    Scored a Kingdom Galvatron at Paseo target around 8:10 am. It was the only there but did see a Rhinox as well.

    Lomas Target and one Magnus and Galvatron. I picked up the Galvatron. They also had plenty of wave 2 deluxe and they had wave 3 of the core class figures

    Picked up Rhinox at Eubank Walmart, there was also a Cyclonus and 1 lone g1 box wierdwolf. Can't remember what else was on the shelf. Did see plenty of Lego 60s Batmobile if anyone's interested in that.

    A question for those finding Galvatron in the wild, is the mis-assembled shoulders showing up or is the North America stock fixed? Haven't seen him but I think thats a figure I should buy when I can check it out in person.

    So far galvatron stock in stores nationwide has been approx 50/50.
    That's for both Target & Walmart.
    Some fixed, some not.
    No pattern, just luck of the draw.
    All BBTS early ships were unfixed.
    Amazon has shipped out both.
    Other online sources have yet to be heard from.
    Be patient.
    Galvatron is the last kingdom leader of year.
    Plus I've heard it will be re-packed in wv1 of next year's line.
    Finding fixed shoulders in-store should slowly become easier.

    Sounds good, thank you. I've been on the fence about pre-ordering it from BBTS.

    My Galvatron I found at target came with misassembled shoulders. It doesn’t bother me too much I just learned to ignore the visible pins when I did the quick fix

    This past Thursday found 86 Movie Leader slag at target on paseo, was the only one there. Didn't know he was out yet, was nicely surprised to find him. Keep an eye out at the other targets for him.

    Awesome find!! Goodbye POTP Dinobots which were okay, but I always thought they were too small.

    Nothing new today at Rio Rancho and Coors Target, but at Cottonwood Walmart a brand new driver crunched into the side of my truck. But as a consolation prize I found the new Netflix Voyagers, 1 Primal, and 1 Seeker. I took the Seeker and limped my truck back home until I can get some estimates. Good times.

    I’m dumb and ordered Volcanicus, even though leader dinobots were coming. But I’m just gonna keep him combined.
    Bummer about your truck! Hopefully insurance can help.

    Nice finds, and sorry to hear about the truck technomad! I haven't been buying a whole lot, so have nothing to report. Lot of interesting stuff on the horizon for a lot of different lines.

    I was so pissed off a couple of days ago. I happened to check my phone in the early morning when I saw an email from Hasbro Pulse showing pre-orders for the G.I. Joe Classified Baroness with the bike. Had it in my cart and went through all the log-in and shipping info screens. Then I got to the payment screen. I don't have any of my card info stored on Hasbro Pulse or my phone. So by the time I get my wallet and half awake enter my info, it's sold out. Like straight ripped out of my cart and thrown the middle finger. So pissed! The very fact that this character is so hard to get has kept me from buying more of this line. All I have is Cobra Commander. I would love to have all the other regular retail figures but it would always feel incomplete to have a Cobra line-up without Baroness. At least with TFs if you missed out on ER Prowl and Ironhide we have like 5 or 10 other deluxe size Prowls and Ironhides that you can put in its place and its fine. You can't do that with these size Joes. Oh well, first world problems.

    baroness will have more releases, and there are other bikes, heck, she can pilot the batbike from the white knight McFarlane line if you want a specialty bike.

    Thanks for the condolences. Yea it kinda sucks, although the kid did have insurance, and I have the claim filed now. So my Ridgy (Ridgeline) is sitting in my garage waiting patiently. But I may have to argue for a full paint job because of unibody construction on them, and its 13 years old. So I figure I am going to have to put some money into it for this too. For the last year I have been fixing it back up and pretty much rebuilt the entire engine, and gave a lot of TLC to the transmission and it drove almost like new. But no one got hurt, so there that anyway.

    Also YO JOE- I still want to get the Retro Baroness, Lord it should not be this hard. As I really start to wind down on transformers, I am really starting to like Gundam, and the MOTU stuff too.

    I’m glad I skipped most the GIJoe stuff. I have cobra commander and Destro. A friend has a Zartan for me I need to pickup, then I’m done.

    I did get Kingdom Scorponok today from Amazon, and Galvatron should be here tomorrow! So that’s fun!

    I hope they find a way to do another run or version of Baroness. I'd even settle for her blue suit version or the Crimson Guard version. Just to have the character.

    Yeah, my rekindled interest in GI Joe started up again when Hasbro's YouTube channel started streaming episodes of the OG show. I had a few Joe's, but no vehicles or anything like that. All the Kre-os though. I miss Kre-o for the minifigures. Too bad its gone because I don't think Hasbro will work with Lego or Mega Construx any time ever.

    Just picked up the Tiki Giki tumblers of Prime and Bee from Eubank Walmart. 1 Bee left. A bit (actually a lot) overpriced for a water bottle, but I liked the concept and needed a water bottle for work anyways. Does seem like the paint will come off easily though.

    Finally saw that Sparkless Seeker today, I was really impressed by the way it looked. Didn't pick it up though. Next time I see it I will. I also saw a Zartan at my local Walgreens. Two in fact just chillin' on the shelf. Didn't pick him up either.

    Nice, I want that Sparkless seeker, but money's tight right now. Just got in Zartan and 3 Cobra Infantry from BBTS. Very nice looking figures. I need to get a new bookcase before I can open these up.

    Any sightings on Origin Bee, Worlds Collide, newest waves of Kingdom, or anything interesting to us collectors???
