    This has been the most useless 30% off sale I have ever seen at Target. My Targets have almost no generations or Studio Series Transformers stock (other than that one box of Blasters I found), and nothing is available online. I almost bought Bouldercrash when one popped up on the app...but I didn't feel like loading up a cart with $35 to save $3. Meh.

    Q1 is usually dry for toys anyway, but every year it gets a little worse

    I am wondering how much of this is demand and how much of it is resellers. I was hoping wheeljack and blaster would both hit 70% off lol

    Not everyone is so fortunate. I wanted to trade this one for a Wheeljack, but have so far been unlucky. And that $40 is including shipping, so don't even pretend like I am making a huge profit here.

    You're probably taking a loss, unless you got the 30% off

    I did. If it isn't sold by Saturday, I'll just return it to Target to avoid taking a loss.

    Had to go to Target today and decided to check the toy aisle for shits and giggles. They had seven SS86 Blasters and five Origins Wheeljacks on the shelf. Bonkers how the stock is so inconsistent around the country.

    How is this not a post from last year?

    So far I've managed to get Wheeljack, Blaster, SS Gamer Starscream, SS Scrapheap x2, SS Sunstreaker, and SS Sideswipe for the 30% off deal. All found at 2 Targets closest to me, except Wheeljack which was a return/rebuy price adjustment from my online order. Pretty good success overall!

    FWIW, I grabbed Origin Wheeljack at a local Target for the non-sale price back on April 1st. I chatted with a Target web rep about an hour ago and they were happy to issue me a gift card for the difference between what I paid then and the current sale price. It was pretty painless and easier for me than driving down to the store, jumping through the hoops, and driving back.

    I'll probably swing by a couple different Targets tomorrow morning. If I find an Origin Wheeljack, do want me to grab him for you (for whatever the sale price comes to + 6.5% sales tax + USPS Priority or Ground shipping)? I've already got two KD Blasters, don't need an 86 one in trade too, sorry.

    If you can, it'd be greatly appreciated. I will pay you for it on Friday.

    Haven't seen Wheeljack around me yet. No signs of Silverbolt or Tigerhawk, either. Plenty of Blasters, though, as well as SS Gamer Starscream and SS106 Optimus Primal. Saw a couple of SS86 Gnaw reissues on Sunday, but they were scooped up pretty quickly. Also, plenty of Legacy:United wave 1 core and deluxe class to go around.
