    I hope you mean you had a pre-order for Jetfire there. If you are still waiting for it, you might as well start poking around at Wal-Marts instead.

    Brickseek says the following Wal-marts should have 2 in stock:

    Manchester, Bridgeton, St Charles, Fenton, Eureka and Lake St Louis.

    Anyone else notice the trend of the outer West County & St Charles County targets/walmarts being the ones to get the new figures?

    Can confirm that Bridgeton Walmart currently has zero Jetfires, BUT the pricetag is up on the bottom shelf.

    Baby steps.

    Thanks for the Time Warp recommendation! Checked them out this afternoon and was blown away by their selection. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable too. Ended up getting a Classics Starscream, but they did have a Siege Jetfire in stock. Definitely worth checking out if you want to find cool random stuff from older lines at decent prices.

    We’ll see about that. I may go have them pull the UPC and figure out if they’re coming in on tonight’s truck or if they’re in the back somewhere.

    Sounds like they have Jetfire at Time Warp Toys, so that is an option. Unfortunately now that it is property tax season, I need to be more careful with my spending decisions. Jetfire may have to wait in my situation.

    I tried to call Bridgeton Walmart but I was stymied by my favorite manager, Stephanie. At least, it sounded like her...didn’t bother to identify herself on the phone, natch. She “didn’t have the equipment with her” to look up a UPC. (Then go get the equipment, dummy.)

    Debating going up to Walmart or calling the St. Charles store.

    Ok I went up there and found the box in the middle of a pallet with other stuff for the new floor set. *Yoink*

    Weird that there’s no way to see the actual toy without breaking the tape. Gotta cross your fingers and hope for no QC issues.

    One left! Good hunting!

    Paid my credit card bills tonight, so I've got tomorrow to figure out if I want to drop the money on this...

    I’m a Jetfire fan, not a Skyfire fan. But I gave in to the hype because one of my best friends got him and talked him up. He’s huge, he looks great, he has some neat engineering tweaks, and he’s very close to cartoon accurate.

    That said, he has a few frustrating aspects, mainly due to tolerances or plastic quality. But he’s really great despite those. If you have room for him on a shelf, he’s definitely worth the money.

    My credit cards are getting far too close to their limits, so it's more a matter of finances than anything else. If money wasn't an object, I'd have ordered Jetfire(and Omega) online months ago. As is, I may have to wait till the prices drop a bit.

    Checked Bridgeton Walmart after work and didn't see Jetfire. Probably should have just asked someone who works there.

    I ordered Jetfire from Entertainment Earth and used the promo code INSDCC2019 (code is good until 8/15) and Got $10 off and Free shipping. Has to be an instock item. he's showing out of stock right now, but I kept checking throughout the day (for a week) and he finally showed up. Came out to Be $75 to get him delivered to me. Omega I KNOW will go on sale during Christmas. I'll be patient on him ....first sale where he's $5 off I'll probably jump though lol.

    Jetfire though...Pretty sure hes gonna be a scarce one and didnt want to risk not getting mine.

    He's been fairly well stocked online on Pulse since his release @$79.99.... but yeah always better to be safe than sorry.

    Target in Chesterfield has 2 boxes of rainmakers. Highlighter rainbow starscreams make me kinda dizzy so you guys can have at it.

    Picked up the last voyager long haul they had.

    A few new cyberverse figures, sadly no Cheetor.
