    He has been spotted in a few Targets around the country. Don't think we have had any MN sightings yet?

    Nothing new at the Quarry Target.

    Hyped for Rodimus Prime. One of my favorite characters despite the strange space.. motorhome? Looking alt mode. I don't think there are any MN sightings yet

    Found Origins BB at the Target on Lake / Hiawatha. Seven left!

    Nothing else interesting TF-related. Impressed with how nice the place looks after last year's nightmare.

    Eagan Walmart just reset their action figure aisle. Put out a bunch of W1 core figures and for anyone interested plenty of the Ursa Major Legends wave.

    I've yet to see him in a store, but I had the "notify me when back in stock" box checked on the target app for him and after FIVE tries of clicking the link in the email, I finally managed to add him to my cart before he sold out again.

    Shakopee Walmart has the RED Bumblebee, Starscream, Cheetor, and Soundwave.

    They also had some retro card Joes. Stalker and Cobra Trooper. There was even a vintage Hiss Tank on the top of the shelves on the other side by Transformers.

    Other than it was just Kingdom wave 1 Deluxe and Core.

    Richfield Target has a trio of Worlds Collide, potentially minus one this guy next to me is about to take.

    ....also two of the Clunker/Barricade SS Buzzworthy 2-pack.

    Eagan Target only had core prime and Megs of note. Wingfinger too.

    Wingfinger? So W3 must have come and gone already. Good to know.

    Also, doing LAST CALL on this spare T-Wrecks now that I've got him in hand. Otherwise I'll return him to Apple Valley (off Pilot) tomorrow during my grocery run.

    Valley Creek Plaza has Origins Bumblebee. I got one, there’s still several more on the pegs. Looks like they’re in the middle of stocking new stuff, so could be more soon.
    Origins Bumblebee is great, by the way. One of the best BB toys we’ve ever gotten. Great hand feel and solid robot and vehicle modes. Really nice.

    2 FrisBees left at Woodbury Target. Also grabbed the only World's Collide set there. Only interested in Fangry, so if anyone wants the others, let me know.

    Went to a few Walgreens today looking for figures (including Kingdom Red Alert), but all I found was a lone Earthrise Bluestreak at one.

    I have to say, Origins Bumblebee is surprisingly complex to transform for a deluxe. Lots of folding panels, particularly the legs. Given he has to go from robot to Frisbee, it makes sense though.

    I did order pickup for Bee. Bloomington had some of the big Bee Movie bees with the wheel in their chest (were those good? I passed on it back then).

    Origins bee is fun! His back kibble is a bit messy in bot mode, but he's got a great vehicle mode and I'll agree with Allnames that he's got a some fun engineering going on.
    Kinda wish they woulda made it so he could hold the energon rods in his hands.
