    Thank you! What stores do you usually go to? I'm in Rancho Penasquitos so I usually go to Target's in Poway, Mira Mesa and Del Sur. Sometimes Escondido if I'm in that area. First time I went to Walmart in Poway was last week and was actually surprised they had stuff. I'll be sure to post my findings more often

    I'm from the Chula Vista area, so most of my stops are around either that area or National City. Those places usually don't have the more sought after stuff though.

    How accurate is PopFinder?

    I only ask since it said the seeker 2 pack was available at my Target and I went to check,the staff was actually very friendly this time and looked in the back but no luck then an hour later Popfinder said they were back to zero.

    Ive been keeping an eye on them on the Target App as well. Hopefully soon:redface2: 

    And is Brickseek still good to use?

    I haven’t found Brickseek reliable in months. Popfinder is not 100% accurate, but there is at least some activity on it. I use it as a signal to start hunting once I see sightings get closer to my area.

    Scored the 2-pack clones at Cerritos Target on South St today using store pickup. Randomly checked stock at 7:30am and it was available for pickup. While I was there to do my pick up around 5pm, swung by the endcap and it was a mess. Only 1 Earthrise Prime and 2 ER Grapples left among others I didn’t really care for.

    Westlake target had a studio series Scrapper and movie 1 Megatron. They also had a bunch of jet Shatters, a couple off road Bumblebees, dotm Soundwave, a couple studio series Roadbusters, and 2 sets of Arcee triplets. They had a bunch on the pegs but there were a few deluxes spread throughout the toy section.

    Also if anyone is interested in a Marvel Legends Squirrel Girl, she was on clearance for $33.

    If anyone is interested in those LEGO busts, there were 2 Ironman sets on the top shelf.

    Nothing interesting TF wise in Walnut Creek Target this afternoon other than 1 leader ER Optimus.

    For those collecting McFarlane DC Multiverse, they had Batman: White Knight Azrael (awesome figure), and a ton of Joker. Didn’t see any Batman. They did have the blue color variant Animated Batman.

    Brickseek and pop have both been quite accurate for me. Went to a target that had two seekers, had an employee check who then stated they just sold em about 20 mins before I got there. Checked brickseek again and the stock updated.

    If you're still looking for Earthrise Prime, Target in Glendale has SEVEN of them on an end cap. Same number of Astrotrains and one each of the first wave deluxes. No seeker or clone sets, though.

    Target in Puente Hills had 2 Earthrise Optimus Primes on the shelf but they wouldn’t let me buy one because their system showed a street date of 9/1/20.

    Hi
    Im new to this thread. Can someone tell me about the Popfinder app? I only saw a site with this name, but its all about Funko pop. Is that the same one being mentioned here?

    Yes, much like BrickSeek was used for other toy items than Lego, PopFindr can be used for finding TFs.
