    K Mart seems to have a lot of these. Heard reports of sightings at the NYC Astor Place K Mart and just saw them at the Wildwood Crest NJ K Mart.

    Regional chain Meijer appears to be stocking them too - sighted in at least two Ohio cities.

    Does anybody have their item number for both Tankor and Rattrap that I can have an associate type in?

    None of my stores around me are restocking generations due to movie gimmick crap eating up space and not moving =A=

    Targets, Wal*Marts, K-Marts, and Toys R Us all have separate merchandising stripes for Deluxe Generations vs. AoE Generations. They are different DPCIs.

    I don't know if you meant AoE in general isn't moving in your area preventing new stock? But that's not how ordering works. If stores are sold through on a DPCI they usually order more of that DPCI.

    Chances are your stores are just bad at ordering.

    I've been checking the Target that's literally on my way to work practically daily since I've came back from Botcon and they have not restocked IDW deluxes in 2 weeks. I've checked out other stores in the area and talked to people in my area, but rattrap hasn't shown up at all yet. Does anyone know when the Target reset is?

    Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I've seen them put them out on Saturday Nights before....so I don't really believe them. So it can be whenever they want to...

    There is a difference in resetting shelves and getting in new stock. I think shelf resets are certain days for certain departments, but stores can get new stock to restock shelves whenever.

    But go figure that my closest Target got another box of wave 2 in the last time they got more IDW deluxes. :lol  There were more figures than there was shelf space for them so I don't know when that store will be getting more of them, which stinks cause I'm really excited for both Rattrap and Tankor.

    This will vary from store to store, but at the last one I worked, toys was usually done on Tuesdays. The team that was in charge of maintaining items in-stock usually does "research", on a weekly basis, on what needs replenishing. They usually do a good job on keeping up with a busy store. From there, it's relying on getting items from the distribution center, onto the floor; I swear at times it seemed a daunting task in itself.

    As for a reset, I think there's usually a "revision" of sorts done in toys before the holidays begin.


    But anyway, hope to see Rattrap and his wavemates down here soon. Would be nice for a running change of the countless waves of AoE around here.

    No, they literally got rid of the pegs for Gens and replaced it with Spiderman crap at Walmart and replaced it with AOE deluxes at Target.

    Sme thing happened with DOTM... Gens figures got skipped.
