Target has been positioning itself to be big in toys, especially with the demise of Toys R' Us.

Quote:
“We’re playing to win in toys,” Cornell told reporters in November a couple of months after Toys R Us filed for bankruptcy but before its announcement earlier this month that it would liquidate all of its U.S. stores. “We think there’s opportunity to expand share.”

they can sell the 1/4th Henson in retail just not the 7 inch ones. You haven't even seen the supposed "gamestop Exclusive" ones so how can you tell they won't be anything to write home about?

No buyerís remorse at all. The SDCC box sets will hold their value based off their AMAZING packaging alone. I do hope everyone gets a chance to get these eventually whether it be a bare bone exclusive or SDCC set. I am just thrilled to get mine next week! Sorry, Powder.

Thread being in the TMNT section gave me some false hope for new NECA TMNT stuff, not just that NECA itself will have a presence in Target.

But I guess that's cool for those who have a target

While I immediately got giddy at the thought of a NECA wall/isle in Target, I also got a rush of sadness, as this was my absolute favorite area in Toys R Us. I would go about once a week to check out the offerings.

Still, this is pretty good news and I'm excited to have that ability to purchase great NECA products in a store. There's just something special about rummaging through the products to find the one you want to take home instead of ordering off a site.

Itís just that youíve made it perfectly clear that you want the SDCC set to be superior to any other releases of the small scale Henson figures.

How else can we interpret that? Why wouldnít you want everyone to get a chance at the best set?
Well, logic implies itís because youíve already paid a good deal for your set and you donít want to feel cheated or gimped if the set becomes more easily available and at a cheaper price.

Itís undersrandable but comes across as seriously petty.

I hope they do, too. I really do. I hope everyone can eventually get a set and the line continues and evolves. I am just a sucker for exclusive packaging so it’s one of the big reason I want them as that VHS box exclusive is just damn cool. Stupid I know but I already have all the figs in 1/4 scale so this is just a cherry on the top kind of thing. Really a great time to be a turtle fan.
