    I found a full compliment of Studio Series figs at the East Side Target in St Cloud this morning, including Jazz. I knew he was going to be small, but he is really small.

    Just got my Nemesis Prime today (thanks for the help there, T-Hybrid). Honestly, I think the head sculpts are really cool. Over all, he's basically the Strike Noir treatment of 1p black repaints; same figure with a bucket of new weapons. Giza is a cool add-on, but I wish he could sit on NP's shoulder or something. Also, kind of weak that the big arm canons have to attach to the trailer in a way that puts a hole through it, but that's a small quibble for an overall upgrade. Oh, also, the weak hips on Orion Pax don't seem to be a problem on Nemesis Pax.

    So I dunno what's going on at Targets but tons of TFs aren't ringing up at all. Clearanced, new, whatever. Who broke Target?

    Reading your post while at Target I decided to scan a couple TFs, Potp Ldr Prime and Dlx Slug scanned fine at end of ailse scanners.

    Studio Series Leaders, RiD Warriors, and PotP Legends all farted out for me.

    FYI: As part of the latest Target clearance, RiD Team Combiners are going for $20ish. If you've been on the fence with these I'd recommend at least checking one out at that price. I bought all three last Thanksgiving as part of the Black Friday shenanigans for about $18 a piece and while they definitely have limitations they're quite fun at that price.

    (I'll add they make excellent fiddle toys if you like to have something at your desk.)

    That’s a much more reasonable price. Thanks, I’ll have to keep an eye out for those!

    In other news I just picked up the 3 *edit* Terrorcons at the Sartell Walmart. They were the only set in the shelves.

    Oops, yeah, I saw the rest of the TERRORCONS.

    Sorry if I got anyone’s hopes up! I must have Predaking on the mind or something! :)

    Has anyone here ever had anything AFA graded? Is it worth it?

    I have a vintage G.I. Joe thing I'm looking to put on ebay, and I'm trying to decide if grading will truly increase value. Without grading, I'd say it could go for several hundred dollars.

    I'm not an expert on the subject, but from what I understand, it costs about $100 to do...so I would think your packaging needs to be rather minty to bother...otherwise I would think it hard to get back your AFA costs, much less increase profit. Again, though, working off assumptions here.

    Midway Target has wave 2 Prime Masters and SS Jazz(1) and Lockdown(1) I’m only getting an Alchmist Prime so two of him left and three Alpha Prions left. So not much but hopefully a sign of more to come.

    I'd love to get my hands on that Jazz if anyone nearby is willing to grab it for me. Can PayPal, venmo, etc.

    EDIT: Just grabbed him!

    I've slowly gotten into the Studio Series stuff, but mainly sticking to just the first Transformers movie characters as it was the only one I really enjoyed. So far just need the SS Jazz. And are they make a SS 2007 Camaro Bumblebee? I'd rather have that one than the 70s Camaro one.

    So far, my favorite has been Starscream as his transformation is really fun, though his crotch flap (can't think of what else to call it) doesn't stay locked in at all, so I may try some Future polish.

    Also, that Repugnus and Punch/Counterpunch...must have them.

    Just grabbed Jazz from Midway Target. Lockdown still there, looking like a loaf of poop.

    Also 2x SS Brawl.

    Long time lurker checking in:
    Is there any word or rumor of a revision pack with Sludge and Snarl in it coming out anytime soon? This is the kind of thing that killed my love of toy collecting.

    Hasbro has claimed Wave 2 will reappear, but who knows. Not sure who's in Wave 4 with Novastar. Safest bet Might be to order all of Wave 2 from BBTS:
    Transformers Power of the Primes Deluxe Wave 2 Set of 5
