    That's correct. What I think happened is that they do have them, but they didn't get scanned by the store itself.

    Basically, if they didn't make it off the pallet from the truck, the store will show a "no location"

    I just jumped too quickly. I've had this happen before when I was looking for the first initial stock of Power Ranger Legacy figures. Besides, I live in the Wilkes Barre area. I am sure that store will get them within the next week.

    Just wanted to get my hands on them before the scalpers do. Which of course I ran into the Hot Wheel scalper, as usual.

    Anyone looking for them might have better luck tomorrow. They did say they are looking to do aisle resets and are behind, and also the TR figures we're all marked down so it's going to take a couple more days maybe.

    I will say, been a while since I have been this excited for main stream Transformer toys.

    Grabbed rodimus prime and Optimus and grimlock from the mccandless target. I left the starscream on the shelf (he looks better in person but I still couldn't pull the trigger) they all had to be pulled from the stock room

    Just picked up Rodimus Prime from Warrington Target. It was the only one the associate brought out which is fine. I can wait for Optimus. Not sure if there’s an Optimus in the back or not.

    I haven’t seen any in a long long time.. maybe local comic book shops may have them?

    I’d hit up eBay or amazon.

    Homestead Target had basically no TFs on the shelf

    North Versailles Walmart had a ton of Blitzwing and Octane, and a Megatron.

    Target - montgomeryville
    Brickseek said limited stock of leaders here.
    Came in to ask, but didn't have to.
    Found 1 of each, rodimus & optimus, sitting on shelf.
    Both coming home with me.
    Not sure what's left in back.
    If anything.
    Not sure what 'limited stock' means for the leaders.

    Considering that Montgomeryville on Brickseek now says “out of stock” I’m imagining that it’s 1-2 of an assortment. Probably need a few cases of leaders for them to be considered “in stock” since I think most stores have been getting 1 box of them at a time.
    And given that inventory systems can be off by 1-2, I’d say it’s a safe bet the above is true.

    And grabbed Optimus Prime from Plymouth Meeting Target. Very nice gentleman was kind enough to bring the case out from the back. He explained the “T” in front of the aisle number when they look them up on their handhelds means there’s no place set for them yet, but they’re supposed to go in that aisle.

    2 cases give it a listing of "In Stock". 1 case or less is "Limited Stock". Found this out the hard way when I bought mine.

    Long time lurker, first time poster. Just wanted to say that I’d been to 3 different Targets in and around the Philly area over the past month or so, and every associate I’d talked to had been incredible. First the POTP deluxes, then Grimlock, and now Optimus. Each time the folks on the floor were really nice in checking for them and pulling them from the back, even though they were technically supposed to wait for the reset.

    Brickseek said Robinson Target had POTP deluxes, but the associate was unable to find them. Grabbed Cosmos, so not a total waste of time. Robinson Wal-Mart's deluxe pegs are still clogged with TR oldies.

    PoTP Rodimus and a Knight Armor Hound at the Swatara Target. Not sure if anyone's looking for the second one but I've never seen it.

    Depends on where you to. I called ahead and the worker I got was able to locate them in the back. He said that they are supposed to wait for the "reset" but because it is not a street dated product he could sell them to me.

    It really depends on who you talk to.

    Carnegie Wal-Mart still has that Overlord, and also mysteriously a Galvatron.
