Target Exclusive 3-pks – Price Hike!

While checking out a clearance endcap at Target today, I saw a vintage 3-pk marked down to $9.98 (or something like that)… I had bought a few of these last week at the same store for this price, and decided to scan this one on the off chance it was marked down to 75% off now… instead, it rang up at $24.99!  This was the old, dusty Needa-Dengar-AT-AT Driver set…  strange, eh?

And also today, according to our friends at Jedidefender.com, this is a new DPCI number, 087-06-1172 – hopefully soon we’ll find out more details regarding some sets of new figures… though the price increase certainly isn’t welcome!

New Product Continues to Trickle Out

Hasbro’s theoretical street date of Jan. 30 continues to be ignored. We’re receiving reports daily of collectors finding new products at their local Target and Walmart stores. In fact, today I managed to score myself the entire Vintage TPM wave and New Clone Wars assortment at Walmart. Remember, persistence pays off sometimes, but it also costs an arm and a leg too.

Toyguide Update: VC63 B-Wing Pilot (Keyan Farlander)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the B-Wing Pilot (Keyan Farlander) (VC63) from The Vintage Collection.

PROS: A solid sculpt from the TLC Evolution set makes for a great release on the Vintage card. The perfect accompaniment to the Kmart exclusive B-Wing Fighter. 

CONS: The relatively unexciting nature of the figure, coupled with it shipping on two different cardbacks pretty much guaranteed this figure “pegwarmer” status. Keyan Farlander again? Really?

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
