    Chicago is where FedEx packages like to sit for a few days. My Slag and Sharkticons were supposed to be here Sunday and are arriving at this very moment. I had a FedEx package from The Chosen Prime get delayed for 3 days because of Chicago. It gets there quick, sits for 2 or 3 days and then gets moving again. Probably just a big FedEx hub there where the volume is just exceeding the workers due to COVID and/or other factors.

    My last two Pulse deliveries were both delayed 5 days while FedEx had them sitting in a random spot doing nothing for a while. It gets picked up, they estimate Thursday, nothing happens all weekend, it shows up Tuesday. Twice.

    I know it's First World problems. Could be a lot worse.

    Appleton Target West was stocked with 8 T-Wrecks (not the head on the back of the box) and 4 Kingdom Manus. They are mostly on an end cap away from the normal section.

    I know @Jacer and myself have had several FedEx delays, my brother too. I've been ridiculously busy at work, so it's not the end of the world, but it's definitely a bummer.

    Well, I FedEX delivered my Rodimus yesterday. Really like him, though the upper body transformation can be slightly annoying. Now, I can start whining about how long my Magic Square Ultra Magnus and Mech Toys Grimlock are taking to get here. ;)

    Targets in Milwaukee had old Galvs 2 weeks ago. It was hit and miss with the shoulders. I managed to find 2 in separate locations.

    Found 4 Sweeps at Lake Geneva Walmart. Grabbed 2, there are 2 Sweeps and a Wreck-Gar left.

    They have tons of Tracks and Wingfinger and a couple Scorponok stashed on the top shelf.

    I also grabbed the only Cyberverse Deluxe Cheetor they had. Of note he rang up for $13.96 at the register. Headmasters also on clearance for $15, they had a Brainstorm and Chromedome.

    Has anyone seen the Buzzworthy Bumblebee pack with Fangry lately? I've been checking target.com every day since the listing went up on the site, and there hasn't been anything. I know it hasn't been available for shipping, but it just says it's not available in any stores at all. I've been switching zip codes, so I've basically been checking almost every store in the state, and popfindr never shows anything either. I'm basically just curious if the target site might be wrong, I've been trying to find it so I can make some leg shim/fillers for Fangry, and I see people on Twitter still finding the pack in other states, so I thought it might be unlikely that every store in the state hasn't had a restock since they initially sold out.

    Just grabbed the last Tracks, Scorponok, and Wingfinger at the Sun Prairie Wal Mart. No Wreck-Gar, but they did have a few Sweeps, a Jolt, and a Bumblebee.
