While it's nice seeing new things on the shelves now it's going to be really hard finding the next wave with this much overstock not likely to sell out by then. And there's likely more to come since that's all Siege and there's probably more Studio Series stuff coming.

Also got a bit of a laugh at the wording on the Target sale tags.

Well the next wave isnt scheduled to hit retail until after black friday fir siege and after the new year for studio series so I dont think there's a problem.

Weapon: Sword
went yesterday to the shopping mall of my town, hoping that, with the Christmas coming soon, they started to prepare the shelves for the holidays.
Well, they did, but the TF part was really underwelming.
Just a few Cyberverse figures and some Bumblebee (movie) toys.
Nothing on Siege or Studio Series at all.

Looks like I'll get my Christmas presents on Ebay/Amazon. As always.

Really wish I would remember to take my phone in with me when I go to my local Walmart. There is literally 1 deluxe Siege Hound on the Pegs, and on the bottom shelf 2 of those big Bumblee Cyberverse toys. The most pathetic Transformers section I've seen.

Target is kinda weird right now.

This guy has been hanging out for a couple weeks now.

Rung is one of those characters with divided reception. Those who are huge fans of the 2005-2018 IDW comics love him and want him, but most other fans don't really give a toss.

Energon Optimus super mode hat

Motto: "A knife is simple, using it ain't."
I walked over to Target (I live across the street from the only one in town) on a whim this morning, and they had nothing but Siege on the pegs. So I asked a worker to scan the deluxe and voyager to see what's in the back, and she brought out a single Wheeljack. Of course I got him, but I was surprised that there were no voyagers in the back, seeing as how the shelf was overflowing with Thundercrackers, so there was no room for any others.

As for Rung, I saw him in the wild a few times, passed on him each time. I don't care for the character, but he had a unique design, and if he had been a deluxe, I would have gotten him.

I don't know why, but I never have any luck finding people working at Target when I need them. There's never anybody in the toy department and only occasionally someone at the electronics counter. Back when they did the BOGO sale I did a lap around the store trying to find someone to check the back for me and the only employees I saw were on registers or the service desk, all tending to people. Where are these people hiding? I probably could have pushed the help button, but I was already pretty annoyed and had no idea how long it would take for someone to finally come out of hiding. Monday was basically the same, but I wasn't hunting for someone and nobody was in electronics so I just grabbed my stuff and left.

Went to Target today because I got a 10% off coupon for my 1 year Red Card anniversary. Hoped they had finally gotten ER Deluxe in, but no, still haven't seen any of them in person. All they had for ER was some Battle Masters and Micromasters and an Astrotrain. Looks like they've gotten in a few cases of the Siege Thundercracker wave in the last few weeks so that's annoying.

In Maine there's only 5 Targets in the entire state and they're all between 30 and 70 miles apart so the chances of someone frequenting more than one store is unlikely. You'd think they'd be better about keeping stock current. Still a long way from any kind of ER retail saturation around here.

Weapon: Sniper Rifle
So I was recently able to go on a TF hunt to my local Target and Wal-Mart for the first time in a couple months. I was hoping to find SS Roadbuster and possibly Netflix Hotlink, as well as at least seeing wave 1 of ER, but...

Wal-Mart was pretty much barren, with only a few Netflix deluxes mixed in with a few shelfwarming 35th anniversary figures. The only ER figure was a lone Grapple, and there was no sign of the Netflix voyagers.

Target was a different story, but not a better one. The shelves there were just as clogged with Siege as they were 4 months ago, and somehow the number of Shockwaves has multiplied to a whopping nine. The only ER figure was one leader Optimus. As for SS, I still have yet to see the last 2 waves of deluxes, but at least Mixmaster and Megatron have finally turned up.

Maybe all the new stuff came and went, and I just missed it...

Lucky you, I am still waiting for those 2 to turn up.

The display set up at my Wal-Mart has been wiped out, with only a few Siege deluxes and Grapples remaining, as well as a few Netflix deluxes and Megatrons. Hotlink is almost all gone, seems to be very popular. I wonder if there are people who couldn't get Skywarp subbing Hotlink for him because of the deco being similar.

Went to my local Target today to see about asking the people that work there if they have any Earthrise stuff not packed out yet in the back. I brought a dude one of the figures from the shelf so he would know what I was talking about, and I asked about Earthrise in general, not just the figure I was holding, and mentioned to him the new wave was supposed to be coming out. Literally all he did was scan the figure I was holding and said no, everything we have is out.
Looks like it will be continued ordering online.
