    AV off Pilot has *32* Deluxe in back, so had them check. As there were only 2 Blackarachnia on the peg.

    Also, oddly enough, they have Core marked as 50% Clearance. There are none in stock and no tag on the pegs. Just in the computer. That's weird.

    Other than that: 2 Primal, 3 Blurr (still $19) and five Hot Rod (still $27).

    -----

    UPDATE: Dude dug through 30+ back stocked figures and came back with one each of what he saw. It was Warpath, Cheetor, BA, Arcee, and Airazor.

    Always bummed when they do something like that and apologize for not finding something. It's like "Bro, that was awesome. Thanks for even checking."

    Took the Airazor, but presumably more in back? Hopefully they stock the rest they've got.

    Found the second wave of Retro boxed Headmasters at Andover Walmart today and picked up a Weirdwolf since despite not having checked my Titans Return version of the figure since he's in storage, apparently all the Titans Return Weirdwolf figures have had their cockpit doors break? From what I read, the magenta colored plastic is super brittle.

    Wonder if this retro box one will have the same issue down the road.

    Did they have any full sets left?

    EDIT: Andover was all out of Headmaster wave 2, however Coon Rapids Walmart had one Highbrow, Weirdwolf, and ONE EXTRA PFIZER SHOT!!!

    Now I can finally tell my wife that collecting Transformers saved my life!

    Never had that happen with mine....

    Also, man, that's why I don't go to Cedar Cliff. That place is weird.

    As of yesterday, nothing interesting at burnsville Target or Walmart.

    ::EDIT:: Nothing interesting at EP Target or WalMart either

    Me neither, but from the sound of it the inevitability is on par with TM Megs.

    Mine titans return version did. Right on the hinge. I can still get it to sit there in either mode but it doesn’t take much to make it fall off.

    My Unicron was just delivered. Holy shit, I've seen a lot of pictures of the box but I was still not quite prepared by its size. Barely got it through the front door at my work. LOL!

    From what I'm seeing in the Unicron thread, I think basically they got a batch in and randomly picked the recipients and created labels on 3/8 to ship out. The people who weren't part of the first USA batch probably are waiting for the next batch coming from Asia. Seems like you either got one of the 3/8 labels or nothing so far. Sucks for those who haven't received any shipping notice yet, but hopefully not too much longer until the next batch arrives to the USA.

    Eh, been waiting for a year and a half, couple weeks won't kill me. Especially since I finally snagged a Ps5 of Sony's site and Wave 2 Kingdom stuff is in the area...

    Yeah, I backed later but got mine first.

    If it makes anyone feel better, I’m cursed with buying defective stuff, so I’m sure I’ll get the crap copy so you don’t have to.

    Anybody want to place bets on what’s gonna be wrong when I open him up? Missing finger?Broken maw? No Unicron just a dead raccoon?

    I would have thought they'd group them regionally for shipping purposes. Basically send them out such that they'd break down in to smaller and smaller batches as they got closer.

    So ir wouldn't matter what backer number you were, but if you all live in Minnesota you'd get them fairly close together as a midwest batch got closer.

    Maybe they are just pulling them out of a hat?
