Good news for OC people! Went to the Laguna Niguel Target today to buy a new TV (15-inch hi-def for 150, you just CAN'T f*cking pass that up. Bought the last one), and of course I looked in the TF aisle! The Ultimate Bumblebee endcap isn't up, meaning their "reset" hasn't been done, but that didn't stop them from restocking on some things that I haven't seen since early June. No "important" figures, sadly (still looking for that Jazz, praying for a BB Concept, looking for Ironhide, etc.), and nothing hiding like last time (thanks for the Voyager Starscream, stupid employee!), HOWEVER: they fully restocked their Target Exclusive Scouts/Basics/Energon and Cybertron Repaints, and I picked up Hardtop, unwilling to pick up Arcee in hopes of finding a Deluxe one in the future. I should've picked up Skyblast, as I have the Energon Skyblast and he happens to be one of my favorites, and this repaint looks GREAT with the military colors. However, they do have every Scout you could imagine, so if you wanted Arcee Basic, pick her up now, boys and girls!
Also, they had 2 Unleashed Primes - not bad at all! Didn't pick one up because I don't particularly want one. On top of that, they have several Robot Heroes, but not just Thundercracker/Jazz! They happen to have at least 10 to 11 Optimus Prime/Unicron left (!!!), and of course I grabbed one!
Surprisingly though... they had no Real Gear. I was hoping to find High Score 100 or maybe even Meantime or Booster X-10 (keep forgetting to pick that little guy up every time I see him... he IS Lazerbeak), but nope! Nothing!
Other than one Zoom Out 10x... in hiding. Hmm.... are we going to start seeing Real Gear shortages too?! Come on, Hasbro, get it in gear!
