    Lol. You say that but I worked at target and that never occurred to me.

    So, I don't post lack of findings often because I literally check the same store (Daytona Target) every single day for the past 3 months now. However, my store as well as the Port Orange one did receive the Saucer bee case and it is nowhere to be found. I had people I used to work with whom I trust look around for it and came up empty. It shows the case came in on Wednesday, doesn't have a backstock location, wasn't sold, and isn't anywhere on the shelves. Complete mystery.

    Also, if anyone is still trying to use their circle toy coupons, today is your last day to do so...

    P.S. Pokemon cards, Magic etc count as toys.

    Lol. Who the hell is gonna buy that figure at a mark up? He is available online still, I feel that he will shelf warm into clearance.

    I dont feel like going out today but I probably will. Based on the target app it seems a lot of stores have the Saucer bee, and T-Wrecks.

    I posted links in another thread but here you guys go:

    Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee War for Cybertron Deluxe Origin Bumblebee

    Transformers Masterpiece

    Transformers Studio Series 76 Voyager Transformers Bumblebee Thrust

    Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Worlds Collide Multipack

    Update: Bee is already out of stock and the 4 pack I dont think ever went in stock.

    You’re a lifesaver! Thank you! So tired of my Target’s BS.

    Reset is tomorrow at Target. I checked my two local (Daytona/Port Orange) stores again, hoping someone would find for me the Saucer bee in the back but no luck. Employees are too busy to go searching through pallets, it is tax free weekend for back to school stuff.

    Not a sighting and don't know if he was available already, but just ordered MPM-12 from the Target app. Should arrive a week from tomorrow, assuming Target doesn't arbitrarily cancel my order.

    Nothing new at Largo, Pinellas, or Gateway again. Largo and Pinellas still have 3 T-Wrecks figures each, but I saw a lot of carts with boxes out so the reset is slow-going but it is happening in the St. Pete/Clearwater area.

    Kendall Target has 3-4 T-Wrecks, but not in the TF section. There’s a large square empty area adjacent to the toys section, and they’re on an end cap.

    Target on Aerial Way in Brooksville has 4 T-Wrecks.

    Man, the TF sections in my area have been freaking barren lately. This is literally the first restock of just about ANYTHING I've seen in like... a month.

    So tired of hearing about this mythical "reset" at Target. Its becoming like the q-anon of Transformers collectors. There is no "reset". Its just the street dates are all coming around the same period causing people to think Target conspired to empty their shelves before they fill them up again nationwide on a certain date. Thats a load of BS. Target just gets stuff when they get it. Some stores adhere to the street dates, others dont. If there was a great "reset", it wouldnt just be Transformers. You wouldnt be seeing all this He-Man and Superhero stuff being placed on the shelves all the time while the Transformers section stays purposely bare. Just follow your DCPI's and youll be fine. There is no reset conspiracy. Please lay that word to rest already. Its getting so stupid.

    lol

    Retail stores really do have modular resets multiple times a year. Sometimes specific aisles, sometimes entire departments. Not really a conspiracy.

    I'm pretty certain Target will do a reset soonTM, but I unironically love everything you said. Maybe I am just the Q equivalent Transformers collector. I'm gonna sow a big R on my shirt next time I go to Target.

    I literally overheard two Target employees talking about a "reset" this morning while they had pallets full of boxes out on the floor and were stocking shelves in the toy section. Target employees on the boards discuss it frequently. Let's curb the q-anon analogy, alright bud?

    As far as actual, relevant sightings go Clearwater has T-Wrecks on an endcap next to Lego Marvel What If Hydra Stomper and they have a fresh case of the Ursa Major ML wave. Park Street also has the ML wave, full case.

    Walmart on Gall Blvd Zephyrhills is all kinds of fucked up. Some toys are moved by hardware and the rest by garden center. Nothing super new except Grindor. Other than that? Same crap different week.

    2 T-Wrecks left at Forum Target. They look to be in the middle of their toy section reset but I didn't see any Transformers cases ready to be stocked on their carts.
