    Still there. Actually now TWO Nightbirds and three MPM Bonecrushers (and still two battle master Airazors). I’m wondering if folks just expect the Touhy Target to be thoroughly scoured at this point and so have stopped checking as often.

    My aunt called, and say they dont have her, so I wonder if its a matter of Target employees not being aware of what they have, or they need the DPCIs to track them

    Knowing Target, probably both. FWIW, Amazon has SS105 Mirage in stock (though he's being sold above MSRP even though he's listed as being sold and shipped by Amazon) and Pulse has SS104 Nightbird in stock, so you can get both right now if you don't want to run all over Chicagoland.

    Nightbird (and one Airazor battle master) are also at the Schaumburg Target on Higgins.

    Thanks man!!! :D  You really saved Christmas for me (as in: not paying up scalper prices for both of them, especially given how they're not good figures overall).

    For full context: I originally preordered these two on Amazon, but due to outside events (that's life), I had to cancel them as I was left without cash.
    And since one of my aunts is coming down to visit for Christmas, I thought of asking her to get them for me, and given that she lives in Illinois, I came to this thread to ask in which stores they were located in lol. Thanks man

    Has anyone seen a red cog or shadowstrip lately at Ross? I’ve found everything else fell but those two

    Noting just because I haven’t seen them at Ross before, the Rosemont Ross has two each of the RED Megatron and Soundwave. Also, I counted no fewer than 16 of the Walmart exclusive Nightprowler, Buzzsaw, and Sandstorms.
