    Once I floor-polished the hip and thigh joints and tightened my rivets, my Tracks figure was just fine. Oddly enough, my copy of Road Rage was fine right out of the package.

    My Tracks and Road Rage were both fine out of package. Bummed that so many needed tweaking. It's a beautiful mold!

    Hopefully Target gets Legacy Wave 1 up today. I still have the Circle offer to use, and Wave 1 sometimes gets released early!

    I Finally bit the bullet and bought Kingdom UM with the 25% off a toy deal at Target, along with the Red card discount since its probably the most accurate Cartoon version I’ll get for a while. I’m not the biggest fan of his alt mode, but he’ll be staying in his traditional robot mode anyways so I’m happy. Now I need to get some 3p filler and matrix holder that I’ll use from Hotrod since he shouldn’t have the matrix IMO.

    I bought Magnus with it too, I had a $10 gift card thing from the circle deal and 5% for my red card so it was like $25. I think it’s worth that, not full retail though. Now I just need to find a leg extension kit that won’t run me as much or more than the figure did.

    Preemptive cancelation. They are just saving time and canceling the pre-orders before they are made.

    Better to buy in stores. Even if they do ship it, the boxes end up with more scratches for me

    Does Brickseek or Popfindr still work for checking Target inventories? Neither are coming up results for SS Slug (for weeks), but it could be that he's not actually in stores. Just wanted to verify before I keep using it.

    It really only works with Popfindr, but even then you have to be in store and use the new touch screen scanner. Popfindr now displays a barcode associated with the item. Look up Slug and you’ll get the barcode. Take it to one of those new machines and scan it and it’ll tell you if they have stock. Though at this point you’re better off ordering online than wasting your time trying to track him down in store.

    Looks like the $10 off $30 for pickup is targeted so YMMV but certainly worth checking to see if you got the offer. Thanks for the heads up.

    Well, I’m not sure. When I used it on ER Astrotrain last year, it told me the exact numbers they had, but then again there were no other leaders in the store so I don’t know if it’s for the entire assortment or individual figure. Might be individual figure from what I’ve read since some have had more success than I have with finding a Slug.

    my targets never have crap for pickup...you have to be lucky and find something just put out or you dont get it. Only got galvatron because someone posted on board they had 2 out and wasnt sure if they had correct shoulders. Went during my lunch hour, both still there, 1 with shoulders. Used the 25% off 1 toy to get it since it was on my phone. Wasnt listed for pick up. Maybe if I wanted to collect the masters of universe stuff and didn't already have a battlecat I now regret buying...because thats about all they have in stock for pickup. No gi joes, no transformers, no star wars...sad but saves me money.

    And they finally cancelled my gnaw.... I really regret getting a red card especially since that $40 off code means nothing now and the best I can get from customer service is "go buy it in store" not even a friggin gift card for compensation....
