    Just SS & Siege voyagers and deluxes. Maybe leaders?

    Edina target had a couple barricades and other randome stuff but nothing too eye-catching.

    Also you can get a 25% coupon of a single toy by texting TOY to TARGET (whatever numbers that might be). I think it goes until the end-ish of November.

    SS Rampage on Clearance ($15) near the front of Eagan Walmart. Guessing most of you have that one, but might be worth checking out stores near you if there's SS Voyagers you're hunting.

    (Rochester)

    Walgreens (North?, by Barlow Plaza)
    Has one WFC Ratchet left. Box is great condition, there were two and I took one. It is in the isle near the checkout, look for Hound and Prowl. If you don't see Ratchet someone beat you to it. (10-31-19)

    Man they're always like 2 weeks behind... but I just got a raise so maybe I'll check out that bluestreak :D 

    Ended up running to richfield Target (still looking for s3 botbot 8-packs. They're the ones with the orange blind packs, if anyone sees them).
    Since I was in high spirits and had that 25% off coupon, I picked up Jetwing Prime...

    And he was STREET DATED FOR 1/1. ><

    Called the cashier over, and explained that I collected TFs and I knew he had been out since at least august and that we've been running into that with transformers lately. She apologized and said they couldn't break street date but would hold the figure for me until 1/1 since that's what they offered the last person who ran into that problem. I politely explained that that would normally be fine, but my coupon expired at the end of November and that was really what was drawing me to it.
    She apologized and said she'd ask her supervisor to come over. He came over and explained street dating and I told him that I knew but showed him that it was in stock on a couple other sites. He was like, "Well... since you're being cool about it and don't wanna lose the coupon, I'll just enter another DCPI. Is that okay?" I told him I really appreciated him going out of his way for me, and he tried leader megs (which also came up as street dated), and then was like "Well, I'll try this one that's $5 less" (Galaxy Prime) "because you've got that coupon and you've been really nice about it." That one worked, so I walked out with a $33 Jetwing prime. I'm cool with that. :D 

    Bein' chill works wonders, my dudes.

    Wait DotM Meg is street dated? I got mine at Target months ago without issue.

    What the heck is going on? Did they somehow get the wrong memo and give them the Scavenger/Shockwave date?

    I guessing he came up as street dated since he's packed with Jetwing, isn't he?

    I love that the supervisor's solution with the dcpi is just the same thing people were doing with Springer.

    That only works when the employee isn't a total ass-hat about it and will actually talk to you about the issue. The last time I dealt with a street dated thing that had already been out for months, the employee quite literally snatched the figure out of my hands and walked away. I said "excuse me ma'am...EXCUSE ME..." but nope, they just kept right on a walkin' like I didn't exist.
    Eff them, and their street dating nonsense...like seriously, it's ridiculous.

    Yeah, but at least it seems like the stores are starting to recognize it and work with people. Bummer it took so long but at least we can suggest the DPCI thing without having to do a whole song and dance.

    They’ll probably have to fix it once parents start trying to buy Christmas presents. That’s gonna be a cluster.

    Black Friday could be a shit show if it's impacting enough stuff.

    I’m gonna grab some popcorn and hang out by the registers. It can’t be worse than watching Love Island.

    Vadnais Heights WalMart has the 35th anniversary figures. Picked up Bluestreak and Optimus prime. If you are looking they are not in the general toy area. They are up front near the registers in the seasonal section. I went back to the toy area at first, couldn't find them then loaded the app, and it was helpful. I was a little shocked.

    Either it was that one store or it's been fixed, but I was able to buy Jetwing Optimus without problem at the Downtown target store. There was still one on the shelf and two DotM Megatrons left.

    Anyone interested in a complete, loose, 2007 Leader Prime in good condition? I'm out of space and he needs a good home...
