What do you guys think of the old cardboard cut out sets like the Jawa Sandcrawler? I was never a big fan of them, but they've been growing on me.

I think the "one time use" thing was more a technical aspect of the coupon... When you got it and printed it out, you couldn't open it up again to print another. Someone found a way around that though, obviously, and shared it with the world. (Yay for them by the way)
That's where the "one time use" deal came in... It technically was something the 85,000 people were to get, print, and never be able to print out again, but they'd at least have the original to go use. There's obviously ways around that though and people used them. It is, without a doubt, all Target's fault... The "removing 'toy' from the coupon" thing though that was going on, was what seemingly ultimately screwed the pooch on this one, and so that is annoying. Target may have been able to take greater steps to stop that from happening, but ultimately it was people doing that who seem to have stopped all the fun for the rest of us... Unless of course Target would've caught on that people were using the coupon a ton, and ultimately cancelled the whole program anyway. I'd love to know if that would've been the case, or if they simply would've just let the good times roll as long as it was used on toys?
I found King Hulk, Abosrbing Man, Doc, and Grey Hulk. There was another Grey Hulk and abosrbing man on the pegs, not sure if they are shipping together though but i think that both assortments are out.
Lame indeed. I just got back from Target before reading this and I tried to hand over the coupon on some Transformers, but sure enough - there were pictures of the coupon up at every register explaining the "fraudulent activity" It never did work for me on a general purchase, but I can understand.
Just an FYI, people are starting to report that Target is posting notices that they've canceled their $5 coupon. Apparently some are altering the coupons to make them general coupons, not just toy coupons.
They sort of did in vintage....look at the cardbacks.
