    I've been looking for this figure for two days and 7 targets (4 of those I was actually there when they were putting the toys out and nothing) and haven't even got a wiff of this guy. Even more worrysome, most of the stores had the endcap display with a red sign advertising the combiner, now they've taken them out (the combiner signs not the endcaps); WTF?
    I thought that since this was a Target exclusive it was going to be easier to find, this is bringing very bad memories of the hunt for Walmart's MP Starscream.
    What are your thoughts guys?
    Thanks for your time.

    I haven't looked for it, but then again I haven't seen it either.
    Just give it some time. Target exclusives seem to either trickle or flood. I remember looking high and low for DS Starscream, only to see it on clearance a month after I bought it.

    ^$30.

    Where do you live? Chances are they have an asston in the back and they just haven't bothered stocking it. The Targets around here all have it, whether it's displayed or not. One of my Targets doesn't have a display for it, but punching in the DPCI shows that they have them readily available in the back.

    Yeah, when I give them the DCPI# they don't show any in any of the stores in the city.
    So I thought that the Target exclusives were available all at once in all the stores, I guess they just haven't reached this city yet. I'll keep my eyes peeled. It's actually good to hear that they trickle too ( like at some other retailers), that way I still have hope of finding him.
    One more question, with the exclusives, do ALL the stores always get the exclusives?.
    Thanks guys, I was afraid I'd miss him.

    Not sure if that's the correct DCPI number or not, but it's the one I gave the person to my local Target who had none out for display nor any in the back from that DCPI number. Really trying to find this guy too :(

    087-06-0146.

    I've only encountered one Target that actually has them out for sale and that's because I talked to one of the people on Saturday and had them bring one out for me and the guy just brought 3 cases and stocked the endcap. One Target I checked had them listed as in the stockroom one day (I didn't ask to have one pulled) and, the next morning, the scanners said they had none in stock...despite them not having an endcap or any empty space for them. I hate crying "scalpers!!!" whenever some toy isn't instantly on shelves everywhere in massive quantities, but this set is proving to be suspiciously hard to find.

    I was at several Targets this weekend and only saw them at one. The one I was at looked like they had quite a few 10+ so don't worry, I think they will be available to everyone who wants one.

    i was at targets in the lehigh valley (pa) fri night/sat and sunday. No signs of superion on the shelves or signs of space for him. Im guessing he isnt out here yet as to being scalped.

    There's plenty of Superions where I am...

    But I'm in Canada - and Superion costs $60CDN. What a ripoff. Oh well, I hope the upgrade kit makes him look good.

    I think Bruticus is supposed to come out later.

    hmm have yet to look for it, but the 2 targets that i've been too seem to not have them.

    and didn't target implement the whole "buy 3 only for figures" policy?

    We are swimming in Superions up here (Zellers, not Target). Maybe we got all of yours?

    I went to my nearest Target today and I gave them the DPCI number and a Target employee came out with a case of them and he opened it and took one out and gave it to me to purchase.
