    Wait, Gibsonia had SS86 Hot Rod? I thought I saw some Deluxe SS WWII Hot Rods there on Friday, you're not talking about those?

    Last night; Royersford Target pretty devoid of anything. The only thing that looked remotely interesting was a Cyberverse Arcee.

    Well, fortunately I was able to order for shipping this morning and customer service kindly waived the shipping fee after I explained the ordeal.

    That Target did the same thing with me last Summer with Skywarp and Thundercracker, putting them on their own end cap less than an hour after I left. This time I saw it on Target's Website and I called there and had them tuck one on the side in Guest services for pick up.

    And due to all the gift card credits and rain checks that tallied up from the preorder push backs and cancellations with Thrust, Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker the past 2 months on their site I only ended up paying $6 for Thrust at Phila-Bridgeburg and just $15 for Blackarachnia at my local Target.

    I still don't have Sunstreaker but if they ever do get him online or at retail I have another Reference number to get $5 off of him as well. So every time they sent me and email telling me a preorder was delayed or "I'm sorry, your order was cancelled", I reached out to them via chat and complained, demanded compensation (It wasn't like my end of the bargain wasn't fulfilled). So $40 in credits was the tradeoff for screwing up orders.

    From the ten minutes between leaving the house and getting to the East Liberty Target, the site listing for Thrust went from "in stock" to "limited availability". The shelves were bare and an employee confirmed that they were all out.

    I see that some people were able to order online. How? All day the listing said it wasn't available for delivery or in-store pickup.

    It was available for order for a short time at like 4 am. That's what happened with the Seeker two-pack as well, and if that's anything to go by, Thrust may pop up again early tomorrow or within the next couple days.

    Found a GigaWatt on my porch today. Gotta love Target. I guess they were out of white mailer envelopes?

    Mech target has a real dickhead working electronics. They have basically all of kingdom but won’t even attempt to go back to get them, despite all of them being picked through already as the stock shows. Asshole.

    Do not bother going to either over the Easton locations they say they have things for Transformers and GI Joe inventory wise but they have nothing.

    Can you read your posts before posting them? They’re very confusing.
    “Vapors” = vipers?
    No idea what you mean with “Eastern locations” in the second one.

    Target-
    Absolutely nothing.

    Quick rant: The guy who works in toys at my Target is a total dickhead. Haven't asked for his help since the first wave of Cobra Island figures, and he was a dick then too.

    All I asked today was "When is the aisle reset?" His response "Aisle Reset?"

    After explaining to him what that means, he just says "Everyday sir. We get trucks, we unload them daily... sir!" (Sharp tone on "sir!")

    I wish I could take his word for it, but the aisles have looked almost empty for a month now. So either, they don't get trucks, ppl buy stuff that quickly, or maybe he just sucks at his job.

    You know, I get it, these jobs suck, but I asked politely and did not ask for anything particular. IDK why ppl have to be such shit and this is why I do all I can to avoid asking for assistance at any store.

    Which the last time I actually did get any help from anyone was 2016, when someone was nice enough to hold something for me. So it isn't like they do much when I do ask for assistance.

    Rant over, just needed to vent.

    After reading a lot of posts about Target I’m grateful my local one is decent. I had asked about the Funko Pop Starscream right after Christmas as it was showing stock. The guy at electronics said they sold out fast. Later he saw me walking in another part of the store and actually took the time to stop me and say that he forgot to mention they should be getting the exclusive Bumblebee Pop in the next week or so.
