    I can make that happen in about 6 months when Galvatron shows up.

    I also totally forgot ravage isn't like... a preorder. I suppose enough youtubers had him fall off trucks, so it makes sense. Also looks like Goldbug is actually shipping. Got a shipping notice from Pulse for waspinator too, but no tracking yet.

    Also, I dunno of the TMNT fans here are into BeastBox, but I got their Raph/Mikey combo today, and it's super good! The van combined mode expectedly janky but still looks good, and their 'bot' modes are actually a decent size and pretty dang well articulated. They're a really nice crossover.

    AV Target off Pilot has two Slug, two Grindor, two Gnaw and a Wreck-Gar.

    What else are people looking for? Because they have two Jazz and Jolt as well.

    Just Waspinator, really. Since my Pulse order seems to be in limbo.

    Richfield Target has a Slug and two Worlds Collide. Also a Galvatron with the good shoulders.

    Eagan also has two Grindor and two Slug.

    GameStop had Waspinator in stock on their site last night.

    But of your Pulse order is processing it's probably already on its way.

    Lol, and yet, my Slug from Target seems to be delayed. XD I'd cancel it if it wasn't for the fact that I got like $12 off way back when I preordered.

    But the real treasure today was this find at Cedar Cliff.

    Savage Target had a BW Megatron amongst the Magnus and Galvatrons.

    I grabbed a Slug from Pilot Knob. It was the only one I saw. They also had what looked like Leader Blackout in lighter colors. As well as a Deluxe Gnaw.

    Grabbed the only Waspinator from Champlin. Left Shadow Panther and Tracks. There was a Grindor, but just Grimlocks with it, no Slug.

    Yep fhey like redid him as Grindor with some new hands and Ravage instead of Scorponok.

    It looks nice, but don't have the room for him.

    You *may* be able to try something like that. I've seen some people get Backordered stuff honored if the item is in store. Worth trying.

    So, I did something I haven't done in awhile, actually bought a non 3rd party toy. Picked up that BW Ravage to add to my misb show only BW collection. Anyways, I noticed this after I placed the order.

    MN SPECIAL TAX $0.26
    MN STATE TAX $3.64

    I understand there's taxes when you order online but what is the MN special tax? Just curious as I don't think I've ever noticed that before?

    I *think* that's where they stick any city/county taxes.

    Speaking from experience it's easier for coding purposes to categorize them as "special" once they've crunched the numbers.

    Versus a finite number of 50 states.

    I have those and also a county tax. I looked up my local taxes and my county also has a transit improvement sales tax, which matched the rate of what Pulse calls "MN Special Tax". State law allows regional authorities to assess their own sales tax.

    Here's a sales tax lookup tool using your address: Sales Tax Calculator and Rate Lookup Tool - Avalara

    Bought a buncha beast wars stuff at Cedar Cliff Collectibles, some of the stuff that was marked complete was missing pieces. So like... normal Cedar Cliff run. They do actually have a decent amount of solid BW Stuff right now tho if people are looking to plug holes in their collections.
