    So wrong here.

    Thr event has been legit amazing. They singlehandedly restored good will towards the GI Joe community by re-releasing the hard to get Cobra Island exclusives and were largely easy to get. I was able to get everything I wanted and I even got to troop build the CI Cobra Trooper. All in all a supremely good event for that alone.

    Yeah, that alone has made this whole thing worth it. I knew going in that there was going to be TONS of stuff that I don't care about. Only the GI Joe reissues (which like you said, completely restored my faith in them), and any possibile TF news would interest me.

    Just because we haven't gotten TF yet doesn't mean this whole thing was a waste. If you expected literally everything would be perfectly catered to you, that's kinda your fault.

    Honestly right now my only expectations are Worlds Collide which could drop tomorrow or Wednesday and maybe pre orders for MPM Optimus on Sunday. I did see a listing for the earthrise Seeker Two pack on bbts so it's possible we get those too. Correct me if I'm wrong but the shelf date for Road Rage is supposed to be October/November right?

    As previously mentioned, League is a very popular game. I'm ecstatic to see merchandise available through a mass-market retailer. We've had transformers on shelves forever. I personally have not seen League stuff, even at like Gamestop. Only from Riot's store.

    The Transformers will come. Love Transformers fans who see anything else being released as pointless, as though fans of other things don't exist.

    My baby brother collects Funkos and is a big sports fan, he's been excited about some of the releases.

    The Transformers *have* come.

    SG Jetfire, T-Wrecks, Selects Galvatron, a HasLab Victory tease, the Ravage announcement....there's been all kinds of official announcements completely detached from Target.

    I really hope Worlds Collide drops from this event, Target just sent out a $10 off $50 or more coupon for toys that expires July 31st.

    Weird, mine is $5 off $25 or more, but I've got the $40 for opening a debit card (begrudgingly) and $25 gift card, so I've got this set almost completely paid for

    The $5 off $25 is for everyone who has the app. The $10 off $50 I think is a more targeted "For You" promo. It's possible because you're a newer account they acknowledge you've gotten that coupon so they're sending it to other people as an additional incentive.

    The July 31st end date tells me this is to try and get people to clear out their old stock ahead of their Fall reset (their app lists a number of TF preorders as 8/1 and I see that the Paw Patrol stuff my son has been asking about is also 8/1, alongside the new Marvel LEGOs that went up for PO as part of this).

    Yeah, not everyday is a homerun for me but Target Geek Summer has been great overall!

    Secured orders for Cobra Island figures I never thought I’d get at MSRP and Marvel Legends Rogue I regretted passing on last winter.

    And just like that, my faith in Targetumanity has been restored. :p 

    On/or around July 25 I will pre-order:

    Origins Bumblebee
    Worlds Collide
    Road Rage

    And contemplate ordering:

    T-Wreck free-for-all

    I got a $15 off $75 coupon on the app. Guess I'm gonna have to try to order the Worlds Collide set with that kinda discount.

    I got $25 off $100 emaill/circle offer. Would have been nice when I was going Joe-crazy! Hopefully more Joes pop into stock, or the Transformers offer is interesting. I don't know anything about the story behind the Worlds Collide box set, so I'm not 100% sold on it. The Fangry looks pretty cool though!

    I got the $15 AND the $10 ones. The $15 expires Sept 4th. Hopefully it pops up by then.

    Are the coupons only for Red card users?
