Wow.  I barely saw any of these in the stores. 

Was Hasbro's production run that small, or did they ship them all to eastern Europe to be clearanced?

I wonder if the same thing is going to happen to the TBS figures.  I don't think I've seen anything new since October.

Yeah, I find the early Target clearance to be an interesting move for a number of reasons. Were there that few made or did the time just run out on these with the coming Sept relaunch? How long until Walmart and TRU follow suit? Will we ever see these show up at places like 5 Below or TJ MAXX?

It certainly was a brief window where these things hit. I'm sure they will re-pack most of the Rebels figures in future waves, but I can definitely see some guys like the Jedi Temple Guard falling off the radar for awhile.

Both.  Lots of reports that Hasbro is "sold out" on these cases due to small production runs.  If Target can't get any more product from Hasbro and has nothing left in their DC, they're not going to sit on empty pegs until Ep7.  It becomes time to clearance and use the space for something else.

TBS has more waves coming (at least one, potentially two assuming Wave 8 isn't cancelled) so in theory, it should be safe from clearance...  for now.

Picked up a Bespin Han at Target for $1.94 cause why not, eh?

Doesn't quite beat the $1.00 Clone Wars figures I found at one point on a Walmart clearance aisle, but it's pretty good.
