I've gotten both Dracula and Frankenstein online and in stores-- with online at Target you have to be patient and just check throughout the day.  I know Frankenstein will come up again and I'm certain the Werewolf will be there as well.

In the store-- all of the monsters were sold out when I swung by today (I only go to Target when I need something else) but on Saturday they had two Frankenstein's on the pegs in the action figure aisle.   So the monster's are definitely the top sellers of the line.  There were still plenty of Alice and Norm figures as well as The Gorn.

 That is ridiculous. We shouldn't have to play this "whack-a-mole" game to buy their products. I really can't believe Target's incompetence. I thought the whole Monsterville circus was frustrating, but this takes it to another level of ineptitude.

You clearly donít shop at Target then, incompetence is giving them credit.  Second only to Wally World for poorly trained staff and operational nonsense.

My favorite experience at Wally World was when I went to buy a TV for my grandma.  She needed it to fit on a particular stand, so the feet could only be so far apart, while the screen itself could be much wider.  Found a TV that looked like it might work, but I needed to measure the feet to make sure.  Of course, it was ten feet off the ground.  I asked for a ladder to measure the feet.  The "associate" told me to go online.  I told him I didn't have that capability, and that the online measurements would most likely not feature the measurement I'm looking for.  He proceeded to argue with me for about five minutes about how the measurements were online.  I repeated again I didn't have a smart phone.  Then he said, "Oh.  Well, let me go get a ladder."  I thought it was finally over.  Then he stopped and looked at the box the TV was packaged in, positioned much closer to the ground than the display TV.  He asked, "Is this it?"  I said, "Yes."  He then proceeded to look for measurements on the box.  I told him the foot measurements would not be on the box.  But he still looked anyway.  He finally found the measurements for the screen and said, "There you go."  And, I said, "No.  I need to measure the distance between the feet."  He finally got so frustrated with me that he went back to get a ladder.  The whole process of conversing with him took about 15 minutes.  He came back out with the ladder in less than one.  I gave him my tape measure.   He went up the three steps he needed to, and proceeded to measure the screen.  I told him, "No.  You need to measure the area between the feet."  It took him a few seconds, but he finally asked, "You mean these little black plastic things on the bottom?"  I said, "Yes."  He said, "Why didn't you say so in the first place?"

And that's not the only shocking thing about these figures - https://www.ebay.com/itm/2016-NYCC-Funko-Golden-Girls-4-Pack-Figurines-Limited-Edition-/292652946304?hash=item4423799380%3Ag%3AOyQAAOSwAspbTA9s&nma=true&si=kcB1HwvvxumoHvz1w3JB3UBTi54%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Yeah, they've been going between $250 and $400 since release. It's nuts. Ironically, speaking of Target, those were a shared exclusive with Target. I lucked out and scored a set on their site at the time. I wanted them because I have fond memories of watching the show with my Grandmother as a kid and have been a fan ever since. Had no clue it would skyrocket like that.

It's funny how the odd release like this suddenly becomes the hot seller, it was the same with the Jaws figures they put out years ago, they just really took off in price although never to this level.

Yup, those too. I lucked out and found the SDCC exclusive Bruce w/Quint at TRU back in the day but never saw the individual figures. Ended up grabbing the carded set for about $18 a figure a little over a year ago. For as much crap I think Funko makes (cough Pops cough), they have put out some amazing figures that I never thought would ever see the light of day.

That SDCC Bruce is the only thing I'm missing from the collection and I may still pick it up at some point just to be complete. You did well on your carded set also as these were going for a premium at one point although I think they either produced another run of this series or it was stock that was held up as I noticed the price drop. I agree with you on the Pops as well, not quite my thing although I have seen the odd one that looks nice. I do like these 3.75" figures though and still pick them up. As for the Mego Wolfman though......no sign of him yet for me but he is one I'd like.

They have not even popped up on the website yet. I am tired of chasing a product that isn't even that great.

I have been to Target more times in the last few months than I have in two years. I got a few, and the chase mentality only extends so far before it snaps.

Iím torn. I really want a new Wolfman that I can play around with and not fear it being damaged... but I donít know which I dislike more, the generic non-clawed hands or the ape feet.

Stick him in a quicksand pit, convertible or open biplane, etc.
