    Nice! Is the Tracks UPC an individual code or is it a luck-of-the-draw assortment?

    Well, it's listed separately but I don't know if they're receiving normal cases or character specific cases like with Wingfinger hitting some Walmarts. Nothing makes sense anymore.

    Got that right. I'll be back in town in a few days so perhaps the oracle will reveal things by then.

    Have you tried reading the entrails of a sacrificed man like in The Witcher?

    Incidentally I just finished watching the Witcher.

    Let's not get drastic when kronatron already found the best method:

    *clears throat*

    O great and wise Oracle, who aid to Optimus Primal and his Maximals didst give e'en though out of character did they themselves comport an to their series afore one dost compare, wilt thou a goodly answer to kronatron provide when he return whence he now goes?

    I went to Campbell Walmart to get some groceries and (like always) checked out the Transformers section of the toy aisle. I nearly fainted as they had GALVATRON!!!! He came home with me, but there were also 4 Rhinox's, a few Cyclonus's, Optimus Primals, Ultra Magni, several core class (no Soundwaves) and a lot of Netflix figures as well. My Galvatron has the misassembled shoulders, but the "rotate and twist" method looks just fine. I don't mind the pin showing in the front. I may try the disassemble fix later if I get brave. He's great. Very solid. Tight joints, perfect scale, and easily (IMHO) the best looking Galvatron yet. Highly recommended.

    Alright boys and girls, sounds like Slug and Grindor are hitting now so it's time to put on your boots and your hat and start hunting! Kirkwood, Brentwood and South County showed more than one on hand, but I already called Kirkwood (only 1 on hand so probably not a new case) and Brentwood (says they have 2 on hand, but can't find them anywhere, meaning they're probably on a cart somewhere in the store waiting to go out).

    And *that’s* how they get you.

    In all seriousness though, there aren’t any pics yet so it could be fake. But two different users reported secondhand that these have been spotted.

    You aren’t kidding. I’ve checked all the Targets and Walmart’s in North KC and no Galvatron.

    LOL -- brutal.
    I've only got a handful that I'll be on the lookout for from here on out but I'll keep an eye open for you guys anyway.

    Just one, though. The left one. The right one is a bit out of focus and rather lazy.

    Picked up Grindor and Slug from CoMo Target just now. They were the only ones on the shelf unfortunately but means they are out there.

    Thought I was going to strike out, but I woke up from a nap and felt inspired. Called around and confirmed that Arnold had Grindor, but I didn’t want to drive that far unless they had both. Then I hit pay dirt at Kirkwood, got someone to check in back and they found Slug and Grindor for me! I just picked them up at the front desk. Yay! And Tracks comes tomorrow!
