    Too early to call me lucky. This happened with Thundercracker/Skywarp when I got there when they opened and was told to come back the next day. Sold out later that day before I had a chance to come back. Looks like they don't have Scorponok from popfinder but I'll check back tomorrow morning.

    Just picked up Scorponok from Target in Alhambra. One left in the back for whomever's fastest!

    I'm only in that area on Thursdays but I doubt he'll last til then. Haven't seen a titan at Target since I found one Fortress maximus at one during Titans Return but it wouldn't ring up so they didn't let me buy him.

    No. I’ve only ever seen Crosshairs and Spinister. The Wave 5 Battlemasters, Micromasters, and Apeface never showed up.

    I gave the DPCI number to the guy at the electronics counter, and he had someone pull it from the back for me. The other one in the case of two was still back there as of 4:30pm.

    Was it 087-16-1984? I typed that into the in-store scanner and it wasn't recognized.

    Skylynx and Scorponok don't seem to show up on the store scanners but work when they type them into their own device.

    Ah, shoot, didn't think of that. The precious plastic could have been right there, within my grasp.

    Huh, that's weird about the in-store scanners. I just plugged the DPCI into Popfndr, saw two in-stock, and then gave the number to the guy in electronics. For once I'm glad the Alhambra Target still has the old scanners where you can't input anything -- forced me to check with an employee first!

    Target is bound to have a 20-25% sale on toys soon so I’m desperately trying to hold off on scrambling for Scorponok until then.

    must.....fight....the urge.....

    I hear you. I did this with Omega last year and saved $32. Worth it at the moment but I know it’s not if you miss it. Between TF, GIjoe, ML, and SW expenses over the next 60 days, if I’m not careful my wife will kill me.

    According to Popfindr, no seeker two packs in my area (Sacramento). If anyone sees one can you please let me know. I didn't want a set at first but now that I preordered the coneheads I will need all of them, thanks

    Had to drive 45 minutes to that store so it was my first time there. There were no sale signs. I just scanned it and it showed 41.98. Brickseek also has that same price for that store. If it was a mistake I'll take it!
