i hope so also. i was beginning to wonder if it fell short
I picked up on the sarcasm. However, my email was real. (Unless Jakks lied in the email.) I've been sending them emails saying that my friends and family really love the line and hope they aren't cancelling it. They finally responded with what I posted above (in italics).
She didn't say anything about TRU, just Target. I talked to my two local TRU stores and neither had any record of an incoming order of SLUG Zombies from Jakks. One manager said that they could still come in. He said a lot of toys come in on the Friday shipments that are not in their systems until they arrive. Sounds like they are really buttoned up as a firm... <that is
sarcasm> I haven't asked anyone in Target yet. I'm traveling on business this week and out of town so I can't check till the weekend.
So unless Jakks is in the habit of emailing lies to its customers, and that may be the case (you folks probably know better than I), Series 5 is still scheduled for spring.
I can't believe they don't want to get them into the stores before Easter. It would seem that SLUG Zombies would make a great Easter basket toy.
