    Cool! It would be helpful if you let us know if there were other figures there when you left. :)

    The target on Custer near Campbell had something like 12 Smashdowns in Earthrise packaging, but no Soundbarriers. I wonder if an employee did what I was planning and buy out the Soundbarriers with the bogo50%. They also had a Grapple but no Starscream. I didn't pay attention to the SS voyagers, sorry. They also had plenty of both Earthrise wave 1 micromaster sets.

    This was almost every Target I went to today.

    Target in Allen (75/Mcdermott)
    Score! 2x Grapple left after I grabbed one. An Earthrise packaging Astrotrain as well. Grabbed the only ER Prime here.

    Target in McKinney (121/Custer)
    3x Grapple (There may have been Prime/Astrotrains here, I don't remember.)

    Target in Frisco (Preston/121-ish)
    Score! Snagged Hoist, Ironworks, and Crosshairs. There is a second Ironworks in their stockroom. Rest of the wave seems to be gone already and no Spinister in the back.
    2x ER Prime and 2x ER Astrotrain

    Target in Plano (Parker/75)
    Lots of the Earthrise micromasters.
    1x ER Prime and 1x Astrotrain
    A very kind Target employee armed with pictures she took off my cell phone checked their stockroom for ER Starscream and any ER deluxes but they had none. This store has a whopping 17 WFC deluxes in their stockroom but seem to be two waves behind. Seems unlikely this store will get anymore in the short term unless this sale does well.

    Story time! This first toy that I remember buying with my own money (and still have!) was a G2 Optimus Prime at this store. I was feeling an extra bit of nostalgia seeing ER Prime here. Would have been fitting to buy ER Prime here but I already had.

    Brownsville Target got in some ER Grapples. Harlingen Target has 2 ER Astrotrains. Missed the Starscream as I saw a guy who had it in his hands while walking to the toy aisle. Saw classic Astrotrain at Walmart in San Benito and Harlingen as well.

    I hit some of the same stores as you today and mostly saw Grapple. Checked the price scanners at them all and none of them had any Voyagers in the back room. The Allen Target on Stacy had SS Soundwave and WW2 Hot Rod but no WFC Voyagers at all.

    Hit something like 7 targets today between colleyville Grapevine Irving Addison and two in Dallas. Picked up an ER starscream and grapple, saw a few Astrotrains at a couple of locations, and saw no ER Primes... #dissappointed

    EDIT:
    Also saw no ER Deluxes at any of these targets.

    I have a special request from anyone in the San Antonio or Houston areas, I am looking for someone to hit up a few stores and of course I will pay a finders fee for your time to grab some items, just a few stores. Please pm if interested.

    Went back to check for restock with the sale. Cedar Hill Target has both Leader SS34 Megatron and Voyager SS54 Megatron.

    They did add 2xSpinister and 2xCrosshairs. The solo Earthrise Grapple was gone, but the Earthrise micros are still there. Nothing else new. Put out more Siege deluxes, no Earthrise ones. :(

    Score! Found ER Optimus at Target McAllen (Nolana) and one left. Also picked up the two ER Micromaster 2 packs at the Super Target off the expressway with plenty left on the pegs. Now to find that elusive Starscream...

    Was able to use the BOGO 50% sale at Target this week and got the ER Micromasters and Cyberverse 1-Step Bludgeon and Repugnus. Got these at the 249/Jones Target, which still has 2 each of the ER Micromasters. They also have an ER Voyager Grapple fro $19.99 that I passed on (seem Voyagers are on sale for $19.99 too).

    Did you go there today? I’m interested in the grapple if it’s still in stock there. Maybe I’ll swing by this afternoon.

    The target on 1960 hasn’t had any Earthrise for the last week or so. They have about a dozen shockwaves though :)
