Target Culver City Jefferson had diddly squat of note.
Finally managed to swing by Blast from the Past in burbank. Still a ton of DJWs collection coming in. Some great ones there but ill let others take a glance for themselves. I personally picked up a set ive been wanting since i started collecting again in 07 and thats the Huffer and Springer botcon set. Theyre inconplete and missing their cyber planet keys and Springers dagger but i dont really care. Theyre from the Derricks collection so incomplete or not theyre freakin cool! Check it oht if you can make it over there. Tons of really cool stuff and apparently they have much more coming in.
Found a few little gems amongst the old mcdonald’s toys at Gone Picking, just down the street from Toys of the Universe in Devonshire. The snarl is for parts, the skywarp has the opening cockpit broken off but is otherwise just incomplete, and the Weirdwolf looked incomplete but beyond having very stiff elbows (didn’t move them out of breaking risk) seems just a bit old. They price as you buy but they were very fair with some other non TF stuff I picked up
Manhattan Beach Target has the Haulathon NECA stuff on an endcap facing the back wall. They had everything except for the accessory set. They were also redoing the TF section when I was there so there may be new stuff.
Plaza Bonita Target has 3 Warrior Elita-1s, 3 NEST Ratchets, 2 Earthspark Megatrons, an Earthspark Bumblebee, a Twitch, 2 86 Sludges, and a Coronation Starscream. GameStop has a MP Nightbird. Macy’s has 9 Ravages, an Iguanus, a Skywarp, a Core Hot Rod, and a Cyberverse Arcee.
H Street Walmart has 8 Ravages, 4 Spikes, 2 SS Shockwaves, 4 Warrior Elita-1s, 9 Jhiaxuses, 2 Junkheaps, 4 Retro Starscreams, a Legacy Galvatron, a Blitzwing, a Coronation Starscream, and an 86 Sludge.
Eastlake Target has a Wheelie, an Iguanus, a Kingdom Soundwave, 3 Warrior Skywarps, 3 Warrior Elita-1, 3 Twitches, 3 Earthspark Megatrons, 4 NEST Ratchets, an Armada Starscream, an 86 Sludge, and the Fallen. Toy section is a mess, with nearly all of the aisles moved (presumably for remodeling.) Transformers aisle is in the same place as it usually is though, only aisle that’s like that. Oh yeah, a Core Thundercracker was there too (only one in the wave there, none in the back), I got it
Eastlake Walmart has 3 Spikes, 2 Ravages, 8 Iguanuses, 2 Skywarps, 2 Warrior Primes, 2 Warrior Elita-1s, a Warrior Skywarp, 4 Jhiaxuses (6 more on the top shelf), a Junkheap, 2 Retro Starscreams, 2 Legacy Galvatrons, a Blitzwing, a Coronation Starscream, and an 86 Sludge. Also the same 7 Wolfangs, 2 Retraxes, and Terrorsaur that are likely going to stay for a while.
DC Westlake Target has a SS 86 Dinobot Sludge, 2 Legacy Evolution Metalhawk and 1 Twincast
They finally shipped out my Tarn and I'm supposed to get it tomorrow. Was yours shipped out?
When I looked at the Amazon profile for Tarn, it looks like there's a delay of almost one to two months in getting in stock, albeit they give a delivery date of March 21st through April 6th.
This is the first transformer in a long time that has taken longer to be sent out and that was not sent out much earlier than it's presumed delivery date
That’s a no so far. I’m still showing an 8-9 ish delivery, but I assume I’ll get updated to sooner if it’s going to ship. It is strange that the wave mates were available for quite a bit prior to this, but I know it’s not as clear cut as it used to be.
I was pretty shocked how easy it was to grab Needlenose from them (who’s great, btw), so that helped calm those nerves in the meantime. Now I can just get angst about all the California Twincast/Metalhawk sightings.
trying to not collect much but kinda want Twincast. If anyone in Sac area sees him please lmk
I did give in and preorder origins Jazz from Target yesterday
Found a Returned Metalhawk at Visalia Walmart, has all of the gear and instructions, Figure is also in good shape!
Nothing new at Target Fashion Island at Bridgepointe other than the re-appearance of Needlenose, but I can confirm that ML Khonshu wave has quietly hit clearance finally.
Brea Target has two Hot Shots and a Sludge.
