Can anyone recommend a some good playsets for Motu size figures?
>>8687729The Funko Savage World Batcave. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OfzAbAFwDg
>>8687787That is perfect, thank you. I've got a mix of old he-man toys, DC primal age and savage world.
>>8687787Alternately, Castle Grayskull.
>>8687787Getting this for Hordak
Does anyone know when target plans on restocking? I’m only missing Mer-man
Is the MOTUWWE figures being spotted at Target too? Any of the earlier waves?
>>8688060They're in the Target computers, and a single one was reported and photographed shown on pegs at a target, but I haven't heard anything besides that.
>get Panthor>check back of box>all i'm missing is BA He-Man and Skeletor>next day find BA He-Man and Skeletor>now Clamp Champ is on the back of the boxtoday was the day i realized i'm autistic
>>8687569Fuck target and their lazy incompetence to not get figures out until they reset, and even when said reset day comes theyre too lazy to actually get said figures out
>>8688417Mine won't do the reset yet because they "don't have the hours" apparently.
>>8688434I got so mad i called target and cursed them out for not reseting and refusing to get the figures out of the back before the reset happens. Fuck target
An IG friend found Roboto at Target and now I check mine endlessly
>>8688417>>8688434>>8688558Jesus, chill pills amigos. The figures will be stocked.
>>8688576I shouldnt have to want to wait another week, and even then i want this before some scalping piece of shit buys them all up. Buying action figures from target is like pulling teeth and im glad people are giving them hell for it.
>>8688580heman gets a dedicated peg sku, skeletor gets a dedicated peg sku, n the others get a specific peg to share. just keep the third one clear at all times
>>8688580Imagine being this mad over plastic
>>8688587At least you can get them elsewhere. Joe fans are stuck with a line no one could keep stocked and exclusives gone in minutes at open. A few cities got single figure restocks of the exclusive because they broke up a case and sent 1 to each store
>>8688576Fuck off asshole
>>8688582Imagine thinking the employees care enough to keep track of this when the figures get mixed up. It's all He-Man to them.
>>8688589As a Joe and MOTU fan I 100% agree with this post. Just being able to sit back and order the entire MOTU line from an online vender is golden. Gladly dropped like $200 to secure a bunch. Walmart also proved to be much easier than Target to deal with earlier waves, I snagged a Scareglow from Walmart and I can’t say the same for ANY of the Target exclusives for Joe. Broke down and paid scalper prices for Firefly... it’s my second favorite character ...I had no choice. So far the only MOTU figure I don’t own or have preordered is the frocked Panthor and I don’t believe anyone has that yet.
>>8688580Agreed that Target is by far the worst place for 99% of exclusives. Walmart will delay, but at least I’ll get it. Here’s my origins shelf so far bros. I love this line so much.
>>8688629I work at Target and I care. But most of the other employees are oblivious.
Oh, Boy! Walmart restocked wave 1 again!
>>8688911>He-Man's broken ankleOUCH!
>>8688911Love that skeletor and He-man head. Honestly the only reason I’m picking up the battle armor versions
Found a Land Guppy today. I know the World's Smallest figures won't fit in it (They don't even have leg articulation to sit) but they're going to look cool standing beside this and the Wind Raider.
>>8688987Wst can stand inside it. Sorta sucks no chomp gimmick though.
>>8689042What, no Chomp gimmick? If you got the Minis castle boxes, I bet they'd all look great together.
>>8689223Don't talk to me or my son ever again!
What do you guys do when you have both yellow Evil-Lyn and a cartoon version in your collection?
>>8689297I guess treat them as evil versions of white Teela and Green Teela?
>>8689223>>SKELETOR ARE YOU PLAYING WITH YOUR TOYS, AGAIN!?!?!>>NYEEH, EVIL-LYN DON'T INTERUPT M-MY PLANNING SESSON!
>>8689356She's a long- suffering wife.
>>8689223You can move the jaw up and down manually but the jaw always goes back down. The thing is $5 already, you think a simple chomping gimmick wouldn't be hard to add even with a diecast lower half. Maybe it's to keep it track compatible (if it is)? I'm not sure.
>>8689223>>8689042>>8688987Can you put the WSM figures back in the packaging/plastic after they’ve been opened?
>>8689506Oh, as long as the jaw works I'm fine with it not actually chomping while you roll it.
>>8689537Yes, the package is actually plastic with a sticker, and there's a hatch on the back.
What do people think of the Super7 vintage line?
>>8689964They're fine if you can't get the original toy and Origins doesn't have a good substitute. Not worth more than $20 though
>>8689995I'm gonna let my kids play with them.
I dont understand why people are saying battle armor skeletor can only hold the shield with his grasping hand, mine can hold it with the splayed fingers hand just fine
>>8688822very nice anonsome background prints over the white shelf backs/sides would look awesome
Am i the only one who prefers zodac as an evil bounty hunter like early promo material had him as, rather then a neutral character?
Posting Amazon product DP numbers:B08J6PPHQZ - RobotoB08J4FDHDJ - Mer-ManB08J4GGNKS - PanthorB08J4CGFML - She-Ra
>>8690239I mean he can be whatever you want on your shelf. And it'd at least give him a reason to look so goofy. He-Man probably pays him in nudes.
Where's the reset?Where's the reset? You said it'd be the 9th. Where's the reset anon? Three Targets now. Where's the reset?
>>8690565>I mean he can be whatever you want on your shelf.Exactly. You can even make him an evil bounty hunter without also having to make Stratos evil like in that promo!
>>8690239I love Stratos' write up.
>>8688987>>8689042Yeah, I was disappointed that it had no chomp gimmick. The mouth doesn't even want to stay open :(
>>8690239>Women are trophiesThe good ol' days. We will never get it back.I knew Stratos was a bad guy, I never trusted him.
>>8690239Zodac is so fucking cool. Definitely the "Boba Fett" of MOTU.Unrelated but, World's Smallest Skele is pretty fun and you should find one.
>>8690239I like to think he has no alliance and just works for whoever pays him more. Also helps explain why he is neutral
>>8690239"I fight for universal balance! If I die, tell my wife 'Hello.'"
I prefer Mer-Man heroic and Zodac villainous.
BA Skeletor and zodac are two of my favorite figures so far and I didn't think either looked any good in pictures
>>8692051Some photos I see make BA Skeletor's faces look okay, but for the most part they just seem really, really off-putting to me. Especially the smiling head.
>>8691022Not op but you str8 up lied dude, when's the reset
>>8692572It’s already happened. If you missed it, you missed it. They’ll be back though. Fucking autist.
>>8692051I felt the same way about a few of the figures. Trap-Jaw and Mer-Man both didn't look as good to me from promo pics.
>>8692576How is it autistic to just want to know what the fuck is going on
>>8690855I don't get this either the stores claimed they were resetting on the 10th but a lot of them don't have anything new out.
>>8692650What's autistic is seeking and following advice from someone on an anonymous image boardThe reset is tomorrow, anon. Go out to target and keep looking, don't worry at least one will have them :)
>>8692650>>8692776You people are all autists, just preorder from BBTS and shell out the extra $1 per figure.Does anyone have experience with Walmart preorders? The Castle Grayskull says it'd have free shipping, which would make it a solid $15 cheaper than on BBTS.
>>8687729Along these lines- does anyone know some good off brand vehicles or beasts that would fit motu origins? Been checkin out some of the Jurassic world dinos
>>8693270BUT MUH THRILL OF THE HUNT!!!
When's that reset happening???
>>8693270Walmart preorders are usually delayed and sometimes they cancel on you, which sucks. I think the Castle is going to be overproduced though so I wouldn't worry about it and go with them. I would order two if I had the space.
Any word on clamp champ / ram man showing up? I know clamp has the recall but they were supposed to come out same time as battle armor right ?
>>8693400I have a feeling they delayed both of them so they could launch together. Makes sense though, Skeletor/He-man are packed together.
Target still sucking dick here. Goddamn. I see sky sleds at most.
>>8693400Why was clamp champ recalled?
>>8693480Rumor is the skin tone was way lighter than intended. The first release looks polynesian.
>>8693480>>8693508Comparison shot between promo pic and in person photo
>>8693572anyone have a pic of what figma girls look like captured in that claw arm? is he bigger than them?
who has the best booba in the MOTuverse
>>8693858Also has a great poopa
>>8693854Tfw no topless teela figure in origins.The battleground one from Motuc is chef's kiss.
>>8692023Mer-Man just wants his oceans clean and left alone. I'd have people fuck off too if my fellow bretheren of the ocean were being murdered by those plastic things that hold soda cans together.
>>8693854>>8693858>>8693863YES. I'm fucking hard
>>8693863>>8693858>>8693854What line is this from?
>>8693508>>8693572Thats dumb, but hey niggers get offended by everything these days so dont want to risk someone complaining hat hes not enough of a brother because hes too light skinned
>>8694222In Africa where they have committed successful genocides, 'lighties' got the Machete too. It's unsurprising. I am refusing to buy Black action figures now. Say no to genuine racists.
>Target actually restocked their He-Mans again, and even had a Battle Armor figure left!>His eyes are misaligned.It's not like I wanted Battle Armor He-Man anyway, B-Baka!>>8693854>>8693858>>8693863Good to see Mattel was full of Boomer Coomers!
I found panthor tonight, fellas
>>8694270>In Africa where they have committed successful genocides, 'lighties' got the Machete tooAfrica and the middle easts populations need to be annihilated by a combined force of the rest of the world
>>8694287>Mattel shows their tue colorsI knew good paint apps were too good to last.>>8694299Call us when Walmart gets the flocked version.
>>8694222I don’t know, I’m fine with it. It will make it look closer to the vintage one
>>8694137Motu prototype/concept for Teela
>>8694299wheres his hat?
>>8694340He doesn’t come with one (the vintage one didn’t either)
>>8694299That’s cool but I’m gonna wait for the flocked version
>>8693508Kinda want a Polynesian MotU character now. Give him Champ's body except with bare feet (re-useable for Oo-Larr), medium brown skin and a unique tropical loincloth. If I recall, Mer-Man's sawfish sword is a Maori weapon so re-use that.
>>8687569When are we getting a faker for MOTU origins?
>>8694549Honest to God I'm shocked it didn't already hit. Watch it be a Target exclusive.
>>8694549Since he’s just a He-man repaint I could seem him being packed in with a vehicle, similar to Prince Adam. My guess would be a pack in with the Roton
>>8694299Heres what he looks like out of the package
>>8694578>>8694661Why didn't Man-At-Arms ever make a Faker Skeletor to counter Faker He-Man?
>>8694672Love that Skeletor head sculpt. Can you post a picture of it on the standard Skeletor?
>>8694737>Can you post a picture of it on the standard Skeletor?Sure, here
>>8694674Oh damn, now I want a white Skeletor wearing He-man's harness in the wrong color. Thanks, Anon.
>>8694745The head...... read again anon
>>8692776There's no targets in Canada, and walmart only has a million and one battle cats :(
>>8693283More like shipping costing as much as the figure itself lmao
>>8694750Feel free to buy any pegwarming He-Men and Skeletors to make your own!
>>8694750>>8694895What would you do? Use He-man's body, Skeletors Head? That would look stupid.
>>8694919>What would you do? Use He-man's body, Skeletors Head?He-Man's torso, upper arms, loincloth and thighs with Skeletor's forearms painted to match He-Man's skin tone, his lower legs repainted the same red as He-Man's boots, and head with hood repainted the same color.
Will MOTU origins survive at retail? Theyre making too many he mans and skeletors IMO, dedicating entire cases to them was a bad idea
>>8695123They need a cartoon and they need it fast
>>8695123What I think is worse than distribution is the fact they want to release even more sub-lines, like "Masterverse" which appeals to only a small portion of the MOTU community, normies will pass them by.
>>8694801Since when did they cost $4
>>8695123MOTU will be just fine, a quick Google search shows that the Netflix series drops in March, which will be the media push that Origins is looking for. As for the cases of Skeletor and He-Man, those are necessary because there's always going to be a kid who has just found out about MOTU and doesn't necessarily want to start with Stratos or Orko. I'd also like to point out that since there's a ton of parts sharing going between Origins and WWE Universe that Seth Rollins comes with Draego-Man's fire sword, so I wager that we'll hear something about Draego-Man at Power-Con.
is this a coomer franchise? everyone is half naked
>>8695443>I'd also like to point out that since there's a ton of parts sharing going between Origins and WWE Universe that Seth Rollins comes with Draego-Man's fire sword, so I wager that we'll hear something about Draego-Man at Power-Con.I really hope we do, I don't want to fork out the cash for the Classics version
>>8695516its a boomer coomer IP. you'll get some half-naked barbarian ladies and some fetish-adjacent shit like women in cages, but it'll only get you off if you saw it when you were 8 and it led to your first boner
>>8695699>but it'll only get you off if you saw it when you were 8 and it led to your first bonerFalse. I have jacked off to the OP image twice as an adult who discovered MOTU much later in life.
>>8695443>Draego-Man's fire swordI think that was the exact same sword as classics had.
>>8695123Some lines have DIED because you don't find the main characters anywhere.
>>8694302I mean the most recent batch of THE VIRUS was only slightly more deadly against the dark skinned population.Next one will be a success.
>>8695958It is. WWE MOTU uses Classics parts, or original parts. Upcoming Macho man will be the first use of Origins accessories.
Walmart clearance on MOTU megacontrux sets.
Other Masterverse listings, different from the last. Dated August. https://www.deepdiscount.com/search?q=masterverse&mod=AP&fbclid=IwAR2-Q-vEGuVXFCjAgVXr1Ie5L3ZXTEnUR5jxBkpZPC3TzYEtrcQzbyMUhkw Battle CatSkeletorEvil-LynHe-ManBeast Man"Oversized Skeletor"SpikorTeelaMan-At-Arms
>>8696356Any idea what Oversized Skeletor is supposed to be?
>>8696434>https://www.deepdiscount.com/search?q=masterverse&mod=AP&fbclid=IwAR2-Q-vEGuVXFCjAgVXr1Ie5L3ZXTEnUR5jxBkpZPC3TzYEtrcQzbyMUhkwProbably some kind of gimmick figure? “Beat up your own Skeletor” would be kind of cool, if you remember way back when WWF and WCW had those plush toys with SFX that little kids were supposed to wrestle with?
>>8696356Spikor is one of my favorites, hopefully we’ll see him in origins soon
>>8696487I'm looking forward to Modulok, Mantenna, Mosquitor, & Webstor.
>>8696463That would be amazing. There's actually a company that makes those already, they're not official though.
>>8696356>no OrkoNo interest. And since the entire first wave of Masterverse is Revelation, his absence further fuels the rumor that he dies in that series (and will be replaced by Gwildor going forward).
>>8696648Your interest in conditional on Orko being there? Interesting. As for what happens, we'll see, no real point in speculating on such a thing. I do like Orko too, but if this matches the darker tone they mentioned, I can see the old Orko not fitting (but then neither would other characters, so I'd imagine he'd likewise evolve a bit).
>>8696282Apparently store managers are responsible for clearance and not Corporate. I was just at a Wal-Mart in Lexington, KY after a previous similar pic and no MCX toys had Rollback stickers.
>>8696657Always scan them using the WM app. Found another one in a different store that was still in the regular aisle with the MSRP tag, but rung up for $12.40 when scanned with the app and instore price checker.
Mid week target run, got merman and zodac saturday and today they only had battle cat and sky sled so i got a sky sled. The motu are barren in n ms but not the ghost town of gi joe cobra island.
>>8696356What's masterverse? I've been out of the loop
>>8696945Isn't that the Marvel Legends like He-Man line?
>>8696945The mass retail replacement for the 7" MotU Classics/Club Grayskull line.
Just checked my Target and got Zodac and Mer-Man. They also had Panthor but I’m waiting for the flocked one. Unfortunately no Roboto or She-Ra though
I'm pretty cautious about the new netflix "adult" he-man something about it being a gritty continuation of the cheesy filmation show rubs me wrong. Might as well be a reboot at that point for better or worse. Netflix has thoroughly disappointed me with a bulk of their original content.Maybe the designs will look cool? I dunno. Motuc was pretty good for its time but I hated how most of the figures could barely do decent sitting poses. Origins is slightly better even if some people dislike the goofy retro proportions.
>>8696356So these will be based on the new cartoon, right?
>>8696839>The motu are barren in n ms but not the ghost town of gi joe cobra island.;_;So who has a good chance of getting Trapjaw in? My Wm never got past wave 1
>>8697527The first wave, yes. The rumor is that each subsequent wave will represent a different iteration/canon/timeline (hence, Masterverse).
>>8696282Damn dude that's a lucky as hell find
>>8695123A year from now when the skeletor and heman cases are phased out and it's just regular assorted waves in the stores there will be people asking "where can I get a regular skeletor/heman without paying ebay rape prices?"
>>8696945Supposedly it's a modern line of MOTU, a 6-7" line with sculpts and articulation up to the modern standards of Hasbro, McFarlane, etc.I think they have mentioned that accesories would be intended to be compatible with MOTU classics.
MOC collectors ruined the minis
>>8697998While that's fine and all, losing the little cases kind of kills the appeal for me. Those were really fun, and was looking forward to collect all the various locales. Hopefully it's just an extra, or an online retailer thing, and the regular retail ones persist.
>>8697998>>8698011Do you guys prefer getting random stuff? That's why I never bought them, I hate the chance of getting doubles.
>>8698021There are codes at the bottom of the boxes that tells you what's inside. There's no chance of getting a double if you know that. This is very publicized anywhere you see discussion about these, I'm surprised you didn't know.
>>8698030Ah okay. I had no idea, I never really looked into buying that stuff. Maybe I'll pick up a few now.
>>8698030>the chance of actually seeing a full case in the wild>having to work to find the figure you wantThis is why I hate blind boxes.
>>8697825The said they are going to have two of them constantly in production, as long as the line lasts.
>>8696434Probably origins skeletor in bigger size.
>>8698011>losing the little cases kind of kills the appeal for meSame, I bought them for the cases mostly and just focused on which character I may want the most of who was there since Slime Pit He-Man was always gone.
>>8698047Yes, but if they keep the whole rarity aspect, you'd be just as unlikely to find whatever the rare ones are now, and if anything, they'd be even easier for people to snatch it up now.
I haven't found any restocks on the regular origins figures at target besides that sea of Skeletor that constantly occupies space and the occasional Battlecat.
>>8696356Revelations still hasn't had a trailer or anything, right? I wonder if reveals for the Masterverse line won't happen until we get a trailer or something for the show. I wonder what's taking so long.
I just want to say HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA to the guy who tried hiding Mer-Man and Roboto behind some Gunpla boxes!
>>8697998Well, this fucking sucks. So I guess the Slime Pit mini case is never going to see the light of day, then (and still no Orko).
>>8698941Maybe they'll sell it separately with more paint deco (lol)
>>8698710I usually get worried if little hype is generated sooner. The only good thing about the netflix show is we got some high end voice actors/actresses/xctors/xctresses/zcrectis.
>>8698704Targets by me just put out figures seems to be deluxe, skeletor, heman , 4th wave pegSky sled, Battlecat, panthor 6 deep
>>8697998Is this new?
>open up Macho Man from last year finallyOh shit, these are fun. He's way better than the early John Cena/Triple H figures I messed with a year ago when the WM ring set came out. I may grab some different ones for fun now.
>>8699948Mr. T, Undertaker, Skull King Triple H, Faker Cena, Ultimate Warrior, Finn Balor, Seth Rollins (mostly for the armor and fire sword), Jake "The Snake" Roberts have been my favorites so far. Unfortunately Rey Mysterio's wings refuse to stay in place so that kills my interest in the figure.
>>8701089I just took his wings off. He looks way too slick not to be one of my faves.
>>8701089Yeah, I had the same problem with Rey
>>8701126I could do that, I'm just glad that they're not using these wings for Stratos.
Still no restocks at my Target. I'm hoping things will pick up soon.
>>8701291It's never getting better
>>8701089Some of those are still here so I'll pick them up as the week goes on.
>>8697936>>Sea Hawk>>Sea Awk>>C Awk>>C OckCOCK.
>>8701089I hate that I waited on these and now I can't find any, even Faker Cena who was rotting the pegs for a long while.
>>8698021They were my favorite way to waste $5. As long as the codes were different, i was happy.
>>8697532Im personally still waiting to find trap jaw and manefaces, ive got them on preorder but i like the childhood fun of THE HUNT. But to your question ive never seen wave 2, if its walmart only then get ready for retro gi joe part 2.
>>8697532Oh yeah i meant to ask- you in the n ms area? Im down the street from GRACELAND.
I guess somebody saw the shipping box, thought they were Origins and then opened them just to find disappointment. I didn't buy BA He-Man and Ram Man just because I'm not all out on this line like Origins but these ones are pretty neat.
>>8701866Will we get a Pro-Eternia Teela. too?
>>8695123Mattel is terrified of the line dying from what killed it the first time around. Which was no one could find the original 8 figures about 2 years in, which was the height of He-Man's popularity. The Toys that Made us even pointed out at one one point, toy retailers were clamoring for more He-Man figures and all Mattel had ready to send them was....a case filled with Buzz Off...and ONLY Buzz Off. Kids couldn't find He-Man, or Skeletor, or Mer-man, Beastman, etc. Mattel EVENTUALLY figured this out, and re-released the original wave, but it was too late. kids were moving on. So that is why when you go to wal-mart or target you find 14 Skeletors and NOTHING else. It's because of that. Thing is, I feel like the vast majority of people buying these he-man toys, if not ALL OF THEM, are adults. There's no cartoon (and most kids don't want to watch old cartoons) so, kids today don't know these characters. They need to tone down on the skeletors. If 3 years down the line you missed out on him, hey that's your fucking problem. He's fifteen fucking bucks. Who the fuck who is browsing this board can't afford that? And if you can't you probably shouldn't be browsing this board.
>>8701882They swapped distribution of waves for some reason, this is wave 4. Regular Teela was slated for wave 3.
>>8701894There's two different cartoons for MOTU coming out this year, one which is a continuation of the original series story and the other which is geared more towards kids (think Cyberverse).
>>8701894I understand keeping them in circulation periodically, but I don't understand the full cases of just them. Why not just include two per case or whatever on new wave assortments?
>>8701919No kidding, it's already been backfiring at WM and now Target joins the lot. A case of what, 8 goes out? If you do four waves the first year, make He-Man/Skeletor 4/4 in Wave 1, Wave 2/3/4 add a He-Man and Skeletor. Or, you know, the Deluxe option of just those two characters to get a nicely painted He-Man or Skeletor with lots of gear with their own peg and bigger card like the BA ver and then the regular waves can be everyone else.
>>8701866Where was this found?
>>8701899So we're not getting the slime pit box?
>>8701942A Walmart in Toronto>>8701947Probably not, I guess someone at Mattel saw how much the shells cost to make and figured cards would be cheaper. They probably delayed wave 3 to repackage them if this is the case.>>8701930In my experience your hypothetical solution is exactly what they're doing. Each wave past the second I've seen have either been an assorted box of 4 with one HM and Skelly each or dedicated boxes of 8 for individual figures.
Origins Wind Raider is up for pre-order on Big Bad Toy store for $33. No pictures are available though so we don’t know what it looks like. Release date is slated for June
>>8696945shutup and take my money from now on it looks like I will be signing entire paychecks over to mattel
>>8702000Between Origins, Minis and Masterverse I'll be living like dril
>>8701584yup gone now even cena
>>8701908That’s all well and good, but for right now, kids are looking at these toys and it means nothing to them
>order in-stock Panthor from Target>use Target card for 5% off and free shipping>keep getting delays in them shipping itFuck! It's just Walmart 2.0!
>>8702374I found Panthor semi frequently at my local Targets.
From Michigan. Most targets didn't seem to restock around here. Its been He-man, Skeletors, and battle cats. was able to grab all of wave 3 on Jan 1st but things have dried up since then. Grabbed a extra sky sled and panthor just incase the restocking turns out like walmart. was able to find a hotwheels landshark just now.
>>8702506Also from Michigan, Mostly the same here, the only thing I haven't found that I want is battle armor He-Man. I did notice that my nearest Wal-Mart rearranged their toy aisle, and they now have a tag for the Sky Sled. Gives me hope that they'll get the new waves soon.
Ordered a panthor online from target, had it shipped to store to save on shipping cost, tracking it on target app, arrives at store day early, and then suddenly not available for me until next weekI'm betting scalpers are fucking around and made off with mine and probably some other people's, and now target has to reorder
>>8703989Yes that is likely what happened. A lot of scalpers work at Target part time. It makes it easier for them to hunt.
I wonder if Target will sit on empty MOTU pegs for months like they have with GI Joe. They don't care about stocking.
>>8704013Only if Matty isn't getting product to LA from China which is direct shipped to Target distribution. One thing Matty hasn't been too suck at is getting product in general to stores. So while there is probably going to be a bit of a delay after whatever is shipping on boats now (Chinese New Year which means the factories won't be back online until end of Feb/start of March), things will get better. No Mattel line has looked too bad on the Target shelf all year, MotU is just new for them and it's new product versus last year with WM rolling in the same Wave 1 stock.GI Joe (and Hasbro in general as it has been tradition for years) sucked for distribution and quadruple so for exclusives. Target orders, Hasbro ships, things sell out, Hasbro lags on getting product back to retailers and retailers tend to focus major needs towards Cali and New England versus the rest of the country. My New England friends have been getting lucky with Joe exclusives for 2 weeks now. Still didn't see them at half the stores here and no one has gotten a restock in over a week. In a major non-coastal city. It's pretty much the Hasbro way and why I dropped many of their lines including trying to collect the BAF ML lines.
