    You need this on front page now! This needs attention because this set is so highly sought after!

    I’ll be damned. If I lived close I would go and see if I could buy one.

    I kinda regret not knocking one down to see if it would at least scan or how much it was. I think there was another instance not too long ago of another store exclusive being found at a Wal-Mart?

    Any chance you could check it out tomorrow easily? Don’t know how close you live to that WM. 30 min drive from my house so not a super quick trip for me.

    I probably wouldn't be able to get out there till later in the day and me thinks they'll be gone by then, if its even in the system for them to sell. I kinda want to see whats going on with them.

    Annnnd they're gone. Finally got out here to check them and somebody got or moved them. Hopefully some collectors got them and not a scalper.

    I picked up studio series overload from the Jacksonville Wal-Mart. They are starting to hit here if anyone is interested.

    Picking up Slitherfang and Rung from the Jones Valley Target right now. One full case on the peg, it looks like.

    If you're looking to complete SS Devastator, they also have one each of Scavenger and Overload.

    If you dont use this site it is very accurate for Targets in our area. Looks like it is indeed sold out at the Mobile and Baldwin Co Targets. Target Inventory Checker | PopFindr

    Sounds like you all should try to start a southern Alabama (Birmingham and southern) sightings thread, concerning most of us N. Alabamians will never see anything that far down unless we have business or events down there. I promise you won't hurt our feelings and we will be aware of the S. Alabama Sightings page if we're in that area or feeling frisky enough for a 2+ hour drive.

    Yeah, I dont think that is necessary as long as people are clear about the locations they are finding stuff. This thread doesnt get enough traffic to warrant a split. Also dont know if mods would even allow it, since I dont see any other states, including much larger ones, split up.

    I normally check the target app, popfindr, and brickseek. The issue is the TMNT sets aren't showing in-stock for the 2 Mobile Targets on any of them even if they have stock. I learned this earlier this year. For example, this past Saturday the Schillinger's target had 3 of the Casey Jones pack, but it said out-of-stock on all 3 checkers.

    And the dcpi on the Target shelf matched the individual one for that set you were looking up? Maybe this is a case where they use assortment DCPIs for the TMNT sets like they do with Studio Series/WFC class sizes. If not, then no clue why it wouldnt work.
