    Pardon me if this has been talked about, but I can't seem to find a thread anywhere. I hear there is a Target reset coming. Just wanted to know when it is and when's the best time to go check my local Targets. Thanks.

    Any new Kreo sets? I've been on the hunt for the blind packs for almost a week!

    Nice... My target has been useless recently. Hopefully they'll get the new stuff by the end of the week.

    I got my Weaponizers from Kmart , Optimus Maximus at Target , FOC from BBTS and picked up a Shockwave from Target yesterday for a friend. None of my Targets have reset yet. Everything is in the back!

    Only things on Clearance here are GI Joe Retaliation Ninja 3 packs and Role Playing Gear , Prime Masks, DOTM Deluxes , and Men In Black figures.

    Just called my Target, don't know why I didn't do it before I posted, but they said they are starting on the 29th and will be finished over the next 2 weeks.

    The local Targets here have gotten some of the new Kre-O sets, but I don't think they've gotten the blind-packs yet. And yes, the week of the 29th is the week the reset is scheduled for, though some stores will do it early and some may be late. But by this time just about everything should be in the stockroom.

    My target has been just a hole for DotM toys. Even the Prime Cyberverse Commander pegs have the DotM stuff on them. I don't believe they have every stocked the Prime commanders. This reset cannot come soon enough.

    I hadn't been to my local Target in a couple weeks, but I was just there the other day and they'd already finished a reset.

    our Target stores have been holding out on getting new stuff JUST for the reset. The online in store stock finder SAYS they have the FOC figures, but then they have no clue when I ask...for days....and they seem coy about it.

    My Target reset today, too; I arrived just as they were putting out the new stock. Really nice new section. I like.

    Give them the DPCI # for the figures. Watch them run the numbers and if the figures are there, they pretty much HAVE to open a box and give you the item(s) you want. That's what I did Tuesday because my Target has been barren all summer. Got my Shockwave that way!

    I'm still waiting for my Target to grow itself out of a jar & assume the physical position that the downtown Zellers currently does, but I'm sure the strategy for them will be the same as any other, that being to hit em up every day to the eventual point of being "that guy", regardless of your intentions.

    DCPI numbers?

    What are the Target's DCPI numbers for the new Generations FOC toys? Where have they been listed?

    I did, on Monday at WF Target, and Tuesday at 3 Targets, and they just had different stories":
    The computer is wrong.
    It's not where we can get to it, it's all mixed up in the RESET pile.
    No, you must be talking about a SUPER Target, we don't have those(even after checking his scanner thing).

    no, these must be part of some top secret project.

    Something similar happened to me when one of the new waves of Animated figures started cropping up. I asked to speak to the manager because, as I told them, I needed a figure for a birthday present and their store was the only place that had them. Again, they refused to go to the back to get it due to some bullshit excuse. I kindly informed them that I would call the corporate office and let them know about the huge inconvenience I had to go through to get a product that was in their stores but they were too lazy to get. After that, they were able to miraculously get the box onto the floor within 4 or 5 minutes.

    Oh yea, if you DO go that route, ask for the manager's name. They get into serious trouble over things like that and they'll pretty much do whatever you want them to once you get their name and threaten to call corporate.
