    Forgot to mention that I went to four Targets today and saw at least 100 of the Decepticon Clone packs on clearance.

    Gibsonia/North Richland shows Thrust in stock on both Target and popfindr, but there was nothing there. They did have 2 each of SS86 Hot Rod and ER Astrotrain. I've never seen Astrotrain in the wild, so I finally got one of them and I also took a Hot Rod. Still one there of each. Hopefully we see some more online restocks of Thrust. I managed to snag the seekers from them during a 4am restock back in the summer.

    Sadly no. Though I probably should to add to my Optimus wall. I’m just not a big fan of the Primes with a sloppy alt mode. I’m selective with what I pick up. Never been a 100% completionist. SS86 line will probably be the first for that.

    At least the fourth time this morning he's gone up, I got mine around 4:45 after missing the 4:00 and 4:30 drops. I'm not signed up for notifications anymore, so there could have been more drops since then. Sold out in seconds each time I saw. If you missed this one there's a good chance there'll be more soon.

    I just grabbed a Thrust, no drama either.
    We’ll see how long it takes to ship...
    Says it’s still in stock too.

    That’s weird - still showing up as buyable for me. Actually, the date just changed from “get it by Jan 8th” to “get it by Jan 7th.”

    I guess maybe Hasbro went to the bottom of the Pacific and got the containers that fell off that one boat and had all the Thrusts in it. :rolleyes:

    I also managed a Thrust order. Did one for store pickup at my local target and went back and did one for shipping as a backup as I’m almost certain the pickup will get cancelled. Mine said 1/7 as well for delivery.

    EDIT!!! My store pickup is actually ready! Whaaaaat??

    Since the GI Joe boards on tfw2005 are useless nobody ever helped anybody Warrington target has at least 5 more fireflies. I passed some kid who's being bad was all smudged up where they were and he said that they were a glitch and we haven't had any since the 28th of last month. So either he's a very confused young man or other bad things I'll try not to say. I went to the tablets they have in the store and confirm that there was six or more in the store. I asked someone else working on a planogram which I didn't really want to bother add after showing him the number he came back with a single one. Didn't put them out on the floor though I notice. But my guess is there's at least five left and if you ask the right person they'll give it to you. No Transformers dimension the whole section is very very bear

    In all seriousness do another one and cancel your original

    Swung by Neshaminy Target earlier and they had the Buzzworthy Bumblebee stuff - the deluxes and the Bumblebee/Spike.
    Also had the 2 "armor" guys (Megs and Bee) - aren't they just repacks of the previous ones from Cyberverse?
    They had 4 MP Bumbleebees too. Guess they still had more after Ross got them a couple of years ago?

    OOF! Seriously? I went over there last night because it showed in stock on the website and Popfinder. I got there to find bare shelves so I asked someone. She pulled it up on her tablet and it showed several in stock, but since they weren't out she said it must not have updated and they had nothing in the back. What a waste of my time.

    Ahh, the old "It must not have updated" line... If there were 4? No way it "didn't update." They just don't want to go look for it.
    I still believe Target is using a 'staging area' to get around having to go look. "Well, it's not showing in the back, and it's not on the shelf - so it must not have updated..." w/in 48 hours: boom, it's on the shelf. It's happened to me 3-4 times in the last 6 months or so.

    Cheltenham Target had some Deluxe Kingdom figures. Took Blackarachnia with me. There was no Warpath. 3 Core figures to but I left those.
