    Well, at least one of the POPs I’d like is at Hot Topic. Their exclusives are the easiest to get.

    ...Captain America is now a furry. Not sure if this or the time he was a nazi is worse.

    Target getting Shockwave is the worst possible scenario.

    Target has a unrelenting ability to destroy the boxes on 98% of the pops they get. They also like to hide the new ones at electronics and cherry pick who they give them to. Seen this first hand this last 2 weeks with the Venom release. With Gamestop you preorder it, go in on release day, pickup a pop that is still in its pristine shipping box, pay, and leave. No drama. Took me close to seven times to find a Starscream that had its box undamaged to the extent I would accept it and buy it. Never seen another since then. So, Target is the not the optimal place to get pops. Bumblebee I had a easier time as I walked in as they were stocking them and got one still in the shipper; one in a 10,000 chance. I mean you are lucky to get anything off the shelves in the toy section at most Targets that does not have a boxcutter slice across the top or bottom. At least with those I can get 15% off for the damage. If I get lucky and find an unopened case I can get pristine boxes if the box has not been smashed already; another all to common issue.

    Well, guess I will go do some hunting. May the chances be always in my favor.

    Im guessing this is a case of “your mileage may vary” as I was easily able to obtain a couple Starscreams Pops form my local Targets for my wife and both were in undamaged boxes. Probably a symptom of your local Targets versus all in general.

    Never-the-less, good luck on the hunt!

    It's based off his brief time as Cap-Wolf, I believe.
    The 90s wasn't too kind to heroes...

    Target getting this is annoying. Last NYCC they only got 3 pops, but they only got 6 of each. I got dad to go to my closet Target and he said they was almost 100 people there at 7am. Hopefully Shockwave won't be like Danny Phatnom and sell out online in under a minute.

    Edit: I hope the limited supply of last SDCC and NYCC was just due to corona, this years ECCC was pretty flooded with most of the exclusives I got.

    Looks like Shockwave (along with a few others) is today's listing in Target's Geek Out. So in just under 6 hrs from this post the preorder will go live.

    No. Probably not until after Funkon Summer 2021 lottery winners date after August 4th
