There is a spot on the bottom shelf at a couple of Targets in MN now. SW is the last thing in the aisle now too instead of the first.

You mean there is a dedicated location with a price tag for these in the shelves?  I sure hope so.  I checked Target.com and didn't see these available anymore.   :-X

Yes. There is a label for $39.99 (they didn't raise the price) for the Rancor from the way I'm hearing it. Haven't heard anyone actually see the toy itself yet though.

Oh wow $40 for the Rancor?  That will be hitting the clearance aisle for sure.

We'll see.  Seems like a lot more people are interested in this one than the TFU version.

Yeah, definitely...   I just picked one up at my local Target store tonight!

I had to use the DPCI trick to get it out of the backroom, but they are definitely in some stores now!  Look for them to be all over the USA very soon!  :)

Good news...

The RC Droids were at my store tonight but in the back so I didn't ask.  I've gotta be vigilant for those and the Rancor now though I guess.

I picked up Jeff's remnants this morning out of that case.  The Rancor looks very nice even though the paint is pretty glossy on my sample, but he surpasses the FU version by lightyears I guess so it's all good.  I still find it amazing that Target didn't bump the price on this thing to $44.99 or whatever.

I'm hoping the glossiness isn't a wide thing...  I really don't like an overly glossy paintjob.  There's a remedy to it I may try, but on something that pricey I'll be reluctant to.

I've been looking but nothing in Pittsburgh yet for this, the RC droids...  Or even Legacy Wave 6 for that matter, still.  :)

All of these I've seen so far have the glossy paint, but overall very cool.

FYI -The one I got 4 months ago on Target.com has a flat paint job not glossy.

I got mine tonight...  He's all glossy, like he's sweating or something.  Maybe it's just humid down in that dank hall.

Could be from all that time waiting it out at Target distribution centers.   :D   I'd prefer a muted version myself, but all I'm seeing are glossy versions in stores.

There's a good "clear coat" modelers use that could flatten out the deco significantly, but I'm not sure if I'm going to bother.  The Rancor has some sheen to him in the movie, but not as much as the toy ultimately has is all.  I'm pretty sure I'll just deal with him as he is.

Same here.  I ordered one from Target.com when they were first available, and I don't notice a glossy finish either.

Not only glossy- but sticky too!  There is definitely a tackiness associated with it (no jokes, please  :-*)
