    Target Perimeter has PotP Leader class, 2 in stock.

    Drove 30 Miles there. They told me they could get to it after 1PM. Came after 1PM. They said it was too much hassle but confirmed that they did have 2 in the back room. Ended up driving 120 miles in 2 round trips.

    Did everything I could to convince them to get them.

    DPCI: 087-06-6020.

    Be persistent. These folks, while I recognize are just doing their jobs, are stuck in a crappy company strategy of trying to empty half-bare shelves of clearance stock before putting out the new stuff. I’m convinced that many of us convincing them to sell the Deluxes and Legends out of the back triggered their system to order more and are the reason we ended up with side displays before Christmas.

    I’d wager if someone can get these sold (these two are the only case in Georgia at a Target, I’ve confirmed), it will trigger Target to move ahead with ordering more of them in their system.

    Most of them have them in the back. They are just too lazy to go find them. Got the same thing.

    Target employees are so much more helpful than Walmart ones

    Just got back from target in John’s creek. They pulled a rodimus prime from the back room. So they should still have an Optimus. Cumming target also has them, but gave me a hard time about pulling them from the stock room.

    I must say I’m glad I moved to GA. (For more than one reason) It’s definitely easier to get ahold of figures here. Unlike when I lived in jersey. Love the south!

    Last TF purchases of 2017 go to these beauties. Thrilled that I broke through the imperial blockade today to get them. I had to wait on Optimus until I have more funds.

    Not sure who here looks at Marvel Legends, but I’m on the lookout for the Iron Man from the new Black Panther wave. Brickseek shows that many Targets in the area have the wave in stock but every store I call says they don’t. I don’t know if they are selling through their entire stock within an hour of opening or not. Any confirmed sightings of the wave would be appreciated to help me gauge the reliability of Brickseek at the moment. I’ve had similar trouble with TFs as well lately.

    No they are holding them in the back same as the leaders for their reset on Jan 7 brickseek is fine. I was told that’s it’s not a good look to reset and have nothing on the shelves. Guess what, if I come thru and buy everything after you reset then they are still empty. Makes zero sense but whatever.

    Makes no sense to me either. Sold is sold from whichever way you look at it. I’m surprised that the employees are saying that they don’t have them in stock though if they really do. Perhaps they’re just trying to avoid an argument. I wouldn’t put up one personally as they’re just toys but still.

    Just curious, has anyone in the Savannah area ever seen Deluxe Cogman on the shelves? Trying to avoid the eBay prices.
