    Nothing interesting at Edina Target.

    Meanwhile, Ark came today and he is suuuuuper good. Mainframe seems like the actual robot itself was an afterthought, but like... that's fine. Still works as a bridge and a wall.

    Prolly one of my favorite titans. Might be my favorite figure in Kingdom.

    Nothing new at Pilot Knob AV Target. I think we're in the pre Xmas doldrums.

    Too bad I don't give a sh- oh yeah nemesis primal is pretty cool, but I won't buy recolors. Keeps my light wallet a bit less light. They had like 5 there. Still no Rodimus.. must find in person, some OCD need to get him in person drives me forward

    My Ark came in at BBTS a week or so ago. Just shipped my PoL with it over the weekend too.

    I didn’t get a chance to post, but I got an email from Pulse the other day, saying Earth Mode Sideswipe / BW Skywarp is shipping soon.

    Amazon. I had some credit card points so I cancelled my pulse on when I saw he was in stock and got him for about $60. :D 

    Looks like Tricranius and Warp/Swipe are shipping soon!

    Wingfinger just fingerwinged his way into my mailbox today.
    I was on the fence but the more I mess with him, the more I find to love.

    Okay, people...if you're still looking for Kingdom Deluxe Wave 3, you might want to check your Target stores.

    Coon Rapids Target had all of the wave (Tracks, Wheeljack, Wingfinger, and Scorponok) x2 of each.
    Northtown Target also had 1 Tracks, 2 Wheeljack, and 2 Wingfinger. The 1 Scorponok came home with me.

    Thanks for the heads up. I still want to find a Tracks near me (even if he is flawed)

    I did the fix someone on the forum showed gluing those plastic tabs that strap the figures down in the box as well as Future polished the leg joints and my Tracks is pretty good now.

    Annoying I had to "fix" things, but I made due as Tracks is one of my favorite G1 characters that sadly lately seems to get flawed figures. (First Masterpiece and now Kingdom)

    Would anyone be interested in a loose (but still have the packaging and inserts) Kingdom Rodimus Prime?

    There's nothing wrong with it except that the Autobot symbol on his chest was off center and so I put a sticker over it to "fix" it and there's tiny stress marks on the area where the spoiler moves around on his back...which looking at many other peoples' photos, is a widespread issue.

    Like this photo I saw from the Kingdom Rodimus Prime thread shows...where the black plastic is...next to the painted red vents(?) are...hard to see, but I see those on pretty much everyone's copy.

    Asking price wise...I dunno... I'm never good with prices cause I don't expect someone to pay the full price for an opened product. I'm just seeing if anyone is interested first here I guess.

    Pretty sure @WallflowerBlush is interested. XD

    Also, mine's got the stressmarks, too.

    But it's okay! I finally got my display table back from my wife (she's been using it as her WFH desk) and I'm setting up an '86 display:

    .... I need to find Springer's gun.... he just looks really enthusiastic to be included right now.

    I have an extra Tracks, if you want him.

    (Or if anyone else does.)

    Hey everyone, Fall Con is Saturday. Sept 25th. at the State Fair grounds. I'm setting up a booth full of Bots both old and new. I'll have Parts, Comics, and a few other interesting surprises.

    It's been a while since we've had a meetup and thought we could get together for a little while and catch up with each other as to where we are all at in the hobby. Also, if anyone want's to bring toys to sell or trade, I'd be happy see them.
