    Has anyone seen Ironworks at the East Colonial Target recently? I need to get a second one because mine has an unfortunate paint peeling issue (when the hook joint got unstuck, paint came off, it’s not too bad and it fits in with his dirty deco, but if I can find another...)

    I really hope I find Ironworks and the two Micro sets this week before the sale ends. I'm debating on what Deluxe to pair Ironworks with for the sale... but I suppose it ultimately comes down to what's on the peg with him.

    Obviously, finding an Optimus and Astrotrain would be outstanding, but a long shot.

    If there's nothing else Earthrise-related to get, it's a good opportunity to pick up an extra Weaponizer. It clears the shelves a bit and at half price they're well worth doubling up on.

    If you happen to find 2 (an extra that is there after you claim yours I mean) optimus in a location between Palm Coast and Orange City this week let me know, I plan on checking several locations this week at least once but hopefully twice. I will let you know if I find Astrotrain.

    Thanks man! I just hit Palm Coast early this morning, and Daytona and Port Orange last night. I probably won't get to hunt again until Wednesday or Thursday.

    Hey, quick question: has anyone ever, and I mean ever, scene tiny turbo chargers at retail? I started seeing photos of them and I’m pretty intrigued, especially by the newest wave but it’s occurring to me that where it not for solicitations, I would never have even known they exist. Never seen them anywhere.

    Anyone else having issues with trying to buy the deluxe cyberverse figures from target? Their scanners show they can’t be sold until June 1st?

    No, that’s literally the only place they can be purchased from right now in the area, I bought every single one except for Optimus without any problems.

    Zero Earthrise merchandise at Waterford Lakes Target. Only notable thing was the 2 Studio Series TFTM07 Megatrons. Everything else is early Seige.

    Oviedo Target yesterday had 3 full sets of the latest SS Deluxe wave (Soundwave, 08 Camaro Bee, WW2 Hotrod, Bike sisters) and one Ironworks, as well as two SS '07 Megatrons.

    The saga of the Union Park Super Wal*Mart drought continues. Nothing new since the stock of the Cyberverse repackaged figures. The headless SS
    Soundwave that earned my ire last week is gone... Only to be replaced with a now complete Soundwave sans Laserbeak... Weird shit going on there.

    Somehow my store( daytona target) ended up with 6 grapples and no screamers left. Is he really that disliked? We have 2 SS first movie (07) Megs. Port Orange target had 2 ER screamers and plenty of grapples too. Nothing else so far, so many shockwaves on floor and in the back there is even more. They need to start putting him on deep discount lol.

    Want to hunt today but this rain is really bad right now so getting on I4 is probably not smart. Looking for ER Optimus.

    Wondering the same thing about Grapple. I mean, I think Starscream will definitely sell better being a main tier character, but this Grapple is really good and we haven't gotten one in quite some time. Do you know if they come evenly in a case together?
