Picked up three of each set yesterday at a couple different Targets. Glad to have these out of the way. Mine all rang up under the 0302 DPCI and were $14.99 each. Definitely better than paying the $25+ price for them.

So if they're ringing under 0302, is 0302 the right # now?

I don't think so - I think the correct number is still the 1172 - that's how they were in the system AND how they were able to find them in the back-room. It's the actual UPC number on the packaging that is still attached to 0302.

This could become problematic - if the real number is 1172 and all purchases come in under 0302, that means their system won't ever reduce the stock count on 1172, meanwhile 0302 keeps going into the negative.

Could make it hard for these to make returns to the pegs until someone figures it out and makes a correction.

Yes.

Went and looked at the ones I bought a week ago - nope, not taxed.

Just checked as well. No tax either. Weird.

Surprised to read on the front page that these are suddenly now ubiquitous around the country.

Not if you live around here!

None of our Targets have even started to THINK about doing a reset yet. Still showing zero counts for these sets at ALL local stores.

They were out at our local Target today, so it was nice to find them.  It looked like they had three of each on the pegs.  I have to admit though, it stung a bit to drop $50 and walk out with two packs to show for it :).  Nice to get something new this time around though.

Someone nabbed all the villain sets around there, both stores. I'm not exactly wanting to spend $25 on snags, anyway.

So, at the Targets that have completed their resets, did they put out new figures too? Or are the pegs still half-empty?

Is anyone still finding the 3-packs at the old DPCI clearance prices?

We got reports from Cali, Washington, DC, NJ, several in PA including my own sighting locally at a Target that's usually always a month behind on resets, several in Ohio, one near Buffalo, Florida, etc.  Some came in. :P

1/2 to 2/3 empty.  No new figures for any series.
