    You can open the one you got from store, return the online one with receipt of store when you received it?

    Not transformers related but for star wars guys the black series din djarin with child set is available for online order right now! Just ordered 2 (only 1 per order so you need to place more than 1 order if you want more than 1 figure)

    I hit 4 Targets today (DC/MD). Some notes:

    - Found a lone Soundbarrier on clearance for $2. Yep, two bucks. I bought him, of course, but I was really hoping to walk out with a pile of Slitherfangs. They had some Micromasters as well, but I snapped those up long ago.
    - Speaking of: Earthrise has largely vanished from the shelves. Didn't see any other shield guys. The omni-present Clones have also vanished from the store that had like 30 or 40 of them a few weeks ago.
    - Likewise, the Cyberverse stuff that's been hanging around for some time has suddenly disappeared.

    The upshot of those: I'm expecting to see some stuff hit Ross/TJMaxx/Marshalls/5&Under/Tuesday Morning etc some time in the near future. No way they sold all those clones.

    - One store did have a well-stocked section of Earthrise with Trailbreaker, Runabout, and a lone Thrust, among others.
    - Kingdom's showing up here and there. In one store, it was on a random endcap display on the back side of the toy department, while the main Transformers section in the usual aisle had no Kingdom at all. Snagged a Blackarachnia.
    - Had my first ST86 sightings -- Jazz and Blurr at one store; Grimlock at another. Grim is HUGE!

    Got yet another delay notification from Target regarding Kingdom Cyclonus

    Likely delays because of “COVID” right? We are almost one year into this nonsense and retailers and warehouses are still having these issues?

    if one employee gets COVID19, they're supposed to quarantine everyone he's been around for atleast a week.

    ...really? You’re not raising eyebrows as to why distribution is still a MAJOR issue in commerce?

    It’s a global health pandemic.

    Its a major issue because the global pandemic is a major issue still.

    Also, Cyclonus is a toy, so its seriously of so little importance.

    So there was an All-Star YouTube Transformer panel last week. Kinda lengthy, but they seem pretty informed about a lot of things going on with toys and distribution. Something that raised my eyebrow was this:

    Apparently Hasbro is fining Target for breaking the street date on SS86.

    Comment was made about 1_10:00. Will try to find it later.

    Calm your titties. Really.

    Retailers (not just toys, so again, chill) have had almost a year to figure this shit out. A year. A year of this madness. A year of excuses and shrugging shoulders (once again, not just for toys, so again, chill)

    Using Covid as an excuse has become a joke in and of itself. I only have so much empathy to give before I get tired of excuses

    They're talking about stop-motion animation starting at one hour twenty-seven. Not gonna listen through all of this to find it. Did they say what their source was?

    You think that a global supply chain, one that has grown organically without a clean central plan, can be restructured in a year? That factories can just recreate themselves to be run on a fraction of the manpower they were originally designed with? All while dealing with ever shifting state and international regulations?

    Covid is such a joke for you... I guess, you're just in denial. LOL.

    Was watching on break and lost the spot when I switched computers. 1:30 was definitely too far in. Somewhere between 1:00 and 1:20 I'm guessing. Will try to pin it down later. Pretty sure it was [email protected] that said it. Back to teaching...

    Is that coming from a credible source? Then they might as well fine Walmart and EE.

    1:09:28 is about when it starts.

    Guess target needs to update their systems.
