    Out of stock, though :( 

    For all that he looks like someone trying to cosplay Optimus Prime, I'm actually surprisingly fond of POTP Prime. He's satisfyingly stable in most modes!

    For those in need of a placeholder weapon for Grimlock: since my Classics Jetfire isn't currently on display, I gave Grimlock his double-barreled blaster. It actually fits pretty well and looks fairly G1-accurate.

    It can also split in half and "store" very awkwardly on his legs in dino mode.

    Eh, available in a couple days. Where I don't have prime (Amazon prime, not Optimus Prime... I have a few of those) I'm waiting until he shows up in stores. $6 doesn't seem worth it considering I've got this gut feeling wave 1 is gonna be everywhere in a week or two.

    ...Now I just need to stop spending money on Tamagotchis.

    Stopped in this morning at the Uptown urban-format Target store. Cool place but very limited toy selection! They have one movie Slash and some Turbo Changers.

    Oh, they also have the DreamWorks lions blue, red and yellow on clearance for $8.96 each.

    Savage said they had leaders and voyagers in stock but couldn't find anything other than movie figures when they looked in the back. =/

    Bville target, tru, and Walmart are all bust unless you need legends. That said, tru had a bunch out weird tags on the pegs, so it could be a reset is incoming?

    Not TF related but had anyone seen the classic Voltron black lion anywhere? I got all for limbs today between a few targets. All the targets I've been to seem to be holding the black lion for a street date of tomorrow.

    Northeast MPLS had one yesterday.

    In other news, St. Louis Park said they hadn't even ordered the POTP leaders. Knollwood told me they had two, but wouldn't pull them for me :(

    The larger ones or the smaller ones?

    The few 84 Lions at AV Target on Pilot are gone now. No sign of any PotP. The Titans stuff looks like it was marked down again. Legends at $5 and TMs at $2.50.

    Deluxes may be cheap if you can still find them.

    I am not familiar with the different variants. They looked like a large Deluxe class. They were normally $20 if that helps.

    I got one off the shelf at Target on 494/Penn on Wednesday morning. Totally random stop while dropping my daughter off at daycare.

    Found the limbs last week. The set is fantastic.

    Okay, cool, those are the "large" Lions. $8 is a pretty sweet price though I have no idea where I'd put a Voltron that big.

    Nothing at EP target. They said they had stuff on hand, but had no idea where it was, then said I should check Savage Target. I laughed, then wept. XD

    The anticipation is the worst part and I'm too stubborn to just order stuff OL at this point.

    IGH Target has 1X Seaspray and a couple Titan Masters for 70% off and a few of the Deluxes for 50% off. A 70% off Cosmos went home with me because I'm not an idiot.

    Oh, I forgot to post this along with my Lioconvoy/Shadow Panther stuff.

    Cedar Cliff has the two cases of Transformers and a bunch of boxed stuff along the wall, but then there's also what I'd call a shoe/card box of figures in bags on a table to the right just before the case when you come in the door.

    It's mostly pretty recent stuff. Lots of Generations, as well as some Titans (Topsin, no Twin Twist). There was also the TFCC/Funpub Runamuck and Runabout from the Wheeljack mold. I think there were a few others but that's what stuck out. Prices weren't that bad any any of it.
