    Yep, so hopefully everyone knows that FedEx can and will hold things in Tracy, CA for a while.

    They also hold onto things at various locations. Osseo (sp?), MN is another I have seen BBTS stuff get held at.

    Osseo not so much. It’s not that they hold stuff there, they just never scan departing packages. It can say Osseo for 3-4 days but your next package location is likely the facility that will deliver it.

    I always heard that once they get enough packages in a particular location that's when they will ship things out to the next location in the delivery process. Essentially If they can't fill up trucks for a particular zone they will sit on boxes till they do. Unfortunately I've heard a lot of the food fresh services have dumped FedEx because of that.

    If you have a package stuck somewhere get in touch with customer service. Whence I do that they start moving the next day.

    For FedEx, you need to wait until it has missed it's delivery date before you can do a tracer, even when way before the delivery date you know dang well it is not going to make it based on its current location. It is especially hard to push them when it has left a depot as the CS reps will milk that excuse as a reason for "further patience"

    Picked up Wreck-Gar and Thrust at Target Vallejo. One Thrust left. Price rang up at $26.99 which was nice.

    BB Thrust spotted at Westlake, looks like someone put one back since the earlier report. No sign of Wreck-Gar, though.

    Chula Vista 3rd Ave 99 Cents Store has 5 Pteraxadons, 4 Aimless, 2 Lionizers, 2 Smashdowns, and 2 Calibursts. Bought an Aimless and Caliburst, but those don’t have impact on the numbers I just listed. Now just wish I had Blowpipe for the Decepticon Targetmaster I DO have.

    Plaza Bonita Target has a Barricade/Bee pack, 4 Thrusts, a Dracodon, 2 Core Primes, 2 Core Megatrons, and 2 Core Soundwaves. Also, Kingdom Wave 3 Deluxes! Nabbed a Tracks and Wingfinger, as well as a Scorponok in the cart. 3 Tracks and Wingfingers, as well as a Scorponok are still there (oh yeah, and 2 of the Wheeljack repack).

    H Street Walmart has nothing.

    Eastlake Target has a Deluxe Grimlock, 2 Dracodons, 2 Core Primes, 2 Core Megatrons, 3 Core Soundwaves, 2 Barricade/Bee packs, a Dropkick/Bee pack, a Stinger/Bee pack, 4 T-Wreckses, a Wingfinger, and a Wheeljack.

    Eastlake Walmart has nothing of note.
