    Nope, Bardstown. South of My Old Kentucky Home and a few minutes North of the Bluegrass Parkway.

    Hello All!

    On July 6, I found Earthrise Astrotrain at J-Mall Target in Louisville. Street dated, so they wouldn't sell. Pulled Primes and Astrotrains, or so I am told. Today, after work, went to Bashford Manor Target. They showed 4 Clone packs in stock on website. Searched endcaps. Nothing. Went to TF aisle. Nada. EXCEPT- 4 Astrotrains on the shelf. Got one. Asked a very nice staff member for help finding Clones. He went in back and got a nice, minty one! So Clones and Astrotrain to register. No street date warning! I walk with both.

    Onto the other Sightings (6pm ish):

    Bashford Manor Target- Shelfwarmer Shockwave was present... 3 Earthrise Astrotrains present after taking mine. 10 sets of Clones (according to inventory). 9 now. Cyberverse sets. No Scorponok or Sky Lynx; No Snapdragon or Doubledealer.
    Bashford Walmart- TONS of Earthrise Grapple and a lone Starscream. BAF newer wave Hot Rod, Grimlock... no Arcee, which is the only one I have any interest in.

    Thanks to Chaos Muffin- Hillview Walmart- $25 G1 Astrotrain on Monday!

    Galvatro, enjoying 2 Astrotrains and some Clones!

    A ponderous thought- why not pick the Autobot Clones as Target exclusives?? Red is in their color scheme. Maybe Decepticon Clones are a taste of things to come?

    The Autobot Clones will likely be a Target exclusive as well, possibly for the winter or next summer

    Thanks for the tip Galvatro, was able to score a set of clones from Bashford Target.

    They also have the new Cyberverse figs & a stack of GI Joe troopers

    All gone at Bashford from what I could see. No Joes, no 2pk no Slitherfangs.. Granted I was just there for the 2 pack just now and guy said they showed on shelves. No luck. Someone must have hid them..? He said they showed on a middle tower not in back.. oh well. Hunt continues

    *edit nothing at Walmart next door as far as Joe’s that I could see either.. or transformers worth mentioning

    Yeah scalpers cleaned out all the pre orders for those Target Exclusive Joes. If anyone sees them help a fellow collector out! Really don’t want to pay eBay prices. JSteez what 2 pack for u looking for?

    popfindr shows the Cobra Trooper and Beach Head popping up at multiple Target locations in the Cincy area...nothing yet for biker Baroness or Beardblock. But, it is my understanding that they are streetdated until 7/26 or so.

    Sorry not sure if it was clear, Looking for either the clones or the seekers(transformers).. not a pre-order collector, I like going out hunting personally, and not a completionist collector ..yet.. lol

    same with Joe’s.. I haven’t started collecting those, but thought if I saw in store, it may change my mind..

    same...I had Beachhead and Roadblock in my cart and disappeared before I could click check out...I really want to get that line a few Troopers...but not for 5x retail from lowlife POS scalpers. They are the reason lines end because the majority won't pay insane markup...surprised some of the Joe stuff sold already...people are idiots with their money.

    Yep, I've got all of the first wave but if I can't get beachhead, gung ho, Coco, baroness, and a few troopers for retail or close ive pretty much decided to sell off what i have and get out right now.

    Right there with you. I got wave 2 ordered but if i can't get trooper, baroness and beachhead kind of pointless. Heavy duty roadblock i can go either way. Ive been using clearanced out overwatch, articulated icon ninjas, and thinking of ml shang chi to add in what i got..
