    I wouldn't worry too much just yet. I had the same thing happen with my Sora amiibo preorders not too long ago and they shipped out just fine.

    Seems to me Walmart/Target are executing questionable business practices by allowing more online preorders than they have given stock for? Origins Jazz I purchased from in-store Target, while my preorder of him was just hanging. Once I purchased in store, I obviously cancelled my preorder. Gonna swing by my Targets(3 of them in LA are short distance drive for me) and see if anything on the shelves or not.

    Looks like the same thing as last time, goes to backorder around time of release then prepares to ship. Hopefully everyone gets theirs soon.

    Target preorders are notorious for this. It’s like 70/30 after a backorder if I get my item or if it gets cancelled.

    This is why I pre-ordered the Legacy 4 pack on Hasbro Pulse despite the $20 coupon on Target. I don't trust Target with pre-orders.

    My thought process is that, if my order gets cancelled, I’ll go in store and ask them to sell me the pack at the same price with the receipts.

    At one point, the Target website said Blaster's street date was 3/31, but now the date is gone and it never came back into stock online. Of course the stores were all closed today (3/31) for Easter Sunday, but I'm hoping to score one at a Target tomorrow morning after missing the preorder. Hoping for the best.

    No luck at two Targets this morning, and I keep refreshing the website too, to no avail.
