Following the release of the FunkoPop! Red Stormtrooper this September, Target is launching only-at-Target Star Wars Funko item: The Funko Pop holographic Kylo Ren. Starting January 5, 2018, you can nab the Target-exclusive Funko Pop! holographic Kylo Ren figure on its own or in an exclusive bundle that includes special-edition t-shirt. But act fast—they’ll only be available on Target.com, while supplies last. Read more about this exclusive release on TARGET’s Bullseye View!
All of our individual retail store reports are anecdotal at best. From these experiences comes discussions so we can compare and contrast what others are seeing as well. But when it comes to the TARGET exclusive “Return Of The Jedi” three-pack, I have seen some interesting trends. In three of my local stores, this set has completely sold out. I haven’t witnessed an exclusive selling through this quickly since before The Force Awakens (and these are only 5POA figures). I can’t help but think that longtime collectors who grew up with the Original Trilogy are still a strong buying market when it comes to Hasbro toys. I constantly hear from those that think they know all about Hasbro’s stats that collectors are not a significant portion of the buying public for Star Wars toys, yet I am constantly reminded that the opposite of this is true with experiences like this. Again, in my local TARGET stores are seas of Rey (Jedi Training), Kylo Ren, Jyn Erso, Imperial AT-ACT Driver, Rogue One three-packs and a ton of Forces Of Destiny products. But the only Original Trilogy-focused set has sold through in three of my local stores. How can anything against this be argued? I think Hasbro needs to reevaluate their market. Hasbro, get more Original Trilogy stuff into stores and you’ll see sell through again like we did during the Golden Age of Collecting (2006-2012).

Well, this is interesting. I had received some correspondence from our friends at Star Wars Figuren earlier this morning noting that there are different variations to how Luke’s face was painted on the TARGET exclusive “Ahch-To Island” version hitting now. Then my friend Rich Alot, who is on business in Tokyo Japan, found this same exclusive there and those Luke figures had just a slight pink hue to their faces. Now, friend Mario M. sends me an image of a Luke that appears to have no zombie quality at all (where the red/pink deco is completely gone). Click the image below for more.
JTA reader and friend Danny R. has ALSO found the TARGET exclusive Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) (Ahch-To Island) 6″ figure and we asked him to take some images inside of the packaging. Luke also appears to have a zombie-like quality to his facial paint operations. Also, accessories are less than other figures in this line. Click each image for additional details.
The TARGET exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) (Ahch-To Island) figure has been found at TARGET for $29.99. For those interested in locating one, the DPCI is 087-06-8396. Special thanks to JTA reader Destin S. for the alert who is reporting from Bakersfield, CA!

I meant to post this on Tuesday evening, but I ran out of time because of holiday travels. My local TARGET, much to shock and surprise, had the “Return Of The Jedi” three-pack out of the shelf. As you know, we’re crazy in love with this set and are hoping Hasbro will translate all of the figures inside of it to super-articulated glory. You can check out our review of this set HERE if you haven’t checked it out yet also.
It’s probably safe to assume that there is going to be a six-pack of 12-Inch Figures for every new Star Wars film coming out. The TARGET exclusive BB-8/Captain Poe Dameron/Rey (Jedi Training)/First Order Stormtrooper Executioner/Kylo Ren/First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader set serves a purpose, but there is a lot of repetition here.
