Target Vintage 3-Packs Set Found


We've received a number of reports today of people finding the Vintage 3-Packs Set at Target stores around the country. It's even being advertised ($49.99), however yours truly struck out while out in the wild this evening. How fast a given store's toy department gets things set up is probably going to vary a bit, but happy hunting!

Millenium Falcon 3-D Owner's Guide


Ask the guys I was with at Toy Fair last year, and they'll tell you how nerd-ishly excited I was to see the new 3-D Owner's Guide to the Millenium Falcon being highlighted on the Official Site.
