We know for certain that the Wedge X-Wing is a Target exclusive?  The packaged images didn't have any kind of an exclusive sticker.

I hate to be the nitpicker, but for the BAD series this year there are only 5 sets. I thought that was odd when it was announced at Toy Fair.

It is very likely based off the unique DPCI that has been floating around since February (087-06-0629) and the listing on Target.com  ;)

I knew about the DPCI.  I guess the exclusive tag on the Target.com listing is proof enough.  Thanks Jeff!

Man, I forgot a few of those. I am so glad I do not collect animated CW figures but I will be buying most of the exclusives that we know of on that list and multiples to of some. I am glad I been saving up.

I just wish they would spread this **** out more, I hate being starved then overfed. There is not time to enjoy some of this stuff as much as I would if it was spread out more.

I agree.  I don't like the feat or famine attitude.  Maybe someone can express how this cuases people to buy less, and mention it to Hasbro as the Q & A at Comicon.

I just saw this post and actually mentioned this, check it out in your thread. ?That's some funny timing as it was on my brain today.

It does seem like a lot, but I think you're right, it's no more than what we've been getting. I'm curious about what's in the works for Diamond or EE.

Just thinking about exclusives we've gotten in the last year or two, but anyone else feel that Walmart has gotten better exclusives than Target lately?  Walmart had the BAD sets (and the sequels this year), lots of cool comic packs (Keller/Marine, Ewoks, Rebel Pilots, Tank & Amanaman), the A-Wing, the Dewback, Evolutions sets, and probably a few more.
Target got the first O66 sets which were pretty popular, the second set which were less so, and now the Geonosis sets which seem to be getting a good response.  They had a wave of Mighty Muggs, they got the RC droids, the UBPs, the Rancor and they'll be getting the Wedge X-wing.
Maybe its based on what I bought (no Rancor or UBP, no RC droids yet, no A-Wing or unreleased sets obviously), but it seems Walmart has had better exclusives.  Even if their distribution made getting those items harder...

Then again if you were able to get all of the exclusives you might have liked Targets emphasis on higher end items better.

Interesting question. It's given me pause to think. It'll come down to personal preference ultimately, but you might be right.

Well, with the Dewback and the Octuparra droid, they have the best exclusives this year.   Eiher they get first choice because they are the #1 toy retailer, or they just know what people want.  The Wedge X-wing is gonna warm shleves like crazy.

Too bad Walmart doesn't actually stock their exclusives. Walmart exclusives are always extreemly rare around here. You never even see price stickers on the shelves.
