    I think people have bought their fill of SS86 wave one. I saw 6 Grimlocks at one Target and 4x Deluxes at Walmart.

    Was able to get the new Kingdom Deluxes, but haven’t seen the Voyagers yet or Netflix wave 3 yet.

    I know the feeling. These days you can pretty much get any of these figures online. The only problem is that most of the time, online retailers aren't getting their stock as soon as B&M retail, so you can pre-order, but you might have to wait a month or two, while others are finding them in store.

    It seems like I'm not the only person finding the single Kingdom Arcee figure. Is she short-packed in this current Transformers Kingdom wave? Thx.

    So here's my little Unicron story.

    I got the notice yesterday that it had shipped, and it was scheduled to arrive today.

    When it comes to deliveries, I have two problems: I work nights, meaning I sleep through the arrival of most packages, and my intercom system to buzz people into the building doesn't always wake me up (when it even works, which is less than half the time).

    I didn't want them to leave this ginormous package in front of my building, nor did I want them to take it back and get stuck in a game of "Will they come back?" "Which FedEx location is it at?" "Can I come to get it now or is it still on a truck somewhere?"

    So I had the bright idea to jump onto FedEx's website and have them divert the delivery to the nearest drop-off point, which happened to be a Target. "Great," I thought. "I can pick it up at my leisure and check the store at the same time. Win-win." And that part worked great; went to Target and picked it up, no fuss.

    And then I couldn't get the goddamn thing into my car. Not in the trunk, not in the backseat, not in the passenger's seat. Couldn't get the box through the damn doors.

    For 15 minutes, I'm in the Target parking lot looking like a moron, trying to cajole this thing into my car like some shitty game of Tetris. Took it out of the larger shipping box, nope. Took it out of the inner Unicron-themed box, nope. Separated the Styrofoam packing pieces so they'd fit in the trunk, no they would not. I could take the Unicron globe out of the Styrofam and it'd fit, but then the damn thing would just be rolling around the whole time. I had to drive around with the Unicron globe popping out from the backseat like some kind of cartoon bomb. And I couldn't just leave all that packaging in the parking lot, so I had to disassemble both huge boxes, fold them up, and shove them into the trunk.

    Long story short, I should've just woke up earlier.

    I am so sorry (but I still can't help but laugh, haha). At least you got a great story out of it.

    Absolutely, positively shocked to the depths of my being that Huntington Beach Walmart off of Beach Boulevard actually had something new.

    They have the wave 3 Netflix Deluxes on the pegs and I just got a Deep Cover and an Army Drone, 10 minutes before they closed tonight. There is still one of each of the Deep Cover, Army Drone, and two of the Sparkless Bots. I did not see any Cheetors. If you guys are looking for them, come in tomorrow morning at opening.

    Ebay:
    McFadden WM had the two WFC Netflix grunt repaints from wave 3. I was able to get Deepcover. Need WFC Netflix Cheetor and Dinobot still. Also found a lone retro automorphin flip head red ranger.

    So does that mean more of these are stocked somewhere too? I'd like to finish the first wave before they do wave 2 with Trini and probably Tommy.

    You didn't get Deep Cover? Annoyingly it is so close yet so far, the only one I need/want from this wave. I can't go today and it probably won't stick around very long.
