    The other sets were in stock when I checked and the Carbonized Mandalorian lasted about 20 seconds so I think it was available.

    I found all 4 sets today at my Target. Only had one of Rocksteady and Bebop. Anyone need Marvel Legends Dani Moonstart (I have 3 extra)?

    Man that set is hard to get. They get eaten so quickly here! I'll keep checking but let me know if you see another set. Additionally, I am mulling over your 3 Moonstars...

    So back to Transformers: Citrus Heights Target, Orangevale Walmart, and both Roseville Walmarts and Targets had nothing new for Siege. Most had Wave 2 and 3 leftovers.

    I would go checking other stores this weekend, but I really don't want to drive in the rain. I think I'm just gonna order Siege Spinister, Rung and Singe online and be done with it. I've got Astrotrain coming from Amazon, and the Wave 5(?) Micromasters coming from an Ebay seller this next week.

    I just found 2 sets of the turtles and the foot soldiers and 0 R&B. Not sure if they put out the entire thing at GG Harbor Target or not. But hopefully more will show up later.

    I think they're sending two cases of each set of four to every Target. At least, that's what it appears to be based on people who've seen the set. Bebop and Rocksteady are going to be a challenge to find.

    If anybody else is as tired of hunting as I am, the latest wave of micromasters is in stock for shipping at Target.com

    I found Siege Crosshairs at Walmart in Santa Maria today, but nothing else in town.

    Sacramento Area:

    Roseville North Walmart had 5 35th Anniversary Bluestreaks and 1 35th Anniversary Megatron. I picked up one Bluestreak but found out later I already have one. Anybody need one before I return it?

    Randy on the NECA twitter account says that stores will be getting them this week and to ask associates to check the back if they aren't out on the shelves

    Sorry, I didn’t check. I’ll be going again tomorrow since I really wanna get my hands on Siege Astrotrain, Spinister, and Apeface. I’ll definitely try checking for you!
    I am actually not sure. I’ll have to check.
    EDIT: They were spotted in Florida a while ago. So, not news but might be first sighting here in California.

    Eh, I'd just say collectors. There's tons of us out there.

    that's what first came to my mind but Randy has been very adamant that Target be proactive with stocking the NECA section. Since TRU went under Target filled the void and I believe its consignment basis they sell on. They have collectors take pics nd report back as to how the NECA section is stocked. I've seen the regional NECA reps come in and make sure the section looks tidy and stocked.

    No I found them a few weeks ago, right after the news sighting.
