    Camillus shows Limited, everywhere else within 75 miles shows Out... o_O  (Cam is about 65, not going that far in this situation :D  )

    Has anyone tried calling over there to see if they actually have it?

    I’m shocked that with the intensity of the fans that hang here nobody has yet to confirm the 3 pack or mm pack being in stock or not

    Just called Clifton Park, they say they don't actually have it and that none of the area stores show any as being in stock either.

    Not sure if they really knew what they were talking about, or if they were just straight lying because of a street date or whatever.

    I’m guessing it’s a street date issue. Odd that Saratoga & Camillus are at limited stock though.

    Forbidden planet is also overpriced.

    Midtown comics is your best bet for finding things but YMMV

    Just grabbed two from Saratoga, one for me one for Mr. Dangler.

    The rumors are true boys.

    On the shelf or did you have to ask for the stock room?

    Thanks. I’ll probably have to wait for New Hartford to actually put them on the floor. They’re notorious for not getting anything from stock for you.

    Very nice repaint. The only drawback IMO is the cannons being black instead of red. Still glad to have it in my collection though.

    Found a rainmakers set at Spring Valley Target. An employee went into the back to find it for me but they do have it

    Just some info, the Poughkeepsie target SAYS they have the rainmakers but they do not have it. I came hear earlier at around 11 but was told to come back in a few hours because they had too much in the stock room to go through (which I believed because man, there was a TON of supplies they needed to get out)

    I come back, none, in stock, in hand, in the backroom. The guy checked the device and all. I am livid. 4 hours and 7 dollars of bus fair for nothing....it better fugging show up online, or I'm giving up on the rainmakers....

    Rainmakers at Westbury target. They’re in the messy semi clearance section, not by the regular TFs.

    I managed to claim my Lancer, Shackwave, and 3 Amazon boxsets (I'm surprised I'm going to own the Mirage mold now. Maybe if I like it, I'll grab the retail version as well).

    You know, fate was on my side yetsrerday. If the Rainmakers WERE at the Poughkeepsie target when I was there, I wouldn't of been able to grab Lancer and Shacky. Funny how things go. YOU HAVE MY RESPECT BACK, TARGET!!!

    ….I still think I might resort to online though... Questions on the REDcard. I only have my one bank card, so I have no friggin idea... How does credit/debit work with them? Is it like opening a brand new bank account with Target, or does it connect to the account I already have, so I don't worry about needing to watch the money in two separate occasions?

    I’ll try to help with the rainmaker issue. They come 2 per case so limited stock is 2 or less. They are part of the reset which has no tag yet, so they can’t give it a location. For now they are in back on a random palette till they do the reset.

    So you will need someone to go check pallets. The box is clearly labeled in big letter what’s inside. It is not a normal Hasbro box, no Hasbro label.

    So they target employee will tell u most likely , none in back, none on floor, 2 in hand if brickseek is showing stock.
