    Just FYI, the case assortment for the SS86 Deluxe is 2 x Kup, 3 x Jazz, and 3 x Blurr, which is why Kup has been pretty hard to find. Most Targets don't seem to be getting more than 1 case at best, and that's just starting to happen now from a 2 week dry spell. Leader Grimlock is 2 to a case, and starting to show up at more places now...Just gotta be diligent at checking, and don't give up when the tough gets going.

    Still no luck finding Grimlock edit: in good news my G2 Selects Megatron showed up. I have no idea how long I've had Battle Tanker but he finally has someone to square up against

    I read this too fast as "Still no f------ Grimlock" which yeah, still works. Sorry you're not having any luck finding him yet!

    Westlake Walgreens had some surprises today. Grabbed the Arcee, left the Smokescreen and the... "Generations Cyber Battalion" Sideswipe (?) behind.

    Between Joe Classified, PS5/XBox and Pops I wouldn’t be surprised if Team Members have had to deal with a lot of crap lately. Even when I worked retail with athletic shoes I’m not sure sneaker releases were as bad as what I’ve heard.

    With the Joes, I’ve heard some wild sh!t, complete with huge conspiracies of networks of Target staff depriving poor collectors of their 4,756th Cobra Trooper for their super necessary display. I actually used to be on a Joe FB until I just realized how toxic so many people on there were.

    I try to get the Team Member’s name if they’re able to find something I ask for so I can give a positive survey and mention them by name. I hope it gives them some sort of reward.

    I live near Pasadena and have a Kup for trade. Funny thing is I found a SS Kup and Jazz, but upon going home they looked funny and my girlfriend was actually the one to point out that it looks different than the box art. Turns out someone replaced the inside with a titans return kup and jazz. Weird thing is, the jazz has black hands and seemingly intermingled parts, but the strings are still intact keeping the figure attached to the inner plastic tray. I returned them and found a kup but no jazz. Makes me wonder if they were factory defects or put into wrong boxes, but yea i’m up for a trade.

    Oh I know about the case assortment, I just really want to get done with my collecting of Transformers as soon as possible. Barring any further SS86 updates to figures or any non-animal Kingdom figures coming other than a future Huffer and possibly Inferno (not interested in Ultra Magnus), I should be done for quite a while. Not a huge fan of anything Beast Wars so Hasbro made the decision for me which is fine by me. With as many of things that have been coming out these last couple months I need a break.

    There is a Primal and Cyclonus at WC Target.

    Also, a case of Voyager Studio Series at WC Target....just not out of the box yet.

    Scored myself a Elf Lego set!

    Forget about the Costa Mesa Target. I got the last Jazz and someone else got the last Kup as I got there. There's still two Blurrs left.

    Target 4S has 3 blur and 1 jazz on the pegs. I was able to get a Kup from the back. Sounded like they had more back there but they are being smart and only selling one per customer.
