The new Target exclusive Star Wars 9 pack has begun to hit store shelves across the United States. This “special action figure set” includes nine figures from The Empire Strikes Back and is priced at $49.99. If your local Target still hasn’t put it out on display, the DPCI is 087-06-1620. Happy hunting!
If you still haven’t picked them up, Target also has their exclusive Hoth gift sets on sale for $34.99. The sale runs through 12/18.
While Black Friday is still more than a week away, Wal-Mart stores have already begun to put out their holiday exclusives. Jason Blue Boost of the TFW2005 boards picked up both of the new Transformers HFTD two packs at the Wal-Mart store in Niles, IL. The sets are titled “Starscream’s Assault,” which includes dirty versions of Mudflap and Starscream, and “The Fury of Bonecrusher,” which includes a blue repaint of Ironhide and a battle damaged Bonecrusher. Both sets are priced at $29.96.
While out looking for Animated Arcee and Ratchet at my local Toys R Us, I came across the new Transformers “Shanghai Showdown” three pack. This exclusive set includes a “dirty” Mudflap/Skids ice cream truck and a white repaint of Demolishor. Unlike some of TRU’s other exclusives, this set is priced at a reasonable $29.99.
Target has slashed the price of its exclusive Star Wars Geonosis Arena Showdown sets from $12.99 to a more reasonable $6.99. This sale was not being advertised at the stores in my area. However, the sets rang up at this price.
Yakface is also reporting that Target’s exclusive G.I. Joe deluxe packs are scanning at $6.49. If your store still has them, the first wave of basic figures are also ringing up at $3.49.
While Target is known for their radical clearances, they usually wait a few months before slapping red tags on their exclusive items. Needless to say, I was a bit surprised to see that my local Target had marked down its new G.I Joe, Star Wars and Transformer toys after only a few weeks. These things weren’t exactly hot sellers, but with them marked down 30%, they’ll probably be gone by Christmas.

While Black Friday is still more than a week away, there have been numerous reports of people finding the new Target exclusive G.I Joe, Star Wars and Transformer toys at their local store. While doing my rounds this morning, I found an entire end cap full of them. Along with the Wedge Antilles X-wing fighter, they had two new Star Wars Clone Wars battle packs, the new TIE fighter with updated cockpit and the G.I. Joe Past and Present Rockslide ATAV. On top of that, they had all three of the new Transformers exclusives. Thanks to Computron34 of the TFW2005 boards for the pic.
If your local Target hasn’t put these toys out, you can use the links below to check and see if they have them in stock. Using the DPCI number, you can then have them pulled from the back room.
The Wal-mart exclusive Transformers Masterpiece Skywarp has begun to hit stores across the U.S. While out and about today, I found about 15 of them at my local Wal-mart in Madison, WI. As you can see from the picture, Skywarp is priced at $60.
My local Wal-mart also had the Wal-mart exclusive Blowpipe vs. Sideways set for $27. This set is a total rip off considering you can get two deluxes for $20. Not to mention, the Sideways in this set is no different than the one that has been on the pegs for months.
The Star Wars Ralph McQuarrie box sets have begun to show up at Toys R Us stores across the country. The sets are priced at $39.99 and include 6-7 figures. This really isn’t that bad of deal, especially when you consider that some of the figures were exclusives that still go for nearly $20 each.
If you haven’t had your fill of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen toys yet, you’re in luck. The Toys R Us exclusive Gathering at the Nemesis set has begun to hit stores in the U.S. Mr. Sparklebot of the TFW2005 boards found this box set at the TRU store in Murray, Utah. The Gathering at the Nemesis includes the Fallen, a G1 colored Soundwave and a (yet another) repaint of the Voyager class Megatron toy from the 2007 movie.
While not scheduled to be put out until March 22nd, the new Target exclusive Animated two packs have begun to show up on store shelves. silentrob of the TFW2005 boards found Sunstorm/Ratchet and Shockwave/Bumblebee at a Target in Maineville, Ohio.
If your local Target hasn’t put these sets out yet, you can try to get them pulled from the back by using the DPCI 087-06-0105.
