  1. I've been able to find both spots at most Target stores- one usually near Electronics, aka 'The Collector's Spot," plus a random endcap not far by. One of the Targets I visited recently had an end cap exactly as you described, yet of course, it was empty. First time I saw an actual price tag & bar code for high-demand items like Rex-1 (still would not be shocked if those have even yet to hit the floor, tbh). The Target I work at still has their first two weeks of Haulathon products locked up in the back, and being that they are in NECA vendor boxes, we really can't go digging through them...although, a man can only take so much, lol. Perhaps my Target is unique in the fact that none of my bosses, up to the the Store Director, had any idea what I was talking about when Haulathon began. I suppose this cannot be an isolated case, but cannot be 100% sure. I just wish NECA would satisfy demand (srsly like how many people are REALLY looking for these items?). Unless they want us to continue our collections by buying on eBay/etc., which I've had to do multiple times now sighhhh
  2. The one I was able to score at was the Coral Springs Target on Westview Drive. I did get incredibly lucky, though, as it seemed that Target employees were literally in the process of putting all they had onto the shelves (even though this is supposed to be done by NECA vendors, at least at the store I work at, sigh). They had quite the selection, missing only a couple of the first two weeks items. Idk if this specific Target is a hotspot for NECA collectors, but if you have the chance & desire to still find some stuff, I'd definitely swing by this one. The boxes they were unloading from were not NECA boxes, they were what we at Target called in "repacks." This sounds silly, but this actually makes a big difference- in case you can't find any on the floor and feel like asking an employee that can search the back of store for you. Best of luck!
  3. I work in a Boca Target, not even 20 minutes NE of Coral Springs. Alas, I went to the Targets in Coral Springs just today and was able to nab a HAUL of products (Dirk/Mona, Jersey Red/Grunt, and even a Jagwar!). Couldn't find me a Rex-1, but hey, I'll take what I can get. These Targets must be in a different district than mine, because they all had already pushed NECA products onto the floor (one of them was completely sold out, luckily for me, the other one was not!). I cannot thank you enough for the heads up tip about Coral Springs Targets. Even though I work at one, these stores will be my go-to for any NECA drops going forward. Here's to happy collecting! Cheers, mate Dmarvelous5000
  4. Did you happen to see any Rex-1 or Dirk Savage/Mona Lisa packs?!? I have yet to visit the Coral Springs Target...but now I feel that I should, lol! I got lucky and was able to nab Mighty Hog/Rhino Man along with Chakahachi/Lotus and they are glorious!
  5. I work at Target, yet have not seen a NECA vendor in the store since before Christmas. It sucks, I feel like I care about Haulathon more than any of my bosses (most of whom had no idea this event was an actual thing), even the vast majority of the NECA vendors themselves. I'm in South FL and have tried to travel to nearby Target stores that I do not work at, and, of course, nothing has even reached the floor. The worst part is, as an employee, I have the right to dig through NECA's boxes. I've held these Haulathon items in my own two hands (at least for Week 1, sigh- saw nothing for Week 2 as of yet, and was busy at work while they all presumably sold out within a couple of hours). It seems that we (as in, collectors) care much, MUCH more about these events compared to anyone actually involved with the sale of them. They are never listed in the store's inventory, unless the magical NECA vendor decides to bless us with their presence...which I've almost completely lost faith in. From what I've seen online, certain pockets of the country got lucky, and a slew of NECA products were pushed to the floor and available for purchase, even items that should not have been available until Weeks 3 or 4. It just sucks that we care so much more about giving our money to NECA and Target more than they care about taking our money, so to speak. Btw, I've been following this site for a few years now, but have never contributed to the conversations. I hope to update you all on the state of NECA and Target relations going forward! ...I'm still pissed I missed out on Rex-1 and and the Dirk/Mona Lisa 2-pack; they were the primary two I was hoping to snag during this year's Haulathon. One question continues to bug me, as a longtime NECA tmnt collector- why should I care more about buying their products when they clearly don't care about satisfying demand? Thanks, to anyone that reads this. I hope your luck during this abhorrent Haulathon has been better than mine! I will be registering on this site, which I've been following for a long time now, so that I can *hopefully* give you all some more positive updates. "I'll so what I can - as long as I can." Cheers, Dmarvelous5000
