Ahhh, thanks for the info Jeff.  I think I might have to order them, or check Toy Tokyo in Manhattan one day.

No news on these at all?
We need more of these!

Star Wars Magnetic Helmets

At my local Target I noticed Star Wars magnetic helmets by the sports card display. $4 for a "pack" with one of 34 random helmets inside. You can feel the package and probably tell what you are getting. I was tempted to buy one, but decided to pass.

No they are "3D". Maybe one square inch-ish.

From what I've been reading, these are the same magnets as the Kotobukiya helmets from the last couple years.  I have the Vader one and it's done very well.

Yep, I just took a look at these at my local Target and they're the same deal. Distributed in the US by Artbox.

After drooling over these for years without pulling the trigger I went to Target today and bought a full box of 24...with the thought that there are 24 in a case and 24 different magnets, there wouldn't be any doubles.  If I started pulling dupes I could just return some

After opening a few I realized that the 24 in a box 24 different magnets was correct...also lucky that nobody else had bought them.  It looks like it is Series 1, 2 and 4:



Darth Vader
Stormtrooper
TIE Fighter Pilot
Tusken Raider
Jawa
C-3PO
R2-D2
Boba Fett
Yoda
Chewbacca
Darth Maul
Clone Trooper
Greedo
Emperors Royal Guard
Scout Trooper
Boushh
Vader w/ Removable Helmet
AT-AT Driver
Luke X-Wing
IG-88
Nein Nunb
Zuckuss
Cantina Band Member
Admiral Ackbar

I also had a $20 gift card...so for 24 Magnets I paid a grand total of $76.  Patience wins (for once)!

Nice score Scotty!  How many different series are there?  I'd be tempted to bite, but I'd want a complete collection if I did.
