    Huh. Found a single SG blurr at target mt laurel. I thought it was just birthday luck. Didn’t scan though, and the person said it would ring up at 71.99 and I was like ouch no thanks. Showed her the hasbro pulse page at 29.99 (even though this obviously didn’t have the comic, that’s as high as I would go), but she couldn’t price match it. So that’s a bummer. Oh well.

    Any Kingdom Rodimus sightings at Target lately?

    EDIT: Had to go a little out of the way but I got one. Wanted to use my stash of Target Circle rewards and Promo Gift Cards. Final tally: $24.41

    Have seen this a few times now.
    Hasbro didn't strap down the beast head/ chest.
    Result.....it pops off easily.
    Either drops or customers pulling a 'LeBron' on them.
    I know Hasbro is trying to phase out the plastic, but this goes too far.
    A single sheet of plastic over opening, like Kingdom packaging would resolve this.
    Instead, Hasbro is extending the open packaging to Legacy next year.
    Probably Studio Series to follow.
    I feel sorry for the parents who buy this not realizing something's missing.

    This is the 2nd Thunderhowl I've seen like this. The 1st the beast head was inside the box and I was able to fix it. This one, no such luck

    Finally made it out to Target Rt 4 - The aisle is a disorganized mess, but it seemed they got stuff in.
    Spotted Kingdom Rodimus, lots of T-Wrecks, two World's Collide, a bunch of those Re-Action figures which never sell, slew of Core Class figures, and deluxes scattered around. Cyberverse stuff, etc...

    Those reaction figures are 18$! if they were 5, they'd sell. Why are they so much?

    Thanks for the tip! While there I remembered seeing a news post the other day about it, I thought it was the US but I forgot it was Canada.

    My only guess is the licensing costs? But yes, I'd buy so many of them if they were more affordable.
