    Well, I know several Targets that haven't got in the clone packs yet. Nothing new for Mega Construx either.

    According to Target's site and Brickseek, the closest Clones packs are in California.

    Sounds about right. I was there mostly for the Mega stuff that's supposedly showing up now but the clones would have been, "well, since they are available..." purchase.

    I did see Skipjack and Mixmaster at JTown WalMart. Pretty sure it was Skipjack, it was yellow. Definitely was Mixmaster. There were three SS figures, some guy, a Mixmaster and the yellow one I am pretty sure was Skipjack in the back.

    Hmmm.. I don’t think skipjack has been released yet.. also where is Walmart in Jtown!? Is it a full Walmart or just one of those Neighborhood Walmart’s? I didn’t know they sold toys at those even.. I’ll have to start checking at some around if that’s the case..

    It is literally in the same lot the old one was before it was closed, turned into a strip mall church, bulldozed down and rebuilt a WalMart.
    But I misspoke, that wasn't "JTown" but rather the Jefferson area of Louisville where the Jefferson Mall is.

    Too much Jefferson in that area.

    There is a Neighborhood store in JTown though.

    He probably meant Scrapper. He's out now and in a wave with Mixmaster.

    I did a little hunting today...wound up empty-handed, but, I did see a couple things that may interest others.

    Alexandria WM: At least one of each retro Ghostbuster figure. No G.I.Joe. G1 Astrotrain still warming shelves at full price. No NECA Casey.

    Ft. Wright WM: No NECA Casey. No Joes. Nothing notable TF-wise.

    Cold Spring Meijer: Big red Studio Series Devastator excavator guy.

    Newport Target: Sentinel Prime.

    Hello All-

    Target JMall in Louisville has Earthrise Prime and Astrotrain... and won’t let me buy either! I tried Prime after Astrotrain failure at register. Release date - 09/01/20. Was told they would be pulled. Eesh...

    Galvatro, leaving disappointed.

    looked today because only one I couldnt secure a preorder from pulse was Destro...nothing in Lexington. Not even a spot. Target are clearancing a lot of lines so they may be making room.

    Thanks man. Several Walmarts in the Cincy area show “limited stock” on Brickseek. I know I could have preordered them, but, I wanted to see what I was getting first-hand before buying.

    I ordered the exclusive Snake Eyes and convinced myself I would only get him and a Storm Shadow but after getting them I remembered how I passed on the SW Black wave 1 and early hasbro marvel legends like Ares and Red Hulk even though I saw complete sets all the time at walmart toys r us and target. So once I got the Snake I decided to get the rest and the regular Snake for the all Black...but by then Destro was sold out...:-( I could still get from EE but I despise them lately. And I refuse ebay scalper pricing. But I did use ebay to acquire a Marvel Legends WW2 Cap Motorcycle and Black Widow Motorcycle...they work great as Joe vehicles...so I felt like Destro or CC when he comes out needs something...found McFarlane toys Bat-raptor...looked exactly like a MARS vehicle Destro would use or sell to Cobra...lol now all I need is Destro..and a Jumanji ultimate collection WOLF to use as Timber.

    Classifieds are at Wal-Mart in Lexington. At least one of each at Nicholasville Rd and New Circle stores. My comic book shop has me hooked up with the complete set, so these are fair game for everybody else. Come and get them. They're on the endcaps. In hand images attached for those interested.
    On some other notes, Reynolds Rd Target has the shelf space cleared for the seekers and clones, and it's a bit late in the game, but I'm double dipping on the SS constructions. One set for combining, one set for individual bot modes. If anyone knows where I can find Long Haul and Scrapmetal for a fair price, let me know.

    Oh man I’m hunting SS constructicons too currently.. they had a long haul for $45 after shipping from amazon.uk Was cheapest I’ve found so far.. didn’t snap on it now unavailable and hitting myself lol.

    is it me or does the Gap in Duke’s left elbow seem strange? Same but not as much on Destro’s right elbow..?

    Preston walmart has GI joe classified on the floor near the bikes. The display is laying on its back.
    (spotted a hidden Snake Eyes behind the G1 Astrotrains)

    Walmart across from jmall also had some.
    Mostly Dukes, Roadblocks & Scarlets.
