    And when I finally decided to go get him, gone.

    Found three sets at the first Target I checked on my lunch break. That's how it should be, if they're going to be too lame to put the set for sale online!

    Had actually called and planned to head there tonight in the rain for that one.

    Not sure to be angry or not.

    Got mine this morning in Peoria, Arizona. Checked one Target that said they might have them and got nothing, checked another as I was passing it and scored.

    Yea, this is happening here. Store A will tell me they don’t have an exclusive, and to try Store B and C. Store B will tell me they don’t have it, but Store A has it in-stock and to try there.

    Target employees perform the reset.
    Not the hasbro rep.
    They only look for their product is making it to shelves.
    Safe bet that Mattel, funko & the other toy companies wouldn't like Hasbro relocating their toys.
    Too many fibs in this story.
    Shame on you target.
    Just reset the aisle already.

    That's weird and funny! Oddly reminds me of that one scene in Invader Zim when gir explodes from a background turkey and yells "it was ME! I was the turkey all along!"
    ...
    "I was wondering how that got there"

    Wouldn’t to be surprised if some employees get a bribe from scalpers. We’re at a time where those stores are willing to hire anyone and a lot of scumbags are coming out the woodwork’s since all the decent hard-working people are quitting those jobs.

    My brother had that happen on TR Broadside. There was an extra titan master in the cockpit and the one as the head, in the box.

    I've had my suspicions that some employees may be a plant, or otherwise involved with some sort of dealings in this realm.
    Especially when you see one in the isle, ask a question specific to the items you're looking for and they respond with, " I'm from another department" as they were just digging around in the shelves like I would typically do.

    The idea has some merit. I mean, if I were working for a company such as Walmart, where employees are easily replaceable, I might just take up an offer of an extra $50-$100 a week just to relocate/reserve some requested items for " a customer". Why not? You don't owe the company any loyalty. They certainly give you none.

    I worked for a third party, stocking shelves at Safeway for six months one time. I was contracted to stock certain products for the stores, but product resets were done by store employees. Promotions were done by product reps.

    There's more to getting products onto store shelves than most people know about.

    They had about two left after I bought one, seems like they come in packs of three.

    Seems to happen on occasion, especially with box sets, IIRC there were a few anecdotes of folks ending up with an extra Dynamus for Quickswitch in the Velocitron set.

    I’m glad the pricing on this set worked out favourably in CDN. It tipped me in the direction of buying after being on the fence.

    If you’re at all a beast fan, do NOT sleep on this Nemesis Primal. He doesn’t seem like much at first glance given the same black fur for most of him, but he really pops in hand. The deep purple is gorgeous with the sculpted texture on those parts. The head sculpt is suitably menacing. The teal and silver are really premium and rich.

    Instant shelf presence and just exudes character.
