    I know people are getting them via Amazon and Pulse (soon), but spotted a few of him at Eagan, MN Target. 20191130_163329.jpg

    Mod edit: Also spotted by GoLion at Target in Fairlake, Virginia.

    I spotted two pairs at two different Targets today myself. I posted images in the Virginia sightings thread. They're definitely out there. Good luck with your hunt ladies and gentlemen.

    Apeface is also appearing at Walmarts around the country. I saw one at an Oklahoma City Walmart on Thursday, kinda surprised to see him sitting out but I didn't worry too much about it since I also had one from Amazon.

    Already checked one Walmart today. Paint quality has varied dramatically with figures so I always prefer retail to online.

    Apparantly, Apeface\'s white plastic is not actual plastic, but an inferior nylon-like material.

    Saw him today too at a WM. Didn't say anything because I thought he was seen weeks ago.

    It looks really crappy in hand, I gotta admit.
    He looked so cool in the renders, but in person the white plastic (or nylon) really ruins the toy. Even the preview photos made me think "sure, he's not as good as the renders, but he still looks okay," so I went through with my preorder.

    But, real talk, unless you're a die-hard Apeface fan, I'd give this one a miss. There's some decent engineering alright, and has some good play value, but for a collector, for something you're mostly going to put on a shelf and look at, it's really not that good.

    -looks at mine on the shelf with all my headmaster and targetmaster cons-

    yeah no. He’s pretty great and fun to play with and nice to have a modern apeface to go with with the rest.

    No accounting for taste I suppose.
    (Also I explicitly said he had play value)
