After reading on one of the sites yesterday that someone had found the new 12" Luke Speederbike at a Target in Southeastern Massachusetts, I stopped at my local store today (in Western Mass).
There still wasn't a sticker for them on the shelf, and certainly no sign of them there, so I stopped at the customer service desk and asked them to check the DPCI number for me. After consulting the little computer contraption thing they use, the friendly sales associate said that they had one, and I could purchase it. So, a couple of minutes later, I had my little treasure in hand.
On another note, the B-wings have shown up in the clearance aisle here this week. After about 6 weeks of not seeing any sign of them, about 10 showed up on the shelf this week in the clearance section. (Priced down to $28.90). After checking for my receipt at home, I went to get a price adjustment at the service desk. The same friendly sales associate said that they can't do price adjustments after 14 days. (The receipt does say that you can return them for 90 days though). Looks like we have to play their stupid little game -- tomorrow I will return mine (for full price) and immediately repurchase the same one to save myself $11 plus tax. I don't understand why this stupid policy doesn't get changed, but I WILL do what I have to to save a few bucks.
