It makes sense for the contest to only be open to people who bought them during that one week, but not that the items would only be available for 7 days.  I mean, what are they going to do after 7 days if they haven't all sold?

I hope this is true, but you never know. Theoretically, they could pull the stock off the shelf and return them to be destroyed. Doesn't make sense, but it happens.

Hmmm... I'm thinking they'll be on shelves until they sell out.  A $50.00 toy that so many people are looking forward to doesn't seem to be something that they would destroy overstock on...

I think the Hoth sets will sell a lot faster than the Endor sets.  I will try and get at least one Hoth set, perhaps two.  Then the Endor set, I doubt I'll get. But we'll see I suppose.  Black Friday... I hate you.

I'd guess that too - I'm buying a Hoth set if I see one, Endor I could care less.

I'm hoping for a really good buy-one-get-one-half-off or a buy-two-get-one-free deal on TAC figures.  I'm itching to further army build some Stormtroopers, DS Troopers, jawas and a couple others.

Of course I am! I think it's always worth the insanity, especially if I can get the Hoth packs and a tiny chance to have a Robo-Quack action figure!  ;D

Once again, it is proven that living in MN must rule...  :D

I pretty much go to Target every year on Black Friday.  We usually get there within 30min of opening, and we usually never have any trouble buying what we want.  Maybe it's the fact that there are so many Targets that folks are more spread out or something.  Anyway, I'll be there to buy my ultimate battle packs, my cheap DVDs, and whatever other goodies they use to tempt me.

ditto  :)

I usually pre-plan my morning Target attack so I'm usually in and out within a matter of minutes.  I've never seen mobs of people hoarding anything and it's suprisingly calm for the most part.  I just haven't quite decided what to pick out from the endcap dealy.   :-\

Hmm... get up early and brave the crowds to buy toys or get up early and drive to a college football game with friends...

It's a no brainer here folks.

Agreed.

Hopefully your friends will find it in their hearts to forgive you.

One would hope and think. I'm just speaking in the hypothetical here, but these things probably cost very little to produce so there's probably not much of a loss if Target tries to pull them off the shelf after a week, especially if they sell X amount of units. But you're right, probably won't happen.

I'm not counting on them being pulled...  I would think that, simply, the contest itself is for a limited time or some such, while the toys will be out there...  Perhaps clearanced quickly, but out there.

Found out some interesting things about exclusives too, and Target "holding back".  Apparantly we're in for a lot of exclusives in a short time.  :-\

I would be all over that - I wonder if they'll actually hit clearance though?  Last year I was thinking the Shuttles in my area would, but they never did.  They sold out too fast - and this was with having close to 10 Targets in the area.  I'd say they were all gone by mid December.

As I recall, a couple targets by us let the shuttle hit clearance, but they didn't last more than a few hours on clearance.

Yeah, I remember hearing reports of the shuttle being found for as little as $15.00... I never saw one on clearance though.  I bought two at full price.
