    I happened to run across the Galvatron at the Brickyard without seeing your post, but thanks for leaving it.

    Target associate was unboxing Transformers…
    Grabbed a Rhinox, and left one. A few Infernos, Dinobots, Ultra Magnus’, core Starscreams and Megatrons.

    HIP Target had Ultra Magnus’ and Cyclonus’ as of 2:30pm local time.

    edit: it had the misassembled shoulders, not the fixed ones

    Any new Galvatron sightings? I can look tomorrow, but maybe that would be pointless at this time? Wave maybe has passed by?

    Anybody in or around the QC area, I have an extra Galvatron I'll sell you at cost. I do believe it is the low shoulder variety. I forgot to cancel my BBTS order and it ended up shipping practically the same time I was checking out with one from Target.

    I must have simultaneously the BEST and WORST luck alive. Like My Name is Earl.
    So I went to Disk Replay in Orland Park yesterday and someone sold their entire Earthrise collection and the staff gravely mispriced everything. And I found these two...

    Now. That Disk Replay in Orland Park also has Earthrise Skywarp and Thundercracker for $20 each.
    My bad luck?
    I came home to a dog with the runs, a ruined basement, and a caked dog butt.
    Could be worse, I could have been hit by a Mack truck.

    Two Targets in the Rockford area got the Galvatron wave in but there's only Ultra Magnus's left. This sucks. Maybe they only had the Beast Wars Megatrons instead of Galvatron because I just found two Beast Wars Megatrons and two Ultra magnuses at a nearby Walmart.

    Loads of Kingdom Ultra Magnus and Dinobot at Elston Target still, along with a single Inferno.

    One Huffer and two Airrazors at Addison Target.

    Ok, crazy question (because of the circumstances): does anyone have a spare broken Earthrise Sunstreaker, or a spare Sunstreaker wheel?
    See, when I'm drunk I have butter fingers and while transformed I turned to reach for something and yeeted him across the room.
    I permanently broke one wheel held in by a small dab of testors that's wearing out.

    If not I may try the Orland Park Disk Replay again, unless you guys took my advice (with those prices, wth not?) ;)  I forgot if they had Sunstreaker.

    First time posting as I just got into collecting WFC.
    Edwardsville, IL Target has 4 Ultra Magnus 2 Acrees, and 2 Rattraps.
    Glen Carbon, IL Walmart has 2 Ultra Magnus, 3 Galvatrons, 1 SS86 Grimlock, 1 Cyclonus and a few Netflix Sparkless and Cheetors, and 1 Deep Cover. Also 1 Retro Headmasters Mindwipe and 2 Headheads.
    They had the Army Drone but I was wanting to pick one up soooo not anymore.
