We have another decoded Target DPCI to share today and it was the last one on our original list (posted here). The others were revealed here yesterday. This item is a “Star Wars Galaxy” Multipack that includes one figure from each of the serialized episodes (I-VIII). There are probably some good ol’ evergreen characters that will probably be included in here like Vader and Luke, but who do you think they chose to represent The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi?
The DPCI is 087-06-8398, (which is now active on Brickseek) retail price is $39.99 and has an estimated October 1 release date.
Leave a comment on whom you’d like to see. And yes, they are all basic (5 POA) figures.
We have received additional details, confirmations and some new reveals for a list of Target DPCIs that we shared back on July 2 (you can see the original article here). Click on through for the new info.

Recently, our friends at Jeditemplearchives shared news of Target’s plan to merchandise clearance Star Wars items in their very own planogram section.
While traveling today, I came across a Target store that had just reset their clearance Star Wars items following these corporate guidelines (this store also had an endcap filled with at least 30 more 5poa figures from TFA and Rogue One and a ton of Ezra speederbikes).
What kind of clearance selection are you all seeing at your local Targets? How low do these products need to go for customers to put them in their carts? Share your thoughts after the jump!
We’ve now received some new info needed to release breakdown of some of the recently leaked (and some officially announced) Hasbro products planned for Force Friday 2!

After some exhaustive searching through Brickseek, I managed to find the Walmart SKUs and UPCs for the upcoming 6″ Black Series Deluxe Luke Skywalker with Landspeeder and Rey with Jakku Speeder. Look for these on shelves around Force Friday (Sept 1).
Luke Skywalker with Landspeeder
Target DPCI: 087-06-9278
Walmart SKU: 373828254
Rey with Jakku Speeder
Target DPCI: 087-06-9279
Walmart SKU: 883717077
Watch for more reveals and intel later today.
Target.com is now taking orders for their shared exclusive POP! Bodhi Rook figure.
Managed to pick up the Princess Leia and Wicket Endor Adventure set over my lunch break at my local Target (Medina, MN). They had these in stockroom as well as the Rey Extendable Staff (which I passed on). As a reminder, retail for the Endor Adventure set is $34.99 with DPCI 087-06-9292. I’ll get my girls to give their thoughts on this set later tonight.
(Sorry if this purchase triggers those (you know who you are) that can’t stand Hasbro marketing to kids or to parents looking to share their love of Star Wars with their progeny.)
Upon revisiting our Target DPCI list we posted on July 2, one of the listings (087-06-8397) is now updated with a new coded description: “E8 BL Tango Black”. Since it is pretty specific and is reported as having a 10/1 release date and $19.99 price point, we suspect this may be an exclusive figure for The Last Jedi.
We shall see…. we shall see.*

Target needs to take a hard look at their DPCI system and how they assign them to particular UPCs as there is no good explanation as to why a Black Series figure from 2015 (let alone Zuvio) should still be twice as much as a figure from 2016.
Target has finally begun the process of clearancing out product that has been desperately staring back at you for nearly the past year. While most of these are the “lower tiered” 5POA style toys that even the kids seem to have no interest in, you will also likely find items from TBS getting marked down significantly as well.
While it’s good to get out with the old, seeing what is on clearance, and more importantly, knowing what NEVER MADE IT to retail, is a chilling sign for just how bad the brand is being merchandised these days. We can only hope that Hasbro has a much better game plan for the upcoming two films and beyond and turns this frown upside down.
Head on over to the forums for some close up images of the items marked down at my local store in the STL area, as well as the markdowns (which are already significant)… and for a personal rant.
Reports are coming in from coast to coast that wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary Collection is being found at Target. Black Series collector groups on Facebook and our friend Corey from First Order Transmissions reports snagging these over the extended holiday break through today.
Good luck to all those in need.
Today we have some new Target DPCIs to share that tie to the Force Friday II launch and beyond. These codes are listed simply as “Star Wars” through Brickseek, but on Target’s internal systems, some are linked to The Black Series, but we can’t confirm which at this time.
As always, thanks to TargetGod for the intel.
