    Targets in the valley have SS Overload & MPM Starscreams out. I managed to pick up one of each. I’ve only seen 1 to 2 of each figure. I might have ran into a scalper at one of the target stores, so heads up.

    1 Seeker 2 pack at Riverdale Target. Didn't pick it up, already found it earlier.

    Aswell as 1 Masterpiece Movie Starscream, did not pick that up either, don't by MP's.

    Good luck guys, Leadfoot tag also placed out, let's hope he show's up...

    The person was looking around the transformers stuff and other toys to buy, while carrying/clenching some figures in their hands. I’m sorry, is scalper the right term?

    It depends. If it looks like he was trying to snatch up every copy of all the hard to find stuff, presumably to resell it, then he'd be a scalper.

    For example, I remember back when MP Soundwave got its American release, I found out the Sugarhouse Toys R Us was getting a shipment, so I got there bright and early, only about five minutes after they opened, but as I was walking up to the store, I saw a guy coming out the exit with his bags full of all the MP Soundwaves they had (I think there were about four of them). When I went inside, an employee apologized that the guy had bought out their entire stock. I later recognized him as having a booth at Salt Lake Comic Con (now FanX) selling action figures at a major markup. He was definitely a scalper, and I refused to buy anything from him on principle.

    Another time, even longer ago, back in the days of Transformers: Cybertron, I was always staying up super late on weekends, and stopped by a 24hr Walmart late one Friday or Saturday night. I was hoping to find Cybertron Repugnus, and was happy to see they had the case for him sitting in a pile of boxes by the aisle, waiting to be opened. I asked a lady stocking the shelves if it would be okay if I opened the case and grabbed the one I was looking for, and she said it was fine. While I was thumbing through the figures to find the right one, some guy came up to me with his arms full of Hot Wheels cars right as I was pulling out Repugnus. Looking hungrily between the figure in my hand and the case in front of me, he asked, "Is that one rare or valuable?" I replied that no, it was just one I personally wanted, and he walked off disappointed. I'm convinced he was a scalper too.

    Did you try to grab one? Are they following street dates?
