Target Exclusive Clone Trooper
« on: March 15, 2005, 09:38 AM »
Rebelscum has a report up detailing a number of possible Target store exclusives (outside of the red, metallic, lava Vader).  Here's what is rumored:

Due on April 2nd:

087-06-0937 - Figures with Cups
087-06-1262 - Micro Vehicles
087-06-0311 - Collector Edition Darth Vader with Laval Reflection Figure

Due on May 8th:

087-06-1489 - Collector Edition Stormtrooper/SW Articulated Super Clone Trooper
087-06-1490 - 5-pack Collector Cases

Some of these sound quite cool, and I'm personally happy there might be more figure/cup combos...for the cups anyways :).  Collector edition Stormtrooper/Clonetrooper sounds cool too.  Also, anyone have further info on the 5 pack collector cases?  I thought I heard these rumored awhile back as well.

Wow.  Target is snatching up the exclusives.  Gonna battle that evil Wal-Mart for the SW merch.

Well, these we alreay knew about...
087-06-1262 - Micro Vehicles
087-06-0311 - Collector Edition Darth Vader with Laval Reflection Figure


As for these...

087-06-0937 - Figures with Cups

This is the same DPCI that the Saga Figure with Cups had.   :-\  I don't know if this means we'll finally see the cancelled Wave 2 - Han, Yoda, Boba Fett or will it just be left-overs from the Saga stuff?


087-06-1489 - Collector Edition Stormtrooper/SW Articulated Super Clone Trooper
087-06-1490 - 5-pack Collector Cases

I haven't heard anything other than rumors at this point abotu the other two items.  Nice to see that DPCI #s have turned up, that kind of helps to confirm the rumors that they are coming.

Have to go digging to the Target contacts and see what I can find...

These Stormtrooper/Clonetrooper things sounds cool... but something tells me these won't be OT styled Stormies, but ROTS ones (which is ok).

Wonder what these 5-pks will be... hope not stupid rehashes (unless they are good army-builders).

Hopefully the 5 packs are somthing decent, and not silly repacks. Heck, maybe they will be like the TRU 4 packs. If they are around the same price, I may gladly shell out for that. If it's decent army builders, I will shell out for those too. Hey Hasbro, Episode 1 Battle Droids, hint hint? I'd like to aquire a set of the glasses at one point, for my future apartment.

Hmmm... Battle Droids... I would go for a 5-pk with 5 Battle Droids, preferrably the POTJ Security Droid without the red markings.

In my experience though, Target Exclusives are usually hard to find!

The Micro Vehicles and Lava Vader don't do much for me. I'm withholding judgment on the Cup sets. But the 5-packs and Stormie/SA Clone packs sound promising. Though something tells me they'll be scarce--particularly if Target does something boneheaded like restricting the number per store (a la Lava Vader). ::)

Making army builders exclusive is a kick in the balls unless Target surprises everyone and actually makes these widely available.  It'd require incredible saturation to do that though, if these are any kind of super articulated figure.

I'll withold judgment, but something tells me this is a bad situation coming for any army builder.

Due on May 8th:

087-06-1489 - Collector Edition Stormtrooper/SW Articulated Super Clone Trooper
087-06-1490 - 5-pack Collector Cases

In light of recent developments ... how exactly does this fit with the 5-figure Battlepacks and the 3-pack Evolutions sets? Or are they all completely separate? ???

In this thread at the RS forums, someone has posted a pic, albeit very small, of the possible Target/Cup set due on 4/2.  Looks to be a Clonetrooper (#6) with Glass.  I'm always a fan of these glasses, although now I wish I would have gotten the Maul and Anakin cups to have the "complete" set :)

Interesting...

I've sent word to my Targt contacts, but have yet to receive any answers about what the deal is with the Cup Exclusive and any of the later exclusives.   :'(

I almost forgot about the 3 pack evolution sets...were not these supposed to be available this Sat.?

The five packs have potential if they consist of figures everybody wants...really this work well with the OT.

-Vader with 2 stormtroopers, Motti and Tarkin would be neat.

-Hoth Luke with Hoth Han, Leia, Chewie and Reiken.

-Obi Wan with 2 clonies, droid, and Anakin.

-Dooku with Jango, Sidious, & two battle/super droids.

Man, I wish I worked for Hasbro!

I think that the Evolution sets are coming later -

Got an e-mail tonight with a possible update:

Target RotS Figure w/Cup Sets

General Grievous w/Cup
Obi-Wan Kenobi w/Cup
Clone Trooper w/Cup

No pictures yet, nor do I have any idea which versions the figures are included or if they are re-packs...

Thanks for the info Jeff, I'm personally excited about more glass sets, although I know they aren't everyone's cup of tea.  Anyways, it looks like SirSteve's has some pics up confirming the first wave of Grievous, Obi, and the Clone.
