    Yeah I've been asking again and again for people to post the barcodes or at least scan the damn thing and post the URL it points them to.

    No help.

    Which is weird. People had been really good on it up until the last two waves or so.

    It's been really weird, for sure. It's like the first thing you normally see. Picture of box with a receipt. Or even just a "Hey, the DPCI for X is ___". Radio silence despite lots saying they got them and at Target.

    Yep. It's very un-forum like to see it with this level of regularity.

    For people asking about barcodes or DPCI's. It wont help you. Its the DPCI/Barcode from the shelf tag. They're sent to stores by the assortment and stores go by the assortment DPCI.

    @ophyjgjhnfn @T-Hybrid

    They'd just scan/check the dpci meant for the website for Waspinator/Shadow Panther and then say they dont have it.

    Sadly I am going to assume at this point we will not see them tomorrow. Usually 1-2 days before "release" date, they begin to ship and charge people. None of mine have moved past "not yet shipped".

    That's all I've been looking for. Thank you!

    Are you able to scan Walmart's as well?

    Here are the target scans via their app for Waspinator and Shadow Panther. Hope it helps!! I haven’t come into a thread often enough where the info wasn’t already available. But here it is

    That will not help you in a store.

    Target would use those numbers and see the listings made for the website. Target gets things based on the Assortment DPCI.

    I'm going to explain this to make sure nobody gets confused. Target only has seperate DPCI's for every figure now because they end up on the website, where the Target Warehouses get solid cases of each figure. Stores still get the assortments, which have their own DPCI. Giving a specific figures DPCI to a Target employee will not help, as even if they have waspinator in stock, it will not show that they do, because it shows the inventory under the assortment DPCI, not the individual DPCI.

    This is this way with all retailers that sell online now. As of I think Siege or Earthrise, the solid cases became available to online retailers. Hasbro made a big deal of it when they announced it. Its the reason why we saw Studio Series ROTF Bumblebee LONG before we saw Gnaw available to online retailers or why BBTS/EE sometimes ship the cases/sets before they ship the single figures. They come from 2 different fulfillment methods.

    The website listings/links would help though, in the off chance the site gets stock before the stores we can get too.

    Also, who is Tigatron's case mate? Was it a repacked Starscream or is that still in flux?

    Clarification is most appreciated! The info from their website/app is helpful to some degree in the event that online receives stock before stores. Also, it could "technically" show you the nearest store that has the assortment for people to roll the dice and check for themselves.

    [smartass]That's an EAN, not a UPC![/smartass]

    More helpful:
    I have been maintaining a list of UPC and EAN barcodes for several years here:
    UPC/EAN barcode list for modern Transformers toys

    So no need asking random people for something which you can easily find in that list. Just bookmark the link for future reference!

    The ask was always for people with the figures to scan the barcodes to help link us back to the online listings. Not so we could find them in store, but so that if they became available there before we found them in store we'd have a shot at ordering them.

    Amazon remains far more optimistic than I do about its ability to bend space/time and deliver these figures to me.

    Amazon put up Shadow Panther, Waspinator, Pipes, and Slammer up for pre-order, but the site states that, "we are unable to ship to your address." :mad: 


    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Also, Amazon has Slammer and Pipes street dated for release on Jan. 1st 2022.

    Are you sure they were Amazon listings and not 3rd party sellers?

    This is some serious "conflicting realities/alternate universe" level of absurdity. I feel for all of us trying to figure things out right now.
