Reports of the Target exclusive Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Predacons Rising figures appearing at retail started circulating a couple of weeks ago, and now we thanks to Seibertron.com Bounti76 have finally have some photographic proof. Bounti76 picked up Voyager Dark Steel, Deluxe Sky Lynx, and the Cyberverse Smokescreen vs. Cindersaur set up at a Super Target in Centerville, Utah.

Seibertron.com staffer robofreak picked up the Predacons Rising Abominus set last week.

Dumb question, but where in Target are these things located? With the rest of the TF stuff, or in it's own little section/endcap?

I didn't see them out on shelves... I had the DPCI (Target inventory numbers) codes, and punched them in to a price scanner. They all came up except for Abominus. Then I just asked an employee, and they brought out the cases for me to pick from. I didn't get the Bumblebee vs. Blight pack, the Bumblebee deluxe, or the Predaking repaint, because they weren't that interesting to me.

So in answer to your question, you may have to have the DPCI codes and ask an employee if you don't see them on shelves.

Oh, I forgot to include him, since he wasn't even in the stock room. The 2429 is for the two packs of Smokescreen vs Cindersaur and Bumblebee vs Blight. Abominus is 2431.

Is this a national phenomenon or "certain Targets only/certain employees only" - because some 15 years ago, when I worked at Target, there was a rule about "don't grab cases of toys for customers - they have to buy what's on the shelf". This was after I grabbed a case of Hot Wheels for a collector to look through - I didn't see the big deal (this was obviously an adult collector who would be spending more money in our store, should we treat him well, right??). But sure enough, I was reprimanded for helping him.

Ergo, if I walk into a Target today, will they play ball or give me a "what's on our shelves is what's on our shelves" speech?

Ehh, maybe my supervisor was just a d*ck, back in the day.

Still, am I the only one who feels awkward going into a store with item numbers like this? :oops:

Very rarely if ever do I use DCPI codes. Just makes me feel desperate. The only time I saw something about pulling figures in a Target was during Christmas when a Star Wars Exclusive was supposed to come out.

I'm only grabbing Skylynx, since I'll be getting Grimwing instead of Darksteel

The Predacons in the promo where colored Green (#1) and Red-Brown, White, and Navy Blue (#2), along with sharing similar headsculpts, resemble Grimwing, not Darksteel, and Skylynx respectively.

To each their own.....it didn't make me feel desperate in the least. I just wanted to make sure I got them, as I think they'll be a hot item.

To answer your question, Metrosuplex, I think it depends on the Target you go to. When DOTM came out, and the Human Alliance Leadfoot Target exclusive was near release, I went into one Target to ask, and they said they wouldn't put them out until a certain date, or something to that effect. It's been a couple of years, so I forget the exact response. Then, that same day, I went into a Target closer to my house, asked about the item, gave them the DPCI code, and they just asked how many I wanted and went and got it from the back. I'm not sure if it's Target policy to not give items to customers items when none of the assortment are on the shelves. Either way, most employees are pretty nice about it.

Hmm, Target's website says that Darksteel & Skylynx won't be available until August 4.

Grabbed my Abominus set yesterday with the DCPI; they had one waiting at customer service when I rolled in.
DCPI: 087-06-2431

The others im not too interested in except for Darksteel; would be great to see some flicks unboxed before i decide to grab.

When you open it can you let us know if there's instructions as to how to combine them?

Plan on getting one. But for those who already opened theirs, the main torso (Is he still called Hungrr?) he looks too small.Is it just anoptical illusion on my side or is my statement corect?

Well they're all Legion class, so he's a tad on the small side. But I like the way it comes off, all disproportionate and, y'know, an ABOMIN(ation)US. :lol:
