target as well.

    Appreciate the heads up, but I'm on the opposite side of town for that to be worth traveling to, unfortunately.


    Looks like they have yet to show up in the inner city stores. I'll wait and see what happens in the next month or two.


    Damn, another store way out of my travel distance. I have no plans on going south of 394. :(

    I've just gotten my studio series stuff off of HTS so far since they're 15% off right now. Stinger's good, bee is not good, Crowbar and Ratchet I passed on since they're not really anything new. Got Prime and Starscream today, and I like both of them quite a bit, but for some reason Starscream just feels like a more complex version of DOTM deluxe Starscream.... I think he IS, but I haven't really heard anything on him yet. Prime also feels a bit familiar, but both are interesting enough for me to say they're worth it (with the discount).

    But yeah, they're gonna be in retail. Just starting to show up recently.

    Eagan Walmart with a "Clearanced" Rodimus, Grimlock, and Starscream.

    Prices also coming down on the Crash Combiners, but those are properly marked.

    Weird.

    I was just there this afternoon earlier and was gonna post that for people to see if anyone wanted it picked up.

    I kind of went on a Walgreens run after work and a visit to Hot Comics in New Hope. Mainly for Marvel Legends stuff.

    One of the Brooklyn Park stores had their figures looked behind cases. I'm guessing they get stolen often there. LOL

    Been wondering this myself given the last meet-up/Frankiecon was back in September wasn't it?

    I'm kind of interested in Stinger, Prime and maybe Grimlock from the Studio Series, but I'm also watching to see if they will get OS KO'd or just made better by any 3P company. There's not really anything official that I want besides Moonracer/Novastar at the moment.
    After seeing Ready Player One, I'm itching to grab a PG Gundam RX-78-2 kit and a Figma Tracer. :p

    Dropped by Blaine 109th Target over lunch and found tons of Studio Series! I grabbed the Blackout and Grimlock, everything else was there though I think too. OP and Starscream in Voyager and two of each of the deluxe sized ones except only one of the SUV guy who I can never remember the name of. They are in the midst of redeco'ing that store and must have found a couple old Wave 1 PotP cases too bc there were a couple sets of the deluxes of those as well.

    Man, I still haven't run across the leaders. =/
    Speaking of:
    Nothing of note aside from 1 lone Rippersnapper at Bloomington Target. They were stocking other aisles, but it looked like they had already put things out and straightened the TF Aisle.

    I'll have an extra Leader Blackout in a few days up for grabs if anyone is having trouble nailing one down.

    I might take you up on that. I'm holding out hope they'll show on HTS again since I have one of the 20% off email coupons
