I rad on another forum (not sure which one) that the new Target reset has 3 pegs for JLU 3 packs and 8 pegs for JLU single packs. That definitely is good news for JLU but 8 pegs for single packs would kind of signal that the line may be heading more in that direction, because that is quite a bit of space.

Was there any mention of the 10" figures?

8 pegs is an awful lot of space. Star Wars has 8 pegs for basic figures at Target, if you want a frame of reference.

I hated it when Target decreased the 3 packs peg to just 1 during the middle of this year so 3 will be most welcome!

I want to know if the 6-pack still has a space on the shelves. (So I know if I need to scramble to find a Grodd set.)

Saw some disturbing trends at two Targets today. I don't know whether these were part of any resets or just "Let's flood the aisles with whatevers left before Christmas." At one, half of one side of the action figure aisle was replaced with oversized RC cars. At another Target, at least a third of one side was over flowing with Pokemon, on the pegs and the shelves. These Pokemon were not there yesterday. I haven't seen so much Pokemon in ten years. I thought it was on the way out. In both cases, that's a lot of real estate that takes away from other lines.

I'm thinking that they had so little merchandise left they filled the isles with what was in the back so it didn't look barren.

One of the Wal-Marts I frequent had one of the emptiest toy sections I have ever seen. Which is good for business I gather...

My local Target had a similar scenario. The entire action figure aisle was replaced by "Kool Toys" and what was left of action figures took up a half of the diecast car aisle. They're probably just flexing out product for the holidays.

Well, my Target has marked the JLU 6-pack for clearance, meaning if they don't get Grodd in a post-Christmas clearance shipment, I'm SOL. :(

I'm seeing 30% off currently, so $13 and some change.

Checked my Target again. They had three of the orange Doomsday packs.

Did we ever find out what the DCPI was supposed to be for the Grodd set? The fact that they weren't in the system leads me to wonder if stores put them out early and they were supposed to have another number and be part of the next reset.

All those additional JLU pegs may be "holding spaces" for the Dark Knight line as well...just a thought.

Mine was the same. I'm not too worried. It's an After-Christmas DISASTER!
