    That's the guy. I didn't realize there were so many 3P MP Omegas.

    In terms of MP scale...I think there's 2? Not sure on that. I just remember 2 in particular.

    I went to Hot Comics for the first time last week to check out Fans Toys Kickback (I have the other two FT Insecticons) after seeing your post here. Not sure what I was expecting but I suffered from severe sticker shock after seeing the box and left the store in a daze.:oops:

    Aaaand true to form, found Inferno and Dinobot at Shakopee WM, right at close tonight. There should be one Dinobot remaining in the morning.

    I’ll still keep my Pulse order, because I’m sure someone here will need them.

    And hey, great news! Hasbro fixed Grappel’s peg problem!

    Yeah...what they priced them, especially Kickback took me by surprise when it seemed a number of other characters were reasonably priced. Apparently though Kickback was more expensive than the other two because he's often broken at those tabs around his wings. I never transformed him due to that very reason.

    A lot of my MPs, at least the 3rd party ones never went into alternate mode because of hearing of QC issues. ..Which is also part of why I sold them. I wanna transform my figures without being afraid of breaking them. Breaking a $30 toy versus a $300 one... Yeah.

    I think they priced Kickback at the going rate, which is fine. I got into 3rd party just in time to catch the other two FT Insecticons at MSRP, but couldn't get Kickback. I guess that'll remain a hole on my shelf forever because I'm never going to pay the current going rate for it.

    I can see where you're coming from with the MP stuff. I guess I count myself lucky in that I haven't really experienced any real irreparable QC issues. I transform all my MPs at least a few times and so far haven't been hit with too many issues. I did dodge a recent bullet with the Fans Hobby Naval Commander, but I might be getting an XTB Menasor trailer at some point so my luck will probably run out with that one.:p

    Man I always see this posts AFTER I start work and can't run over there. But, my Dinobot's about to ship as well, so... *shrug* I might actually pick up Inferno if he's fixed, but my peg problem was one breaking off in the hole under his foot when I had him in vehicle mode.

    Also, got an email about Unicron stating "You might get a tracking number in the next few days but it'll take a bit longer to ship"

    It almost doesn't feel like i'll actually ever get him (not complaining about the time, just always feels this way when there's so much space between a preorder and a shipment), but I guess... I'm getting him soon?

    No sign of Dinobot or Inferno today (The North Metro is kinda crap for new stuff anyway), but I did find the Studio Series Jazz, Blurr, and Kup at Andover Walmart if anyone was still looking for them.

    I've seen that the new wave of Power Rangers Lightening Collection is out now, too. Of course, the ONE I'd want of the wave is short packed to 1 per case...Green Zeo (Adam). Hasbro and those wonderful case pack outs.

    They're not exactly broken as they just have one piece where the plastic is too soft. Took me five minutes, put a dab of super glue on each side, works flawlessly now. Hell, I'd even do the fix for you.

    I picked up Inferno and Dinobot at secret walmart today...
    Dinobot came with a Dinobot card, and Inferno came with a Megatron card.

    Edina Target has a bunch of Kingdom deluxes and a core Prime. They got all of the SS86 line except for Scourge there too.

    Anyone know if Roseville Walmart has any decent stock in? I don’t want to make the trip out there unless I know it will be worth it. Man I’m still mad the Walmart in St. Paul closed.

    They had a bunch of Netflix stuff pegged, but I didn't look through them.

    How soon should we expect people to start finding Kingdom Ultra Magnus given he's been spotted in Walmarts now in other states?

    I managed to get Inferno and Dinobot today, So I'm caught up on Transformers for right now.

    I feel like it was only a week or so before Inferno and Dinobot hit, before they started popping up here.

    Where did you find your two new Voyagers?
