Picked up the GI JOE DVD battle packs at Target this morning. Had a girl get them from the back for me. As I left I could see the manager chewing out the poor girl for getting them for me. What a douche.

I was all set with just ordering online from now on instead of hunting, but with the DCPI I figured I'd call around. I called one Target and they didn't have them, but they told me who did have them. I called one that does and the toy guys says sure c'mon down and I'll get it for you...just bring the number. I say OK, I'll be there in 20-25 minutes.
I get there and there was no toy associate to be found. I walk around and see a youngish guy and made the mistake of asking him. I guess I should be more selective about who I ask. I tell him I called and so on. He checks the number and says "GI Joe battlepack?!?!" in a what-the-hell condescending tone. I told him I only wanted 1 of each and that they come 2 of each in a case. He comes back with 1 (Weather Dominator set). I said, oh when I called I was told there 4 of them. He says "you want all 4?!?!" I said no, just one of each. He says well, that's the only one we have...all 4 were the same. I said, oh ok...thanks and left with my 1 set. I wasn't going to argue with the guy.
So needless to say I woke early today and went right back there to get the other set. I go in and there's hardly anyone around. I went to electronics and see and oldish guy with one of the price checker things. He said he couldn't help me and said he'd get someone over to toys. I got over and wait 5 minutes. No one comes. I start to walk back over and see 4 associates stocking the frozen food section. 3 were of the high school/freshman in college age and 1 was a woman in her 40s. I asked the woman in her 40s and she was very helpful and got me the M.A.S.S. Device set.
I just don't understand why that guy lied to me about all of them being the same. He already went back there and brought one out. Was it really too difficult or too much to ask just to bring the other one since he already went to that trouble? I don't get it, but I got both in the end so I'm happy. The only other item that I'll be hunting will be the 2 planes. Everything else can stay BBTS preordered.

I picked both sets up at Target in Memphis, TN today.
I asked an associate if he'd look up the DCPI# (that I got off this thread) for me. Dude typed the code in an told me they had a case in the back. He offered to get me one and I asked about getting one of each and while he looked puzzled, he went back and a few minutes later came back with a sealed case of 4. There were indeed 2 of each per case.
I took one of each, thanked the guy and checked out.

Called in and had a set held for me in Oklahoma City. Went to pick them up and found two more on the shelf in the back - left the 2nd set.
I gotta say. Hasbro needs to do MORE sets like this - ALOT MORE. These are a steal for the price. To make things even better, you get a DVD of the classic episodes.
Keep the figures "original" and I'll buy as many new sets they can come out with.

Are these going to be anywhere besides Target? I sure hope so because the nearest target is like an hour away and even at that I've never found ANYTHING new there....their toy section SUCKS big time. Well, it's great if you want like 6 cobra commanders or a handful of reduced star wars figures.
