I love that this is just $20.  Well done Hasbro.

I found the game on the shelf amongst the other board games at Target this morning. Shelf tag with 6 games lined up just like they were supposed to be there.

Happy to have a Retro Tarkin of course, but also looking forward to teaching the game to my 9 year old, he is in his "board game stage" right now.

I went by Target yesterday and no luck.  Hopefully, they're just waiting for the street date.

Celebrated May the 4th last night by watching "Star Wars" (you know the one) with my boys, and then playing "Escape the Death Star" with my oldest after his brother went to bed.

Big thumbs up on the gameplay from the kid. After my Han/Chewie piece got dragged back to the Trash Compactor (from the space just in front of the Millennium Falcon) he couldn't stop laughing and finally said: "This is the best board game I have ever played!"

I don't know whether I should be looking in toys, games, or the men's department, because I have heard of these being put in all 3 places. Not having any luck on this and Target is dead to Brickseek now I guess.

I got tired of looking for it and ordered it from Target.com.  Free shipping and 5% off with a Red Card.  Mine is arriving today.

Question:  Does the Tarkin come on a retro card with the game or is he also being released in the Retro Vintage collection?

Picked this up today. It was on the bottom shelf in the game area.

One of these was floating about today in the board game aisle so I grabbed it and itís very cool.  Itís simply sculpted and fits in perfectly with my original figures.  The simplicity of the sculpt is enough to set it off from other imperial figures but to where you get the idea of who it is supposed to be.  Iíd love more unmade figures to fill out my Vintage figure shelf.  Itís not everyoneís cup of tea but Iíd love a Fleet Trooper, a Wedge, Evazan, cantina band guy, Sandtrooper, maybe some others.

Not sure Iíd want it to go too far like into PT or ST characters, but more originals Iím all for.

None of the Targets I went to yesterday had this, the retro figs or 6" Luke. Crappiest launch ever.

I've said it before and I will say it again, street dates only help scalpers. If they had just put these out as they arrived in stock I would have had one by now.

I struck out at two Targets for everything. Kind of figured this would be a debacle like the Gammorean Guard.

Apparently the street date had nothing to do with them being put out...  now that makes zero sense to me of course, but yeah the street date has 0 to do with them being put out for a fathwrís Day gift thing in menís clothing...  Iím kind of boggled why theyíd set a date and not have that date coincide with the reset but apparently thatís the case. 

In my industry thatís never the case and dated materials are dated for the exact day of resets in stores nationwide, but itís not collectibles haha.

A Target set date of 5/12 would typically mean set the week of 5/12. So they have 5 days still with my math.
