By Mike — Sunday, July 8, 2012

Are these the droids you're looking for? One certainly is. We're eternal fans of the galaxy's motorized domestic help, and Hasbro recreates Kenner's classic packaging once again for this Target exclusive, which like the original, faithfully includes modern versions of R5-D4, a Death Star Droid, and an all new Power Droid…GONK!

Review: Special Action Figure Set - Villain Set

By Mike — Saturday, July 7, 2012

The Target exclusive Vintage Collection Special Action Figure Sets make a return this summer with their gloriously recreated Kenner packaging. And while previous sets were mostly style over substance, the latest two include all new figures which ups the desirability and open them factor. This second Villain Set includes an all new nicely sculpted and detailed Snaggletooth that you'll definitely want to add to your collection of boozin alien barflies.

GHR: Target Marks Down And Then Some

By Mike — Saturday, February 18, 2012

Target sweetens the deals this week by marking down their "Shadows of the Dark Side" merchandise by 70%. This includes The Republic Attack Shuttle at an astoundingly low $23.99 (that's less than a price of a Class II vehicle!). If you haven't grab one yet, now is the time to do so. It may be not as appealing as an Original Trilogy toy, but it is fun and feature rich. The exclusive Vintage 3 Packs have also been marked down to $5.93. But there's a twist.

GHR: Target Markdowns, TRU Sale

By Mike — Sunday, February 5, 2012

After a lackluster January 30th that saw most merchandise released by Walmart weeks before and Discover The Force looking to be delayed until The Phantom Menace 3D hits theaters, it's time for some bargain hunting. Our Galactic Hunt Report advises you to stay on Target.

Target Has Titanium Priced Right

By Mike — Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Following up on our earlier report, Target seems to be the retailer selling the Titanium 3 packs for Hasbro's MSRP of $19.99, which leads us to believe that Walmart, usually the "low price leader' amongst big box retailers, has their $29.96 pricing in error or they are getting really greedy. We lean towards the former.

New Target Exclusive Star Wars Jedi Force Set Found

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, November 26, 2011

A stealth exclusive?  Yup!  Take note of this one, kids, because this is one of the ones you might skip and kick yourself about in about four years if the secondary market prices on Galactic Heroes are any indication.  This new Jedi Force Clone Wars Adventure Pack is $14.99, in some Targets now on a special mixed Playskool/Imaginext endcap, and is-- say it with me-- just different enough to make you mad.
