Is everyone seeing last years's Order 66 packs mixed in with the new ones? I see them at every store that has these out. Sometimes its only the old ones that are available.

I haven't myself, but I have friends who say they have. One even found the airborne trooper.

Wait are we talking people are bring back the old set or swapping out figures from the old sets into the new ones? Either way, kinda pathetic.
Sales staff should be educated on the old sets or swapping figures and just simply not allow their return. This product is over a year old-not allowed to be returned. Then again Target made it possible for this by NOT changing the DCPI, IIRC.

My local Target still has not put these out (nor have they put out their Joe and TF exclusives).  They have them in the back, but they aren't willing to sell them for some reason.  Say what you want about Wal-Mart's exclusive availability and distribution, but at least they're willing to participate in standard retail actions like, you know, selling items to customers when they're in stock.   ::)

I here you on that DoctorPadawan,
                                              One Target I went to said they couldn't put them out until the sold through on the other target exclusives they had on the shelf. (FU Battlepack, Starfigher and GH Packs).  One store put them out weeks before the "release date" and sold out while another put out the G.I Joe and held the Order 66 until last Sunday.  I lucked out and found them all.

We are talking about people bringing back old sets to exchange for the newer ones. I havn't seen the figures being swapped out yet. (old figures, new boxes) It's a little hard to swap these figures with the tube packaging.

Ok that's just not right.  I'd go to talk to management and point out the "street date"  I still have a Target or two where I live who are reluctant to put the endcap up, but there's plenty of other stores that have them well stocked up front.

I'm in the DC area for training and to see my folks and I went to the Target by their house. This store too hasn't put out the Order 66 stuff or the GI Joe exclusives or the Transformers. I found this very odd.

Maybe they 'fell' off the truck.

No, they have them, sorry, I forgot to mention that I ran the DPCI #s for all three and they are in-stock in the back.

Looks like these are becoming peg sitters real fast, the only one I do not see now is Tsui.

I noticed our local store has these all moved to the normal Star Wars section in the action figure aisle.  There seems to be a good amount of them there, but I didn't look specifically which ones they had.  Once it gets closer to clearance time, I'll take a closer look.  I didn't see that any of the Joe vehicles made it back to the regular aisle (must have sold out), and there were just a few of the Transformers.

Not in Pittsburgh. Granted I've only been to two locally to check on these. Seen them once and that was it.

Chicagoland Order 66 is not in abundence. The only ones that seem to hang around long are Luminaria sets and Palps. The rest seem to be hit or miss depending on the store. Joe vehicles are sold out everywhere here. i am glad I stocked up, better value than SW.

Transformers seem to be the cancer of the exclusives. They are rotting in overstocked piles.....

Should we be a little surprised? After all, Transformers were all the rage for a while there. Or are theses just repacks?
