    Our target has had at least 1 on the shelf since this weekend. Still showing limited stock on the website so looks like it's still there.

    Ordered the Rainmakers off of Targets website today. Shipping says Tuesday. We'll see. Free 2 day shipping, so not sure how that means Tuesday. Been in stock on their website for almost a week now. Maybe they ordered more after the initial demand?

    Saw these as in stock at a local Target yesterday. Walked in, two sets on the shelves. Had kind of planned on passing up on this mold, initially, but I'm actually really glad I got these guys...now I'm actually contemplating picking up the original seekers, too, just because I like this tetrajet mode and the transformation way more than I thought I would.

    Glad you got them! As I’ve said before, and it bares repeating, the tetrajet mold is absolutely my favourite in the Siege line. It is a lot of fun to transform and great to finally have official that isn’t the F-15 vehicle mode. HasTak did a really goof job on this.

    Finally saw them at a local brick and mortar store too. Also, their online tracker is now showing pretty much all the local stores here have them physically in stock.

    Yeah after getting Thundercracker the Cybertronian jet modes have grown on me. I may get Starscream and Skywarp at some point.

    It’s a very fun mold (IMO). In my mind, it seems like designing a Seeker mold should be super easy but since 2006 I’ve only had two Seeker molds that I really liked. They’re this one and the original Classics. Thankfully the Classics one can finally be retired.

    Well too me at least,....I'm glad i have the rain maker set. I'm glad in 2 ways with this set and they are

    1. Something that we should have gotten back then in 84'. Just didn't cause of tech and now with today's Tech it's possible to have any figure Hasbro wants to make.

    2. Its a way that Hasbro is rewriting a lost chance back then to today. While also having fun making great characters for collectors alike and that are very niche/comic book marvel characters that really need some kind of updates. This is how I'm seeing it as well making Refraktor a dream come true for alot of guys like myself that always wanted that character but didn't get it. So know we have him updated and in 2 versions in cartoon version and toy version. Thank you Hasbro I'm a fan forever.

    I saw the Rainmakers at Target over the weekend. They look really cool, especially because of the Alt modes, but man... $80 is a bit steep. I don't usually buy figures this line, but aren't the seekers $20 to $25 each individually in the Siege line?

    Either way, I'll probably hold off and wait for Masterpiece rainmakers. If they can look this good in the Siege line, MP's should be amazing!

    which means the rainmakers have a built in $10 discount since they should be $90

    Okay, thanks. Like I said, I don't typically buy Siege, so I didn't know. Still, they look really cool. Might consider getting them after all since I've never seen Rainmakers before. It'll give me an excuse to use a Target gift card that's been burning a hole in my wallet.

    Personally I think it’s a great mold, I’ve got all 7 of the seekers they’ve done so far and definitely want more

    Funny how theyve been in stock on the site for a week and in almost every store, but a month ago, people were saying hasbro didnt make enough and blamed them and target, and said theyd never get them.

    Hasbro likes making money and Target doesnt designate shelf space that size to something that'd remain empty. Glad the restock arrived earlier than I expected.

    Target is usually pretty good at keeping the shelves stocked (at least in my area). Those eight Siege Rainmakers I found at one Target are now down to six so they'll be everywhere for a bit. I wouldn't wait on them though unless your area is prone to having sales.

    So here's how they pack when you order them online...

    The funny part is that I ordered two, they both shipped separately two days apart, and the other one came in a similarly oversized box with a ton of air pillows...

    I grabbed a set over the weekend. I'll make sure to keep the receipt in case these end up going on clearance in the near future.

    not sure that will happen soon, but Target has been known to put things on clearance rapidly to clear space (I got a Studio Series Blackout on clearance just within a couple of months that it was released)...and they are space hoggers...

    these look to have hit saturation as I have seen them at stores on more than one occasion lately (never en masse though, just one set usually) as well as the micromaster sets (also one or two at most)...overall I think they did a good job handling the demand on these (not so sure on Redwing...I guess he'll never appear at retail)...
