    From what I’ve read, people are waiting for Targets to open to get those Vipers and each store is getting 6 at a time. I’m so glad I didn’t even try collecting Classified.

    If anyone happens to spot any Kingdom or SS86 figures in the Orlando/UCF area I would really appreciate the callout! Thanks!

    I'll never forget this awesome thread helped me get my hands on Siege Ratchet at Walgreens in the middle of a workday.

    I'll let you know if you'll do the same!

    Yeah, my hopes aren't high. I was lucky as hell to find a Baroness at Target back in August, and that was only thanks to Popfindr working accurately at the time. I've been wanting heavily detailed, heavily articulated 6" Joes for 20 years, so Classified is kind of a dream line for me, but also kind of a nightmare. Luckily I'm not trying to be a completist, so I'm not stressing or obsessing too much. I have the three I wanted the most so far: all-black Snake Eyes, Baroness, and light blue Cobra Commander. I would like a Viper and the new repainted Roadblock, but then I'm going to chill until they announce Chuckles, Sci-Fi, Lifeline, regular Storm Shadow, and Iron Grenadier Destro.

    So happy to hear Headmasters are showing up. I haven’t looked in the central Florida area yet but I’ll be out soon. Give a shout if they show up :)

    Nothing new at NSB or Port Orange Walmart.
    Port Orange Target has the Core Bumblebee Sets and 2 Leader Kingdom OP. Nothing else.

    If anyone can be of assistance in acquiring the Walmart Exclusive Retro Headmasters I’ll make it worth your effort.

    Was very close to a SS86 Scourge last night at Target in Merritt Island, but was stopped, like with Jazz, by the street date. Catch me there first thing in the AM on 02/01...

    Just checked colonial big Walmart near Waterford and no headmasters.

    Had some kingdom stuff but I’m not following that so not sure if that’s in demand.

    I stopped by the University/Goldenrod Target in Winter Park around 9:45 AM, and bought the last SS86 Hot Rod on the shelf. They didn't have any Scourges or any other SS86 or Kingdom stuff. Sorry, folks.

    But between when I was last there on Monday night and this morning, they have moved a lot of the older, unpopular stuff from the action figure aisle onto clearance endcaps. If you want Marvel Legends Storm/Thunderbird 2-pack or Squirrel Girl with her scooter, they were on clearance. I think there was a single gold ReAction Bumblebee action figure moved to the endcaps too. Most pegs in the aisle were empty, so I'm expecting they will be restocking a lot more in the days to come.

    On Monday night, the G.I. Joe pegs were full of Ghostbusters, but this morning, the G.I. Joe pegs were empty. I asked a patient redshirt to scan the Viper peg, and he scanned it and said they got some "a while back," but they are long gone and don't have any more in the back. As I expected, he said G.I. Joe collectors come in constantly to check for those.

    Gulf coast town center target near FGCU has 4 hot rods and 1 scourge. Is there a reason deluxes are missing or am I just always late to the party? Couldn’t find buzzworthy bee and spike so I decided to order him on the target app. I died a little paying $22 for a legends sized figure
