Why does Target show AOE Wave 2 as "in stores"?

    Target's website currently shows the wave 2 deluxe (Drift, Slash and Strafe) and voyagers (Hound and Galvatron) as being available in stores. It's important to note that they are not available online. Is the in store availability a mistake? Or do these figures all share the same DCPI that shows them in stores since the wave 1 ones are out? I then searched for which Targets near me had the wave 2 figures and either it's wrong or they're not putting them out yet. Has anybody else noticed this? Any help would be great!

    Could be the case of sharing the same DPCI.

    This happens a lot with Target when the DPCI is shared throughout a wave/series. It's the same way with the Marvel Legends line.

    Exactly. They're not tracking those individual figures, but the number they are all under.

    Yup, saw Hound as in stock at a local store, called and it was Wave 1.

    They have the same thing with wave 1, but when I show up, there's just BH shelfwarmers.

    Ok. Thanks for the clarification guys! I wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy before prematurely hunting for wave 2.
