Well, while it sucks, tha April 10 makes sense for TRU. Regardless of an exclusive, I'll spend a bundle at TRU at MM. Now, with Yoda hitting April 10, I HAVE TO go back to TRU and sepnd 25 bucks. It's really quite genius. Well, I'll save a ship or two for April 10!
On paper it is - but there are loop-holes. I'll just save some of my receipts from April 2nd from TRU and then when I find the Holo Yoda, I'll buy what I need to get the item and then I'll use my receipts from April 2nd to return that merchandise.
It's a dirty trick, but I'm not going to wait until April 2nd to buy stuff HOPING that (a) product will still be there and (b) the product that is there will be in good shape.
Since they are doing it like this, I partly believe that like the previous Silver figures, you will be able to buy the Holo Yoda for $9.99 and save yourself the hassle of the $25 of merchandise.
