Instagrammer Toyfiend got the Target exclusive $40 Black Series Mystery Box early. And he was kind enough to post the unboxing video on YouTube and send us the link, so all the collectors can find out with him what’s actually inside the box. And I will spoil it right here. Inside are…

  • one beanie cap with a logo
  • one Marvel comic featuring Snowtroopers
  • one “First Order” metal pin
  • the Target exclusive First Order Elite Snowtrooper Black Series figure

Let’s say Toyfiend was less than thrilled when he found out which figure is inside the box… The First Order Elite Snowtrooper is probably one of the weakest new figures being released later this year, it’s basically the same old First Order Snowtrooper, but now with a cape. And you can get the First Order Snowtrooper for something like $5-$12 on ebay. Maybe Hasbro should have chosen another figure here.

You can watch the full 3 minute unboxing by clicking on the screenshot below! It’s hilarious. Let’s see how many of these unsold boxes will turn up at 5 Below, Ollie’s, Ross & co early next year… Thanks to Toyfiend for taking one for the team! 😉

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.

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!

A lucky fellow by the name of Josh B. shared via instagram last night that their local Target stocked the pegs with the new Han Stormtrooper. The figure is supposed to have a street date of May 12th, so what witchery was used to purchase this, we can only guess. The face printing for Han looks quite wonderful, and notice the silver painted end-cap on the E-11 blaster (that very well may be a new/retooled mold). This figure was found in Orange County, CA.

If They Steal This Masterpiece, No Figure Is Exempt

You’d think a person of this unscrupulous character would just wait for these things to go on clearance. Hasbro treated the Gamorrean Guard 6″ figure right and made plenty of them for everyone. If you don’t want to pay $30 for it, then buy it when it is 50% off. Don’t steal.

This is quite a surprise. A JTA reader who has asked to remain anonymous has located and purchased The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ TARGET exclusive Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) figure in Los Angeles CA (At a TARGET store obviously). They’re out there, folks! BY the way, the sketch of Leia on the packaging is dreadful.

The Gamorrean Guard Keeps Sneaking Out On TARGET's Shelves

We are also getting quite a few new store reports of the TARGET exclusive TBS6 [P3] Gamorrean Guard. What’s interesting is that collectors are finding these in stores where Brickseek shows 0 units available. I have yet to see one of these in any of my local stores. Good luck if you’re still in need of this highly popular collectible!
