Target has updated their website with new information announcing Share the Force Saturday on September 5th. Check out their Star Wars Shop, plus photo ops, a giveaway for kids and demos of new Star Wars toys.
Also, be sure to check out which stores near you are participating in the midnight launch on Force Friday.
Thanks to JediNews for the heads up.
Empire Magazine has officially revealed the first of two exclusive foldout covers for next week’s issue. The first cover features Adam Kylo Ren, General Hux and Captain Phasma.
As you are likely aware, Target stores are marking down basically everything in their older Star Wars inventory prior to the Force Friday launch September 4.
Some stuff is down 50% now, including the 6″ scale deluxes at some stores for just $12.48 per forum member TVC15’s report (recall Target lowered the everyday price on these a while back once it became apparent that there wasn’t enough demand to move them at full retail of $39.99).
Personal Note: If you’ve been holding out on these, the 6″ deluxes are pretty good, so passing on this price could lead to regret down the road...
