My local Target has just restocked the entire wave - vehicles and all. A good sign!

So was that it for this year? Were there any plans for other figures this year?

I'd guess so. Maybe we'll see something else next Spring or Fall if these do well?

My target had restocked all of the singles again so I hope that means they are selling beyond just what I am buying. I'll keep my fingers crossed for news of Wave 2 in February .

Wow these are selling out fast!
No more vehicles left at my Target. Maybe 10 figures left.

I heard a woman say she was looking for the GIJoes while in Target today and I pointed her towards the BBi stuff instead, since Target no longer sells GI Joe.

That's both encouraging and saddening at the same time.

Those Bbi figures are a great value at $5. I feel a lot better about 3 of them @ $15 than 2 of the 50th Joes at that same price.

They are 19.99 here for the two-packs. My TRU overprices everything when they first get a new line. The DC Multiverse figures were 14.99 till the start of this month.

They're so seldom the best price in town that I often wonder how the hell they stay in business.

The JC Penny's catalog and a store called Best were my favorite catalogs as a kid. Both were phone book thick.

I forget how big those Voltron figures were.

BEST! I remember BEST! That place was the shit!

Man, being a kid in the 80's was so much better than today.

It was. Best took Green Stamps too for toys from the catalog. I went to the grocery (and anywhere stamps were given) with my mom every time to collect those stamps. She gave them to me for loading and unloading car and standing on curb with food while she brought the car to the pick up lane. I would circle an item in Best catalog and when enough stamps were gotten she would take me out to Best. Watching what I chose come down that conveyer belt was a great experience! I smile thinking about it today still.

Clearly the Voltron toy makers are agents of the Church of Satan. See the five pointed star? OK, it needs to be flipped, but still...

Target is doing their toy reset this week. I was worried BBI would lose its placement. According to my Target insider they are keeping a spot for them.
