    They're definitely at saturation as I saw two this evening. I almost never see two of an exclusive, unless it's a Marvel or Star Wars figure that lands on shelves six months after the DVD (yay timing).

    Completely agree but I'm missing RED-WING, as that is all i need. So at this point now don't know if I'll ever get him. Since i really need someone to help me out on that i haven't gotten any offers cause haven't really asked.

    I'm still holding out some hope that due to lack of sales, Target might open him up to non-redcard members eventually. That or he starts popping up at places like Ross, TJ Maxx, Burlingtons, Ollies sometime in the next year. But if not, I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

    Yep, same here too. I just bought my Omega Supreme the other day and i checked on red wing. It still has that stupid tag (How do i buy this). Well then i say to myself "yeah target,... open him up for non-red card guys like me and I'll take him off your hands. As far as a secondary store like you listed I'm not sure about those in my area. I've never seen them before as I'm not a in store buyer of Transformers.

    The way distributions have been, I've been buying more online myself but those discount chains I mentioned usually have left over stuff from the bigger stores at pretty steep discounts like $50 Typticons at Ollies. If you are unsure if you have any of those stores in your area, their websites have store locators that should help you check for the closest ones. :)

    Thanks my friend for the help. I DO know there's a Ollies but it's an hour and half from me. So going to a Ollies is just a little outside for me to drive cause of a long ride is rough on me.

    You're welcome and I completely understand. The nearest Ollies and Burlingtons are about the same distance from me as well. We do have a Ross and TJ Maxx here locally but they don't seem to be getting the good stuff like the former two have been.

    if it helps justify the cost, think of it like buying it on the aftermarket a year from now, but your getting it now instead of a year later

    Redwing has already sold out and has been out of stock for at least a month or two. He only lasted 4 or 5 weeks, even with the "redcard" restriction.

    That's surprising. I was not aware he was sold out. I was still seeing the "How Do I Get This" link so I assumed they still had some. That would be bad to sign up only to find out, it's all gone.

    A couple of friendly board members were direct shipping orders from Target using their RedCard. Plus resellers/scalpers (whichever term you prefer) were buying up the figure to put on eBay.

    Thanks for letting me know about the figure status. I know another member said Robot Kingdom but I'm cool with the 6 i currently have.

    I’m hoping redwing gets restocked. On the app it says temporary out of stock.

    Did you try the website too? I think there was an issue with the app not letting you order originally.

    Well maybe there is hope they get more in and maybe not be on the Target red card as a exclusive. Well maybe there won't be any hope from the post above me is saying. So if there was a problem with app not letting ordering of figure. Things might be different but at this point please target i want the figure just not a red card lol.

    Bought it from them as well. To me this was the easiest to get, but still looking for reasonable price on rainmakers + international shipping

    Yep I went yesterday and they had three sets. I feel a bit silly for ordering them online now.
