Target's 2022 Fall Geek-Out Event Starts This Week - McFarlane, NECA, Mattel, GIJoe And More

Target has launched their Fall 2022 Target-Geek Out event landing page giving us a preview of what to expect. Starting this Friday (8/26) they will be dropping new exclusive items for pre-order from various companies. This will happen every Friday until September 30.

Things will start off with a new exclusive(s) from McFarlane Toys. They could show among other things possibly the final figure in the Target exclusive DC Multiverse Crime Syndicate Starro Build-A-Wave.

On September 2, and 9 we will be getting exclusives from NECA. These will likely be the TMNT Animated Series Tokka And Rahzar 2-Pack along with Usagi Yojimbo we told you would be offered during this event earlier this month.

September 16 will see an exclusive from Mattel. Mattel is already doing Jurassic World reveals with Target on Wednesdays with the next one set to drop on 9/21. This makes me thing whatever is revealed on September 16 might be Masters of the Universe related.

On September 23 they list G.I. Joe. They don't specifically say Hasbro so this could be either from Hasbro with more Tiger Force/Python Patrol Classified items and/or something from Super7 with ReAction.

Finally on September 30 they will be offering Funko stuff with POP! Vinyl figures.

It's not clear if there will be more than one item shown from the various companies on each of the days listed. Under each company it does say "Exclusive collectibles", which could suggest more than one thing. When more details become available we will be sure to update you all here.

Seems like a pain, that's all that I see here with this announcement, more things us Canadians can't get, more bots buying all the good stuff, stuff we really want but locked away behind the walls of exclusivity , so therefore I hope everything they offer is nothing I want.

I dunno, I just can't really get too excited about anything that is a hassle to order anymore. I wanted that exclusive AzBats that McFarlane did for Walmart, it apparently came and went with no way to know when it when up for order and always shows out of stock. If I can order nice and simple, without a pain, maybe.

The GI Joes announced last year have not shipped yet. Seriously, Target / Hasbrowhat is the point?

And apparently they were shipped to Target months ago.

Your image cut out the part about October 2, where it says "Continue the excitement with one final dropof exclusive collectibles from top brands."

To Jay Cochran is it possible that there could be more first to market non exclusive neca toys for this fall geek out. Just hoping for some stuff that has been delayed for months like the ultimate Robocop figures, Bttf Doc brown in white Radiation suit, retro Matt Hooper amity harbor figure and possibly a first to Market for Ultimate Alf figure or Universal Monsters Dracula figure. We have seen this before with other neca products. I just really want to get these figures off my want list. Plus the gremlins 2 Mogwais should be coming also pretty soon. Are these possibilities since so much neca stuff has been delayed.

No thanks. I hate the fact that most of Mcfarlanes current lines are 7in scale, and most of what is released in a smaller scale by him has limited articulation. Plus, I dont really like Mcfarlanes articulation in general. His figures tend to have difficulty standing due to the weird ball joint ankles, so it makes displaying his stuff a challenge. So thats a hard pass for me.

Also, GI Joe has always been a Hasbro property, and though they occasionally license it out to other companies, I doubt theyd make an agreement with Mcfarlane considering how hes been bragging about having outsold Marvel Legends and such.
