Target is always good about marking down old product – but $12.48 for the Vintage 9-pk? That’s what I found this evening at a local St. Louis Target. It was marked $34.98, but scanned at 75% off already. So even if you see these marked for 30% or 50% off, be sure to scan them because you could be in for a nice surprise!
Sandtroopers.com has managed to gather some new intel (with photos) of 3 new Vintage 3 packs that will be coming to Target later this year.
Star Wars “Villain Set”: Stormtrooper / Darth Vader / Death Star Trooper
Star Wars “Hero Set”: Luke Skywalker (Xwing Pilot) / Ben Kenobi / Han Solo (VOTC version!)
The Empire Strikes Back “Rebel Set”: 2-1B / Princess Leia (Hoth Outfit) / Rebel Commander
Like the previous sets, these include straight figure repacks (no new sculpts) with possible minor paint tweaks. Head to Sandtroopers.com for all the photos.
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.
In case you’re debating about whether or not to hit stores this morning – braving the onslaught of other deal seekers – maybe this will help. Target is offering up to 50% off their latest exclusives. Look for discounts of the ESB 9-pack, Clone Wars 2-packs, Mini Muggs and more!
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
The clock is ticking for the 2010 Yak Friday Giveaway! We know everyone could use one of these great sets for their collections, so if you haven’t entered the drawing yet, time is almost up! The deadline to enter is Friday, December 10 at 11:59 PM Central Standard Time.

Forum member Eopie Herder sends in a great report now that the ROTJ figures are hitting steadily. His local (North Carolina) Target as marked down the Vintage figures to $6.00! Hopefully this will clear the backlog/pegwarmers from prior waves as well. Check your local stores to see if they are observing this Temporary Price Reduction as well.
Our friends at Galactic Hunter have posted a nice preview of the Target Exclusive Vintage 9-pack that Mike managed to smuggle out of their stockroom. Head on over to check it out.
Update: Paul at Jedi Temple Archives has posted an extensive breakdown of this set letting us know exactly what is “new” or just different enough to make you mad if you are one of those must-have-one-of-everything type of collectors. Head on over for their full Research Droid Review.

Thanks to Facebook member Paul Pape for the info.
Hasbro also sends word detailing the release of the upcoming Vintage 9-Pack.
It’s a very exciting time for Star Wars as the extraordinary Target exclusive Vintage 9-pack will be going on sale soon (Nov. 28th). There are two important things to note with this set. First, this set will be more limited than some of our other recent exclusives. Second, Target (and we) are so excited about the Vintage collection overall and these 3-packs that we have decided to keep this “collection within a collection” idea going at Target. Another wave of 3 3-packs will be coming in Spring and like these, they follow the Vintage character lineups. We think this an exciting development, and thanks to Target’s support, hopefully fans will be treated to even more in this series. Thanks again for the support and be sure to get to Target soon. Happy Holidays – the Hasbro Star Wars team.
There you have it! Start looking for this exclusive set next week.
Our Imperial allies at Sandtroopers.com have confirmed the rumored Clone Wars 2-pks we reported here last week. These will be Target exclusives and follow the same format as the current 2-pks that are currently available there. Check out images of these sets after the jump!
We’re receiving more reports of the Vintage ROTJ wave (wave 3) hitting all over the US. The latest is from Yakface reader and forum member Michael Brunn. He found a few from this wave at his local Denver, CO Target yesterday.
So, it appears that Target is the place to check this week for the newest figures in the Vintage Collection.
If you’ve been holding back on Target’s exclusive Hoth Sets, they are on sale this week for $34.99. You will also find Vintage figures for $6.99 and the Vintage Snowspeeder and TIE Fighter for $19.99 – not bad!
Thanks to Yakface reader Steven for the heads up.
The Yakface Toyguide updates continue today with the addition of the Target Exclusive Senate Commando Captain and Senate Commando from the Clone Wars Collection.

Thanks to K&C Collectibles for providing us with this sample.
Despite my local Target not resetting for the glut of new products scheduled this week, they have at least enacted several Temporary Price Reductions on the 2009 Series of Geonosis Arena Sets (down to $9.99 each) and several of the Lego Sets. Check your stores for similar deals
