It's not a TFW-specific thing, it's at Target's web site:

http://sites.target....pci=087-06-2386

Just change the URL to have whatever DPCI you want to search. Here are some of the most recent:

087-06-0631 Transformers Entertainment Pack $29.99
087-06-0565 Movie All Star Deluxe $11.99
087-06-0609 All Star Voyager $19.99
087-06-0641 All Star Ultra Optimus $29.99


Are these Target exclusives? I thought the Entertainment Pack and the All Star line were Asia only. Is this list pre-Toy Fair?
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Yup. Pre-Toy Fair.

Rats. I was afraid of that. Hopeful, but figured that was the case.

All that stuff is in Target's computer. Just don't expect it to ever start listing as "In Stock".

I live in Maryland, and I've found all the current Transformers Prime figures. I first found Optimus sitting on a shelf at Toys'R'Us. It took a little traveling to do it, but I found the rest at Target's. I've been to 3 different Target's. All of them were in the back, and I had to have customer service get them from the back for me. I got Megatron and Wheeljack at one, and Soundwave and Cliffjumper at another. I did find two Megatron's sitting on the shelf at a local Kmart, so I picked up one to have as a back up in case I destroy the one I'm currently customizing. I left the other behind. My fiancee found Soundwave at the local Toys'R'Us, but I had her leave it there since I already found it. I know I could be buying these and selling them on Ebay, but then I'd be doing what I hate that scalpers do. I've searched one Target so far for Arcee and Ratchet, but no luck yet.

Does anyone know where you can find the list of which characters come with which waves? Like I know Ratchet and Arcee are next, but what about Bulkhead, or Starscream? Am I better off searching Ebay for the first edition ones? I got my Bumblebee in the first edition from ebay, and glad I did. It looks so much better than the second RID edition.

The wiki; http://tfwiki.net/wi...Prime_(toyline)

Also, BBTS is useful in figuring out case assortments.

robotkingdom.com has a breakdown of the waves of deluxes at least.

Edit: the thing I like about the RK listings (and I have also used entertainment earth before for this) is that they tell you how many of which figures are each case. Wish the wiki did that.

Not my finest work, but when life gives you lemons, they're yellow so just paint black stripes on them and call them Bumblebee. Kids will buy them.

Wave 5 of the DotM deluxes (Air Raid, Armor Topsin, Dark Steel) has been out here and there and has hit partial saturation. Kohl's and Target in particular have gotten them in in decent numbers.


This is possible?? icon-bee.gif

I found some Prime First Edition Cliffjumpers yesterday, after not seeing anything on the pegs at my nearest TRU for a few weeks. Stuff is out there.

No Bulkhead, though.

I'm blanking a bit. What were the All-Star Voyagers supposed to be? The only Trilogy toys I remember seeing were deluxes and Trailer Prime, the latter of which matches that $30 pricepoint.

I don't think we ever found out about any specific ones. Presumably it would have included the new-head versions of Highbrow and Lugnut.
