    20210719_192356.jpg Mira Mesa Target was a barren wasteland for TF but..
    I don't want to start another GI Joe related war on the toy aisles but took home from that target...

    I don't know if anyone who is connected to a Joe forum similar to this can report this hah.

    Nothing noteworthy TF MOTU or ML wise at Target Landess, North San Jose, Santa Clara.

    Santa Clara has a set of Triceratons on the shelf.

    On Sunday Mountain View Target had 11 punk frog sets

    Anyone else order the Ark from Target? Mine just switched to "Preparing to Ship", and I'm wondering if it's because they're coming from that new facility Hasbro opened in SoCal. Would be a welcome change of pace if Target actually comes through on a preorder and on time to boot!

    I ordered 2 (always order a backup from Target, even if it's also from Target). One is preparing to ship, one is still backordered.

    The 2 Tracks I had ordered from Target both shipped in the last couple of days too. So far so good...

    Serramonte has two Scavengers out, oddly. Considering these can be found half off from Hasbro’s ebay Store, I’m wondering who would even bother at this point.

    Yeah they still hire various artists to make box art of characters.

    BTW it rang up on the checkout on the mainline GI Joe Classified series dpci.

    Okay, Target says my Ark will be here this Friday! Guess I was right about them going through the SoCal shipping facility. Anybody else get the good news yet?

    As for actual sightings, Alhambra Target has some wave 2 Kingdom deluxes, a couple SS Hot Rods, and practically nothing else.

    BBTS looks to be shipping out the Ark and I see that Entertainment Earth is processing Rodimus Prime and G2 Ramjet. Ouch. Lol

    Is entertainment earth reliable? I’ve heard mixed things over the years.

    They've been 100% reliable for me, though I use them sparingly for various things. The arrival of items can sometimes be sooner than other shops as well. Example, I was hoping Commander Rodimus might get out early. I also received my kingdom wave 3 case early this week.

    Their shipping can suck though, it's subjective. Some items show free shipping, otherwise it's free shipping on $49+ of "in stock" items in general. Though, some preorders are eligible but some aren't? Makes total sense, not.

    I've had good experiences. I placed a new order for a Galvatron and Magnus case there and it shipped before my Amazon pre-order which I had placed when they were announced. The shipping cost is a bit much unless you place large orders that qualify for free shipping, but there's coupons codes you can use repeatedly to save $15 on each order.
