    Should we setup a spreadsheet for everyone who wants a Bluestreak?

    So got ER Arcee today from Amazon... steer clear, she is complete garbage. Like, I guess she looks good in both modes, but like, not really any better than any other arcees. I didn't really care about the hoverboard thing, but it's not even done well. Everything about her just feels like the designers hated making this figure. Literally no part of her bot mode makes up her vehicle mode. Her vehicle mode doesn't have a back. And I'd forgive ALL of this if she had good engineering, but she doesn't even have THAT. Folding her into something that fits under the car shell is fiddly and imprecise. If you want an Arcee, get Cyberverse Deluxe instead. Just a trainwreck of a figure.

    Ah well, at least I can cancel paradon medic and save some money now XD

    Couple of MPM Ratchet, Sky Lynx, Cyberverse Skullcruncher, at AV Pilot Target.

    Also, SS Voyagers are $26 and SS Deluxe are $18 this week. So save a bit if you see something you like. (Leadfoot appears to not count since he's his own DPCI)

    No Bluestreaks off 169 or the one in Hopkins off hwy 7.

    I’m all for a spreadsheet, but I’m terrible at that stuff.

    As a start, how about everyone who wants a Bluestreak LIKES this comment?

    Eagan Walmart has the MMPR Dinozords for $12 instead of $15.

    Also, Cyberverse Deluxe Thunderhowl and Arcee. Checked the pegs and there's actually one of each BAF figure so if you were sitting back here's an opportunity to grab all 8 at once and build Maccaddam.

    SS Leader Jetfire and Scavenger among the Megatron, and a number of Blaster reissues.

    Grabbed that extra Thunderhowl from Eagan... So like... polar opposite of Arcee. He's not the best figure ever or anything, but here's a chance where they could have been lazy with the transformation and instead gave me some engineering I have NEVER seen in a TF before. It's not perfect--neither mode is all that stellar--but man is it unique. Big big recommendation here.

    Oh also if you're looking for the cel-shaded Siege megs they had a BUNCH.

    Well, my preorders say they’ll be delivered this Saturday, but of course I don’t believe that for a damn minute.

    Remember me complaining that my Snpadragon pre-order disappeared at Walmart?

    Good news: it did not disappear.
    Bad news: has been delayed a third time.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    In other news, Prime Day is looking a little like a let-down.

    Dude you could prolly find snapdragon in a lot of places now if you ran around a bit. He's also in stock on pulse and amazon. I've seen him more and more at Target (And I feel like I saw him at Shakopee walmart last week?)

    Returned the Cyberverse Arcee I picked up a few weeks to Eagan Target. Never got around to opening it and as I got further from finding it realized it's not something I super needed.

    Especially once I had Thunderhowl in hand.

    In other news, they've got a few MPM Ratchet.

    SS Overload pre-order at Target now pushed back fo Oct 28.

    Shout-out to @einhazard for letting me know about the ones in Shakopee about a month ago otherwise I'd likely be SOL with regards to this one.

    Wonder if this will come first or Neptune.
