    The Bullseye logo'd store where I shop has added these nifty shelf labels in the action figure aisle. Don't know what all of them mean, but hey.. That's what forums are all about right? Speculation! The following were added in the last two days:

    Cyber Stompin' Robot $19.99
    Movie Plush $9.99
    Land Vehicle Arm Blaster $29.99
    Voice Changer Helmet $29.99
    Movie Leader $44.99
    Movie Voyager $19.99
    Desktop PC $69.99 (Probably not made by Hasbro)
    2 in 1 Beamers Asst. $14.99
    Walkie Talkie Power $16.99
    Transformers Gear 4 piece Gift Set $14.99 (Maybe the Legends leader set?)
    Air Vehicle Arm Blaster $29.99
    Robot Heroes 2 pk $5.99
    Cyber Slammers $7.99
    Fast Action Battlers $9.99
    Real Gear Asst. $6.99
    Movie Deluxe Asst. $9.99
    Movie Scout Asst. $7.99

    I'm guessing that the Robo-Vision Prime will be on an endcap where the Spider-Man Target Exclusive figure sets are now. The exclusive Magnus / Skywarp set was only set to display on an endcap as well.

    Speculate away!

    More encouragement for me to buy as much as possible at HTS.

    Of course, that won't work for the Target-exclusive Scouts....

    I was wondering if I shoulda waited when I paid $44.99 for Prime at Fred Meyer last week. Good to know he won't be cheaper elsewhere... well, at least at Target.

    Nope. its the boxed set of the stuff like the motion detector and other "spy" type toys. They're not transformers at all, really.

    Well if the Leader Class are $45 at Target that means they will be at least $46 at TRU...because you know we must pay the "privilege of shopping at TRU" mark-up.

    For $45 the Leader Class figures are officially off my list. They were pushing it at $40, so that is a deal breaker for me. I might pick one up once they hit clearance.

    Nice to see those prices. I found a bunch of movie toys at Shopko today(FAB's, Voyagers, stuffed prime and BB, Robot hero's, Movie Legends) and the prices were quite a bit higher then those Target ones.

    I'm surprised Targets have already set this planogram up since a lot of the stores are still adhering to the June 2nd street date. 2 weeks of having a 8 foot "hole" in your aisle just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    Right, but they're not hiking the Voyager price. It's still $19.99.

    That's what the Target stores here do very time there's a reset. They'll leave the pegs and shelved empty until the street date, usually set my them, not so in this case. This way, the pegs and shelves are all ready come the 2nd and all they need to do is fill them rather than have to set everything up.

    I can't believe they're charging $5.99 for the Hero's. Those things are worth about 25 cents each, 50 cents at the most & are about the same quality as a gumball machine toy. I really wanted to collect them but not for those prices. I'll probably just get Shockwave & that's all. How disappointing.

    And before you say it, they're all too expensive, the Marvel, the Star Wars, the Spider-Man, none of them are worth $3 each! That crap adds up too damn fast!

    Knowing Target's behavior lately, those Robovision Primes will be up front near the registers like they did with the Star Wars Order 66 sets.
    They were no where near the toy section and a lot of collectors were missing them at first.

    Always check the DPCI # on those lil red boxes or find someone with a scanner.

    I'm glad the Beamers are only $15, though I'm still not sure what they are.

    What's bothering me is the amount of surprise merchandise from Ams list that isn't HASBRO product. I thought most of the non-Hasbro stuff would hit later on.

    I'll be burning a lot of gas on that Saturday morning: Walmart, Target, TRU, etc..
    And if those stores do a repeat of the Spiderman 3 merchandise then each store is going to have a little something different. I saw 3 different Targets within 20 miles of each other and none of them had exactly the same setup or merchandise, same thing with Walmart.

    7 days until the hunt of your lives begins...

    Same thing at my local Target the whole section has been moved around. They bumped Spidy and have the peg markers up and a sign that says "We are making something new for you". No toys in the aisle, not even protos. I almost wonder if that sign is an attempt to calm down impatient collectors. :)
