    You will see a lot less posting now since I had to get two full time jobs to catch up especially with gas getting higher and higher I can’t afford to visit my friends who live around those stores.

    I can’t even order figures at a good discount anymore. I basically have go buy all my cases at retail value now as shown in the pic of Venom. Now, I already have $15,000 in orders for the next year with a 20% cancellation fee, how am I supposed to win this fight? This is a whole different endgame.

    Ebay:
    Yes, distribution is probably the worst I've ever seen and costs are almost at the point where I'm ready to throw in the towel. The biggest issue people seem to be having right now is getting the exclusives. In particular, the ones at Target. They sell out online within minutes and then when stores finally get them in, someone comes along and cleans them out and sells them at a toy show or on eBay. You may not be doing it, but it seems to be happening more with the increased demand for collectibles during Covid. Anyway, that's all I have to say on it.

    Also as it pertains to figures: you can order a standard case of mixed figures or you can order a full case of wreck gar. I have orders 2 full cases of wreck gar due at the end of September which is a total 6 figures.

    Empty shelf spots for Commander and Titan class at Madison west Target. Checked West, Fitchburg, Hilldale, and Walmart west and south. Got nothin’.

    My buddy Sean found them both last night at a Target in Gurnee, Illinois.

    Checked the Germantown Wal-Mart on Friday since it showed still one Rodimus left but someone must have grabbed it. But, they did have the R.E.D. Screamer and Bee....(insert sarcastic voice here).

    Anybody still hunting for Galvatron? I saw 2 at the Kossow Rd Target and at least 1 at the National/Hwy 100 Target. Didn’t look too close but assuming fixed shoulders.

    There’s a Galvatron at the Madison East Target. Wrong shoulder assembly, otherwise I would’ve grabbed him.

    Just need to vent. Fed Ex has my Rodimus from Game Stop. First they said it'd be here on Monday, then Sunday; then back to Monday; now they don't know when it's coming. I know it takes a time, but I have to learn not to get my hopes up.
