My Local Target's TF section is basically gone! What's it mean?

    It's reduced to two rows of pegs only containing PCC 2 packs and then a Leader Starscream and a few Human Alliance on the shelf below it.

    Absolutely no deluxes anywhere.

    What does this mean? Is it a reset? Should I be happy because they somehow got rid of their shelfwarmers and the new waves are now coming in? Or is it a bad thing?

    I dunno how they got rid of the tons of Skullgrins and Thunderwings they had. Last time I checked deluxes were almost $14. Do they sell stock that they can't move to discount stores?

    Smells like a reset to me. My local shelves have been pretty empty too, and it's just about end of month.

    What exactly does a reset entail? Like getting rid of everything old and starting with only new waves?

    The shelves of ALL the stores in my town are the same. walmart, kmart, meijer, target, TRU, Kroger...if they have anything filling them, they are still HFTD and a couple RTS wave 1. if not, it's just bare. been like this since right after Christmas. i found 1 Kupp, 1 Jazz, 2 Turbo Tracks and some of the tanks. i love the hunt but it's getting to the point where if i want something ,im just going to order it.

    The Targets around here just did re-sets this past week,so there's a good chance that they just pulled all of them until they get the re-set finished.

    Two of the Targets reset their toy aisles today to make room for the new Thor toys.

    My Target appears to be doing this as well, so I bought a Fallback to redeco as an Outback before they all disappear.

    This happened to my old Target when RoTF started dying down. No Transformers other than one or two HA Skids, then a few weeks later they got a bunch of HftD toys.

    Spring resets are a-coming. Your Target probably sold well.

    My local Target was the same, it was literally less than one shelf and down to like a handful of figures... Then couple of days later it was chock full of RTS Wave 2 stuff, all the deluxes, BiS 2 pack etc. But I am in Australia....

    Damn, looks like all the new Thor toys ect. got put out at the local Target , and they've smashed all the TF's together into a small corner, d'oh. Maybe my walmart will get the new ones first since their reset made the TF's section huge, even though they barely have any Generations toys they have massive space for tons more of them.

    Mine did that too. booo.


    Same here. I figure the amount I spend in gas and time is worth the 1 or two bucks more I pay for a figure, plus shipping. no sales tax for the win.
