My store has been terrible as far as Star Wars stuff goes. But they are always fully stocked on Marvel, NECA, etc.So what”s the state of your Targets? I got excited after TFF when I started seeing some new stuff out and those SW displays in the Disney/Clothing section. But it’s been a few weeks with nothing at all. Not even the Cave of Evil set.
They would be from cases of that wave showing up again. I could tell by the Stormtroopers that showed up that week.Where did the Jyn and Snoke figures come from? I know many stores had remnants, but it feels like more of them showed up right after TFF - is this the case of a collector scamming the store and returning old figures? I was under the impression they have different DPCI #s - anyone on the forums work at Target? I'd love a solution, so that they could restock and the TVC line could have a chance at moving cases of new figures!
By buying old VC at a lower cost, holding on to them, buying new VC and returning the old ones with the new receipt.How could a collector scam a store by returning old figures?
I've seen quite a few restocks of the newer waves but they must go quick. Just have to get lucky with the timing.
That shouldn't work with the newer waves (TFF and on) as the VC & BS have new/different DPCIs.By buying old VC at a lower cost, holding on to them, buying new VC and returning the old ones with the new receipt.
That is why there was an major influx of 6" Jyn and Cassian at Target last year. 5 Below was selling them for $5. People bought them up, then bought all the new waves at Target and returned the $5 Jyn to Target with the receipt for the new figures. Since Target keeps the DCPI it's easy to scam them.
Probably because the extent of their understanding of the situation is "Star Wars figure are selling, get more Star Wars figures". Followed by, "Hmm, I thought people wanted Star Wars figures? Star Wars figures aren't selling any more. Stop stocking Star Wars figures".My local Target had 9 mint Cave of Evil packs and 2 slightly damaged ones...they are stocking up on stuff that not many ppl want...
It's weird, the price checkers and the registers don't always have the same price. I found a lone first order snowtrooper officer and scanned it at a price checker and it said something like, $17.99, but then when I went to go pay it rang up at $12.99, which was fine by me. I've noticed that before too, like when Bespin Han was ringing up at $2.98, the price checker would say item not found, but then the register would say $2.98.This morning I decided to pick up another Cave of Evil pack, since the one I bought yesterday was a lemon (see that topic ). Well, a word of warning for Target-shopping, or anyplace I suppose. Someone didn't endeavor to place new marked-down stickers on some of the clearance merch. These 3 packs ring up at $12, but the stickers are still the $20 price. The cashier's register was frozen/acting up and didn't register the scanned barcode right away, so she was looking at the price tag and manually entering in the $20 price. I had to let her know that it shouldn't be $20 since I had scanned it at a price checker and it was $12.
Your probably right, but never underestimate the lengths some collector slime dirt-bags will go to. I've seen $5 Hot Wheels sets that someone took the time to carefully open and glue back so that they can swap out the cars they wanted and return it to the store. All that trouble for $5.Seems pretty unlikely. A lot of work and risk for very little return.
The figures from the Hoth Soldier wave I saw were from brand new cases.
That looks just as dismal as the nearest Target to me. Nothing new in ages. They did still have a few Jyn and Snokes though.
