    Arg! Of course I skipped going there last night because my wife didn't want her chick-fil-a getting cold. XD Ah well.
    I'm not super looking hard for those guys, but I am interested to see how I feel about them when I see 'em in person.

    Also, got the first wave of hasbro zoids from the new series from Pulse. They are.... ehhh. Like, fun to put together, look cook, but some of the design changes they made in how the parts are seem bizarre from the JP counterparts, and the motors on these are weeeeeak. They're supposed to be faster, but I can't even get the raptor to walk. Too bad they're too pricey to import. Ah well, there's enough other plastic robots to hold my attention. I still wonder if/when we'll see the new zoids in brick and mortar.

    I’m unloading a complete Chaos On Velocitron set for $160, if anyone’s interested! Box has some dings, but it’s all there.

    So there's a new toy store in MOA called Hey Joy, and they have... uh...

    Power dasher zetar? That said, they had the Arcade Renegade botbot packs so I was FINALLY able to find a few of the figures I was missing. It's an interesting store to be sure.

    What are the prices like? It looks like a Toy Liquidators type of place.

    Damn. Shakopee Walmart didn’t have crap today.

    I tried looking for R.E.D. Arcee online. Far as I know they are Walmart exclusives for now but the listing said $47. Pretty sure that’s gotta he a third party seller....I mean scalper.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Just gave it another look and it says shipped and sold by Walmart. Wtf? https://www.walmart.com/ip/Only-At-...ced-Design-Transformers-Prime-Arcee/654239852

    EDIT 2: Megatron is $40. Optimus is $47. Bumblebee and Cheetor are about $20. Price is all over the map with these things. I sent them some feedback and hopefully they correct it.

    About $5 over retail. Not too bad for MOA. I was thinking the same sort of thing from what I saw there. The most recent thing was probably SS Jet Shatter.

    Man I was thinking it was just the way it was filtering for you so I looked too, but you're totally right, it's all over the place. Weird. Good luck with that! I'll keep an eye out for ya.

    Speaking of Walmart, Bloomington Walmart had Kingdom Wave 1 deluxes w/the exception of Warpath.

    FC27F142-65AD-4937-8C1C-373E831E8FFC.jpeg If anybody still needs WFC Omega Supreme, I’m selling mine, opened and displayed, for $140.

    Box isn’t perfect, but decent. Accessories are still tied into the box, never removed.
