    It does, just very briefly. There was a thread posted a few weeks back that talked about why distribution is so bad right now. The world situation has cause major backups, so much so that manufacturers like Hasbro can’t fulfill all the orders put in by retailers. In a normal year you’d see stocked shelves and shelfwarming, like with Siege. The problem is Hasbro has to send out partial orders as they get them in from overseas. A target may order 10 cases of leader figures, and they’ll get them all eventually, but there’s not enough to go around so Hasbro will have to fill said orders in increments as they get them in. So instead of all 10 cases at once, they’ll get 1 or 2 at one period, and then the rest at another. That’s why nothing ever sticks around. So little is getting put out that it flies off the shelf. Unless you’re there the day they stock or sometimes the day after, you’re gonna be out of luck.

    Once all the supply lines return to normal, I expect we're going to see a ton of everything we barely saw go straight from shipping containers to Ross.

    Santa Ana NW Target has TF Shatter figure on clearance for $5.99 if anyone want it. (will be in clearance aisle, I’ll put it behind all the other clearance toy)

    Be sure to check your clearance aisle at your local target to see any TF figure might be on clearance.

    10 T-Wrecks and about that number too of Origin Bee at Target Chino Hills. Not much else though they had a Suicide Squad Bloodsport which looks really good next to the T-Wrecks mountain in the Neca section.

    Walmart across the street had nothing except for Cheetors and Arcee RED figures.

    There hasn’t been much in the stores at all. I used go in morning daily to Target in order to get the figures I was looking for. Even then, the stock was limited. I agree that you distribution is totally jacked up. I preorder most of my figures from hasbro pulse just to guarantee I get the figure I’m looking for. I’m to the point where I rather pay the extra for shipping then deal with stores.

    if anyone else is looking - GameStop app will tell you what stores have what. I picked up black suit Superman at Madison GameStop yesterday, they are also on sale for $19.99, I used my monthly coupon to knock another $5 off so that was nice
