    I got an order in on the instock Thrusts. Meanwhile my preorder is on backorder. So, yeah. Protip: If you get the alert and go, and it fails to check out, it will put it in "Saver for later." And you can add it to your cart from there. Keep clicking the button to do it when the sporadic instocks are happening and it will go through eventually before it says instock again.

    I'd like to sign up for in-stock alerts for Thrust, but unfortunately Target isn't giving me the option.

    Had it in cart and it sold before I could confirm checkout...kept trying to add from the save later. Finally let me add to cart and I got checkout. Sent an email confirmation about 10 minutes later. Was scared it was gonna get cancelled. Hopefully it ships and I can be done with Earthrise and these ridiculous exclusives.

    087-16-2144 is Warpath... Wether or not the inventory numbers are accurate? YMMV

    Searching the website brings up a listing for Thrust but not Runabout, searching the in-store computer brings up a listing for Runabout but not Thrust...

    DPCIs for individual figures will not work for checking store inventory. They track stock by assortment, not by individual figure (other than for exclusives like Thrust that aren't part of an assortment).

    So they’re selling new orders for Thrust but not fulling preorders yet? Not cool Target. Not cool.

    on a different note, I got my Warpath preorder today.

    Target may be throttling it. When Siege first started Brickseek completely stopped working for Target for any Transformers, at least in my area. Every number always showed either zero stock or product not found (even when I knew they were there). And I noticed that on the Target website damn near every Transformer now said "not sold in stores". So they basically stopped reporting any kind of inventory on them. So maybe now they've wizened up to popfindr too.

    Found Thrust at Target this morning. My PO is still backordered, and Brickseek and Popfindr showed no stock in my area. They had a Kingdom Prime too. Megatron was nowhere to be seen. No signs of anything besides the leaders.

    True, but you can use them to look for them on Target's app or website, and you can also order them that way.... Its not all about brickseek and popfindr....

    So does anybody think that thrust will be easier to get further on like other exclusives im new to this so, like does it go out of stock at first instantly or?

    Most Target exclusives have a period of at least a month or so where they're easily obtainable in-store or on the website, after the initial rush dies down.
