    Any other places in San Antonio that still have kingdom or SS86 figures?
    Just drove out yesterday to those places mentioned in the afternoon I guess I was just shy of them putting them out on the shelves. Don’t want to have to backtrack if I don’t need too. Any help would be appreciated.

    they're just now starting to hit the stores nationwide. i've had no problems getting the regular Siege or ER figures for below retail price.

    since they're not exclusives, i'm waiting for the next sale to get them, either the $10 off $50 or $25 off $100 or BOGO 50%

    Thinking I might try going to the Target on Grand Parkway to do a return. Hoping to find some new Kingdom and 86 Transformers and possibly the new Into the Spider-Verse Marvel Legends wave. Kingdom I would like to find Optimus Primal, Megatron, Cheetor, Paleotrex, Rattrap and 86 I would hope to find Hot Rod cause I guess Grimlock has not been seen yet although that would be a nice find too. Kind of makes me wonder if Hasbro is doing a test run by sending certain Targets shipments of the Kingdom and 86 figures to see which ones will sell the most so they then know which figures to make more of when they are released at places like Amazon and other online stores. Anyways just a theory. Hope everyone had a happy New Years. Here's to hoping 2021 is better than 2020.

    Walmart will likely get the leader grimlock first... after the reset in a week or so. It seems to be the pattern. But who Knows

    There's been a shortage of truck drivers, partly due to COVID and partly due to wage dispute and also the holiday rush. Distribution will be slow, but pretty sure Hasbro has produced thousands.

    Just checked Target stock on Thrust in Austin this morning. A lot of them were showing limited stock, when they were showing out of stock last night. I stopped by the Four Points location and they didn't have any out. I saw a store associate restocking the toy section and asked if they had Thrust, showing him the DCPI. He looked it up and I *think* he said they had 10(it was through a mask, but I think he said that). He offered to check for me and came back with one for me. Super friendly guy! For a long shot, I asked if he could check the DCPI for SS86 Jazz, but that was still 0.

    On the shelves they did have Kingdom Legends(?) size. So Optimus, Vertabreak and Rattrap. Looked like maybe 3 of each(not sure of the actual packing assortment numbers)?

    So happy to final get a hold of Thrust!

    Happy hunting!

    Anyone know the Dpci for the ROTF Bumblebee from the buzzworthy series? Or is it the same as regular studio series?

    Got Kingdom core class wave 1 and Cyberverse deluxes at the Target on 249/Jones. Still 2 sets when I left around 9am. Saw the Cyberverse deluxes also at the Tomball Target off 2920, the Walmart on Kuykendahl/2920, and the Target off Kuykendahl/99.

    Saw lots of the Jada Nano G1 TF and GI Joe vehicles, retro Ghostbusters figures, and retro GI Joe AWE Strikers and HISS Tanks at Walmarts in the Tomball/Spring area this morning.
