So Am I keeping this ancient thread alive all myself? :-({|=

But seriously, I've got my Target app set to alerts when the Cracker/Warp Earthrise 2 pack comes in, and they notify me at like 3 am via email.  SO I started sending them through my phone. And they sell out by the time I notice it. 

My most recent time I was ON my phone and the alert came in.

I put it in my cart, fumbled about shipping to store/home, and in the five seconds it took, it was out of my cart, sold out.

Has ANYONE been able to lock this pair down to own? I saw Entertainment Earth was selling it for almost double, $109!

I picked one up locally when it popped up in stock. The cases come in 3, so when it shows up, you can take a ride to the store. You may have to ask nicely for an employee to get it form the back if you don't see it on the shelf. Just give them the DCPI number.

The notification is actually about 5 minutes later than when it becomes available on the website. So by the time you click on the link, it's probably gone.

I bought myself Omega Supreme...a benefit to getting rid of my old ball-n-chain!

I am jealous. I just started collecting again last month and nowhere has Omega Supreme left :( I'm considering Scorponok but I'd rather have Omega Supreme.

Yeah, I think they adjusted production on Omega based  on Tripticon being price slashed everywhere last year.  I got him from Best Buy with a 25% off toy coupon...the only time I've used one of their generally useless coupons.

 

Also seeing in the Walmart clearance thread that the G1 reissue of Astrotrain is clearanced at some stores to $25.

I picked up Snapdragon and Starscream earlier this week.  I have yet to open Snapdragon.

 

I was really pleasantly surprised by Starscream.  Both modes are fantastic, transformation is intuitive but with some surprising bits, and it really looks great in either form.  The only thing missing is landing gear and being able to open the cockpit, but that's really minor.  This is a G1 size Starscream that looks like it fell out of the show.

 

I thought I was done with buying the different seeker decos -- I only got one of the mold in Siege -- but I went ahead and tracked down the Target two pack.

I have a LOT of preorders right now, I've actually lost track. Elita-1, Bumblebee, Soundwave, the Ironhide 2 pack, something on Pulse... uh.. probably more?

 

I picked up Scorponok, Target had ONE when I was there to look at $8 Spinmaster Batman figures... imagine how that went...

 

No Skylynx near me thankfully, so it won't taunt me.

 

Got 2 G1 Astrotrain for 9 each, figure I can trade the second one.
