    Yeah, there's going to be two of them soon. I bought it a few weeks ago, haven't opened it yet, and am going to return it... 10 bucks extra is definitely not worth it for an immobile plastic head.

    Peculiar incident today. Bought the 6" Titaniums at Minneapolis NE Target.

    Prime was 4.99, Megs was 14.99.

    Needless to say I returned Megs promptly.

    If anyone is looking for Quickmix, there's one at the Minnetonka TRU.

    I picked up WWPrime and Megatron at Shakopee Target today during lunch.

    In a moment of hypocrocracy so complete and so undeniable that I am not even ashamed (like I should be), I became tantalized by the pricing error and rushed out to Eden Prairie Target at lunch to pick up one of each. All I found was two Megs, both with package damage. So, I drive way the heck out to Shakopee and find them both, each at a cool 4.99.

    Did I actually save anything after gas and time is factored in? Maybe a little. But, I must admit, there's a nice *high* in A. a successful hunting expedition and B. sticking it to "the man" on a pricing error.

    Thanks for the heads up and happy hunting. Oh, the only notable thing at either location was Primius' with no Unicron heads and a Soundwave at Shakopee. I haven't seen many soundwaves.

    As of 5:30PM on 8.3.6 there was an Alternators Optimus Prime and Camshaft at the Robert St. Target. I bought the Mirage. Go get the other ones before Scalper McLaren does!

    Isn't that Target on Robert St. WEST St. Paul? I used to live close to that Target (well, the old one that got demolished for the current one) and worked at a Hollywood video over there, and everyone referred to that part of town as West St. Paul. South or West, it's a shithole either way.

    Yeah, Target's website says it's West St. Paul. Sorry about that. I always use South St Paul and West St Paul interchangably because I don't know where one starts and the other ends. Did someone get that Alt Prime and Camshaft?

    Target has cought the Titanium price problem, I found them at the Maple Grove Walmart and they rang up normal, but since they had the shelf tag that said $4.99 I complained and got it for that.

    Ah, not even worth it to drive there from Blaine :( 

    Still nothing at either the Northtown Target or the Blaine Suger Target. But they have enough Skids to open their own Scion dealership.

    Alright guys, I'm visiting family in La Crosse and looted the Target for you all!

    First of all, scored an Alt Camshaft for myself. I didn't even know he was really out yet! Now I have three guys (Prime, Mirage, Camshaft) to open...

    I'm still holding an Alt Prime for Shin. However, the Target here had a Mirage and another Prime that I picked up. I'll sell them for like $21.50 or $22 cash (to include the tax) each to anyone who posts in this thread (no scalpers) and is willing to pick them up at my house or job in St. Paul. PM me for details -- first come, first served!
