We got so many emails and messages about this one, it would have been next to impossible to pick someone to give news credit to.

It's alright. I was just hoping this would be my chance to raise my news credits past 11. For some reason based on nothing even resembling rational thought, I find 11, or a series of 11s (ex:11:11am) to be unnerving.

$6.50 for that Construct Bots set, you say? I just bought another one today for $6.24 (yeah, whoop-dee-slag, but if you wanna' army-build or stock up on future birthday/Christmas presents for younger extended family, it adds up), and that's at 3 different Targets too. But canvassing the SE Michigan stores between Napier and Beech-Daly, I've seen ones for just 50 cents or $2.50 more. No rhyme or reason to it.

Well, except for one consistency: The stores that have that set for $8.74 are the ones that have Predaking for $17.48, and therefore aren't sold out yet. They'll often be on a clearance shelf 2 or 3 aisles away from the other TFs. The Legion vs. sets are long gone, and I keep scanning all their exclusives in between the 2 extremes, but nothing else is budging yet. My hunch is that they'd have to clearance all Preds Rising figures sharing the same price point at the same time.

I posted more details in the MI sightings thread, more to come.

Just added 2 more sightings to the Michigan thread when something dawned on me about that C-Bot set not only being on clearance, but marked down the same percent as Predaking regardless of what the percent is: could it be that Target has them both listed as "Ultimate" class, so they can't clearance one without the other, even though Predaking's original price was nearly double the 2-pack's?

You wouldn't think simple wording would trump actual price points, especially when one is their exclusive and one not, but Target's always had more pricing irregularities than any other big retailer I can think of.

Snagged the Optimus vs. Megatron Constructbots set for about $6.50. I'm definitely happy at that.

I was at my local Target a few days ago and they had Beast Fire Predaking for $34.98. I went back today and got him for $10.48! What a steal!
