    Thanks
    A nice gal at SLP Target checked for me, and no stores in the area have any Origin Bees yet. She said it shows release date as 8/1. Apparently folks have purchased these on other states, so apparently/hopefully not register-locked.

    Same. Looks like he’ll possibly be as plentiful as Core Bumblebee / Daniel.

    Was up north tonight so swung through the Coon Rapids Target and Andover Target and Walmart. Not much of note but the WM does have a single retro Chromedome in a very nice condition box.

    Add me to the Origins BB hunter group.

    Apple Valley South Target has Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, and Baroness G I Joe movie figures for those of you that collect them.

    I may be too late to this show, but please let me know if anyone finds a Star Wars Black Series Echo (Target exclusive), Vintage ARC Trooper (Walmart), or vintage ARC Trooper Captain! I didn't realize these childhood favorites were getting releases since I wasn't really following Star Wars toys and it looks like I may have missed out on them due to the usual distribution disaster.

    Okay so I'm losing faith in my T-Wrecks order. If anyone spots one in store starting tomorrow grab it and shoot me a PM.

    Same with me, but I’m not worried yet, it’s still showing next week.

    My Rodimus Prime from Target just changed to “preparing to ship.” We’ll see when/if it arrives.

    The best thing about WalMart's collector event so far is that they don't have anything I'm going to spend money on.

    T-Wrecks is available for drive up on Target's app for anyone interested. Not too many locations at the moment, but worth trying if you're interested.

    I'll hold my preorder for now in case anyone who wants it doesn't find one by then.
