Eyewitness Reports- According to Lapse of Reason, you may want to check out the Target exclusives the next time you are there. They may be marked with clearance prices. Lapse has already spotted them at 30% off the regular prices in his area.

"Both Springer/Ratbat & Dirge/Roadbuster comic packs and both Animated exclusive packs have entered the first round of Target clearance pricing (30% off). Target sales are nationwide so chances are your local Target store has marked them down already. These are not available online on Target's web site."

Take a look at your local Target if you are interested in finding these exclusives at a reduced price, and help your fellow collectors out by reporting to them in the appropriate thread in the Sightings Forum!

Target over hear was picked clean so it does me no good unless they decide to restock. But that normally takes about a month.

Usually when an item goes on clearance they don't restock

I visited three Targets in the north metro Denver area. They all have boat loads of them. Too bad I already bought Springer/Ratbat & Roadbuster/Dirge. They are clean out of pretty much everything else. I still can't track down Universe Hound and the G1 Legends.

As of yesterday, they were still full-price at one of my two nearby Targets. I'll check the other one tomorrow.

The 25th Ann. Optimus Prime figs were marked down 30% as well...still a bit overpriced for a G1 re-do, but marked for clearance nonetheless.

Went to Target and Wal Mart, saw the anniversary Prime for 50 bucks at Target, but at Walmart picked up The Bumblebee WalMart exclusive 3 pack for 17 bucks, and a animated Prime/Blackarachnia 2 pack for 9 bucks. They also had Megatron/Prowl 2 packs as well for 9 bucks. A little off topic but Target had Marvel figures that come with Red Hulk pieces down to 7 bucks,originally 15. I mean since you put Red Hulk together like Devestator it kinda counts,right? LOL

I haven't seen anniversary Prime marked down anywhere...But I think $50 is still too much for it...$70 was flat-out rediculous, even with all the extra stuff it comes with...The colours are awful and the short smokestacks suck...

Picked up Roadbuster v. Dirge for $20 yesterday at a Super Target somewhere off I95 in Florida.

Get 'em if you can.

Normally Target will not price match an item you purchased if it goes on "clearance", even if it is within the normal 30 day (or however long Target offers) price guarantee. There is a loophole. When I saw these on sale, I went to the customer service desk with them. Since I purchased these about a month ago I asked if they could price match and was told no because of the above information.

I did not have a receipt, but they were able to look up my purchase because I used a debit card. Since they would not price match, I asked "What if I bought these right now at the sale price, and then I hand them back to you and have them credited as a return of the regular price purchase?" The guy smiled and said I was smart man to have discovered the loophole. I bought, then returned the items and ended up getting the price difference back.

Yea, I found my receipt for that and the GI Joe UBP and plan on picking them up on sale tomorrow and bringing them back in with my original receipt. I don't feel too bad doing it with all the cash I have been dropping there, and it gives me an excuse to "reinvest" in Stormcloud with the cash I get back. Been looking for an excuse to buy him for a while now.

At least 7 that I can think of within 30 miles of me (Fort Worth/Dallas area). They are Targets with grocery stores, optical and little eaterys in them. Nice if you like avoiding the rabble at Wal-Mart.

Never ever seen a Super Target but I would love one around here since I detest WalMart...

Now it would only help if the closest Target had gotten them in the first place. Sheesh. And I had to go get them off of Toywiz instead.

Another markdown. Maybe now I'll buy the Springer/Ratbat set.

My thoughts exacly. I don't really want it, but if I can roll them up at 75% off eventually, it will make damn good birthday presents for my friends kids. Gotta use anything I can to help lay the groundwork to one day motorboat a few of their sister-in-laws. :D

I don't know what's up, but at my local Target, they were still $29.99...

I don't think I'll get Springer/Ratbat unless it's on a sale...
Hopefully it'll happen soon.
