Although today was stated by Target’s corporate site as the release date for the Retro Collection Prototype Darth Vader, most stores have not received any of these figures. Fortunately a check this morning via the Target website at a store in Ocean, NJ yielded 34 of them. Some were set in the Funko section and two pegs worth in the Star Wars section. Best of luck to those on the hunt and thanks to Jonathan R. for the hook up.
This video showing a re-imagined final duel by Darth Vader and Obi Wan Kenobi aboard the Death Star by FixtitinPost has been making the rounds online recently.

Amazon currently has the new Black Series Hyperreal Darth Vader listed at $49.99. And before the haters start to chime in that this is already a failure, you’ll note that this isn’t a sale – it’s the regular listing price with no discounts/savings. You can also see why our exclusive report on this figure was originally listed at this price, then revised to reflect Hasbro’s MSRP of $79.99. We’re not sure what’s going on here but if you’re at all interested in this, I suggest ordering it now to lock in the preorder price guarantee.
UPDATE: Price changed to $79.99
