    You can also just look the Ark up on Target's app and use "In Store Pickup."

    This guy isn't an assortment, so I would expect it to give you the option for in-store pickup if he's available at a location near you.

    Yeah of all the release dates that hold go figure it's this guy.

    Now this is a story all about how
    My life got flipped - turned upside down
    And I'd like to take a minute
    Just sit right there
    I'll tell you how I became the Ark of a town called Bel Air

    I used to think the same thing, but when the first reported sightings sightings are in Texas or Maryland, I be thinking its just crappy distribution. If you look at the FL sightings thread, Slag and Grindor sightings didnt happen south of Orlando. Like if the regional distribution center in Florida just said, f**k it, dont put any in the trucks going down there or the pallet went empty before our trucks even got a box loaded.

    You guys really think that living on a coast means you’ll get figures first? They dont come off the shipping containers and straight into a loading truck to the nearest store. They get sent to warehouses all over the nation where they’re inventoried into systems and such before distraction. Pulse items are shipped from a warehouse facilities in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Georgia.

    Looks like you didnt bother to read my post because I clearly mentioned the (Target) regional distribution center in Florida not loading any Slags in trucks going south of Orlando. (Plenty of North Florida sightings reported) Im guessing youre somewhere by the coasts where its still like 5 AM in the morning. Wake up, rub your eyes, and read the entire post before commenting. Not trying to be a d**k this early, but sheesh....Nobody mentiined anything about Pulse BTW.

    Yeah, the Autobots have to take their time and pick a good cliff side to crash into. Do you know how hard that is in areas with no mountains?

    Yeah, and where do you think the closest warehouses are in that distribution line? That area where the shipping containers land, which is typically on the coast.

    At worst, they can crash into the jungle and reenact the romance from The 08th MS Team with one of the Decepticons. I know I’d watch that.

    In two weeks, Target will clearance these out.  Just like they did with the Movie Masterpiece line.  I have a feeling these will start showing up at Ross and Ollies right before Xmas.

    Doubt the Target clearance part. My bet is each store gets 2-4 tops then never restocks. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
