    So how are we going to distinguish that kind of repack compared to what's going on with ER dudes in Kingdom?

    Is there any difference between this prime and the earthrise one? Would be nice if they painted his "belt buckle" yellow

    Oof! 17 bones for that BWBB 2 pack? A real recipe for a shelfwarmer. I kinda feel bad for that lumpy little bumblebee, he’s basically DOA at this point, but who knows? Perhaps the hasbro gods know when to play the bumblebee card.

    People are buying Megatrons here in MN right now. So if it's street dated they're not programmatically enforced.

    Street date wasn't an issue for me regarding the '86 Voyagers despite their street date being on the 1st of February, and I got the previous SS Voyager wave (Blitzwing/Skipjack) on September. Either way, I'm not gonna hunt 'til Saturday, and if PopFindr actually gets their act together, maybe I can get Megs earlier. For right now, I'm just gonna say: street dating things is just weird, don't know why Target's suddenly started enforcing this (reference: I just found out that was a thing when Doubledealer was first sighted) when Walmart can just throw whatever they want a few days after they're first sighted and call it a day (happened with the Cliffjumper/Topspin/Soundwave wave) without dealing with street-date. God, post-TRU feels like a post-apocalyptic hellscape.

    Screw everything, I just want my purple T-rex duke it out with Impactor and Hot House!

    It’s been an issue since last year with SIEGE voyagers(and later Studio Series leaders) getting streetdated during spring and summer despite being sold at Target since December 2018. The streetdating can start at random at Target and their corporate management has yet to fix it.

    And let's not forget the embarassment that was Studio Series Overload, where it got labeled as a Voyager, couldn't scan (the only figure I've ever had that couldn't scan at check-out), and was worth 30 dollars instead of the usual 50 (that though, I'm not going to complain about).

    I assume Kingdom's Leader OP is the same as the Earthrise? No color differences and what not?

    It's 087-16-6009 now, I believe.

    Edit: Also sorry G1_Fanatic, I think I quoted the wrong person.

    The rest of Kingdom is showing up, too, at Targets. (This is from Carmel/Westfield, Indiana.)
