The answer is probably no but i'll ask anyways...

Does anyone out there have an extra target exclusive robo vision optimus prime? anyone one know if target plans to stock these again or did I totally miss the train?

BTY... Target at southcenter has 2 Ultimate BB and about 10 G1 Jazz repaints. I believe I also saw Titanium Fallen and Prime. TRU southcenter has all the Voyagers except Rescue Ratchet and Thundercracker...

You probably missed out on it. It was a special run of the Voyager Prime figure for the roll out of the Movie Toy line on June 2nd. Unfortunetly it was for a limited time and limited production run. The only chance you could find one is if maybe the Target had some extra that got lost and they found the box and put them out. Otherwise Ebay is your best bet.

It is probably my favorite figure form the Movie line so far. Voyager Prime is just so damn cool, the articulation is awesome, the look of the figure is great and I just totally dig the double gun's. I can't wait for the G1 Optimus Prime repaint...

This morning Lynnwood Target put out one box of Deluxes -- I got there too late. They had two Dreadwings and one Final Battle Jazz when I arrived. They also had three G1 Starscreams and one Leader Megatron, but the box was in bad shape.

Everett Target also put out a box of Deluxes. I managed to see all of them besides Bumblebee. They also had two Leader Primes and two Leader Megatrons.

Thanks for meeting with me today Eddie! Hope you enjoy your Dropkick and Arcee!

Hey, thank you! Actually we should be thanking this site! If it weren't for this forum, we'd probably be still running around looking for that certain figure... well, at least I would be since I keep getting to the stores too late!

Now we just sit back and wait for the Target exclusive Bumblebee 2 pack, Best Buy exclusive Ratchet & Megatron, and of course Rescue Ratchet and Thundercracker...

Enjoy your Barricade!

Puyallup Target today,

Ton of G1 Jazz
About 8 G1 Starscream
1 Final Battle Jazz
1 Recon Barracade
1 Leader Megs
1 Leader Brawl
1 Dreadwing

Walmart South Hill
4 20th Ann Prime
2 Ultimate Bumblebees
4 Voyager Megs

Almost bought the Megs, but man that thing is ugly. Still holdin out in hopes of a repaint. The gun on FBJazz is huge, but with that and recon Barracade I decided that I don't need them since I am not too big of a fan of the originals.

I do have a Leader Class Prime that is unopened if anyone wants to trade for a Leader Megs. Thought I would just throw it out there.

I almost made some runs today...but then I remembered I have nothing I'm really looking for.

This is an odd feeling.

Anyone make any runs today?

I'll probably make one on the way home tonight to the Lynnwood Wal-mart.

And I know what you mean when you are caught up and there is nothing else. But I still have a ways to go...here is what I am actively looking for:

Basic Elita-1, Armorhide and Air Raid.

Deluxe Concept BB and Arcee.

Voyager G1 Starscream (always seem to be a little to late), Thundercracker and Rescue Ratchet.

Ultimate BB (havent bit the bullet yet).

I am glad that we are all talking a bit more in this thread as well. This thread isnt just for posting your sightings, it's a regional thread where we can all get together and talk about Transformers and what not. It is also pretty cool to see us helping each other out with the figures we can't find.

Tomarrow I am getting a set of the Fusion Cluster Protoform Exclusives from one of the Hobby Conventions in Japan. I will snap some pics and post them.

Picked up Dropkick at the Lake Stevens Target this aftrnoon.
Rodimus already has his (thanks to BB-206) and I neglected to check the date of the posting since I was in a hurry, so I have one if anyone else needs it. Will leave it in package for a day or two but don't know how long I can resist temptation. It looks pretty damn cool! 8)

The only other stuff they had were a few Nightbeat and Wiretap Real Gear. No Basic exclusive figures which is what I was initially after (sorry Matt)

I'll start hitting up the Fred Meyer stores and reporting back. Occasionally they have surprised me. I found 2nd wave of movie Legends there before anyone else had them.

Dropkick is a very awesome figure. Infact some of the non movie figures are the coolest ones in the movie toy line. The poseability and looks of Drokick and Longarm are just awesome. They definetly did a good job on those 2.

I went all around Everett and Lynnwood today (Everett Wal-Mart and Target, Kynnwood Target and TRU) and everything was pretty much barren. The Everett target is filled with Cybertron figures though and other older stuff. Unlike some of the other stores they seem to be unloading their old stock since they have nothing new. They still have a few Classics Jetfire.... I remember when that was a complete **** to find.

Also the target in Lynnwood had Titanium The Fallen (keyword had :P ) but still have BM Cheetor and RID Optimus Prime.

I asked a guy at Lynnwood target to see if they had any G1 Starscreams in the back and he said they didnt, but he checked Everett and they had 9...but when I was there in the morning they didnt have any out :sad: . So now maybe tomarrow morning I will go back and if they are not out..I will ask someone to check the back. I want my G1 Starscream damn it :o

Hey thanks for looking out T-Macksimus! Dropkick is a cool figure.. I still have mine in the package but want to open it so bad! I wouldn't mind having 2 Dropkicks (i for play, the other for display :P ) How far are you from the Seattle area? Not sure where the Lake Stevens area is but maybe we could meet somewhere in between?

Air Commander Starscream - You might already know this but when you go to the Everett Target, ask them to look up DPCI 087-06-0006. Thats the code for the G1 Starscream. It's different then the other Voyager class TFs. For some reason some Targets have them sitting in the back like they don't know what to do with them... One of my local Targets has had empty shelves now for months. One day I just went up to one of the employees and asked to check that number.. Low and behold they had 2 cases each of both G1 Starscream and G1 Jazz (087-06-0682)!!! Who knows how long they have been sitting back there... Happy hunting!

Thanks for the tip. I will do that tomarrow and hopefully I can finally get my hands on one. Then my Starscream collection can grow even more!

For Rodimus (or any of the NW hunters) I am in the South Everett/North Lynnwood area but I am not opposed to traveling
since my work has taken me throughout a lot of the Northwest.
Commuting to Issaquah has been so common for me, I don't think twice about it and it is not uncommon for me to drive to the North Bend KB Toys or Wal-mart in Mt. Vernon to hunt stuff down. So if anybody hears of stuff out there and it coincides with my schedule and finances, I'll run it down for you.

I live in North Lynnwood as well kind of near the Alderwood Mall and Wal-Mart, but I work at a FedEx Kinko's in U district. So thats pretty much my range of hunting but I am trying to broaden and find other places.

And actually I will take it a step forward and just introduce myself since we all might be trading and what not. My name is Matt and as you guys know I am 1 of 2 News Admins for Seibertron.com. I am 22 and I work for FedEx Kinko's. I pretty much got back into colelcting Transformers in the middle of the Energon series, I had stopped getting Transformers as a kid around the end of Beast machines. Other things I like to collect besides Transformers would be Star Wars (but usually only the troops figures and the ocasional really cool one) and Macross stuff, Ive also been known to collect Kamen Rider figures and a few G.I.Joe figures here and there.
