Stay on Target…

Target stores are running some good deals this week, including $9.89 price on TBS 6″ figures.  The kicker though is that the only figures that rang up for this price at my  local store were Jyn, Cassian and the Death Trooper.  The tags indicate it’s all figures, so if you try and purchase others, they will likely ring up for $19.99 and you will need to explain the situation to the cashier.

Jedha Revolt sets are also $19.99 – which is a steal.  And on top of that,  you can text STAR10 to save $10 off a $50  Star Wars purchase, and STAR25 to save $25 off a $100 Star Wars purchase (excluding LEGO of course).

The only tough news here is on the new display shippers, they have limited Baze and Chirrut to 1x each in the shipper… which is typical of Hasbro’s poor distribution model.  And the 3.75″ stuff… all stuff that was released last Fall… which is absolutely ridiculous.  Where’s Raddus??

    I scored my copy of Rogue One on Blu-ray for April 4th plus a Target exclusive TBS 6″ AT-ACT Driver. Nothing else new to be found! No Jedha Revolt sets and no shipper. However, a few days earlier I scored the TBS Titanium Darth Vader/Sabine Wren and Boba Fett/Boushh helmets.

  • Bombadgungan

    $9.89 for TBS 6″. Chirrut and Baze 6″ figures. Jeda Revolt 4-pk. What is this, some alternate universe Target? Not a chance I’ll be seeing those at my neighborhood Target. Well, maybe in 2 months!

    The sale is actually great. Two Jedha sets and a 6″ AT-ACT driver for $40 plus tax. I had to buy a pack of RO trading cards because the total was three cents under $50, so i guess it was more like $42 plus tax. I really like the Jedha set. The AT-ACT driver is nice, but not nearly as visually compelling as the other Scarif Troopers. Biggest disappointment was not getting Baze and Chirrut because some target employee seems to have gotten them first.

    • Bombadgungan

      Nice! Congrats DJ! More Baze and Chirrut have to show up eventually, right? Right?!

  • I picked up the new Target exclusive 6″ Hover Tank Pilot last week at my local store. It is oustanding! When I returned to the same store today, they still had several of the exclusive on the pegs and the nice DVD/ bluray display pictured, but no display of the new 6″ figures or the Jedha Revolt set.

    I showed a manager the Target ad photo from the Yakface post and she tracked down 4 copies of the Jedha Revolt set in the backstock. I only bought one set out of respect for other collectors in my area. She seemed perplexed about where to stock the rest as I walked back to the front of the store. When I posed my set for a photo in the DVD/bluray display she walked up and said that was what she was thinking. I told her about your report on the Target endcap display for this set and she said their display had been severely damaged in shipping. She said they were unsure how to display the new toy releases until I asked about them and had simply left them in the back stock for now. She then stocked the rest of the sets in the DVD/bluray display.

      I asked about buying the display, they just looked at me like :/……;)

      • CT-7567

        I asked about buying a life-size, cardboard Artoo display that was used for single-serve macaroni and cheese cups. I asked the manager of this market if I could buy it when he was done with it. He asked for my number and said he’d call me if he didn’t need it anymore. An hour later he calls me and tells me to come back to the store where he just gave it to me. It’d a pretty cool display piece, plus I use the inside to store my food premium stuff. I’ve always liked things like cereal box prizes or happy meal toys associated with Star Wars, so I have a decent amount of stuff like that. The RO display is huge, but if you had room for it you could use it to hold Blu-rays and DVDs. Usually they just throw that stuff out. I have a huge banner too, from TPM, that was from KFC. It hung on their roof to advertise the tie-in with that movie. It’s cool, but too big to hang up inside.

        • Brian Beck

          My one Walmart still has a Giant cardboard U-Wing hanging from the celling from ‘rogue friday’, I’ll have to get a pic later.

          I thought about getting the trading cards also to get my price up, but I didn’t think they were “star waries” enough to qualify 🙁

          • CT-7567

            Check out the RO Mission Briefing cards. They look just like the old Topps cards from the OT. Most cards are from the OT, PT, or cartoons with a focus on leading up to the events in RO. I really like them. The basic RO cards don’t even have text on the backs. I actually got a bunch of those discs that Walmart sells. They used to cost around $6-$7, which was ridiculous, but at fifty cents for a pack of five they’re pretty neat. I always liked SW coins and although they aren’t metal, they’re still pretty cool. I got one with the TFA soundtrack of Kylo and thought it was cool, but I never would’ve bought them for $7 a pack. 50 cents a pack makes them a fun little side purchase.

    well got to target early… Was only one waiting to get in. Pouring freezing rain wind. Dashed for the smallest promo pallet ever (UNTOUCHED) 6 black series figures only (wtf) 2x Baze 1x Chirrut, 1x new face jyn, 2x new face andor. Grabbed what I wanted and noticed a guy who started walking fast to the toy department (running threw clothing section too)… I was first in store standing out in worst New England weather so no darn way was I going to have some random dude get something I obviously “deserved more… By way of literally braving the weather”. So he I started running after him… He beats me and just instantly starts texting someone else. I try and start a polite conversation… “hey if your looking for the exclusive figure they put him out Saturday… Sorry” he didn’t care and just ignored me… Didn’t matter what I said just a bad attitude.
    so thanks for the deports. I was able to get the only 2 new black series figures… No stores got anything else. Just same junk.

    • Brian Beck

      that’s funny/sad. had the same thing happen to me on ‘rogue friday’ waiting outside for 15 mins, only to have some young punk cut through the store and beat me there. the good news was all he wanted was the new stormtrooper helmet.

      and yeah, WTF, wave one and two cardbacks !?!. what a missed opportunity for 3 and 4.

      • SID

        yeah I bought alot this week for sure. But all I wanted was the NEW WAVES 3+4 not a single store got anything or did anything for Tuesday. Except Target WalMart had nothing not even the DVDs. Same for every store even in a mall, khols, best buy had a table (that has sat for days w/e SW toys they had) at the front of the store.
        I’m praying I don’t have to bite and just buy the figures online in cases. Breaking even by selling off what I can.

        • Bombadgungan

          Waves 3 & 4 of 5POA?

          • SID

            Random found a case of wave 3 @ my closest WalMart yesterday. I was stunned to say the least since it was untouched.

    • Bombadgungan

      Congrats on Chirrut and Baze!

      • SID

        Yeah I paid the price. Surprised I was the only one who cared. No paid attention to the displays at the front of the store… The displays now a week later gone and trashed. What a shame.

  • snowspeederpilot1

    Anybody knows the DPCI for Chirrut and Baze?

  • Jason David

    The Black Series Imperial AT-AT Driver is in stock online

  • William George

    Just came bacK from target. One display with only several items. (Sighs in sadness)

    • SID

      Yeah smallest I’ve ever seen. Same wave 1 RO 5POA, 6 BLACK SERIES FIGURES, 9 4PACKS, BUNCH OF LIGHTSABERS… NOTHING MORE.

      • Bombadgungan

        What?!! No Battle Cubes?!!

  • Ray Choi

    What’s the number you text?

    • Rykrof_Enloe

      TARGET – 827438

  • Matthew Ruch

    Was able to get another Death Trooper and Eadu Cassian on sale. However, the most exciting thing is that I was able to find the 40th Darth Vader! He’s definitely expensive, but it is by far the best version of Darth Vader Hasbro has ever made!

    • Bombadgungan

      Whoa! Awesome Matthew! Was this at Target? I can’t wait to get that Darth Vader. I think he’s worth it for the uber cool Early Bird display stand.

  • Ray Marquart

    Just a heads up….but I bought 6 of the 6 inch black series figures on Friday that range from the Scarrif Squad Leader to the AT ACT Drivers to Director Krenic. I took my receipts in today from both purchases (totaling over $100) and they honored the coupon and gave me $25 in cash. Easy peezy lemon squeezy!

  • DarthCanabis

    The reason only some of the figures are ringing up at the discounted price is because there are 2 different DPCI numbers for the Black Series 6″ (087-06-8009; 087-06-3953). The one ending in 8009 is Jyn, Cassian, and Death Trooper. The others have an older DPCI which was supposed to be phased out, ending in 3953. I have brought this to the attention of my local Target’s manager who really couldn’t care less. Basically, the case that contains Jyn, Cassian, D Trooper, C3-PO, Scarif Leader, and Krennic scans in under the 8009 DPCI however, C3-PO, Scarif Leader and Krennic scan as the old DPCI, 3953. As does Chirrut and Baze. This has caused a big issue as far as how accurate the stock is. All of the Target’s in my area show that they have ridiculous amounts of black series when in reality they don’t.

  • SID

    Of course I forgot about the coupon coming this week and bought 8x black series. Oh well.

    But that’s insane that the mailers will only have 1x of the Baze/Chirrut not surprised since last year all the ahsoka/etc. figures flew like lightning. I guess I will have to go to the store opening… Which I hoped to avoid.

  • John

    Is it possible to simply use the cut out coupon from the newspaper by itself or do you need to also download the app in order to save $10?

    • You can use the coupon in the ad

      • John

        Thanks Jayson!

      • CT-7567

        My Target put the shipper out on the 4th. I got there just as they opened and the shipper was full with the notable exception of 6″ Baze and Chirrut. I was the first and only customer in the toy aisle that day, so I’m thinking an employee got to them.

        • Bombadgungan

          So was there anything new in the shipper? Jedha Revolt 4-pk? I hope you didn’t leave empty handed.

  • Starwars Steve

    I see a few AT-ACT

  • Starwars Steve

    Nothing new at my local Targets. Still haven’t seen the Revan wave yet. From Northern Indiana…

  • Greg Sanders

    I went hunting yesterday and found nothing new except for several AT-ACT Troopers. Maybe I’ll check again on Monday.

  • El_tito

    One the local Targets had Luke and Dark Arm C3PO. Other than nothing new.
