    The Target in Brighton has 2 HA Roadbusters with the revised deco, along with:

    x1 Generations Warpath
    x1 Generations Wheeljack
    x1 Generations Kup

    and also new DOTM Deluxes:

    x1 Cyberfire Bumblebee
    x1 Specialist Ratchet

    And I think about 3 Ultimate Primes. They are mismarked at $42.84. Whoever put them out must have assumed that Ultimate Prime was a Leader class figure. I didn't see any actual shelf tag for the Ultimate Prime figure.

    It also looks like they restocked the shelves with wave 1 Voyagers. They had Optimus, Ironhide and Megatron, along with some of the Target exclusive voyagers.

    I've been to 4 different Toys R Us looking for Rodimus with no luck. Madison Heights, Sterling Heights/Shelby Township area, Pontiac, and the one by Macomb Mall.
    On the plus side, I picked up an HA Roadbuster at the Target across the TRU in Sterling Heights/Shelby Township. There was one Roadbuster left as of Thursday. They also had Ultimate Prime there.

    Ann Arbor TRU had 4 MP Rodimus Primes today. They were gone in about 30 minutes. I went in, there were 4. Left 3. Came back about 30 minutes later and grabbed one for a friend, it was the last one. Glad I had those 20% coupons.

    hell yeah they gotta honor the price tag price on the box. Shelf tag or not. I would of snatched them both for trade ppurposes since I don't care for it and am passing it up. Think im just sticking to human alliance for the rest of the film toys and leader megs if it happens.

    I called one store Wed & asked for them to look up what stores in the region may have them. At the time, Muskegon, Saginaw & Novi, were in transit. I picked up mine Thurs morning from Novi, when they opened. The manager there said she was surprise they got them before Southfield. But then said, being a limited release, only select stores might get them.
    I've heard Southfield gets a truck Tues & Fri. But I could be mistaken. If they have one when you call, ask for them to hold it for you.

    My wife just gave me permission to buy some if they're still that price, when we go out that way on Tuesday. (probably not, but hopeful)

    Ann Arbor TRU sold out of them in 30 minutes? Ugh. I'll never get a chance to snag a Masterpiece Rodimus.

    Called Jackson TRU last night. Got them to hold a MP Rodimus for me. Picked it up this morning. They had 2 left. Got a free Xhu Xhu Pet and used 20% off Facebook coupon. Don't forget to grab the coupon if you're going over to get him. Good luck!

    Actually, they dont have to honor the price sticker on the item. State law says a retailer doesnt have to sell an item for less than what they paid it. Regardless of whether or not it is marked.

    Hmm...is he really going to be this limited? I didn't realize that Rodimus was a one time thing, I thought he was going to be easier to find than this. It's looking to be a "right time, right amount of money in my wallet" thing. If this truly is the case, I'll never get a US edition.

    I found the Rescue Bots human packs, Okemos TRU had them (i bought them all) but I later found them at the East Lansing and South Lansing Targets.

    I picked up the only Hatchet at the East Lansing Target and the only one at the South Lansing Target.

    I also found a RTS Speed Stars Leadfoot at the Okemos Wal-Mart and a RPM Soundwave at the South Lansing Kmart.

    Pretty good toy haul weekend.

    I'm really hoping it takes Jackson 3 weeks to get Rodimus in stock, I won't be able to justify him till then.
