    Picked up two seige Cogs at the Target off Glade in Euless/Grapevine.

    They didn’t have any seige things on the shelf and since I found the battle/target masters last night, and I have everything but the leaders arriving today from TFSource, I only asked the employees about the DCPI for Cog.

    The employee I asked was helpful and initially brought out a Skytread and Sideswipe, but then I showed him the picture of Cog and he went back and found them.

    Good luck folks!

    Siege Micromasters, Battlemasters and Deluxes at Sunland Park Target El Paso, next to the...*ugh*...Fortnite toys. They had everything except Blowpipe. After my purchases they still had at least two of each Deluxe, one of each Micromaster set, three Firedrive and one Lionizer.

    EDIT 1 - They also had a few of that Studio Series Deluxe Bumblebee two-pack.

    EDIT 2 - Also at Montwood Target, though more picked-over. I did find a Blowpipe, though.

    Also looks like they’re back to using bad glue for the carded figures - bubbles were detaching on at least two of the Micromaster sets I saw.

    Have there been any sightings for Siege figures or PotP Optimal in Houston? I've been looking for a while but I haven't had any luck but I might have to expand my search area

    Was it the scout sized Grimlock or Voyager sized one? The smaller one has not been spotted. I saw tons of the smaller sized ones at my local Five Below but it was only Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, and Starscream.

    The Lakeline target seems to be starting a rollout of Siege. Last week I picked up the Battle patrol and race car patrol, and this week they had a single Blowpipe but no other siege yet. They were fairly well stocked, including three of the POTP Optimus primal figures. If you're in the area I'd keep an eye out on that store. I've had a lot of luck at that location in the past, including getting all of the CW Protectobots shortly after their release.

    Found a Studio Series Dropkick at the Mesquite Target. Meanwhile, at the Walmart on 80, Starscream is clogging the shelf.

    And poor old Sqweeks and Dragonstorm are still tearing it up too.

    Got some of the botbots at a Walmart on the way home from work. Neat little figures for the price. Plastic used is pretty much like a regular transformer, surprisingly. Yes, they fit very well with masterpiece figures! Loving how well mp figures can hold the hot cocoa.

    Also, packages have a number etched into the bottom back right corner of the packaging, look for that number and you’ll know what figure you get.

    Walmart on Spring Cypress/249 has the G1 Minibot reissues, corrected G1 Hot Rod, TCG Metroplex starter set, and a couple Bot Bots left in the red island display. I skipped the Bot Bots for now.
