my kid works near a Walmart and there's a target a few blocks away from there,so I get to check often :)

There also may be fewer TF collectors down here than in the cities, too. I checked targets inventory of voyagers 22 hours ago and found they had gone from 0 to 8. I didn't get out here to check until just now and found 7 on shelves. If it were a collector there's a good chance they would have taken one of each (now that I type this out I reckon a collector might skip Octone due to having one of the 2 OP premolds)

Hey, while I was out and about, I found PotP Deluxes at the Target in Lino Lakes and Blaine on Hwy 65.

Also, about a week ago I picked up the Clone 2 pack at Walgreens in Lino Lakes (Lake and 35W.)

And that reminds me. I don't think I mentioned yet that my family moved. I am no longer on the West Side of the Twin Cities. I'm now north of the Cities, right between the 35s up in Lino Lakes.

Okay, you are away from me now. That's sad. :(

Kidding. How many boxes did you have for your toys? :lol:

Anyway, few weeks ago I went to Minnetonka Target and use my DPCI finder to force them to open the box for me in the back. So I got Swoop and Beachcomber. They claimed they only have Swoop. Although I don't believe them but still let it go. A week later I went back again, because they opened, they had the first waves on the shelves. Happily got Slag and Dreadwind. Now I'm set for wave one. Waiting for wave 2 to get Snarl, Sludge, and Blackwing.

How's everyone doing? Anyone looking for something I should keep my eyes out for? Wave 1 is pretty available in the SW Metro area (as is Classic Style Voltron if you want). I'm anxious for Wave 2 to hit MN now that some stuff has been sighted around the US. Need Snarl to sit with the original from my childhood. :-D

Heh, Legendary Voltron (the Netflix version) is clearancing at some of the Targets on the north side...

Lots of Wave 1 PotP. So sign of last wave of TR. Movie stuff on clearance. Lots and lots of Star Wars stuff left on the shelf, even with much of it clearanced. I feel bad for toy makers right now, in particular, related to movies. They seen to not understand how to merchandise. Maybe Lucas needs to come back...

Please, no. :lol:

I gave up on finding last wave of TR which I really want Slugslinger. He is pretty much sold out online too. Finally got it from evilBay. :-( Again, a very decent figure and now I can finally form that fictional jet together with Misfire and Triggerhappy. :D

Yes, I hope PotP wave 2 will hit soon. I want those Dinobots.

Found that weird simplified Transformer line Shockwave at Walgreens in Blaine. They are in the wild!

It's a'rite. The transformation leaves a lot to be desired, but it's a decent Shocky stand-in. A little on the pricey side. I cannot believe I bought two from this line...

St. Louis Park Target (169/7) has both Snarl and Sludge. Now I've completed my Dinobots.

Seems like Ripplesnapper is a shelfwarmer now. Still need Blackwing and Moonracer.

Knollwood Target had Sludge so I'm all caught up on Dinos and reliving my childhood!

Still in search of Hun-gurrr though....

Same does Plymouth Target. Saw all deluxe, voyager, and leader class Studio Serious figures.

Hun-Gurrr can be found at Walmart. I've seen quite a few of them there.
