Just saw that Manahawkin Target had them in stock today. I guess not anymore...
I went over when popfinder showed 3 in stock. I live a few minutes away and they were gone by the time I got there. Hoping for a restock soon. I need Skywarp.
That's a shame. Someone went and bought them for re-sale.
It's not illegal, but a shame. I often wonder why. If you do free shipping, then fees from both eBay and Paypal, you're making around $15-$20. That seems silly to drop $300 only to possible make a $100 after selling them all.
Dang it.......both Deptford and Mantua are sold out as of yesterday (June 30th) before their actual street date........stupid scalpers......and I can’t do online order/ pick up, as it’s not offered.......I did sign up for the Target Site ID so I would get a email notice when it’s back in stock at Deptford, and Saturday I may try a Target Hunt where I haven’t looked yet (normally I’d go today, but I work till Friday)
Ugh. This is what I hate about collecting, fighting the people who buy a cartload just to re-sell.
Seems so many people have that idea, the price is averaging $100 on eBay.
I plan on Saturday to go to the Targets in my area that are confirmed to carry them......and keep doing this on my day off until I get lucky.......
I got lucky and got one off the Target website today. Actually the app. Advice, keep hitting add to cart, especially if you get lucky and get it into your cart and then it stays in the saved for later thing. I've noticed stock coming in from early at 6:30 today, and then it came in stock through alerts four more times. Don't wait for the alert, spam that button. These will get to you guys, try what I did which is above. And pray.
Why are people buying stuff $50 over? Especially a Target item that you will likely find in store. I guarantee in 2 weeks Target will be swimming with 2packs.
I've tried reminding folks to go back to when the Siege Rainmakers came out. It was the same thing. Exact rinse and repeat.
I think people are scared of being Amazoned like with the Phantomstrike pack. And, yes, Thundercracker and Skywarp are way, way more "necessary" to a collection than the Rainmakers, which are pretty niche.
The other Target pack, the clones... THOSE will likely shelfwarm ultimately.
It's not all scalpers. I got one set from the back at Sewell/Mantua last weekend.
Someone posted a photo of some guy hoarding and running down an aisle. Can't rule it out.
That Amazon exclusive sat for months,O people were waiting for the price to come down. Once it sold out, those who waited for discount panicked.
Still no sign of them at Deptford, and Pennsauken/ Delran (the one on 130) hasn’t even got them yet......and Vorhees was sold out.....
I think Voorhees's stock walked out the back door. Target's site says they have limited stock and popfindr says they have two. So they're either hidden really well, or they disappeared.
Manalapan Target didn't have much new except for a few note worthy items. Mainly, that Quint, Shock, and Prowl 3-pack is going on clearance, Siege Meg's and Thunder's galore, and the Hasbro Ghostbuster figures, the only had Peter btw. Have a good one and stay safe.
Turnersville Target had 5 Decepticon clones two-packs on a back endcap this afternoon. I grabbed one and left the rest.
Haha myst have been right behind you, they had 4 when I grabbed mine, must have been around 4.
Hopefully that clearance is available up here. The local Targets here are overflowing with them.
Thank you for this tip about 6:30am! It took me about a week but I was successful today!
