    That makes no sense. Those toys have been available at multiple stores for months now. Even if there was a street date, it should have passed weeks ago. What the crap?

    What’s the point in him dropping in price, if he doesn’t pop up on shelves?

    Odd that happened with springer, as I got him from target months ago. That very thing happened to me with thundercracker on Friday though. Think I’ll just wait till a BF deal and get him off amazon or something. Really no point in paying full price unless one wanted to have it immediately.

    But why would anyone want to do that?

    Thundercracker is even street dated on Target's website.

    I've seen plenty of waves be street dated but never a whole dpci being pulled like that to release a new wave.

    I picked up Thundercracker this morning from Walmart in Abingdon. He wasn’t street dated there, and there were 2 left.

    Two G1 Soundwaves at the Aberdeen Super Walmart. Siege deluxes were pretty sparse, though I did see a voyager Soundwave on the endcap.

    If you manage to get out that way, All Time Toys does have the new wave of deluxes are retail price. I picked up Impactor today, while I was in the area for work. They still have the rest of the wave there, as well as a couple Omega Supremes, if anyone is interested.

    Oh, and a bunch of Agent Anti-Venom, for anyone who likes the ML stuff too, with the new Endgame wave.

    That’s completely ridiculous. Especially considering I bought that same exact figure from that very store in August with absolutely no street date issues.

    It's the same thing that happened to me when I tired to buy siege springer and thundercracker. They probably street dated the entire dpci instead of just the newest wave.

    Had the same issue. Seems to be a national issue with Target tossing Hasbro products into imaginary street dates, despite selling them prior and/or selling them online. I tried to contact Target about it, but still have no response

    Frederick Target had 2 each of Impactor/Mirage/Barricade. Now it has 1 of each.

    Also a couple of rainmaker and micromaster sets.
