    Thanks Wingblade, I snagged a POTP Screamer and the pretenders. No Grimlock there though. Still a bunch of Prime Masters a Starscream, all the POTP deluxes.

    OFF TOPIC

    Anyone seen Playmates Classic Voltron around?

    Thanks to Brickseek and some helpful staff at the New Britain target.

    PoTP leaders. They are at the Manchester and Waterford Targets according to BrickSeek. But the staff in Manchester refused to look in the back.

    So- if Brickseek says "Limited Stock", then do I have to ask the people to pull it from the back, or is it on the shelves?

    Could be both. But in this case, until the stores reset their shelves, there is not space for PoTP Leader Class at Target (or any PoTP). So you have to ask a clerk. On Brickseek there is an option to show the BARscan code. Do that, saves so much time. MOST times you will get denied because the case is in "limbo" or the transition area which means its not scanned into a bay, a clerk has to go look through the whole transition area for the case.

    Hope this helps someone.

    If it's Waterbury Target, forget it. They showed the PoTP leaders in stock, but they wouldn't sell them to me, claiming that Transition bullshit, again.

    Few Target store clerks mentioned that Generations POTP toys are supposed to be put on Target store shelves on 1/7. Lucky, I was able to ask few clerks to pull most Generations POTP wave one toys from back room.

    I was able to get Leader Optimus pulled from Torrington Target's backroom today. I was surprised to get him, because like chuckcjc said, cases go into limbo right around reset time. I'm unsure about Rodimus, so I did not buy him. It kind of sucks that Target gets two pieces for their reset.

    I hear you. And even after I found my Orion Paximus, it was broken. Had to return it. That hurt.

    Finally stumbled on POTP Rodimus at the North Haven Walmart. Wave 1 deluxes on the pegs, that's it.

    Target in Orange has deluxes as well.
