I don't know if it has to do with Chinese New Year, container ships dumping their cargo in the Pacific Ocean or getting stuck sideways in the Suez Canal, but there hasn't been any Lionel or NASCAR Authentics released in over a month.

My local Target just added 2020 Wave 9, so there's no hurry for a new batch here in Chicago...
Strangely enough, the Target by me in the Chicago suburbs had Wave RW2 and previously had the AS1 waves. I was surprised as usually they don't get the latest wave until the next wave is announced.

Don't blame the producer here. If you want to "blame" anyone it's the distribution side of the outlet you're shopping at. Moreover, the items we're discussing here are entirely store dependent. Honestly, I don't blame my city Target stores for being late and/or never having a wave because it's just not that hot of a market here in the heart of Chicago. When you still have items on the pegs from a year ago, why keep stocking the brand new stuff?

Along with the reasons I mentioned above, I just read where there were 16 container ships having to wait to dock to unload at the Port of Los Angeles. Things are really backed up.
