    Dammit target, you were supposed to reissue Thrust and Runabout, not this trash.

    That Megatron is such an odd choice, but I might honestly hop on it. Especially after Takara choosing to give 07 Megatron the “premium” deco for whatever reason.

    Except that toys don't actually have "street dates" and Target's computer system is taking the "stock arriving in warehouses for web orders" and calling that field in the database "street date" in the hand scanners. No Hasbro product ever has a street date UNLESS its for a giant movie launch like Star Wars where a whole line comes out at once.

    Target has a computer problem, that's it. They're putting their own "Street dates" on toys when they shouldn't. Yes, this includes when things are register locked.

    There's one more day of this style of reveal tomorrow. Then Sunday is the day they've been promoting as new/exclusive stuff.

    Did Megatron always have a paint job that good? I reckon the one in my shelf isn't half as half as silver.

    Looks the same as my Battle Damaged version. Do you have the regular retail release, or the Target-exclusive Battle Damaged one?

    I was just relaying information as I understand it from having worked there and my S/O still does and nothing has changed from what I've seen. It would be awesome if they removed it because it is pretty arbitrary, the only rationale I can find is they want stuff to line-up with new planograms/sale events.
