I have been checking all the Targets I visit.  I also have started watching “Stranger Things”. I wanted to be a fan of both the pony and the show 😁

Hmm, that means someone figured it out. Apparently they come in cases of six.

Or it could have been they were sent only one. I work in another retail store that specializes in office supplies and when the truck comes we get some things in the case and we get some things as loose units in totes. I assume most retailers do the same thing.

Any one in Tennessee get one yet

My parents are in eastern TN and got me one at the Kingsport Target. They had to ask for her since they were still in the back.

Yes Pike Place!  The lady said three showed up on her scanner - but she only found 1  (maybe she was holding the rest !!!)

I mean it’s possible, I want to say on the FB group someone mentioned though that each Target was initially getting a case of six. I know what you mean since I used to have to stock at a store I worked at, but at the same time I think it’s generally been said they are not supposed to be released till the 30th. I figure most stores are just holding them back, like I had to specifically ask for how many I wanted from the back. Some people have also posted they have only allowed so many per customer anyway. I live in an area where there are basically zero collectors and old stuff ends up being a shelf warmer till clearance. Mine didn’t care as much. I do think it’s strange to have the rest of the ST merch shelves reset and these guys in back.

DCPI 323-01-2761


With the official release day just 2 days away- you'd think each store would have a stockpile of at LEAST 12 each by now!

It honestly all depends on how much space a store has. I'm just saying I used to always assume that if it wasn't a full case that someone got there before me but now I realize that that isn't always the case. Especially in this case where the system showed 3 but they could only find one so I bet the other 2 are in a different tote because that has happened where I work too.

That could be it.  It is a downtown/City Target-  so a lot smaller than a usual Target. It may be that they don't get full cases of stuff.

The Brickseek always says "limited stock" - which I've learned, could mean they have 0 or more ponies.  I had to actually find the person with the scanner to check the actual stock in the store.

I managed to find one today at the retro ponies, I guess that's lucky since many stores by me are on the slow side or loaded with the scented ones.
They had a BUNCH of Stranger Things stuff by the Funko/NECA stuff, there was a cart with boxes in that area still unpacking, didn't see anything Basic Fun there.

IMO her body is bluer in person, she looks almost white in photos online. It's a very pretty color combo and it's nice to see Basic Fun get a little more experimental.

Is there specific other merch she tends to be next to in the tech section?  There was a surprisingly large amount of figures, collectibles, Funko Pops, etc in the Target I checked out today.  I think I looked pretty thoroughly, but I didn't see her, nor a price tag for her.  Unless that Target just doesn't have her out yet.
