    Got my Ratchet today at one of the two Walgreen's in St. Clair Shores. It was the only one they had, but this Walgreen's (14 and Harper) is way better about getting toys in stock than the one at 12 and Harper, so if you're in the area hit that one up first.

    No sign of the 35th Anniversary display at Roseville Walmart, but it looks like they have a space for it, and they were the only Walmart I saw with the big cardboard Bumblebee display that held all the Minibot reissues so we might be in luck. They did have one Soundwave reissue left, it was the first time I'd seen one in person.

    The Eastwood Walmart has Bluestreak available for store pickup on their website. Not sure if they’re on the shelf in the store or not. I placed my order and it went through to be picked up tomorrow.

    Order Bluestreak online to pick up at Flint Walmart. They delayed the order then cancelled it and now brickseek has zero on hand, yet brickseek still shows a bunch of 35th Primes on hand. I’m guessing the order fillers were looking for a regular box vs an end cap display. Now they messed up their inventory since they zero’d out the quantity for blue streak! And now my $$$ sits locked up in a pending charge vs being returned immediately. I wonder how many days that will take! Oy!

    Today left one siege ratchet at Walgreens in hartland off 23. Also saw 2 clone commander obi wans. Even saw a Titans returns highbrow behind the other TFs. Before that checked & found nothing at the Grand Blanc, flint-dort & Atherton and sliver lake Rd, Fenton Walgreens. Also no siege bluestreaks in flint, grand Blanc, or Fenton Walmarts.

    Thanks so much!

    BTW, I messaged all the locals (I think) where I found Ratchet in the Warren area, if anyone else wants to know where I found him, LMK. Just trying to keep the scalpers at bay and the friends in the loop. PM and I'll gladly share where I struck out and where I found him. I was going to add that before, but I was on a tablet and had little time on the weekend. (I just got home a while ago)

    At this point, the only TF I don't have or have on pre-order that I'm interested in through March that we know of is Rung.

    Same - it's really weird to me Rong isn't available for pre-order anywhere when we can preorder the first wave of Earthrise, and I have Crosshairs and Spinister waiting for me at the end of the year. Makes me a little anxious about how hard he's gonna be to find, but I'm gonna get my little buddy, uh, Ring or whatever his name is, dammit!

    There might be one Ratchet left at the Walgreens on 13 and Ryan. There were two when I went on Friday but I got one for myself.

    did my work at church today and then decided to do some robot hunting...i had a good feeling either Bluestreak or Ratchet were coming home today. And I was right! Found the 35th anniversary display at walmart on state in saginaw and brought Bluestreak home with me :)  Now just need to find Ratchet in the Saginaw/Bay City/Midland area

    Target no, but I did see Springer in the wild for the first time at Walmart at 14 and Van Dyke. Bottom shelf on the endcap by the Lego (back of the store, not front endcap). Thundercracker too.
