They told me she was buried under 3 pallets of toys that were all set to be put out this weekend and that I could check back next week. It's fine, my online order changed from "pre-order" to estimated arrival on the 9th. 

I just feel like there have been horror stories with Target's online dependability but maybe she'll actually ship without an issue. 

Popfindr isn't working for me today for some reason so I can't monitor her inventory lol.

I've been posting repeatedly about it across many threads, but as e-rock noted the pre-orders I've seen that never get fulfilled all lack release dates.  Everything I've pre-ordered that got a release date entered prior to the actual dates they received the items all got fulfilled.

But they're so bad now I wouldn't assume that to be universally true.  Assume the worst.  One thing that's on your side for getting them next week is the toy sale starts Sunday, so waiting will make her cheaper if you can find a total of $50 or $100 of toys to buy.

Just got shipping notice from Target that they printed a shipping label for my Scarlet Witch.  Was hoping this would happen next week during Target's toy sale, but ah well, I'll return this one if I land one on sale.

Just got notice that this PO is shipping as well. Pretty much every Target exclusive I've had between ML, Black Series, TFs, Indy, MotU, have shipped. I've been getting notices all week. Too bad no movement on Tracksuits.

Just got my shipping notice! I'm really excited about Miss Maximoff! It's funny because Target has charged my account and put it back probably 30 times since June. And now that she's actually shipping they haven't charged me lol. Oh Target.

Got my Wandas! And I already altered her:

Chopped off the back edges of the tiara because they shouldn't be there, washed it black and repositioned the sides so the tails follow her cheekbones - like Hasbro should have done. Her hair is sculpted in a way that really gets in the way of doing this, but it is possible. I also painted in the printing gaps on her hair so it wasn't just randomly lighter around the edges, which helped a lot.

The printing on her hair is an interesting choice that kinda works. It just doesn't feel like it goes in the right direction(s). Also, one of these has the face printed just sliiiiightly higher which really helps the likeness.

I knew the arms were new but didn't realize her hands were also new without the gloves - the left one lost the side to side hinge and now has the up/down hinge as well.

Happy to retire my custom one but also glad I haven't been Wanda-less for a year and a half on my shelf! I quite like my solutions, just wish the glue had held better.

Mine shipped, so waiting for it to come. Hoping to have it by Monday. Sad that this is coming to me before my Tracksuit Mafia order

Mine should be here tomorrow as well! She looks nice. I really like the Darkhold accessory, though I do wish Wanda came with a more demonic head. Maybe we'll see one some day on a Demon Wanda/Dead Strange 2 pack or something. Still a shame this never got a 2nd wave, but I'm thankful for this little one-off regardless.

Got mine today, a day ahead of schedule! She's nice; certainly a little more accurate. I love the black fingers and how they're splayed out. Still would've loved an alternate head, but oh well. For some reason I thought the Darkhold could be opened/closed, but maybe I was getting it confused with something else. Does anyone have any ideas for a stand to use with it so it can "float" next to Wanda?

Received my PO today. Two copies, both had busted boxes. Gonna open both anyway. The Darkhold looks like an old piece of cardboard. If I didn’t know any better, I’d have thrown it away. The figure itself is nice, but after seeing the mod where the parts of the mask are extended from the cheekbones, I can only see how wrong the factory figure looks. Happy enough with her though.

My box from Target.com was busted too. I open everything so I didn't care but probably frustrating for MIB collectors. I gave her a slight repaint and added a wired fabric skirt from Cosmic Capes.

I was noticing it on mine, and seeing it again in your photo, they made Wanda too thin. Those are some THIN limbs.

To be fair, she is an Olsen. The MCU Monica figure is approriately thicc.

This is the best Wanda figure to date. Love this. Right now I have her sitting on something in her sitting position with the book. Have to do that or a flight stand given the hard plastic clothing. But I am happy with it!

I completely agree e-rock! Wanda is my favorite Marvel character so naturally I want the best version of her we can get. This figure is by far as close to perfect as we've gotten yet. I can't stop looking at her and messing with it. I might even buy a second one to fiddle with because I don't like to mess with them once they're on the shelf. I hope the team has learned that anytime Wanda shows up she should get a figure lol. 

I think my dream line up of Wanda figures would be this one, a Best of MCU re-do of her Infinity War figure (the body is fine but the face and hair could be more accurate) pack in an alternate brunette Civil War head, her AoU look, and at least one representation of her Sitcom hijinks (preferably her black and white 50s look). If they wanna get real crazy I'd even take a redo of her WandaVision figure with the lighter crimpy/curly hair and alternate hooded head with cloak. 

I'm just saying if Iron Man can get a figure every time he changes a panel on his suit then why can't she? Lol.
