    Ok so Thrust is starting to show up all over. Seems to be more in Broward than Dade though. I took this pic at Sawgrass. Picked the nicest one and left the rest hoping collectors get them before the scalpers swoop in.

    Yo seriously! Loving the new He-Man collection. Walmart at lest knows how to restock.

    On topic: just hit Miramar Target off I-75. No Thrusts. Only those kiddie animated series bots.

    I happen to have a Baroness/COIL MISB xD. I picked it up trying to help a "collector" (who I had helped get stuff b4) only to find out he was scalping the extras, so I kept it and told him to pound sand. But I don't collect Joes, ended up forgetting to return it and kept it as trade leverage, or to go to a proper good home if the time ever comes :p 

    BTW, if anyone in Daytona Beach needs a Thrust, lmk, I placed a hold on one and I'm not gonna pick it up, can release it at your convenience

    Still waiting for a sighting in southwest Florida before I go looking for a Thrust... Also would like to know if anyone around here has still seen Scrapface or Hotlink around, kinda need them now.

    In the meantime, there's a toy shop opening this weekend in Bonita Springs. Transformers selection is pretty random, the dead Earthrise Optimus, Redwing, Combiner Wars Computron, reissue Hot Rod, MPM Megatron, CW G2 Superion, some Last Knight leaders, some Thrilling 30 deluxes. Paying collector shop prices but nothing's too far off what it goes for on eBay.

    I was 2 blocks from Sawgrass yesterday and missed out on Thrust anyway. LOL. Hoping I'll get lucky and find him eventually.

    Nothing new in Wesley Chapel or Zephyrhills last I saw. I see SS 86 and Buzzworthy Bumblebee are showing up. Hope they hit here soon.

    Let me know if you ever feel ready to trade. The Joe bug bit hard, but Baroness eluded me. I can’t bring myself to buy on eBay...makes the hunt less fun but a trade could be fun. PM if you want to discuss. I’m in Volusia.

    Walmart at 11225 Tamiami Trl N in Naples has 4x Elita-1, 1x Bumblebee, and 1x Netflix Wheeljack.

    Tuesday Morning in Naples had 1 each of Pteraxadon and Aimless for $3.99 each, as well as 1x Roadhandler & Swindler, 2x Topshot & Flak, and 2x Blackjack & Hyperdrive for $7.99 each. I took the one Aimless. They also had a Marvel Legends Luke Cage & Claire Temple 2-pack for $14.99.

    Target in Tarpon Bay Plaza in Naples had just 1 Pounce and Wingspan 2-pack, 1 SS Scavenger, and a few Micromasters. They had some Botbots on clearance, too.

    I'm glad Transformers and Marvel Legends are mostly easy to grab. Some exclusives are a pain but online I can find most at retail.

    I've basically had to give up NECAs cartoon Ninja Turtles and GI Joe Classified. Which sucks cause those two are such a big part of my childhood. But when main characters are so difficult to get a hold of I'm not giving in to these absurd scalper prices.
