    I think I'm more pissed that my Galvatron is going to cost $53-55 (or more with shipping) now, instead of the $45-ish I had expected (Target RedCard 5% off and portion of coupon applied to order).

    I did get the rest of my coupon applied to Rod/Wingfinger, so that sort-of offsets the higher prices on Tracks & Scorponok from Pulse (Rhinox was the same price). still annoying.

    GameStop has a great sale on Galvatron! $39.99!
    but at the time I'm posting it's marked "not available" :(  what I get for being too busy to come back in here for the last 2 days ...

    The way these restocks go you could've been awake and on the item page when you got the alert and still not checked out in time.

    Honestly at this point I doubt they even have stock when these notifications pop up. What's even worse is that when you try to ask target about it either in the store or through customer support they just say they don't know when it's coming in and to check back every day

    I'd lay money that's how it would have went. Can't count how many times that has happened to me with Leadfoot, Redwing, etc.

    Well, if one piece comes back into stock and a nation full of folks who asked to be notified are, you'd never know either way.

    I have had restock alerts beep on my phone via the Target app and within seconds I go to Target.com to find it gone. I just figured the notifications are on a delay for some reason and go out minutes after the actual restock so by the time I get there, people who have those apps to track website updates already got the restocked items.

    No, I don't think it's apps, I think it's just you are in so long a list of people to be notified by the Target app/website, basically a country full, that by the time it gets to you, it's sold.

    Still, if there are apps that could somehow notify you faster about new online stock than the Target app will, I would like to know about them.

    I think I missed Rodimus at least twenty times within the last week before I finally successfully checked out at 5am on Friday. I was getting impatient waiting on my preorder, so I turned on notifications.

    As I was typing this, I got a notification for Wrecker from Star Wars Bad Batch. He was gone in a second. Same thing is happening with Target exclusive He-Man/Battlecat.

    Well here we go again. At least we know Transformers is confirmed this time and it isn't just a mystery game of wait and see what's up in the morning. Presumably this is going to be Road Rage but are there any other Target exclusives unaccounted for?: Collectible Toys : Target

    I think we could potentially see a restock on some of the recent exclusives that have been hard for people to find in stores like the World's Collide set and Funko Shockwave. My other bit of wishful thinking would be some of the older exclusives like Leadfoot and Thrust to be available again. Set a purchase limit of 1 and have enough quantity on hand that any collector who was around on the 10th had a chance to buy one. Target came through this summer for GI Joe Cobra Island collectors so I'd like to see Transformers fans get the same this time around.

    I wish that were true (re Leadfoot, Thrust, Redwing, etc), but I don't expect it barring some kind of multipack.

    Hmmm, my order for the Bumblebee 2 pack (Studio Series 24 & 25) now says it's "backordered", yet it's still available to pre-order for September 1. Wait, what?

    Went to Target to get a few grocery items I forgot, stopped by the toy aisle and nearly had heart failure.

    They had two on the shelf, bought one. There's one left at the Broken Arrow Target.

    Weirdly, the instructions have the Studio Series logo on them.

    I've seen literally every recent figure at my 4 local Targets, except the one I'm after, which is the 2pk with SS Dropkick.

    Passed on Kingdom Galvatron & TWrecks, MPM BB Prime, Worlds Collide, and the 2pks with Barricade and Stinger.

    The Barricade 2pks are shelfwarming too. Of course the one I want is getting short packed.

    I really hope these things start showing up online. I don't even feel like I was late to the party on these 2pks considering they were never officially announced. The Target website telling you to "visit stores" with no inventory info about said store, while having no online stock is super frustrating.

    I’m just waiting on SS86 Slug/Slag to finally release. It’s very confusing where some people in the states already have it, and none in other states. I’m sure shipping has something to do with it, but it’s so weird to see such a large shipping discrepancy.

    Not having missed ONE delay approval, my Tracks was just cancelled.

    ...and that was the second order with him on it that was cancelled too - the first was admittedly ALSO due to a glitch on their part.

    Stunning as it is, GameStop has been fulfilling more orders than Target lately, and that's after I've read GS the riot act for screwing up so many of my orders already!
