« on: October 6, 2023, 01:10 PM »
Looking through some stuff today and realized that we never started a thread for these when they were pipeline revealed at SDCC 2023.   Target exclusive, due in 2024.

- Qui-Gon Jinn
- Obi-Wan Kenobi
- Darth Maul
- Battle Droid
- Jar Jar Biunks
- Queen Amidala

I don't buy much stuff anymore, but I am all in on a vintage style Qui-Gon and Jar-Jar.

When these were originally announced, Hasbro said they were a Target exclusive, but now it looks like a 6-pack box set and no mention of Target here in the story. Curious...

STAR WARS: RETRO COLLECTION STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE MULTIPACK
(HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $59.99/Available: Spring 2024)

Jedis Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi discover Anakin Skywalker, a young child unusually strong with the Force, while dealing with a massive invasion on Naboo and the re-emergence of the force of darkness known as the Sith. Inspired by the original 1970s Kenner STAR WARS action figures, this STAR WARS: RETRO COLLECTION STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE MULTIPACK features premium design and five points of articulation across all figures. These 3.75-inch-scale figures are detailed to look like the Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, Queen Amidala, Darth Maul, Jar Jar Binks and battle droid characters as they appeared in STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE. These figures feature classic Kenner branding, as well as packaging treated with a weathered look. Imagine the excitement of the 70s when the STAR WARS original trilogy had just begun. Includes 6 figures and 5 accessories.

I'm really liking these. I wonder if the Battle Droid will ever be available separately. I wouldn't mind having a couple of those.
don't you know there ain't no devil, there's just God when he's drunk

Sounds like the TPM 6-pack is making its way into the backrooms of Target stores this week.

Not sure but I did just nab one at the store, thanks for the code Jeff


They have a $5 off $30 worth of toys right now, so it was $55.

If anyone is still looking for these (my area has yet to receive any...) they are now available online.
