    Target website (Link here) lists Superion as online only. I haven't seen it in stores, but I know it's been picked up by some people. I grabbed mine online, but I figured I'd share so people could either be aware, or someone can go ahead and flag it as a mistake in the listing.

    I just saw my first one at a Target in Katy TX. I been to 3 other ones over here in West Houston and hadn't seen any at all. They had 2 actually. I was gonna pick them up but I didn't like them for myself.

    Idk about that one. Maybe they're starting to sell them just online, but in PHX, AZ they had at least 7 or 8 of them on the floor.

    Target has listed their exclusives as online only before, and it's never the case. I'm sure it's because they're collector-oriented limited items, and they don't want to worry about complaints of not being able to find it in person when it's on the site.

    The listing's been mentioned before as well.

    OK. I was curious when I saw that, I figured someone else might be too. :)

    At the top of this sub-forum, there is a 'deals' sticky thread. Right now, there is a $5 off of $50 coupon. Also, even better (if you're ordering more than exactly $50 and two figures), there are codes for 10% off of 2 figures, 15% off of 3, and 20% off of 4 figures.

    1x Universe Blades
    1x Universe tread bolt,

    20% off
    mostly free shipping (i had to pay about 3 bucks of the 9 for shipping, maybe one of the items does not fall under the free shipping over 50 deal??)

    Umm... They're not online only. I picked mine up in person at a store. You have to ask for them, possibly giving a DCPI number. Most locations are so stacked with ROTF cases and busy keeping pegs full that they simply don't have the space set to put the exclusive sets on.

    Ask for them, most stores have them. They're just in the back.

    Happens all the time. Even had employees tell me it said that when they had some in the back room. No idea why they do it.
