    I feel your pain. After about 20 visits to various health facilities for an ongoing medical issue, I've had to cancel a bunch of preorders.

    In fact, I'm going to have to do a first-ever culling to see if I can use the proceeds for said medical expenses.

    I was thinking about giving my pals in the STL area first crack at the goods, easier to inspect and look - no shipping charge on account of free pickup.

    Are there any forum roolz I need to abide by for that kind of thing?

    BST section has its own type of rules but not sure if you were to post in this for instance. Maybe message a moderator to be sure?

    I’m not aware of any problem with that. I believe Quaddy would be the best person to ask for BST questions though, but I think you’re good @kronatron.

    Thanks! Will do.
    I still gotta get a bunch out of storage but if all is good I will compile a list with pictures and pricing to see who's interested.

    Quaddy?

    Edit: Ah, I think he meant Superquad7.

    Well, I had a stroke of good fortune today. I saw a lone Ultra Magnus up on the top shelf at Kirkwood Walmart. I reached up and pulled it down but dropped it by accident. To my horror, the top popped open and his accessories went scattering across the floor! I was like what the heck did I do?!

    Apparently someone bought him and returned him sans twisties. From what I could see, nothing was broken or missing. Just then a manager walked by and I flagged him down (Reggie). Turns out he was the new toy dept Mgr and had only been there for 4 days, so he still cares about his job I guess. I asked if they would be able to do anything on the price since it had been opened. He not only said yes and tried to look it up, he went and got a printer and brought it back, changed the price and manually printed me a new price tag! I had been really on the fence on getting Magnus, but $37 seems like a good price as long as he’s complete and unbroken.

    So, yeah...not often I have a good experience at Walmart, so I thought I’d share. I went up afterwards and told a higher manager about it....just so happens Reggie had gone up for something and heard the whole thing. Kind of awkward but I’m glad I’m a way. Although it was funny when I came up he saw me and asked (possibly in a slightly worried tone) “you good?” I had to be honest and tell him I came up to talk to a manager about the great experience I had.

    That's awesome. Not only can I not recall ever seeing Magnus in the wild, but to get such attentive service at Wallyworld, too? Better buy a lottery ticket and remember who your best friend on the forum is ;)

    Siege Ultra Magnus? I’ve seen him plenty of times but he’s more rare than Shockwave since Shocky is repacked with Galaxy Prime.

    Weird. I've seen Shockwave like 30 times. No Magni coincided with my hunting times.

    Alas, no Galaxy Primes either.

    Must be me, then. By the time I get there, the waterin' hole's run dry or it's still just a drizzlin' and I miss the rain altogether.

    Sad.

    BTW - Hanley Walmart has three G1 Soundwaves. $50 too steep for me but y'all have at 'em.

    So are there any collectors in the St. Robert/Waynesville/Rolla area? Just moved for employment and seeing what the scene is out here. Back in DC we had local meetups semi-monthly and was curious if there is any of that around here.

    There's a Jetfire at Bridgeton Walmart on the top shelf.

    Bridgeton Walmart Jetfire appears to have finally been claimed, hopefully by someone with a better budget than myself. I probably would have caved and bought it eventually. Perhaps another time.

    I just went to the Lee’s Summit Target on a whim and grabbed the Studio Series Optimus Prime with trailer and jet pack. Hopefully it’s worth the price.

    And yes, I have both previous versions of Prime because I’m a sucker like that.

    Bridgeton Target for some reason clearanced a whole case of Cyberverse deluxes for $9.99. I walked up and found a Sharkticon just sitting there. I’m not really interested in any of these but for half price, I couldn’t say no to a Sharkticon. I sold my old legends one and kind of regretted it so I’m happy to find this one.
