    Ah, thanks for the info. I always wondered why clearance items and even prices vary from store to store

    update to this:
    The initial issue: I found a figure in a wave that is hitting stores earlier than preorder dates, so I went to ask if the rest of the wave was in the back. As it turns out I was asking a store manager when doing so. The manager starts looking through her my device and suddenly just snatches the item out of my hand, tells me to wait and walks away in to the back room.

    Comes back and says “sorry I can’t sell that to you” and tries to walk away with no further explanation. I stop her and ask why and she explains its street dated (shows me their online store saying preorder) and she can’t sell it. I explain it’s not street dated, it’s just the site saying it’s not available until mid November since it’s still technically on “preorder”
    She shrugs, says sorry again and walks away

    I come back the next day and the whole wave is now out on the shelf. I snatch it up and immediately self check out with no issues.

    This is the fourth time in 2 months I have had this happen at a Target

    Any crosshairs sightings at the discount chains?

    I saw one flywheels last week, and springer/starscream.

    Minicons and weapons too, but not more than that one flywheels for dlxs.

    If anyone finds a $75 mpm Starscream around the city I'll pay a little more if you can pick it up. Have some stuff to trade if interested in going that direction too.

    Also, any recent Topspin or Blitzwing finds?

    FYI for anyone who pre-ordered the earthrise coneheads pack, Amazon just canceled my order after being delayed for like 2 months. Not sure who dropped the ball there.

    Amazon is never my first choice anymore. I’ve had them cancel just as much as they have delivered

    A bunch of targets are starting to carry Overload. HIP target, Rosemont, and Melrose Park all had him yesterday.

    Also found Siege Astrotrain at River Grove Ross for $18. Absolute steal.
