If anyone on the Western Slope of CO needs a Bludd the Target in Glenwood Springs had six on the peg when I stopped by there earlier today.

YAY!! Scalper Geek Out!!! Can't wait to find empty pegs at my local Target but find everything I wanted freshly listed locally on Ebay in my area for minimum double-price! So exciting!!!

Wow. If the second runs are limited I have a hard time seeing this spun as a positive.

I'm sure none of it will be Cobra Island or anything else worth while.

It could also mean that this is the last time they(Target) will offer their exclusives at store or onsite because the exclusivity deal is ending for some of their exclusives. Maybe the past exclusives are getting closer to general release.

Then honestly..Hasbro needs to communicate that. Because people are absolutely going to run with this is the last time they can get these super limited quantities.

Actually Hasbro hasn't said anything about how these will be handled.

Yeah this could mean the exclusives in question are coming to a close. Hasbro can then choose to offer these by other means. Not that Target will stop exclusives. These exclusives they are closing the book on.

That could be good.

Getting these exclusives in question might not.
But that’s okay. They offered the Earthrise Seekers through fan channel options. Maybe other exclusives from brands like Star Wars and GI Joe may get that treatment too.

Time will tell.

On one hand, Target has to hype these sorts of things for sales (although visual is bad here) but on the other hand, if they just made them more readily available they'd actually make more money because people could you know, actually buy them.

If they limit online orders to one per household and automatically cancel/block orders exceeding that, it could be a good thing. It would suck for trying to army build Vipers but if it gives people a chance to get Firefly, Beachhead, and Baroness for retail, I'm all for it.

Yeah, Hasbro will not say anything because that will undermine Target’s sales. If fans knew these CI exclusives will be available later, a lot of us will wait. Heck a lot of us are still waiting for certain figures and developed a hatred for Target exclusives in general. As of now they hold the cards and FOMO is a real thing so alot of people will be going to Target for these exclusives whether they like it or not.

If I can manage to get a Viper out of oncoming ordeal, I’ll consider it a major win.
