IN STOCK! TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper)

The Vintage Collection Han Solo (Stormtrooper) figure is in stock at TARGET if you’re interested.

Not Much Good Will In This Goodwill Auction!

As we reported, the “Father’s Day” exclusives at TARGET have been collected and gathered and sent to Goodwill stores. Now they’re showing up online in auctions. (Is the hobby really this difficult now?) Anyway, JTA reader Greg A. sends us a link where there is an auction of the removed products. Do you notice anything odd? Whoever did this should give up the hobby immediately.

We’ve received some slightly “unconfirmed” information that today TARGET gathered up the remaining The Vintage Collection and The Black Series [Phase III] exclusives to be sent to charity and/or discount chains. Many reported asking TARGET associated to go back to the stockroom to get the sale merchandise. There was a reason they were in the back as this was the plan. This is supposedly universal, so count yourselves fortunate if you found them on sale. Apparently, their stock status in-store has been changed to “Item Not Found.” TARGET, known for the decent handling of Hasbro Star Wars exclusive, totally let the ball drop on these items. Many explained that their stores NEVER had the Father’s Day displays while others never saw any products arrive at all. And now it’s like they never existed in TARGET now. Although, I am sure we can expect these exclusive to visit ROSS one day.

Holy cow! If you thought 50% off was a good deal, the TARGET exclusive “stormtrooper disguise” figures have hit a new low: $3.89 for Han Solo and $5.89 for Luke Skywalker! This is unreal. Why is there such an effort to get rid of these? Special thanks to JTA reader Rich K. for the alert and image!

If your TARGET has any leftover Han Solo (Stormtrooper), Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape), or, yes, the Retro Collection figures, they’re all 50% because they fall under Father’s Day gifts, at least at JTA reader Scott K.’s local TARGET in NY! Unbelievable! He writes: “If any Target stores have leftovers the VC Han Stormtrooper, he is $6.49, the Retro figures are $4.99 and I believe The Black Series Luke Stormtrooper is $9.99.”


UPDATE: It looks like this might be universal. My TARGET had only the 6″ Luke Stormtrooper leftover and they all rang up $9.99.

Citing any store report (or even multiple store reports) is anecdotal at best. But if you combine store reports like the two examples shown in the image above with the near-instant sellout of the Walmart exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace online. Or the impossibility of finding Saelt-Marae in stock online for MSRP. Or the binge-purchasing of the all-new Rogue One Imperial Stormtrooper, you’d have to have your head buried in the sand to not see the excitement and fever for all things 3.75″ super-articulated. I believe the HasLab exclusive Jabba’s Sail Barge was the catalyst to spark this interest. (more….)

If you have the opportunity to root through more than just a couple of TARGET exclusive TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper) (VC143) figures, you may want to heed this advice. Han’s hair is essentially a “toupee” on this action figure, and depending upon where it’s placed, it can make the figure looks fantastic, or wonky. It’s very similar to how the hair on The Black Series [Phase I] Mara Jade (#14) was done. Below are two examples we encountered over the weekend in the exclusive Father’s Day display. While the two examples below are relatively nice-looking figures, you might unknowingly pick up one where the hairpiece is crooked, so make sure you inspect it before leaving the store!

JTA reader Matthew C. via Facebook user Kylo Ortiz lets us know that the TARGET exclusive TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper) (VC143) figure is hitting massively and getting placed in those “separate” Father’s Day displays outside of the toy aisle that we reported about weeks ago. They should be everywhere soon!
