    Tank you!! Saw the front page and was out the door in less then 2 minutes. I'm not supposed to be driving, just out of hospital and on meds, but this was so worth it. Got the last purple shockwave and one sunstorm. Even got a Wolverine Origins Deadpool comic costume on sale to boot.

    I got to Target this evening and what had been a full endcap two days ago was completely empty. Looks like I missed out. =(

    Almost missed, out, a few Sunstorms remaining. I was on the fence about him last week so this is pleasant. Purple Shockwave is badass for sure, but the regular one is enough for me. Though if he shows up purple for any reason later on in the show, I'll be pissy.

    I have an extra set-if anyone wants to execute a modest and fair trade with me please PM me. If not, I will just take the set back and get a refund.

    Thanks For the heads Up! I had bought the Shokewave set awhile ago. Was worth it to me then. So not upset,this kind of discount happens with Target Exclusives alot. So I pick up a Sunstorm and another Shockwave set. had a few there since it wasn't marked down on the header. Got the one Sunstorm I back shelfed earlier with the least problems.
    Other then arcee, I'm done with Animated!

    I wonder if my local Target will have them on sale? There was an entire endcap last week when I was last there. Better go check it out tomorrow. I'm not really that into Animated (only 3 TFA figs in my collection), but I like Shockwave enough to pay $5 for it.

    What was a full endcap no less than yesterday was completely wiped out today after work. Bummer. But my father-in-law and another friend each picked me up a set. So I'm good. Thanks for posting this!!

    I saw the thread in toy discussion earlier, so I headed to Target and didn't see anything in the aisle. I peeped around the end cap and there was 1 Shockwave left and 3 Sunstorms. I got 1 of each :D

    I originally was going to pass on both of them, but for $5 it's an easy sale. I was able to hook up a friend of mine (who's been sick this week) as well. Awesome.

    Unbelievable. Whats the point of having exclusives (which are supposed to encourage people to come into the store and then spend money) if they're just going to "dump" them at a cheap price within mere weeks?

    I bought mine on 3/23. They're open and on my shelves now, so I'll be going in with the receipt tomorrow.

    edit: y'know, at $4.99, that's not a Target clearance price. they usually end with an 8 or a 4 when it's clearance.
