    Target app said 205 had three T-Wrecks available, but they cancelled on me when I tried to do in-store pickup. Might be worth checking out later if you need, they could still be in the back.

    So my Kingdom Rodimus arrived yesterday. Quite a few QC issues. It's really disappointing because he is a great design. Just passing this insight along for those hunting and waiting.

    Yeah, my trailer just won’t stay closed. Bummer, especially at the Commander price point, but I got him for bot mode.

    My trailer doesn't stay closed when the compressed-turret-gun-thing is pegged inside the trailer.

    But if I take it off the peg, fold the peg in, leave the compressed-turret-gun-thing floating loose inside the trailer, the trailer closes up fine. :confused:

    Need help finding Worlds Collide set. Fairview Target employee kinda lied to me about when they’d go out. He acted like he was holding something back while I asked him. Now it appears they’re all gone.

    The fact 205 is doing that remodel that’s separating them from the mall, and if where they originally placed those Origin Bee’s are any indication, things are getting shuffled around and placed where they have room right now, so don’t expect a lot from 205 going forward, lol.

    I feel like even if they weren’t doing the remodel, they would have still just half-assed it to be honest.

    Most Target employees in this area do the least amount of work possible and, like Kantus mentioned, will just say anything to get rid of you. Hell, the rumors are one of the workers at Clackamas just scalps stuff before it even hits the pegs.

    My favorite was when I called 205 last week looking for an item, they told me they were sold out and Fairview has it. Called Fairview, they told me they didn’t have it but 205 had it. I called 205 back, called their bluff, then got told about “speculative inventory” and how the computers are wrong.

    Called the next morning for the same thing, different worker told me “oh yeah, we got those in yesterday, I got them out of the back for someone who was looking, sorry.”

    It’s just a constant run-around with them. I try not to shop there whenever I can.

    The trailer is really annoying but I also pulled his arm off the pin (fortunately it slipped back on) and one of the tiny front fender peices keeps falling off (similar the Hot Rod design).
    I hope to find another Rodimus in the wild that doesn't suffer from so many defects.

    Where did y'all get your Kingdom Rodimus at? I've been debating buying on eBay due to utter lack of control and patience

    Picked up Worlds Collide set at Tanisbourne. They also has a bunch of TWrecks on an end cap, not in the TF section. Looks like an area for Target exclusives.
