    *sigh*

    More in the search pile. Also, another case of me wanting only one from each multipack.

    That's interesting because the targets near me don't carry legends normally. Except for that 5 pack legends with sparkcrusher.

    /Agree

    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.

    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.
