    OptionZero said I should share my methods so here goes.

    I go to target in the morning and find the person working the toy aisle. I have them look up whatever I'm looking for in their system whether they have it or not. Then I ask what the stock numbers are at other Targets. Now I have numbers to work with. By keeping track of how many figures come to a case I can figure out which store might have a new shipment.

    Now! Keeping track of all those numbers I can go back the next day and repeat the process, Quarryville for numbers rising at other stores in the area. When those numbers go up by multiple of whatever the case count is then I know there was a restock. So I go to that store and get my toys.

    Picked up an Ark at Target Vallejo and there's still one left. Also 1 T-Wrecks on the shelf but there should be another case of 2 in the back.

    Nothing at Target Walnut Creek this morning thought they did have McFarlane DC Steppenwolf and non-armored Darkseid.

    Target SF West still has this Optimus Primal hiding around the store in case anyone missed it. Looks like a return.

    Cool. Hopefully it means the backordered from my target order will be fulfilled as it is stated...


    Interesting where it was placed...

    As of around 3pm this afternoon, the Valencia Target had around seven Origin Bumblebees on the pegs, one each of the BB SS two-packs on the shelves, and a couple WFC-K T-Wrecks on an endcap. Good hunting!

    Let me know if you find any good information. I’m in the same process of taking pics and pricing everything. Apparently if your collection is over 20k you have to get it appraised. Not sure if you’ve come across something similar?

    I haven't yet, but I figured that would be a part of it. I also got some information from a video Bobby Skullface put out a few years back:
