I hope it's not a Black Friday thing cause I don't wanna venture out and try to find it in that mess.

The only reason I'm hoping so is for bragging rights.

I'm wondering how they're going to stock this thing if it is indeed a Black Friday Special.  I mean they can fit what, maybe 10-15 at the most on an endcap and this may become a highly sought after item that morning.  Maybe they could cake them all on the top shelf ala the Millenium Falcon TF?  That's probably not a good idea though as the box is too freaking huge.

In the past I have seem them stack Black Friday toys (non-SW) on the seasonal area where they just had the halloween display.

Look at it this way, if it's a BF item, you'll know exactly when (and where) it will be available. 

Beats running around town and/or running DCPI's every other day.

 :P

Edit:  And the only bragging that will be going on will be targeted towards Matt.

Just sold my SAGA shuttle on ebay in anticipation of this since it's the SAME thing, cost 1/2 the price AND has 2 figures!   Didn't get as much as I'd wanted but I'd already determined I was getting rid of it before news about the Target one came out-  I just waited too long.  Oh well... in the meantime, I have my vintage shuttle to keep me happy!

That's cool - I just don't have time these days to run around looking for figures.  It's a lot easier (and in the long run) cheaper to buy what I want online.

I used to enjoy finding figures on the pegs (it's a lot more exciting than getting a brown box left at the door) but between family, my commute to work and gas prices - things are too hectic.

With that said, even if I wanted a Shuttle, I think I'd resort to ebay and pay the premium price just to avoid the crowds and time it would take to nab one. 

Hell, you might be the first in line and still not get one.

In the end, I could give a **** less if it's a BF promo - it'd just be nice to prove Matt wrong for a change!

I just know that if it is a black friday promo, most people won't be able to get one early like with most Target product.

I hope it's NOT cause I'll be in Dallas on BF instead of home in VA....  it would suck to have to ship it from there..but I guess I could fit it in suitcase if I needed too  8)

No comment.



They pulled the shuttle from Target.com and my local store no longer has it in their system...  Looks like Hasbro's 'no comment' on the BF promo may be because there was never an intention for this to be out by then.  Or maybe even at all?

Thoughts?

I was thinking the same thing, but you know some people, they'll find a way.

I'm fed up with Hasbro's evasive answers about this item (see today's Yakface Q&A).  I recommend we all start emailing target directly to get some information.  Maybe someone will run into a customer service rep that does not know to keep 'mum' about it.

In the very least we can flood them with emails about our interest in this item and make sure this happens.

Be sure to include the dcpi # 087-06-0483

Hmmm.. Star Wars.com Databank entry for today is the Imperial "Lambda-class" Shuttle.... I wonder if there is a pending announcement from SW.com in the not so distant future.

I would think we'd be hearing something before too long, if it is in fact happening.  Hasbro does seem to be being quite coy about it, and still hasn't come out and said "no, its not happening", so that leads me to believe we're seeing it at some point.  Hopefully we'll get some announcement and details soon.
