    You can try Simple Green, a soak in Super Clean (available in Auto Zone), or you could try nail polish remover (non-acetone version). Use at your own discretion.

    Woodbury East Target had 9 Grimlocks when I visited today. That might be the most copies of one Leader class figure I’ve ever seen in store.

    Wow! That sounds like some kind of weird distribution error!

    AV Target off Pilot is now out of Hot Rod, which I assume is in part due to the $26 sale price.

    There was one 86 Blurr among the Deluxes, as well as a fresh assortment of Kingdom W1 deluxes that *weren't* smashed.

    Pulse Premium is offering Grimlock and BW Megs "Back in Stock" if you're still a member and looking for one.

    Also, God Neptune is back in stock. I'll always throw in a cheap plug for Seacon and Seacon-accesories.

    Yeah, my BW Megs finally shipped from there two days ago.

    Anyone interested in a discounted Barricade vs P/CP set? Barricade's gun snapped coming out of the package, so Amazon sent me a replacement. I can actually return the first set for a full refund, but I hate being wasteful so I figured I'd ask here. I also glued the gun back together so well that honestly you can't tell. Let me know ASAP if you're interested.

    How discounted we talking? I've been sitting on the set for a bit on Amazon and if I wanted to buy them or not.

    Probably $30? Like I said, I can return them for full price. Just trying to reduce the waste a bit if I can.

    Hmm... Okay, I'll take them off your hands.
    I'm still trying to find a Ramjet/Dirge set that isn't over $300 if possible given I lucked out on the Ratchet/Lifeline and Ironhide/Prowl sets at their retail prices. Some day...

    **************************************************************

    Also, I'm mentioning this now to everyone here in the MN sighting thread...

    I'm thinking of selling my Masterpiece/3rd party Masterpieces as most are just sitting in storage right now as I just don't have the space to display them... I'm also a bit burned out on the line with the higher prices and crappier QC issues and finding more fun with the current Hasbro TF offerings.
    So, before I hit up Servo over at Hot Comics on everything, I'm seeing if maybe there is interest with people here.

    I know some people would say I'd get more selling things online, but I don't want to go through the hassle of mailing stuff to people everywhere. Just don't have the patience for that.

    Anyway, I'm still thinking about this, but seeing if there is interest.

    Hidden Walmart off Cliff and 35W has more Bumblebee and company. Also Brainstorm and Hardhead. I’m debating on getting them.

    EDIT: Getting Hardhead but leaving Brainstorm.

    They had quite a few when I was there yesterday. Even if not, the one by McStop isn’t much further south.

    Shakopee Walmart has several of the headmasters including Mindwipe and Chromedome. Also a RED Megatron and Soundwave.

    Speaking of Punch/Counterpunch earlier, I have the Nonnef Soft Tire set, but I ended up not liking it, anyone here want it?
