    2 Rungs? 2 Rungs? That means I missed Slitherfang!

    Yup. I didn't see any when I was there. i picked up Rung for myself since I'm a big fan of the comics and never saw him in the Seige line.

    Really? That’s awesome, thank you! I wonder why they don’t show up on any inventory checkers, everybody wants to tell me that they are sold out everywhere in Florida.

    My Jax friends. If you see another Double Dealer please let me know, or if you can pick it up I’m good for it. Thanks.

    ok guys, i know this is off-topic but these past few days of "preorder" nonsense from Target especially have driven me over the edge. i spent hours today refreshing the effing Target page for the upcoming exclusive Storm/Thunderbird two-pack. i take a work call for 30 minutes and the thing sells out immediately.

    everybody i've dealt with here in this topic has been aces. i hope to continue positive relationships. if any of you can help me get one of these sets whenever it eventually appears, i'll 1) be forever grateful and 2) make it more than worth your while. [i won't be rewarding any bastard scalpers by any means, i'd rather burn my money than enrich a parasite] i've done a lot of soul searching since this COVID crap began (i'm sure we all have) and i'm going to be making some meaningful changes in the future. one of those ways will be divesting myself of the bulk of my collection to focus on the stuff i really want. one of these things is this First Appearance Storm. i hope to shower whomever helps in securing this pack with whatever of my soon-to-be-shrunken collection to compensate (on top of money as well, of course).

    ANYWAY, rant over (for now)! there were no new TFs at Oveido or Sodo Target this morning. however, since you're looking NothingHead, there were four ER Primes when i was there this morning. he's a fantastic figure, though i also just got my Alternate Universe Prime (i'll be working on creating a "death bed" for him) and have the Netflix/Walmart one preordered as well -- he's probably going to be returned because TOO MANY PRIMES!

    Awesome. Thanks man. I will 100% hit you up on that offer when it comes to that time. I'll look out for people on here only as well. I cannot stand the scalping I see in central FL but I understand it all the same. What really bothers me most like you said is the theft, people returning other figures in box. It is the worst part of toy hunting, having to see that.

    087-16-4497, that's the DCPI for Sky Lynx and he's showing as in-stock on Popfindr. he's been confirmed in Alabama. unfortunately, that number doesn't seem to be in the *Target* system. i just dealt with the nicest, most collector friendly Target employee ever at the Oveido store. she had just helped some guy retrieve over 5 Funko Pops (booooo!) from the back and was more than happy to try and find SL for me. we went through their in-store devices, the website, the app, everything. she even asked where i found the number in case there was something else she could do. she was great and a nice reminder of just how important kindness can be.

    long story short, no Sky Lynx on the shelves in central Florida just yet but he should be appearing soon. of particular note because yesterday was the 51st anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing!

    Oveido Target does have the full wave 4 set of 8 packs for Botbots but i've called it quits. i've got tons of the little guys and it was really just buying-to-buy.

    Just picked up a Scorp from the Kissimmee Target. Nice lady took a lot of time to get it down from the stacks in the back. From what she told me I gather they are transitioning many of the toy isles this week and the larger Orlando stores should have the all new spots for the big bots after the swap. I just checked popfindr to see that it was in stock in the first place. It looks like only the major stores have gotten them in now: Kissimmee, Millenia and Hunter's Creek near me.

    Just plugged it into Popfindr for the Jax area. Target in Argyle is showing 2 each. I personally will wait for my TFSource order. I don't want to drive across the Buckman and pay $20 in taxes.
