    I have extras of Thrust and Runabout along with others. I sell to board members for cost + a 20oz soda. Send me a list of what you are looking for and I will send you what I have.

    Elston Target this morning had loads of Dinobots and Infernos, easily five of each.

    Feel like those were pretty rare in Chicago proper, so go nuts, I say.

    As of yesterday...

    Elgin Meijer had 2 each of Kingdom BE Megs and Kingdom Ultra Magnus, a Scourge, and a few Hot Rods
    Rolling Meadows Meijer had about 4-5 Sky Lynx
    Grapples are starting to dwindle, if anyone cares...

    Algonquin Wal-Mart has started to carry wave 2 retro headmasters...I left with Highbrow and Weirdwolf, leaving Skullcruncher and 3 Hardheads...other Illinois Wal-Marts should hopefully start carrying them...

    Targets were primarily a wasteland, as I found hunting for that Keldor/Kronis 2 pack (a lot of those TMNT Frog and Triceratops NECA 2-packs and Huffers and Airrazors are becoming more common)

    Finally got lucky and scored a Kingdom Galvatron and Rhinox at the HIP Target. They only had one of each. Left behind 2x Kingdom Ultra Magnus.

    Good luck hunting.

    PS Also got lucky and scored a Star Wars Retro Cara Dune... man what a day.

    Just found a BUNCH of Rhinox at the Rosemont Target, plus one Galvatron and a few Cyclonus in case you have a post-work shopping trip in mind.

    Just saw four Leader Ultra Magnuses at the Elston Target here in Chicago, which means I probably missed out on four Galvatrons.

    Don’t be too worried, Ultra Magnus was first packed with Beast Megatron. Then the case was revised to keep Magnus, remove megs, and add Galvatron.
