    Just a heads up to you all, what with the news of figures hitting clearance, I figured I'd let you know that after checking with my pda and our computers at work (work at Target) both Generations and Hunt for the Decepticons/Reveal the Shield come up as discontinued, so anyone holding out better get while they can.

    Are you sure about Generations? They aren't marked NCF or on clearance (yet).

    maybe that's why they put all RTS & Generations on clearance, even the wave 2 of RTS. I was surprised, they're getting ready to put the DOTM toys, too bad.

    id expected as much with RTS/HFTD because that look the place of the movie line. Surprised Generations is seemingly cancelled.

    That was a given about HFTD/RTS, since that was essentially the Movie 2.5 line. I remain unconvinced regarding Generations.

    I'll double check on my next shift, just to make certain.

    Who didn't see this coming after "we'll continue the Generations line alongside DOTM"? :lol  Oh Hasbro, you can't fool us anymore. Wouldn't be so bad if the movie toys didn't suck so hard this time except like four molds.

    He's pretty cool honestly in hand. I'm gonna pick up the rest while I can then ride the Hell that will be movie toy overload out. I hate when they axe everything for movie toys, I know retailers fault but still.

    If Generations hit clearance, I too will be picking up a Skullgrin. I've avoided the mold since I don't like tank TFs. If Darkmount were still around, I'd be able to have every figure from the line.

    Yea, I hope he's a bit surprising in hand, bc even his pictures look pretty crappy. I have Darkmount so I'm "ok" with the mold, but that SG head looks awful.

    But, Clearance that bitch down to 8 bucks, lemme use a 5 buck coupon, and my gf's 15% discount for working there, and I'm not complaining. I'll throw that shit on the shelf and only remember I own it when asked. Hush mode.

    Yea, SG's the last Generations figure I'd need now that Meh'path came yesterday... it's sad that it's looked so bad that I wouldn't even buy it as the last figure to complete a toyline.

    Kohls. If you have one near I'd bet money they have some Darkmounts mixed in between 20-30 Jazz and Tracks.

    Thanks for the reminder on Kohl's Luke. It's been mentioned a lot but I always forget checking there.

    I don't doubt that they are coming up as discontinued on your pda. But I think it's because of the way Target organizes their inventory. Maybe you can clarify b/c you work there but a while ago, i had an employee check inventory for a wfc cliffjumper as i was returning a defective one, looking to exchange it. There were none on the pegs, so he scanned mine and it told him there were 36 in stock in the back. I checked often but none ever came out. Other deluxe figs from the line and RTS/HFTD were, but not that one.
    I have to assume from that, when you scan a upc, it's not telling you how many of that fig are in stock, but how many in that line (as Target groups them) are in stock.
    So being lumped together that way in inventory, when RTS/HFTD is discontinued, Generations is coming up as discontinued as well.
    I just think Generation is going on hiatus for a bit as DOTM comes out. It will be back after the movie dies down. Same thing happened with the last movie, and the line continued as Generations

    Np, they tend to set figures out early too so if you're looking for movie figures I'd keep watch there or Meijer.

    Mine actually had 2 when I went this weekend. But my gf used the $10 gift on some clothes so...I'll have to wait for another one to come.
