New Lego Sets Hitting Shelves

While checking out my local Target this morning I ran into the several new Lego Star Wars sets been reset after the aisle’s decimation during the holidays:

7869 Battle For Geonosis $29.99
7913 Clone Trooper Battle Pack $10.99
7914 Mandalorian Battle Pack $10.99
7915 Imperial V-wing Starfighter $24.99
7929 The Battle of Naboo $29.99
7930 Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship $49.99
7931 T-6 Jedi Shuttle $79.99

So if Lego is your thing and you’ve got a few extra credits burning a hole in your pocket, you can start checking your Target stores this week.

Vintage 9 Pack on TPR?

If you have passed up to this point on the Target Exclusive Vintage 9pk, you might want to cruise your aisles again. A local MN collector friend, “JediMoses”, has found this on Temporary Price Reduction to a very attractive $35.99. This is a localized markdown and not all Target are observing this price but if your store had an ample supply of these you might want to visit (or at least call) to check. DPCI: 087-06-1620
