    Man I’m pissed. They had these and Springer, but they wouldn’t sell me Springer until the 28th. I guess someone jumped the gun and placed them out way too early

    Its an erroneous street date. When Target set their preorder in stock date for Springer on 7/28 for target.com, they set it as the street date not the expected stock date

    Smashdown is mine when he gets to my area (or The Chosen Prime). I'm buying him as soon as he comes in stock.

    I'd hate to be on the receiving end of his wrath. Nobody's taunting the bull who turns into a hammer.
    Random Decepticon: "Red Bull gives you-
    *gets his arm smashed off*
    "-oh Primus, my ARM!"
    *Smashdown converts into robot mode and perches on his Autobot wielder's shoulder.*

    Smashdown: "Relax, man. Arms grow back."
    *turns to Autobot wielder next to him and whispers*
    "No they don't."

    Just go to Walmart! I got mine a couple weeks ago at my Walmart. I walked to the toy section, found it, put it in my buggy (southern slang for a Shopping Cart), went and got a few groceries, went to a self-checkout, paid, and walked out with Springer.

    I screwed up by only pre-ordering Smashdown and now I gotta go keep an eye out for my boy Caliburst so I can have as many Targetmasters as I can. Good find!

    I got Smashdown from Amazon because the pegs are flooded around here with wave 1 Battlemasters. Naturally that means now I'll see him on pegs, that's the way Murphy's Law works. It's a fun figure but not without its flaws, has 18 pegs for those blast effects plus 2 5mm holes, that's nuts for a figure so simple.

    I'm on the fence about Caliburst since they didn't redesign his weapon and limbs the way they did with Aimless, and his mushroom blast effect isn't my style, but I might cave when I see him in person due to the color change from the original, which Aimless missed the boat on. I'm still gonna wait for clearance on Aimless and Pteraxadon.

    Picked up two Calibursts in a Target in South Florida last night. Only saw Calibursts, no Smashdowns.
