    Did you have to wait for it to come off the truck?

    Target internal system shows La Brea Target and two stores in Hawthorne have Sky Lynx. Also at least one store near Culver City is expecting to get two in tomorrow.

    Man, it was hard to keep myself from going after that Fox Hills Scorponok. But he hit at the worst time for me. I've got boxes from orders and preorders piling up and I haven't had time to open them and put them anywhere, so a new toy the size of a toddler just ain't gonna fly at the moment.

    I'm not gonna make one of those "my wife would kill me" type jokes because we don't roll like that, but...she DOES need to be able to walk from one end of the apartment to the other.

    CA4A42A4-9B89-4280-8B7F-1E611738113C.jpeg Went to a Target close to me and inquired about SkyLynx and was told that they can’t sell it to me until July 26 since their system says it’s in “transition”:cool: 

    ...and off topic, are these GI Joes new?

    New to Target, anyway. Walmart's had them for a couple weeks, and online retailers were shipping them last month.

    Yes, and there is a Hasbro Pulse limited edition Snake Eyes where he comes with an Arashikage weapon display with a bunch of exclusive weapons and an Arashikage art print. Super lucky my friend gave me one of the two he ordered as a birthday present earlier this year. :D 

    Sadly, it sold out very fast and didn't know it existed until sometime in May.

    Oh, looks like Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander, and maybe a Cobra Soldier are confirmed to be coming out soon.

    Just an FYI. The Fairfield Wal-mart has at least six Netflix Transformers Hotlink figures. And a slew of the new Netflix metallic Megatron figures. And the Vacaville Target has one Sentinel Prime.

    I tried to get a Scorponok from a Target that had them tonight but the employee on the floor said they were in “transition” what does that even mean?

    This gentlemen couldn’t explain what that meant.

    It means they're getting ready to reset the toy aisles. I believe Scorponok and Sky-Lynx are apart of this reset so they're likely holding back stock till then. The reset should be July 26 I think

    Same boat. It’s hard to easily sneak a box that size in.

    With the amount of new stock hitting right now across Star Wars, Transformers, Marvel Legends, and Gi Joe, July 26 could be like an 1980s childhood Xmas. This is why I need to save up just for the Fall reset.

    I haven't seen new Star Wars stuff on the shelf since December. I don't think I even need anything from the next couple waves, it'll just be nice to see something besides Rey and Jannah.

    From what I have gathered every target should get 2 sky lynx and 2 scorponok for this reset. So happy hunting

    Yeah they are getting delivered on trucks throughout this week. The store I went to yesterday refused to go get the item from the back. Marked as TE on the devices. In other words just showed up on the truck and hasn't been sorted yet. But when I checked this morning every store around me shows inventory now instead of the just 1 yesterday. But this will clearly be a pain in the ass to get at store.
