    I’ve given up.
    Mego asked me to PM them on Facebook and I did.
    No reply.
    I’m about to return some of the unopened ones.
    I need to QC the one I did open. I’m suspicious they are not as good as they err in the 70’s.
    I think I’ve read that we can’t swap the heads which is only an issue for me if I try to get them all into the Type S body that I haven’t seen yet.
    Sigh.
    Frustrating disappointment.

    What did Spock say about the wanting being better than the having?

    I don't want different clothes. That always seemed dumb to me. I think once they hit wide release, they should ditch the numbering.

    A wish, if they continue and include rereleases, is to have the sculptor of the Mirror, Mirror Sulu redo the "normal" Sulu. The current one looks so bland. And, of course, his shirt would be the improved, embossed (? I mean no sticker!) version.

    I'm all for improvements. And that's up to and including the bodies. More articulation, and getting rid of the rubber bands would be sweet.

    There's no way a run of 10,000 is close to selling out, even for the most popular figures. My guess is that there are Target warehouses sitting on cases and cases of these figures. Doing a second run is unnecessary IMO.

    Perhaps. I scored a Gorn at Target online a couple of days ago. Then, I get this: We’ve got a quick update on the item below. Its new estimated delivery date is November 28, 2018.

    We apologize for the potential delay. Rest assured you haven’t been charged yet for this item. (We’ll send you another email when it ships!)

    View your order details page for the latest updates. Thanks for shopping Target.

    It could be that some of the stores are just not getting the product on the shelves, and let's face it, Mego isn't Barbie or Spiderman. We're a small fish in a big pond.

    Second possibility: I see pictures on the net of people buying six Draculas. I'm sure that these will resurface, once they find out it just isn't going to put your kids through college.
    So a second run, no, I wouldn't do it. Let's not go the way of BBP, with tons of product in a very short space of time, and then nothing.

    That is an excellent point. I am finding that I'm not really having a lot of trouble finding what I'm looking for with a bit of patience. I'm not finding a lot of Wave 1 anymore, but the only HTF one I can't get on the site is Dracula. But I DID find him when he was new.

    Still mostly finding wave 1. Samantha and the Tanner girls are getting thick on the shelves. I did pick up a few Gorn on the last target run. No Frank..no Spock...no Kirk...No Lon...No Al now that he has been revealed as a secret Trek crewman.
