Hey guys, I found PotP leaders @ Target in Duarte, CA
HERE WE GO!
We’re they on the shelf or did you have to ask for them?
Somehow I had a feeling that these would show up at California targets today. Seemed like it.
Onwards to the stores guys..
C H A R G E ! ! ! !
I'm not about to trust Target (or Walmart & especially Toys R Us) to have these guys, I'll wait for preorders to go up on Bigbadtoystore... Any day now.
You're doing it all wrong...
Brickseek showed a local target having a limited number of the DPCI in stock, but I called to confirm and they said they couldn't find it. Might be better to go looking after the holiday.
Absolutely zero interest in them... still turns up at a Target local to me first
Either your store was the only one (possible!) or they sold out all over. No other Targets are showing them.
What was the dcpi on leaders again?
Nevermind, found it.
Every time I get caught up!
anybody else go shopping with their s/o at Target and have to disappear like Superman to go stealth hunting for TFs and be back at the food aisle or wherever in under a min? ... I’ve bowled over a few lil ones in my haste unfortunately
We are still waiting in our country for PotP to arrive.
Either probably before X-mas or in the New Year.
Probably most stores are busy on selling items that are on sale to move the inventory stocks.
And practical X-Mas shoppers will just buy things that are on the sale bins rather than items in SRPs.
What country is that?
I'm figuring we might see them in New Zealand by March if we're lucky. We've still only got Titans Return Wave 3 and random bits of TLK on our shelves from what I've seen (not that the scalpers around here help, which is arguably worse for such a small country).
Time to put that $100 VISA gift card I got for my birthday to good use...
I'm worried that POTP stocks might be adjusted / controlled considering there's still too many TR figures in the shelves on sale compared to CW figures on sale last year that only Wheeljack and Scattershot left as pegwarmers.
I can't fault the local distributor if ever they control or adjust their orders to Hasbro as too many pegwarming items is detrimental to their projected profits. For a distributor, they want to move the old stocks fast so that they can move in the new items. In the end, it's still business from their end.
In the case of POTP, I'll get the figures I want and will not wait for it to go on sale and go cramming buying it.
My POTP Insta-Buys:
- Optimus Prime
- Rodimus Prime
Real Talk though:
WAITING ON SALE kind of buyers are killing the toy business.
But I can't fully blame all of them. Maybe just some of them.
Moral Lesson is, get the figures you want when you see it.
Buy it in SRP, the better.
So close to where I am right now, but 14+ hours at Disney has me exhausted af right now. Time for sleep instead.
I usually say I'll be back in a minute and I disappear to have a looksie lol
