I am not surprised by that at all.  My local Targets have mounds of these guys, both styles. ::)

I just care about the metal Ig-88 - only one so far that makes sense!

Actually, Grievous, C-3PO & Battlestar Galactica Cylon (which are rumored to be released during this year) make sense as well (at least to me they do).  With regards to the IG-88, I'm more curious as to how they are going to do a "painted" version and a "patina" version, when the character is a gray/silver metal droid. I guess they'll do like what they did with Bossk and the Sandtrooper - make the base the patina silver color instead of being painted.

I doubt Target is dropping the line, they have the Lava Reflection Titanium Vader coming soon ($14.99)

I just saw pictures of the Titanium 501st Clone Trooper and IG-88 over at entertainmentearth.com :

Man, I've been avoiding these, but IG-88 just might be the first one I buy.  Finally a metal figure that makes sense.



I hope the C-3PO that they are planning turns out as nice as this one!

I'll be catching that 501st figure if it's ever on clearance. I just love the 501st, and that figure looks so awesome! But my budget is devoted to strictly 3 3/4 figures, so like I said, if I ever buy this, it will be on clearance.

I don't know if anyone even cares about these anymore, but I've heard from a few JD readers that the Target Exclusive Mustafar Darth Vader figure (DPCI# 087-06-1800) has started hitting Targets on the West Coast...

Yeah Jeff, they're hitting on the east coast as well.  Target had four of them on the shelves today when I went in.  Considering Target usually stocks in the mornings, that doesn't bode well for these, I think.  Add to that the fact that the figure isn't even really all that red (he's still more black than anything else), and I think this one has clearance written all over it.

I'm sort of regretting getting the first four (well, everyone except Fett) because I'd be willing to bet that these figures will be next on the chopping block after the Ultra vehicles.  My WMs are sitting on a mountain of Fetts and Vaders, and their uber-late shipments of the Sandtrooper and Bossk are starting to pile up too.  With the glut of waves one and two, the IG-88 and Clone haven't and probably won't show up anytime soon.  With Hasbro packing in Vader and Fett in some of those assortments (ooooh, new less interesting boxes, they'll be sure to sell!  ::) ), the future does not bode well for Grievous, Threepio, R2-D2, and the rest of the lineup they showed at SDCC.

I want Bossk badly in my character-focus-collection...  anyone sees him cheap, I'm your guy! :)  I have a real hard time justifying $15 for these though when I see them.  I too may try getting IG-88 and other droids, but that's about it.

I bought the blue clone, but haven't cracked it open yet. The big hold is the while polka-dots. I'm not that fussy, but these things are very distracting and borderline kill the figure.

Yeah the $15 pricetag about kills it for me really.  I would not mind if a few of these were in my collection.  However, I would rather put the $15 towards something else in the end. But yeah, IG-88 is the one I would go for.

I've read the regular Titanium figures retail for $15 in the US, but how about the Target Vader one?  Since it's an exclusive, have they bumped the price on it at all?

I'm pretty sure it is still $15, I didn't bother picking it up so I'm not 100% sure though.

I have not scaned it since it looks like **** but it sits next to the other titanium figures collecting dust around here so my guess is 14.99.  This particular Vader must be the enema variant since he has a nice prostate exam stance. ::)
