    The Target in Spring Valley had both leader class figures. From what the stock guy told me, they had a few in the back. He got one of each for me. No other PotP stuff sighted but at least the leaders are hitting. I'm still looking for Grimlock.

    But TRU had leader Dragonface or whatever his name is!! My new years resolution is I'm just buying all my figures on BBTS or TFsource and saving running around. I say this as I just shipped my pile of loot from BBST with like 13 things in it

    Hey all, for those going to Targets based off Brickseek, how are you asking the employee to find it in the back (if the item isn't out)? Do you give them the UPC or DCPI? Or do you give them the barcode that Brickseek generates?

    I give them the dpci. I worked for Target for years, and that is the easiest number to search in their system.

    Went to the TRU in LIC last night before the storm. They had one Dreadwind, 5 shrapnels, 1 slash (BROUGHT) and 1 windcharger (almost brought but I like the last version way better). They also had one Fort Max, and a ton of movie toys no one wants.

    Went to the Webster Target after seeing on Brickseek they had Rodimus Leader, Optimus Leader, and Grimlock Voyager in stock. Provided the DCPI to a staffer (nothing on the floor), he went in the back for 10 min (told me he had to lower a pallet) and emerged with all 3. So if you want the Leaders and Voyagers now, and dont want to wait until Jan 7 (thats the reset date he told me), just ask a kind staffer. The Leaders look pretty sweet in the box. Saving them for my sons bday in Feb. He plays with them, but sadly, I get more excited than he does to unwrap them.

    Commack Target had POTP Voyagers in the back, Scored my Grimlock :) . The Toysrus over there was fully stocked on Wave 1 Deluxes and Legends, as well as the Prime Masters. They also had Infernocus, like 4-5 of them

    Thasts not true. Distribution is in the Town of Florida and like a block away from the border of Amsterdam. Technically, we are the closest. We get things late and have shitty distribution...but we are the closest. So distance from DC can't be the reason for Albanys speed.

    So if it shows on brick seek, it’s most likely it’s in stock? I’m about to check out target I’m flushing for Rodimus

    Good luck. It should be there. If it’s not on the shelf just ask them to check the back. Sometimes I have to ask multiple workers, once you find one that wants to help your good.

    Checked target in Greece and chili. Apparently optimus and rodimus are in transition and so won't be out until sometime this week. So, they are in the store but no one wants to get them from the back.
