    Was just at Midtown Target earlier this afternoon. The only thing of note I saw there... was Autobot Ark. It's likely still there for anyone who wants to go grab it for themselves. I wish I could, but I don't have either the display room or the money to get it for myself.

    Ark? Didn't know it was out yet, cool but not really interested either. For similar reasons and just not interested in the ark as a transformer

    Just saw Best Buy of all places has Slug available. Ordered on and is scheduled for pickup on the 11th.

    They're also got Wingfinger, Scorponok, Tracks, and Rhinox.

    Not to be a parade-rainer, but isn’t Best Buy notorious for just giving you a blind figure from the assortment?

    Ugh, now I'm torn between doing that and waiting for my one from Target since that had the $10 off cartwheel deal on it. ><


    That was my thought too, but the listings are usually for the assortment, and this one seems specific.

    Makes sense, and I hope that’s the case!

    I just hope folks don’t cancel their other preorders only to get the bait-and-switch :/

    I, for one, will gladly let T-hybrid be the guinea pig. XD

    There are definitely assortment listings there as well. But this wasn't one of them.

    Thankfully I've got my Target PO to fall back on. Provided it actually comes.

    I'll be a guinea pig here as well I guess as I ordered Slug and Tracks from them to pick up on August 11th as well (the day after my b-day. Yay!)

    Of course NOW, the Target stores will finally stock the shelves around here then cause I ordered online.

    I want Scorponok and Rhinox as well, but not as much and figure I can get them easier down the road.
    Kingdom Rodimus Prime seems to be the one I'm not finding as easy to get ordered online.

    Eagan Target has Wingfinger, two Skorpy's and 6 Origin Bee. That's about it.

    Edina target has 1 Origin Bee, the extra Worlds Colide pack I returned, and some of those Bee Movie leader bees among many other bee-themed things.

    Also an Airrazor if people were looking for her.

    Do Worlds Collide owners have the really loose hips and knees on Fangry?

    His legs and Blackarachnia's neck/breastplate are loose. Rest feels fairly solid.

    A bit, but they seem to work okay. He's not FLOPPY, just not a lot of resistance.

    Bloomington Target has some charge bees, a bee/barricade set, a buncha Kingdom arcees, and 3 Origin Bees.

    Random Tangent: But as someone who frequents Cedar Cliff I appreciate how, better or worse, the guy will buy anything.

    That said, moments like this make me wonder if he's going to reconsider that policy. I imagine someone sold him a tub of tapes and as he was digging through he was like "oh f**k what do I do with this..."

    might be missing a picture there, bud.

    Transformers Masterpiece

    MPM Bee Movie Op is available on Target's site for delivery. I look forward to the clearance prices?

    I’d have to disagree that he buys everything. I’ve tried to sell modern Joes and Transformers to him. He just pawed through it going “Ehhhhhhh you got any Star Wars?”

    Went right over to Hot Comics and Mike bought it all.

    Everything I sell is meticulously sorted and bagged, so the buyer doesn’t even need to spend the time going through it. I’d say he buys whatever he can convince the seller is worthless. He also claims he’s the only one in town that pays cash (as opposed to store credit) - which is demonstrably false. Sure, he’s got some good G1 stuff, but I’m gonna guess he doesn’t pay fairly for it.
