Took a picture of the Target ad in the local paper today for those that didn't see it...

I'll get the clone set. Pass on Grievous. Haven't decided on Obi-Wan.

I recommend all the collectors cups because the OB1 is very well done as is the clonetrooper, and GG he is okay and I still like it

Target cup sets were hit or miss around these parts, but the Micro Assortments were plentiful...

I happily grabbed my 3 sets - I like the Clone Cup set the best because he was one re-packaged figure that I didn't mind buying!    ;)

I've been wondering if anyone came across those Micro Sets.  Did you grab those too Jeff?

All-in-all - I would have to say that of all four chains that had exclusives, I am the MOST pleased with Target.

TRU botched their Holo Yoda (granted I got one, but A LOT of people ended up pissed on Friday night)

KB Toys had me buying the EXACT SAME 12" scaled Chewie figure only in different packaging!

WalMart gave us a box of air and the Darth Vader carrying case - AGAIN...

Target on the other hand had the Lava Reflection Vader - which was in plentiful supply (everyone who lined up got one) and they had cup w/figure sets (all three cups are great IMHO) and the micro vehicles (which I passed on, but at least it was something DIFFERENT).

Target also went the extra mile with that $1 coupon that we got in the mail - it brought down figures to $4.99 and I was able to get the cups for $8.99 - not too shabby either.

Agree with you totally on Target having the best roll-out my man!

I loved the gift card!  That was rerally neat, and very well done.  Lave Vader was very nice.  The figs/cup sets are great, and they didn;t last but a few min. at my Target.

Hiya bob...
  Nice spending the time with you in front of TARGET sat morn.. (in the rain - LOL)...

For the rest of the JD clan, the LavaVader is available right this second online
with an estimated delivery of this weekend...

http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-1/qid=/ref=sr_1_1/602-6629210-3530261?%5Fencoding=UTF8&asin=B0007XATUQ

p.s. you have to turn on "1-click order processing" before you'll be able to get
thru checkout without the LavaVader vanishing from your cart.  Turn on 1-click,
then keep refreshing the above page until you see the "Buy with 1-click" button...

THEN PRESS IT QUICK ! ;D

Galactic Hunter has some pics up of another Target exclusive, this time a Clonetrooper with red markings.  Apparently, it has been found at a store in CA, with a retail price of $12.99.  Although the price is a bit steep, it sure looks neat.  I didn't ever see the Lava Vader, and didn't want it really anyways, but I sure hope I can come across one of these.

I like this clonetrooper much better than the 12 inch offering.  I just wish it was not $12.99 again.  Man.

Coolness!  If they continue this all summer I'll be very happy.  Lava Vader wasn't all that intriguing even though I got one, this on the other hand is super cool.  I'm hoping they keep going with the other Red/Green/Blue etc decoed CLonetroopers

If anyone out there can hook me up with two it would be much appreciated.  Closest Target to me is over 1.5 hours away >:(  I've been getting hosed on Target exclusives for years now.
