    I may order something just so I can feel like I was successful in getting something into the cart and ordered 1D9B48E2-23C7-433C-983A-E7A90BA6D5C2.jpeg

    I show one store within 50 miles of me that has limited stock of Cobra Trooper, 2 stores in that same distance that show a total of 8 Beachhead every other store shows out of stock. Between this mess and their case assortments, it's like Hasbro wants to set this line up to fail. Pathetic

    It said "Ship It" for Beachhead. But when I would click it, but they wouldn't add it to my cart. I kept clicking "Ship it" again and again and eventually it went through. It doesn't say "Ship it" anymore though.

    Target's website is weird. I was able to get the seekers from them just by randomly refreshing the page at 1 AM.

    Bucky O'hare failed for the opposite reasons. Too many villains and side characters and poor Bucky was left to one per case. Just hope I don't encounter the same attitude a couple of the associates I met earlier this week displayed.

    The 3 Cobra Commander to 1 Red Ninja thing just amazes me. And one of the 3 CC really should have been the hooded version. Kind of disappointed that my local Target that had told me these were street dated and to stop back on the 14th shows no figures in stock.

    Hopefully at some point there is an actual re-stock but I'm not going out hunting. The frustration just isn't worth it. I paid $110 the other day for 2 Cobra Troopers off ebay and it looks like they may end up being my only Cobra Island figures.

    If your local store has inventory you can probably do a store pickup order. I would if the nearest with stock weren’t 160 miles away

    Wont work unfortunately. Looks like they reserved one (EDIT: two) inventory for an online purchase. Which is complete BS.

    I'm thinking there's probably going to be a lot of people in the same situation.

    Over here in The Netherlands, Transformers was definitely the bigger one. My memory may be wrong but unlike in the US, gi joe came into stores late 80s over here, while transformers was already a thing mid 80s

    Managed to get Beach Head ordered for pick-up at my local Target... not sure if that'll happen or not. Expecting my order to be cancelled.

    My Baroness is still backordered.

    Target.com says sold out. Popfindr shows 1 trooper 1 beachhead at one. This is bullshit.

    So...haven’t done this in a bit...what is the opening store etiquette? First in line has first dibs or do I have to awkwardly walk/run faster than those behind me? I plan to chat up anyone who is there at the same time to see what we could pre-arrange, but just curious to hear from the collective.
