    Katy West (which is the Cinco Ranch one) now shows "Out of Stock" whereas the Katy one (off of Fry Rd and I-10) shows Not Sold Here, wonder if the "Not Sold Here" stores won't be getting stocks yet. Bummer at 7AM many Houston area stores show in stock..I seem to miss it. But given that we are finding Starscreams (which show "Sold Out" with no store option) are in stock at alot of Targets, I am hopeful that these will flood the Targets in the coming weeks... I hope!

    same here I noticed the "Limited Inventory" at around 6am.

    correct, it was the Katy West (cinco ranch) store in katy on Westheimer & 99.

    at 8am they had 3 sets available. I got two, and the other guy got one.

    I hit the North Tomball Target and they had the TF endcap with the tags but did not have the seekers or clones out. I did not get anyone to check the back though.

    I was told by a worker that the website has the exact same information that they have at the stores, and it hasn't shown any in stock anywhere in San Antonio. The store that I had been at told me that they didn't even have space set aside for the Seeker set, yet, so it'll probably be another week, at least.

    Website showed limited stock at the Arboretum/Gateway Target in Austin. There were none on the shelf so I asked a guy and he went a fished out the case from the back. Bought one and he put the other two on the endcap. There are a handful of other Targets in Austin with similar status on their website and/or Brickseek, so it's worth flagging somebody down if you don't see them on the shelf.

    I checked my closest Target on Thursday, the one on SE Military. I saw the new endcap with Siege figures, and the $59.99 sticker for the Seeker Two-Pack. An Employee I asked checked & said they hadn't yet received any, but to check over the weekend. I've been busy & can't go on repeated fruitless hunting as much as I used to. It's a First-World problem I know, but it IS annoying. ;)

    They are in the back, I didn't want to bother an employee to get them. I am confident I will get them in the future. I had multiple opportunities to get the Target Rainmakers and Micromasters last year at Targets, I am not in a hurry to get them. Heck, Targets still have the Cyberverse exclusives on shelves. Oh, I should mention I saw Cyberverse Lugnut and Rack N Ruin at the Tomball North Target as well this morning.

    I've been seeing the Seeker pack pop in and out of stock in the northern DFW area this morning. I didn't have the chance to head out, but it is definitely happening now. Hopefully I get a chance later this week. I am not too worries since it is a Target exclusive and those usually show up in force out here.

    It seems like each store is getting in at least 3 sets. Hopefully they won’t be too hard to find in the next few days.

    In my experience it's bugged. The page will have the Add to Cart option but it won't actually let you add it to cart, and if it does you can't checkout with it.

    I had it in my cart once but I think I waited too long. Just as I hit “place order” it took it out of my cart and added it to a wishlist or something. It looks like it’s slowly starting to show up at some stores though which is a good sign

    Edit: Yeah I’m pretty sure it’s bugged, got an email that it was back in stock and I checked and it was already sold out again within like 10 seconds. In store is probably gonna be best bet it looks like

    Edit 2: Got another notification and rushed to checkout, I think I got the last one. 332FE6A3-756A-4895-99E7-80875E509E16.jpeg

    edit: appears images are having problems uploading. There are two seeker sets left on an end cap.

    Skillman Target this morning (I’m grabbing one):

    Been getting emails several times this week on the 2 pack seekers but everytime I click on it they're already gone and scratching my head on that. I mean the second I get the email I click the link and bam, gone....damn.

    Walmart in harker heights has some Netflix Megatrons, Mirage, Hound, and Chromia, 3 Cliffjumpers, 3 Ironworks, 4 Grapples, 1 Hoist, a SS Sentinel and that was all I can remember.
    Target in the same area though had 2 Astrotrains and lots of Micromasters for the Earthrise set....but that was about it. I was tempted on the Astrotrain but honestly I'm really happy with the Titans variant for the size and overall look so I might just overall pass on the Earthrise set for its price and size alone.

    I got the seeker 2 pack at Atascocita this morning. It’s in the closet for Christmas for my kids (7 and 10) along with Starscream, Optimus, and Sideswipe. Hopefully Megatron, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker are out on time to make a solid Transformers Christmas this year.
