    I had a thread like this long ago, but forgot the most crucial part. A poll. Well, here it is.

    What is the best store for exclusives? I'd say Target. It gave us HA Leadfoot, Space Case, and those neat RoTF repaints of Voyager Ratchet and Starscream.

    But what is yours?

    Toysrus has been a winner lately since they've gotten the mp's the last couple years, but because they fiddle with prices so much, my vote goes to Target. They get some great exclusives and never attempt to make an extra Buck with them.

    Target. They get good distribution, they don't overprice them or over-order them (like walmart and their walls of deluxe primes).

    I've never had any touble getting target exclusives, and I love the ones I have. ROTF Superion and Bruticus, HA Leadfoot (after mods), Universe Constructicons, universe Nemesis Prime, white Leo Prime...

    Well personally, I've had the best experience with TRU, always manage to get their exclusives in store when I visit, but whenever it's a Walmart or Target exclusive, it always seems to be understocked, had to get mine through secondary sources.

    I chose Target. There are easy to find, they usually get a good selection and then when they clearance them I can pick up extras. TRU exclusives are too hit or miss at finding them and Walmart is a mess. We don't have any Kmarts in Texas.

    Exactly right on in my opinion.

    I had to order 'Track Battle Roadbuster' b/c no Walmarts I ever went into had any for sale.

    I went with Target for similar reasons as above. Reasonable prices and good distribution.

    TRU simply because they're the only ones that get exclusives I actually want anything to do with.

    MPs edge out anything else in terms of exclusives, so TRU.

    While TRU has received MP's here of late I voted for Target on the basis that Target has had great distribution IMO and I haven't seen an MP at TRU in my area well ever...

    Whoops, did not mean to vote for Walmart.

    TRU has the best exclusives, but Walmart/Target are far better with supplying their own relative exclusives.
