    Is anybodys Target have a endcap of Animated Figures? Some people Targets have an endcap. Are all Targets going to do this. I am looking for Grimlock as most people are. Some Targets are not putting any of them out yet. I was just wondering i am probably going to hit my local Target. They have not put not Animated out yet since i was there Sunday. They may have put them on a endcap now i will check or call them to see about the Animated situation.

    from what I know most targets have chose not to sell yet, I know lots of wmarts and tru have them out but have also heard so selling have not received alot of replenish. I would say wait till the 22nd it ur looking at target, that way if they don't have them, at least is day off and they can look in the back. I was lucky to find Grimm and lugnut in a first run but waiting to the real date to look for more.

    Heard a rumor that Target was waiting for today to release their animated. As to tie into the release of the DVD. Makes sense. I need a Grimlock

    I just got home from hitting up 2 Targets around Pittsburgh PA, and they both are saying animated and deep space SS aren't coming out until Sunday.

    I hate all your Targets now, or mine, I can't decide which.

    The 2 Targets closest to me gave me the C* block on DS Starscream and Animated saying I had to wait till this Sunday while of course the Target furthest away about an hour or so already built the endcap on the 13th and I missed out on the Grimlocks since there was only 2 Lugnutz left but I did snag a Starscream :thumbs2:

    The offical set date for the endcap is the 22nd, but its not street dated, in fact we can set it up to a week in advance.

    incidnetly I set it in my store 2 days ago and the figures aren't selling at all (sold one grimlock and one bumbleebee thus far)

    go figure.

    Found Deep Space Starscream, along with the Animated Lugnut and Voyager Prime. Decided to get Deep Space since I never go to Target.

    I can't find the camera, unfortunately, but I'll keep looking so I can post some pictures.

    It's been a mixed bag. One Target near me has the end cap, another had Animated in the normal TF section and a few others sorta close by had nothing. *shrug*

    Yeah, I was told the same thing about the figures not hitting shelves until the 22nd, from a target employee, but a different Target let me take what I wanted from the back anyway :D

    I checked three different Targets yesterday and none had the Animated/DS Starscream endcaps set up yet. Going to have to check another one today, but I'm guessing I'll just have to wait until Sunday morning.
