Secondly, while I'm standing RIGHT THERE, people still do it.
I have even seen several employees do it as well.
It's really funny and amuses me greatly while waiting impatiently for them to open.

The whole point of street dates for toys is to match a marketing campaign. Hasbro has plans to promote this stuff most likely with commercials and local sales. It would suck if they had some sort of midnight madness Transformers 2 event and no toys to show for it.
That being said, if I spotted RoC Joes on the pegs tomorrow, you can be damned sure I'm not dragging them all up to customer service and demanding they put them back in storage.
Forget it Jake, it's Hisstank.

I personally hate Street Dates on anything. God Forbid someone should sell something they actually have in stock!

I've already seen ROTF Robot Heroes on the pegs at Target this past weekend in those neat rusty looking boxes...
Can't wait for the ROC Joes!!

While I hate waiting, I actually prefer street dates (When stores actually follow them) because at least then I know when I should be at the store and I'm not running all over town hitting every store and coming up empty everyday
