    Found Dreadwind and Swoop at the DT Target on shelves. Now I'm in need of Slug and Jazz.

    I've got a spare Jazz if Eagan/Richfield isn't too far. Would probably have to wait till Saturday at the earliest.

    I may take you up on that if I don't find one in the next couple of days.

    Just scored the Walgreens Clones at the 26th and Hennepin store in Uptown Minneapolis. One set remaining as of 1 AM (it's a 24-HR store).

    They didn't seem to have a shelf tag; they were mixed in with the Marvel Legends. It's possible there were more in back. The shelves were pretty full, so they may have put out what they had room for.

    I just picked up the Clones at Walgreens, I have 2 extras if anyone in interested. They are $18.99+tax so roughly $21.

    Edit: Forgot to mentioned, must be willing to pick up in Woobury.

    I got the only set of clones at Bloomington's Walgreens at Penn and American, about two hours ago.

    Nothing at the Walgreens on White Bear and 94 over lunch. Grabbed the only set at the White Bear and Larpenteur store.

    Target appears to be doing 25% off all toys today. Not sure if it's one or *all* ... So if you hadn't landed a set of PotP Deluxes yet, congrats youy patience (or misfortune thus far) may have paid off.

    Also, I'm still looking for anyone who knows how to replace pins to help with my Godbomber.

    The Chosen Prime seems disinterested in sending anything close to a real resolution so I'm about ready to go back and contest the credit card charge for being sent a defective product.

    I just want my Godbomber to work so I can finally make the God Ginrai I bought Magnus Prime and sold PMOP for.

    If you don't care about the old defective section, I would say go the nuclear route and carefully break (or cut) the hinges on the defective front's blue bars. From there you'll be able to get the pins out of the back section's hinge with a tug and it will be easy enough to push them back through the new front bar's hinges.

    Edit- I should have looked at mine first and got the hinges reversed with the front ones, so disregard that.

    The POTP legends have apparently started appearing. DPCI is 087-06-5849 (Brickseek was a life-saver for finding the deluxes - good to know the good fortune continues!).

    Was just gonna say, I can't get there this weekend. But that DPCI is green at Midway Target. So...good luck to the first person there. Save a Slash for me?

    Hoping the Voyagers show up in back before Black Friday and not on the peg. As fun as BOGO50% would be.

    I was there today around 3pm and there were no PotP figures on the shelf. Well check again this morning.

    They're probably in back like the Deluxes waiting for the reset.

    Target looks like they're running their BOGO50% on toys *today* and carrying it through Black Friday. So perfect time to hunt for those PotP Deluxes before the coming madness.

    EDIT: Lake Street and Midway each appear to have Legends in the building somewhere.

    Blaine North 109th had no PotP yet, but there is a leader Dragonstorm if anyone is looking for him.

    Searched four Walgreens in the North Metro around where I live for the clones, but no dice.

    Ah, was there today and nothing on display. I'm not too worried or interested in wave one deluxes. Only one I want is Dreadwind and wave one is always completely over - saturated.

    Does anyone want a TR Seaspray? Free? Packaging is gone, have his card and instructions still, bought him yesterday, but not into him at all.
