    I just picked up a clone 2 pack from Jordan Creek Target. There was 1 left at 11:40.

    Damn. I was hoping to get one. How many slitherfangs were there and did they pull all leaders off the shelves?

    Went back to the Davenport Target again just now to see if they had the new Cyberverse Arcee (they didn't) but they did have another Slitherfang, about 10x Rungs, a few of the clone 2-packs (on the end-cap facing electronics), and a single seeker 2-pack (also on the end-cap facing electronics).

    On another fun note, ER Doubledealer was back on the shelf. Last time I was turned away for street date stuff another board member literally came in later the same night and was able to buy so I thought to myself maybe DD was fixed and up for grabs so I tried to buy it again......... TRIED. No dice.

    Got a clones set at the Valley West Target, one left on the shelf. There were also 3 seeker sets and a ton of Earthrise. No snek tho.

    If you're planning a trip for the Target exclusives I'd recommend using Popfindr to check availability instead of the Target app/website, it seems to be more accurate for some wild reason.

    Yeah it was another local guy. I assume he just lucked out and either talked to the right person or the system had updated. This was back during POTP I think

    found 3 set of the seeker 2 packs, the clones, and doubledealer at the Moline Target. just a heads up

    P.S: I did acquire a doubledealer you just have to have them ring it up as a leader class unidentified or at least that is what they are doing at moline.

    I stopped by the Moline Target first thing this morning to try for a Dealer but there were none left on the shelves in either the normal spot or on the endcap. Didn't bother asking anyone about back stock.

    Can confirm G1 Astrotrain rings up at $25 at Jordan Creek Walmart. (Won't scan with app/phone, but will ring up right at self-checkout). 4-5 left now. Brickseek says still full price at the 73rd St one.

    Well if they have 2 feel free to buy them both and holler at me. I'll sneak out of work immediately to meet you in a dark alley for some secret robot and cash dealings.

    Tried the dpci 087 16 3984 at Moline. 13 there but no DD even though there were only 4 leaders on the shelves. Hopefully that wasn't the voyager dpci.

    They have 2 Scorps at the Elmore target but aren't selling him until the 26th. This time it isn't a date issue. Elmore is behind the others with shelf space so they don't even have a sticker for the employees to scan/sell with. The worst part is I'll be gone for most of next week so anyone local'll beat me to the punch.

    There's one Skylynx left at Ankeny Target. I snagged one and used the Target circle coupon for 10% off.
