    Brickseek shows limited stock for a bunch of stores for PotP Leaders and Voyagers. I tried stopping by my local Target, but the guy said they probably didn't have them. I heard Target may have a reset on the 7th, so I'll probably go by sometime after that.

    I tried a couple and talk to a couple different employees. If you go in saying that you talk to someone on the phone yesterday and they said that they had it in stock but didn't have room on the shelf and then you could go talk to someone and have it pulled forward they'll be a lot more willing to do so.

    I'm surprised Brickseek actually works for you guys. As an experiment, I put in the UPCs for Blitzwing and Octane, knowing first-hand that they are in stock at my local Walmarts. Brickseek shows Out of Stock on all counts and always has with other codes.

    The Target @ Arapahoe & Parker is still picked over. Nothing of any note to report, although I did see someone else there that briefly checked the TFs and seemed just as disappointed as myself.
    I might check the WMs this week, but I hadn't seen anything at either of them in the past month or more.

    Nothing at the Thornton or north Westy Target.

    I talked to an employee at Wal-Mart and they said there reset is in 2 weeks.

    Not I. Him, Grotusque, and the Siege on Cybertron set are still eluding me.

    Nope. I managed to snag him when he went up on HTS and combine shipping with some POTP stuff. Otherwise I never would have seen him. In waves past it seemed like it was the Voyagers that were hurt by end of the line shipping (Sky Lynx, Thrilling 30 Brainstorm) - this time it's multiple sizes and even waves. :(

    Stopped by Longmont Target this morning. Looked like they had started their reset. Will be heading back afterwork to see what sorta progress has been made. Should definitely be done by Monday, I'd imagine, and probably sooner?

    So I'd imagine other Targets in the area are starting their resets this weekend as well - hopefully we'll all have shiny new POTP figures to grab on Monday morning. :)

    The Greeley Wal-Mart on 47th and 10th has TLK Leader Megatron on clearance for $35.00. They also have 4 Overlords and 1 Sixshot, but I couldn't get the scanner at the end of the aisle to work. So I don't know what they're going for. There's also 1 Sulgslinger.

    My local Target still hasn't reset, but the guy there said that the Fort Collins Target, off of Harmony, was showing stock. So I went there and found 2 each of Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime. I took one each with me. They also had Legends and Prime Masters, but no Voyagers or Deluxes. The guy at my local Target said they weren't expecting another shipment soon, and from the sound of it the Targets I was trying at were only expecting 1 or 2 of each Leader and Voyager. So these guys may still be hard to come by for a while.

    The Fort Collins Target also had the Green Classic Lion for Voltron.

    They're pretty great and I really like the gimmick. The only thing I don't like are the stickers and I wish that Rodimus and Hot Rod's heads weren't just swivels. I love the way they look and they have a nice weight and size to them. The trailer stickers are the ones that bug me since they're on the edge.

    got to the county line target right in the middle of their reset today. nabbed slash, beachcomber, and grimlock. no prime masters or leaders, but everything else.

    also saw thermidor at the quebec/470 walmart, but passed on him because i hated how they ended up painting his mouth

    Target on Kipling reset. No leaders left and I got the only Starscream. A full case of Deluxes there though. The Target at CO Mills got halfway through their reset and stopped right before the Transformers aisle.

    I thought about stopping at the CO Mills Target before lunch, but decided to do it after. A guy walked out of the aisle with Grimlock as I was walking in. Grrr... They do have a Starscream and full pegs of Legends and mini-Pretenders though.
