    Dang, that's a little far for me to drive just to get two Fireflys (assuming they're still even there, haha).

    Went to Walmart to look for Retro Headmasters and couldn’t even find a transformer section.

    We HOPE.

    I generally favor Target, but I do admit their self-imposed internal “release dates” get a little annoying. I can understand a retailer wanting to hold stuff back for resets, but in my county (where Targets are mostly cooperative) managers from different stores aren’t always consistent and even when they impose a street date for a reset on “release date”, at times the new plan/product isn’t even out.

    Thankfully some folks here were able to score (like the homies @alkamist and @ahchu ), but the inconsistency is wack. Granted, I may not completely understand it from the store’s end. I do remember from when I worked retail that there were always dumb customers that have idiotic expectations. But if I could see a point for these release dates, they’d be easier to accept.:2c:

    Couldn’t post earlier because the site was all screwy, but as of about an hour ago:

    Jefferson Target has Rattrap, the Kingdom Deluxes, and the SS86 Voyagers.

    Fox Hills Target has Optimus Primal.

    Target delivery today. Jazz should be here tomorrow. Amazon shipment of Primal comes Monday. It’s raining robots this weekend! Now I just need to find Blurr but I can still wait for my Amazon PO.

    Keep an eye out for any earthrise toys, they are clearancing them. Got these for less than 18 bucks. They weren't in the transformers section. 20210131_015950.jpg

    No Transformers of note at Pleasant Hill Target as of 10:30ish today.

    I did pick up the full husky boy Bane wave of DC Multiverse. Still 1-2 full waves left.

    I finally saw, and bought, the only Studio Series 86 Grimlock at the Lodi Wal-mart. Someone tried to hide it on the top shelf. I snagged another Kingdom Cyclonus from a fresh case of Voyagers from the Consumnes River Wal-mart. Someone had already snagged the other one. Also, I grabbed another Kingdom Warpath from the Galt Wal-mart. There is one Studio Series Blurr on the peg. Also, they have one each of the Cyberverse Deluxe Megatron and Shockwave figures for $5 each. AND...there are a few Batcaves for $25 each. Which is better than the $37.72 price that I saw at another Walmart. So the pegs at all the Target stores should be overflowing with Studio Series 86 Deluxe figures tomorrow morning, huh?

    Man, I should've went there earlier. It's about a 25-30min drive but probably be too late to nab them.
