    Situation sucks, especially given that this happened at Target more than once last year(Spring-Summer) with different Transformers they had sold on shelf since January of that year(SS leaders, SIEGE voyagers).

    Hopefully Doubledealer is on the way to other retailers too, as Target may not be reliable until 9/1 and you never know if they may streetdate it again out of nowhere later this year.

    Agreed, who knows maybe Target will be putting these on clearance once they see these clog up their shelves by then, and if you're a patience person it would be a win for you :p

    No Doubledealer was sighted elsewhere a few days ago but I think whomever found it couldn’t buy it.

    The double dealer I pre-ordered on Amazon shipped a few days ago and will be arriving today. I doubt that Target will wait until September 1st.

    Ah okay. But I did go back to look and I was referring to the recent posts about the battle masters and arcee being found.
    I have seen some folks are getting theirs from Amazon already.
    Crazy about Target and their street dates over toys. 2 months away as well.

    I paid full price for Earthrise Optimus Prime and Astrotrain, but I'm going to hold off on Doubledealer for now. He was never a character in Western animation and I figure he'll show up at discount before long. We are paying for an overpriced Voyager after all.

    Didn't grow up on this character. And nothing about it feels worth $50. So this version will remain:

    I found one at Target this morning, but they still have the WFC Leaders erroneously street-dated for September 1st, so I couldn't buy it :/

    Love he is posed with his hands on his hips like that. Looks like an upset parent. Or a karen who wants to see the manager about that street date.

    I hate crap like that. Sometimes it's a mater of which register you go to. If the front is acting stupid. Just grab another and go to Electronics, Guess Services, etc.
