    Target Mooresville had one each of the kingdom voyagers in the back. I picked up the Cyclonus. Presumably there is one primal in the back still.

    Found Warpath yesterday at the Holly Springs Target along with 1 more WP and 3 Paleotrexes, a near-full case of Cores (already had the Cores and Paleotrex from Amazon) and a K OP. Everything else was gone or just empty. Went there looking for a Thrust, but it was gone, more on that in a bit. Wasted the rest of the checking other Targets with nothing new on the shelves.

    Today went a bit better. I was able to get a Thrust from the Holly Springs Target after checking Target.com and saw that they had Thrust again and this one I could actually order online for in-store pick-up which I did.

    When I went to get it, I stopped at the TTC Target in Raleigh first, and they had 2 more Thrusts on the shelve (they had some yesterday, but they were gone before I got there). I picked one of those up, just in case the Thrust at HS turned out to be the wrong item or a returned-in-bad-faith item (i.e. something other than Thrust in the box).

    While I was there, another seeker (pun intended) came and got the other Thrust and also asked about Kingdom Voyagers, which they got and I was able to piggyback on their request and get a set of my own, along with the other two deluxes I was missing. They didn't have any Leaders and I didn't ask about Cores. From what I was tell, TTC Target should have 2 more Primals, 2 each of Warpath and Paleotrex, and 1 each of Blackarchnia and Cheetor left, still in the back.

    Went to Brier Creek Target to look for Leaders. Nothing there, but they had three Thrusts at the electronics counter when I was there around 5:30 pm. While they didn't have the leaders, the guy at the electronics counter checked for other stores, and called the Morrisville Target to hold a Megatron at the guest services desk for me. After I picked up my Megatron, they should still have 1 Megs and 2 OP left in the back, I assume because I stopped in the toy dept. and the TF section look as desolate as every other Target's TF section.

    When I got to the Holly Springs Target, I was able to get my other Thrust and it was indeed Thrust. I checked the TF section again while I was there, and everything, including the Paleotrexes and Core and Leader OPs that I assumed would shelfwarm, were completely gone. But they did have the Buzzworthy Bumblebee deluxes FWIW.

    And since I know someone will ask, I completely forgot about asking about SS 86 releases until I was on my way home.

    It was nice to meet you. Sorry if I seemed a bit cold or off-putting, but I'm not much of a people person or talker IRL.

    Oh no, you were fine! Sorry I wasn't super talkative.

    Unrelated: if anyone is looking for Blackarachnia and/or Paleotrex, I've wound up with a spare of each (MISB). If anyone wants them for $20 each, let me know. If I don't hear from anyone I'll just take them back to Target.
