    1x SS Sideswipe at Walmart on Smith Rd and Quebec (Stapleton). Not much else to report, though they had 2x Slag and 2x Grindor. Also 1x Kup, which I haven't seen for awhile.

    Not a real sighting post but more of a question. I got tired of looking for Kingdom Galvatron with the right shoulders. Last couple of weeks all I see in my area are Cyberverse and Bumblebee stuff.

    I decided to just go ahead and flip the arms like all those youtube clips explained. And after just a couple of minutes I have a correct shoulders Galvatron. Now, one of the shoulders has a stress mark. It’s tiny. Barely noticeable… but I know it’s there. Have any of you try to fix stress marks before? If so what is your method?

    I think a hair dryer or heat gun works well. You just need to let it soften a bit and reform. But if it doesn't, or screws things up/makes things worse, I claim no responsibility :p

    Longmont 119 walmart had 4x BW vintage Optimus Primals. Snagged one for myself as I never had any originals. Man there is so much empty space in the box but cool to have him.

    I wonder when we’ll see Tigatron hit stores? Has anyone got their preorders for him yet?

    I thought about buying them all and offering them here. But to be honest, I would hate to be the guy with 4 of the same toy in my cart.

    I also saw some repackaging at the Bowles Walmart that made me mad. Someone decided to return Cheetor in the Shadow Panther box.

    I keep seeing more of these cases in the area. Too bad people keep doing this.

    I wonder if this is a remnant from the first stock or if these are about to fill in for the holidays.

    Nothing new at Longmont Target, however I was able to find a Kingdom Galvatron and utilize the 25% Target Circle coupon :)

    I thought the SS86 Slugs were new (to town)? Hadn't seem them there before. But nothing all that exciting, that's for sure. Was hoping Origins BB might have cropped up, but no luck.

    I found my Slug at Longmont 119 Walmart about a month ago (they had maybe 2-3 of them then) so it skipped my mind that he was new to the Longmont Target.

    Yeah the BB Origins pegs are still empty. The price tags have been up there for over 3 months now and still nothing :-(

    i was kind of excited to get on here and post that there is a commander class rodimus in the markdown section at the clinton/havana walmart. i was considering just buying it for myself, too.......and then i looked at the top of the box and saw the awful retape job and knew the real figure couldn't have been in there.

    Thanks for the tip! Why does it have to be so far away, though?

    got a swift kick in the balls in regards to the xwing today. target.com says none of the stores anywhere near me are gonna be carrying it. it's an exclusive, but maybe 1/4 of the targets in the state are gonna have it and it's not available online

    Found some loners among the shelves today. Wreck-gar, galvatron, and SS sideswipe were the last ones, as well as a kingdom magnus.
