    Lol. Way to keep you prices straight, Target.


    If I can find these guys before my BBTS order is filled, I guess I'll save a nice amount.

    They're not even out around here at all. Kmart had the 3 inchers for one day and they were gone.

    Saw them with a $4.99 tag in front of them at my local Target, but they still rung up at $14.99. If target does things like how they do them at the store I work for, the shelftags are generated from a different database than what the cash registers pull from.

    One of Madison's Targets had them at the $4.99 price today. But it wasn't the case when I went Saturday.

    nope, I just posted this under sighting here at NC. It was crazy, I bought them for 4.99! what a loss for target, but it felt good to save some money. It rang up 4.99 at the register too. And the regular ones were being listed at 14.99 on the racks!!! (they didn't have any though)

    I was fortunate enough to pick up an Optimus Prime today for 4.99 at Target. It beats paying 14.99 for it. Get them while you can because the price will be fixed very soon. I just wish Jetfire was in the first wave so I could have got him for $4.99 also.

    The planogram is screwed up. They put the 6" on the pegs, and the 3" on the shelf, but both should still ring up at their normal prices. They did at my store at least. Also according to the planogram team at my store they shouldn't even be on the shelf until it gets fixed with a revision. Not that that'll really stop anyone of course.

    I got my Prime for the 4.99 price. I should have snagged a Megatron to return to TRU.

    When I showed up at work today a coworker had picked up the 6" Optimus Prime over the weekend.

    So now I have an Optimus and a Megatron... sweet.

    I also have the 3" Optimus (WWI), Unicron, and Starscream. Haven't really been wowed enough to pick up any more.

    I guess it's off to Target tomorrow. BBTS already has mine sitting in my pile of loot, but I'll take another Prime at $4.99.

    $4.99 in CT as well. I feel kinda bad about taking advantage of Target, but on the other hand I'd probably have returned them if I'd paid $14.99. Prime's good and certainly worth $10, but neither is worth $15. Megatron is barely worth $5.

    I suspect Megs was the first Titanium they designed. Prime is a huge improvement, but the tolerences still suck.

    I don't really have any interest in either Prime or Megatron... but if I found em for $4.99? Hell yeah, I'd buy em both.

    As of today, Target has not issued a price revision and I didn't see anything about it on the company intra-net boards, so anyone reading this as of Wednesday should still try their local Target. We set our planogram today and I was shocked, but that didn't stop me from grabbing two out of the box and buying them for $5 each on my next break.
