Target 2023 TVC Deluxe Luke Skywalker & Grogu
« on: May 3, 2023, 12:45 PM »
Target exclusive...  pre-order scheduled for tomorrow, 5/4 at 1pm but we all know how that goes for Target pre-orders.

STAR WARS: THE VINTAGE COLLECTION LUKE SKYWALKER & GROGU
(HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $27.99 / Available: Fall 2023)
 
To help him hone his skills and understand the ways of the Force, Grogu trains with a new Jedi Master: Luke Skywalker. Fans can celebrate the legacy of STAR WARS, the action-and-adventure-packed space saga from a galaxy far, far away, with this premium 3.75-inch scale STAR WARS: THE VINTAGE COLLECTION LUKE SKYWALKER & GROGU two-pack inspired by STAR WARS: THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT live-action series. These figures feature premium detail and design across product and packaging inspired by the original Kenner line, as well as the entertainment-inspired collector grade deco. Includes 2 figures and 15 entertainment-inspired accessories including a training remote and two Lightsabers.  Available for pre-order 5/4 at 1 pm ET exclusively at Target.




I don't know about you all, but I will cancel my $17 basic carded TVC BOBF Luke pre-order the second I secure a Target pre-order for this set...

I had ordered 3 of the basic version of Jedi Academy Luke.  But with the announcement of this?  What I want changes since this set will satisfy my desire to get an opener.  Thankfully I was able to cancel my Amazon order for 3 and place another order for only 2.

I know prices have risen and this has been talked to death, but I still canít believe this is $28 plus tax and they couldnít even be bothered to fix his haircut for that price.

Grogu does not make this a 2-pack.  Heís a glorified accessory.

Totally absurd.

I get the frustration over the price.  I think the broader issue is that the TVC mainline figures are now $16.99 each.  That base price is a substantial factor in Hasbro setting this price.  So does Grogu, a backpack, 7 frogs, a stand, 2 x lightsaber hilts, 1 x lightsaber, the bundle and the chain mail shirt equal $11 in value?  I think relative to a world where the Luke figure costs $16.99 it does.

Super obnoxious.  I can't sit here all day for this and am definitely going to miss out on it when it does show up, after planning my morning around being ready at noon central.

What a role reversal, it used to be Walmart exclusives that were instantly frustrating for people.

Walmart will at least have the 30 second window for preorders start on time.  Then you have to wonder what condition it will show up in.

Target will also not protect your package...but who knows when the item will go up for presale.

One hour later.....I'm expecting it to show up anytime now.  They've done this before.  I don't think they follow Daylight Savings Time.
