    Ha Probably shouldn’t become that. It was just some light hearted joking on my part. Just my sense of humor trying to rationalize out the craziness going around us all.

    I did a similar thing on Friday afternoon going to Walmart looking for earthrise figures (no luck) then went to the grocery section to grab a couple of things...to find what everyone else has been finding at their local grocery

    Hm I think I need to go to HEB then. The Harker Heights Target if anyone is interested had 2 Grapples, 1 Hoist and whatever that parts former armor guy is whatever I haven't paid attention to his name cause he ain't OG :p 
    That was really about it. Honestly though, the earthrise figures are gorgeous as hell and I REALLY wanted to grab them, but I'm also just sentimental on my old Generations figures and would hate to have to put them into a container so I can make room.

    Ironworks was a G1 Micromaster. Technically he is OG but I guess that depends on what year you consider G1 not to be OG. I would consider anything before G1 Action Masters OG for sure.

    You're right! I took a quick look back and I did own an Ironworks as a figure but not with the battle station think I took him from a friend or something as a little kid. I owned very very little of the Micromasters, I think cause at that time was when the toyline started to really decay.

    I went to the Killeen and Belton HEB Plus stores and it was just a big zip, just cyberverse stuff which I have zero interest on.

    Roundrock HEB Plus is cleaned out, still nothing in Belton or Killeen. Nothing any walmarts between Killeen and Belton. I did go back to Target in Harker Heights this morning and found still 2 Grapples and now just Ironworks. I picked up Grapple and got him open right away. I'm pleasantly surprised by how his transformation to vehicle mode is almost identical to what we had in the G1 figure. Pull the head/crane to the back, fold the feet level, tuck in the arms etc etc and you're done. I love it.

    thread hasnt moved in a while. hope everybody's doing ok.. i have been keeping hunting to a minimum. I went out today just of shear boredom. hardly anyone in the stores. many places closed. kinda creepy. hopefully we'll get back to normal real soon.

    as for sightings the only thing new I saw in my neighborhood today was earthrise micromasters at far west target. yippee.

    edit: HEB at Westheimer & Kirkwood has full wave of Earthrise deluxe.

    Yeah, same here. I hit a few Targets and Walmarts locally, but nothing new as far as ER and SS. I've been ordering off Hasbro Pulse and Amazon instead.

    Please don't put yourselves or others at risk for Toys. Just go out for essentials only.
