    Nothing interesting at Richfield and bloomington targets. One Quintesson at Bloomington if anyone needs him. Lots of Megs and Grapples.

    Totally just saw a bunch of snapdragons at Shakopee Walmart last week. I think there were some at Bloomington Target too, but I wasn't paying super good attention.

    Would anybody be able to do pics of WfC Astrotrain with Sky Lynx? I love Lynx's shuttle and space station and feel like it wouldn't hurt to have a second shuttle to woosh around.

    Curious how they look together.

    Oh damn those look good. Especially now that we've got that Amazon Space Odyssey set.

    Turns out Siege Prowl’s head does indeed snap on to Earthrise Prowl’s peg without any sanding or modification. It’s a tight fit at first - so be careful - but once attached, it moves just fine.

    Earthrise Prowl owners: anybody else have the black foot panels just swing freely on theirs? On my Bluestreak and Smokescreen it’s not a problem.

    So I have an extra Fasttrack next to me because Pulse always ships 10 seconds after I find the figure somewhere else. Anyone need a fasttrack?


    The one on my left leg is loose but neither just flap around.

    One of my Bluestreak's flaps is like that, Rodimus...turns out it's because the part that pegs in doesn't have a ridge to get caught on the clear plastic of the "shin" and so it tends to fall out. Keep an eye on it when posing, in case it falls out.

    I'm wondering if I should start a pool for my G.I.Joe Classified Arctic Storm Shadow to see how long Amazon will have my order as "We'll notify you when we ship it." before they finally just say "Sorry, this item is no longer available."

    Not sure if you're still looking, but Edina Target has a few of the space team left today.

    So I went to target to instead of Menards this morning to pickup some outdoor led lights. Scored this!

    Does this look legit to you guys?

    Never seen a repackage at target but the price drew me in. They opened it to make sure it was in there and they said if I get it home and it's broken, then I can return it. This is what these SHOULD be costing, not 120 imo.

    I've seen repackages at Target a few times, and yeah, that looks legit. Congrats!

    Also... anyone want this second Fasttrack I've got? XD

    Save big money at Menards!

    I once brought something back and saw it hanging on the peg as a "REPACKAGE" later...despite having never opened it.

    It's a thing they'll sometimes do if you return a thing that appears opened but say nothing was wrong. Though I'm not sure what their standards are since you'll often see Mr. Swap's victims hanging on the peg with an entirely wrong figure or missing BAF part with no "REPACKAGE" sticker.

    I remember getting Transformers from Menards like 30 years ago. Got my Stunticons from there. Damn I'm an old ass!
