The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases
« on: May 25, 2015, 10:17 AM »
Well, I had an adventure yesterday. Did my first extended toy run in ages. Sadly, all I came up with from the 3.75 line is one Cmdr Doom at Target. But, here's what really bothered me:

Hit my first TRU, nada. Asked them to check the stockroom which they did with no fuss. Still nada. The manager asked if he could check other stores for me. "Heck, yeah!" I said. Porter Ranch TRU, a very nice store, was supposed to have 16 on hand. Knew it wasn't R5's because I had been there a few days before. They were empty. I raced over there. Nothing. Not even shelf space for them. Brought a picture of the UPC I snapped at the previous TRU, asked them to look at the counter. "Yep, computer says we have 16." They called a guy to look. He came out. Here's what the deal is with this store:

Last case of black series 3.75 they got was December of 2014. The 16 in the system were stolen and never purged for the system. Because of the high incident of theft with the line, they decided they wouldn't carry it.

I know that this is just one item in a store of thousands, but how this can get handled in such a half-assed way with management continuing to retain positions in the company is just sad.

Thanks to you, I found Luke Stormtrooper and the Emperor at Target as well yesterday.

I also found Han Taun Taun at Target!

Picked up Dutch, Chewie and an INC from TRU. These are definitely the last to go.

Lol! I was thinking the same thing. Pretty dang frustrating. Was thinking of giving them a call, but I'm sure no one would have any clue as to what I was talking about.

Best I can tell Target is getting ONE new figure each. Today I picked up Dutch, Rex, and Wolffe all at different Targets and that one figure was all they each had.

Just like HTS. Putting one new figure up per day, or every other day since nothing new went up today.

Wow! I don't even have all of the first wave yet. Don't know if I'll ever be able to pick all these up.  :'(

That Wompa looks a lot like the Ultra series one from a few years ago just bigger.

My thoughts precisely.

Looks like they pulled the three that were up, Vader, Chewie and Dutch, to correct the price. Now Rex is up. Looks like they're putting one new figure up per day.  :P

Anyone else still collecting Doctor who? I've picked up some of the 3 3/4 figures. Been happy to be finding them in Walgreens, though it seems like the line is dying down a little.

I second the kudos on the collection Rob. I'm a big fan of these figures as well, although I've only picked up the Alien figures. Been eyeing the BTILC figs, but haven't pulled the trigger. Did pre-order the rival line Flash Gordon figures, though.

Did anyone get pictures of the Imperial Navy guy at celebration and confirm whether or not they changed the shoulder logo?

It is a huge window, but think about it, the product was originally scheduled to be out already since episode 7's initial release date was this month. It's all sitting around somewhere ready to go.

Right now, mine are stored in acid free archival bags until I can find or build a better cabinet display.

Ordered and received my Bossk and Han Stormtrooper from EE. Wish all the stormtroopers had that little neck piece that's on the Han. Nice little detail.

I don't see a Rancor Keeper in there. Definite pass.  ;)
