    Target 2-packs now available at Target.com

    I just got an email from Target get saying that the exclusive 2-pack of Roadbuster and Dirge are available. I'm assuming this means you can find the Springer vs Ratbat pack on there too.

    Transformers Universe Autobot Ambush - Roadbuster and Dirge : Target

    Here's a copy of the email they sent me

    I thought I remembered seeing that someone found these guys in stores, but the website says "This item is available online, but is not available in stores." Humm.
    Edit: Never mind, this was explained to me. I believe it means no site to store shipping.

    Waaaait, 29.99? Weren't they originally supposed to be cheaper than that?

    Uh.. in any case, thanks but no thanks. I wanted Ratbat and Roadbuster, but I don't want them THAT badly. I'd split 2 2-packs, but I don't feel like paying for an extra Deluxe and Voyager I never really wanted.

    They claim it's "Online only" but if you're sneaky, you can use the existing store search with the item's ASIN/DCPI:

    http://www.target.com/gp/store-info/find-target-store.html?asin=B0017MX4HG

    http://www.target.com/gp/store-info/find-target-store.html?asin=B0017N4DDY

    Though I'm not entirely sure how accurate the results will be...

    Well these sets just got bumped to "X-mas wishlist" status at the moment, as the only thing making these sets anywhere near "moneysaver sets" is the included $3 comic. And awesome paint jobs. If X-mas comes and goes without these guys, I'll get 'um on clearance, hopefully.

    I will admit - i missed that fine print when I first looked at them online - thanks for the heads up! I still hope they are going to be sold in stores but I'd pull the trigger online if target does any sort of holiday free shipping thing. I didn't think target did site to store shipping .. isn't that just walmart?

    Since the nearest Target to me is 70+ miles away this helps a lot, although it would have been nice if the Animated Deluxe/Legends sets were up too. If you get both you can go to retailmenot.com and click on "Click here to claim" were it says get $5 off $50. That should take care of a lot of the shipping cost.

    Thanks for the link! That was enough to convince me to order them online. It costs less than $2 more than in the store, and it removes the guesswork. Nice.

    Check the thread in the "Toys" forum. There's a link to that will save you $5 off a $50 Target online order, which very nearly pays for the shipping! I ordered them for less than $2 more what I would have paid in-store.
