    Anyone in south side of GA near Mcdonough/Morrow/Stockbridge area that wants to buy new set of Seekers? We meet up nearby.

    I bought 2 packs for myself and I just got another set as a gift from my best friend. If not, I'll just use my paid receipt and return one set back to Target.

    Missed them again. Once again, the alert hit while I was sleeping...

    edit: took a shower, was getting dressed and saw my phone flash. Got it to the cart and hit checkout and gone... missed twice this morning.

    Edit again: another! Got the PIN number in!! And went out again... ugh

    Target ''learned'' after having to clear out so many Seeker 3-packs, and cut their order down considerably.

    Just wondering if that may be the case.

    The alerts are really worthless. Best thing to do is wait about mid-hour from the first then start refreshing until it is back in stock, example 2:00 am alert then refresh 2:30. That is how I got mine. The alert was 2:09 and I got mine a little after 2:30. Also try to use PayPal and be logged in ahead of time.

    Literally makes no business sense. If something is selling this hot you're going to do everything in your power to try to sell as much as you can. If there's any slowdown I'd imagine it's because Target might finally be running low on production stock and might need to wait for more to hit the shores.

    Just received my Seeker pack that a bud picked up for me awhile back and yeah....they're cool figures.

    I actually like these guys as much as my Tetrajet versions, but for different reasons. Also, just like the Tetrajets, please make multiple repaints of this mold please Hasbro. More Tetrajets as well please. :D

    It's too bad Takara will probably sell them as a set. I could see just buying Skywarp if that was an option.

    I wonder if Takara would consider going with the light lavender purple for Skywarp... I would definitely go all in for that.

    I still want a second set. Something really bothers me in regards to the longterm durability of these seekers, like the potential for paint rubbing on the chest clips and also on the wonky crotch plates. It would be nice to have a second set just in case.

    Considering takara doesn't really do their own decos anymore I'd say there's not really a chance of that

    Hey, I’ve been denied at LEAST 30 times I’ve the past couple weeks. I was laying in bed checking this forum when it popped up this time and managed to FINALLY snag one.

    3 just showed up online in a store about 30 minutes away from me. I bought one and will head over there as soon as they tell me it’s ready. If anyone else wants me to get one I will see if the other 2 are available when I get there. It’s $65 with tax, then probably $10-$15 shipping.

    Yeah I've been seeing your frustration trying to get it. I'm still waiting for toysrus here in Ontario to even get one shipment. Probably won't be until September at this rate.

    I'm glad you finally got one .Cheers
