    Just got a cancellation notice from Amazon for the Seeker 2 pack I ordered in August. Going to have one disappointed 11 year old on Christmas morning. Are there any other options other than paying a ridiculous amount to a scalper?

    Don't know how Amazon got a Target exclusive but the Earthrise seeker 2 packs are still seen in Targets.

    If you're in the Huntsville area, and you're talking about the Target guys, not the Coneheads, there are 4 available at the Jones Valley Target as of about 6pm today.

    Totally forgot about the other seeker 2 pack. Saw a post on Reddit. Someone else had the same problem.

    Yeah, I was talking about the Ramjet and Dirge two pack. Where do I get Thrust? Is he an exclusive also?

    Word is he showed up in Targets system so probably Target exclusive.

    I doubt Thrust will be an exclusive, they have a pattern they're releasing in and he'll probably be in Kingdom wave 2 wide retail.

    This is from Amazons conehead 2pack listing. This points to planned Earthrise release. Obviously plans can change but we dont have anything to go on other than Amazon description and someone finding Thrust listing in Targets system.

    Huntsville/Madison area
    University Target: 2 snapdragons, 3 seekers, 1 Skylynx, 5 clone packs
    Madison Target: 1 Skorponok, 3 seekers, 1 clone pack, 1 ER Optimus Prime
    Jones Valley Target: 2 Skylynx, 4 seekers, 1 Doublecrosser

    Can't remember 100% correctly but either the University or Madison Targets have 5 Masterpiece Starscreams. They still say $150 but I'm highly doubting it. I just got him at JV Target for 70% off ($45). he was the last one there.

    Sounds like an amazing deal, but I just can't bring myself to like movie Starscream's design enough to bite.

    I shouldn't have bought it. I love the transformation aspect of transformers. I think I want more masterpiece transformers now.

    I find it funny that the Movie Masterpiece Starscream just came out and then Target went and already clearances it. I have on intentions of getting. Really didn’t like the design of him.

    Wal-Mart did the same thing with jetfire last year. It seemed like it was only out a few weeks before it was discounted. It would be great if either store would do the same thing with the siege voyages. Lol.

    I know this isnt Transformers but has anyone seen the Walgreens Exclusive Mystique Marvel Legends in store recently? The one in the white outfit with two alternate heads. My son asked for it for his birthday. It came out last year and I've seen two of the four exclusives (Emma Frost and Infamous Iron Man) from that year but no Mystique.

    No sign of any hiss tanks in the Huntsville area. Even the stores that listed 2-3 of them were no were. This was at the Madison Blvd Walmart.

    Jones Valley Target stocked MP Ratchet. No wonder they were so eager to clearance Starscream. They also stocked Snapdragon, 2 Skipjack, and 1 Blitzwing. That's the most notable stuff. Good luck and enjoy the hunt!

    EDIT: Satellite Soundwave @ Hobbs Walmart.

    Went over to Arab this morning and found 2 cases of the hiss and 2 cases of the Retro figures. Grabbed a hiss, The Baroness and Stormshadow.
