    I ran into a lot of nice people at check outs during that time, and none of them were able to do anything...even those who tried.

    The one time I ran into street dating with TFs, I got the guy to help. I think that was partly because I was trying to use a coupon that was about to expire but... at least it doesn't seem to be happening with ER?

    Speaking of ER: NO ER AT RICHFIELD TARGET. Man, I should just buckle and get him OL.
    They did have a lot of S4 botbot 8 packs and S5 botbot 5 packs tho.

    No Earthrise at downtown Minneapolis Target this morning. No shot at a BOGO50 for any Earthrise this week, I guess! Hopefully they get all those Siege Megatrons and Shockwave sold at least!

    That would be nice, DT is my go to Target too and I'm tired of seeing the same thing there every time. I'm still surprised they had a random Singe there last week.

    Nothing at either AV location, Eagan, or Argenta. Targets around here getting stingy.

    Downtown Minneapolis Target has three of the Earthrise Hot Rod Micromaster patrols on the pegs, none of the Military patrols. They're probably in the back because the pegs were full back to the rubber stoppers and I thought Micromasters came 8 to a case.

    SS Bike girls, Hot Rod, Mixmaster, Movie 1 Megs, and Bot Bot S5 5-packs at EP Target. No Earthrise.

    Also was someone looking for Ravage/Laserbeak lately? Because they had that too.

    Weird query of the day; does anyone know what size screws are used on most modern Transformers toys? I know they varied a lot on G1. I specifically need to butcher my Siege Megatron.

    May too late to ask. I just decided to collect most Siege figures in few weeks but Ironhide seems impossible to find. Does anyone see him somewhere recently or have an extra one for trade? Thank you!

    Edina Target had two Grapples, and when I asked if they had a Starscream in the back, they found one for me. They had six more voyagers in the back. He was $10 off, too. I like him a lot. I think he's going to be my default Starscream to carry around along with Earthrise Optimus.

    Wow! Would people mind saying if they grab one of the Grappels? I want him but Edina is pretty far from where I live so it would really help.

    Eagan Walmart has a SS Shockwave as well as Mixy/07 Megatron and SS Arcee waves.

    (EDIT: Anybody want to help me convert this dude into a CW Grapple?)

    Weird question - anybody know a local source to find an assortment of m2 screws? The tiny ones used for transformers. I can't find them in any of the usual places - Menards, Home Depot, hobby hut, etc.

    Downtown Target put out the rest of the Micromasters - at least three of Growl and Tanky McTankface as of 9:30.
    I got mine from Amazon a couple weeks ago so I did not buy one. Nothing else of note.

    Hey, wanted to see if you're still looking for these. The BOGO ends tomorrow, but I have seen these all in the past 24-48 hours and could grab them up if you're not too far from Eagan/Apple Valley area to do a pick-up. (I also frequently swing by Hot Comics in Richfield though I'm not sure how conducive that area is to a hand-off.

    Also want to re-up this:
    I don't know what a commission would cost...but I'm willing to work with people who have the gear because I have some ideas on how I'd turn a fire truck into a crane.
