    Gah! I was at Reston Target a couple hours ago and they didn’t have the leaders on the shelf. Were they in the back?

    The worker looked up the DPCI and got them from the back. Sorry! If @Chaddicus ends up finding them before our NOVA meetup on the 19th, I can get these to you instead.

    There's a shelf tag for the Siege Leaders at Mosaic Target, but the figures still aren't out of the stockroom yet. (Maybe tomorrow?)

    Still haven't seen the Botbots multi packs anywhere in person.

    I managed to snag a set from the Sterling Target just now. DPCI did the trick there.

    For those asking employees to check the DPCI, are you entering the DPCI in the price scanners to see its results? I haven't asked because entering the number in the scanner returns "N/A", so I figured it wasn't worth the employee's time to check.

    Are the scanner's results reliable?

    The price scanners at the stores I regularly go to no longer allow folks to just type in a DPCI and see stock numbers and aisle location. I remember using them to help hunt a year ago but they don't seem to do that anymore. I usually just call and ask or if I'm already near/at a store, I just ask an employee. Brickseek no longer seems to work for me either for the Siege wave for Target (at least for me) and Walmart inventory always seems to be wrong as well.

    Grabbed Seige Prime and UM from forest hill target this morning. Still 2 Megs, a prime and a shockwave as of 8:55am. Also, they were in the process of installing self checkouts when I stopped in this morning.

    Okay, so the DCPI IS working, but you have to ask an employee to use their little PDA thing to check the system.

    I spoke to a friend of mine that works at a Target store and was told that it is possible for a figure to be in stock and not show up in the system and NOT be a return. If the case is not scanned properly when it's brought into the store it can cause the figure to appear as if it isn't in stock. That was his theory on what happened with me with the Megatron.


    I have now confirmed that brickseek doesn't work for ANY new toys. We'll just have to call stores or go hunting.

    Is Wal-Mart carrying any siege other than deluxes? The new reset Plano is out at fair lakes and it only has spots for deluxes.

    Did Fair lakes carry the POTP Voyagers? I don't remember seeing them there.

    I plan to return a Hound I bought to one of the targets today. I did open it. Yes, it did have a flaw. I am going to repack it. Please don't get mad at me if they decide to still put it on the shelf. I tell them I open the defective items. They still put them on the shelf half the time.
