    Be careful what you ask for.

    Got Runabout at the St. Joseph Target, but it also had to be retrieved from out of the back.

    Yup. All are easy passes for me and my favorite Character is Starscream. Now Huffer and Inferno on the other hand look really nice.

    Would have preferred the giant Fire Ant Inferno but yeah those two are great.

    I guess the way I look at it is, these Core figures are a way for younger kids and those less well off to have a good version of these iconic characters at an affordable price. Do I have a place for them in my collection? Probably not, but...let's see what the Ark looks like and then these might make a heck of a lot more sense.

    My only Inferno is the POTP version so the Kingdom one looks good to me. To each his/her own.

    Talked to my guy at Target, said an end cap is going up around the 6th and Trust has a spot on it. Anyone else have their Thrust pre order go to "backordered"?

    My core prime came in today and I’ll wrap up the review tonight.

    The target in Edwardsville doesn’t seem like had been stocked in over a month. Still have leader shockwaves on the shelf.

    That's the way it's felt at the Stateline Target for Waldo too. Had to drive all the way out by the Airport to get the exclusive Seekers two pack when it came out after both State Line locations were picked over. I think we've got our own version of the Gambit/Rogue guy at the KCMO targets.

    Unfortunately, "backordered" most likely means "will soon be cancelled." That's what happened with my quinteson.

    That's awesome news! I try to avoid target pre-orders to avoid the crushing disappointment of cancelation, but the in store availability has dried up on exclusives in KCMO city limits. I really wish target would limit customer purchases on exclusives as it only takes one bad apple to create artifical scarcity in the area. I know they get their money either way, but I can walk to the Wardparkway target and still often shop elsewhere for anything I need because I've become so frustrated with the lack of availability on figures.

    I was holding hope that we would get both....cause Hasbro does that sh$t. But at the rate the line has been revealed....I wonder if we havent seen 90% of it already.

    I'm sick of seeing last year's "refreshed in new packaging". But Im also the guy that is hoping TR Misfire gets a refresh in that Walmart headmaster line.
