    Hey gang! It's been a while! It pains me to say it, but the next step of phasing out non-MPs has arrived. As such, I've got a small selection I'm putting up for sale, and as is my custom, the Texas boards get first dibs (and the freedom to make offers before I set prices).
    Nothing super fancy, but if you're interested, just PM me.

    Studio Series
    Leader:
    Jetfire
    Grimlock
    Voyager :
    Optimus Prime (32? The one that combines with Jetfire)
    Deluxe:
    Drift (helicopter)
    Bumblebee (classic Camaro)
    Jazz
    Roadbuster

    Other
    AoE Voyager Scorn (second run)
    AoE Voyager Hound (second run)
    AoE Slug (second run)
    RotF Sideswipe

    That's it for now. I thunk I have a few more packed away, but I'll revisit that later.
    All are loose, complete, include instructions, and I can provide pics as requested. If you're interested in multiple items, I'll take that into consideration with pricing and shipping.

    Thanks, y'all! Good to be back.

    Having such a hard time finding him, but I got everyone else in 1 go. Tons of the other 5 at the 5501 Hwy 6 Walmart. The cards are slightly bent on most but that's not a big deal for me. I think someone who stocks the shelves at one of my Walmarts picked Boba Fetts all out before putting the rest in the aisle. That or I got a lightning fast scalper out here. The hunt continues!

    Oh, Transformers-related question: does anyone else exclusively encounter Netflix Chromias and Hounds with no Scrapface in site? Might just want to get one because of the cool paintjob, but I have only seen 1 in the past 30 or so days.

    My local Walmart when I run up there usually only has the same with an odd Sideswipe mixed in. A couple weeks back I did happen to find 1 Mirage and Scrapface but that has been the only time.

    I went to Harker Heights this morning first to Target, they didn't have much in terms of new releases except 1 Earthrise Optimus, 3 Hoists, 2 Starscreams, no two packs, was not interested in looking for me either. Then proceeded to Walmart across the freeway where they had the majority of Wave 1 Earthrise figures, Netflix Versions of all but Magnus....I scored one of the Hotlink figures so I guess that's my Skywarp now.

    Seems like there was a restock this weekend. Might want to give a few stores a try.

    Scrapface is only one per case right? I expect that's the main issue.

    There was a restock in some Walmarts. I saw one today among a sea of Hounds/Sideswipes/Chromias but Scrapface isn't a priority and I'm sure another local collector would want it. Pretty sure it was the 9929 Hwy 6 Walmart. Regardless, the Netflix exclusives are around in good quantities. Seeing lots of Megatrons and Hotlinks too.

    Looks like the Target Seeker 2 pack is hitting El Paso. For anyone out that direction. It keeps getting closer. So hopefully the Houston and DFW areas soon.

    Midlothian Walmart has the five deluxe War for Cybertron figures, Voyager Megatron pack but did not see Hotlink. They did have Earthrise Starscream and Grapple. No leaders. Still some Soundblasters.

    any sightings of the Target Seekers besides El Paso?

    4 of their stores showed in stock at the beginning of the week. 2 of the stores still show in stock as of right now.

    Not yet. I have been checking the Target site two or three times a day. I've seen it get a little (another state for me in Dallas) but the past two days the stock has been shrinking. I expect the big push should happen this upcoming week starting Sunday. That is the schedule for the reset. Once we see Houston sightings that is usually when we can expect other parts of the state to really be soon.
