    People complain about Target but online shopping through Walmart SUCKS. There’s never an accurate hint of what’s in store through the app and for some reason when it comes to toys that stuff is verboten for store pick up. And preorders always sell out way faster than anybody else.

    Takara will be up next plus amz will most likely get more in stock even if it's in a year or whatever.

    Me too :) 

    It's only *verboten" in most locations & only since the epedemic. It will clear up through time & I hate wm bc if you order something you'll see it in stores next. If you don't you won't ever see it lol.

    The alternative is they don't get made.

    I was lucky enough to get preorders in for these guys yesterday morning around noon Eastern Time.
    What are the odds of the preorder getting cancelled or my order just not fulfilled?

    that’s what I’m most worried about....

    they might still get made but they’ll either be spread out over the years(took six years to get all six seekers in classic mold in mass retail by hasbro and I’m being kind with saying that because Skywarp was still a target exclusive) or they’ll get released and other figures won’t happen.

    six damn years to get all of them if you didn’t buy a botcon box set or buy Takara import versions and people complain it’s taking too long to get these guys and Earthrise started 9 months ago.

    Same here, but I’m basing that on Amazon and Walmart preorder cancellation notices people have been getting. I’ve gotten stuff from Target online and the experiences have been positive. I’ve just never preordered anything from them before.

    A few target exclusives somehow make it to Amazon, like the Skywarp and Thundercracker pack and the Decepticon clones. Maybe if we are lucky they would be in stock soon there.:drunk

    Not sure why Hasbro has such an obsession with making sure it is never easy to get both Runabout and Runamock. Always hey we need to split up the team by making one of them a hard to get exclusive.

    With Target, the seekers seem to periodically restock, but you literally have minutes to snatch up part of an allotment when they restock.

    What is the point of them getting made if you cant get it.

    these come in full cases of themselves. Right now leadfoot is shelf warming and how story do is Thundercracker and Skywarp. I see 3-5 of them at every target. Granted I have to go to targets regularly for my job but still. Just because you can’t get them online doesn’t mean you can’t get one. Put a mask on and go hunting

    I sure hope so, the images appear to have the same hinges/joints present on the wings that should allow for it.

    That might have been the case before 2019, but Hasbro has Selects now. If they could release the Powerdashers, then they could definitely release Thrust and Runamuck on it.

    Runaboat\'s paint is amazing! And Thrust is nice, although I prefer my Coneheads with black faces.

    "If I can't have it, no one should." is a terrible way to go through life.
