Is there any chance of me finding a Space Case at this point?

    Haven't seen a Space Case yet, but seen his casemates (since, you know, Hasbro thought shortpacking the sole interesting figure in the case was a good idea).

    I'm wondering if anyone has been seeing those cases continue to trickle in. In my experience Target's been pretty bad with restocking exclusives but I was wondering if anyone's seen them continue to show up.

    I see once every so often at my local Targets. Mostly BB & Arcee though.

    Haven't seen any in a while but they were plentiful (as in I saw four at one time) a month back. Good thing I grabbed an extra.

    Have hope! I actually found and bought one last night. I suggest checking out of the way Targets if possible.

    My local Targets are pretty good at restocking exclusives, and I've seen Space Case several times after I purchased him (Jazz too). I can't remember the last time I saw a Space Case, but it was fairly recently. Hopefully you'll find one soon.

    Thanks guys, appreciate it. Been looking forward to the figure since I heard Terradive was getting a remold and I'm really interested in it.

    Space Case was pretty plentiful here the first few weeks it was released, but then vanished seemingly overnight with Jazz. Arcee and Bumblebee hung around for a little while now all I see from the wave is BB. Maybe someone has one in the Junkion Exchange you could snag?

    All 5 targets near my home and work got 2 cases each on July 4th, and have not restocked since. One of them didn't put it out for about a week (they're super lazy at that store) but I've still not seen any restocks since, and we're coming up on 4 months now.

    Haven't seen him in a while, but I wouldn't lose hope yet. There's at least a half-dozen Targets in my range, and I only regularly check two or three. Just keep your eyes open, and check every Target you can drive to. If all else fails, see if someone on the Junkion Exchange can hook you up. Either way, good luck! He's totally worth the effort.

    One thing that I remember when these figures first came out was they were displayed in another area of the store. In some Target stores they were in the movie section and in others they were up by the registers. A few days ago I still saw some of the exclusives (not Space Case though) in one of the store's movie section. Be sure to check other areas of the store and not just the toy section.

    Yup, there was a small TF display in the movie section of my Target as well. That's where I found a Hatchet fig.

    I finally managed to find one, and only one a couple days ago. Bubble was crushed and card was bent but I didn't care. Wish he was more plentiful in the case assortment
