    My web preorder is allegedly in UPS’ hands in Iowa right now, scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I ordered him and Runabout on Target’s website on October 16th, and their preorder system suuuuucks. Every week they put a hold on your card for the purchase amount, and then release it five days later; every week until the item actually ships. So they caused a fluctuation in my bank account balance for ten weeks.

    Plus, Thrust’s scheduled arrival date was delayed twice, and every time it was delayed, I got an email saying they were going to cancel the order if I didn’t go to the order summary page and consent to the delay.

    Ok, Thanks for letting me know... I really appreciate it :) . At least I can still watch the order page on Target, and not wonder if I missed it, haha. That really stinks about the hold thing on your card! It seems like the preorder system on a lot of the big-box stores suck in general. I hope that eases up on you. Take care!

    My target order was cancelled unfortunately. Checked popfindr around 5am that Hilldale received one. kinda weird since the case should be 3-4. By the time I woke up at 10am looks like someone was able to buy him. I'm kinda thinking that Thrust was on one of the shipping containers that fell into the sea.

    Limited stock at Miller Park Target. I saw it on the website and called right away to have them put on hold for me. Keep looking lads we're bound to get more soon.

    Janesville Target has Thrust in stock. They haven't made it to the floor yet but if you call them they will hold one for you.

    A friend of mine in CA found 4 Thrusts and bought them out to supply my group chat. I still have my continually delayed one on order, we will see if I end up with an extra or not.

    Looks like Studio Series 86 has been seen in California and Kingdom figures have been seen in Ohio.

    The web reports limited stock of Thrust at Madison East but one employee stated that all 4 figures will be available starting January 6th.

    Has anybody seen any Netflix Bumblebee's on clearance? I went to the Walmart in Stevens Point and WI Rapids and the deluxes are $10. Stevens Point is sold out of deluxes but WI Rapids had some Netflix and Earthrise figures...no Bee though. Also a pile of Optimus Prime w/ trailer for $25.

    Got it, thanks. In Stevens Point, all the pegs where the Netflix figures were hanging showed a clearance tag, but there were no figures there so I assumed all deluxes were on sale.

    Does anyone have an extra Bee? I may head up to Wausau and check there too.

    I’m going to stop by the Sun Prairie Target on the way home from work. I’ll let everyone know if there is anything new there.
