Just got a shipped notice for Wreckgar
Indeed, that was not a typo! Someone else in the CA sightings thread mentioned it and I checked my orders, sure enough it's true!
Nice, I'll talk to CS later and see if I can get them to get moving on my preorder as well.
Your stores are significantly more stocked then the ones near me.
I should note that I talked to them because I tried to cancel cause I thought my local Target had some I could just buy then (I wasn’t able to even though they received some today) but when I tried to cancel I was told I couldn’t cancel cause it could be pulled from shipment. So that’s why I reached out
My Ark arrived. They didn't put it in a box - they just slapped a label on it and shipped it. To be fair, they said that might happen when I ordered it. Wasn't going to keep the box anyway...
Give it about a week. In Michigan they are already beginning to put the new Buzzworthy stuff out and Target has been purposely holding back a lot of figures FOR that reset as they, per my sources, need to send photos of nice full aisles once it is done to corporate.
Its why a lot of the action figures are so light... Transformers, Jurassic World, so on. They have them... just sitting on them.
Which ones would they be holding back? They could be selling the shit right now.
Like I said, brand new stuff is coming in boxes marked that its for a reset so a lot of targets are holding back. Some though are being told they can put them out early... for example, Origin Bumblebee is being released in a ton of stores in South East Michigan but at other ones there is nothing. Or the new Target Exclusive Jurassic Park Legacy Jeep and Tim figure... some stores putting it other, other ones holding for the reset.
It all depends on the store directors and the higher ups who are giving the orders.
The Kingdom core class Starscream, Megatron, Soundwave, and Optimus all say "in stores visit your store to purchase" but aren't available for shipping. That's why I went. Well they aren't in any stores around here. Target can get fucked, I ordered the ones I wanted elsewhere for the same price. I don't see much of a reason to even bother checking in stores for anything these days.
If anyone still needs the core class figures, Gamestop is having a sale this week and has core Optimus, Starscream, and Megatron all in stock for $7.99 each. Soundwave isn't on sale but he is in stock for $10.99. Free shipping at $35. As others have said some Targets will get new figures here and there but most are going to be empty shelves until they reset the toy aisles in August.
I wish they'd put Origin Bumblebee and the set with Nemesis Primal up online.
Update: Wreck Gar shipped!
Whoa! I’ve been watching mine and halfway expecting that but it’s cool to hear that it’s actually happening. Mine hasn’t updated yet.
Seeing everyone exited about wreck-Gar shipping… I just realized I never preordered him. Time Togo hunting
i went to my local Target on south side of GA this morning. And all they had was literally 1 Dinobot. Everything else was empty.
And yet just approved another delay until Aug 12th for Galvatron
Approved Scorponok again….
