    Woke up to an unnecessarily large Target box on my porch today.

    Seriously, why? Oh well. It was stuffed full of bubble wrap so my Rainmakers weren't bouncing around in there.

    Also the tracking on this package said it came from Anaheim, CA. But the invoice says it came from Indiana.

    So glad to finally get these fuckers in hand after waiting for what feels like an eternity.

    It always says that. Companies use one address as their "return address"

    Mine will say that while coming from PA, i'd bet.

    Mine should be arriving today. This is exhibit A in my addiction. I think they’re objectively ugly toys and lazy repaints and yet here I am. I’ll probably buy Redwing too when I can.

    Target exclusives, everyone! And then some will say, "oh if they're not exclusives we wouldn't get them at all." Ummmm.

    I ordered mine on Thursday when it said out of stock somehow. I thought it was weird I was able to ship to store but I switched it to ship to home and it worked. I have a tracking number so that's good. I guess I broke target.

    Theyre coming to all stores still. Just give it time. Its on stores planograms. Stores in my area just started getting them in thursday. Can't send stores product you don't have. They likely hadn't/haven't gotten everything from Hasbro.

    Reminds me of the a Prototype Vader situation with Target. The figure went up at like 2am on the July 21 with no limit and sold out in seconds. To add insult to injury Target had this on their blog Fans Won’t Want to Miss These New, Exclusive Pop Culture Collectibles Coming Soon to Target

    On August 2nd a buddy of mine went to target and didn’t find the Vader’s.One store in New Jersey got in reportedly 34 of them.

    I sort of hate myself for buying the same toy five times but oh well.

    that darn Vader is going to be the bane of my existence...missed out on the in-stock order this morning because I decided to sweep the yard instead of checking email

    apparently some stores are getting them but I haven't run across them yet

    Thanks!! I've been wondering what the hell that was, apparently I haven't been paying enough attention to what's coming out Star Wars, other than The Vintage Collection, that is.

    I'm still undecided on the Retro Collection, it doesn't help that I've yet to see a single item in stores, other than the Tarkin on the Death Star game.

    Why? These are legit Decepticon troops. They solidly fit into any G1 season 1 Decepticon display. They look great in a Seeker armada.
