    If you HAPPEN to see another Beach Head, a Trooper or Baroness and want to grab them, I'd be eternally grateful! =)

    I stopped at 2 Targets on the way to work, both had 3 Roadblocks. Scalper pricing on these is hard to swallow....

    I forgot to mention I found the only Blitzwing at the BloNo Target yesterday :(  my bad. And really they have 2 Overloads? If you do find them out on the shelves and you’re able to buy one, mind saving one for me?

    Big restock at the Addison Mall Target in Chicago - I left behind one Blitzwing, two Skipjacks, two Satellite Soundwaves, and one Topspin. Didn't see any Cliffjumpers but maybe they're backstocked. They had an empty peg setup for Leadfoot, didn't see any of him. Also have plenty of the Racecar/Space Shuttle Micromaster sets. No Overloads unfortunately.

    It was still there this morning, so I grabbed it since they didn’t have Skipjack or Cobra Troopers. There were two MPM Starscreams there too.

    Thanks, I was finally able to pick up a Leadfoot from a friend that lives out that way. Picked up yesterday the newest Studio Series deluxes at Target at Touhy and voyagers at Target on Peterson.

    yep.
    Sanding down the tab helps somewhat, but the hole in the pods is the wrong shape regardless.

    Plenty of Leadfoots at Addison Mall Target in Chicago this morning. Also two or three GIJoe Beachheads.
