Retro Prototype Vader A No Show (For the Most Part)

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.

Update: Retro Collection Available Today on Entertainment Earth

Sponsor Entertainment Earth will be taking orders at 9am PT for Hasbro’s Retro Collection of figures which includes Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Stormtrooper, and Luke Skywalker. If you missed out on these through Target, now is your chance to secure them. We will update this post later with the direct product links.

Retro Figures Update: Not Exclusive to Target

Hasbro has updated their info for the new Retro Collection assortment of figures.  They now state (via press release) that Target will have these this month but online/fan channel retailers will offer them in the Fall.

Update 2: These figures are now available for purchase in-store (at those stores that have them anyway) as they have been removed from “register-locked” status.
