    Well I can't say for in-store cuz I can't make it to instore cuz I haz a child that refuses to sleep until 11pm and then needs someone to sleep with her. On the weekends it's endless kid's birthday parties or some activity involving my daughter. Shit, I barely have time to open shits I do have let alone go toy hunting in-store.

    But, since I WFH, I sit in front of the computer all day and thus, have time to buy shit. We barely even haz enuff time to go grocery shopping. Now, if target.com actually would stock some shit, I'd buy the fuck outta some Transformers. This sale is mostly to generate in-store foot traffic. Useless sale for me. The only time I maybe can go in-store is Friday afternoons were I only work half days. And by that time, shit will be sold out!

    I know, break out the violin...

    Yep. They also had United Animated Bumblebee and Magneous, a couple copies of each of the Evolution wave with Detritus/Shadow Striker, SSGE Starscream, SS-106 Primal and a ton of Earthspark stuff I couldn't care less about. It was surprisingly well stocked. They must have received a few cases of each of the Blasters & Wheeljacks though, shelf was deep with them.

    Man, I went to Target on Sunday and the Transformers section was so barren I was surprised a tumble weed didn't pass through.

    SS106 Primal is shelf-warming hard around me.

    I did my return and rebuy today with target.com price matching for the legacy voyagers. The rep matched the circle price instead of the msrp price on the website. I was pretty sure he was doing it wrong so i told him the msrp prices and he confirmed them so maybe he just didn't care lol

    Oh I hear you friend. My own kid is almost 12 and it just never stops. All good though right? We got kids, we got jobs, we have toys. Can't complain.

    Not sure what I said to trigger your violin story - my only comment directed at you was about Origins Jazz aka Wheeljack in disguise via typo. :D

    Again, results not typical. In any event, my Blaster will be back at Target Friday morning if it isn't sold/traded before then.

    I believe you have 90 days to return, 120 if purchased with a Red Card.

    I know. I just don't need it and only got it for trade bait for a Wheeljack, which so far hasn't paid off. Plus I just bought a Sandstorm and a Classified Quick Kick today, in addition to Silverbolt and Gears in recent weeks, so the wallet could use some replenishing.

    So are people returning and rebuying stuff that’s still in the return window to get the 30% discount?

    Yes but only had my 86 Blaster pre-order and 3 Cores I saw in store a month ago. This sale combined with Target’s new lower price, circle offer stacking, and 5% Red Card is unbeatable. And then there’s the occasional Target.com price match like Scrapheap listed online for 27.99 and down to 18.61 after discounts which is 47% off! Almost as good as Ross but with new stuff (at least in my area this week which is not always the case).

    Yeah, I was taking it off regular MSRP since the “new Target price” does not seem to be consistent. For example, I bought another Snarl and Optimus Primal for nephews which rang up for $54.99, but they price matched Optimus Primal for $49.99 and did the same for Snarl since it didn’t come up in the app. However, they do share a line item on the receipt. I don’t understand how they manage inventory like this.
