    Highlands Target in Greensboro had MPM Ratchet on DEEP clearance for $35.99. I only found one (that I snagged), but you may want to keep an eye out. For that price, this is an AMAZING figure. I'm not really into the MPMs for their normal price, but I'm not going to turn one down for $36.

    Target Northlake still has 1 SS '86 Grimlock left; just bought one myself. They also had all 3 SS '86 deluxe figures - which were double-merched on a back endcap as well as in the normal aisle.

    Also had some of those cheapo statues on the back endcap, and some Buzzworthy Bumblebee stuff.

    Target Huntersville had 1 ss 86 grimlock on a random back end cap. Looks like it was just put there as it was a non-transformers end cap. I left it there. This was around 5pm today. Nothing new in the main transformers area.

    For folks that have found Grimlock, do you like him? Contemplating if I want to try to find him this weekend in the cary/morrisville/durham area.

    He's a very good version. But there are some little minor things. Missing front teeth (I recently found on ebay there are upgrades for it), screw holes on his right side of his dino face , and his really dark shaded chest plate that really blocks out his autobot insignia (You can remove the plate though).

    I haven't opened mine just yet, but at a glance I'm a little bothered by the empty space where his hands fold out...for $50, they could have had a flip panel to cover it up.

    Ah, gotcha. I'd be down to ship but I'd have to ask you to pay for shipping. If you're interested, PM me and I can get you a shipping quote.

    Ebay:
    Walmart concord mills had 2 each of deluxe black arachnea and Paleotrex and one Cheetor. Also had a selection of the cores. Nothing else new. They also had a neca shredder splinter 2 pack and then a Marty Mcfly back to the future figure on the clearance aisle for 1/2 off at 15.99 and a bunch of Biffs at full price lol. The Velcro tab on the flap was ripped on the Marty. But everything else was perfect.

    Dang, all gone when I went by tonight.

    They were a couple Blackarachnias and Cheetors though. Also check the end-cap at the front of the TF aisle.
