Well it looks like Hasbro’s and Target’s decision to carry over the Vintage Collection DPCI over to the 3-3/4″ Black Series finally has some benefit. Reports are coming in that various stores are clearancing out their remaining TVC figures for $4.98-$6.98 and that means new Black Series figures are getting the discount too. Click on through for proof.
For folks trying to track down the upcoming 6″ Black Series figures, plug DPCI 087-06-1941 in the system to aid in your search.
While hunting for new/any Vintage figures tonight, I rescanned that new DPCI (087-06-2413) that turned up in the Target database last month. To my surprise, it now registered at an odd clearance? price of $6.28. Too bad this particular store didn’t have any new figures to take advantage of this bargain.
On a similar note, reader “Scott from Tulsa” sends in a report of finding TVC figures clearanced down to $4.00 at his local Walmart.
One of my local Target store did their reset overnight which yielded new shelf tags for the Movie Heroes and Clone Wars basic figures and most notably the Vintage Collection. The previous DPCI for the TVC line was 087-06-1351 and this particular store charges $10.99 for them (yuck) the new 2012 Vintage DPCI is 087-06-2413 and is priced at $8.99. Save these numbers to do some checking on your own if your store hasn’t reset their aisle or endcaps yet.
The crew over at BanthaSkull.com have posted a new list of Target DPCIs taking us from now through the first part of 2012. Head on over for the breakdown.

News is coming in that collectors have already begun to find the new Target Exclusive Battle Packs, retailing at $39.99. Be on the lookout if you’re wanting to add the Rebel or Imperial set to your collection – and it never hurts to try the DPCI trick, which is 087-06-2249 as both sets share the same number.
