Not gonna worry much about Brunt got I got on three Reflectors!
Found Series 2 BotBots Blind packs at Clackamas Walmart. Pretty much picked thru it. Here’s what I snagged. I think the Tennis shoe was already grabbed being upfront otherwise the whole case was there.
The legends are true! Spotted the Mythical Giant Robotic T-rex at Ross, downtown Salem. Sorry, I snagged both of them, 1 for my son's upcoming birthday, and 1 for my greed. If he is here, that means Northlanscaster and Keizer Station Ross should have them too. Downtown Salem Ross were always the pits for the hunt, legends such as this normally only shows up at either Northlancaster and Keizer Station, but this time, I guess I got lucky.
Are there, by chance, any back-end developers here in the Portland area?
Two pegs worth of the Wave 1 G1 minibots at the Johnson Creek Walmart. Didn't go to the Eastport Plaza Walmart.
For Cyberverse collectors, Go! Calendars in Clackamas Mall has 5 TRU exclusive Thundercrackers
Just grabbed the only Siege Leader Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime at 82nd Wal-Mart in Clackamas.
For collectors of other things, they had all the Lightning Collection Power Rangers except Zedd, and they did have the new X-Men ML wave but I grabbed the last two.
Dammit I’ve been going there all week and the day I don’t BOOM RESTOCK
That blows! I hate it when that happens.
I'm literally all caught up with Transformers until Wave 3 of Siege and and the August releases for Studio Series drop.
So I stopped in at Beaverton Target this morning to see if there had been a restock. Lo and behold they had BOTH Studio Series Bumblebee Optimus Prime AND WFC Siege Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime. Needless to say, I was overjoyed.(y'all know how I am about my 'Primes)
All those good feelings were gone when neither of them rung up at self-checkout. I went to the cashier and they informed me that the street date for SS OP was ~5/12, and Galaxy OP was JULY ~22.
Instead of checking with a manager to inquire about this, she just gave the items to Customer Service and told them to go make sure there weren't any other ones on the shelf. I was then sent away empty-handed.
TL : DR - Beaverton Target technically has SS BB Optimus and Galaxy Upgrade Optimus, but good luck BUYING them. They literally would not 'Shut up and take my money.'
(Oh....they DID also have a Siege Chromia or two, a Prowl, and a Leader Class Shockwave, but who knows if they are going to pull those off the shelf or not at this point.)
I’m glad I wasn’t there I would have blown a gasket over Siege OP. I usually go through self checkout and if something doesn’t beep the employee there usually just manually enters it... but damn that sucks
Ss38 Optimus has a 5/12 street date? Wierd as fuck. He's been popping up fairly frequently in Portland at Target and Freddies. Try your Freddies. Both of the ones I go to regularly have one or two SS38 Primes for a month or so now.
That's probably because of the markup. I've heard it has been in the area, but always for ~20% more than retail.
At any rate, I ended up just ordering SS38 on Amazon because I didn't feel like going back to Target with the DCPI's and hoping to get a different cashier/manager. If you have the time/patience/connections there, all the power to ya!
SS38 Bumblebee movie Voyager Prime and Rampage has/is on clearance for $7, $13, and $21 at Walmarts... YMMV
Transformers Toys Studio Series 38 Voyager Class Transformers: Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime Action Figure - Ages 8 and Up, 6.5-inch - Walmart Inventory Checker - BrickSeek
I just stopped by Beaverton Target and saw the Shockwave that came with the Prime they took from you. Apparently the Shockwave is clear but Optimus can’t be sold (don’t worry it wasn’t back out). Go figure....
Found some loose G1 figures, plus whatever that Soundwave is, along with what might be a Gobot, in what looked to be pretty good condition at the Curiosities antique mall in Beaverton. They had Outback as well, he's just out of frame in the pic
That Soundwave is one of those 3 points of articulation bath toys you can find at Walmart right now...
Ha, was pretty sure it wasn't an antique, just couldn't really tell what it actually was
Well no more hunting for me in Oregon. I’m in Nevada now heading out to Texas as a resident. Bye guys
Aww. You'll be missed!!
