I stopped by Target yesterday to check for the GH Jabba pack. Our store had reset their endcap, and it was set up like this:
Top Shelf - Miniatures Packs (plenty of 'em)
2nd Shelf - 1 X-Wing Galactic Heroes Pack
3rd Shelf - 1 AT-RT Battle Pack
4th Shelf - 6 ARC 170 BPs
Bottom - 2 UBPs
I'm not one who often uses the DCPI trick (I have a couple times, but not very often), but I did ask an employee nearby if they had anymore of the Galactic Heroes packs. She told me that whatever they had for that endcap was out on the floor. Maybe she was telling the truth, or maybe she was lying. I had my daughter with me, so I thought she would at least be truthful thinking I could possibly be asking for our kid (even though she is a bit young for those yet). Anyways, no luck there, and its the only one I'm really looking for. I'm hoping that this store will get more, or one of the other ones in town will have these big shipments some people are talking about. I ordered the other exclusives I wanted (ARC BP and TIE Bomber) online so I wouldn't have to worry about finding them (or worry about having to buy them all at once with the Mrs. along
). On a side note, the UBPs do seem to be selling pretty well at our store too. There are some left (mostly Endor I believe), but they are moving.
On the current topic, it has been hit or miss with me with Target exclusives as well. I will say that I usually am not quite as worried when Target has exclusives I'm interested in as other stores. WM is really hit and miss here, and TRU is usually overpriced (although Target can be high on individual exclusive figures too). Like I said, I don't use DCPI much, but the few times I have I've only once been lied to (or denied). That time, I checked the DCPI scanner which said the exclusive was "in back", and asked someone in customer service if they could look it up for me. They did, and said there wasn't any in town, anywhere, ever. I came back the next day, asked some kid at the video game counter, and he brought it out for me. It all depends on the people, but overall my experiences at Target have been pretty positive.
