Colma Targets had one Omega Supreme, one Arcee (I grabbed both) and mostly just Ironhide, Prowl, Snowbcat, Demolisher, Scorpy and Prime taking up space. I saw one Landmine but a kid grabbed it up. I also a single Saw Autobot Whirl at the Greatland Target.

 

Did anyone notice Target rotated all the TF stuff to back of the aisle? Isnt that for like the slow selling stuff?

I don't mind posting to the new forum, although this topic does really fit into both forums. (Can one topic show up in multiple forums?) Should this topic be closed?

 

The Target in Sunnyvale also moved the TFs to the back. In front were Justice League stuff, poker tables, and Spider-Man 2 stuff. My understanding is that manufacturers (ie Hasbro) pay for those placements, so it might mean that TFs aren't as new as other Hasbro properties, so they decided to invest in the others. Or, they're selling fine without the placement, so they decided to stop spending on it. Or it could be they're selling badly and they decided to cut their losses. :)

Saw reissue Skids today at a San Jose TRU (the one off of McKee Rd) - most likely the other local TRUs will have him shortly as well. He appears identical to the Japanese version including chrome gun and missiles. Not much else of interest at that TRU (surprised that Sideswipe didn't ship with him since they're both "Series VIII") or at the nearby Target (Target did have Omega Supreme and Demolisher).

Yesterday (8/23) at the WalMart in Milipitas I saw two Hounds and two Silverstreaks. (No Dead End - curses...)

 

EDIT: Found Dead End today (8/24) at the WalMart in Mountain View - only other thing of note was a Silverstreak. Both of these WalMarts were getting to be pretty bare-bones for Energon product with half-filled pegs (except Ironhide :roll ), hopefully there will be some new stuff soon (maybe once "Back to School" winds down).

FINALLY! Found Energon Downshift at the Target in Mira Mesa - San Diego... I got the last one there. He is SOOOO awesome!!

 

They also had a bunch of other "Powerlinx Battles" repacked figures.

 

The Toys R Us next door had nothing new... as usual.

Autobot Whirl was at the Sunnyvale Target this morning. Nothing else of note, though.
