    Walmart on Gall blvd and the one on SR 54 E had the Netflix figures. Sadly no Hotlinks but I saw Sideswipe, Hound, Decepticon Mirage, Scrapface, Megatron and Magnus. Picked up Megatron, Mirage and Scrapface at Gall blvd. No Megatrons left but there are some deluxes left. Can anyone help me out with Hotlink?

    Has anyone in the Jax area seen Studio Series Shockwave? I’ve never seen him in person.

    Swung by Target at San Carlos Blvd (Iona/Ft Myers) on Friday. New-ish stuff was a Cyberverse Ultra Clobber and a Studio Series Mixmaster. Surprisingly, there was also now a mint new TF:p rime Beast Hunters Smokescreen(!!!) there. It could have been a return, but based on the low sales/turnover and slow restocking at this location, I'm betting he was just rescued from their Bermuda Triangle of a stockroom.

    Waterford Lakes Target had the Cyberverse Deluxe Hot Rod and Grimlock (the Maccadam build a figure toys). Of course those are the two I don't want. BOLO for Arcee and Thunderhowl.

    How is Hot Rod in person? I love the character but the photos make this toy look really unfinished.

    I wasn't all that impressed. The vehicle mode photos reminded me a lot of RID Sideswipe.

    Thats a shame. This line has some big winners and it makes the lackluster ones really stand out.

    Walmart employees really don't care do they? That is one of the worst returns I've seen.

    The worst part is seeing such a desirable figure in that condition. They aren’t just a jerk for swapping and returning; a big part of the responsibility here is on the store that allowed this to happen. I feel like they are more of a jerk for abusing the crap out of rare stuff like that.
