Ok, I'm not sure if this is widespread, but it certainly had me wondering, and then Yakface

Star Wars product at Target?!
For the past month, I've noticed that my local Targets (3 of them) have had the same exact figures on the pegs. Week after week I would drop by, and shelves were not restocked. Which means that, week by week, there is less and less Star Wars presence.
Is this a cut-back in anticipation for the launch of TVC?? Is Target deliberately not ordering new cases of figures so that they don't have any leftovers by the time TVC is out? But that doesn't make sense either, becuase it's June, and they new line isn't set to launch till late July/early August.
If anyone's seen anything different or have had similar occurences, please post them!
