FIRST POWER OF THE PRIMES SIGHTING - Deluxe Toys In Arizona With Target DCPI Number
Those of us who've been around the block a few times knew to be expecting Power of The Primes sometime before the end of the year. We just might not have expected a first sighting quite this early. Arizona, frequently a magical land of new toys has yielded the first sighting of the new Generations imprint, as Jazz and Dreadwind were found at a Target in Sierra Vista by Skalor
. A photo of the receipt was provided which also gives us a Target DCPI number which appears to be new for this line - which means it can be used to do some inventory searching right from home! Click through for the pictures and more info!
The DCPI number for the Deluxes, per this receipt, is 087-06-5863. Comparing it to a receipt we have on hand from a purchase of Titans Return wave 5 toys shows this as a new number. Inventory at Target can be checked through a web application on Brickseek
. It isn't necessarily a definitive answer to if your local store will have these on hand, but it's a good starting guideline before you try any hunting. Skalor reported that the Dinobots were not to be seen, though that may simply reflect that only part of one case was stocked out to the shelves at that time.
A quick check on Brickseek's tool shows other Arizona Targets (notably around Tuscon) also show stock. However, other locations we've tested in the more eastern part of the country don't have anything yet. Good luck to all the toy hunters!
