    Hi, I work part time at a Target store, in the backroom.
    Today's trailer contained a carton of Transformers. The label said "Universe Ultra." So I anxiously cut open the case to peek inside before I backstocked it.
    I pulled out one box, and it was a Universe Constructicon 2-Pack!

    Sorry guys, I forgot to check the set date.
    But when I work Monday, I will be sure to get that info!

    Any chance you can get the DCPI for these? Worth a shot at least, to go into a store armed with that and hope to find an employee to go get 'em for you.

    Excellent!! [/Burns]

    Thank you sir. The swanky new Target near downtown has the newer scanners scattered about, where you yourself can punch in the DCPI and it will tell you if the item is in the stockroom...at which point you flag down an employee, show them the scanner and they have a hard time weaseling out of helping you.

    Score... now the question is will my store get these in before summer since we still haven't gotten new deluxes, voyagers, alts, or even leaders yet.

    Your store should. If I remember right, Target has a special end cap scheduled for some time in March that will have the Universe Ultras and the Cybertron Ultra/Mini-con bonus packs.

    Ultras with minicons? I don't remember hearing about that... you didn't mean the deluxes with the shield team members did you?

    Ah yeah.. it was Voyagers. Target is also getting those Deluxe versus packs (not the BOGO's like at Walmart and TRU). I'm not sure if those are showing up in March though.

    Yeah, right? These were on the back of the Universe Deluxe cards a year ago. I don't remember exactly how long before then that we knew about them, six months or so? Either way, these have been a looong time coming.

    Well, I guess if you consider that since these showed up in RiD (or CR for that matter) people have been clamoring for them in Constructicon colors, it really has been YEARS. :p 

    'Bout frickin' time, at any rate.

    On an unrelated tangent, everybody seems to call them DCPI numbers, it's DPCI. DePartment Class Item :p
