Hasbro finally gets around to letting us know about the exclusives... or rather Lava Vader that we've known about forever.   ::)

April 2nd at Target

Nothing about the other rumored exclusives (cups, clones, etc).

Hasbro FINALLY gets around to trying to level out the confusion about these...

Wal-Mart Exclusive Info for April 2nd

And, for a limited time only, collectors will be able to purchase (while supplies last) the Wal-Mart "Early-Bird" Exclusive - classic reproductions of the first four original Star Wars action figures from 1977. Only available on April 2 & 3 at the Wal-Mart 48 Hours of the Force tent stores and on, the Early Bird is an exclusive every fan will want to add to his or her collection. When consumers purchase the Early Bird, they receive a certificate that they mail in to get the four Star Wars action figures: Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2-D2, and Chewbacca. This mail-in figure promotion was done back in 1977 for the original Star Wars movie and Wal-Mart and Hasbro are bring it back to celebrate the last movie in the saga. Only a limited number will be available so fans will have to act fast before they're all gone.

As of March 5th, there are 1304 Target stores...
1304 Stores * 36 figures/store = 46,944 Lava Vaders (at least)

That jives with the reports that say that right on the Vader figure it says "1 of 50,000".

I guess I am not surprised that out of 1300 stores, 1 or 2 or even 10 can't follow directions.

Even if 50 stores screw up and put them out early, that still means that 96% of the stores are following the rules...

Maybe Papatine used the power of Six Sigma to streamline his processes for Death Star Construction?

You know, all of his "process improvements" added up allowed him to reach a much tighter construction entitlement of only 3-4 years instead of 18 years?   :P

I imaginge that once you build ONE Death Star, you've got all the kinks worked out and can do a much better job the second time around...?


Ultimate Villian Darth Vader 12" Figure x $29.99? + 6% sales tax = $31.79[/li]

Does anyone know if my prices are off for anything?

They all look pretty close to what we've heard so far, with the exception of the 12" Ultimate Anakin/Vader.

The Hasbro MSRP = $49.99, and had it listed for about the same.  I think it was in the Target and TRU computers for around $40-45.

This just in from today's TRU Press Release:

Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith Holographic Yoda Figure from Hasbro

Jedi Master Yoda, a close friend of the Wookiees, travels to their homeworld of Kashyyyk to help personally spearhead the Republic defense of that planet. While there, the revered Jedi sends a holographic transmission to the Jedi Council to discuss recent ominous events. The Holographic Yoda figure features unique translucent styling and is available only at Toys "R" Us beginning April 10 as a gift with a Hasbro Star Wars purchase of $25 or more. Not sold separately. While supplies last. No batteries required. Ages 4 and up.

No need to go to midnight madness I guess if they won't even have Holo Yoda yet...  >:(


I don't even want to guess...  :-\

If they have figures through #40 as some are saying, well that's:

38 for carded collection (counting both Red and Blue guard, minus the 3 I grabbed early - yoda/tarful/r2)
41 for loose collection (counting both Red and Blue guard)
6 extras to open (Army builders for guards & clones)

Then, we add in:
4x deluxe figures
2x small vehicles
1x large vehicle

That brings us to:
approx. $474.35 for 85 basic figures ($5.24 at Wal-Mart)
approx. $46.82 for 4 deluxe figures
approx. $23.41 for the small vehicles (BARC, Boga)
approx. $31.94 for the ARC-170

Grand total = $576.52

Of course, it will be more if they have the Mustafar playset or other stuff...   :(
Or, it could be less (by about $25) if I get the Target coupon...  :)

"If you do not wish to receive it, you are encouraged to stop using it and notify me such so I may remove your accounts."

I'm now taking every post RS makes about that thing with extreme skepticism. They don't seem to know anything about it, and are just posting whatever random thing someone writes into them with.

Ding ding ding!  I concur fully.

Every post they have about it is different - I think they are talking out of their ass on this one.

Can anyone confirm if the coupon showed up in the Target weekly ad?

All signs from Target point to there being NO coupon in any newspaper ad.  I'm not sure where all these "coupon in the newspaper ad" ideas came from...

All my Target sources say the coupon is a mail-offer only.

My sources could be wrong of course, but I've received NO concrete info on a newspaper ad coupon, except in the forums under "I've got a friend who knows a guy from Target who said blah blah blah."

Spent the afternoon at a bowling alley for 1 of the nephew's B-Day parties, so I had  alot of time to watch a few of the games today. 

Bemidji St. played a great game too bad they couldn't knock out Denver!  Great game between the Gophers and Maine, wasn't sure the Gophs could pull that one out, Hope they can make it past Cornell to see a showdown with ND!

And congrats to the Lady Gophers Ice TEam too - return to the National Championship game to try to defend their title!

Good day for MN Hockey!  Who needs the NHL, eh?

2x Clone Trooper to Sandtrooper (Pack 2) featuring Clone Trooper (Episode II), Clone Trooper (Episode III) and Sandtrooper (subject to change).

This could be one of the single most popular items in the modern line.

Wonder if "Sandtrooper" is a misprint for Stormtrooper though?

I thought that too, but maybe they are talking Ep3 clones with the pauldrons:
Ep2 SA Clone Trooper
Ep3 Clone Commander / ARC
Ep4 Sandtrooper
