    Kendall Walmart has 1 vintage BW Op Primal and 2 vintage BW Cheetors.

    Pinecrest Target (Dadeland South) had 4 Commander Rodimuses (Rodimi?). I also saw 1 each of MOTU Origins Webstor, Stinkor and Green Goddess, for those looking.

    Found a single Waspinator & Shadow Panther at the Casselberry Target yesterday! Nothing else there, unfortunately.
    Anyone still seeing the Worlds Collide 4-pack on shelves in the Orlando area? I still can't find it, and can't get lucky with ordering it on Target's website either.

    Well, the Transformers gods smiled upon me today. Went to West Hillsborough Super Target for a chair and figured I'd check the TFs. Looked like same old, same old, but something caught the corner of my eye behind another (non-TF) box: GNAW! Also found an errant Jazz there too. All that's left is 10 million SS Thrusts that nobody wants and a couple of wave 2 deluxes.

    They've been shelfwarming in the daytona target and port orange. I mean, just take a trip if you're desperate. Orlando is always bare because so many of you all live there. Just go north and you'll find them no problem.

    I just saw three Worlds Collide 4-packs at Altamonte Springs Target this evening. I passed. Nothing in that set is worth the price tag to me -- I like the canary yellow color of Bee but wish it was still the VW mold not the Cliffjumper mold with Bee head. Slightly tempted by Fangry though, but not interested in Nemesis Ape or weird Blackarachnia toy homage.

    I briefly chatted with a guy who had managed to find Wreck Gar, Gnaw and Slag/Slug in Orlando in previous weeks. I'm still looking for those figures in case anyone has any tips or extras they want to sell or trade.

    Picked up Tracks and Scorponok this week -- they're pretty much everywhere now it seems. Tracks isn't quite as bad as other people have said IMO (and yes I have all the other versions... G1, Alternators, MP, Gen and Henkei). Not perfect, but in scale with current line and about on par with the otherwise disappointing MP in my opinion. (Just wish it had a 5mm port on bottom of flying car mode for a display stand.) Scorpy is kinda a letdown, since I have the original figure and I like it much better. The legs are just too darn short.

    Bizarre find at a Ross near Millenia. Picked him up since Starscream is one of my favorite characters and it was just $4.

    Ok, so here's where I'm stuck: How can Walmarts and Targets in the NW area be getting wave 3 Kingdom stuff, and new SS stuff (Wreck-gar and Thrust), but there's not a single Galvatron or Slag to be seen? Not even so much as a shelf label. According to Target, Galvatron was supposed to be out in August. Well, it's October now, and there's never been so much as a hint of his presence. It took quite a while to get Kingdom Ultra Magnus in-store here, but this guy has been taking longer. In fact, I haven't seen ANY Leaders since July or early August. So why are they getting everything except Leaders?

    I wish I had an answer, because haven't seen a leader in person in months, besides occasionally UM at gamestop or books a million. Distribution seems even worse this year than last year, but then again I havent been making as many trips to check, as I'm slowing down my collection.
