    Hmmm unsure if I'm able to even stop by HIP to get Galaxy Prime by the time I get out, someone else might swipe it before me, rip. Hopefully one of my local targets stocks it, so far the North Broadway Target only restocked Leader Siege Ultra Magnus and Shockwave.

    Yeah it’s street dated. They won’t sell it until the end of July basically. For the Galaxy Force Prime at the HIP!

    That’s what showed up when the manager tried to override it for me. Apparently, it’s locked and can’t be sold until then. At least for Target that is. Walmart couldn’t give less of a shit. So if you want one, your best bet is there then.

    Damm, I was so excited for this figure, but after seeing more of it here and there, it doesn't interest me anymore. The alt mode cab is just weird, with the front wheels pushed way forward. The hands are funny too and the chest, too different from the original.

    I have the Cybertron and Galaxy Force versions of the original, that's plenty.

    Can someone kindly direct me to the nearest Yoink store? I hear they have an excellent selection of transformable figures.

    Hey what's up Illinois peeps!
    Just thought I'd stick my head in, and see how things are going...
    You have a nice community thread in here!
    Stay cool!

    It's all good!
    We're all on the same team here...no reason for anyone to get upset...sometimes things just get past a certain point, and we need to roll things back a bit.
    I'm from Minnesota, and we also have a VERY active sightings thread...in fact...I think the only other threads that have more active sightings threads than Illinois, and Minnesota are California and the UK!
    Look...there's a lot of us in these threads, and it's only a matter of time before some of us end up butting heads...it happens...we're all different, and honestly, I've learned that a lot of times, things like sarcasm are easily lost through text communication...what's important to remember though is that in our sightings threads, we're not just an assortment of collectors, we are also neighbors.
    I think you all should be proud of the collector community you share here, and not let words spoil it.
    I hate clichés like "agree to disagree" or "lets move on", so when I see stuff getting a little nutty in sightings threads, I like to come in, and remind everyone that it's ok to just be cool with one another.
    If there's a problem, report it, and we'll fix it on this end...but I don't think I can fix a broken bond between collectors that share the same stores, so I'd just assume try to avoid all that.

    I'm going to reiterate what ServO said here, "Stay cool!" The bickering needs to stop. NOW.

    Still no sign of the games and highly anticipated (by me at least) Galaxy Prime in the QC area. I think we may have actually gotten it in around here a bit before the Chicago area and I just missed it... I think this because I saw a lot of solo Shockwave's about a week ago.

    Driving up to Naperville tomorrow afternoon so maybe I'll be able to get a couple stores in my way and maybe I'll get lucky.

    I don’t know if this will be on you’re way or not, but I did see a GF Prime at Walmart in Normal on Veterans Parkway yesterday. I left it because I favored a Godzilla figure instead. It should still be there if you are interested. Hope that helped, and good luck :)
