    So, I got up this morning to get to Target when they opened. I wanted to make sure I got the transforming case. Lucky I decided to do so, as there were only about 6 left when I got there. Then, the guy behind me had 3 of the transforming set. He said the extra 2 were for friends of his, and I believe him. But, I'm pretty sure there are some scalpers already buying these up. Anyone else see this today?

    -Tony!

    EDIT: Thought I was posting this in TFGD. Can a mod please move? Thanks.
    EDIT 2: Wow...that was fast!

    I went to my target and they had plenty of both. I doubt scalpers will be an issue, since most people who want it that bad already ripped it from bootlegs.

    One of my friends works at Circuit City, he said that running out of the DVD is impossible.

    likewise, Target got in about 8 boxes of each movie version, with about 30-45 in a box.

    I was at Target around 8:30 and I overheard an employee say they only had 1 of the Transforming DVD left on the shelf. Around the corner I found a second shelf with a dozen or so...

    Even at that... he acted like the shelf had been full and was now near empty. Guess everyone likes that version.

    There were only 4 left at my local Target. Glad I got one.

    8 at opening and 6 left when I was leaving. Plenty of non-transforming versions with the comics though in multiple locations.

    My wife picked up mine. Sounded like there were plenty to pick from.
