    Really? I just saw the new more traditional blister card versions when I was there on Monday. X-wing Luke, IG-88, etc.

    That’s a new line, that is the only reason They’re easily available. That’s what they need to do this year. Sell a new line of Black series products so all the old product gets clearenced out and new stuff can come in. Because right now I can honestly say that I’ve never seen most of the Black series waves at retail.

    I have been checking everywhere I go in search of the Black Series Rebel Fleet Trooper and have not been successful. I opted to just order online and should have him Friday. Hopefully with the Archive series showing up at Target and Meijer things will get a shake-up. SW Black Series has been harder for me to collect than anything Transformers related for the last year. Hasbro seems to have gotten case assortments down for Power of the Primes. The Solo movie figures building up on top of the piles of Rogue One stuff has not helped. The few really desireable figures get picked up, and the rest rots. I don't know if the recent influx of Rogue One figures at Target is an issue of folks returing FiveBelow stock or not, but I thought that stuff had filtered out of Target mid-way last year.

    If anyone is still in need of a Titans Return Overlord, there are 2 at the Canton TJ Maxx on Ford Rd.

    And as noted elsewhere, just $12.99 each. A Leader Class toy for less than a price of a DX. Crazy good deal.

    Almost assuredly. Has there been a line that didn’t double (or triple, quadruple, etc.) on Datsuns, Cherry Vanettes, Hi-Luxes (Hi-Luxi?), seeker molds, etc.? I’d be willing to bet will get repaints at some point

    From what I understand, it's not just a repaint. It's slightly bigger, and has new parts and tfmation tonwork with jetfire.

    Target off of Gratiot had 1 Siege Optimus Prime, 2 Siege Cogs, 2 Siege Sideswipe, 1 Siege Hound, 3 SS Dropkicks, 2 SS Leader Blackouts, and 1 SS Grimlock. Also 2 Bumblebee movie exclusive POTP Soundwave. They also had a handful of blind pack bot bots which I should have looked through but was too focused on trying to find Studio Series Sideswipe. Ah well.

    The Canton Walmart on Michigan Ave has them. I wasn’t sure if they were new or a year old. Now I know.
