It's that time again! Hasbro has 3 new Star Wars exclusives hitting Target stores now. Get the lowdown, pricing, and DPCIs all after the break, and come back later this weekend for more details and pictures!
Arriving ahead of schedule for about $99.99, the Death Star Trench Run is on some aisles today-- due to its massive size, the aisles I saw couldn't have more than one out at a time just yet. Set to be a part of the "Big Book," history tells us that a discount of some sort may follow. But should you wait?
Got a Fry's Electronics nearby? They got some Hasbro surprises in this past week-- the 2009 edition of the Stormtrooper Commander and the 2008 Clone Trooper Senate Security are showing up, in star cases, at the chain for about $13. Good hunting!
After a sneak peek at Comic-Con in San Diego, pre-orders are now up for the Entertainment Earth Exclusive Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise Animated Maquette. It's a statue, scaled to the existing classic and Clone Wars animated maquettes made by the company over the past few years.
In stores right now is the Droid Attack on the Coronet, exclusive to Toys R Us stores and retailing for $24.99. But if you only look in the big display in the front of the store, you'll miss it.
The wait is over! And by over, I mean just starting because Hasbro posted the form and the details of this year's mail-in Boba Fett offer. You can click through to read it, or read below for the notes on what will (or won't) be accepted.

In addition to the Delta Squad set (and the Vintage Y-Wing, a couple of smaller vehicles, the Stealth Operations Clone Trooper, and a few other items) Toys R Us just started stocking the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Sith & Imperial Troopers. 4 of the 5 figures appear to be new sculpts, and it's pretty good for $39.99.

It's IG97, the "killer" robot. Based on the newest Battle Droid chassis, the figure has loads of articulation, a good amount of gear, and a comic-accurate head to boot. You'll want this one-- assuming you can still find it, which is entirely possible. Read on!
The SDCC exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Death Star set is now online at HasbroToyshop.com for $129.99 each. Click here to order yours before they're gone and enter coupon code COMIC2011 for 10% off.
He's small and fishy. Robonino was one of those figures fans started asking for, subsequently got, and didn't really buy. His Target-exclusive gift set is still available nearly 9 months after its introduction, which is a shame, as it's a nice set that should sell through. Should you get one? Read on!
At first glance, one may make the assumption that the upcoming ToysRus Trench Run X-Wing Fighter is another iteration of the 1997 Power FX mold or a repaint like the Dagobah version. But Hasbro went to great lengths to give Luke's signature starfighter some fresh insides by tooling a new fuselage and adding great detail and features in the cockpit. This may be your definitive 3 3/4 X-Wing yet.
The ToysRUs exclusive Republic Commando set is now available online at ToysRUs.com for $39.99 each and includes FREE Shipping. The set includes the four members of the elite Delta Squad (Boss, Sev, Fixer, and Scorch) and a Geonosian Warrior. Update: Out Of Stock
While last year's focus was on The Empire Strikes Back's 30th Anniversary, this year is all about "Getting Revenge". Marvel properties may be the movie darlings of 2011, but Hasbro remains dedicated to their Vintage mission,though most of what they showed at Comic-Con was packaging alone, as they largely touted their show exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Death Star set.
