    Missed it- hopefully it goes up again. Or one is spotted at a Target or Walmart in the wild this weekend and can put it aside please lmk.

    Also if anyone happens to see an extra Walgreen’s Red Alert and able to put it aside for me a PM/DM/SAC “start a conversation” meassgae would be greatly appreciated.
    I do not believe he is due out until August.

    Pulse has updated with 5 of the 6 GI Joe Cobra Island figures (no Viper).

    Also, Target has updated their site and now has both Baroness and the Viper available for preorder.

    I got my Tracks from GameStop today as well. I don’t mind the transformation, but damn his hips are loose AF. Are yours this way too?

    I know it’s an easy fix, but come on, Hasbro.

    Aw, man. Now he's showing up already!? XDXD

    I just found Kingdom Galvatron today at three Target stores.

    One at Northtown Target, which I bought.
    One at Coon Rapids Target.
    And TWO at Andover Target. I hid one just in case anyone wants one, but can't get there anytime soon.

    Also of note...I think all of them had the incorrectly assembled shoulders?
    To me, it's not a big deal, it just means there's a bit of an extra step transforming Galvatron...just flipping the shoulders around and stuff. Otherwise, I'd really not have noticed if I didn't see so many posts on the forum about how "wrong" they are.

    It'll be interesting to see if Slug manages to break through the assorted kludge of SS Scavenger that popped up at a bunch of my nearby Targets ever since those Grimlock sold through.

    I have no idea how it happened either, as he's got Overload as a casemate but I haven't seen a single one no matter how many Scavenger there are. Is this some kind of situation where the warehouse had a bunch of old stock sitting around that got screwed up because the Overload listing was never able to get fulfilled due to having the wrong DPCI? Like there were a bunch of cases gathering dust so they cracked them open, put the leader on the shelf and god knows where the other guy went.

    I’d say this is likely… which means finding Slug might often be a matter of asking to check in back for more stock. Hopefully they’ll clear those Scavengers out eventually like they did the Siege Shockwaves.

    HTS on eBay has Overload for MSRP. Dunno if anyone was still hunting that.

    On top of that, they've got Scrapper, Scavenger, Mixmaster, and Skipjack. The last three for $22-24.

    That's 5/8 of SS Devy. Not bad.

    Grabbed the one and only Kingdom Galvatron from the Brooklyn Park Target. Has the wonky shoulders. Also nothing, almost literally, at Champlin Target.

    Does anybody know if the wonky Galvatrons are actually assembled wrong, or just packaged that way?

    Definitely assembled wrong. At least every instance I've seen. Haven't seen one that was correct but just had the arms mistransformed.

    Welcome! The only real requirement is every October we ask everyone if they remember that one Halloween when there was a blizzard.

    Indeed it was. Although Wikipedia classifies it as an “Ice Storm,” which sounds so much more badass.
