Despite my local Target not resetting for the glut of new products scheduled this week, they have at least enacted several Temporary Price Reductions on the 2009 Series of Geonosis Arena Sets (down to $9.99 each) and several of the Lego Sets. Check your stores for similar deals
Yakface Reader Steven writes in with a follow-up to our previous report on the possibility of a limit of 2 per customer on the Hoth Box Sets:
Hey, I’m a Target employee and thought I’d give you the 411 on exclusives here at the store in TN I work at. The 2 per customer rule is kind of a generic rule for all extremely collectible toys, and to be quite honest, unless it was like the Zu Zu Pets were last Christmas, 99.9% of the cashiers really don’t care. As long as you don’t come through with ten of the same thing, you should be cool. Anyway, I’ve been reading for a long time, and it’s always good to see new info on the site!
Good to know – thanks for the news Steven!
While shopping at Target today, I received a coupon with my receipt for $5.00 off any $30.00 Hasbro Star Wars purchase. This wasn’t the result of buying some Star Wars items, it printed up even though I didn’t buy anything toy related at all. With all the new exclusives hitting Target, savings like this will definitely come in handy. So keep an eye on those Target receipts!
Today I was able to score the new Hoth Box Sets at Target, and was told by a manager that there was a limit of two per customer. If anyone else has experienced this or can back this up, please share your thoughts in the forums.
Target this week is offering a special sale on Clone Wars and Saga Legends figures for $5.00 each. Time to stock up!
Yakface forum member “leebo” has posted some great loose images of the Target exclusive Defense of Hoth and Attack on Hoth Battle Packs in our forums. Head on in to see what is new and different in the two sets.
News is coming in that collectors have already begun to find the new Target Exclusive Battle Packs, retailing at $39.99. Be on the lookout if you’re wanting to add the Rebel or Imperial set to your collection – and it never hurts to try the DPCI trick, which is 087-06-2249 as both sets share the same number.
Our friends at Jedi Defender have posted some nice front and back carded shots of the upcoming Target Exclusive Senate Commando 2-pack that includes Captain Jayfon and a basic Senate Commando. This set will be shipped alongside a Cad Bane & IG-86 2-pack for around $14 each. Look for these sets in your local Target store in the next few weeks. Head on over to Jedi Defender for a closer look.
