I got mine Tuesday. Best Voyager figures in years. Just amazing.


My Blitzwing sadly doesn't have locking tabs in the shoulders (even tried the fix from Ps video) but it really doesn't hinder anything. I would even say I like him more then Springer, and I effn love this Springer!

I admit, I made an unmanly sound when this came up.

Anyone have the DCPI number for these guys??

I hit two Targets and a Wal Mart this morn with no luck... I am chomping at the bit to nab a Springer...

Picked up both today at a local Target.

Sad to say, I regret paying the retail of 22.99 for Blitzwing. He is nowhere near worthit. Horrible all around. Hasbro needs to quit using that soft rubber bullshit. My nosecone won't even stay tabbed. Springer is going to a buddy of mine....

I shouldve went with my gut and left them on the shelf

It's the same number for all the Generations voyagers. Individual figures don't get unique numbers.

WOW! I'm floored that this is actually in my state. Normally I'd have to wait longer to see something like this roll in here. It's down in Olympia though and I'll be damned if I'm going to drive my 6 cylinder beast 80 miles one-way just to gamble on the figures being in stock by the time I get down there. There's close to 2 dozen Targets between here and Olympia and more if I want to start heading north towards the border so I'll try my luck closer to home. Those are darn nice looking figures and two that are on my "Must Have" list so I'm thinking tomorrow might be a good day to toss the kids in the car and do some local scouting around.

Went out of my way and hit up both Targets on my way home from work...despite the imminent danger of thunderstorms lol... NO LUCK...yet :grin:

I will hit them up again Monday after I drop my kiddo off at school...I want that Springer... Blitzwing? Ehhh, I could take him or leave him...afterall the QC issues I read about I doubt I will get him. I never liked the G1 version, totally passed on the Animated version.

I would've like to seen Astrotrain as a Voyager...Passed on the deluxe Generations years ago. Although, if you went by the G1 cartoon you'd need a Titan class for all the Cons to cruise around in him lol

Call first. Give them the DPCI to see if they even have any Voyager Class figures in stock. If they do, have them direct you to toys. Once connected, have the person look for Blitzwing and Springer. If they say they have them, tell them you're on your way from wherever, and it's going to take awhile. They will hold it at the customer service desk for you. I've done this countless times.

Is it possible that they can do that for at least 24 hours? I'm about to call my local Target and ask if they have them in stock, but I can't stop by today, but I can probably stop by tomorrow.

All I can say is ask. I know they'll do it for a couple of hours, but I don't know if they'll do it overnight. EDIT: Call closer to closing time and see if they have it. Tell them you won't be able to make it in until tomorrow and see if they can hold it until tomorrow afternoon. They might just say yes. (I mean, since it's going to the CSD overnight when the store isn't open, I can't imagine it's that much trouble for them.)

If that doesn't work, call about 10:00 AM. They open at 8:00 but new stuff isn't stocked until about 10 or so.

Thanks, Autobot. I'll call within an hour and ask if they can do an overnight holding for me.
