    2 Siege Impactor and 2 Mirage at Hazel Dell Target (in WA but posting cause it's close enough to Portland). A couple sets of Rainmakers and minibot sets as well.

    They had 1 SS-44 Leader Optimus but be careful if you want it, I have seen in the California sightings thread that registers are denying sales with a "01/01" street date.

    My wife found Mirage for me, not sure if it was Salem or Keizer but she said it was the only one.

    The Siege section in the Albany Target is the healthiest I've seen it in a while. Should have taken a picture for posterity!

    I bought the only Mirage and an Impactor, but when I left this morning there was still:

    1 Impactor
    1 Barricade
    1 Thundercracker

    There was also a Red Alert and some other older figures (multiple Shockwaves, Megatrons, Starscreams, Chromias, one Galaxy Prime). No seeker 3-pack.

    1 Barricade and Mirage at Sherwood Target as of 8:30am.

    BUYER BEWARE!!!! Mirage has a misfired pin for his right fist that cracked the plastic! Do not buy if this bothers you! I was gonna buy it myself until I saw it. Looks like the fist won’t even fold in.

    Cleaned up Hazel Dell Target TF section. What a mess it was in! Took one Mirage. 1 Mirage, 2 Impactors, 2 Rainmakers. 1 DOTM Optimus Prime, no clue if it will scan.

    Didn't think I would be getting a rainmaker set. To be honest, only halfheartedly looked. Then a trip to Goodwill shows a set still in box for 14.99. The packaging had a slice in the clear part of the packaging, like it was on top when someone opened the shipment and used a box cutter. But as a I usually open box kind of collector can't complain for 14.99.

    Which Goodwill was that man? I saw that Rainmaker set the other day at the Salem Lancaster Target. Coincidence? It too has a boxcutter cut from top, slicing the plastic and cardboard packaging. I could have gotten it but I already have a Rainmaker set by the time I saw it.

    It was one in Vancouver. The slice didn't hit the cardboard, but did slice through the plastic. So not sure if it is the same one. If this is the same one it would be hilarious. We know Target drops stuff off at Goodwill, but that would funny.

    You got so lucky man. That's not the one though. The Rainmakers at Salem had a hugh gash diagonally on top, slicing both plastic and cardboard. I have not been at that Target for a couple of weeks now, but last time I was there twice, a week apart, it was still there.

    Reddit posters are saying that Ratchet is in Walgreens in DC, WI, FL, and other places. Any here in OR?

    Oh, I wasn’t super clear! I went last night around 8:00 pm or so. They might get stuff tonight but it seems like most of the stores just got a shipment yesterday. One of the stores I found the Moonstars at yesterday didn’t have anything that morning.

    Haha, thanks man. I actually met up with Kantus at a Walmart looking to see if they had the 35th Anniversary stuff and I picked up the last Ratchet at this Walgreens.

    Walmart at Holgate & 82nd has more TFs than I have ever seen at that Walmart. G1 Soundwave ($50?!) and several cases of Siege Trilogy (35th Anniv.) deluxes and voyagers. Look up on the overstock shelf if you don't see what you want down low. Reflectors, anime OP and Megatron.

    Am I seeing that right? Rachet price tag is $16? Must be mistagged. So far, no Rachets here in Salem area. I checked West Salem and the Northlancaster ones. What I did find were wave 1 SIEGE deluxes and some awesome looking Gundams.
