Join Date: Aug 2009
im 24 and this is the 1st forum ive read and used, i just deal with pcs enough at work so im new to this (laugh).... ok stop laughing now.
Ive been a collector since '89. Now im finding great things in stores and shopping the www's. so here comes my Qs
1. i know stores dont always abide by release dates but where do you find the release dates? i.e. the rex, delta 6 duke series is listed as 8/10... im not finding them, got all the rest though.
2. what are some reputable shops to find joes and the marvel universe 3-3/4" collections? im currently using alot of bbts and smalljoes.
any help would be appreciated, im recently moved to FL (Gulf Coast) so anyone around Ocala/Tampa/Gainesville are great too.
and i appologize if this has been addressed before, im new and still learning the ropes of this.
again, thanks and good luck with your collections.

In the case of movie items, they usually will have a specific date, as all major retailers want to "launch" the the toyline on the same day in the interest of fair competition. After the initial sets, there might not be a specific on shelf date.
In terms of obeying the date, it depends on a couple of things, first if the store actually has received that particular wave and secondly if they have enough shelf space to put out all of their stock. Once the pegs are full, most stores won't add space and will just wait til a percentage of the product has moved so they can restock.
For example, I initially could not find the Cobra Commander wave at all, until about 1-2 weeks later when stores were restocking with those waves. The best thing to do is give it time. Also keep checking around here for what stores a particular set is showing up at because some stores, like Kmart will keep restocking initial sets as opposed to getting new ones because they may have ordered a lot of those initial sets as opposed to a moderate amount where they'll order more and get new ones.
