    From my understanding with the comments posted, it seems like they were never put up for sale in the first place.

    That is quite odd... especially with it showing "Sold Out". Go Target! :confused:

    Sounds like a distribution issue, perhaps brought on by the virus and it’s fallout. Hot Topic got their stock in yesterday, so I’m not sure why Target’s is so screwed up.

    i had also been checking every day for the funko pop! shockwave listing to go live. i even checked at like 4am this morning. woke up at 8am and it was "sold out", really pissed me off.. luckily i found buzzworthy high octane bee vs stinger 2-pack as a consolation prize. that put me in a better mood.

    It stares into the pits of your soul, forcing you to face demons you never knew existed.
    It was reported here and other sites it was an instant change in web status in a minute. No one reported slow or crashed site or even the ability to purchase.
    Pandemic. They haven't been able to fill pre-orders, inventory has been inconsistent in stores. They likely can't help it.

    Seems Target should have put it as a preorder instead of just marking it Sold Out.

    What was the purpose of the Target listing? Was there never any intention of making it available for purchase?

    Seems like we're still waiting for any signs of stocking in the US.

    The local store was supposed to get some in days ago, but they are still showing as in transit.
    Really hate going there daily to check, as I can't get there until after work and there are a lot of Funko scalpers locally.

    The general consensus seems to be in was never in stock and is supposed to be available this month.
