    Only one of the 3 Culver City Targets participated in this Haulathon thing, the one on South La Cienega.

    They had:
    TMNT 4-pack (just 1, now gone)
    TMNT Pizza Monster
    TMNT Metalhead
    TMNT Glow in the Dark Muckman
    Evil Dead Ash
    Back to the Future Griff
    Universal Wolf Man (black and white version)

    No Demona, unfortunately the only one I was after.

    So now the Studio Series wave finally shows up... let's hope it hits SoCal as well, dying to finally get Perceptor and the other 3.

    The size of these new figures for price is really sad. I saw Ratchet and Brawn at TFCon and was sooo disappointed. I mean I'll probably still get them but it gets tough when I remember what a deluxe, voyager, and leader were sized at.

    Indeed so small.... vehicle mode of Brawn is the size of Cliffjumper. Cut cost in size, but still have great molding details. And looking at the bright side, smaller they are, Brawn can fit in my chest pocket on my shirt. He goes to work with me.

    Nothing but the new Buzzworthy toys at the Manhattan Beach Target. Their NECA section is usually pretty good, I thought for sure they'd be in on this Haulathon thing.

    Stopped by my two closest tonight also, Bayfair and Hesperian Blvd in San Leandro. Not a thing to note. Yeah, NECA sections as per the usual. No organization, no sign of tags or cleanup. I wonder if they'll even get any stock in or if this is just going to be limited Targets around. What a joke. I hope they made a huge stock for their online presence at least.

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and thought I would share my transformer hunt/sighting. Yesterday I was able to pick up the newest studio series wave at the REDONDO BEACH TARGET near the southbay galleria, that includes bb movie ratchet, wheeljack, brawn, and the animated movie PERCEPTOR. They were also priced at $18.99 each at checkout. Happy hunting everyone.

    2 legacy bulkhead (grab 1) and 1 legacy blaster in pico rivera target. Weird thing is they're not at the usual TF section, I found them on anime figure section.

    Plaza Bonita Target has 14 Dracodons, 2 Wingfingers, 4 Origin Bees, and 3 Sweeps. Looked in the back, and while there were no SS Deluxes, there was Legacy! Got a Bulkhead. Blaster’s in the back as well. No idea if there’s more, but putting it out there that they’re here!

    Eastlake Target has a Dracodon, 5 Cyberverse Arcees, 4 Origin Bees, a Wreck-Gar, 2 Sweeps, a Tigatron, 2 Beast Megatrons, and 7 Grindors. No SS in the back, unsure about Legacy.

    Eastlake Walmart has 2 Core Shockwaves, 2 Dracodons, a Cyberverse Arcee, a Kup, a Waspinator, 2 Rhinox, 5 Tigatrons, and 3 Sweeps, alongside a RED Bumblebee. For Retro BW, 6 Tigatrons, 7 Scorponoks, and a Megatron.

    Yeah most likely, I actually made two trips to that store first in the morning around 9am(didn't have anything except those shelf warming bb origin figs.) and the second trip at around 2pm is when I saw the new figs, they did have 1 more set when I left. It's just so random as to when they stock the figures sometimes, I use to see them in the mornings when they open but now its either mid-day or evenings. Happy Hunting
