And my Batcave was canceled this morning. There wasn’t a missed delay approval email. They just outright canceled the order.

Me too. I’ve managed to approve the other half-dozen delays.

Sucks that these are Target exclusives. The Targets around me are always either empty or have peg warmers in the extreme (30X Joker).

Lately I've been using the Target customer service chat to try and get answers on the many cancellations. For example, I had a POP I pre-ordered for my wife, cancelled with the usual lie "you didn't respond in time." (Target never sent the first notice.) I demanded that my order be reinstated, and they did so.

Tried the same on the Batcave today. Poor dude gave me nothing but scripted answers, tried to tell me it was sold out. "It can't be sold out if it never hit shelves or shipped," I said. Ultimately, he could do nothing but regurgitate his script, so I told him these frustrating experiences were almost daily, he should pass that on, and I had to leave for work.

I guess to make up for that he sent a $5 credit. Uh... thanks?

I found the Crown Prince of Crime yesterday at my local Target along with a solitary Batman.

I have the Mattel 3-pack (Batman, Robin, and Batgirl) but the more I look at these McFarlane versions the more I think I'll be trading up. Back in the day I missed the Mattel Joker but this one really nails the look for me. Plus, that new Riddler that was teased looks great!

Just looking at this figure you'd swear you can hear Romero's laugh...

Mine got canceled too.

Super annoying. Mostly because twice a week for the past two months they've made me go in and approve delays.

I'm over it.

Yeah, these are stylized to a point, but they're nice sculpts...hope to be able to find them someday.

Guessing everyone’s was cancelled. I believe it’s already showing up in Canada, so likely not an issue of it being in shipping container hell.

Anyone post on Todd's feed to see if McFarlane Toys has any info?

Oddly enough, if I want to pay the shipping I can order the Batcave RIGHT NOW from multiple online stores in Australia. Shipping is about $20.00 to the states.

So, how is it that independent retailers in Australia have the product but you can't buy it in the US?!! Oh, that's right... Target...

Haha I've noticed that on ebay too. Almost pulled the trigger a couple times.

I know production & supply chain issues are huge RN, but there's no way they should've solicited this thing back in JULY - because they (either or both Todd / Target) had to have known it wasn't going to arrive on time back then. And they sold this as part of a fan promotion! Shame on both of them.
