    Yeah, with my situation it actually looked like the person I talked to actually gave a crap. Maybe it was just a mix up or something in how it ended up back on the shelf. Also, if you don’t mind me asking, which Target did you find that Shockwave figure swap at?

    Went there this afternoon and found one Cliffjumper and three Ironworks. Took the Cliffjumper and one Ironworks, so it's just the two Ironworks left. Think at least one Astrotrain was still there.

    Saw an Astrotrain at Addison Mall Target this morning as well.

    C2E2 Was stellar! Saw boxed G1 Overlord and Star Saber (for +1000$) plus displays with flametoys and other high end figures as well. Well worth it for a toy hunt.

    Earthrise Voyagers at Elston Target in Chicago this morning! Go go go go go

    Especially if you want Starscream because theres only one of him left. Man, getting two Voyagers for the price of one during this week's sale is really hard to beat.

    Found Earthrise Astrotrain (In Earthrise Packaging) at Bolingbrook Target on Thursday night. But there was nothing else new there, and I snagged the only one.

    There were two Earthrise Leader Optimus Primes at the Target on Touhy this morning at about 11:30. After much waffling, I decided to pass on it for now. Trailer aside, it's too close to Siege Prime for paying full price. Will probably happily pick it up if it gets discounted.

    hope a lot of earthrise gets stocked after this b1g1 50% off is done at target. siege is still overflowing at most burbs stores so Im hoping they are using that promo to do some shelf clearing.

    Got a Soundbarrier at the Chicago Target on Larabee, however, I took it out of a box sitting on a stocking cart, so I don't know if the rest of them made it on to a peg. Judging by the Siege Battlemasters still left, I would guess not.

    But they are making it into the city!

    As of last night at around 7:30pm, at Best Buy in Normal: 1x Ironworks, 1 of each ER voyager, and 2x Astrotrain (I took one Astrotrain, the other one should still be there if anyone wants it)

    yeah thanks for the heads up bud. was able to score ER leader prime and voyager grapple at lake zurich bestbuy. they have a grapple and astrotrain left.

    also had a marvel legends special black storm if anyone is looking.

    checked arlington heights and schaumburg bestbuys too, they had the shelf tags out but no toys. happy bestbuy hunting all!
