I actually spoke to the TL in toys at a Target earlier in the week and he said they had scheduled their reset for Sunday.  Another local store already has their toy aisle done, so maybe thats true with your store, but not others.

I've seen reports of Target reset dates before.  In those cases I've checked out some area stores and found mixed results.  Some stores reset on those reset dates and others do it within the next couple of days.  I think it varies store to store based on inventory, staffing, customer volume in the stores at given times, etc.

One of the local targets where I saw them doing a reset required a whole crew of laborers.  They were disassembling and rebuilding end caps with shelves.  Not just placing new things on shelves.

Nice, I was finally able to snag the Speeder Bike set at Target today. Nothing on the shelf but for a chance the little price scanner computer said Store Room: YES. I waited in line for the CS associate (hate the Targets where these double as checkouts now) and she was able to get one pulled from the back for me. Success!

Have not opened him yet but am already concerned about "Bent Visor-Gate", as mine seems to suffer from this new affliction.

Ok, visor was a little askew but was pliable enough to push back into shape. Scout does not seem to quite sit fully down on the bike.

And now that the silly minor quibbles are out of the way, what a refreshingly kick-ass toy! I LOVE this thing! At least the one I got has nice crisp paint apps on both the speeder and figure, including some really nicely detailed dirt wash on the boots that was hard to appreciate from just photos. For some reason earlier online comments had lead me to believe the rear spoilers were not articulated, but they are and it's a great added detail, along with the movable underbelly gun.

I haven't ventured to remove the Scout from the Speeder Bike yet, as I will probably pose him as is, but he sure looks like a fine effort to me. I know there was some grumbling about the torso proportions, but it doesn't seem look glaringly funky that I can tell.

Of course, liking this thing so much, it is probably going to be impossible to resist picking up another one at some point, space be damned. They just look better in 2-man teams!

Saw the 6" Jabba at Target last night. For $40 I am not impressed. He is nicely painted and detailed but just seems so lonely in that big box. I think at least the hooka and Crumb should have been included at that price. It's just too expensive for that it is. The only movement he has is you move his arm to make his mouth open. The thing is shaped, looks and priced like a turd. I'm sure they will be impossible to find since Target doesn't restock star wars anymore beyond initial resets.

Picked up the Biker Scout deluxe set today. It looks really sharp, and I'm genuinely impressed by how good it looks. As for unboxing it ?  That's probably going to have to wait a little while.

Not at all around here. In predictable Target fashion, they only bothered to order 1 measley case, and when that sold out right away they failed to order any more. No idea how long it will take them to eventually re-stock these.

1. Order product
2. Sell product
3. Order more product

It's not rocket science!  :D

I've only been able to get a few from stockroom locations, and it looks like most Targets have sold thru their one case.  I found one at TRU about a week ago, so might want to try there.  Of course it suffered from the bent visor issue, so I passed on it.

I've only seen it the one time when I scored mine.  And that was a couple of weeks ago.

I see them sporadically at Target and K-Mart...  Don't hit TRU much ever to really call it, but they had Jabbas I know last I was there.  I wasn't paying attention to what else though, just know Jabba was there.

I've seen a local Target restock these at least once since their reset.

The Speeder Bike has dropped to $42.99 (at least for now) on Amazon.  If you have Prime, it's a pretty good deal.
