    I usually do the week's grocery shopping at Target on Sunday nights, so I'll look for him. Have a $5 gift card I've been saving.

    Same here. Tried to scan a starscream and a megatron. Wouldn't sell any of them. No wonder brick and mortar stores are hurting when they have products on the shelves they refuse to sell. Even 6 month old figures are locked out because they share UPC codes.

    It’s just strange for figures in the middle of the line are street dated. I can see the initial line release but a wave 3 Voyager makes me scratch my head

    I believe they are just trying to have new stuff be available for the seasonal resets. Nothing sucks more than to go to a target and see they’ve mod everything around, but it’s the same peg warming crap. I do t agree with their tactic, but I understand it. They want to fair as best they can against online retailers.

    Was at the hip target yesterday eventually jetwing optimus prime was street dates for 01/20? They couldn't sell it to me, but yet other retailers have him for sell already? Does that make sense to anyone? This is the second time it's happened to me. Target needs to release them even when their on the shelf for sell.

    Found Mirage, Barricade, and Impactor at the Aurora Walmart off butterfield rd. Also wanted to see if someone would be interested in a Siege Smokescreen box never opened. Just looking to get my money back so $22. Let me know. Thanks

    Wow, I was at Shiloh Target literally yesterday evening and didn't see Impactor or Mirage. I seem to be missing the Wave 4 Deluxes like a ship passing in the night, LOL. Meanwhile I see Thundercracker at practically every Target or Walmart I check, so there's that at least.

    They must have restocked overnight. I didn't see any Barricade so someone was there before me... XP

    Now if only I could get my hands on Ratchet, Smokescreen, & Bluestreak I'd be a really happy camper! Feels like the rest of the world got them before (if) we will ever see them locally!
