I've been to four Targets since yesterday and no sign of it.  Also, no signs of the RC droids or shelf tags for either.

That's weird. You'd think all Targets would want the new set up so they could sell the new Transformer toys.

Yeah, the resets have been weird. At least one of my Targets hasn't even put out the new Transformers toys yet, let alone the RC SW stuff.

These were already $5 off at my local Target.  Already a pricecut, go figure.

You mean they were $40 or $35?

it's a shame this item got the hiatus shaft for whatever reason for so long. Hopefullu this will not discourage Target from items like this, it sounds like it was their fault.

With the revelation of the new Gammorean that Rancor grip will come in handy for the fat round pig guard.

Finally found it.  I walked into a Target this morning and conveniently there was one dull and one shiny sitting on the shelf.

I went with the shiny version.

I'm seeing these mroe now, and I'm seeing an even mix of the dull paintjob, and the shiney paintjob.  I'm standing by the shiney one as the more accurate version.  The duller one is heavy on that white wash, and really almost looks like a completely different animal because of it.  It's pretty heavy on some of them at least.

I'd like a little less sheen to the glossier one, but it looks sharp regardless and really is a nice item.

Does anyone have a Target that never put these out?  The RC Droids were never put out at my local Target either ???

Y'know, here's a case of too much.  I passed on this, only because I just bought the Felucia one a while ago.  While it's a great sculpt, I just don't need another right now.

I think the my Champlin Target is like this. I don't believe I've seen the Rancor or RC Droids there either.

The only Target in my area that got both of them was a newer one that opened in March. The other two appear to have not restocked any toys since Christmas.

There are 10 Targets that I've been to over the last 6 weeks.  Exactly two of them got RC Droids (they're already marked down in one of them) and only about half of them (I think that's generous) ever put out Rancors.

The price has been raised to $49.99, making it a definite pass until clearance time.
