    Where I live I have a Target about 4 miles from my apartment, so i am able to sneak over there about once a week to take a look at their toy aisle and hunt for figures.

    For the last month, the selection had been rather sad. They only had the Wave 1 DOTM figures and not much else.

    Then, about a week ago, I walked in to find workers rearranging to toy aisle, with figures being loaded into carts and pushed into the back. Unable to go searching, I decided to come back the next day and pick over what they had.

    Imagine my surprise when I returned to find that they had totally reset the toy aisle...and that included putting out the newest waves of every toy set they had.

    For Transformers, this included: The latest Generation Figures, including Warpath. The latest DOTM Deluxes, including Cyberfire Bee and Specialist Ratchet. Transformers Rescue Bots. Ultimate Prime. So on and so forth.

    Add into this other areas got refilled (including the Batman Legacy Figures for adult collectors, the new video game action figure line that includes Assassin's Creed, and others) and my wallet was alot lighter after I left.

    Has anyone else ever lucked out like this, walking into a toy section that has just been refilled/reset?

    Once a month in Japan Toysrus updates their whole display of Transformers to include the latest releases. For instance this Saturday will have everything that's been released so far, and the newer stuff.

    Target does their resets in August I think. I remember the 2007 August resets came with 6" Titaniums later waves like G1 Magnus.That's when I bought Rodmius and Magnus.
