    Hi, hope I’m doing this right I am new on here. Discovered both of the new voyager class figures at Target in Modesto CA last night. I picked up the Starscream (great figure) and my friend got the Grapple.

    Yet the Targets here have zero ER figures.

    Probably will be soon. EE had Soundbarrier in stock briefly and sold out quickly.

    wish I could order him off of amazon, I had my pre-orders put in on the first day like 6 months ago only to have them cancel my pre orders a few months later , they did that to me to three of the four earthrise figures I ordered

    Most Target stores in my area are still sitting on Siege and older waves of Studio Series. In fact I have yet to even see the SS wave that includes 2007 movie BB, Soundwave, etc., because Drift and whatever the figures were from the wave just before are still warming pegs. In other words, I have a feeling it's still going to be awhile before many Target's will stock Earthrise because they still have plenty of Siege.

    Once Target does stock this wave though, Grapple's going to make it VERY easy to spot!

    I think that’s what surprised me the most. I actually have been searching YouTube for reviews of him almost daily, and even looked shortly before my target trip. That green logo box absolutely shocked me and I had to double take. I was almost convinced it was really siege Starscream. (He was even right next to a siege thundercracker)

    most of the targets around here are still barren with just the peg warmers left. Lots of shockwaves.

    cool little note, the classics null rays fit this Starscream as well. And looks pretty good other than a color mismatch.
