    Well my store has the full complement of action figures, and the toy transition is complete. No shelf space for alternators. Get the last Alts from Wally? Or Ebay perhaps?

    I wouldn't worry about it. What alts is Hasbro making right now? Are they actually shipping any? I suspect Targets may remove their space reserved for Alts until Hasbro actually starts shipping them again -- i.e. when Rumble and Ravage come out.

    Of course, that's baseless speculation on my part as well.

    In other news, I picked up a Ricochet on clearance at the Maplewood Target. The only released Alt I'm missing now is Rollbar. If anyone sees him on clearance give me a holler. Thanks!

    I bit the bullet and went to get one of these Jetfires. I hate shopping for shortpacked shit in the first quarter of the year. I have 60 days to find it at Target to return with this receipt. If not, cie la vie. Jetfire kicks ass and it was the last one there.

    Something I failed to mention last week, but thought you all might wanna know. The Southdale Target is the next one in line, it closed last week and will be converted into a Super Target to open in October.

    Kind of random -- I saw some TF busts/statues (Hot Rod, Optimus, and Iron Hide) at the Pawn America on Rice in St. Paul. I wasn't interested as they were ~$100 each.

    There one Classics Jetfire left at W 36th st Target in St louis Park, NOT KNOLLWOOD ONE. I hid it behind the LEGO's about mid shelf or so. I snagged the other one. I went to KNOLLWOOD target and they did not have any (Im only lookin for Jetfire). Is it bad to hide Toy's? I wouldve bought it for someone but Im kinda broke SORRY.

    Thats what I kinda figured! But, I thought hiding it might be nice gesture, but, it kinda takes away from the kid that was lookin for him too... so I was hoping not to be the "bad guy" lol!

    I'll go hunting tonight and see if it's on shelves or if Magnus/Skywarp are in the back. They were first sighted in the Chicago area today.

    I'm going to hit the White Bear & 94 Target after work, working out, and probably a trip to the grocery store as well. I'll have them run the DPCI, see if there are any hits in the cities, and report back.

    Hopefully dcpi (dpci whatever lol) search will lend a much better result as this time I dont believe it is an "Asoortment Pack" much like Jetfire was! Good Luck guys!
