    1 Netflix Primal left at Abingdon Walmart. They also had a ton of Kingdom Wave 1 and Netflix deluxes. Abingdon and Bel Air Targets are looking pretty bare, with Abingdon having a few Kingdom Wave 2 deluxes. I also picked up my Best Buy online order for Kingdom Scorponok at the Bel Air location so keep checking there too. Target online pushed back preorders for Wave 3 to August 5 now.

    Congratulations.
    Not only for finding the ark, but for showing a completed target reset.
    Not only do I see the $169,99 tag for the ark, but also the $84.99 rodimus/commander tag.

    Note: This may be the first US Retail Sighting.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Just posted in News and Rumors. Had staff scan for Rodimus but none in stock. The rest of the TF section looked as bare as it has for the past month.

    I wonder how many stores are actually going to carry these 2. I think last time around only 2 stores (i think within 50 miles) carried scorponok and a handful carried sky lynx.

    Bare but with promise.
    Proof that, indeed, rodimus & the ark will make it to store shelves.

    I stopped by Abingdon Target 10 mins after finding Ark at Bel Air and they didn’t have anything new or room for Ark. They did curiously have an empty spot for a $79.99 Commander TRA. I doubt that’s still there from Skylynx. Maybe they’ll have Rodimus $5 cheaper.

    Actually the $79.99 tag is for sky lynx.
    That tag has been there for months now on the odd chance that Target actually restocked the linx.
    Your first sighting pic of the ark shows the new tag and new price for both rodimus & the ark.

    And congrats on first news credit.

    I can't even remember the last time I bought a new TF in a store. Probably when I was on vacation in Florida where they actually had something to buy. LOL

    I was at the Salisbury Target this past Saturday and they only had 5 Transformers on the shelf. 2 Deluxes and 3 Core class. All old.

    Thanks for the tip! I grabbed one and there was one left on the shelf, but Extrazero said it was gone by the time he got there.

    Buzzworthy Bee Origins and Worlds Collide in stock at Bel Air Target. Nothing else of note unless you want the “chrome” Super7 Optimus figure.

    That sucks. I got lucky and got there just as they were finishing stocking that aisle. There were 3 more Worlds Collide when I left. I highly recommend Origins Bee. Great little figure but only worth the $22.99 asking price because of the nostalgia. Let us know if you find anything interesting at Abingdon. I’m still looking for Kingdom Galvatron, Rodimus, and SS86 Slug. Target shipped my T-Wrecks this afternoon.

    I was at Abingdon this morning. Nothing but some wave 2 Kingdom deluxes.

    Nothing interesting at Abingdon, but they are putting out toy stock further up the aisles, so who knows.

    On to White Marsh.

    That’s my circuit as well. Bel Air to Abingdon to White Marsh to Towson to Cockeysville and back home tired, sweaty, and usually empty-handed. Been getting lucky lately though.

    Well, nothing at White Marsh. Oh well, it was a nice excuse to listen to podcasts.

    Just grabbed a Worlds Collide pack at Frederick Target.
