    Ordered Rodimus Prime and WreckGar at Entertainment Earth and Rodimus got shipped today but Wreckgar is being shipped in August. Weird but all good and can't wait for Rodimus! Tracking hasn't updated so idk when it's arriving but I hope soon!

    I finally got my Ultimate Krang's Android Body in the mail today from NECA, I ordered it at the end of April.

    Nothing at Target 4S Ranch last night...

    I’ve never understood it given the repeated quality issues with looseness and fragility since the dawning of 3rd party. No one can argue it because you don’t have to look further than the 3rd party section to see it. I get it. Hasbro has it too. But we’re talking mountains of scale in production versus small print runs where a higher percentage have it. Bleh. Still mad my old g3 prime trailers invisible panels are all jacked just because the toy is old.

    I forgot to mention that I also saw the Bumblebee stinger and Bumblebee dropkick two packs at that Madison Target as well. I only saw one of each though. I also saw the new crash combiners, just didn't think much of them

    It's not like there aren't similar issues with looseness and fragility with Mainline figures. As a dude who spends lots of money on third-party figures as well, one thing they generally have on Hasbro is aftermarket support

    Apparently that’s not applicable to my Target, because they’re all gone already lmao

    So wait, t wrecks and the JP set are selling at the exact same time at Target? That doesn't even seem smart on their part

    That doesn't make sense, it's an Amazon exclusive.

    Are you sure it was the TF set?

    Sunnyvale Target today- several Origin Bumblebees but marked up to 27.49! No thanks.
    Shelf tags ready for Worlds Collide set and MPM Optimus Prime, but no reset yet.

    You can price match to cheapest price on Target.com, just tell a SA when your about to self-check out or the cashier

    Some good clearance items at Stonestown, but not much new transformers wise.
    $5 Core Bee finally, though. upload_2021-7-30_13-31-56.jpeg upload_2021-7-30_13-31-41.jpeg

    I haven't watched the movie... and I am not sure if Marvel was really using the movie to promote diversity.... but for super hero , I wish they wore some sort of masks...

    Seriously, though, this was probably meant to come out with the release of the Shang Chi movie and the movie being pushed back to September killed the interest in the figure line. Hasbro is facing major logistics problems right now.
