    Ok, I've been meaning to post this for a while, but with the hoildays and all, I didn't get a chance until now.

    I work at Target, and being the nerd that I am, I took the DPCI from the other thread and did some research. My store(ridgedale) has not gotten Alternatior smokescreen in yet, but I can tell you that at my store, (and I beleive every other store) the set date for the new planogram is Jan. 4th.

    For those that don't know, a planogram is what we use to know where on a shelf to put the items. Smokescreen is suppose to set with this plano, and usually they have all of the product in the store before the set date. So take the DPCI (087-06-0744) to a Target store and ask them to do a location check. I would imagine Smokescreen would start showing up in mass within a week or so.

    Also Target now has a new system at the registers where they can look up any DPCI and see what stores in the area have the item in stock, how many, and how far that store is from the one you're in.

    I can also tell you Smokescreen is going to be in the action figure section, and at least at my store, eight feet in, second shelf up and 4th item on that shelf.

    I also used to work at Toys 'R' Us, and as of Decemeber 18th(yes I know, a while ago) Smokescreen was not even at the warehouse for the Toys 'R' Us stores in this area. And usually once it shows up at the warehouse, it takes about 1-2 weeks to actually get to the store.

    Thats all I got, a little long winded for a first post, but I'm trying to be helpful!

    Could be, but they did have four of them when I got there, so actually the chance of it being from the same case is about a third :p

    I got Alternators Smokescreen!

    I picked him up at the Robert Street Target store in West St Paul. When I saw him on the shelf I immediately thought, "oh, he's just a wittle guy!" Dunno why I was expecting him to be larger. He was in the Transformers section, and they had 2 left after I picked mine up. (He's so awesome!). They also had Energon goodies, including Prime, for anyone that's interested in those things ;)

    As of 3:30 this afternoon Toys 'R' Us in Minntonka had 4 smokescreens in and I think 3-4 Skorponick

    hehe, I need to learn how to spell, sadly my Target store still hasn't gotten Smokescreen, so I got him while I was at Toys 'R' Us.
