As we have previously mention Target Stores had a release date of 5/12 for their Shared Exclusive Retro Collection figures and their registers were locked to deny any sales. But as of today May 1st their registers are now allowing sales. Their Inventory system still does show a release date of 5/12 though.
Per a Target Store Toy Manager I spoke with today, since the registers are now allowing sales of these figures (currently), it is at the store / department managers discretion if they will pull the Retro Collection figures from Back Stock and sell them now. If you happen to see these on the floor already they are fair game.
Also he noted that Stores may limit how many figures one customer can buy.
Anyways reports are starting to trickle in of readers buying these already. The DPCI# printed on the sales receipts is 087-16-8221.
