first one had old price check machines i was able to type the dcpi into, and it said N/A , i talked to a customer service representative who said its showing the same at all local stores.

2nd one said -4 and the employee nicely wanted to check in the back for me with no luck.

3rd said -7 , and the employee was adamantly saying it meant they are on back order

Unlikely. 4th stop said the local neca rep comes on fridays and services all the others i went to. Its possible they sold last Friday though.

They also said at the last stop (that also said -7, they very well could currently be in the neca rep box they aren't allowed to touch, and may be placed out tomorrow

Its common knowledge that target doesn't track the inventory for vendor products. So they could have 5 TID sets on the shelf, scan in their gun it will say 0. If it did track, it would say 5. But if you see -5 that means they sold 5 of something their system had 0 of. It will then fix its self back to zero about 24 hrs later. Sorry man, they didn't give you accurate information. It's exactly the same way it worked in the toys r us inventory as well.

idk. this guy was very thorough and explained all that. he said it's reset, but he also said it could be several days until it's brought back to N/A. Zero tends to mean they're in stock.

I can guarantee you this store didn't even get 7 in, they have zero space as it's one of the tiniest neca displays i've ever seen. It's far more likely the - 7 comes from the fact they got 3 in the first time, and possibly 4 last friday. But the guy there said he hadn't seen them yet either.

also very specifically said the - number can mean they have them, but not out on the shelf.

so it very much looks like there's exceptions to the rules... which sounds alot like target in general unfortunately.

Ok, well I'll personally take 1st hand experience over what he's telling you, because that doesn't logically make sense. But cool man, sorry you missed put. He's probably got them on his ebay store though

If it helps. He wasn't even talking to me. But explaining it to the younger employee I had asked, and didn't even realize ibwas there at first. Theres also no accounts ive seen of restocks in my area

Id wager they sold last Friday though, ive now had 2 stores tell me they reset 2 zero only when they get put out by the neca rep, not just after 24hrs

AliExpress Muckman arrived today. He was one of my favorite figures as a kid so I’m thrilled to have him on the shelf. Joe has articulated arms and head which surprised me. I assumed he was going to unarticulated

I can’t bring myself to open up the slime yet

Muckman review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxCJF9m_Qfc

Don't really like his reviews (no offence to the guy) but eh... we get to see the figure better

Yeah I think I am having the same problem as you guys at Target. No Turtles, just Frogs and Triceratrons. I'm just going to give up looking for them, and look towards the future for Pre-Orders and More Neca TMNT Figures.

Finally got a Disguise set via a fellow collector for total cost which was about 132 tax included.

Got my disguise set early this week, and had these 2 Joes arrive the next day.

Unless NECA announces something that I really feel I need, I think I'm done as far as figures go. A party wagon might get my attention, depending on the price, but figure wise I think I have all of my "must haves" at this point.
