Enjoy your spoils. How’re the wings and nose on this one? Same issues the mold has had for years?
Congratulations! Concord/Pleasant Hill is one of my regular hunting grounds and while small, still occasionally carries exclusives. You can score them if you happen to be there on the right day or on the app at the right time, so you definitely came up big there.
I’ve definitely gone that far out of my circle to find stuff and come up empty, so nice work…
I’ve always wondered if this was a x-wing thing (I only have the Poe one). The wingtips on Poe’s definitely sag over time, and I think it may stay that way until they design the wings to be one solid piece where it meets the fuselage.
there's a proto stormtrooper at colma for pickup available
Star Wars Retro Collection Stormtrooper Prototype Edition
it's the same mold as far as I can tell...i don't think there's any way to improve the wings, they're so thin...the only major tweak I wish they would do is make covers to hide the rear landing gear...
they used to incrementally improve the ships by changing bits and upgrading parts with subsequent releases but at this point I think they might lean towards an all-new haslab or something akin to that since general retail is sort of out of the picture the way the prices keep shooting up on these...
i wonder if they'll release Antoc separately though...he does have a numbered card and that will probably tick off people trying to complete their runs (I know I'm still salty over them putting Salacious Crumb/Mouse droid on a card only for a SDCC release that was dang near impossible to get if you didn't go to the con)
Spotted a Kingdom Shadow Panther at Eagle Rock Target yesterday
SS-78 ROTF Sideswipe found at Target Aliso Viejo. Took the only 1 on the shelf.
Same. Left it as all I want is Waspinator
We're overdue on new kingdom voyagers. I want my white tiger already.
Walnut Creek had one Kingdom Waspinator and one SS Grindor, nothing else of TF note.
For Marvel Legends there was a peg full of Ikaris, 2 Thena and 4 Mobius on their own pegs. All the Mobius looked like Loki had mutilated their lunch. (The figures were fine, they just didn’t look happy.)
Everybody, everywhere wants their white tiger.
Problem is they're probably stuck at sea in one of the 250,000 trailers drifting.
Waiting on a miracle.
And a lot of truck drivers
indeed they could be in one of those cargo on one of the ships still waiting to be docked ....
Plaza Bonita Target has 3 Dracodons, a Blurr, a Paleotrex, and 2 Barricade packs.
H Street Walmart has 4 Thrusts, 4 Retro Cheetors, and a Retro Rattrap.
Eastlake Target has 2 Core Megatrons, 3 Core Dracodons, and 2x of all the Buzzworthy 2-packs.
Eastlake Walmart has 2 Retro Rattraps. For RED, 5 Bumblebees, 3 Starscreams, 2 Cheetors, and a Soundwave.
Yesterday was so fun I decided to do it again..
Readers of this thread probably know I've been hunting this for a while...
This time a 70ish minute trek to remote (for me) Albany...
Thanks to Capirus who offered me one found over the weekend....didnt end up needing it because my obsessive compulsive nature kept checking the app at 5am even after that and saw Albany got them in for pickup ..thanks for thinking about me!
Picked up another couple rainbow stormtroopers since I was going out there...same colors I already had though...another free Gummi worms pack...oh, upon further review it is granola bar and beef Jerry strip package...
Boy that store is huge...maybe twice Colma on two levels...six pegs of just eternals figures(no makkari, sprite)and the deviant, mobius by the dozen...one thena...(sadly no McFarlane batcave, my last grail for now)...grindor, buzzworthy 2packs, thrust of course, nothing else notable but fuller shelves in general ...
Anderson Walmart has 2 ss86 kup and blurr, 1 wreckgar, and 3 thrust. But can't forget the one extra flat tracks whos missing an arm, poor guy.
Big thanks for your review !! next time I would hunt over there if I get a day off !!! Very entertaining!!
I hope you will find Tigatron and stash one for me !!
i haven't seen him yet, but will keep an eye out...
it was an interesting trip to get there...parallel to Eastshore Highway...walking behind industrial buildings parallel to the freeway...not a place I'd be going on a regular basis unless something special is available for pickup there...
Target Vallejo just put out these Megatron statues to go with Prime if you bought one of those. They also have the DC Multiverse Green Lantern 2-pack as well as their exclusive Batwoman with BAF piece.
Bridgepointe Parkway target. One grindor, 3 bee and barricade 2 packs, 1 jazz, and 1 thrust.
7 mobius, 2 ikaris.
bunch of motu stuff but didn’t look through it.
still have mondo geckos and muckmans. The rest of the me as are mostly striped gremlins, king kongs, evil dead 2 ash, and both colored and black and white Frankenstein.
Burbank Empire Center Target has some Galvatron & Ultra Magnus. (I took the Gnaw. Sorry!)
Fixed or not fixed shoulders on Galvatron? Did you notice?
