    If a specific Target shows say, 2 in stock, then later shows 8 to 10, there's a good chance it's W2. But yeah, other than that...

    It's like all of us collectors bought the wave up front, Target over-compensated, and now kids are only buying Grimlocks.

    Thanks for the leads and reassurance everybody.
    I found PotP Grimlock at the Chanhassen Target this morning so my search for him has officially ended.
    Oh, they also had 3 PotP Starscreams there too if anyone is looking.... Oh who am I kidding....

    There's actually an edit button just above and to the right of your profile picture that you can use to go back and fix typos like that. I use it a lot since I basically have at least 1 typo per post. XD

    Thank you!

    In another note... I've got an old Sega Genesis that's acting odd. I moved it up here from my parents' house, and it seems to work with my new TV... For precisely one game. Every other game I own, I get sound but no picture. I figure I need to take it somewhere that sells vintage games and try it/my games with an older TV of theirs, try their games with my console, etc. Anybody know a store around here that would be likely to put up with some testing shenanigans?

    Ended up finding Saberclaw (RiD crash combiner) at EP Target. They didn't have any more of him, but they had 2 Primelocks I passed up. 10% off, I figured what the heck. I'm happy just with saberhorn's bug mode and weird grinning bug face.

    Other than that, some wave 1 POTP at EP Target and Walmart (Grimlock at EP Target, if anyone still needs him). No Leaders, very few deluxes. Do people just hate Dreadwing?

    Also saw the Dark Crystal in theaters (they re-released it) tonight, so that was neat.

    Betwren Dreadwing and Starscream maybe jets aren't "in" anymore.

    I like Dreadwind and Darkwing! Buster and Hydra were cool in Masterforce too. I'm a little surprised Dreadwind is the pegwarmer, I thought it would be Jazz.

    I see plenty of Jazz as well (he's prolly number 2), but maybe it's just that Dreadwind is much more of a CW recycle and the non-collectors are like "Didn't we already get a grip of white jets?"

    Snagged a Battletrap pair from Eagan Target, no sign of the Bisk/Grimlock crash combiners. Since everything is available online I'm not too concerned about which Prime Cards I get with my figures...but I would like to get something besides Quintus someday.

    Someday. Keep an eye out for X9 and Transmutate for me. ;)

    This reminds me. There hasn't been a FrankieCon since...what? September? And haven't seen Jertallica on here in a long time...so I'm guessing those are done?

    So...maybe we should try and arrange a TFW meetup like there was before the Frankiecons happened somewhere coming up this Spring? I dunno.
