ToyFarce News: Target Fall Geek-Out - No Leaks? No Toys Already on the Shelves 2 Weeks Before? What Happened?

August 28, 2023

Target's Fall Geek-Out officially started on August 25th, and to the surprise of everyone, the items from the first week had not leaked or been found on shelves weeks before the event started. Could it be that Target is taking this Geek-Out event seriously, and got their act together? ...or were toy companies smarter this time? ToyFarce investigated...

The first week of the Target Fall Geek-Out event was focused on McFarlane Toys, with 2 new figures (Sinestro and Hawkman), 2 Jokerized figures (Dark Knight trilogy Two-Face and Scarecrow), and a few Batman the Animated Series products, including figures that collectors already had, but this time with crappier paint and an exclusive Build-a-Figure of the Condiment King (I cannot believe I am essentially paying $120 for a Condiment King figure...). Those figures were all revealed during the McFarlane Toys San Diego Comic Con panel, but we had no idea they'd be there so soon.

So how come we didn't see those already on shelves weeks ago, as is tradition with the Geek-Out events? How come the shelves aren't full of the NECA figures that are supposed to drop on September 29th already? Well, it could be a number of things:

- The third time is the charm: Target has figured out the formula, and managed to keep things under wraps until the correct dates, so we'll see the items revealed only when they are supposed to be.

- Toy companies didn't send Target any items, to make sure that they don't put them out too early. They have been burned not once, but twice, so this time, they're not sending anything until the correct date.

- All products are pre-orders, so there is no risk that anything is leaked before, and they don't have the products in store before. (All the McFarlane Toys products do have Oct 1st as release date)

- Complete coincidence. Most likely to be the actual reason...

This week (Week 2) will have new Lego reveals, Week 3 will have Mattel and X-Box products, Week 4 will have Hasbro products, Week 5 Funko products, and last but not least, the final week, Week 6, will be all about NECA (which is usually the first one to have all their products out before the event. Will history repeat itself? Is is why it's on the final week now?)

More news at 11:00... Hey, why isn't there a Winter Geek-Out or Spring Geek-Out?

I believe that's a good sign. Sometimes keeping the good parts for the show still holds value in my eyes.

Dont worry, Walmart got yall covered with the Wolfspider leak. They done got him in hand on eBay before his character has even been officially revealed ???

It is genuinely shocking.

I'm going to be strong for once and have decided I'm not doing it. Didn't actually have Scarecrow so I made an exception there, but as much as I'd love a Condiment King in my collection (because who wouldn't?!?) I just won't re-buy the other figs with the aforementioned worse paint jobs. I've got to draw the line somewhere. Also, McFarlane. So there's a 50/50 chance he'll eventually be released on his own anyway.
