    Target in Easton on Morse Rd surprised me when I was in last night.

    They had the Shadow Panther wave of Kingdom deluxes. They had everyone except unsurprisingly Waspinator, apparently everyone only wants him.

    But outside of Transformers I was surprised...

    A lone Marvel Legends AOA Cyclops which I grabbed. Plus all of the Eternals except Sprite. I don’t know if this is like that for everyone but for some reason Sprite is the hardest to find at retail I have not seen a single one of her in store. Have one coming from Amazon since she was on sale and I need to finish Gilgamesh.

    A lone Lando & Greef for Star Wars, for some reason Lando is the only one of his wave you can find anywhere. Thankfully got the wave on preorder.

    They had MOTU Origins Webstor, Green Goddess, & Beast Man. Thankfully I had gotten my set from BBTS with all four as they did not have Stinkor.

    And most surprising of all I saw my first in store appearance of GI Joe Classified Cobra Island figures. They had a few Breakers if anyone still needs him. Still no Akiko or Movie Scarlets yet.

    Thankfully for my wallet though they still don’t have Waves 2 or 3 of MOTU Masterverse or the newest NECA TMNT sets.

    My old store manager bought me a Gamestop giftcard, so if anyone sees Artfire at a Gamestop in the Akron/Canton area please keep me posted!

    Strongsville Target had Netflix Wheeljack in stock. Pristine box so it doesn’t feel like it was a return. Didn’t snap a picture.

    Renegade Toys (North Lima/Boardman)
    Cases of each that I'm about to mention. CASES, people. Galvatron (correct shoulders), Wreck-Gar, Jolt/Gnaw, Shattered Glass Optimus/Ratchet, Siege Soundwave, waves 1-3 of Kingdom, a bunch of older SS86 stuff, G1 both boxed and loose, complete. They sell 3rd party as well.

    I highly recommend them. Ask for Walt or Mike, they do right by you. They also ship to any location in the US.

    Give 'em a call!

    Hmmm...I haven't been to a Meijer in a while. I guess they're selling tf's at the new msrp now. I was hoping not to see that in big box stores until at least when the Legacy line started. Bummer.

    No. I ordered him off ebay. Too old to hunt anymore. If you find him, be sure to get the sweet ass spoiler upgrade kit. It's very nice.

    Had a couple of stores that said they had them in stock online. Did a store pickup order only for them to be wheeljack or some other figure. They have no way of tracking what they actually have since all transformers use the same identification code

    Not working. It's always another assorted figure. They're reusing the same internal numbers over and over again. Several people did exactly that and either ended up with the wrong figure or the wrong toyline altogether. The in-store staff don't "get" it and some of the returns have been problematic/talky.

    Best bet is to wait for the store to actually get it in stock and the .com to start shipping them. This update means they're one step closer. Also, keep an eye out for Pulse, they just restocked a few days back, twice.

    you were correct, being nice goes along way though. The manager apologized and took my name and number that she’ll have one set aside. It’s the season I guess

    At Meijer in Kettering, they have Kingdom Wave 4 deluxes including Waspinator, core Dracodon and Soundwave, and the Cyberverse Bumble-Swoop set.

    ... and still at least 3 ss86 Grimlocks. Gotta put those on discount please! :)
