    Obviously, it's the same retailer. In that, there is definitely a relation. My point is based on beholding Target as a whole, including their faults, which outweigh the odd positive guest relations encounter.

    Overall, I'll grant that many companies are having problems, but when you say...

    ...you defend Target far more than you yourself know they deserve. You know their logistics issues pre-exist COVID, and are actually indefensible given they know the breadth of the problem, and still, over the course of several years, have chosen not to address it (forget about overhauling it). Speaking in terms of "everyone", "everywhere", or their "always" being variables sounds as if you're trying to say Target is no worse than others, and they have established they do not deserve that qualification.

    Here's where I should apologize, and I do. You didn't mean to be all-encompassing in your praise. I think when I read "they did more than fix it" in your original post, my recent negative experiences came to the forefront as I've dealt with so many reps who wanted to fix things, and overall just couldn't. If it's any consolation, that's where that came from.

    But yes, I agree. Everyone ought to call and let their feelings be known. If that ends up costing them enough in refunds and giftcards...who knows, but I've really lost faith.

    Guys, this is about products coming in, not to debate how evil or good Target is. Take it to the Rant thread.

    Well thanks! I finally grabbed Roddy!

    I've been waiting for a good coupon and this was the one, set up in stock alerts, and overnight the app told me he was available to ship. When I woke up, they had 1 available and voila! $68 shipped w/ taxes, not too bad at all I'd say.

    Looks like Road Rage is on sale. 2 left if the app is to be believed.

    2 left because it's 2 per account. But they are not really enforcing that limit, I've ordered more than 2. But you can only order 2 at a time.

    Target should know better than to make a repaint of a shoddy mold a redcard exclusive.

    It's also ill-advised, as it being a RedCard item means a 90-day window for returns, which is well beyond when RR became available. As such EVERYONE can return the original purchase and rebuy for less, or request an adjustment based on the drop.

    I mean, they will now lose even more money than postponing the discount past three months.

    FYI, transactions using a RedCard get an extra 30 days for returns, i.e. 120 days total. But you are right, basically anyone who ordered Road Rage at regular price should be able to either 1) get an adjustment or 2) re-buy and return.

    You're right. It's 30 days past the standard return policy, which is now 90 days unto itself.

    It's even more surprising now.

    Is it the fender peg issue alone at the core of this?

    It's probably that most people know how much the Tracks mold sucks, so Roadrage didn't sell well.

    IMHO, the mold has issues but gets a lot more hate than it deserves.

    I think lots of people are going to kick themselves for not grabbing one when it was easy to get.

    That said, I’m not grabbing RR, but that’s more because I don’t collect obscure/semi-obscure repaints.

    for Road Rage I'm doing the rebuy/return

    I used the 25% off coupon on the Mega Construx Hot Wheels Purple Passion which is also on sale right now ($5 off, now $44.99) which knocked off another ~$10, and then used 2 giftcards I had, so I paid less than $4 for it :D

    I bought a T-Wrecks with the $10 off $50 toy promo, and a second one now that it’s clearanced to $37. Check your targets if you’re still looking for one

    also got Road Rage adjustment through CS
