Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,532: Stormtrooper (Mimban, a.k.a. Mudtrooper, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 8, 2018

It's basically Han Solo with the mask glued on.  This Stormtrooper (Mimban) is in that 6 figure boxed set at Target, and it's a good collection for fans of the side stories and the Empire.   Even though you skipped the movie, I suspect you'll like the various troopers at the price.  (And it's on sale this week.)   Is it worth it?  Read on!

NYCC 2018: Star Wars The Black Series Exclusive Action Figures for 2019

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 7, 2018

3668 In 2019, Target will get a new version of Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise - note the slicked-back hair.   Slickback emeritus come complete with helmet, communicator, blaster, and what may well be some sort of sewage deco.  Delicious.

Joining him is GameStop's Rocket Trooper, which you probably also don't recognize.  The classic Stormtrooper body got a new helmet and a few other modifications for its release next year.

Abandoned - Target Canada

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 16, 2016

This video (thanks, friend of the site and also me Shaunputer) by Bright Sun Films gives all of us a quick update to the rise and subsequent fall of Target in Canada. Apparently, Canada is not conducive to selling at retail. If you can't find figures in the Great White North, or just want to know what the fuss was about, go watch this. It's entertaining.

3077 In "news that can scare youse" news, Target stores have a $29.99 3-pack of 12-inch (1:6 scale) droid action figures from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  Given no prior publicity or announcement, these sets include R0-4L0, C-3PO, and BB-8 - not a bad deal.  However, don't limit your search to the toy department - I found all of these sets and other toys in the DVD/movie/Blu-Ray section on an endcap.  Happy hunting!

Target Leaving Canada, Eh

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 15, 2015

Just in 2013, Target made waves by announcing they were moving in to Canada and supplanting Zellers. And now? Not. News reports confirm the big red dot is leaving the Great White North effective pretty much nowish. Basically, the roll-out was supposedly too fast with prices that were higher than anticipated. Will this mean US Target exclusives will go back to English-only packaging? We shall see!
