    I was unable to locate the DPCI and Price for the Earth mode two pack, I'm going to assume that "MPM 2" will also be sold in stores along with MPM 1 (Starscream).

    I do not have any information as to who MPM 2 will be, though my bet is on Ratchet.

    Also, while I was digging through DPCI listings I did find that Studio Series wave 10 and Earthrise waves 2-4 are all streetdated for the preorder release date on Target.com, so if you find it in store before the online release date you may be unable to purchase the figure in store.

    Cool. Price for Ratchet is exactly what I though it'd be based on that U.K. listing from a few days ago.

    I imagine it'll be a December release. Can't wait for pictures!

    no information on release dates at the moment, I was expecting a streetdate because of the SS and ER stuff but I was wrong.

    DPCI is Target.

    The clones are a Target exclusive.

    Ah yes, of course! It was also already confirmed that MPM 10 would be a Target exclusive in the US.

    I was worried about this. Last time we saw Legends class toys, they were $10 each. It seems Hasbro has decided they are worth more than that now. Considering Target typically sells multipacks at a slight discount over individual costs, I would wager they're valued at $15 a piece now. So, if we ever get Legends figures again, they'll probably undergo a $5 price bump like the other classes.

    So long as no freaking Red Card is needed, I may grab a Starscream. I will also be buying that second MPM, as I also believe it to be Ratchet.
    I'm also fully in on the Skywarp and TC 2-Pack.

    The listing would have included that they are Redcard exclusive, when I looked at Redwings listing there was a restriction on the listing itself, these listings do not have that restriction. I have a feeling that the MPM's will be sold in stores (similar to how Target sells some higher end Lego sets) but I do not believe that they will be sold in every store.

    I like MPs Starscream's jet mode, but not paying $150, these movie tfs have nice vehicle modes, but I cannot stand the movie aesthetics for bot mode. But to those who collect this line enjoy.

    Nice finds. @Notomus keep an eye out for Earthrise wave four listings, of past times are to go by they should be entering or entered in Target’s system soon.

    Nothing to report in Walmart’s system yet that I could find unless they’re of course blocking the listings from the scanners.

    I expect it to be £25 in the UK, even though the equivalent of $25 would be £20.

    I think "Earth Mode" has only popped up as part of the German Amazon 2 pack name.

    The Target 2 pack is "Seeker 2pk" or "Voyager Seeker 2pk" something like that.

    Then you'b be up for a surprise as all online retailers are selling it for 240+ instead of 150 as it should be, that is 100 extra over the original price

    Most likely they have to buy from target and then sell it. Tbh idk who would be dumb enough to spend that much more money, but it’s an option.
