    That's odd. When I scanned it at mine, it said Greatest Hits (something like "grtst hts") on the screen, but the register and receipt were something like "Transformers - sporting goods". (Yeah, I don't know either. =\ )

    I wonder if we will even get a similar Blaster Tapes pack?

    Considering there isn't a new version of Blaster for the BB movie toyline, I'd say no.

    Unless they unveil another wave of Target exclusives at one of the upcoming shows.

    Picked up my own set today while out of town before work, had to give the upc to the woman working nearby because the nearest Target to me (an hour drive away) prefers empty shelves to fully stocked shelves. My 84 Soundwave & Cassette are now complete :thumb

    New Hartford, NY still hasn’t put theirs out, yet I was able to pick up the one I ordered online yesterday! Saved $5 using a PayPal credit I had.

    Haven't seen them on the shelves in the Detroit metro area yet, although yesterday (Sunday the 30th) was the last I checked.
    DID finally see the Soundwave set on shelves though, but I managed to snag one of those during the week from a stocker.

    So are any of the Bumblebee movie toys going to be good? I saw Walmart put some out and they seem to be Cyberverse tier at best. That's like having a dozen restaurants in town that are all almost as good as McDonalds. The movie seems like it could be OK in a vaguely-connected-to-the-source way (think Dolph Lundgren MOTU) from what I saw of the trailer.

    Studio Series, basically. The main Bumblebee line is all gimmicky and works with electronics or that Energon booster block. All the size classes (minus those shampoo bottle titan figures that barely transform and the electronic figures) should work with that gimmick. If you want other CHUG like toys in the line, you'll need to head to Target who are re-releasing previous toys in new decos or remolds.

    If you mean new molds, the Energon Igniters Barricade is okayish (though he lacks decent hip articulation), and I actually think the Power Charge Bumblebee looks pretty good: unobtrusive electronic gimmick, and a better transformation than the Studio Series VW Bee. Not sure if anyone's interested in a Bee that's bigger than a Leader-class figure, though.

    Yeah, instead of running to the toy department, not finding it and having to go through some hassle with some employee who may or may not go back to get the thing, all you have to do is walk up to Guest Service and it will be waiting for you.

    Hell, I have the app on my phone, so I really didn't even have to get out of my car, they would have brought it right to me in the parking lot.

    Transformers toys are rarely released in a way that you can even do online in store pick-up, people should take advantage of this.

    I meant more or less Generations type figures. So like @TFXProtector says I guess that means I would need to track down Studio Series releases.

    I just ordered two to be shipped, I'll have them tomorrow. Seemed way easier than going to the store(s) Brickseek says has them, and not finding them yet again.
    If I don't want two, I'll just return one on my next trip to Target.

    We still need Eject, Ramhorn and Steeljaw for Blaster at the very least. Look at that, 3 tapes, just like the Bumblebee set. Make it happen Hasbro!

    At least Eject and Steeljaw could get away with just being repaints. Ramhorn would need to be an all new mold and I'm not certain Hasbro would go all out on a brand new toy (although in the case of Punch/Counterpunch, they might...).

    I’d happily take a Rosanna I’m place of Ramhorn, although I’m not sure Hasbro would want to even release the pink cassette character.
