    This afternoon I picked up a Primus from a Tucson, AZ Target. On my way home, I stopped by another Target and they had him as well. Attached is a pic for proof. There were a couple of weird things. First each Target only had 1 case in stock. Of all four total Primus' none of them had the Unicorn head with them. The other weird thing is the price. My guess is these use the same DPCI code as Supreme Starscream, because the cashier told me that he was on clearance and was marked down a bunch! I only payed $11.24 for him, which is the price I remember Starscream going for around here when they where overloaded with him. Anyways let the search begin!!

    I guess all the versions with the Unicron head were shipped to Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.

    I wish I lived on your side of town, Schnafe. It seems like the Targets in your area always get stuff first.

    That's an incredible price you got, although I really want that Unicron head.

    Well don't forget what was said before about there being a reason why collectors will want to get 2. The one with the Unicron head will probably be out later at some point.


    That way, everyone who is tired of waiting will get it when it's new and then a lot of them will just HAVE buy another one for the Uni head. If that turns out to be the case, then that's just low.

    Hmm... if I can find one that cheap, screw the head. I'm sure head versions will pop up though.

    Man, that's going to upset me if the Primus that I get ends up being headless.

    That was in reference to the Galaxy Force version though, since it came out at least 4 months ago.

    Damn. Even if I could find one with a head, I don't have enough money right now. No money = no head.

    Story of my life.

    The Unicron head really isn't that great anyway. I've seen it in person and it's nothing you'd really miss, especially for $11.
