    About 6 Origin Bumblebees at Elston. They’re at $27 a pop.

    Also saw Elston had Rodimus and Ark tags but none of the figures to be seen. Asked if there were any more Rodimuses in the area but they said no after scanning—but your mileage may of course vary.

    I found the worlds collides set at moline target. They had them in the back and I saw the stickers for the other stuff but they were in the middle of restocking.

    Tinley target had the 4 pack today. I grabbed one. There were about 4 left.

    The buzzworthy crash combiners and the SS two packs were there too.

    I got the last origin bee.

    Thanks, I picked up a Worlds Collide set.

    I think I’m going to hold off on the SS VS packs for now. The only one I’m thinking about picking up is the AOE set if I find it.

    They also have the clunker bee & Barricade pack of anyone cares.

    Shiloh IL Target had 6 World Collide packs and 6 Origin Bees. I say "had" because they now have 5 Origin Bees. Woo.

    Great morning everyone. Snagged the last Worlds Collide from the back at the Brickyard Target.

    A little birdie told me they have 3 available at the Melrose Park Target. That location wasn’t answering their phones. You may have to ask an associate to grab it from the back with the DPCI#. Good luck!

    Just FYI, Melrose Target is undergoing a complete remodel. Toy section is pretty much next and they have not been stocking ANYTHING....

    If someone is interested in the Worlds Collides at Melrose Park and doesn’t want to waste time driving, you should call and be nice while you ask if they have one in the aisle or back and if they do, if they can hold it for you. DPCI#087-16-8265

    ———————

    I also have another tip for my Chicago peeps. You can order the T-Wrecks on the Target app with any credit card right now, but just at the Wood Dale Target, shows 4 left, but I put an order in for one and it still shows 4 in the system.

    Gonna pick it up later when I hopefully get the confirmation email for pick up. Glad I didn’t open up a Red Card for this. Good luck everyone!

    Why wouldn’t you open a red card or have one? You’re always saving 5% on purchases.

    Don't remind of the New Lenox Walmart. That place never has Transformers at all. I tend to find some of my stuff at the Target, but I have just been doing a lot of my pre-orders through BBTS even though they suck at times.

    I went to so many Targets today hunting for origin Bee, Ark, Rodimus Prime, and Dinobot Slag (it’s Slag, not Slug, not Slog…. Slag!), but Joliet, Plainfield (North and South), nor Oswego had any. They had a smattering of Buzzworthy stuff, and I think it was the Plainfield location on 127 that had T Wrecks out. I passed on T Wrecks cuz I have megatron and preordered the JP set… don’t really need a 3rd of that mold.

    On a separate note, I had yet to see a single next gen Game system, but today, the Oswego Walmart had TWO Xbox Series S consoles on the shelf, $299. I’m holding out for a Series X, and still haven’t seen a PS5 (either version, but I want the Disc version) except for the Display model at Best Buy (such a tease)!
