    I'm thinking of picking up Premium Blackout and possibly Ironhide but havent had time to check out Target. Are the Voyagers out, and are they plentiful... as in not being scalped the minute they touch the shelves?

    They're out, but not too plentiful. Last I checked, we only got one Ironhide and one Blackout. Blackout went quickly, as his mold's always been popular. You might still be able to find Ironhide, with some luck. ^^

    I found both Premium Blackout and Ironhide at Wal-Mart a week ago. There was only one of each on the shelf though. So not sure if they're slowly trickling into my area or other buyers had been there ahead of me.

    I saw both Ironhide and Blackout the last time I was at Target, and there was at least two of each of them there.

    It wasn't in the city I live in, but I did see one Premium Ironhide at a Walmart in a city on my way heome from a trip last week. I'll probably check around today, even if I'm not buying any of the Premiums I'd still like to see how long they stay on shelves.

    Saw them at one Target this weekend out of a handful I visitied. Premium Optimus is going quickly but Megatron not so much. I think it's a mix of slowly trickling in and scalpers. Hard to tell if it's going to be another Incinerator incident where there were only a handful and three weeks later a storm.

    I saw them at a store they supposedly sold out at, meaning they were there twice.

    Ironhide looks overdone, IMO. Didn't even bother to look at Blackout other than "Oh, hey! It's the Premium Voyagers."

    I picked up Ironhide simply because I didn't own him yet (the one in my comic belongs to my younger sister). Probably grab a Bumblebee as well, but that's it for the Premiums. I don't have the room for any more alternative versions.

    I spotted Premium Blackout at Wal-Mart when I was picking up Offroad Ironhide. Not going to get him, since I already have the original.

    I spotted both Blackout and Ironhide at my local Walmart back on Friday night. They're gone now, though.

    None of the premiums are around here yet. I'm looking for Megatron.

    I was able to get me Megatron a few days ago and he looks badass.
