    So I'm kinda confused about this because I've seen this floating around the forums a bit lately. Is there supposed to be an official release date of the Prime toys soon or something? I've already seen the toys on shelves at a ton of stores, so I'm just lost with this thing. And when is this "official" release supposed to be if it even exists?

    Target should be doing a reset tomorrow. At least wave one of cyberverse, deluxes and voyagers. Maybe wave two of deluxes as well.

    When I went out yesterday, the manager in the toy department at Target said that they were putting them out on Monday. So Sunday/Monday is the day to check stores out. The funny thing about that statement she made...there were Wave 1 deluxes already on the shelf. When I went to a different Target, ALL of Wave 1 was out haha...woops.

    Needless to say, I'm confused too haha :)

    I've read that they're starting to pop up at Walmart now too... I planned on stopping by tonight after I get off work to see if that's the case... I'm also kind of hoping wave 2 deluxes AND voyagers are out and about.

    I know that they're in Stock at most Targets and I believe that they go out tomorrow, 2/26.

    They've had them for a couple weeks at TRUs in So Cal, and at Targets for at least a week, but it's nothing but empty pegs whenever I go in. The only thing I've seen in person are Revealers Bumblebee and Cyberverse Bee and Cliff, and even those were completely gone the next time I stopped by.

    Kids must be going crazy for these because at store after store I visit, all I see is 6 or 8 completely empty pegs.

    Hasbro had mentioned a formal date at toyfair.
    March 1st.
    TRU has had them on shelf for month already.
    Target had them in storeroom for that month.
    Some stores will have them out on 26th, but not all stores.
    Of 4 targets i passed through today, only 1 had reset aisle.
    Other 3 hadn't even started.
    K-mart has started putting wv1's out.
    Wal-mart's are surprisingly iffy so far.

    Most stores should have cases already, they just haven't made the space for them on the shelves yet.

    I happened on a fresh Prime deluxe case last night at one of my Walmarts (I live in the middle of 5, 15min in each direction). Nothing saying Prime on the peg labels, but I checked the price scanner to be sure and they're in the system. I bought mine, no issue.
