    Playing devil's advocate here, as I've worked at Target before, the workers are there to perform specific tasks that are frustrating enough in a crowded storefront. I'm sure being hounded day in and day out about "do you have ______ item in stock" wares on them. Please keep this in mind.

    Whenever I go in to Target and have them grab something from the back, I have a fairly easy time. Being genuinely appreciative of their help goes a long way. Acknowledging to yourself that their job is tedious and that it started well before you got there and will continue long after you get your prize and leave is a good place to start. All it takes it treating other human beings like human beings. I'm depressed at how challenging that is for certain people these days.

    Just buy them online and ship them to your store.

    Respectfully, these statements didn't apply to my situation.

    ...thanks for the heads-up!..

    ...when i awoke to this morning to find the rainmakers already sold-out both online and at nearly all the locations which listed them in-stock last night, i dashed across town to one of the two remaining locations and found a lone beaten-up box on the shelf; bought on sight...

    ...good thing i open my all toys without getting too hung-up over the packaging condition - what an ordeal!..

    Ugh, are you freaking kidding me? I ordered the Rainmakers like 10 minutes after they came in stock last night and now Target says they're "Backordered". Greeeeeattt.....

    Same. I suspect they weren't ready to ship their stock yet, but perhaps they will be tomorrow. My delivery date is yet unchanged. We'll likely know more tomorrow.

    I ordered mine this morning and I received a shipping notification for them tonight. Weird.

    My Micromasters have shipped but the Rainmakers are now in "backordered" status.

    *big shrug*

    Micromasters are preparing. Rainmakers are backordered as well. Still says estimated July 31 Wed delivery date though. So with free 2 day shipping, tomorrow ship does seem more likely. As long as I get and don't have to continuously drive to Target looking I am ok with it.

    Got e-mail last night after i went to bed from Target. Now delivery expected Aug 12 for Rainmakers.

    Well, they sold out by 10am est. Probably only had 100 on the site. And sold out before they could update. Like someone mentioned, probably was not properly prepared for them to go live on the website.

    My Micromasters 10 pack got canceled, but Slipstream shipped.

    Sigh.

    I just got off live chat with a rep and they told me that the nearest warehouse to me didn't have any in stock and that it would have been shipped from a store, but the store didn't have any "acceptable stock" to send.

    So, they had me place another order for it, assuring me that the nearest warehouse now has it in stock and knocked 10% off the bill, which was nice.

    However, I'm betting this order gets nuked, as well.

    Double sigh.

    That really blows. I just got shipping confirmation on my micromaster set. I wouldnt be surprised if my rainmaker set goes from backordered to cancelled.

    I fucking ordered both of mine within minutes of them going up and now my rainmakers are "Backordered." Fuck you target you motherfucking fucking fucks. Also, for those wondering why I'm angry, Target has a history of fucking up with their exclusives. Just look up Target and Funko Pops. <.<
