    *Both* Dinobots? Talk about a humble brag.

    Ordered kingdom deluxe Scorponok and Tracks through best buy last week, just picked them up today. They're okay, but not the best I've seen from the line so far. Tracks desperately needs tighter joints in his legs (easy enough fix) and Scorponok looks weird and kind of stumpy and has a slightly underwhelming transformation (nothing I can do to fix that).

    His transformation comes off as something they could have gone all the way with on a Voyager but couldn't make him one because it wouldn't have been scale.

    In other news, saw this at Target today. Oddly enough it is called a decorative pillow and *not* a throw pillow.

    2 Grindors at Edina, 1 at Bloomington Target. That's about it for tonight.

    I was tempted to buy one of those. Then I considered I’d be spending $30 on something the kids would just constantly pelt each other with.

    It was down to $20 if that changes anything. Also wouldn't pelting people with it be the whole point?

    I'd use it on people who broke the build at work.

    Well, Vadnais Target last night had 4 Dracodons and NO soundwaves. Vadnais WalMart had 1 netflix rustyboi
    Shakopee Walmart had nothing interesting, Shakopee Target had 2 Core Soundwaves and 2 Dracodons. I grabbed one of the soundwaves.

    And, just for @T-Hybrid :

    Also, Amazon dropped off scorponok. The waist on mine was fused until I put a blowdrier to it for a few minutes. He's.... fiiiine. I don't like his weird Cotton Hill legs or the shortcuts they took with the engineering.

    Secret Walmart had a pair of Netflix Primal feat. Rattrap. That's it for anything of note unless you're interested in He Man, as they had Revelation Skeletor and Him-Dude.

    Andover Target has four Kingdom T-Wrecks out...and unbuyable cause of...of course, a street date.

    Really am more interested in finding Studio Series Slug (Slag) and Kingdom Tracks right now, which I assume DON'T have street dates.

    These are what I'm after as well. I have them pre-ordered on BBTS as a safety check, but I would rather find them locally and not pay to ship...

    My Kingdom Tracks just shipped from Target Monday, coming from Tucson. So hopefully deluxe wave 3 is moving through distribution and to stores shortly!

    Congrats, that's a sighting. I don't think anyone's seen him in the US on shelves before.

    Really?

    Had I known, I'd have taken a picture, but for some reason either my phone is too old, or I'm stupid, I can't transfer photos from my phone to my desktop. Always gives me errors.
