    Oof. Goodluck. He has been sold out for a month, best bet is to get notified if anymore pop up online. Last one I saw in store was an outta the way less traversed target aka Titusville but that was January and he is gone by now.

    Yeah, I know I'm really late to the party. I knew I wanted him when he was revealed but didn't realize he was a Target exclusive until recently. This was a shot in the dark. :p

    Give it time. Last few target exclusives prior to thrust and runabout hit other online only retailers like entertainment Earth, BBTS, etc, but it was months (6+) later

    Looks like I missed out on the NECA Defenders of the Earth -- I stopped by three Walmarts in the past three days and they are all gone. ebay prices are as expected.

    The Walmart at 3838 S Semoran Blvd did have a good number of Netflix Elita-1s and Wheeljacks. There was x1 Earthrise Soundwave and x2 of each of the "retro" Headmasters.

    East Colonial Target has a full set of the Tri-Sentinel wave of Marvel Legends.

    East Colonial Target: x2 Grimlock, x2 Jazz, x1 Paleotrex, x1 Warpath, x2 Blurr

    I gave up on Walmart (none are really anywhere near me) for the Defenders of the Earth when Dorkside put them up for preorder. Huzzah for Dorksidetoys! If you guys haven't used them, I highly recommend it. Just yesterday, I received what should've been an order of MODOK from them. Instead, I got a box full of Star Wars Black figures for some guy in Canada. I got ahold of them and they are handling it immediately. Great company to work with.
