but the funny thing is I ask the electronics lady to help me, and she called a guy over to go pull them and on all 3 boxes plan as day said T 4/13 and not to be put out until then and they still sold them to me, I guess they didn't see it or didn't care.

I have since finding out about the Target exclusives have picked up 3 cases, one for me on card, one to open, and one for trade.
Funny thing is, last night I picked up just some Hisstanks and they went ahead and put out the AWE and Specter.

I finally managed to get a nice Target employee to sell me the one HISS tank I wanted. At the rate these are being hoarded, I'll be very surprized if I ever actually see a HISS tank on the shelves.

If you have been to a Target recently and have been told you couldn't have the vehicles until April 13th, chances are you have only asked the wrong person. For example, this morning 0800, I asked one Target employee about the items and he gave me the same old song and dance..."April 13th, etc". This was not a bad experience, in fact we stood around and chatted about Transformers and Ninja Turtles for a few minutes afterwards; But my point is that one of the Team Leaders up at the registers had no problems with getting them for me. In my experience, regular employees aren't always right and, unless there's a Target Bible somewhere, we're dealing with a preference rather than an actual rule. In fact this guy wasn't even part of the Planogram team (Target team members who rearrange aisles for new merchandise.) One last thing, if your store's leaders won't give them to you... (pause)...take your business else where! There IS another Target somewhere that will sell them to you. Ask to speak with someone on the Planogram team. FYI, the T in T 4/13 stands for Transitional merchandise not Street date. They do the same thing when they move the kitty litter from a shelf to an endcap) And most of the time a qualified Team Leader will do their best to make the customer happy. So go get yourself some kitty litter and Joe vehicles! Let's go now! Quickly! Move it, move it, move it!
Turn it up! I can't get down if I can't hear the sound

That is very true. The transition date means nothing more than when the plano should be set by. My store set the endcap 3 days ago. Thankfully by working at target and knowing which stores i have friends at i have gotten 10 hisses for my army and 1 for keeping in box. I just bought 2 each of the others since i am not a scalper and not interested in making money just enjoying this army building i never did as a kid. The money i've spent on this line is sick!! I have not been like this since i was 10 years old. The difference now is i have the money and i say how many i want!Lol. It helps having a wife who doesn't mind at all.

Called 1 Target yeseterday with the code number. No record.
2nd Target I hit today (& I asked 3 different employees mind you) had no record either. AT the The 1st Target, I asked a young woman of Spanish decent & she brought me out a case. I tried to get a 2nd but she said that was it. I got ALL3 & the box they came in!! Either way it's the 1st luck I have had with these. ^_^ YO JOE!!
