    But are they locked in the system until the end of the month, like Origins Wheeljack is?

    Im actually happy that my Kingdom Blaster started yellowing. This deco is much better and I won’t feel guilty replacing him anymore.

    Then it shouldn't be on the shelf.
    If it's on the shelf, it's for sale.

    Unfortunately for the impatient ones of us, that’s not how it works. Target gets real pissy sometimes when a product on shelves isn’t street dated.

    I’ve been asked multiple times to put back a Lego set because it wasn’t street dated. It also happened with the muppets Minifigure series.

    Again, it shouldn't be on the shelf.
    Street date means it goes on the shelf on that date.
    If it goes out before, that's the store's fuck up. Why make it the customer's problem?

    Not sure why, but they will make it the customers problem. Street date is when it’s allowed to be sold, whether or not it’s actually on the shelf or not doesn’t matter.

    Because they can't sell you something that they are unable to sell, and unfortunately you not wanting to wait another week to buy it isn't a good enough argument to persuade them to take the risk and bend the rules.

    Entirely depends on the Target. Some have stricter managers who will go through hell and back to make sure you never get it and others don’t give a shit and would even offer you a discount for it.

    I remember back in 2020 when Overload was released before his streetdate you either got a manager who made you suck it up and put him back or one who let you input your own price into the system when checking out.
    Members of the TF subreddit managed to snag him for like 5 bucks.

    I had just cancelled my Target preorder to save on shipping too.

    Usually the manager oversaw the price input so no “unfair” price was put. If $5 was seen as fair I see no crime committed.
