    The ones you mentioned ship in the same cases you found. Another customer or employee bought them before you got there.

    It depends. Most have been very helpful. A few haven’t, despite me being nice when asking. It’s a YMMV situation. However just as much as it only takes 1 collector to make all collectors look bad, the same can be said for employees. Being nice might not always net the best results but I give the benefit of the doubt, maybe the employee had a bad day, stuff happened beyond their control, et al.

    Like that bullshit random streetdate thing Target had for Transformers like SIEGE voyagers in spring - summer 2019. That was all the fault of someone in corporate, not the Target employees in store.

    Hopefully Grimlock doesn’t ring up streetdated at checkout out of nowhere in a few months.

    Scourges come packed with Hot Rods. Someone beat you to them.

    I can’t wait to find Grimlock. My son always wants to play with my MP. At least, this is one he’ll be able to handle... who am I kidding? I’m playing with this bad boy too!

    To think, we’ve been waiting almost 15 years for a Grimlock like this(or more if you didn’t collect Classics!).

    It's still happening. On the Target site it says the SS86 figures are available 2/1, and the employees at the local store are using that as a guide as to when to put them out. They refuse to break that "street date", and have all new figures in a specific "TE" location so they aren't put out early.

    I've always found them to be very helpful in my area. I've had them pull items from the back every time I ask. But I should add that I'm very handsome. :D

    That's weird. I always purse my lips and bat my eyes but it only ends with "Sir I'm going to have to ask you to leave."

    It's so incredibly appropriate that this was found by a poster named Grimlock1997.

    no, but you might find a member of the Nae Nae Wheelie Cult willing to buy the Wheelie figure.

    Question is if Grimlock was scanned at the register, would it block you or let you check out?

    Man, I wish I had the answer for that, because it would mean I found one.

    I haven’t talked to any of the employees at my Targets, but they seem to be following the 2/1 “street date” because I haven’t found a single SS86 figure. Heck, I haven’t even seen any Kingdom voyagers or leaders. Even more confusing is that, on the TF subreddit, a lot of folks have been posting photos of their SS86 purchases from their local Targets. It seems some stores are sticking by the street date while others have simply stocked the shelves.

    To anyone who has Grimlock in-hand, is the Gold on him actually clear plastic colored gold?
