    Last night was Lake Street, today was Midway. All Target and CVS stores now closing as a precaution.

    “All” as in all Twin Cities locations, at least for the rest of today. Info is scant. I drove by SLP Target at 6pm and they were turning people away. Lunds in SLP closed at 7pm. How violent tonight gets will determine when things reopen.

    List of Target stores closed “until further notice”. May need to copy paste url.

    Wait...they closed both AVs but not Eagan?

    What, do they think rioters won't bother taking the extra two blocks east from Cedar on Cliff but will somehow find their way to Pilot Knob?

    This Target has already been struggling to keep up with demand during the current crisis, now they're going to expect it to carry the weight of 3-4 surrounding Supers?

    Would have made more sense to shut ours down and leave either Cedar or Pilot Knob's open.

    Looks good! You gonna pull out the shelf between Poseidon and Gen. Piranacon so you can put 'em on the same shelf in combined mode?

    Unfortunately the shelf Poseidon is on is part of the frame. So I can't take it out. I could shuffle things around to make it work, but that's phase 2 once the nursery is set.

    I've been thinking about some different options now that I've got that ledge where Predaking and Devy are hanging out as well. Including maybe a shelf off to the side for the Seacons and Getaway specifically.

    Also keeping that one spot open for Selects God Neptune, as he's the perfect storm of Seacons, G1, BW, and combiners.

    Found a lone Starscream and Grapple at the Minnetonka Target today (had to travel a little farther than my usual Knollwood for an open Target). Hadn’t seen either in the wild. Grabbed Starscream but couldn’t muster any interest for Grapple. They had a Cliffjumper also.

    Stay safe everyone, it’s getting pretty weird in our fair state.

    That’s for damn sure. Hearing chinooks fly over is pretty ominous.

    Stopped at Vadnais Heights Walmart over lunch. Picked up ER Starscream (1 left) and Hotlink (1 left). They had most of the other NETFLIX figures in stock, but I couldn't fine Ultra Magnus, which I wanted. Most of the figures are on an isle endcap in toys with Hotlink and NETFILX Megs in the transformers section.

    That's the first time I've heard of one of those endcaps showing up locally! Must have just gone in, because I was there Thursday and they didn't have one.

    Stopped at Bloomington Target on lunch. They had 1 grapple, a bunch of ER micromasters, Seige Singe (what?), 2x SS Jet Shatters, 1x Roadbuster, and 1x Offroad Bee.

    Also got a pile of loot from TCP. IF Heat Death (rad but fiddly), Generation Toy Red Bull (just rad all around) and Master Made Renji (Rad but... master made is so weird....) Good day for robots!

    Eagan Target had SS Roadbuster. That's about it for new stuff.

    Before I go wide on this ask...does anyone here not only have a 3D printer, but capacity to print out a replica of G1 Getaway's gun?
