    check the sightings forums. they may be of more use to you...

    I checked this morning with my transformer crew, and we hit 3 targets in the california bay area... Absolutely nothing... ( though yesterday 1 of them did push restock...)

    Anyways, no ultimate bumble bee, or new deluxes / voyagers there... Only new 25th anniversary Joes...

    yeah. highly doubtful on a sunday even more. I hit up so many TRUs and targets this weekend, those places are a fuckin madhouse. I doubt their bussiest days they are going to do a reset.

    Ha! Glad to hear I wasn't the only one spending my morning driving around in futility. I checked four Targets in the Bay Area (Peninsula, Serramonte and Daly City areas) and NOTHING. A handful of Real Gears, lots of Robot Heroes, and some Cyber Slammers. Even the movie Scout repaints were gone save one Skyblast.

    Sigh.... Concept Bumblebee, Arcee, and Dreadwing continue to elude me.....

    Went to two Targets and Walmarts in my area, and only one Target had put anything new out which were some 6" titaniums. All the rest of the pegs were pretty much cleaned out except for a few Target scouts.

    Wal-Mart had two Ultimate Bumbleebees, but they didn't have room for them, so they were just standing at the end of an aisle, not on the end caps, but in front of them. There was one Voyager Ironhide, which surprised me since none of the local stores have had any voyageers lately. Other than that there were 3 or 4 Swindles. Whoopee.

    Target had moved stuff around. They had the "new" scouts, Clocker and Skyblast or whatever his name is. They had moved over all the pegs so that there were only 3 deluxe pegs(with no deluxes on them). There were a ton of pegs for real gear, FABs, and Cyber Slammers, but only real gears were in stock. On my way into the store I saw a kid with a Voyager Starscream. Which was odd because as I said, no stores around me have had any voyagers. There wasn't even a space for voyagers in the toy aisle.

    It's not looking too good.

    I was at Target yesterday, and asked about the reset. I was told it would be done "sometime" next week.

    Conclusion = Target sucks, and their employees don't know jack shit or care.

    Driving around to the major stores on Sundays is a fool's errand. I learned this long ago. Even if they reset, they can't display new stock if they don't have any. I'm not checking anymore stores until at least mid-September.
