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.

Twitter follower darthdj666 reports scoring his Thrawn wave this morning at Target in Atlanta, GA.
Twitter follower Mike Jett reports finding the HTF Thrawn wave of Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One figures at Target in Louisville, KY.
Joining all of the wave 2 card variants for the 40th Anniversary Collection, the Darth Vader Legacy Pack box has also received the text adjustment for the age recommendation – switching to all UPPER CASE. Since Target has given up the ghost on carrying this set, you can continue to find steady shipments of these hitting Walmart.
UPDATE: This text change also extends to the Darth Vader cardback inside the box making for 3 distinct carded versions:
“Red Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – UPPER CASE text
Today we have a sizable list of complied UPCs, Walmart SKUs and Target DPCIs for known 6″ Black Series (Deluxe and Centerpiece lines), Forces of Destiny Adventure Figures, and other Hasbro Star Wars related products coming out over the next couple of months. As more info comes to light, we will update this list with the corresponding product. Click on through for the data dump.
UPDATE: Two Forces of Destiny Target DPCIs clarified

Funko has updated their blog today revealing the POP! Deluxe Darth Vader with TIE Fighter. Look for this mid-June exclusively at Target!
Reports are coming in that some retailers, such as Target are receiving solid cases of the 6″ 40th Anniversary Princess Leia figure, such as the image above provided by forum member dubsack. This also appears to be happening at some Toys”R”us stores.
Now, we’re not opposed to this great figure of our favorite princess being in good supply, but solid cases of anything in this scale at mass retail seems like it could cause problems, unless we’re talking Stormtroopers or Royal Guards (even that would be risky).
Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the forums!
Target stores are running some good deals this week, including $9.89 price on TBS 6″ figures. The kicker though is that the only figures that rang up for this price at my local store were Jyn, Cassian and the Death Trooper. The tags indicate it’s all figures, so if you try and purchase others, they will likely ring up for $19.99 and you will need to explain the situation to the cashier.
Jedha Revolt sets are also $19.99 – which is a steal. And on top of that, you can text STAR10 to save $10 off a $50 Star Wars purchase, and STAR25 to save $25 off a $100 Star Wars purchase (excluding LEGO of course).
The only tough news here is on the new display shippers, they have limited Baze and Chirrut to 1x each in the shipper… which is typical of Hasbro’s poor distribution model. And the 3.75″ stuff… all stuff that was released last Fall… which is absolutely ridiculous. Where’s Raddus??

Just in time for the stock refresh, Target will be offering a 20% off sale on all Star Wars toys (excluding LEGO of course). Sale starts 3/26 and runs through 4/15.
Thanks again to TargetGod for the details.
Update: apparently the sign used for this promo is a bit unclear regarding what is actually for sale. The sign doesn’t say “all”, nor does it say “select”. And to throw one more caveat into the deal is that it is regional and not at all stores.
Based on our earlier report today, Twitter follower JohnnyUtah06 hit his Target store in Kansas City, MO and found the 6″ AT-ACT Driver as well.
