    Is there anyone on this thread that has Hasbro pulse premium? I’m trying to get a copy of the Jason MMPR set and the CC exclusive transformers card set but don’t wanna pay $50 for premium (which gets early access.

    Argenta/IGH Target still had 2 sets of Rainmakers last night, along with the one 10 pack deal. They also had one Long Haul and a couple of whatever that initial plane guy is...STG Captain or some shit..not a character I remember. I think it said he's from that piece of crap TF4: Age of Stink.

    For anyone curious, BBTS is having a pretty deep sale.

    The big callout is Throne Primal for $80, which was his original SDCC price.

    TF Source is doing their customer appreciation week too. Ended up grabbing the FP Femdinos because I have the rest of that set and a bunch of source points lying around. $70 shipped for both brand new seems worth it enough, and now I can basically ignore everything FansProject does until they get off their asses and decide to start trying again.

    Additionally, my Dropkick/Hightower/ChopperDrift shipped and should be here Friday!

    Couldn't be shipped from tfsource since those figures haven't reached tfsource yet and bbts hasn't gotten deluxe wave 7 yet. Amazon won't get them till December. So u must have gotten them from Hasbro since Walmart.com doesn't release them til tomorrow

    Man, I'm so on the fence about Soundwave. I already have a G1, but it'd be cool to have one in box. I dunno if it'd be $50 cool tho.

    Yeah dude I got them from Pulse. Thanks for letting me know TFsource won't ship the figures I didn't order from them though, I was real worried for a sec. XD

    Also, fixed Starscream's face:
    upload_2019-8-14_18-12-33.png

    Face came with a complimentary Thundercracker. $30 seems a little steep for a face, but I like the character accuracy more than the previous face. 10/10, would face.
    I will say, Thundercracker in general feels like a better version of the mold. Aside from the improved chest plate, his nose splits apart easier and stuff FEELS like it fits a little better than Starscream. Ankle tilt works better too. Not sure if that's true of the Rainmakers and Red Wing, but I like it.

    Roseville Target had two of the car mode Dropkicks, and a KSI Boss. Brought home one of each. Man, the paintwork on KSI Boss is surprisingly good. Even if you don't like AOE, he's worth picking up so that you can stick a Titan master on him and use him as a classic jet character of some sort. The new Dropkick is wayyy better than the helicopter mode one. Much more solid, bulky, and the transformation is more satisfying than I thought it would be.

    Forgot to mention that IGH/Argenta Target had a pair of Rainmaker sets and a Micromaster Set yesterday. Not much else since KSI/Long Haul and Galaxy Prime have hit saturation.

    I went ahead and returned my extra Brunt and Reflector to the Eagan Target yesterday as there were no takers here.

    Nice find! I probs will assume the other Dropkick is gone at Roseville, but I'm definitely looking for him if anyone sees more!

    Eagan Walmart has a bunch of G1 cassettes if anyone is looking for them. No G1 Shockwaves though...

    Thanks! Grabbed one of each, still about 5 of each left as of about 4pm.

    Also, as of about 3:45, Richfield Target off Hwy 77 has one each of new Dropkick, Drift, and Hightower - after I left with the other Dropkick.

    Sorry I couldn't post sooner!

    Got my Hightower from Pulse this afternoon. He's a fun little dinosaur. So far the Deluxe Constructicons are a slight bit more entertaining than their Voyager counterparts.

    Which is no knock on the rest of the team.
