    Champlin Target had ER Astrotrain and Prime this afternoon. I left them both, but it was a few hours ago.

    Seems like the many of the MN Targets are finally putting out ER Prime and Astrotrain. I saw one of each at East St Paul Target this afternoon. First time ever seeing ER leaders in the wild. I already have both so I didn't buy them.

    Has anybody else ordered from entertainment earth recently? I ordered on may 6th my package went out the 11th and now since the 15th (a week) its been sitting in a USPS location in greenwood IN. I’m a patient person and it will get here when it gets here, but I’m just wondering if anyone else is having any issues. I tried searching to see if that location was closed due to the pandemic but couldn’t find anything.

    I’ve had other orders take quite a while lately. I think the USPS is just really backlogged right now.

    My last BBTS order took forever to go from 'processing' to 'shipped' and when it shipped it didn't post a tracking number until the next day AFTER I got the package. XD


    Edina Target has a tone of s4 botbot blind packs if anyone's looking for them. They also had 1 SS roadbuster, ER Hoist and Cliffjumper, ER wave 1 micromasters, and like... 10 ER Smashdowns. I wonder who grabbed all the soundbarriers from there? I grabbed like... 2, but dang.

    Burnsville Target has ER Starscream, Hoist, Grapple, and Ironworks. There was 1 Cliffjumper, but I grabbed it. There are a couple Smashdowns if anyone still needs her.

    I was surprised you called smashdown 'her', but then I looked up the TFWiki article, and apparently Smashdown's been called 'him' and 'her' at different events. Hasbro's called him 'him' and the TCG people call her 'her', so does it change depending on the medium? Or the mode? XD

    Didn't PotP Cindersaur have the same thing happen? Technically she was intended to be a "he" but then one of the cards used "she" so Hasbro ran with it?

    Damn Greenwood. I've had two things sitting there for two weeks now. Was chugging along fine then died in Greenwood.

    Stopped by Vadnais Heights Target today. Couple surprising things: 1) They had S4 botbots in one of the boxes rather than on pegs. I haven't seen target do that since S1/S2, and even then it was rare. They should just put the blind-pack botbot singles up with all the other blind-pack stuff at the front of the store.

    The other surprising thing was they had gunpla, which... man it's been like 20 years since I've seen that. Hopefully more targets start getting gundam kits. Some of them were marked up a little, but most were decently priced.

    Other than that, ER Micromasters, and that's about it for 'newer' stuff.

    In the process of converting the collection room/office into a nursury, which means I've got to move four Billys worth of figures downstairs while also finding storage for a fifth.

    Here's the first to be relocated.

    (Why yes, my son *is* at his aunt's for the next three days while we get everything setup)

    Eagan Target had a lone Deluxe Cyberverse Grimlock, but it came home with me. No sign of Rodimus.

    Deluxe cyberverse grimlock is hands-down the best 1p grimlock ever for articulation. He's WAY better than he has any right to be.

    If you haven’t heard, probably best to steer clear of the Midway and Roseville area today. Massive unrest. Not here to debate it, just giving a heads-up.

    Vadnais Heights WalMart has a couple Netflix Megs and one Hotlink. I grabbed megs because I love the deco and the weaponizers that come with him. Probably the best Seige Megs deco. Almost grabbed Hotlink because that deco also looks phenominal, but where I already have the main 3 seekers, I ended up passing, so he's still there.
