    Use this for Mpm-12
    Target Inventory Checker | PopFindr

    only 2 stores in Vancouver and Keizer show them as having then right now. I know most Target’s got them yesterday.

    So I got mpm-12 the other day. I just opened the box tonight and when I looked, the left arm was already broken off. Just my luck.... Looks like I'm returning it :/

    Sad to report both Tanasborurne and Sunset Esplanade are very disappointing with their TF stock

    Yeah.... it's been VERY bare lately. Everytime I check it's just a wasteland.

    The issues with the ports are what’s causing the bare shelves. This is pretty much the new normal.

    Hit up a few local Targets and Walmarts in Sherwood and Clackamas — nothing of note, shelves are wiped.

    If you collect Marvel Legends though, Nova is out at Walgreens in the area. Grabbed both of them at the Capital Hwy Walgreens.

    Anyone still looking for MPM12 hit me up. I have an extra I’m just looking to pass to anyone who wants it at retail price. I live in North Portland, near Saint Johns bridge.

    I’m in the same boat as you! Haven’t seen any. Whenever I do read an update here that there are some, I’m too late haha. If I come across any I’ll be sure to pm you!

    Slag hit a few weeks ago, maybe over a month ago? I think he came and went.

    With the shipping issues, a lot of these waves are showing up once and then just disappearing at retail. Haven’t seen Slag or Kingdom Wave 3 beyond the initial sightings when I grabbed them.

    Yeah, I have a feeling my online pre-order for Wreck-Gar’s going to get canceled, the way Target keeps pushing it back. Not the worst cancel I’ve had, though. I preordered a Sparkless Seeker online from Wal-Mart back in April, it was set for shipping out in mid-August. Had it canceled on me a couple weeks back, but the thing that really irks me was it was still being sold; now for about ~$107 instead of the $39.99 I had pre-ordered it as.

    Just a reminder...as Roufuss elucidated, these waves aren't gone. There's 30+ ships waiting to dock in Cali to unload. That is a metric ass ton of product and is a logistics apocalypse. We're talking that pre-covid normal is that the backlog of ships is maybe 3 or so.

    Suffice to say that this stuff will arrive but will do so quite late.

    Stay strong Oregonians.

    I've just about given up on retail at the moment. Most of my stuff is on order or pre-order on BBTS.
    If I do happen to run into something in the wild, I will cancel it at BBTS, but at least I have confidence I'll get the things eventually...
    I hate it because I usually enjoy the 'hunt', but with restocks being what they aren't, it's just not worth the time and gas...

    Yeah, it's been really rough this year. I've managed to find everything I was looking for between some intense hunting, some lucky online scores, and a ton of help from Exodus. When I have looked in person, I've had to go to more and further stores to find what I wanted.

    I’ve been extremely lucky that things have hit on my days off, so the minute something was sighted here (or someone on the boards gave me a heads up!) I was able to hit up 3 or 4 Targets to grab what I needed.

    I’ve never been able to come across any of the recent figures just randomly popping into a Target or Wal-Mart. But that’s true of all toy lines these days due to the shipping issues.
