Re: Target con - did you get what you wanted?

Postby LakerSpartan117 » Tue Mar 05, 2019 6:31 pm

So my luck was terrible this time around. Was up a half-hour before they went live, and came up with zilch. Only wanted MJ and Vader, but MJ never even showed up as purchasable (sold out before he went live on my end) and Vader sold out in my cart.

Had some things to take care of that morning so I couldn't drive and wait in front of a store. Disappointing but it is what it is.

Nope. Only went in for MJ, Baby Ewok, and Gitd Vader. Got the little fluffy one, but struck out on the rest. People took handfuls and went to self check.

Yeah I am slowly running into the same problem. Between Jack Jack, Wicket, and Hedwig to go along with my Mickey, Dobby, Scrooge McDuck. I am quickly running out of room for all these 10 inch pops.

Online was super easy was logged in and ready to go when 9am est rolled around. And Target must have learned about Funko collectors because they came double boxed with lots of bubble wrap. Got Hedwig and 2 jordans.

I yelled "NOOOO!" and jumped over the counter and wrestled the box cutter away from her! She proceeded to spray me with mace and now im banned from Target, go figure... ;-)



No I actually kind of just cringed, but the other lady ringing us up did politely correct her, sadly the damage was already done to poor Jack jack..

Had several giant boxes sitting on my porch yesterday! Managed to get everything I really wanted (Darth, Cap Marvel, Wicket), except since the "TargetCon," I watched the "How to Train Your Dragon" movies and kinda wished I could go back in time to buy a Toothless.

I have always loved how target protects the pops they ship. I remember getting Dobby and being amazed at the packing. Double boxed and bubble wrapped. It was one big package.

I had a giant box too and I only got 10" Wicket, Nippet, and Titanic Jack and Rose. Not sure why on the last one, but even though the contents were surrounded in inflated packing bubbles (drawing a blank on what it's called), the plastic was completely busted. The paint jobs were fine on the Pops themselves so not a big deal.

The main reason for purchase was Wicket and Nippet and they were in good condition.

I went to a local Target and they still had Jack and Rose (as well as Wayne and Garth), but it's probably not worth the hassle to return or exchange.

Ordered an MJ online on eBay (never in stock at Target).

Went to my closest Target and picked up Mufasa set. They still had Jack Jack also.

Went to a second Target...they had 3 Mufasas left, Toothless, and Jack-Jack. Can’t find Captain Marvel or Vader.

Glad I was able to catch the restock for Darth Vader the other day.

Target releases are pretty hard for me to catch when it's at 6am pst.
Will Reggie finally give us Mother 3 before he leaves?

...

Guess not :p

...

But will Funko make Earthbound pops before Nintendo (inevitably) releases Mother 3?

...

I don't think I actually ever introduced myself in the Welcome to Funkoland page :-k
