I was just wondering If anyone has seen the starter sets popping back up at stores. I was wondering if people have been seeing target getting any hefty restocks. I live in the Central PA area but I was wondering if anyone was seeing some anywhere else in the country....
Thanks

Wizkids said they weren't sending big-box stores (Target, Wal-mart, etc.) any more until hobby shops got their supply, but who knows what's REALLY going on with this messy release

It is not a messy release. People want the game more than anyone thought they would, hey its life. You cannot expect wizkids to produce enough for the .5% chance that it will be sold. Its a business afterall, and you go out of it if you over produce.

It's a messy release.



To answer the OP, my FLGS gets one or two starters in every few weeks along with one or two gravity feed boxes. It's very sporatic and he never knows when he's getting more stock in until his distributor sends him the packing list on his next shipment.

I've hit a dozen or more Target and Walmart locations in the Houston area this week, with no sightings at all. There isn't even an empty peg or price label on the shelves.

I've seen starters in a few game stores. People aren't calling every store desperately like they were when it first came out, so they hang around a bit longer.

My FLGS just got in a shipment, but I'm pretty sure they were all on pre-order. I picked up my pre-order and a couple of boosters. I think they are starting to get back in supply, but I did put in the order back in July, so maybe not...

Multiple stores in my area I have seen at least two waves of starter restocks maybe three. And most stores still have gravity feeds.

You won't (at least at Target. Probably the same at Wal-Mart). All the CCG cards and the like are managed by an outside vendor that will try to cram as much product as possible onto the space that they have. If they are out of a certain product, the label goes away and the space gets filled by a different product.

Hastings website said they had some in early this week. I ordered a starter. I got an email about a day ago saying my order was canceled because they didn't have the supply they thought they did. This game continues to elude me.
