    It doesn't look like he's register locked, since those who found him were able to buy him with no problem. Then again the strictness of street dates varies from store to store so who knows.

    After going up and down California this month and checking everything along the way I’m really beginning to feel the empty shelves is the result of distribution issues and logistical challenges.

    The Hasbro rep I ran into said they've been struggling to get their product on shore from the cargo ships so that's probably part of it

    I feel that, every item I pre order from Bandai seems to have a one month push back from their shipping date, seems to be the logistic issues.

    Got this guy from Amazon yesterday because I can't find jack for new stuff in the local Targets and Walmarts around the eastern Sacramento metropolitan area.

    20210722_204042.jpg

    Also placed an order for Rodimus because a Target employee told me that they are not gonna carry him on the shelves. Ordering them online is how I've gotten both Commander Class Jetfire and Sky Lynx, so why not Rodimus? :rolleyes: 

    I really wish that Toys'R'Us would come back and Hobby Lobby, which replaced the TrU in Citrus Heights, would go out of business. :mad: :(

    Case in point about what I said above:

    20210723_144111.jpg

    This is Citrus Heights Target at Birdcage.

    Orangevale Walmart is unchanged. I picked up one of the peg-warming Netflix Cheetors.

    I would kill for TRU to come back. If Bain Capital had not been Greedy Assholes and sold TRU to the Canadian version instead of letting it go under we would have a LOT of options.

    As for Hobby Lobby I want nothing to do with them, just like Chick Fil A

    Hi everyone, I don’t know where exactly to post this but …. Here you go…
    For those who have not purchase the Transformers: A Visual History book yet and have always been wanting one … now is your chance!

    Transformers: A Visual History (Limited Edition) is on sale on Amazon.

    Original price is $99.99
    Right now it’s on sale for: $57.05

    Free shipping if you have Amazon Prime.

    In my opinion, It’s a great deal for a Limited Edition version.

    Since it is so boring out there….
    Let’s rate these chicken burgers in a scale of 1 to 10 (10 is best) comparing chick-Fil-A, KFC, McD (Crispy chicken sandwiches)

    CFA > KFC > McD, but I still find Popeye's to be the superior chicken sandwich.

    The hack to use is ordering ahead on the app so you can just park, check in, and chew within minutes.

    CFA/Popeyes and then everyone else. I have yet to try BK’s Ch’king.

    For those into the grilled variety, Fuddrucker’s has a secretly good grilled chicken sandwich.
