    What with their sale ending tomorrow, I finally have the cash to (potentially) grab Voyager SS (which I have been wanting to pick up since the 2nd).

    I'm supposed to be going to my uncle's tonight (heading out for Six Flags tomorrow, yay)..so I HOPE he can make a stop there since this is probably my last chance in a while to pick the bastard up.

    So yeah...

    Don't bother with Target. Their inventory of movie figures sucked from the start, and isn't likely to be any better at the end of the sale.

    I say get the ad in hand, and go to WalMart. WM has had far better inventory, from what I've seen. You could even try a TRU, if they pricematch, I dunno. I'm just afraid a trip to Target could be a waste of time.

    The Target I went to had like, every movie toy that could possibly be available on launch day. Ratchet, Leader Prime, Robovision Prime, Barricade, Ironhide, you name it.

    Voyager SS is one of the figures I couldnt find at Target. All I saw was Blackout and Ratchet. And the only deluxe I saw was Jazz, but thats cos they were sold out of the others (the voyagers were warming). Plenty of protoforms warming though

    The Targets around here were pretty stocked. There was only 1 that really had a lack of figures but for some reason they did have Leader megs.

    Been blown away by Target, Walmart, TRU and even Meijers stock lately.
    There seems to be a reason to visit them all. Go nuts man, screw gas.

    My Target had perfectly fine selection. I dropped almowt $100 easily and this was after spending $90 at TRu the day before. I think the only thing I have NOT seen is Megs. Hell even the KB in my mall had a ton of stuff, first time in a year or so they have had more than the 2 Universe Snowcats they have had forever.

    I didn't think the Voyagers were on sale at Target. Was I told wrong?

    All of the 5 or 6 Targets I've been to in the last week have had a nearly complete assortment of movie figures.

    My experience was of going to five Targets, looking for deluxes. At four of them, the only deluxes they had were movie preview protoforms. Only one had the likes of BB, Jazz, Scorponok, etc.

    The Target I went to in Savannah had all the deluxe and voyager figures, Leader Prime, Real Gear, Robot Heroes, etc. They did not have Leader Megatron or the 3" Titaniums set, to my knowledge. I was lucky that I arrived when they were putting out stock. I pulled a few figures straight out of the cases that I did not see when I returned, mostly deluxe and maybe 1 voyager.

    I hit my Target and they had raincheck things out for Robovision Prime and the leader class toys. And the rainchecks are good for 45 days. So I picked 'em up - I figure I'm not obligated to use the raincheck, but if I do I get the sale price anytime in the next month. (They didn't have RV Prime in stock, but they did have leaders, but still had a raincheck booklet. Hee hee.)

    I know the sale is over now so it doesn't really matter, but not every other TF product was on sale. The scouts, FABs, plush, Optimash Prime and a number of other things weren't included - at least they weren't at any of the 5 Targets I went to.
