Got one luckily through a friend who went to an early target release. Funko needs to stop sending exclusives to Target. ](*,) ](*,) . Their releases are really bad, employees steal the exclusives or flip them themselves or they just never make it to the stores and mysteriously disappear and then show up on eBay for 3 times the cost. ](*,) ](*,)

I was lucky to snag a pikachu but I would like to say something about the target exclusives. I like target and I have no problems with them getting exclusives. Target employees are supposed to abide by certain rules but we know that’s not always the case. One of the problems though is the people that work st the electronics desk. I was looking at the pops and the guy there openly told me he works for a third party but is stationed at the desk. He proceeded to tell me he buys all the good pops because he doesn’t have to follow the rules. That’s a huge bummer

I knew a guy who worked at Target.
Truth of the matter is, they can do this until they are caught.
Even then, they make minimum wage whatever they've "flipped" makes up for getting let go - if they let go.
So... Sigh

That sucks :( We have the people who work back there too with black shirts, but usually they are really nice and will try to help even though they don't get the little handhelds to check stock. Or at least they'll help flag someone down for you.

I'm sure multiple stores will be vying for the exclusives, given Pokemon's popularity.

I was able to get one yesterday because a kind shopper allowed me to get one of the 5 he was buying. Apparently, Target stocked the Pops in the toy aisle and as I walking there, I saw the guy walking toward me with all five in his hand. I politely asked him for one, but he told me they were for his entire family. I said it was okay but before he walked away, he turned and gave me one. I thought Target was limiting them? Or was that for the initial release?

Exclusives through Target are annoying!! It requires so much patience. I had all but given up on Scrooge, but just a random trip the other day got me a Scrooge McDuck much later after release. Dobby pops are showing up much later on. I think Target is by far hardest to get on actual release day, but patience seems to work with Target.

Glad to hear a positive target store instead of the usual negative ones. Glad it worked out and you have a happy kiddo. Luckily I was able to grab one for my 7 yr old who is not only pokemon obsessed, but also funko obsessed :)


Haha lol ...you have described our child. He is the collector not us. He is so happy to have Pikachu. He looks at it everyday and even leaves it by his bedside to sleep with it near him. It’s so cute. He really loves it.

It's cool that you got one. My stores refused to do holds because it was such a high-demand item.


We were very lucky. We have never had luck with them. It’s a shame your Target didn’t do it. Hopefully, you were able to find him.
