    Picked up a PotP Jazz at the Walgreens in Riverdale/Coon Rapids for $1.69. They had two Sinnertwins left if anyone is army building.

    They were on the seasonal aisle in a clearance section.

    Nada at Bloomington Target and Walmart.

    Got my Gurafi and Noizu set from Pulse.... does anyone know how to do his combined form without his top half just flopping over all the time? XD

    Are people still looking for it? They have one at Bloomington too, I just didn't think anyone was hunting it. It does look a lot better in person, but like... not $80 worth of good, especially where I already have that mold 3 times. >>

    Ugh. Street date BS again. Tried to buy Thundercracker at the Target in Roseville. Street dated until October 6th. They wouldn't let me buy the Stealth Suit Spider-Man Marvel Legends figure, either. Seriously pissed at Hasbro and Target, both for having the street dates and for putting products out when they're not even allowed to sell them.

    Hey guys, Harold from Now & Then here. I'm going to be at Fallcon 2019 this Saturday, Oct. 5 at the MN State Fair Grounds Education Building.

    We are bringing hundreds of Transformers from all generations along with Thousands of TF PARTS. We will be buying as well as trading if anyone wants to trim their collections down a bit.

    If we get enough people there, we can turn the afternoon in to a meet and greet of local fans and collectors.

    So if you have this Saturday off and you wanna hang around with a bunch of Toy, Game and Comic geeks, then come on down to Fallcon. I hope to see you all there.

    I was at Target this morning and tried to purchase Springer but he is street dated for 10/6? I thought he has been out for a while?

    Yeah, I went to Andover Target, saw both Thundercrackers were still there and then went to buy one...and we're back to this street dated BS at Target. So I couldn't buy the guy.

    Seriously. Walmart has had him as well as Hot Comics with no issues. Why is this a thing now with Target/Hasbro?

    Ever since they started redoing their stores/system this has been happening. And it's because the figures involved all come in cases with repacks who aren't dated.

    Huh. Richfield had 2 Thundercrackers. I didn't try to buy them since I already got mine a while back, but they scanned okay in the store scanners as far as prices were concerned (and wasn't that a problem when we ran into it before?) They did also say there were 0 in stock at the store tho, so that was weird.

    They didn't have the security bands, but I didn't look much closer. What I saw counting them seemed pretty good.
