    Doesn't matter.... I'm just glad that I never bought the PotP version as a placeholder. I don't even think that was worth $45.

    Still not paying $80 for this Commander class version either. So SS86 Hotrod will remain my "Rodimus" (without the Prime) until I find the Commander version on some type of sale.

    Don’t have the link, but he’s up for order on Walmart’s site for retail.

    Thanks!
    Bought, and arriving Friday.

    Edit: It isn't retail. They have it for $109 when the actual price on HasbroPulse is $80.
    Order canceled. I can wait.

    Almost got me too, $85 at Target is enough, I’m not doing $109 just to save a couple weeks/months compared to a BBTS order.

    yup I totally understand the feeling you’re talking about and if things were equal I’d definitely prefer just to grab in store. Ultimately tho, my main goal is to get the figure more than how I get it so with the distribution in store it’s just way easier and way less time consuming just to preorder through Amazon to guarantee it. I do still pop in targets if I’m near one but I don’t go out of my way anymore

    Rodimus was back up on the Walmart website for retail ($79.99). Scored one, and it should be here on 7/29.

    That's the one I see, I was just wondering if the retail price one was a different link compared to the $109 one sold by Aviv Distribution. Does your order history provide a link to a different product link?

    No, I had to refresh the page with the $109 one. When I go to it now it immediately goes back to the $109 listing.
    Weird.

    It's probably one link and the pricing depends on their own stock, which likely defaults to the third party seller with the figure when they sell out.

    My preorder from Target shipped after a couple delays. Hopefully Galvatron is not far behind.

    Is there some kind of trick to keeping the roof of the trailer tabbed together? There's always a gap on mine.

    Mine was doing that too, but then I reopened the whole thing, closed it up again, and squeezed the sides in towards the front of the trailer and felt a small snap somewhere in there (not a scary snap…a normal one). No gap since.

    He was back up on Target about 15 minutes ago. He went in about 5.
