    I saw a box that the Target exclusive Jazz came in the box shows box # out of 1125. So that means if there are 8 figures in a box. There are a total of 9000 jazz repaints period. So out of all the Target in the USA there is only 9000 split up between them all. With all the demand for this figure makes it a rare find

    #1 - There are WAY more than 9,000 in the U.S.
    #2 - Not news.

    Sounds like something a scalper would cite on an eBay auction. ZOMG!

    I thought it what be good news since so many can't find a g1 jazz because Target only order 1125 cases. I been to 3 Targets in my area and of them sold out. The manager said they don't even have anymore on order and one employee said they may get some more in. Since most targets already released them. I'm thinking 9000 seems about right since all stores are sold out.

    I'm not sure about that. I've frequently seen ~10,000 quoted as a typical number for a store-exclusive TF. Granted, that seems a little low for how well the movie line has been selling, but the number was probably decided long before the toyline hit shelves.

    Also, according to Wikipedia, there are 1488 Targets in the U.S., which works out to less than 1 case per store. I know my nearest Target has already gotten at least 2 cases.

    So I dunno.

    If the box was only an indication of one wave of the full production run, that'd make a little more sense. Just a hunch, but I think Target exclusives push the 10,000 mark, as they're not impossibly hard to find in general. Also, it would explain away the problem of stores receiving multiple cases when the number suggests not every store gets one.
