It’s feast or famine, y’all! Instagram user blueharvestcollector found the latest wave of The Vintage Collection figures at his local TARGET in Boston Massachusetts. This wave includes the new Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) and Chirrut Imwe.

Something from 2015 is rearing its ugly head five years later. During the Rebels line, Hasbro released commemorative four-packs based on the Star Wars films. Today I found The Empire Strikes Back sent at my local TARGET, and a few days ago, JTA reader Jon M. found the same. Nothing is arriving to stores, so maybe TARGET is clearing out its warehouse to have some Hasbro Star Wars stock?

Get Ready For Target's Mando Monday On October 19th

Target is getting ready for the first Mando Monday. Among the first items you will be able to pre-order are a Baby Yoda aka The Child Lego set and a Funko Pop of the Mandalorian with Baby Yoda. No word yet if something for the Black Series or Vintage Collection and the rumored Mandalorian build-up packs will also be released. But there will be several Mando Mondays and something Mandalorian related will certainly be revealed for the two Hasbro action figure lines. Will you be looking forward to Mando Mondays or are you already dreading the bots, scalpers and assorted other scum and villainy snatching all the products from under your nose so they can sell them on ebay? Thanks to Mike R. for the alert!

Mando Monday is coming

How Did You Make Out Today With The Galaxy's Edge Exclusives?

How did you make out at TARGET with the Galaxy’s Edge exclusives? Some have commented already that the Droid Depot 3.75″ figures were the hardest to find. Let us know and show your pictures in the comments!

We have some good news to report. JTA readers are getting their TARGET exclusive TVC Galaxy’s Edge TVC Millennium Falcon. And they’re coming in an outer shipper. JTA reader Shaun S. said his item was in perfect condition. I find it particularly charming how Hasbro has labeled this item with the letters “BMF.” This was a collecting-community generated acronym, and it’s stuck.

No Power Droid For You Until October 1st?!

It appears some TARGET locations have register-locked the Power Droid figure from the rest of the wave UNTIL OCTOBER 1st! Clone Commander Wolffe, Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper), and K-2SO all still ring up, but Power Droid will put you in register jail. Let us know if you experience this too. Special thanks to JTA reader Alientek for the news.

Hasbro, you know that The Vintage Collection packaging is a HUGE part of the collecting experience. And it appears there is a STRONG possibility that the TVC Smuggler’s Run Millennium Falcon will ship WITHOUT an outer box to protect the original packaging. From the explanation on their website to confirmations made by Guest Relations at the 1-800 number, it seems collectors won’t be getting their investment protected. If the interpretation of this is incorrect, we’ll happily issue a correction, but please confirm either way. We understand they’re going to slap a shipping label right on the front of the actual TVC box. If required, can you please work with your great retail partner and advise them against this practice? Can you work with them so they can offer collectors something that will protect the packaging/box of this treasured item? Let’s prevent disaster and an angry collecting community. Thank you! Also, thank you for getting more units up for pre-order today. That was the right thing to do. But so is ensuring these large vehicles ship with protection too.

Did you blink and miss the TARGET pre-orders this morning? You’re not alone. Complain about Walmart all you want, but at least new products last longer than 90 seconds to place a pre-order. Yes, they have room for improvement too. Whether the numbers for the three new Galaxy’s Edge items revealed today are lower in production or not, Hasbro needs to work with retailers more closely and put things into place to help meet the demand. JTA reader RYOGAM left a comment with a very reasonable and intelligible option for these pre-orders. Click through to see what he suggested. In the comments, let us know what you think about his idea, or if you have other suggestions too.

Found! JTA reader Eric S. found the latest wave of The Vintage Collection figures at TARGET. Interestingly, I thought this wave was a Fan Channel outlet-only wave, so I now have concerns that they might clog up shelves if there isn’t enough support to purchase them at the brick and mortar level.

TARGET Reset Next Week! Here Are Some Details!

JTA reader Jason S. stopped by his local TARGET and found The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary] wave 1 but was denied the purchase. The store clerk told them they have a street date of August 1st. If you also find this wave in your local store, please let us know if you are told the same thing about August 1st being the release date. That feels pointless to me.

Target reported yesterday that toy sales for the 2019 holiday season disappointed and didn’t meet expectations. Toy sales were basically flat compared to 2018. Click through for more!

Again, I don’t get it. The Rise Of Skywalker is barely over a week old now. The attention span for movie marketing is nonexistent. I neglected to post yesterday that TARGET was running a Buy Two Get One Free special on all toys (it has now expired). I managed to get three of the Cave Of Evil three-packs for a decent price. But, I also noticed that TARGET has placed its exclusive Supreme Leader Snoke & Rey Galaxy Of Adventures set and The Black Series [Phase III] C-3PO & Babu Frik on clearance. Also of note, the Cave Of Evil Special Action Figure Set is still $39.99.

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.
