    This set is clearly a way Hasbro tried to get rid of their poor quality production. yes... most kids targeted probably already had individuals of them already. And yet these are marked up to begin with to waste retailer's shelf space. I shall make some post-it and put some on them ; "best deal if 70% off".!!

    Saw these at my Target too. About 8 of them


    I can only imagine some kids telling their parents to look for the yellow Worlds Collide 4 pack for them, and getting disappointed when the parents bring this one home instead

    Walnut Creek Target had one Kingdom Magnus and not much else. The collector section did have NECA Mondo Gecko and 2x Mutagen Man.

    Pleasant Hill Target had a few more Magnus and T-Wrecks. For NECA, there were 3-4 Mutagen Man.

    also i guess no one from us hit the case at SF target west... the deluxe case must have landed between last Sat to Monday ; so only 2 wheeljacks remained since.

    They are literally my last resort. I will pay slightly more and get it elsewhere if I can before I give them money

    Must’ve missed the Wreck-Gar; didn’t see it anywhere there. The four Thrusts are still there, if anyone wants them.

    Sorry for the untimely report, but as of 11am this morning, the Valencia Target had one each left of commander Rodimus Prime, leader T-Wrecks, and BB Bumblebee Origins. Good hunting!
