More of a NOTHING-found post here. Targets checked all through the eastern US on my way back from PEI had NOTHING newer than the TPM wave.  :mad0137: and the WalMart I went into was stuck with the same thing.  :mad0177:

Was over in Niagara Falls, NY tonight. Very similar finds to what jjreason reports. Actually, the pegs looked worse than on the Canadian side. Only a few TPM stragglers left. Everyone is waiting for a shelf reset I think. I did find a few of the Series 2 Fighter Pods at Walmart (kinda sad when that's a "sighting"... but I bought some anyways). I went by Target to see if I could find the new vintage 3pks. None on the shelf, but I found a really great and helpful employee who went and got me a pair of each set out of the back!!! Rang up at $24.99 each, but I was super happy to find them - it's been a really long time before I felt the joy of a new find!

Are there some new figures in the newer 3 packs? I saw something about a new Snaggletooth but didn't think that was ready to come out just yet.

Yes, there are 2 new sets - one with the new red Sanggletooth and one with a new Power Droid. There have been several reports on Jedi Temple Archives and a few on Rebelscum about people finding them at local Targets all over. For the most part it sounds like they are having to get them pulled out of the stock room, as I believe the stores are waiting to do their resets before putting the new stuff out on the shelves. I took the DPCI number with me and checked it at the scanner, which said they were in stock in the back. So I asked the guy if he could go find them for me and luckily he did not give me a line about how they aren't allowed to put them out yet because there's nowhere for them on the shelf. It might have helped that he wasn't from the toy dept, but from electronics.

By the way, I highly doubt (think it's been confirmed) that these are NOT coming to Canada this time. So if you get the chance to look at Target, go for it! However if you don't manage to get them, I'm willing to bet that we'll see those molds released on single vintage card in a couple years when TVC returns.

Thanks for the info. Having just passed through about 7 Target stores in the last week (and not even knowing enough to look for these  :speechless-smiley-004: ) I think I've blown my chance for now. I might have some buddies stateside have a look, but I'm not too keen on dumping $50 for 2 new figures, especially when we still need those cardbacks in re-made vintage fashion.

I agree the price is kinda steep. Seems to be a trend at Target lately for their exclusives. If you've got buddies in the States that are lucky enough, they might be able to find them for $14.99 instead. The prices for these things are pretty unpredictable. I don't think they've fully gotten them into the system properly yet. Have a read at this report for some explanation, if you're interested: http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/content/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=10206

Seems US customers are starting to report finding the Ewok and Yavin multipacks at US based TRU stores. Anyone know if they will be coming north...I mean obviously not to Quebec but Ontario isn't that far away!

Vintage Wave 6 showed up yesterday in my Toronto LCS!!!

Interesting buying trends...all the Vaders were gone, plus the Leia and Jar Jar Vintage cardbacks, but there were Lost Line cardbacks still on the pegs.

Someone on ebay has a Canadian carded "lost line" Vader up. Is this a sign these are on their way to store shelves???

I just think this means the product is already available through Specialty Hobby shops like Legends. I got my share from my dear friend José and all cards are indeed trilogo. :)
