    From an out of state perspective, fixed vs unfixed appears to be luck of the draw so far.
    No set pattern or distribution.
    Here in PA first 2 I found in Target were fixed.
    Bought 1 and considered myself lucky.
    3 days later in different Target, I saw an unfixed version.
    Same distribution area, different results.
    Only constant has been the early BBTS releases.
    All unfixed so far.
    As summer progresses, fixed will probably become the norm.
    Hopefully.
    Good hunting.

    Interesting. I ordered the wave from EE and it will be here Thursday so I'll be curious what shoulders I get from there.

    If anyone in Jacksonville sees a NECA Homelander, please let me know. Haven't seen any yet at Walmart.

    That's good to hear. I POed on Amazon and it got bumped up to releasing early next month. Hopefully their stock is from a later run

    That's definitely unfortunate. If you're worried about disassembling him for the fix, WheeljackFan16 (his store) has just announced a new kit with fist covers and shoulder pin covers:

    He's gotten glowing reviews on his previous items, and his stuff is very affordable.

    Got Galvatron from Amazon. It's the bad shoulders. The fix was simple enough. Just don't use a flat head screw driver to do it. Unless you don't mind horribly mangling the plastic. Get an actual pry tool, I used a WAVE parts separator.

    My Central Florida Friends: I was doing some housekeeping this weekend and found some items that need to go to good homes rather than staying trapped in my storage bins. I’ll set up a bst if necessary, but I thought I’d bring it here first since we all look out for each other on sightings and I want to return the favor.

    I’d love to work out a trade rather than a purchase. I think there is a better chance of a win win since the eBay sold for prices are ridiculous. That said, my preferred trades are not Transformers, so if you don’t have what I’m looking for but really want something, let me know. Above all, I want this to be an opportunity for some fun. Either way, shoot me a PM. I’ll try to respond within the day - depends on work. Let’s make sure we don’t hijack the thread.

    What I have:
    Target Red Wing (in box, I think still sealed)
    Target Siege Rainmakers 3 pack. (Still sealed but the back corner of the box was beat up when I got it. I can send a picture upon request)
    Centurion Drone (I opened it upon receipt to make sure all parts were accounted for. They are all there.)

    I’m looking for Mezco Rumble Society figures, Mythic Legions and some of the hard to find Joes. Oh, and if happen to have Botcon Shattered Glass Thundercracker, he’s on my wish list for sure. Let the horse trading begin!

    Thanks everybody. I want you all to know that I appreciate the cooperative vibe of this thread.
