    @Oreo Bot have you seen any new products at the BloNo Target recently? I’ve been checking there at least 3 times a week for the past 4 weeks and they haven’t seemed to get anything new at all Transformers wise.

    Did a little hunting after work to test a theory.

    Nothing at Plainfield Target of interest really.

    Joliet Target has a few SS Hotrods, Black Arachnia and Warpath but they’re on a back end cap by the girls toys. A few Kingdom Leader OPs and MP Bumblebees in a case like the video games are.

    Now Shorewood Target. SS Grimlocks in the main aisle!!!

    Pretty sad when these are easier to find than Joes

    After 2 weeks of straight upsets nice to score one of these. Man that Grimlock is nice but after several pre orders hitting last week setting me back over a g, I’ll catch up to him later. I think I need to go play lottery and maybe I can afford the Vipers.

    Woodridge Target and Lombard Target had nothing of note. Wheaton Target had 1 each of the Kingdom leaders and 1 Warpath, and a couple MPM Bumblebees.

    Someone on a Facebook group spotted 2 SS86 Grimlocks at Belleville IL Target. Of course I couldn't check until after I got off work and they're long gone now, but good to know that they've arrived in this area.

    The Oswego Walmart has the SS deluxes on pegs, all are accounted for(Jazz Kup & Blurr). Also for some reason there’s a Hot Rod and Scourge in the clearance aisle marked to $25.

    nothing else out of the ordinary at Target there or in Naperville.

    I believe there was at least 2 of each Kingdom deluxe at the Geneseo Walmart. They also had a SS86 Hot Rod hiding a little down the aisle, on the bottom shelf.

    Out this morning looking for the crazy Switch game Clearance at Wally. Saw almost a whole case of W1 Kingdom deluxes at Streator Wally.

    Ottawa Wally has the most Kingdom I seen at Walmart yet. Both leaders. Also had Hardheaded and Mindwipe retro Headmasters. First time I seen them in person. Packaging is awesome and really takes me back.

    Went to Lake Zurich Target yesterday. Literally only 2 Studio Series Scavengers, 2 Buzzworthy Car Shatters and 2 Buzzworthy WW2 Bees on shelves. The Highland Park Target, which I went to in a vain hope for Thrusts, had one Kingdom Prime, two SS Scavengers, 1 normal Car Shatter, 1 normal Jet Shatter, Arcee triplets, Siege Megs and Siege Thundercracker. Kind of sad that I went to a Walmart (like 5 days ago, but I forgot what I found there exactly. But it’s more of this stuff), a Target and a Target 35 minutes away, and all I see are Siege and studio series leftovers and one Kingdom Prime, but it is what it is.

    the nw burbs are very dry atm. all i was able to pickup this weekend was ss86 blurr at palatine wm.

    all the other spots in a short driving radius looked like they had been picked clean.

    Good job on Blurr! Yeah, it sucks, because I’m not going to be able to drive until next year and my mom isn’t a huge fan of driving around only to find nothing.
