Is this going out on the Target shelves this week?

I've been to two different Targets that have the new aisle set-up and I did not see a spot for this at either of them... that could just be because they don't have them yet though I guess.

I think they're missing another boat here with this turd.  We're looking at Fall now - or was that always the timeframe?

Our local Target has done their reset as well, and there was no sign of a spot for the MTT there either.  I'm really curious to see how this thing does.  The price is high, I think almost everyone (outside of SW fans) has forgotten about the 3D release at this point, and I just don't see many kids wanting this for Christmas.  It will be interesting to see how it does.

Hmmm... I wonder if it's going to go on a promo endcap or something?

Sold out at HTS. I see that a good thing.

Absolutely a good thing, however, how retail orders and reorders is probably much more telling on how it did.  HTS + Free Shipping has to be the collector market for the most part...  and they maybe didn't go hog wild getting it in.

I'll be curious when it actually hits normal retail shelves, to see how it goes...  And what Hasbro says next year I guess.

BBTS has 23 turds left.  Wonder how many they ordered?  ...

As I was reading JTA's latest Walmart story, I noticed that their Fall planogram has a spot for one MTT. That shoots down the "this will only be online" theories.

I can see TRU having it as they love to carry bigger stuff like this...  still not sure about Target's plans though.  Must either have another reset planned for later in the year or they must be putting it on an endcap possibly.

I was thinking Target almost always did a post-Sept. or Oct. reset didn't they?  Maybe that's it.  The holiday reset?

I don't know what's up but I'll be surprised if this thing's considered a success ultimately.  It was a questionable choice back in January.

Although there are always "revisions" and endcaps, etc., I know our local Target is calling their recent toy reset the "Christmas Toy Reset".  I'm not sure how much things will change again, but there are always smaller revisions to the aisles.  Plus, the endcaps change out periodically.

Sandtroopers reported that it has been found at a Target.

Their report is incorrect. That is a shelf at Walmart.  ;)
