    Anyone hitting Target in the Albany area today? Brickseek doesn’t seem to be working for siege figures. Looks like the deluxe and voyagers showed up at target in Virginia. No receipt tho.

    I just spoke with a cool associate at target. None of the assortment dpci’s are active in the system. They don’t even come up yet in his scanner. Probably why brickseek is not showing any.

    Does that mean they don’t have em in stock or they can’t sell them to you?

    Sorry, basically they didn’t even show up in their system yet. He showed me the screen. He said they might have received them early, but their corporate people haven’t activated them yet. So the DPCI only comes up as a generic ”Hasbro”, same as brickseek.

    Has anyone seen the G1 reissue Bee/Outback/Swerve/Tailgate actually in store? Online they are always out of stock.

    I'm afraid the closest place you're gonna get to buying Third Party figures in Buffalo is to head up to TFCon Toronto next summer, as far as I know at least.

    Do it when it's in the stores.

    I'm telling seibertron (the other tf website) are some of the worst scalpers out there on their eBay account.

    Checking my posting history, it was 11/22/17 when POTP Wave 1 showed up at Target. I expect Siege to follow suit.

    Only at conventions. Illegal for retailers... well not ILLEGAL but Hasbro would probably blacklist them.

    You could try Foxprowl in Batavia. Cool store, nice old building, and they will find you anything you want.

    Foxprowl is pretty good. They get transformers from time to time but it’s mostly Godzilla and Star Wars stuff. There’s a shop in Rochester called bartertown collectibles that does get in 3P stuff on the regular
