    Yes. I even asked if I came in today and wanted to get some and they said they would not sell them.

    Called my Target earlier today to ask about AOE, they didn't specify a change in date or anything but they claimed they hadn't received them yet. Which is probably a crock, considering they likely didn't quite clear out all the BH / PR stuff yet, but I could understand if the guy didn't want to tell me "yes, we have them but I can't sell them to you" on the basis that most people would whine and gripe about it until they did.

    Very strange, though. I wonder what would make them push the release back a day? My Walmart is already stocking them...

    Yeah, that is incredibly stupid on Targets part, and come to think of it while Walmart and TRU both has space cleared for the AOE toys yesterday, Target still had all of the Beast Hunter stuff they were trying to get rid of. Looks like I'll be crossing Target off my list today.

    Jeez, Toyzaremine, that's a nice setup. Bunch of Generations including Voyagers I've never seen at retail like Whirl and Rhinox, and an entire slotting of AOE product. Yeesh, I wish I had a place like that around here.

    The Wave 2 toys are still connected with the Wave 1 DPCI number for them, so even if it says in-stock it could be referring to the Wave 1 toys.

    Plus I just called a nearby Target that the website said had both Galvatron and Hound in-stock, they checked all eight of the voyagers they had in and all they had were Grimlock and Evasion Optimus

    The Target I went had the tags out but not figures. I asked someone to check to see if they had any in stock and he said they didn't.

    Both Targets I went to today had nothing. My TRU was well stocked though.

    Wal-Mart sucks (as usual).

    Also if your Target has stock just ask them to pull it.
