    If anyone near (30 ish minutes) Madison/Middleton is looking for a skorponok, I’ll sell you mine for $150 if we do a local pickup. He’s cool, but I don’t really have a spot for it in my collection.

    also if anyone’s looking for an mpm megatron, I’ll let that go for $90

    target west had 1 rung and restocked wave 1 earthrise.

    Target Hilldale has one Cyberverse Seeker set, one Sky Lynx, and a bunch of the Cyberverse Battle Call wave with Wildwheel.

    Target Fitchburg has the Wildwheel wave, four Rungs, four of the Cyberverse Repugnus set, and one Snapdragon (which I bought).

    Two Snapdragons at Stoughton Walmart. Took one.

    Edit: well, the one I picked was missing a foot, so I’m going to try to go back and exchange it for the other one tomorrow. I hope nobody takes it.

    So, to reiterate my edit above: the Snapdragon I got in Stoughton was missing a foot:
    AC4D6F94-56BE-4A6E-8FB6-94054C6F52A4.jpeg
    I just got back there for a successful exchange, and I noticed that the foot wasn’t even the only obvious defect. Here’s the one I have now:

    Spot the difference!
    Sadly, this means they have no more Snapdragons.

    Not TF-related, but has anyone seen any sign of the Neca movie Ninja Turtles 2-packs at Walmarts around Milwaukee? Knowing Walmart, I'm guessing those are gonna be rare... at best.

    Anyone know of any other Earthrise seeker 2 packs in the Oshkosh/Fox valley area? I won't be getting down to Madison until Friday evening, so I doubt they will still be there...

    Bummer. I may be forced to feed the scalpers this time. I doubt Target would hold an item for me for 2 days.

    Says here, they'll hold a store pickup order for 3 days, and you can extend that:
    Order Pickup : Target

    Saw the two wave 2 Earthrise Micromaster 2-packs at Sun Prairie Target. Left ‘em there. Note that those are the space shuttle guys there behind the race car guys.

    I found my own space shuttle guys and race car guys at Madison West and Sun Prairie, respectively. There were no other new Micromasters at any other Madison area Target.

    I’m still on the lookout for the Earthrise repack of the blue long gun truck combiner team guys.
