I ordered these two packs from Target last week. Much to my surprise, I found them along with all of the other Target exclusives at the Hoffman Estates Target off 59 this morning. Hopefully I'll have some galleries for all of you by next week. :)

[color=deeppink]I've never seen exclusives in Tescos before, but now I'm aware, I may have to start shopping in the Hypermarts

Dirge looks cool.[/color]

Did the Target in Canada have them...oh wait.

Target Exclusives are known to sell at Zeller's in Canada, since there's no Target there.

Tesco have had exclusives for ages and ages. They had racks and racks of the Bumblebee two pack for ages that nobody seemed to want to buy. But really it's a toss up as to whether Tesco or Woolworths get the Target exclusives.

You can pretty much always count on Asda to get Walmart exclusives though, as they're the same company.

as Tekka said.. Tesco stock target exclusives :) hell... the one nearest me STILL has the legends 4 pack with Cybertron Megatron and Optimus, alongside their movie counterparts...

their pretty lax on keeping the toy shelves stocked though... hence my saying "ill be extremely lucky to see these surface"..

[color=deeppink]Maybe my local stores are worse than most for exclusives, then. Maybe I should travel around a bit more! :grin:

Woolworths are pretty good 'round here for exclusives, though.[/color]

The £35 price is a lie. They're just calling it reduced to make you think "Bargain!", when £15 is actually the intended regular price. It's all very mysterious and evil. :evil:

In Canada, these are available at Zellers, without the comic.

Found these today at Target in Norman Oklahoma along with TFA three packs. Got both two packs and the Stealth Lockdown three pack. Not really diggin' Roadbuster. The front end is very loose on mine in alt mode. The rest are awesome especially Ratbat.

All the ones I looked at had the comics backwards.

I ordered from Target's website and got mine today. I've yet to see either of these "in the wild", but suspect that when I make my weekly pilgrimage, they'll be there.

I've only opened Springer and Ratbat, but so far I've had none of the QC issues previously reported. Good stiff joints, but not too stiff. Good paint apps. All in all, two very nice figures.

I'll keep my fingers crossed on the other pack.
