    man that place is either feast or famine and nothing in between. One of the only places I ever saw TLK Scorn and Nitro, but also often just bare shelves.

    Has anyone seen the rainmakers set or Micromaster 10 pack at a target? I doubt that the micro set is out but figured it doesn’t hurt to ask.

    Haven't seen them around yet, but it also sounds like they're street-dated for this coming Monday.

    The few that have trickled out were from more cooperative employees than I've bumped into.

    D89A0562-DFEB-4051-BD86-8C64D3800E0A.jpeg Anyone in the Cities interested in buying my almost new PS-01C Sphinx (aka Mirage). I just got it yesterday but it just doesn’t fit with my other figures so I thought I’d see if anyone on the board was looking to get it. It has only been transformed from car-to-robot once. I’m asking $80 for him and I am cool meeting you somewhere in the Cities (no shipping). Just send me a message if interested. Word.

    I've been hopping from Walmart to Walmart the past couple days in the north metro. Scored tons of Lego deals with the clearance going on, but not a single sighting of G1 Soundwave or the tape packs. Also was hoping to score another G1 OP to keep NISB now that they've finally come down in price, but no luck on those either.

    Shakopee Walmart had nothing new this morning.

    Edina Target is pretty well stocked - they just reset toys from the look of it so now TFs are on the opposite side of the aisle they were on before, and they had spark armor cyberverse guys. I picked up Jetfire, Prowl, and Skybite. There's another Skybite and Prowl left. Other than that, they had some Siege wave 3 deluxes and voyagers (Springer and Brunt at least) and a few Galaxy Primes. There was also a very excited and tiny child who seemed pretty pumped about Acid Storm. XD

    :EDIT: So the spark armor guys are pretty cool. $15 is a bit of a steep price point for what you get, and all the armor basically works the same way (sides come off and attach to arms, main vehicle body turns into helmet/chest armor, front of vehicle becomes weapon they can hold), but if you like Brute more stuff, they look cool, and honestly these guys all have elbows and knees which is more than most Cyberverse figures can say. The cool part about the armor all following the same format is that it's very mix-and-match and seems like it'll also work with all the Siege figures. Not to mention most of the weapons seem to have barrels that'll work with siege blast effects, which is kind of a cool extra little touch. It's good cross-compatibility, even if the look doesn't really mesh well. XD

    At over 200 miles round trip, I'd spend more on gas than I'd save on the figure unfortunately. Luckily I already have one so it is more just a "nice to have" than a "need" (if there is even such a thing with TF!). I'm debating on getting a KO off eBay anyway since it would be nice to have the trailer also and I can get the set for ~$35 there. Thanks for the heads up though! Don't suppose they have some G1 Starscreams sitting around still too? =)

    If you are talking about OP then nbd but thanks for the offer, since I did already get one. Now Starscream might be another matter since I missed out and haven't been able to find him.

    Rochester North Walmart has G1 Soundwave ($50) and a ton of Tapes ($20). I'm sure they'll trickle up to the metro soon.
