Target is having a huge toy sale where you can save $10 off of $50 or $25 off of $100 (their typical deal). The good thing is, unlike Force Friday II, the discount actually comes right off in the cart. No waiting for gift cards or anything like that. I took the opportunity to grab some of the vehicles and two-packs I held off on. No need for a promo code either! Automatic savings. Click the link to go right to the Star Wars items.
I know it’s October and we’re all getting into the spirit of the Halloween season, as was this Target shopper, but this is ridiculous! We’ve posted many theft articles as of late and I think the theft issue is bound to come to a head (I know, I’m not funny!). Something needs to be done, but what? JTA Reader MaxOfRen was pretty excited to find this new Headless Ren variant, but was disappointed that it wasn’t in mint condition due to the cutting on the bubble. Such a shame! I guess this is how you get your SA 3.75″ Episode VIII Kylo Ren if you “forgot” your wallet but remembered your box cutter.
You saw our Walmart store report in the beginning of the month that both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda from the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line were hitting there. But now JTA reader General Hux has sent in a report letting us know that they’re now hitting TARGET. Let us know if you’ve found them there too!
TARGET has added a preview page of the Star Wars Force Link Star Wars: Return of the Jedi Battle three-pack. It has a release date of November 1st. It’s cool to know we’re finally getting that Emperor’s Royal Guard that was planned for the Rebels line a few years ago, although, it will be retooled to accompany the Force Link feature. Special thasnks to JTA reader Ginji A. for the alert!
JTA reader and good friend Mario M. took his family to Force Friday II at TARGET which was his daughters’ first experience. They won the giant pog that TARGET raffled off that nigh!. I don’t know about you, but I see three adorable things in this photo. Congrats Mario!
Those who prefer to wait for the trades can now pre-order the entire Marvel Darth Maul mini-series from Target.com. It’s marked down to $11.59 and I believe that it is definitely worth it a read. The overall character study of Darth Maul mixed with his first Jedi encounter makes for a great series without overwhelming the already complex Maul story line. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out our reviews on the Darth Maul series in the Comic Research Droids Reviews.
JTA reader Bryan L. alerts us to an upcoming TARGET ad at TotallyTarget.com which not only confirms TARGET’s already known participation in Force Friday II, but also that they’ll be offering similar discount coupons like they did with the original Force Friday event. Check it out!
I felt like this one deserved its own post. The huge AT-ACT Walker is on clearance at Target for only $101! That’s right, $101 right now! I can live with that price (not to mention free shipping).
Once again, you couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried. JTA Facebook friend Michael B. sends us a shot of an upcoming TARGET reset. Do you see anything out of balance here? Is the unsold Star Wars toy volume so high that TARGET needs to devote this much retail real estate to sale merchandise? TVC fans: you’re going to have to step up to the plate next year and affirm to retail that we mean business.
What’s grosser than gross? How about walking in to TARGET and finding the only case assortment of TBS6 figures this TARGET ever received and then being denied to buy the one and only figure you want from the case assortment because the DPCI for that figure is discontinued. Madness! Click through for more!
The convention exclusive Bodhi Pop! is available to order on TARGET.com! special thanks to JTA reader Duane K. for the alert!
It’s hard to believe: so many collector have yet to see ANY 40th anniversary figures on the shelves while others are finding them for less than $4 a piece. It might be time to stalk your local TARGET. JTA reader Marcel E. found the 40th anniversary Princess Leia Organa for a mere $3.98. Insanity!
A couple things to discuss about Target today. In Targets, in what seems like all over the country, they are clearancing out a TON of Star Wars items. I know my Target in Milltown, NJ has begun putting almost everything on clearance except for a few notable items such as the TBS Rogue One 3-pack and the Rhino Tank Driver. We also received some images from readers on discounted items which you can view below. Which the good comes the bad. Check out the shipping horror story that Jason experienced after the jump
Update: More shipping damages! See below.
All of The Black Series [Star Wars 40] figures are IN STOCK at TARGET.com. They have a few other “40th anniversary” items as well. Special thanks to JTA reader RBlock5183 for the updated alert!
The Black Series [Star Wars 40] Death Squad Commander and Jawa are IN STOCK at TARGET.com. They have a few other “40th anniversary” items as well. Special thanks to JTA reader Chase H. for the alert!
Oh my heck! It’s another Festivus miracle! Aside from TARGET exclusives, my local TARGET has received NOTHING NEW since Rogue Friday last September (they even still have more than a half dozen The Force Awakens 5POA figures). But this past Saturday I was stunned to find a broken up case assortment that included three (3) beat-up Stormtroopers, Chewbacca, two (2) Jawas and one (1) Death Squad Commander. The figures were shoved against their will into a tiny peg space not meant for these figures, but hey, I can no longer say I have never seen 40th anniversary figures in the wild. Shocking!
UPDATE: DSC still in stock as of July 8th 11:20 AM
As I was picking up some comics, I decided to swing by the Target and see what was happening there. Alas, no 40th figures and barely any clearance items honestly (although there was a TON of 5POA TFA figures still full price on the shelves), but what I did see was one Vader Legacy pack sitting there with a clearance of $27.99. Now, I was going to wait on this since I’ve seen them lower from other reports, but for some reason I decided to scan it and lo and behold it was down to $19.98. I recommend checking your Target because they may just not have updated the stickers.
You’ve surely seen the store reports from TARGET now, but what you’re probably not being told is that many stores are only receiving partial/split/broken up cases. You think there might be limited availability of these or something, huh? JTA reader Brandon Y. shares his own local five (5) TARGET store stops and couldn’t compete a case between them. Let us know what you’re finding in the wild….
Well, Target has the 40th Anniversary Death Squad Commander in stock online RIGHT NOW! If you need one, I suggest you grab it now!
UPDATE: Well, that went quick!
JTA Reader Christian C. brings to our attention that his local Target has dropped the price of The 40th Anniversary Darth Vader Legacy Pack down to $19.99! That is closer to what they really needed to price this figure at to begin with. I believe $24.99 or at the MOST $29.99 would have been more reasonable, but $39.99 was extremely high. Even for a figure that is of an extremely amazing quality such as this Darth Vader is. Heck, I will most definitely be buying up a few more at this price! Have you seen this in your area yet?
UPDATE: This specific Target is located in Texas.
No…There is another… possible shipment on the way to your store. Even though we have been careful to point this out in our previous articles, there still seems to be some confusion and I told you so’s, so I will clear this up as best as I can. Hasbro HAS shipped the last of their TBS6  Wave 2. That means those shipments will be going to retailers and distribution centers where they will be sent to stores, not that Wave 2 has suddenly disappeared off the Earth and seeing them on shelves is a conspiracy. So, you may be seeing them in stores until the distribution centers run dry. If you still need them, it might be time to start checking stores. JTA Reader Richard sends us an image of Wave 2 Pallets on their way to Target. Keep an eye out!
If you’re a Pop! collector (or even if you’re not) you definitely want to add this Darth Vader In His Tie to your collection. I haven’t been able to find it in stores yet and I really love the way they did this Pop! with the top of the Death Star as the base. Thanks to JTA Reader Eric for the heads up!
Here’s a blast from the past! JTA reader Ben S. directs our attention to a 2012 exclusive that barely made a splash at retail when it was originally released. But here it is NOW on TARGET.com. This is the 104th Battalion Ultimate Gift Set. You can see our own review on these figures HERE. I remember this showing up on TARGET.com a couple of years ago for about $50, but the price has been adjusted back to its normal MSRP of $29.99. A cursory eBay search will prove to you that these sets average about $75 on the aftermarket and some of the clones in this set go for $30 each loose. If you never got this set, this might be your last chance to grab it for a decent price!
….and saw himself on sale for less than 5 bucks! I’m not good at telling jokes, so thankfully this isn’t one. How would you like to pay under $5 for some great The Black Series 6″ figures? Well, JTA reader JediRebel77 shares with us quite a find at a local Target store. Even though we all love to find a deal, Target REALLY needs to make some changes to the way they handle inventory for Star Wars figures. Click through to see what kind of deals we’re seeing.
