I didnt even know about a "Target con" going on. I just happened to check yet again for 10" Wicket. On the Funko shelves they had two. I was out of my mind happy. Grabbed him and went to electronics to check out just to find the double stacked cart there. Added the last Hedwig, last Toothless and Jack and Rose. It was a historic find as our Target is awful to find any good Funko!

If we got everything, we wouldn't want anything.
Sometime we just have to take the L now and in the long run... it will be ours in due time.

Wow. Point me to your target. 15 minutes and third in line? That is great

Thankfully as it calmed down, they went back to look again and found it. Ended up with Jordan, Vader and Capt Marvel! happy morning! patience and kindness were key! (one gentleman would not give up trying to get multiple of vader even though there was a line..I'm glad the employee stuck up for himself and others and kept it to one per person).

Late, but nice. Congrats

Trust me that's usually not the case. I think target giving an exact online release time and the fact it was freezing last Friday played a big factor in my luck. Honestly, I think target having lots of pops that release on a specific day helped them be more organized ironically enough. It seems like when it's just a pop being released here and there, I usually get the "we can't find the box" or "haven't had a chance to put it out." I actually hope there's more target-cons with lots of pops dropping all at once in the future.

Was able to snag the ones I wanted! I was 4th in line at a nearby Target but I didn't get up crazy early. It was a bit of a mess because the employees didn't realize there was a drop that day so they were pulling boxes as we were all waiting!! Crazy part was they pulled a chase version of Captain Marvel so the #1 guy snagged that. Then they started opening ECCC Michael Bolton & Samir!! The #2 guy asked if we could buy them, they were scanned and an alert came up saying they couldn't be sold until 3/15 but it was pretty exciting!

Hope everyone was able to snag what they wanted!!

We were able to get the GID Darth which was the most important for my hubs. Also scored the flocked Mufasa which is epic. I really wanted Michael Jordan but I'll live without him.

It took a little bit of work, but I did get the 10" Toothless. I was a little late online so he disappeared from my cart. After dinner, the local store only had the DC Bombshells pack. I don't even know where they could have had the rest of the product since there weren't any open spaces.

On Saturday, my sister missed the exit for the first Target on our route for the day. I hadn't planned on going to the next one on our route since it's really big, but they did have one Toothless left along with a few other exclusives. So yay! I was tempted to get the Wayne's World pack, but I resisted.

Had I used the app at first instead of the website that never changed from coming soon I would have gotten everything. Thanks to a friend of mine I was able to get MJ and Vader. I got Mufasa for a friend and the baby nippet for me via the app. I would go to line up at target but last target con the line was wrapped around the building ...

Got there at 8:05 and walked back to the electronics area where 4 guys were hanging out watching the employees open the shipping boxes. Every item was called out and we raised our hands if we wanted it. I was out the door in less than 10 minutes with what I wanted. Didn’t expect it to be that calm and peaceful!

I love hearing this. Efficient and orderly and don't have to wait hours!

I am with you. I knew about target con, but wasn't thinking I would get anything when I showed up on my way to work at about 9:30 local time. I was pleasantly surprised to see the ones I want were still available. I was pleasantly surprised because Target is awful to find any good Funko.
