Usually when stores are out of a doll, they just mark it with 'out of stock online and in store'... but the fact that the dolls aren't there at all is what's 'worrying' me.
I've been to three Targets and three TRU's within a 3 hour radius of where I live, and none of them had anything more than Exchange.
I'm just scared I won't ever find a Vandala in store (or be able to buy one online) and will have to resort to buying the damn thing online from scalpers, like I've had to do with most of the Target Exclusives (although I know she's not one).
Relax and don't panic. The lines are new, so they probably sold all the dolls they had and they'll most likely have another load of dolls soon to restock the shelves.
The websites for Target and Toys r Us are not updated as often as they should be so therefore, they're unreliable and cannot be trusted. It's best to simply go directly to the stores, instead of checking their websites. ;-)
The stores locally tend to be worse than the websites. lol.
I was just stunned because the Haunted line WAS on the Canadian TRU before xmas, but it said 'out of stock online and in stores', and now they're not even on it at all.
With the exception of Rochelle and Spectra, all of the dolls from the Haunted and Getting Ghostly lines are now available in Targets and Toys "r" Us. Plus, the entire wave 1 and wave 2 of the "Gloom & Bloom" line are available are Targets. Found Venus and Jinafire yesterday, and they also have Jane, Catrine and Cleo.
All of the Haunted? Including Spectra and Rochelle?
