That's pretty flimsy reasoning on their end. Shipping to retailers before the street date isn't a violation of the street date. In fact, it's essential in order for those retailers to meet the street date. The fact that Dorkside already had their product to sell should have told them that. 🙂

Yeah, they went on to say something about how some of those wholesalers will go on to break the street date but i dunno, just trying to relate their explanation in my own garbled way.  In any case I'm glad i got a pre-order in before they took down the listings.  

I checked the DPCI for Iron Man at Brickseek and it showed my local Target had him in stock, but when i went there no dice. Its OK though, they had FFH wave in stock (except mysterio) so i was able to cross another must-have figure off my list by getting Scorpion so it was worth going.

To me Hydroman looks a bit like Willem but his jaw & smirk reminds me of the late character actor Charles Napier.

Just went to visit one of the Target stores in my area, on the off chance that any 80th anniversary figures were available, hoping to complete my Avengers 70"s team.  None were out but was surprised to see that the entire SPFFH wave was represented between the endcap and aisle displays.  Man that was a first and since I don't collect Spider Man figures, of course they were all there.  But I did pickup the Scorpion, I have been fascinated with him from afar for a while.  I may keep him or not.....

80th Cap is a Walmart Exclusive.

the Peggy Carter set is an Amazon exclusive 

the iron spider/iron man set is rumored to be target exclusive.

benn mentioned the hulk set; I believe the rest could be sold at any store.

altho since the 10th anniv sets didn’t seem to sell all that well I do wonder if stores will order fewer of these sets

That worries me as well since Walmart had the 10th anniversary figures for so long.  The Iron Spider/Iron Man set is my top one that I am interested in, but I would like to see as many as I can in person before pulling the trigger.

I think its a Target exclusive and in my experience most of those get pretty well-stocked and aren't too rough to find if you are willing to pay full price... i think Gamorrean Guard was the only one i didn't see at least 4-5 of in the store... but he was extremely popular and many people wanted 2.

For those who haven't seen it yet, Marvel-related SDCC exclusives should be available on Hasbro Pulse on 8/30.  

Scroll down for approximate dates for all exclusives:

 

Headed to San Diego? What to Know.

Aw man, I was just in San Diego last month on business, and Optimus' PSA made me wish I was going back for the convention.  If any of you folks are headed out there, try to see some of the city as well!  It's friggin' gorgeous!

I tried to wait for the Gamorrean Guard to go on sale, but they disappeared quickly so I missed out.  I’m definitely picking up the Iron Spider/Iron Man set when I see it.

Awh. They're on sale for my bro's bday 💙 It's trying to tell me to buy one in his honor. I'll try to get the Collector 2-pack. He's always liked those characters from the comics.

I’m sure I’ve overlooked this, but what’s the street date for the 80th Iron Man/Thor figures? I checked back at a Target today and got some sass from the stockboy about street dates. He, however, didn’t know what said street date was, and refused to even check the DPCI unless there was a tag for them in the aisle. It was, uh, fun.

I wanna say i read a similar anecdote about someone doing this at a TRU in Canada and the clerk showed him the date but they forgot what it was, but thought it was sometime this week.  That's really annoying though because other people have bought Iron Man at Target so it feels like any street date has already been blown at this point
