    I don't even think Pulse sold Micromasters after the first Siege batch. The only ones after that were the Selects 4-pack.

    ---------

    Okay so having Rhinox in hand, that is one hell of a transformation. He uses some tricks from Deluxe Thunderhowl and then stores half a rhino in his legs.

    Like, if you remember the original's giant rhino skirts....yeah this doesn't do that. It's impressive. The old Prime Vehicon wishes it could do this.

    Nothing interesting at Vadnais target unless you want W2 core guys or Dinobot. Walmart across the street had some Netflix cheetors, sparkless, and Deep Cover.

    Nothing but a @kibble sighting at the IGH Target yesterday. And not even in the toy aisle!

    Eagan Target has 2x Rhinox as of 5 min ago. Crushed boxes. Thinking more and more that I'll just stick with the T30 version, so passed for now.

    Okay so they're probably also at AV but buried behind Primals.

    Grabbed the last Rhinox at Shakopee Target. Not much left there of note. Shakopee walmart had a Ractonite and 2 Kingdom Arcees and a buncha R.E.D. Cheetors.

    I like this Rhinox. He might have the most complex engineering of any of the beasts. I wish his chest had a bit more depth, but it works for the transformation and it's another one of those sort of visual tricks that they've been using so that stuff looks best posed from the front. I do like him more than T30 Rhinox, but he's a different... uh... beast.

    Got the last kingdom Galvatron from Edina target, and the last Rhinox from Apple Valley. I like both of them more than I thought I would. Rhinox feels more fun to transform and pose around than thrilling 30, but I like the green and the spinning chainguns on that one better. Galvatron is without question the best Galvatron so far.

    Woodbury East Target had a couple of Galvatrons and I bought one of them. First impressions wasn't the greatest as the outward hip joints and upper elbow joints were a bit loose for my liking. But I was able to successfully tighten them with some paint reducer and now I like it quite a bit. Robot mode is a bit chunky, but looks good enough, and I think it has probably the best cannon mode of the G1 Galvatrons I have (Fans Toys & NewAge).

    Grabbed the last Galvatron at Richfield Target. Nothing else interesting there, though they did have 4 Earth Mode Magnuses. Bloomington Target this morning also just had a bunch of Arcees and Ractonite.

    I also echo the sentiment that this Galvatron is really good. He's got a lot of mass to him - everything feels super solid, and he's probably got the best engineering of all the Kingdom figures I've gotten thus far. Just a great, great figure.

    Eagan Walmart has a fresh case of the W3 Netflix Deluxes, which is about it for anything new.

    Also, was someone hunting Lightning Collection?

    They've got the Bridge/Kai/Carlos wave. Didn't see a Tengu though.

    Oakdale Target has one Galvatron if anyone is looking for it. I picked up the other one they had.

    As usual, nothing new in the North Metro for Transformers.

    I picked up a couple of Masters of the Universe Origins figures from Hot Comics today. I've got almost every figure that has been put out now for the line except wave 2 because that wave somehow got shipped all screwy around the country... (Wave 2 is Scareglow, Orko, Trap Jaw, and Man-E-Faces)

    One Galvatron at Shakopee Target. I tucked him behind the two UM.

    Dunno who gets emails from Pulse, but they just sent out notification that there'll be a GI Joe drop at noon today. I know a few of you guys are interested in that so hopefully you have a chance to take advantage of it.

    Chaska Target has 1 Cyclonus, some Core Megatron and Starscreams, 3 Kingdom UM, 2 Arcees, 2 Airazors. All I wanted was Galvatron, but since I am working I have no time to run to Shakopee... lol.

    You are THE MAN. I got the Shakopee one. It's even correctly assembled... but I am wondering why his left arm is partially coming out via transformation.

    The box is in good condition and Galvatron is completely secure so maybe it was just a bumpy drive to the store.

    I'm at work, so I will check him out when I get home. Thanks again!
