    Andover Target has 6 Origin Bees. And a fancy new header over the TF area.

    Grabbed a World's Collide set from the Eagan Target. One remains. None at Target.

    8 saucer Bee's at St. Paul and the midway stores. Don't have time to head up there.

    Tip of the cap, sir.

    The funny thing here is I was at the Eagan store yesterday and they had literally *nothing* on the shelves and the one time I didn't grab anyone to bother about the DPCI go figure it was probably in back.

    I'll see if I can get there again tonight yet. @einhazard already was kind enough to lock one down for me but maybe between the two of us there will be third available to help someone here.

    ALSO a reminder that I have a spare T-Wrecks arriving tomorrow from Target. If anyone here is interested let me know and you can have it at cost. I'd rather it go to someone who wants it than back to the store for some scalper to scoop up. I'm debating listing it over at the Sales thread and just shipping it in the Target mailer to someone who doesn't live in the one state that's currently selling them in stores.

    Don't feel too bad. Thursday was the day historically for a lot of Targets to restock their toy depts. It might have come in on a truck overnight. And on that note, the person at the IGH store did say they had 2 coming in soon -- like tonight or tomorrow -- as well.

    Went out toy searching today at Target stores as others must have... Was out from 9am to 1pm.

    Coon Rapids - Had almost the entire new Marvel Legends Iron Man wave minus the one I really wanted...Ultron. Still picked up Modular Iron Man (the 90's cartoon and video game suit), Stealth Iron Man, and Vault Guardsman. Left Dawnstar, Ironheart, and that VR Iron Man...

    Andover - Nothing of interest when I was there this morning.

    Blaine along Highway 65 - Nothing of interest when I was there.

    Northtown - Nothing of interest.

    Champlin - Nothing.

    Maple Grove - Had one lone Modular Iron Man from new Marvel Legends wave and 5 Origin Bumblebees...I picked one up, but $22!? Ouch.

    Not much new huh? Let's hope we start seeing new stock next month. I haven't been to the store in quiet some time so no updates from me. If you haven't gone outside today don't, it's awful

    Well, since T-Hybrid grabbed the other WC set from Eagan, I now have an extra one. HMU if you wanna swing to bloomington or Hot Comics in Richfield and grab it. I'll prolly return it back to Edina Target in the next couple days if there aren't any takers.

    I’ve wanted Marvel Legends to do that modular armor for some time. I hope it will get re-released on the retro cardbacks eventually, but I’d hate to pass it up in case they don’t.

    Kingdom began streaming on Netflix today. I strongly question the standards of this entire series.

    The show is so weird. The animation quality is highly questionable. It's just off. Lots of small issues but all together it's not like. Awful just. Odd and not that good. At least that's how I see it

    I have to wonder here...looking on Target's website, it seems a lot of the new Kingdom Transformers (Rodimus Prime, Tracks, etc) seem to have a release date of August 1...I'm guessing many stores are going by that date. Hopefully that's the case here.

    I remember the terrible Toy Biz version of the Modular Armor Iron Man with that cut on the faceplate so you could see the Tony Stark face underneath, so to have a really good figure of the armor at last...

    I do agree it should also get put on a retro card, and I'd guess it would be with a more comic/cartoon color scheme of red/yellow instead of red/gold.

    I'll crack the set open oncey kids are in bed, but having them in hand...these color's are great. As I said elsewhere, going by G1 repaint rules this Blackarachnia would easily pass as a brand new character. And I love Nemesis Primal and hope he has a role to play down the road.

    I wish Fangry had guns, and also Bee is there. For the price of the set, I wrote him off as a pack in.

    T-Wrecks is now plentiful on Target.com with options to pick up, ship to store, and ship directly to your door. With that in mind, I'm just going to take the second one that's arriving today back to Eagan at some point this weekend.

    Went back to Coon Rapids Target real quick today...the remaining Iron Man wave of Marvel Legends were gone that I left...otherwise, nothing.

    Oh! Here's a question for everyone...has anyone been looking in Walgreens for Kingdom Red Alert?

    It seems like Walgreens is trying to get out of the toy market despite Hasbro still giving them all these exclusive Transformers and Marvel Legends. I went to a few today, and the action figure areas are pretty bare.
