I go to Target, two of them everyday. I was late for work this morning and skipped it and after work I found the sad remains of the Warlock wave a single Old Man Logan. How is the wave out before Guardians and not even up for pre-order yet it has hit the shelves at Target....

it not out before the GOTG it just your store didn't receive them. also many store put them put before they are supposed to be officially released.

 

He had GOTG wave in the back but said it was street dated yet he put out the entire Warlock wave.

I am just going to wait for another GOTG wave but I was super sad I missed the X wave.....I think its weird someone would care enough to buy all the figures for the BAF but not want Old Man Logan.


Why no pre-order yet? Do you think we will start seeing the wave or is this a freak thing that Target already got the wave. Lastly, how difficult is this wave going to be to track down?

UGH!!!!!!

 

I spent all my money last week on the GOTG wave, and all these reports of X-Men hitting is killing me. Don't get paid till Friday, and every fiber of my being NEEDS this X-Men wave. I want to go hunting tomorrow on my day off, but if I find them and I'm broke, that will torture me.

 

HATE MY LIFE!!! NEED THESE FIGURES!!!!!

 

Officially in my "losing my mind" phase.

Ohhh so they did buy one of each. I hate the fact that if I had just left a few minutes earlier I would have the entire wave in hand....

I've been wondering the same thing: What is up with this wave? It's rather unusual for there to be so many sightings in the wild before the pre-orders are even up. This seems like a little more than just stores ignoring street dates. I'm sure they are ignoring street dates, but, since when does Target get product before etailers and comic shops even have the pre-orders up on their sites? I can't say that I've ever experienced this before, or maybe I'm just not remembering it.

Regardless, it's making me rather anxious about the future of this wave and how easy/difficult it may be for me to find it.

actually no. there was the Giant-man wave from last year that was out in retails before it was even up in Etailers. There actually been a few but that's just the only recent one I can remember.

 

Also maybe it's just America etailers as my UK etailer has had the wave up for pre-order (and is now seeking payment, which I have paid) for about a month.

I honestly don't remember that, but I believe you. Regardless, it seems odd when something like this happens. I suppose I'm just especially excited for this wave, so I'm paying much closer attention to it.

It gets worse I went in last night upc, the figure I had bought trying to find out if they were in the back at the other target guy swore to me he knows they only have the Guardians. Go in today in the afternoon because I am not hunting and guess what they had them, they are all gone except Old Man Logan. I knew I knew I knew I shouldn't have trusted that stupid lazy piece of #$##.

Do those Target's not have the customer facing price checkers that also allow you to punch in DPCI numbers? Regardless, they're showing up in your area, so you will probably stumble onto them eventually. That's a positive!

They do but he swore to me that they only had Guardians back there. I never like to bother them so I took him at his word. Big mistake. I know retail sucks believe me but I spend my days bending over backwards and kissing customers asses, finding them books they didn't have a title or author for when they walked in. Collecting is my escape. I had everything the #$#$# needed he was just lazy and incompetent. If he told me he didn't know I would have went back first thing in the morning. I am afraid I won't be able to help myself from saying something next time I see him.


I should have known he was a complete incompetent moron when I said GOTG is street dated for March 1st and he said no actually its next week.....

Lol! That's a shame.

 

Most Target stores in my area won't pull stuff from the back if you ask. Sometimes newer employees will, but most won't at all. There's a guy in this area who is borderline militant about locating and scalping whatever he can find, which often results in him verbally accosting other customers or employees, so most of the store managers have implemented rules to stop their employees from pulling from the back. It really stinks.

It's kinda like mass confusion right now. I found the GOTG wave at TRU this weekend and decided to pick up a spare Angela & Darkhawk and they wouldn't sell it to me cuz the street date was listed as March 1. So they put a flimsy ass sticky note on it to hold it for me till then. Anyone wanna take bets how long that will last? As far as the X-Wave goes, that's actually a good sign. It looks like they might be pushing up the release date to both coincide with the movie and maybe even get that second wave arranged and pushed out sometime this year. Honestly, if the Warlock wave releases in March, how many of you could perceive not getting another wave before the end of the year. If they were really planning only 1 wave a year why would they slot this wave in the first quarter instead of a June/July release to make it a full year removed from the Juggernaut wave?

 

I'm still holding on to hope. The X-Men are a slam dunk & Hasbro would be crazy not to cash in on that fact more than once a year.

I can perceive not getting another Xmen wave this year, that's who lol. Despite me saying that for a while, my viewpoint is completely irrelevant as you can now hear it straight from the horses mouth (that horse being Dwight) during that Q&A posted on the front page.

 

I'll try to remember his exact quote but I believe it was like "the great thing about doing 1 xmen wave a year is that we have the opportunity to really make each wave as awesome as we can. We are already working on 2019 waves but I think the 2018 Xmen wave is the best work we've don't yet"

 

Again, the video can give anyone the exact quotes but for those who don't want to/haven't yet seen it, I believe i transcribed it pretty accurately off of memory.

 

It stinks but it is what it is i suppose. 😩

Even if he didn't pull it for me he could have at least given me the correct information. I would have been there by 10 and I am sure gotten my wave. I seriously can't stop thinking about how much I hate the dude. If he had done that at my store and someone made a stink he would have at the very very least gotten his first coaching. Personally, I would have fired him if your too lazy to type a number into your machine and would rather lie to the customer then go work at fucking wal mart.

After reading all of this, I stopped at my local Target which is a pain to get in right now with all the street construction going on and they had that wave out too. The only ones left were 3 Old Man Logans, 1 Shatterstar, and 1 Firefox. The main ones I wanted were gone. I debated about it and went ahead and grab them minus the extra Old Man Logans. They looked really great and came out well. Shatterstar looked awesome. I ran to Toys R Us hoping they had the rest and they just had 1 Nova from the New Guardians of the Galaxy wave. I passed on that. I only want Angela and I have her preordered already.

 

Heisenberg, I copied and pasted your name so thats why it looks like it does and I guess my words are in bold because I did it. I would not sweat it man. Your best bet may be just ordering a whole case from BigBadToyStore or Dorkside Toys. I don't trust store employees. Its like beating your head against the wall just dealing with them. He might have a buddy he was holding them for and just lied to you to get rid of you. I don't think there is much you can do. If you want it that badly enough then just pay the extra cost for shipping and just be patient. Some sites, shipping is free if you pay above a certain amount. You can also cancel your preorder if you find them in the store before they ship. Dorkside lets you do that. Just hold on to your reciet from the store and do not open them if you do that and then check your status with these sites to see if they shipped. If they didn't then cancel your preorder, if they shipped then return the figures you bought from the store.
