Target Black Series 6" FO Riot Stormtrooper and Poe
« on: September 16, 2015, 10:29 AM »
Another exlusive!  I guess we missed this one somewhere along the way.

Exclusive to Argos in the UK and rumored to be exclusive to Target in the USA, it's a 2-pack with a 6" First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper and 6" Poe Dameron in his regular gear (with white helmet).

Yeah just today I think.  No word on the DPCI yet, but I will repost it here when they get to it.

I merged your post with mine from back in September, Justin.  The set was rumored to be coming to Target for a long time.

Here is the DPCI from August: 087-06-3696 Star Wars SW E7 Black Srs Fig 2 $39.99

According to brickpicker, there are a bunch of stores in the metro that are starting to get cases...

Is this supposed to go on the "Christmas Exclusive" endcap with the Avengers and WWE Four Horsemen sets like the Shadow Troopers last year?

If you're having trouble finding this set, don't worry.  It's actually supposed to go out on November 1st.

I nabbed a few of these at Target this morning using the DPCI mind trick.  No hassle getting them brought out, but the guy took the rest back to the stock room without even looking for a shelf location.  I think they are intended for some kind of upcoming display like Nick said - probably based on the Target Wish List items that were posted a few days ago.

I thought it was later in the month?  The pre-Black Friday catalog says available 11/15.

There is a shipper/end cap display that will hold them. I caught a brief glimpse of it last night but before I could snap a pic, a red shirt whisked it away off the sales floor.

My info came from a source who is employed at Target.

I think Jeff's point is that the printed source material in the link provided specifically calls out that item as "Available 11/15."  Obviously they are already in the inventory at a lot of stores and there will probably be some variation in when stores actually get them on the shelves, but I would trust the printed date of 11/15 over random red shirt guy if you're planning on a date to go look for these.

Found this set today (Oct. 30) while shopping at Target this morning.  Almost overlooked it as I was looking for the single-packed 6" figures and the set was hanging below the one Finn figure from the first TFA wave.  It was not part of any display, just hanging with all the other items.  At first, I got a bit of sticker shock, but then $39.99 is about the price of two of the single-boxed figures (and this set has two figures) so it made sense. 

The Poe Dameron figure is nice whereas the Stormtrooper is the same as the single version, just with a couple extra accessories.  I can't help thinking the Stormtrooper with riot gear looks like one of those "Peacekeepers" from the Hunger Games books and films :)

I ordered mine from Target.com. Free shipping was standard, but I got $10 off with BESTGIFT promoted.
