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.

General theory about modern toys:  nothing is rare. 

Waiting will benefit you 99 times out of 100.  You'll still spend less when that one item goes through the roof.  If it made it to target, it'll be half its retail price on ebay within 2 years. ;)

Those are all good points except you are not taking into consideration the "my impatience" aspect of things.  :-\

I was excited to find new joe muggs. Destro and Baroness. Most sites have these coming out in march so i was surprised  to find them yesterday. The destro is really cool. His head is a refective mirror like as well as his package. kind of like the sdcc muggs except only the parts with his face.

Bossk was the only new sw mugg i found. i could tell the other muggs he shipped with were rex, and c-3po since they have that only at target sticker.

The pics of Satipo were AWESOME. That could've been one of the best Muggs ever. :-\

Saw a snowtrooper yesterday and was almost tempted by this line, but I resisted.

Per EE the Wampa, Wicket, Imperial Guard and Qui-Gon wave is going to be a shared exlusive.

David, I had the same reaction, I think its like Jumbo shrimp.

I'm hoping the apparently Target only wave we've just started to see, and this wave which I guess will only be available at a few internet retailers, are the only two exclusive waves.  I'm really hoping that one whole wave isn't exclusive to Walmart, and another to TRU, etc.  If they are going to do that, they should just make the waves exclusive to eBay.... :P

After making a few phone calls I was able track this wave down at a Target I don't usually go to. Picked up Bossk (cute beyond all reason), Shocktrooper, and Snowtrooper. ;D The other two (Biggs Darklighter and Teebo) will have to wait since I'm kinda poor at the moment.

I noticed that the back of the box shows pictures of Wicket (part of that Entertainment Earth wave), Old Obi-Wan, and an awesome looking Jabba's Pig Guard. I have never heard anywhere that those two will be released. I really think this should be cleared up in the Q&A session with Hasbro, because between waves of online 'shared' exclusives and random Target exclusives showing up out of nowhere with these new pics on the back of the boxes, this line's getting a little confusing. ???

Just a heads up, the TPC $8.99 ends when Targets close on Monday.
