Hasbro and Wal-Mart teamed up to bring you a great Jabba the Hutt set, and it seems so well they jacked up the price. Available online (with free site-to-store shipping) is the Jabba's Throne set which, since its August release, remains difficult to find at retail.
Don't forget, this weekend will be the rollout of the newest Hasbro endcap at Target stores. We've seen Nerf and Transformers, but this one will be packed with new Star Wars exclusives. Keep your eyes peeled for Mini Mighty Muggs, Battle Packs, Geonosis Arena Sets, Clone Wars 2-Packs, and more stock of basic figures and other goodies.
The new Target exclusives are now available online at Amazon. These include the Hostage Crisis and Hidden Enemy Battlepacks, the 2010 Edition Geonosis Sets, Senate Guard 2 Pack, and Bounty Hunter 2 Pack. Thanks to curatola01 for the timely heads up!
The new Target Hasbro Star Wars exclusives aren't just starting to hit US stores-- reader Chad found not one, not two, but pretty much all of Target's remaining 2010 exclusives at Zeller's in Canada. So don't be too jealous of us in the USA, Canadians! Chad writes:
Jedi Defender has posted a listing of new DCPI's for Target exclusives that are expected to be released mid-month. These include the 2010 Geonosis 2 Packs, Mini Muggs, and Hoth Battlepacks.

This isn't your father's Texas Instrument watch. Casio, in collaboration with Complex, have produced two very limited edition G-Shock watches inspired by the soon to be released The Forced Unleashed II. The first named the Master (Darth Vader) x G-Shock Gw-7900, reflects the Sith stylings of Vader, while the Apprentice (Starkiller) x G-Shock DW-6900, is inspired by the Starkiller character. Each comes with a specially designed packaging and only 50 of each have been produced. However, Complex is giving a way a set of these at their site. To enter, click here. Good luck!

Still need Jabba the Hutt, this season's hottest and oddly hardest to find exclusive? Wal-Mart.com has it in stock again, and it's about $35. While you dawdle and perhaps complain about the price, it will likely sell out again. Consider taking advantage of the site-to-store thing to save on shipping. (We like this piece-- and we suggest you get one.)
