    My shoes are sole mates...

    I got Classics Astrotrain. In the mail though. I can't wait to start hunting for the rest.

    What was the dates for those new Target openings again? Second weekend of October?

    Not really a sighting, but my Classics preorder just shipped from BBTS. I got the four-pack with Bumblebee, Starscream, Rodimus and ATrain. I pray they are here by Monday.

    Sorta a lame way to hunt, but I don't want to play games hunting for these...I want them in my hands.

    Anyone have any luck yet? I'm stuck at work for another five hours so I can't go out and hunt.

    Checked the Minnetonka TRU this afternoon, no go.

    Anyone still need a Primal/Megatron 2-pack? I picked one up in their buy-two-get-one sale, might give ya a decent deal on it.

    Also, they have GF Vector Prime and one Alt Prime

    I think the official openings for Fridley, Medina, and any other new targets there may be is oct 11. But there is a quiet opening a few days prior.

    No sign of Classics at either the Target or TRU by Northtown. However, TRU did have Titanium Jetfire and Thundercracker is anyone is looking for them.

    Downtown Target has Alt Rollbar & Ricochet, Cybertron Smokescreen, and the Giant Mini-con & Ransack repaint scouts.

    Gonna take another swing at Minnetonka TRU tonight, see if things have progressed.

    Go Twins.

    Checked Minnetonka.

    If you need GF Vector Prime, woo, TRU's got em. Ridgedale Target has the smokescreen repaint, brakedown repaint, etc.

    Also, for Marvel collectors, they have Luke Cage and Longshot of the Mojo series.

    Good to hear the Mojo series is hitting, I've been itching for the first appearance Iron Man.
    Also in Marvel news, Target downtown has the new wave of mini Marvel figures, I forget what the line is called. They had the whole line, including varients. Yay for grey Beast! :)

    CLASSICS FOUND!!! CLASSICS FOUND!!!

    I am now the proud owner of the first wave of the deluxe classics. I won't go into details of how it all happened, but MANY Targets have these bad boys on the way or in the back of the store. I had the guys at the Eagan (Cliff Rd) Target pull out the case for me and I took one Rodimus, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Astrotrain. They did not have any of Prime or Megatron, but it sounded like Apple Valley had 8, Shakopee had 4, and Northfield had 4. I didn't have her look up a lot of stores because I was just giddy that they had the deluxes.

    It didn't sound like the NE stores had them in stock. I tried to have the woman at the WB&94 store look in the back but she said that they weren't there. Woodbury, Roseville, St. Paul, and No. St. Paul had numbers in the inventory system that sounded to the girl at the counter (and you can believe her if you want, I didn't trust her) that they would be getting them in SOON, maybe with a restock tonight.

    Basically, I had her look up the DPCI numbers for both assortments and they showed up at some number between 2 and 4. 2 makes sense for the Prime/Megatron case but not for the deluxe case. She said that often times the system will show a low number like that just before they get them into the store, which is why she suggested checking tomorrow.

    So, call your Target and I'd say look for stores that have either DCPI number in multiples of 2 for Prime/Megs or 8 for the deluxes!

    Or go to the Eagan store. They still have 1/2 case of deluxes in the back.

    Sad thing is I started school part time at Carlson at the U this fall while still working full time and thus really don't have the time to be looking. I haven't even gotten to open the guys yet because I've been using all my free time tonight working on stats homework! ACK!! :p 

    I should add now that when I called Coon Rapids Costco today they did NOT have the Prime/Saber pack in yet. Additionally, the WB&94 Target must have restocked Alts as well because they had a Prime, Rollbar, and Ricochet.
