I wish I knew how limited the "only at Target" MMs were going to be. I can't decide if I should buy all five of the new ones or not and I'd like to know how much time I have to make that decision.

I was looking at the Solar Sailor set at TRU yesterday and I have to say it was very disappointing. Not sure how they could have improved it, but.....

I bought the Teebo, Bossk, and Snowtrooper this morning. All with "only at Target" stickers.

I left the Biggs and Shocktrooper also with "only at Target" stickers.

And they had Rex, C3PO, and Cody with "only at Target" stickers even though they have been released before. I compared the "new" Rex with the old one and it looked like it had very small paint variations.

Thanks Jayson.

That figures that the case that is hitting around here has to be the one without the fig I really want. Oh well.

I was in two Targets this morning, one right as it opened, the other within 20 minutes of it opening and they had clearly both received the "new" Legends this morning as they had none yesterday. No sign of the Snowtrooper though. Has anyone heard anything about anyone actually finding the Snowtrooper? Could it not be in the newest case even though its pictured and numbered in the middle of all the stuff that is in stores now.

I'm sure what you are saying is right. But I also don't think Grandma is going to just do a drive by shopping, not see Drath Vaber and make a run for the door. She is going to have to look through the figs for a longer period of time anyway.

And by the way does anyone know where you can pick up a Drath Vaber figure? I still don't have one and he probably is my favorite character. I bet he's been in stores on the pegs but after thumbing through so many figs for so long I just gave up. I bet I'll be able to find him easier in the new packaging. j/k  ;)

  So something else about the package has got to make them want to look at them.


Maybe the big honkin red Star Wars logo will do the trick, no?

Good call (and it made me laugh). The more I look at the new package, the more I like it. I like the attention on the picture being given to the specific character and not something generic. I'm not discussing this as far a overall sales here, but just what I am going to enjoy having in my collection.

So, I stumbled on these things in the isle at Target last night.  Hadn't heard of them before.  The figures are attached to those bases and appear not to have any articulation.  The bases are some type of play-doh stamp.  Each has, I think, a personalized emblem - like for pressing a wax seal.



Also, my target had reset its toy aisles, but a couple sections, including Star Wars, were starkly barren.  I might need to stalk it, as these first GH waves of the year always seem to pull a vanishing act.  Random note: some type of gaming cartoon called Bakugan (from Nelvana) had a humongous shelf allotment, fwiw.



Were those the only 2 style of the Playdoh/GH sets that you saw? How much were they?

Hasbro will own the action figure aisle this year.  They're getting their money one way or the other, plus THIS IS Star Wars.  It will sell no matter the competition within its own lines.

Very nicely put!!!!!

I don't remember saying you weren't qualified to say what you thought. I just think that having a big picture of Vader's head as opposed to the specific character isn't going to determine sales on them. I will admit that none of the economics courses I took to get my economics degree had formulas that stated whether Vader's helmet or Maul's head had an outcome on overall profit but this is just my opinion. ;)

As Keonobi said it was horrible to look through Indy stuff because you had no choice and with the new SW card you can just quickly glance the side. I like that.

I think this new design looks like butt.

It's too simple and doesn't scream Star Wars.

It looks like a simple box.

I never was a carded collector, and this new design doesn't make me want to start either.

How should it "scream" Star Wars more than having it say "Star Wars" and have a large picture of the character?

Just wanted to say that I think you are right on Jesse James with your last post. When you let a selfish ego maniac do whatever he wants he is going to rip your team apart. It's a lot more the organization's fault than it is the media.

Any chance anyone out there happens to still have a receipt with or just knows the Target DPCI # for the Star Destroyer?
