    Still no Combaticons at Forest Hill Target, but some of the new wave of Black Series 6" figures were there, including the new variants of Kylo Ren and Rey.

    Are they variants somehow? What was changed, if I may ask?

    Yes, they are variants...

    Kylo has a smaller cape and a textured scarf
    Ren has better makeup, better eye brows and lips
    BB-8 has a better black wash
    The trooper (good guy) has a different color helmet
    Tie fighter Pilot, no differences.

    (I'm not a star wars guy, so forgive me for the lack of names)

    Just curious. I've seen Rey a few times and skipped it because of the awful head sculpt and the weird distant stare.

    Rey looked quite nice. Everything about the face has been improved: hairline, eyebrows, eyes, makeup, lips. It's a huge improvement. BB-8 looks better too. Both the head and body have a black-wash now, whereas only the head had it before.

    Nothing exciting at TRU Manassas as of last night. They had maybe 2 or 3 sets of the Autobot limbs, 4 or 5 Menasors, and I think one MP Streak.

    For those of you who haven't been keeping up to date with the NOVA meetup thread, we're having a meetup on Saturday at noon at the Fairfax Bon Chon.

    I'll be bringing a few Fans Toys protos like Stomp (Sludge), Mercenary (Shrapnel), and Spotter (Reflector).

    Lynnhaven Princess Anne super Walmart has the combaticon deluxes, in the action figure aisle but the opposite side of where they'd usually be, they're next to the wrestling figures. 1 of each I think with 2 Swindles, I didn't buy any.

    That is a killer find!
    I haven't heard of Devy appearing in-store at Target at all so I'm guessing this one was an online purchase that got returned to the local store. When that happens at Target, the item is often put on immediate clearance and shelved since they don't have a designated space for it and they want it to go ASAP.

    And the $45 Devastator is gone. Should've pulled the trigger earlier.

    The box's corners were a bit tattered, probably during shipping, so you're probably right about the online purchase.

    Faaaaaail! We were there until 3, too. You should also just subscribe to the meetup thread. We had 10 people, and we all brought some cool stuff. It was good times!

    Any hotspots still around in the richmond area? I tried to fix the internal hip ratchets on mine and one of the ratchet mechanism bits flew off into the unknown, so I either need to perform the miracle of finding it, or get a new Hot spot.

    Check Walmarts. I know the Short Pump Walmart had a ton of them for a long time. I am not sure if they still do or if they only have Cyclonus left, but that's where I would start.

    I know the Parham Road Walmart does not have any though. I was just there the other day.
