    probably long gone by now!

    it's okay, Capirus offered one up to me and I have an order in to pickup in Albany if they filled it correctly...but yeah that would have been ideal yesterday when I was there...

    the inventory tracker never showed that was available at Serramonte when I was checking it this morning...maybe I missed it...

    Metreon target has grindor, Wreck-Gar, thrusts making themselves at home...someone got a tracks...

    There was a bad batch mission fleet 4pack of figs...

    Apparently I missed 2 SS86 Slugs at Pasadena East, but did manage to score a Breaker. They’re kept in the back and have to be pulled by an employee.

    Road Rage paint apps are really rough. I was able to compare four of them. None of them were remotely acceptable. I got two in the mail today.

    Wait, I’m confused. Are you comparing the paint apps of the Road Rages that you saw in a store, bought online, or both? I don’t think she’s been seen at a physical US store yet, so that would be a first sighting if my assumption is right.

    Anyone else having an Amazon shipping issue right now? My Wreck-Gar was supposed to be here Saturday and it’s tracking hasn’t updated since the shipping confirmation. Now my Slag is scheduled to arrive tomorrow yet no shipment notification yet.

    Those things are still around? I'm honestly shocked, they've completely dried up where I am. Hell, after only seeing them once, I haven't seen the Voyager wave at all... I've actually seen the current Netflix scalping targets (Bumblebee and Soundwave) more than these guys (shame, if I'd known they'd be this scarce, I'd be +1 Sparkless Seeker).

    At my local Walmart (Chico) I saw the Sparkless seeker twice, one on the shelf and another on the clearance rack missing the minicons. Could have been the same one even. Saw the car once. Deezius minion once. I was frantically checking for Netflix Cheetor at the time, so this was once a day in the mornings until I gave up and ordered Cheetor through pulse. This Willows Walmart somehow manages to have both the newest figures and scarce old ones lingering. Last time I went I snagged a set of retro headmasters when they were first being spotted and saw siege Chromia and Barricade still on the shelves.
