    Don't feel bad, I didn't live here back then so it's weird to me, too.

    Bummer, considering there aren’t even any screws so he could be easily fixed. Glad mine is correct. Also glad for people who don’t have OCD like me.

    Would be nice if the shoulders were reversed. Simply for the treads to plug in. But then the arm can't rotate so it doesn't matter to me. In store I was worried but in hand it's a null issue

    The fix seems a bit scary on the surface, but isn't that bad from what I've heard. Glad that @T-Hybrid snagged me a correct one as they seem about as common as unicorns. Was planning to correct if needed, but glad I didn't have to!

    So why are we talking about the perfect storm? I definitely remember the pictures, I was 2 then and really wanted to go trick or treating and got out of the car and just sank in the snow bank, needless to say at that point we just headed back home.

    Would make a great name for an ice blue Seeker.

    The Buzzworthy Bumblebee set with exosuit Spike is hitting clearance. It's at 15% off with 7-8 or so at Chanhassen Target.

    I was ten years old. Mom was plowing the driveway while dad was using the snow rake on the roof. There was a real fear of the snow weight causing roof damage.

    So not only three feet of snow, but all the snow Dad pulled off the roof, made for some really deep snow banks.

    My brother and I took our sleds on the roof and slid off into those snow banks. It was pretty awesome.

    Weird to be reading about Galvatrons showing up with the wonky shoulders now. The ones I saw in stores almost a month ago were good, so I thought the problem was limited to the earliest copies.

    Same here. The few times I've seen him, including the one I got, he's been fine. Hopefully it goes back to that rather than the wonky shoulders, but at least it's just something annoying and not something that janks up transformation.

    Also, nada of interest at Edina Target tonight. My buddy found Dracodon at Vadnais Target earlier this week, but there was just the one and no soundwaves.

    Galvatron is allegedly going to get repacked in the next line, so hopefully by then he's consistently fixed.

    Gonna throw up a hail mary: Anyone here have the LEGO Voltron set and doesn't want/need the box?
