    That's probably what happens if he doesn't win the Fan Poll.

    Just like Alicon probably winds up in Studio if Gnaw had won.

    The fact that Runabout is a Target exclusive is tugged at my impulse to order it when it pre-orders were up, lol. It's looks nice, but I'm good with the 2012 TCC set. However, if the Target pre-order for Runabout was still open a little longer I would've caved. :p 

    Yeah, Runabout and Runamuck should've beeen a two-pack, and ER Prowl should've been a mass release, ER Ironhide a Target exclusive...We all know how Target loves red toys.

    Been super happy securing an order for ER Thrust... I did condition my brain to accept deluxe Generations Thrust as a suitable figure to go with ER Dirge and Ramjet in case plan A failed. :p

    @Satomiblood- Yeah. It would make more sense to do so with multi packs. I would honestly love to of had all of the first seekers in one package, and then all of the coneheads in a separate triple pack. It\'s the same way with my new age seekers.

    @trence5- Yep. I\'m already seeing pre-orders on eBay for around $75-$85 per pop for this

    I try but is not easy. Not everybody is willing to go out for you to get whay you need even at tip, and less with this pandemic.

    And its not just TF, motu origins exclusive to Ealmart and some Classified exclusive to Target certainly dont help. The only winning instance if is they decide to make amazon exclusive. Those are easier to get.

    I’ve been on a moving trip without internet or time for the most part. I haven’t had time to place orders yet because stuff is difficult.

    I really hope Runabout will be as easily available as Leadfoot in physical stores- I wish it was as simple as ordering him on Amazon like SS86 figures, though.

    On the fence about Thrust, though he's my favorite of the coneheads.
    I still have my Generations Thrust which may be all I need for him as a character, really.
    Runabout too, I know I don't need it... but I kind of want it :lol

    Definitely agree with you there. Runabout looks way better than Runamuck to me, and seeing how difficult it is to get the Amazon Coneheads, and the fact that I was unable to preorder them when they were available, I want Thrust so badly. It’s been a good year for Target exclusives, Leadfoot, thrust, runabout. Hopefully the distribution is just as good as the figures

    I'm so glad I got my preorders in for Runabout and Thrust. Never sleep on exclusive seekers!

    Ebay:
    Should I preorder Runabout at any other place? It's the only one I found and I preordered there, but I have never ordered or known about them.

    Surprisingly I managed to find an open Runabout preorder, despite having given up on getting any exclusives this year. I'm having enough difficulty enough just importing retail waves 2 and 3 for reasonable prices.

    Not wanting to be a downer to the geographically privileged lot of course, I'm sure the rest of us are just lazy.;)

    I noticed in my confirmation emails from target, my pre-orders are no longer showing pics of Thrust and Runabout.
    When you click on them it takes you to a disabled website.
    That doesn’t mean my pre-orders will be unfulfilled, does it?
    I assume it means they’re just no longer available for pre-order??? (Sold out)

    They both still work on the Target Android app, and they both show sold out preorders.

    Target will keep the authorization on your card until it ships. Once it drops off, they re-authorize, over and over, until the ship date.

    Fuck. That makes me especially glad I only ordered Thrust from them now. From now on, I'm only preordering exclusives from them. That's a terrible practice.

    Nope, I collect and I have as difficult a time finding stuff as anybody, exclusives included. Everything that I've resold since closing my distribution account is stuff that I've picked up on pretty deep discount. I frequently warn people of the dangers of waiting for clearance, like with Target's Skywarp/Thundercracker set, and direct them to online shops when Walmart or Amazon are sold out. Sorry that you do not like retail price, or aftermarket price once the retail and Ollies windows have closed, but that dislike alone is not enough.

    Although, I do have a couple of recent FT releases that I've been thinking of getting rid of. I was thinking of putting up a marketplace post but you reminded me why I decided against it. People just don't understand the costs involved. I'm not going to pay anybody to take something that's going for triple retail on eBay, nor do I care to take the risk of trying to get that high price on eBay. Congratulations, you played yourself.

    Still mad I never get a chance to get Dirge and Ramjet on Amazon, starting to wish they were never Amazon exclusives. I think they went back up last week and within a few hours, all gone again. I’ve heard ppl who pre ordered them still haven’t gotten them. To me Amazon has dropped the ball big time.
