    Mid Rivers Target - 1 Studio Starscream came home with me. 1 studio hot rod still left there. No other new stock.

    My Selects DC comes tomorrow, my 1st purchase of the Sideswipe mold. But I keep thinking of the Netflix version, I guess the battle damage isn't bad... I'm going to talk myself into it, aren't I?

    The Florissant Walmart had at least three of each of the Netflix Wave 3 deluxe's and for the Masters of the Universe fans there is one flocked panthor there not with the other He-Man stuff it's on the opposite side a little further up.

    Also Florissant Target had nothing new regarding Transformers but for Masters of the Universe fans again there is one ninjor and one Stratos there.

    Is it a Missouri thing or are all Core Class figures ridiculously rare? I see the pegs at different places but always empty and or sold out.

    Also, still looking for Netflix BB or SS Jazz! If you spot one, lemme know!... I don't wanna hit up eBay :(

    I saw Netflix BB still popping up in CoMo as recent as this week. I’ll grab one if I see again.

    Core class has been fairly common along the Kansas/Missouri border. Some of the Targets I visited today in north KC even got a big restock on Wave 1 with Rattraps, Primes, and Vertebreaks galore.

    Actually what I haven't seen much is Leader Class for Kingdom, a Prime here and there but no sign of Megs and Magnus.

    Finally found some Wave 2 Kingdom Deluxes at the Walmart near Zonarosa, got Huffer there only to then later find them all in St. Joseph at the North Walmart where I took home an Airazor.

    Bridgeton Walmart has:
    Wave 3 Netflix deluxes
    Wave 2 Retro Headmasters
    RED Cheetor and I’m assuming there’s still an Arcee around.

    Despite being initially skeptical, I did end up getting all of the Retro Headmasters and selling my Titans Return versions, except for Highbrow.

    Brainstorm: never had him previously
    Hardhead and Chromedome: no question these are a huge upgrade
    Mindwipe, Weirdwolf and Skullcruncher: The differences are mainly small cosmetic changes, and when they gain a neat paint app in one place, they lose another one elsewhere. Overall I like the new ones better, but it was the more G1 HM sculpts which put me over the edge for MW and SC. Surprisingly I like the old head for Weirdwolf even though it’s isn’t very evocative of the G1 HM.

    Highbrow, man did I struggle on this one. He was the one I had as a kid out of all of these, so I’m probably being more critical. But even though the new one is probably more accurate to the G1 toy, I just love the rich blue and the HM sculpt on the old one so much that I couldn’t part with it. I ended up selling the new one to a friend and keeping the old one and the box for display purposes.

    Thanks for the heads up Gizmotron! I happened to stop at south Belt Walmart instead of north tonight and found Wave 2, with the exception of Huffer (which I was most interested in). I picked up Airrazor and Ractonite and there’s one each left of those two and Arcee. I was about to post that when I saw your post about North Belt. I ran over there and was able to grab my Huffer. Only a Huffer and Arcee left now. Thanks again!

    I agree on how nicely done Selects Deep Cover is. However with the inversed color scheme on the the Netflix version, it just seems like a separate character to me. I'm even toying with the idea of buying another of each and doing a part swap to make even more. Fingers Crossed a Clamp Down is announced today as well!

    That's understandable. I went from just wanting Chromedome and a Mindwipe to keep in box to also picking up Brainstorm and Weirdwolf. Weirdwolf I even switched the faces between the TR version and the Retro version, Brainstorm I'm stuck deciding which one I actually prefer (both are nice). Sooner or later I'll likely pick up Hardhead just because he looks really nice, too.


    Not a problem. Looks like they were moving pretty quick, too, glad you found him.

    Got my 2nd covid shot without having to do the 3-hour drive after all, woohoo!

    That said, the Walgreens on Natural Bridge and Lucas&Hunt has these 3 displays. Not sure what they are or how much they cost. Not for me but if you guys like 'em, have at 'em:

    Thundercracker, Grimlock, Prime - 1 of each in the promo isle.

    Figured out the “mirror-neck” comment. SS Dino has his car sideview mirrors running up alongside his head in robot mode. I didn’t realize that’s what those were until I looked at him again tonight. I just thought Whovian was having a stroke.
