    Grand Ledge and Charlotte Meijers have nothing new. Charlotte Walmart has Plenty of new RED figures, plus several Dinobots/Infernos.

    Belleville Walmart had one Netflix Optimus. The Meijer down the street had Huffer, Arcee, and Airrazor. The Michigan Ave Canton Walmart was a barren wasteland.

    Still trying to track down Netflix Soundwave, Ultra Magnus, and Cyclonus.

    Just picked up huffer and airazor from south Lansing Target. Only 2 ractonites left on the shelf there, but according to their little handheld devices, there are 7 figures from that assortment in Okemos.

    No sweat. Guy unpacked him in front of my eyes at South Lansing Target. Also two cases of ss 86 hotrod/bb blitzwing.

    Now confession time...

    I was so geeked about finding Cyclonus, I was on the highway heading for Mason before I realized I didn't pay for it! :jawdropper: :banghead: 
    So next Voyager I buy I'll scan twice. :lol 

    I swear it was muscle memory from all the disappointing trips there.

    Sorry for the late response. They also had a bunch of wheeljack, several grapple/starscream and a very beaten up astrotrain. You might try your luck there as the box condition is really really bad on that astrotrain if you are planing to grab one.

    Does that Target not have security scanners by the doors?? How did you manage to get him out the door without anything beeping at you? :lol

    Transformers... at least not any I have bought, don't have the magnetic security things in the package/on the package anywhere. :p  Easy to walk out with one... I haven't done that... but I can't fault someone for doing it, screw capitalism!

    Edit for typo and adding -

    Even my Scorponok had no security junk in the box/on the box, and no spider-wrapping either.

    Huh. Fascinating. Well with this news I expect everyone here to be on their best behavior and not abuse this apparent fault in security at stores :p 

    Seriously though no worries on walking off with the toy. It's an honest mistake and you have every intention of fixing the problem when you buy another Voyager. :D

    Throne of toys has a lot of wave 2 deluxe (I believe the complete lineup) as well as the kingdom megatron, primal, dinobots and leader optimus, titan class omega and commander class sky lynx and jetfire. And I picked up a new titans return trypticon from warp9 for only 170. Really lucked out today

    Got my first vaccine dose earlier today. Went smoothly, but now my arm feels kinda sore. I also feel more groggy than usual. Not a big deal at all. It will probably be worse tomorrow, but some mild pain is infinitely better than getting COVID.

    Got my vaccine yesterday, it was the single shot Johnson and Johnson one. No pain anywhere but I've felt achey and tired for about 36 hours now.
