    How do y'all pronounce Cheetor? I'm going back and checking out Beast Wars seriously for the 1st time and I'm surprised he pronounces it "Cheater"...I assumed it was like CHEE-TOR.

    Clinton Hwy Target has the Kingdom core figures plus 1 Warpath and 2 Paleotrex

    Turkey Creek Target had pretty much nothing except for one lonely Studio Series Scourge who came home with me.

    That doesn't last very long. Pronunciations of the names was a bit fast and loose early in the series. Like "Tigertron" in his intro episode, for instance. It gets better and more consistent not long after that.

    The weird thing is SS86 figures are not showing up on PopFindr. I know for a fact that yesterday morning there were 2 Scourge at Franklin Target. They didn't register when I checked at 8am so I went anyway. With your report and PopFindr showing "0" (I highly doubt they have sold out) I think it's official. Anyone else notice this?

    Target has started blocking inventory info for certain DPCI's for collectible/high demand items and video game consoles. Brickseek is the same way.

    MAJOR bummer. Brickseek has kind of been bunk for a bit now. I haven't been able to find anything with accuracy since the WalMart Exclusive Marvel Legends Thanos figure dropped.

    Blame the PS5 scalper crowd for ruining things for the rest of us.

    Totally weak.

    Brickseek/popfindr was a godsend for trying to find rare figures.

    Yeah, I've heard it's really bad. I'm not a gamer but have good buddy that's been trying to get one since they dropped.

    "DAMN YOU ALL PS5 SCALPERS!!!! I HOPE YOUR BOTS BECOME SELF AWARE AND ATTACK YOUR BANK ACCOUNT"

    It's the ONLY way I've found GI Joe Classified Target Exclusives.

    Yup! That's the first thing I thought of.

    As if finding this stuff wasn't hard enough already.:(

    Wow. Hope you bought a lotto ticket that day.

    A Viper just popped up in stock and my friend gave me a call to come get it. Now I have the 4 I wanted.

    This Viper did not show up in PopFindr. So they are blocked. Two instances in two days.

    Lol no I’m not that lucky just kept an eye on popfindr PS5 stock and just waited till it dropped which was back in December all I did was went on target.com super early and when it was available just add to cart and about an hour it was ready for pickup honestly though I thought I had missed out cause it wouldn’t add to cart just said it was unavailable but once I got it in the cart I think I had to hit proceed to checkout like 5 times till it went through honestly I couldn’t believe it I thought they would call me and tell me that there was an issue but nope walked in Target and picked it up

    I need a Viper in a major way. I just gave up after I saw that it's a repeat of the Cobra Island fiasco. Interesting they are popping up at random.

    I have 2 Red Ninjas that Gamestop just shipped at least! I'm hoping I can trade one for a Viper.
