    I grabbed one of those animated Bumblebees at the New Albany Target, and also of interest is a single ss86 Blaster, for anyone looking.

    I just took a closer look at mine and it has gaps on each side of the head as well...not quite to that extent, though. It seems like the head is probably glued together. I pried on the gap a little bit, and it doesn't seem to want to separate...didn't want to gouge it up either.

    I can't understand it. The opposite side is flush. The 2 others I bought for friends I checked and they are pretty flush. Just my copy had that gap.

    My guess is that there's some plastic flashing on the inside or maybe on the neck ball that's keeping it from closing all the way. The only way to know for sure is to pop it apart...unfortunately that's gonna cause more problems than it solves, lol. I guess you could fill the gaps with something (filler putty, maybe) and then repaint the head. That's probably more likely to cause other problems as well.

    What is with Hasbro and gluing heads together now? It just makes things a huge headache for everyone, because we send figures back instead of being able to repair them ourselves. Glue just causes more problems than it theoretically solves in these cases.

    Trio of Gamer Starscreams at Springhurst Target also. 30% off.

    Hit a lot of Walmarts today. Am I wrong or did the Toxitron figures finally go clearance here? Because... they're back to being full price...?


    Edit of misfortune: Springhurst Walmart has a shelf tag for Toxitron himself for $13.00. On the shelf... one Grimlock. I tried hard to get them to sell me Grimlock for $13.00 (the tag simply says "TRA Capsule," which arguably describes Grimlock as well), but they were just having none of it. Sadface.

    I believe it was Windblade, Magneous, Animated Bumblebee, and Rescue Bots Chase.

    The only place I've seen the full wave was at the New Albany Target, everywhere else it's been two or one or another here and there.

    Clarksville Walmart had another Thundertron and two Animated Primes.

    Oh, also, for anyone who hasn't gotten Tasmanian Kid yet, the New Albany Target had a whole peg full of him and Bouldercrash.

    Lol. Getting ready to see the new Godzilla and decided to explore the mall while waiting. GameStop was pretty barren. Decided to give FYE a look, hoping for some cheap anime. They had a lone SS ROTB Wheeljack, but that’s not the notable thing. No, the notable thing was that these chucklefucks were trying to peddle this thing for FORTY BUCKS.

    That store had gone so far downhill. I blame the smaller space.

    Across the river at New Albany IN Meijers they actually have like 3 or 4 legacy United Silverbolts left, shocked me to see anything that new there, the transformers area is kind of all over the place but also seen a couple Gamer Starscreams, a Trashmaster, and a bunch of SS airraiser that has been clogging the shelf’s there for months.
