    Thanks! Took a couple attempts as it's a heavy one.

    No. Resin printers print upside down, as a result supports are required where there is a lot of weight, as well as to prevent warping of the lines.

    Preferably 300-ish or less... :/ I'm hoping for new versions or reissues at this point. Turning to China for the 3 insecticons I want. Almost done...

    Anyways, haven't seen anything special around here, Toledo, OH Targets didn't have more than the standard pegwarmers.

    I know SLA print upside down. I was wondering why you wouldn't put the sword flat on the surface, is that due to the vat size?

    Putting it flat would not support the weight, also more likely to warp and fall off the plate or fail entirely if flat.

    Nothing at south and west side Meijer and Targets as of yesterday. I saw arcee and bone guy at west side Walmart a couple of weeks ago but missed huffer and airazor. Today there were absolutely zero TFs on the shelf there.

    I stopped at 2 Walmarts earlier in the week looking for Netflix Cheetor and one of them didn't even have a single Transformer, while the other only had RED's and Retro Hardheads, so that was a bust. I was also pretty ticked off that I saw 2 people not wearing masks, so I'm done visiting Wal-mart until things shift for the better.

    I got my first vaccination yesterday at Meijer and they had the buy 1, get 1 half off sale, so I ended up buying Cheetor and Cyberverse Rack N Ruin. (Also picked up my prescriptions and few other things, so it was a productive stop) I was fine, but now that it's been a few hours, I feel like I've been punched in the arm, hard.

    I got my first dose Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night into midday Wednesday it felt like someone was constantly pushing their finger into my arm REALLY hard. Stopped bothering me by Wednesday afternoon. Good on you getting vaccinated!

    I had horrible arm pain for 2-3 days after my first dose... couldn't sleep the first night.

    Monroe has an epidemic of people not wearing masks, and cases are shooting up... I'm done with stores for now.

    Since we're sharing vaccine stories I'll share my experience really quick.

    I got my first shot of the Pfizer on 3/8/21 and my arm was stiff and a little sore for about a day. Just drank lots of water and moved my arm around a lot to loose up the muscles. No symptoms other than that.

    Just got my second shot this past Monday (3/29/21) and this time the soreness and stiffness in my arm was a bit worse.

    If the first shot was around a 4, the second shot was about a 6 in terms of soreness. Also, my other symptoms were a slight headache and an overall sense of light headedness/feeling foggy for about 2 days.

    As of today I feel back to normal and feeling very grateful for the brilliant minds who helped roll out this vaccine as quickly as they did.

    Obviously everyone's experiences with the vaccine are different but I know hearing other people's stories help influence other people to get their shot too so I hope my journey can help encourage others.

    Stay safe everyone!

    I just got my first injection this past Saturday, I am scheduled for the second on April 17th. I was a little bit sore for about two days but not enough to disrupt any activity. I hope that my second shot goes as easily. Even if I do feel a little off for a day or two after I think it is totally worth it for the increased immunity.

    The Meijer at Tel 12 Mall has a few Sky Lynx and Cyberverse figures left on the shelves if someone wants to take advantage of the BOGO deal.

    Target on Coolidge has SS Blurr, Jazz and Grimlock, as well as Kingdom Dionobot. Meijer on the same road had SS Jazz and Grimmy.
