    Glad that the W2 united deluxes are finally hitting shelves. If only it was a few weeks ago when they were on sale.

    We got 2 Shards, a Chromia, and a Gears at Edina target. Also if anyone happens upon a Black Series Glavis Ringworld Mandalorian during their hunts lemme know

    Whoa, those must have showed up recently cuz they weren't there on Monday!

    Bloomington Target had less interesting stuff. A couple origin wheeljacks and one '86 Blaster as well as an '86 snarl

    Nabbed a Shard and Chromia at Edina Target (left one of each and the Gears).
    Richfield Target has nothing new but does have a Legacy Skyquake and Transmetal 2 Megatron at $35 if anyone missed those.

    Is it Skyquake (green) or Dreadwing (blue)?

    Not to be that guy, but if you grab that at the $35 price cut you could probably flip that pretty easy.

    Me too. Swung by the target on York and grabbed gears and shard. Would’ve grabbed chromia but this chromia imo is worse than the siege one, Prowl just doesn’t fit well for it.

    I didn’t think it was worth mentioning because they’ve released so many variants of that character, but I specifically remember the green box. At least you know they are out there.

    Don't be that guy. XD

    The only place I've seen Sandstorm in brick and mortar form was gamestop in the same strip mall as Hot Comics. I believe Hot Comics had one too though? They also had Shard the last time I was in there.

    Speaking of Dreadwing, he was about the only thing interested at BVille Hidden Walmart, unless you're a big Detritus fan.

    Unfortunately, the North Metro seems to hate having any of the new waves of stuff. I ended up just ordering Sandstorm off BBTS.

    On that note...if anyone sees the Studio Series Bumblebee concept Megatron... I've seen photos of people in other states finding him in their Target stores. Looking for him and I think I'll be caught up on Transformers I'm interested in right now.

    I saw him recently but unfortunately can't remember where. I think it was one of the two AV Targets. He's wavemates with the open-box Primal repack.

    EP Walmart had nothing interesting. Their toy section continues to shrink.

    Man that SS Shockwave is a ton of fun. I was expecting it to just be an upscaled Core version, but there's enough different that it feels simple to transform but involved enough to be worth the voyager price. Gears is also one that I find myself surprised by and keep coming back to. So much good stuff so far this year!
