    No, but I've seen the build-a-Zaku action figure series of Gundams at the East Colonial Target just yesterday, as well as the local Hobby Lobby. I found them to be pretty lackluster, especially when compared to the actual model kits.

    I gave up on finding the USA-type Entry Grade RX78 in-store so I ordered a bunch of them from Target.com.

    Waspinator is shipping from Pulse soon!

    ALSO if anyone is still hunting the Marvel Legends Happy Hogan/Midas armor 2-pack, there's one left at the Pinellas Park Target (as of a couple hours ago) marked down to about 15 bucks! I grabbed one set for me, one for another mod, but keep your eyes out in case other stores are doing the same. First time I saw the set in the wild too.

    If you absolutely can't find the current Studio Series deluxe wave for some reason, Big Lots is carrying them for $23 each.

    That said, Waterford Lakes Target has them for $19.99 (and 25% off one toy with the Cartwheel app).

    Orange City Target had slim pickings for the smaller toys but a decent selection for larger ones. Tons of Worlds Collide and T-Wrecks available to get with the 25% off one toy offer currently going on.

    I'm curious how Ormond Walmart keeps getting these Pulse Exclusive 3.75" Marvel Legends sets. This is probably the third time I've seen them and it's so random.

    If anyone still wants the Target exclusive Kingdom T-Wrecks, I ran across 2 of them this morning clearanced from $52.99 down to $26.49. The "25% off 1 toy" Target Circle offer stacked ontop of that, bringing it down to $19.87 before sales tax. If you're in Lee County and interested, ask and I'll disclose which Target the remaining one is at.

    If you're not in Lee, you might check your own local Target(s) to see if it's clearanced.

    (Also, whomever was at Target driving a new-ish grey Camaro with the Decepticon symbol by the front wheel arch and "to enslave and protect" on the rear quarter window... Nice. :cool: )

    At the East Colonial Target, an asshole returned GIJoe Striker + bike after swapping the figure for a kitbash of old Marvel Legends figures. I advised a worker and he said he'd take it off the floor but be on the lookout!
