    I saw on Target.com that they put up a preorder for the Bumblebee Deluxe 2 pk.
    For $19.96.

    http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-14/qid=1186790886/ref=sr_1_14/601-5827055-7606520?ie=UTF8&asin=B000OQMBF2


    Availability :
    Item arriving in 2 to 6 weeks. Order now.

    This item is available online, but is not available in stores.

    Features
    • Collectible 2 pk. of robot-to-vehicle figures
    • Features the Autobot hero in classic Camaro vehicle mode and Camaro Concept vehicle mode with exclusive battle-damaged deco
    • Classic Camaro vehicle features double missile-launching blasters, while the Camaro Concept vehicle features a cannon that converts to a blade





    If someone who works for Target can you confirm or deny this.

    Target has done this in the past. One of their exclusives says internet only and they show up in stores. I can't imagine they'd be stupid and limit something like this to the internet anyway.

    Damn it!! I was about to post this, my first frontpage!! Agh, whatever. I saw this and didn't care, CCBB battle damage FTL. Maybe it means you can only preorder online but can buy it in stores

    Nah, generally you can't preorder from stores anyways...so that notice means (and quite clearly states) it is an online exclusive.

    After the SDCC Exclusive debacle, I placed an online order for two. Better safe than sorry.

    Anyone want a Classic Camero BB for $10? I'm thinking of ordering this pair but dont need the 77 version.

    Edit; on second thought, I'll pass. The battle damage crap looks bad and I'm not in love with the figure enough get it right now.

    I'd get it if it weren't for the battle damage on CCBB, I might get him. I was thinking of using thinner on the damage, but I figure I'd foul it up if I tried

    I wouldn't panic. I'm sure he's got a spot on an endcap sometime in the future. I've been punching the numbers up at work and they're in the stores system. Usually online only stuff would come up "Not on file". Like Pimpimus said, past Target exclusives have said "online only" and showed up in stores later.

    Yeah, the battle damage is killing it for me... They must think we lack the ability to creat our own battle damage....

    Well, it's off now. Dammit.

    I've been trying to do the retail only thing, and it's driving me crazy. Back to case pre-orders after this line...
