    Last time I checked Richfield isn’t anywhere near Duluth.

    I am on the hunt for that clone two-pack. Doesn't look like they are in the cities yet. If you guys see one on the North side please give me a shout-out.

    Hey, no, I'm just relaying info I read in another forum from someone else. But if I see them in the wild I can post the sighting in here.

    I hate that Target's website and app aren't up to date. It says the 2 pack seekers are available at Richfield, but depending on which one you use, you get different locations. Worse part, they actually aren't even there. So that was a waste of time to drive out there.

    According to PopFindr, Eagan has 1/Richfield has 5/IGH has 1.

    My guess? Eagan put a box out this morning (they didn't have anything when I was there last night and the price tag was turned around) and the 5 at Richfield likely mean they're in back and someone asked the employees to pull one out.

    I can't speak for IGH.

    Of course, I also haven't been personally following stock for these guys. So it's possible they were already in back in Eagan yesterday and people have been asking them to go in to the back already. (I think they're 2 per case, which would also fit with Eagan and IGH being smaller than Richfield)

    I went to Richfield earlier and talked to an associate. He said those were showing in stock due to a computer error. They were aware of the problem and trying to fix it.

    Blaine Target off 109th has four Hoists, couple Ironworks and one Wheeljack. One each of Smashdown and Soundbarrier.

    I found the endcap with tags for the seeker and clone two-packs but the cupboard was bare...

    Good to know. Sounds like you were far from the first to ask.

    I saw another MN member walk by me so fast on my way out, he didn't even see me!
    A friend of mine grabbed me a 2 pack off an endcap in Hudson tonight...so I'm all set, but I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for the rest of the gang.

    A friend shipped me a 2-pack from California a couple of weeks ago, but I had put a set on hold at the Hudson store for ServO when I saw they were available earlier this week. Since he's taken care of now, it's up for grabs for anyone willing to drive out there as I should be able to specify an alternate pick-up person. Hit me with a PM if interested.

    I didn't see it for myself, but a friend told me that there's 5 2pks on the endcap at Richfield Target.

    Rest assured, I already visit Richfield hot comics pretty regularly. It's where I've been picking up all of the current IDW transformers comics. Great place, I've even taken my girlfriend there several times.

    Blaine Target on 109th has lots of ER Starscreams and Grapples. No two-packs.

    There were two Skywarp/Thundercracker 2-packs at the Minnetonka Target this morning around 11:00. I did not buy one.

    They also have Starscream, Grapple, Astrotrain, Prime, Cliff, Random Oil Rig Thing Guy, Hoist, Wheeljack and Rung.
