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!)

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.

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

UPDATE: Vintage 9-Pack Preview at Galactic Hunter

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.

Target Exclusive Vintage 9-Pack Details

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.
