    So weeks ago there was a thread that said this figure was out. Since then i have called around and searched but haven't heard any news or seen any sign of him anywhere. Has anyone found this guy anywhere or was that just a one off incident?

    I think it's a one off. I've searched all of my targets in Jacksonville (all 15 of them) and no luck. I also called my cousin who's a DM in Central Florida for Target and she said they are not due until sometime in September based on her bills of lading.

    I think what they were saying it was released to suppliers. I believe tthe retail release is for late August/ early September.

    On a side note, Target seems to be getting the newest waves the earliest, so I would check there first.


    wingsbr beat me to it. I just relocated to Jax, like last night.

    Well, being a florida resident as well, i notice we tend to get the latest releases 1 month - 2 months after they get sighted. Which is kinda annoying.

    Try Vermont. If I found stuff here 1-2 months after the 1st sighting I'd be happy. If I don't find a GD ice cream truck soon I'm going to hurt someone!

    Been looking around myself for this one...No where in eastern to central PA.

    I have noticed that as of late, Target Exclusives are actually available ONLINE; where as the first run of exclusives for the first movie were only available in stores. Superion is still available ONLINE as well as the Titaniums, but no page for Bruticus yet. When Superion's page appeared online, it was about 2 days later I saw it at the store. I keep checking the online site to save the time/gas in travels...

    This is mass retail in the UK, but if you guys haven't got it yet I stand no chance for a bit. September at Target? Mid-October for me do you reckon?

    There were 1 or 2 sightings in the Georgia Sightings Thread a little while back (people who had it pulled from the back, IIRC), but no one's seen him recently in this state.

    Haven't seen him yet. I was just at Target today and all they had at mine was Superion.

    I keep checking my Targets once or twice a week, and according to the scanners, there aren't even any of these things in the stockroom.

    I'm in Washington and I've been asking lately. No such luck.
