    Was able to get Rodimus at $59 plus the 25% off = $45. Looks like he’s back to 84.99 after midnight

    also MPM Optimus arrived a few days ago but box has annoying dent in the front. The matrix was rolling around int the box too. Horrible packaging for a premium figure

    I've only ordered a few toys (non-Transformers) through Target and the same has happened to me. I really only ordered through Target recently for Draculus since there's a deal since one of my figures came chipped up back in August. Can't say for sure, but the box was dented too, so may have come from being handled too roughly by Target. Other figure was okay but the blister plastic was cut open with dents on it, like it had been slammed down maybe. That figure itself wasn't damaged though.

    It’s funny because I have returned an item in the past where I used my circle rewards and the rewards were added back to my account. There wasn’t a notification or a record of it but I kept an eye on my account and sure enough the $5 and change was credited back. The customer service rep said I wouldn’t get it back which is why I was monitoring. Is everyone 100% that the rewards didn’t get loaded back?

    Interesting. I have never received any rewards back.

    yeah most of the Target online purchases end up getting returned because of the poor boxes and dents. I prefer to buy in store

    My two Dracula’s just arrived, and they crammed it into a small box. Luckily I’m careful when I open shipping boxes and lifted the tip flaps up. Otherwise I would have sliced through the front of the Dracula box

    I ordered mine separately. One came in a big box. The other came in a small box just big enough for the toy packaging, within a bigger box. Both in good condition.

    went to several Target stores in Houston, not much to buy. i have most of the TF stuff, only thing I saw that I still need were Gnaws. Still haven't found any Sweeps. Saw plenty of Kingdom Waspinator, Galvatron and Megatron, and SS86 Slug, Jazz, Blurr, and Kup.

    hardly any new Star Wars stuff.

    Distribution is so uneven. I regularly go weekly to my local Walmart/Target in south Atlanta. I regularly see Gnaw, Sweeps, slug, Kup, Blurr, BW Megatron, Waspinator, and Shadow Panther. Out of my dozens and dozens of trips, I’ve only seen Galvatron once.

    I like how whenever I give a Target employee a DPCI for a figure I’m looking for, their website decides to just switch it to another one, so it’s impossible to keep track of stock.

    So what's on sale until the 25th? Is it just Kingdom? If not I might grab another Sharkticon or origins Bee...

    Not a sighting, but might be helpful! So you know when you pick a figure and do the drive up/pick up and it cancels it because it wasn't actually there? If you go into your orders to the canceled figure you select "change delivery option" and it will ship it to you for free, even without red card or spending $35. I just did this today and had no idea it was a thing, things get canceled on me so much, I'm excited I learned about it.
