As I recall some hit the stores when C-3PO was released before they sent out pre-orders, so hopefully they'll fulfill soon.  But I'm in the same boat as you and concerned about Target fulfilling these pre-orders.

They've stiffed me in the past couple years on some main line pre-orders, but have never failed to delivery on Target exclusive pre-orders.  Let's hope these come through shortly.

Here in Chicagoland, Targets are getting R2 and Boba in but they are staying in the back until a March 22nd set date as explained to me at one store. I was fortunate enough to get one of each pulled from the back. Just have those DPCIs (below) ready and be nice to the employees. Note that some  stores arenít expecting to receive their shipments until the 11th.

R2: 087-16-5954
Boba: 087-16-7223

6Ē Boba is not showing up as far as I am aware.

I spotted at least 10 Droids 3POs at a Walmart yesterday afternoon. This was near St. Louis. ???

Just got in a preorder for the 3.75Ē Fett on the Target app just now. R2 still sold out. Says Fett will ship by the 26th so I guess thatís the release date.

Okay.  That's on the other side of the city for me.  Thought it'd be interesting to see if it were nearby.

Target just sent me an email letting me know my preorders for R2 and Boba have a new release date of May 26th.  Hopefully that means they're going to be fulfilled around then.

It's good to finally get some communications from Target about these, but I feel like that only happened because of so many collectors venting on social media.  The preorders should have gotten fulfilled before these started landing in stores.  Especially since they were ordered over 7 months ago.

I was happy to get the email too because it has been so long I couldnít even remember if I had successfully preordered these or not. Now whatís up with the 6Ē Boba?

Estimated to arrive 1 Jun.  This is really cutting it close for me and the move!   :o

How far away from the current digs are you moving?

My order is showing a June 2nd delivery date.  It's good to at least know that much.  But like McMetal said, what about the 6" Boba Fett?  This situation is just ridiculous.

Moving from Colorado Springs to Merritt Island, Florida.

On an unrelated note, anyone know where I can get a Star Wars themed boat?   ;D
