Found the Target exclusive Legends twopacks this morning at the Tacoma, Wa store.
More in the search pile. Also, another case of me wanting only one from each multipack.
gah need shadow striker!
Well, hello there, Smokescreen. Nice to see you. Now, come to Jersey so I can buy you.
That's interesting because the targets near me don't carry legends normally. Except for that 5 pack legends with sparkcrusher.
Would been nice if Starscream could have been deco'd as Skywarp and Bumblebee could have been replaced with a flying autobot using the Legends Blackout mold or something. Give ROTF Whirl another size class fig. That'd been better.
Yeah, I don't think any Targets have been carrying the single pack Legends figs. I don't recall seeing them there for quite a long time. Not for ROTF anyways.
I don't think I've ever seen single-pack Legends at a Target, including Movie 1 and Classics/Universe. Maybe during Cybertron.
These were on an endcap with deluxe toys and the BB/Soundwave sets near the regular TF section. Last time I saw legends at Target was for the RotF launch and they disappeared after the first wave.
Same here. Not sure why they'd bypass an entire class.
I just remembered: not during Cybertron, either. When Legends first started, they were a "Market 6" exclusive. Fairly shortly afterward, they made their way into TRU, then Walmart and K-Mart a while later. Target has never bothered with the singletons, apparently.
For those who haven't heard the term before (I know you probably have, ams), "Market 6" is a term Hasbro made up, as far as I can tell. They explained it to mean toy retailers outside the "big five": Walmart, Target, K-Mart, TRU, and KB. Of course, KB would likely no longer be on that list. The "non-big" toy retailers include places like Meijer, Fred Meyers, CVS, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, etc.
Interesting, I never heard that term before
What's the DPCI (product number) on the receipt?
It looks like: 087-06-0219
Got nothing for that searching on Target.com.
Target did carry single carded movie 1 and 2 legends in very limited quantity. Not all Targets had them and they only had 1 or 2 waves. They never carried Cybertron.
I found the same thing at one Target I stopped by this morning, here in Atlanta, GA; I passed on getting the Legends packs, since I already have versions of all of those molds. The endcap is several pegs of Deluxes, several pegs of the Legends two-packs, a shelf of the NEST Battle Packs and (IIRC) a shelf of Voyagers. The other two Targets I visited didn't have the endcap set up or the Legends two-packs out yet.
How do you search for specific DPCIs on Target.com? If they have a listing I know how you can pull up a box that will let you search for that listing (with the DPCI # fixed) in your area, but putting in a DPCI number in the search box at the top does nothing.
This made me realize I've never seen a Legends Rodimus.
I'm sad now.
That's interesting about Target and Legends. They got the exclusive Universe legends 5 packs too (Special Team Leaders and Aeriel Rivals). It seems they get most of the exclusive legends and none of the regular ones.
they carry legends for xmas as stocking stuffers. they put them with the xmas stuff and they get clearenced out with that stuff. (i've gotten some legends at target for 90% off, about $.50)
