Thrilling 30 deluxe!! :KREMZEEK:

Brooklyn Park Target has two OP, two Megatron, two Trailbreaker (bought one, one left), and one Bee. They all looked pretty good but I'm only interesting in Trailbreaker. The yellow plastic on Bee looks kind of cheap, though.

No Thrilling 30 at the Plymouth Target (Rockford Road and 494) last night, but a load of new Beast Hunter and Constructobot stuff. I don't like the Constructobots myself, but my son might like it. He loves Transformers and Legos/Kreos.

Beast Hunter Legends and Legion Commander (or whatever they are calling it) 2 packs are there with weird painted Optimus/Predaking and I think an Abominus pred and Prowl? I wasn't interested in those.

What I was interested in was the Abominus gift pack. Image I guess $24 for the 5 bots is not bad.

Oh, and there was some new deluxes like Skylinx, a Voyager Predacon repaint I didn't recognize, big @$$ Optimus and Predaking and some non-transforming stuff too.

Target was completely reorganizing the Toy Department. I wonder why the Thrilling 30 Deluxes were not out... :-?

[Edit] Oh, and Paul and I discovered in the 3rd party Hexatron thread that we work very close to each other on the NW side of the cities. Anyone else interested in a Seibertron mini-con-lunch-gottafindabettertitle some time?
I once read that self deprecating humor is a sign of intelligence.
So, I started making fun of myself like crazy...

Sweet news on Abominus/Terrorcon gift back and the repaint to Skylynx! I've been waiting for those!

And it sounds like my Metroplex (early bday present) might come today as well! Yes!

They do that on purpose? :-? I got Sandstorm at Plymouth Target but Brooklyn Park had none. I saw many Thrilling 30 deluxe at Brooklyn Park but Plymouth Target had none. Now Plymouth Target has bunch of new BH stuffs but Brooklyn Park has none. Well, I will say coincident but still........ :-? Good thing these two Targets are both pretty close to me. And yeah, Target really is the go to place now. Few days ago went to Brooklyn Park Walmart and they really had nothing. I even totally ignore TRU now.

Stopped by the toy store in Nickelodeon Universe and found IDW Hoist and thundercracker. When I was there I saw 3 Hoist and 2 or 3 thundercracker's. I left them all there in hopes of finding a metroplex. (And also they were $18 each)

An Asian guy walks in to a TRU (Maplewood) and the lady ask what may I help you look for today. He says you guys have any more MP Soundwave, she says no but we do have that two of those 2 foot transformers and about four of the Plantiums one. Than the Asian guy looked around and walked out with one of each. 1 more Mp Acidstorm too.

Couldn't agree more. I'm putting the stickers on him now and some are tricky to get on.

Scored MP Soundwave at the TRU in Burnsville today! They had about 5 MP Acid Storms left.

About 30 seconds after I grabbed him a fella came down the isle and went straight to the MPs. Looked kinda disappointed (?), but grabbed Acid Storm. I felt kinda bad, but I want him too and I got there first (barely)...

MP Soundwave had a price sticker out in the TRU off American Boulevard in Bloomington a couple days ago. But I checked back today and the sticker is completely gone. Really was hoping there wasn't scalpers up here too, but I guess its unavoidable. :/

Unfortunately, I believe we have one in the Duluth area as well. On a lighter note, I found Trailcutter at the Hermantown Walmart today.

Haven't done any sighting for a while. Plymouth Target has FoC Blaster if you missed the first release. There is a Springer as well. Thrilling 30 deluxe are also back. There I saw Hoist, Megatron, and Orion. Also few new BH deluxe I think. Have $10 Target gift card that can use on TF but I still don't know which one I want...... Maybe wait until they have Skids.

Wow, since the site server stuff I haven't gotten a notification from this thread. A lot went on. Fortunately, I wasn't too much in the hunt until today.

I was at the Brooklyn Park Target, Plymouth Target, and Brooklyn Park Walmart. Maybe it's Xmas stuff coming out, but I saw a few gems. My first sightings of legends Air Vehicon happened at the BP Target. I picked up Legion commander Shockwave at the Plymouth Target. And finally, I saw one I don't remember seeing coming out, Beast Hunters Huffer (Legion Commander.) Also of note is that it appears the rest of the Abominus singles are now out in the wild, in case you haven't completed the set or didn't buy the Target exclusive.

I think I'm done for a while now. I don't think I'm going to get any of the Prime stuff any more. There's a few Generations figs, but I'm going with BBTS on those as I don't have time for much hunting anymore being in school for my Masters and getting a promotion. (More work to do. Woot!)

I'll also agree with the consensus: while not perfect, Metroplex is pretty awesome. I have YotD Omega Supreme in Cruiser mode sitting on Metroplex's deck. Looks cool!

Went to Elk River for work related stuffs and stopped at the new super Target. Found new deluxes: Skids, Dreadwing, Waspinator, and ugly golden/muddy Bee. 2 each and they are only $9.99 each. :ic$: I only got Dreadwing since don't really care about others. Well, do care about the Skids but his terrible shoulder problem and kind-of-a-mess body let me decide to pass him.

Just checking in to say I haven't seen much in the SW metro lately. I'm hoping to find Double Dealer, Cosmos, and maybe Rinox at some point though...

Plymouth Super Target has Generations deluxe Armada Starscream, Skywarp, Minicons, and Hoop. Two each I think. Also the huge Predaking is on clearance at $27.48.

From Duluth Target, I picked up Megatron w/chop shop, Starscream w/Waspinator, and since it was on clearance for 9 dollars, the Constructbots Optimus Prime vs Megatron.
