    Good call, but they still have more. I grabbed a wreckgar and three sweeps, and they still have two more wreckgars and three more sweeps.

    Got the last SS86 Gnaw from the Kendall Target.
    Homestead Walmart has the same things as last time. They did have Retro joes: 4 Cobra Officers and 3 Stalkers.

    Wow, it was amazing to see a stocked store today! DeLand WM had the current wave of Kingdom Deluxes, a Sweep(!), reissue Megatrons and Rattraps (-1 I picked up), a bunch of current Cyberverse Deluxes (got the Cheetor even though I don’t collect Cyberverse) and a lot of RED figures.

    Anyone still seeing Worlds Collide sets? Never found any up here.

    I'd like to buy it if anyone is willing to ship it or happens to be within moderate driving distance from Pensacola. :cool:

    I don’t think we ever got any down here in the southwest Florida area either.
    I never saw them and I work all over the three counties and I don’t recall anybody spotting them here.
    The only reason I was even able to get one is because they send me every once in a while to work in West Palm Beach.
    I saw them multiple times over a few months over there. They were almost shelf warming.
    Just goes to show how messed up distribution can be.

    In the Orlando area most Targets never even got a case. The only reason I was able to get one was by stalking the Target website for awhile looking for which stores got them in stock. In all I only saw two stores ever have them in stock on there though, so even that method did not show every case that came in. Hopefully the window did not pass for you, but I fear it might have.

    Just to clarify, I meant that when looking online you can check to see what stores have stock. I only ever saw two stores in the area have them labeled in stock on there: Winter Garden and Altamonte. That definitely doesn't mean that other stores in the area did not get them, but at least they didn't let the site know they were in stock. I can confirm that the website can somewhat be trusted because I dragged my girlfriend through Gotha back roads to get to Winter Garden one evening to nab the last remaining 4 pack on the shelf.

    Anecdotally, I live right down the road from the Millenia Target. That store never got the pack in stock. On their little PDA it showed that the case was supposed to come in, but it never did according to folks that work there. The shelf tag stayed there for awhile until they took it down to replace it with those Optimus and Megatron statues. Likely just poor distribution.

    Has anyone seen the new Gundam Battlogue kits in the Orlando area? No dice at Sodo, East Colonial or Millenia.

    I saw one at the Kendall Target in Miami last week, so don’t give up.

    The Kendall Walmart is following suit and restocked with wave 1 SS86 Deluxes and the Kingdom deluxe wave with Scorponok. No Tracks. One single retro Optimus Primal and about 4 Cheetors. I counted 5 SS Sideswipes.

    I can confirm that macys at Clearwater countryside mall was studio series. Gnaw and wreckgar both present.

    oldsmar target has shadow panther on the pegs. Had to ask an employee for waspinator. Someone’s relative was looking at the same time so employee came back with 2. Not sure if any left. Hi if you’re a member!

    I popped into the Macy's in Millenia Mall. Wreck Gar and Thrust is all they had for Transformers. Tons of G.I. Joe stuff and some Marvel Legends as well. But there was more space for toys left open so more cases of stuff might come in.

    I'll keep my eyes open for you. Hadn't realized that they hit shelves already.

    I've seen them multiple times at different Targets here in Miami. They come in and sell out right away.
