Got some at WHS in Kingston just now. According to the staff there, Twickenham and New Malden branches have had them since late last week.

I have now seen them in the last three toy shops I went into in the UK this weekend, an independent, the lego store and an entertainer, so I think they are pretty much out everywhere in the UK now.

I've already broken my only buy two a week rule, but that mainly because I wanted to buy the queen and tribal woman first and could not find tribal woman in the first box I looked in and ended up with the queen, scary knight and pig farmer (and a few others for other people). And then in the next shop I did find tribal woman but not before I had put aside the pest controller, ballerina and the faun. Now I happy that I won't struggle to find the others and will take my time collecting the rest.

A few of the Targets here in MN seem to have some...

Really! Thanks! I will NOT be Minifigureless Minnesotan this time! :P

I guess my lack of mention was indicative of the face, but I saw not a trace of S15 the other day when I checked my stores. Again, this series hasn't hyped me up as much, so I'm spared the disappointment. I just hope I remember to buy these things, because I really do enjoy several of them, and I'd regret missing them.

I finally had a chance to get back to the Target that said they had them in stock since mid December. Sure enough, they pulled out two boxes with January 1, 2016 release dates on them. Guess they weren't pulling my leg after all! Got my 16 plus a few extras. Now I can finally rest for a few months :)

Wow, you're so lucky. Maybe I should try doing the same, are all targets putting them with a January 1st release date?

Not sure. But if the boxes have a January 1 date on them, they'll probably just put them right on the shelf when they arrive in their stockroom (although in my local store's case, they sat on them for two weeks after the release date. Whatever. I'm glad they waited!)

Also, I can confirm the Target stock number is 204-00-1379. Give that number to an employee and they can tell you if there are any minifigures in the stockroom.

My son shared MicroJow's post with me today. Stopped at 4 Target's today, asked employees to check in back, and new cases came rolling out. Only encountered issues at one store where an employee stated they had been told by corporate not to put out until 1 Feb, but turns out the guy was a Lego fan and let us purchase the ones we wanted before he took the box back to the stock room. The Queen and Faun just got settled into our castle MOC!

Thats so cool of the target employee to help you out like that.

Visited two Targets today, found some at one of them - bought 8 but found out that I misidentified one of the bags and got an "extra" Faun - not sad about that one bit. So I went back in and grabbed five more - but got two more doubles which is fine because I always end up collecting two full sets. So out of the 13 I bought I got 10 originals and now only need the remaining six. So, pretty happy because I was really surprised that my Target had them out early. This NEVER happens.

I found some at a Target in OKC. I bought the three remaining in the LEGO aisle (Faun, Clumsy Guy, and Janitor), but when I was leaving I noticed most of a box near the checkout where all the gaming cards are kept.

That's where I've been finding figures at Target lately: at the front of stores, as opposed to in the Toys section with the rest of the LEGO. A lot of the checkouts with "impulse buys" will have them hanging up, too, mostly likely at the bottom. None of the Targets I've been to have had Series 15, but now I know where else to look if they aren't in the Toys section...

My target always keeps them by the toy section however, for every series the move them from aisles to aisles. Idk why they do that.

Same here. I've almost missed the display numerous times because they move them around so much.

Went to a different Target in Charlotte, NC today (University City) and they had a maybe half a end cap display left. It took forever to find a queen. I am pretty sure I picked up the last one. They seemed to have plenty of Sharkguys left. I walked away with the Queen, Shark guy, Clumsy guy, and the Janitor.

They had the end cap on the same aisle as the Friends sets.

The closest Target to me likes to put them in the action figure aisle. They also carry the Megabloks figures there.

These seem to be cropping up in 'normal' shops in UK now. Spotted some in local Sainsbury's today, at last.
