Forum member Jodo checks in with a new store report – he spotted the Mission Series Wicket/Scout Trooper 2-pk at his local Target in Edwardsville, IL.
Personal Note: Both reports I’ve seen so far indicate to me, Target is still splitting cases at distribution centers. Hopefully we’ll see evidence of some actual FULL cases shipping to Target stores again soon!

Hasbro, if you make a Rebels Lando figure, can you include a puffer pig, too?
