    This afternoon I stopped at the Otsego Target. They were pretty dead except for a Kingdom Optimus and an Ecto-1. Interestingly they also had three Slitherfangs and four Double-crosses. Maybe they opened a lost case?

    Nada at Bloomington Target. I wonder when the new Zoids stuff will be coming out? It's a bummer they're kinda stripped down from the JP versions, but it'll be nice not paying 2x to get zoids imported.

    SS Grimlock has started going in and out of preorder at Amazon today, MSRP. Managed to grab one just now.

    Ships 4/1. So have a few months to decide.

    Richfield Target has 1 Cyclonus, 4 Primals, 2 SS86 Scourges, and I think 5 SS86 Hot Rods.

    Lino Lakes Target has:

    Primal X 1
    Scourge X 1
    Hot Rod X 2

    They have Seige at 30% off. Nine Shockwaves for $35 each. I found Thundercracker for $21 but couldn't pull the trigger.

    Got my shattered glass set yesterday. Prime's really great, the colors on him look awesome. Prowl's also cool, but there's something up with the molding on the head of mine:

    I feel like I should be able to take it apart and deal with whatever flash is causing the problem, but I also don't wanna wreck it. Dunno if anyone's bisected the head of their prowl or ironhide, but I'm open to tips.

    Target has shipped out all of the SS86 stuff I've preordered at a discount, except for Scourge, which I have bought in store last month. All but Grimlock has arrived so far, and I gotta say I've been very pleasantly surprised by the Deluxe figures. From reviews I thought they might be OK but flawed representations of the characters, but in hand I'm liking them a lot more than I thought I would. I find Kup and Blurr to be easily superior to the Titans Returns versions. Looking forward to Grimlock arriving in hopefully a few days.

    It seems that most Targets I've visited this week (both Woodbury, South St Paul, Cottage Grove) have some SS86 voyagers (mostly Hot Rods) and a smattering of Blurrs. Some Kingdom stuff are also re-appearing on the pegs at most of them.

    Yes I believe so, but I think we knew what he meant. I am also horrible with names (people included).

    Got two hours of sleep last night, guess it's showing. Yeah, totally Ratchet. XD

    Alternatively, I double down, go on the TF wiki and edit all mentions of Ratchet to say Prowl, creating a terrible Mandela effect for the entire fandom....

    If those two didn’t want confusion, they shouldn’t have both had horns!

    Anybody want these two for $20 total?

    Opened but complete. I love ‘em but I don’t have the space. 53408068-8F6A-4C6A-A0DA-46966C4FF5AB.jpeg

    AV Target off Pilot has a Scourge and four Hot Rod. Also five Primal and a case worth of smashed Deluxes. Not sure what happened there.
