    Jada has made the Western Star Optimus from Bayformers into 1:64 (Matchbox size) with and without the trailer. See below.

    Not sure yet if they will make G1 into 1:64...
    I hope they do!

    Geez. I must be bored right now with nothing to collect. I ended up buying a bunch of 90s X-Men, Spider-Man and Avengers comics from Half Price Books for dirt cheap.

    They're kinda fun to read, but I think I'm enjoying the ads for video games, movies, foods, and other stuff from the early 90s in the comics than anything. LOL

    Which one you go to? My wife's store is the HPB in Northtown. She's done comics there for years and years, though they just took her off of them a couple months ago because they wanted to get some more people experienced with it and not become too dependent on her. I think she misses it though!

    That's the one I went to, yeah. Also went to Hot Comics in Richfield and got a bunch, though they're a bit pricier on some things obviously than HPB.

    If anyone is still looking, the Champlin Target has two Hun-Gurr, one Elita-1, and two Cutthroat.

    Apple Valley Walmart has a set of W3 Terrorcons, and what looks like the remnants of the Nova Star wave (minus Nova Star).

    Beyond that, newest things were a cutthroat and a blot

    Grabbed a Nova Star at AV on Pilot. Got one person I'm checking with otherwise could potentially be up for grabs.

    Great find on Ironhide. I'm looking for him if anyone sees him again.

    I'll keep my eyes peeled!

    He's pretty good. I wish he had some ankle articulation, but overall he's solid. As some reviews point out, he's not transformed correctly in the box and the instructions don't quite show how to get his hood/doors wrapped around correctly, so make sure to check out some reviews, because he's a LOT better when you transform him right.

    Nothing new at Blaine North 109th Target as of last night.

    Got an Amazon shipment with some camping stuff I ordered (going to do a quick BWCA trip in a couple weeks) and randomly there was Punch/Counterpunch in there! I did preorder him a while back, but it was an odd surprise as I didn't even know he had shipped out.
