    Stopped by Target and remembered to use the scan machine. Looked up SS Jazz since he’s wave mates with Gnaw, and it said no stock in the back, so I assume the wave ain’t there. Gonna save some gas and wait for my Amazon order.

    Walnut Creek Target had zero Marvel Legends, Eternals or otherwise - but thanks to @Skullox they fulfilled my Thena pickup. They did have an army of SS Thrust and one Wreck-gar. One deluxe SS ROTF Bumbles too. For those looking for SS Slug, they had two here as well as Grindor.

    Pleasant Hill had even less, with just a SS Bumblebee and a few Thrust. In the collector section they had a McFarlane Violator and a NECA TMNT Chromedome - both huge figures.

    Nice! For reference, when I look for new listings, I usually use Google and type in something like "target <character name>". That usually finds a link if there is one. Searching in the target app or target.com is crap.

    How many Chromedome's did they have? I'm debating if I should trek over there to try to nab one. Haha

    There was just the one, but you may still catch him if you’re not too far out. The collector’s section isn’t in an obvious spot since P. Hill is a smaller store.

    Yeah, I have tried that technique for Target exclusives before but was striking out on Thena for weeks. I hope Ajak isn’t hard to find…

    Was that the endcap? Find it weird they would put a TF tag in the lego section.

    I think it’s a “Featured” section, maybe from their flyer this week?

    Pleasant Hill Gamestop had 2x SS 48 leader Megatron (“As Seen In Parks”), a vintage Darth Maul and remnants of the Ursa Major Legends wave. Picked up Star-T’Challa, but he was the only one of that wave.

    If I didn’t already have the previous release of that Megatron and it had a voice chip, I’d think long and hard about getting that Megs. The insult game of theme park Megatron is forged to perfection.

    Target at the plant (San Jose):
    1x Masterverse Faker left (box damaged)... make sure you price match target.com ($19.99)
    Plenty of GI Joe Breaker in the back (you need to get the right person... some flat out said they didn't have any).

    Found the second NECA TMNT Frogs set at the Manhattan Beach Target tonight. They only had the one, so this is more of a "they're in the area" heads up.

    They had a couple of Marvel Legends Mobius too, but I think somebody grabbed one of them as I was leaving.
