    Would really like an Earthrise Bluestreak. Willing to cover costs and pay shipping if anyone can help me up.

    Saw a random Siege Springer at West Target tonight, lol. Maybe someone found an extra behind a shelf somewhere. Also, the only deluxes they had in stock across both the WFC and Studio Series lines was one lonely Ironworks... a sad scene.

    I seen that also. I hope some idiot isn't resorting to buying them from Ross and returning them to Target. That's retail fraud/shoplifting. Other than that There are several Sky Lynx around if anyone is looking to use their 25% off one toy coupon from Target Circle.

    Saw a Siege Starscream & Siege Sideswipe tonight at Fitchburg Target. Are we thinking someone could be buying them up from Ross, and returning them to Targets to try and make a profit? Or are these just some slightly older figures in stock they're trying to push out? I've been hitting up the west side Ross every other day or so for the past week trying to find MPM Megatron, and haven't seen any new Siege figures popping up at all, where as they definitely seemed to be more abundant in the past. Wonder if the potential Target reselling has anything to do with that?

    Speaking of MPM Megatron, if any of you all find one/an extra at Ross, let me know! I'd definitely be interested in paying the $40 + finder's fee, etc.

    If anyone sees an Astrotrain in the greater Milwaukee area please let me know.

    Sorry this is late, but I just joined and they may have a similar promotion again. Target had some Earthrise figures at 10% off. Then there is a BOGO 50% off offer that was Friday and Saturday only. The offers combined so I grabbed both Wheeljack and Cliffjumper for about $13 and change each. Figure I'll see them at Ross some day (don't buy the idea that what we're seeing now is a fluke) but I also thought that wasn't a bad deal.

    I've been hitting some Ross stores in the area in the last week. Grabbed Ultra Magnus, Starscream, Springer and Cog. Still hoping to find a Hound and Astrotrain. Still plenty of Starscreams out there if anyone is looking for him.

    Took a trip to the Oak Creek IKEA over the weekend and decided to stop by a nearby hobby shop - glad I did, because I ended up finding these three! Quite the blast from the past. Armada was my introduction to TF as a kid, so I was very happy to pick these up. :)

    Very nice finds! What’s the name of the store? I’d love to check it out next time I’m in that area.

    The place was called 'Adventure Games Plus Hobbies' in Waukesha. Pretty cool little place, seemed mainly focused on tabletop gaming, but they had a few random TFs. There were 3-4 from RID and 1 from Beast Wars in package, along with an assortment of loose (likely G1/G2) figures.

    Two Trailbreakers and Fasttrack at Madison West Target. looks like WFC dlx has one peg so the other four might be in the back.

    Hit a few Ross stores in the Milwaukee area today. New War for Cyberton figures were in stock at multiple locations. I was surprised to see them too because they were Earthrise Astrotrain and Earthrise Prime. Both were $29.99.

    Thank you!

    Got one of the Trailbreakers. G1 version was a childhood favorite and this one is a nice homage. Especially love the alt-mode.

    Made a couple of quick stops today.

    Ross in Menomonee Falls is dry. Only Cyberverse Sharkticons.

    Walmart in Brookfield (off of south Moorland) had a fair amount of the Netflix Deluxe Class. They were on rollback, but I forget how much. I have $17 in my head.

    Walgreen’s has 25% off the Deluxe Transformers so if you can find a Bluestreak this week it’s only $14.99.

    Do you need a coupon or they're just that price?
