    The Meijer in Okemos is out of Transformers and also put everything on clearance (despite not having any product). I think they’re preparing for the RotB toys.

    For those of you who had the skullgrin, does one sword feel significantly softer than the other one? Cuz mine is like that. One is made of hard bendy plastic, the other is made of bendy plastic so soft that it's a bit tricky to even plug it into a 5-mm port. I suspect one is made of a different material because the soft one is also a bit sticky.

    I could definitely see that being the case or a big factor.

    For those who can't wait, ages 3 and up (canadian based) started posting Hotshot and Scraphook legacy evo wave 1 figures. Needlenose is marked as sold out and Breakdown is still on pre-order. Maybe that'll get updated soon.

    They're wave 2 of the walmart playmates figures. So they have the same original 80's packaging. Wave 2 is splinter,bebop,rocksteady,shredder,crang, and leatherhead.
