    Have'nt been hunting for a whiel but had a chance to stop by Walmart South Salem. Found a whole bunch of Netflix Optimus Earthrise, a few sparkless bots (barricade redeco), Black Arachnia and Cheetor, even Studio Series Bumblebee: Screamer was there; and if you are still looking for the Retro Headmasters...I think they dump it all on this location ( all of them are here: Weirdwolf, Mindwipe, Skullcruncher, Hardhead, Chromedome, Highbrow and Brainstorm). Targets in salem, forget it. I think I saw a lonely Ape Prime on both Keizer Station and Center St. Really missed out on the Quintessons, or I have never seen them at all in the wild.

    First time at the Woodvillage and Fairview store in a fee months. Absolutely nothing worth noting. If you are a 3.75 Joe collector Walmart has Cobra F.A.N.G helicopters but that’s all

    Hey y'all so I was redirected here, I'm a fellow Oregonian and was wondering if anyone else has had dealings with one JC? He's some white dude who drives around in a van with a lot of stuff in the vehicle. He's sold me a couple of Transformers and I've sold a couple of mine to him but he just sketched me out the last time me and him met and was wondering if anyone else has had business with him?

    Welcome to the thread!!
    I haven't personally had dealings....or even heard of the guy you are talking about, but just your description makes him seem sketchy as hell.
    No way I'd go for that.
    There are a couple stores that some locals avoid, but most of the local spots are ok-to-decent here.

    I guess the street date for Target Red Card exclusive Kingdom T-Wrecks is today, June 1.

    Haven't seen anyone post about seeing it at brick and mortar anywhere, or a link on target.com.

    Not sure if this will ever affect Transformers, but our local stores are starting to limit what you can buy out of normal wave case packs.

    Both Cascade and 205 Target were limiting sales of the new Marvel Legends Villains assortment to one figure per case — not one of each, one period out of the assortment.

    205 let me buy more than one when I pointed out it was an assortment. Cascade wouldn’t budge. This is brand new behavior for these stores and kind of shitty.

    Wow, that sucks. I hope that isn't common.

    Yea, was surprised when Cascade did it and then when 205 tried to do the same thing. At Fairview the figures were out on the pegs like normal.

    I’m of the mindset if they feel they need to limit these so carefully, they need to order more? Cascade said they were doing it so they didn’t sell out ASAP, but the assortment is designed to sell to one person since it’s a build a figure wave. Just order more cases.

    I can't imagine that they want to have fewer than they can sell. Maybe the distributors can only only provide so many?

    I just don't understand it. I've heard that 'target doesn't like collectors' and 'target only intends on selling 1 figure a day' or something
    how much business sense does that make? if anyone was paying attention they'd realize that the collector-aimed products sell out constantly.
    Its like they don't WANT money.....

    Don't know if anyone else watched the GI Joe Fan First Friday but it looks like Cobra Island Wave 1 is getting a re-release through Target.

    Tall order but I'm looking for 3 more Troopers. As always I'll be hunting for as many as I can get my grubby hands on but if anyone can get a spare too it'd be great! I know it sucks I need that many but damn, it's an army builder. Can't have just one of these guys.

    The PNW collectors facebook group has been posting lots of full shelves at Walmarts. It seems like things are maybe finally getting back to saturation.

    Woodvillage Fred Meyers has a Kingdom Cyclonus. Also some Tiny Turbo series 4. Why do I mention them? Some are cast in sparkly clear plastic. Look delicious.
