    Used Brickseek and Target DCPI# 087-06-5849 to get POTP Beachcomber & Slash at the Target in Newport, KY this morning. According to Brickseek, they are also at Western Hills, Colerain, & Fields Ertel Targets. Mine were in the back storeroom and a nice Target employee got them for me.

    Please ask your Target employee nicely - I want to be able to keep doing this in the future! It would suck if a couple of rude/pushy people caused Target to rethink getting things in the back for people. If your Target won't get them in the back for you, say "Thanks!" anyway and try the next store.

    I'll stop being everyone's mom now.

    I'm pretty sure they're all that way, and I'm also sure this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. It's not like a portion of the proceeds are being donated to his reelection campaign or something. The lettering under the symbol is so small that you only notice it if you look for it.

    I’m sorry I don’t get into politics but I think it’s ridiculous. I’m sure other presidents have said “make America great again” and heck has anyone even came out and said that’s what it actually means? But just to add to it there is a song called “make America great again” performed by guess what? A Jazz group.

    I picked up a set of POTP deluxes at the target in Heath. They got them out of the back for me. There was still one set left.

    Did they put the other set out or did they put them back in the back?

    Really? Interesting. I went by there earlier and they didn't have anything out. I didn't ask a staff member if they had the figures in the back, so that might explain what happened.
    Fields Ertel Target still has a TR Octane, Megatron, and 2x of Broadside, and several sets of TR legends wave 5.

    That’s crazy, I just grabbed a whole set of PotP wave 1 deluxes and they had one of each in the back when I left at like 4:25.
    Also grabbed 3 of the 4 Legends from the back, left Shrapnel behind. They still had one each except the 2 Shrapnels.

    I'm pretty sure there's a lot of Republicans who would tell you MAGA is nothing to do with the Republican party. That said, it could be a Bernie bumper sticker on a transforming Prius and I'd still be irritated as hell with it. I see enough politics everywhere else, I don't want any of that in my Transformers. I don't care what political affiliation any of my Transformers pals carry. This is a thing that brings people together. Do we have to use it to divide us? Seems so very, very stupid.

    Hasbro's statement on it was satisfactory to me, and I brought home a set from the Mansfield Target today. Jazz is better than he looks, and the transformation is fresh for about 15 seconds, but those back-plated fists are still pretty crap. Can't believe they're going back to the Combiner Wars well. A great Jazz figure, without any gimmicks would sell hand over fist. And I can guarantee he'll never be anyone's arm or leg in my collection.
