I won't pay more than $8 (Target price) either. Everyone needs to stop bashing Target just because their price on single-carded joes are a buck more than Wal-Mart's. So what. Target is still a much, MUCH better store to shop at if you're a collector. Let me list the reasons why:
1) At Target, every single-carded figure has the same stock number, as opposed to WM. That's awesome because if you can only find BATs at Target, buy 'em, save your receipt, and use it to return a dozen or so of them crappy Wild Bills because those are the only Joes you can find at WM unless you wanna go lurking around the place at 0000 hrs every night pestering the third shift stock crew because for whatever reason they always bitch about you opening boxes on their little pallet.
2) Target opens everyday at 0800. Call and find out whatever days your local Target gets their "toy" trucks in, and then you know exactly the best time to hunt there. Truck comes in on Thursday=Best be there Friday morning at 8.
3) DPCI. Learn what the specific DPCI for your item is. For example: Conquest & Rattler DPCI# 087-06-2047. Call or go to Target and have the service desk clerk look it up. TIP: Don't tell them what the item you're looking for is. Just give 'em the damn DPCI# and avoid all other hassle. If they have none in stock there, ask them if any other stores have it. It only takes them 2 more key strokes, and they can tell you the inventory of that item, in every other Target of a 100 mile radius.
There you have it. The "Getting the Toys you want at Target" how-to guide. Target is so much better to collectors than WM it's really not a discussion. What was the topic? BAT prices? $8.
