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!
Adam Pawlus (Galactic Hunter, 16bit) has posted via twitter the sighting of the Mission Series Sabine and Stormtrooper and Wookiees pack at his Target in Arizona. Bring’em on I say.
The Target Exclusive AT-DP with AT-DP Driver now has a placeholder page on their website. It is currently unavailable for order but its listing should give indication that we can expect it in the next couple weeks. Remember, this item shares a DPCI (087-06-1832) with other exclusive and non-exclusive Class II vehicles so a DPCI will not guarantee finding a store with this set.
Thanks to Jedi Temple Archives for the heads-up.
The holidays are over but that hasn’t stopped the fireworks this week as a lot of news and confirmations surrounding Hasbro’s plans for 2015 have come to light. The big news this week was several lists of proposed product for The Force Awakens made their way online. Although nothing incredibly revelatory, there does seem to be no holding back in terms of merchandise. Target also gets a large spotlight this week as they’ve started implementing a new price for The Black Series that has caused quite a response from collectors. Is this an isolated event or will other retailers follow suit? Sideshow news this week is light but there is something they have in common with Hasbro – a delay of product. Celebration Anaheim announcements are starting to gear up with the reveal of an new set of pins and the debut of Smuggler’s Bounty audio drama from Kyle Newman. Plus, Flyguy and I run down our latest reviews and acquisitions from the past week! All this and much more on Episode 47 of The Realm Recap!

Twitter follower @sierraKiloBravo sends us this TBS tag image from his Target in Northern California.
$14.29 is now the price of The Black Series 3-3/4″ figures at my Target and there they will stay. Target.com is also now charging $12.99 per figure as well, while ToysRUs.com is still (for the moment) charging $9.99.
Now that the dust is starting to settle following the Christmas rush, retailers are beginning to mark down some items in the toy section as they prepare for the new year.
Among the items being cleared out is the Target exclusive Shadow Squadron set, being spotted at many Target stores for $35.00. Wal-Mart is also slashing prices on the Jakks Pacific 31″ figures, down to $20.00. We’ve even seen a report of the 31″ Vader being found at Target for as low as $5.00 and some of the Target exclusive Hot Wheels sets being marked down too.

I happened to notice this variation today whilst roaming the aisles at Target. The Exclusive Hero Series Heroes and Villains 6 pack of figures now features a sticker on the front indicating the source material for the three non-Star Wars Rebels figures. Click the image above for a closer look – if you care about such triviality.
