    How are you guys getting in stock notifications? The option on the target website had been gone for a few days.

    I was using the Target app on iPhone. I’ve long since gotten both the Seekers & Clones, however checking just now, the in stock notification button is still available for me.

    Just checked for the clones and they're currently in stock. Just got them via the app.

    Yep, they've been up most of the morning it seems. Maybe theyre finally gonna stock the rest of the stores and the site will ship from the warehouses.

    Got my clone 2 pack today in a shipping box 10x the size of the box the figures were in. No filler to take up the room. Every damn corner of the box all smashed to hell from flip flopping all over inside the way oversized box. First & last time I'm having them ship anything to my home. Never ever had this issue when I had items shipped to store for pick-up. So much for trying to save myself an hour drive round trip. :mad:

    So there's a fan-mode combiner for these two? I've got them in hand now and wouldn't mind trying that out if it exists...

    Just had a buddy find and pick one up for me here in Vegas. They're started to spread out a bit more, looks like. Hopefully people will begin to have an easier time finding them in stores, or at least that the online orders will get filled out faster.

    I'm happy to finally have both. Only bought the Walgreens pack and never could get the matching members for a decent price. Don't know what to do with those guys, but whatever. Now, on to waiting for the eventual announcement and release of the AUTOBOT Clones to finish this up!

    Update***
    Returned the Transformers with an old receipt and got full price on both of them. Score

    Also was able to order them through a Target app back in stock alert. They actually showed up and looked great.

    While I was out hunting today, look what I found in Chicago. They’re deep, so keep an eye out at your local store everybody.

    Makes sense, the Earthrise endcaps are long gone around here. Targets fuckup with fake street dates has caused a lot of them to pull most of the product off of the endcaps anyway and hungry collectors bought the rest before it even hit the shelves.

    These 2pack CLONES and 2pack JETS are ridiculous NAHDA around here in my area and nothing as you know online to buy. IF ANYONE can help a brother out on these I'd be so grateful.

    Just landed a set of Clones 50% clearance. Brickseek appears to be accurate both in terms of stock *and* price. So if you're hunting for a deal, that's your tool.

    Targets around here are just loaded with clearance. I can't imagine COVID helping. People already not going to stores at a normal rate, people having less disposable income due to closures and job loss.

    On top of that there are a ton of movies getting delayed/cancelled that have toylines that still went to stores. And now with movies getting pushed back later toylines may not even be in production now.

    Target right now seems a bit chaotic as they're racing to find anything to put in stores that'll sell, which is why I think Lynx and Skorpy hit shelves for the first time.

    I was just coming her to mention this. I found two sets at my local Target. Apparently they came off the truck and went right to the clearance end cap. So if you're still looking for these check out where ever your Target puts clearance stuff.
