The other positive, in my experience, is you can actually track that stuff down at Target early by using the DPCI's and get an employee to help you get them... Saves the rat-race of routine trips to WM, especially if you're like me and prefer to avoid WM rather than hitting 3 or 4 of them a week... I usually get to one routinely but exclusives are always a prod to look more intensely and at other stores... Not that I want to.
Their inevitable **** distribution system doesn't help them either though... Of the 5 or 6 WM's I have in my area (1 hour away from where I am any given direction generally, with a couple half that distance or so), I think only 3 had the VTSC figures... Some had overloads of Epic Battles/Greatest Whatever figures while others had steady restocking of Saga figures... Some carry a full line of 1:18 military **** I collect (WM's the only retailer to carry it generally) while others had at most 3 pegs for figures that never restocked... Some stores have piles upon piles of the Collector tins, while others have 0, and others have maybe a dozen total of all the types.
WM is basically an inconsistant mess when it comes to distribution so I'm not a fan of them getting much of anything... Will these be Cantina-ish exclusives that were super easy to find? Or will these be TIE Bombers or Jabba Band 2-packs? You just don't seem to know with WM.
