Some Target stores are beginning to put out new Rebels product in advance of official store resets. Today I came across some new Lego sets and some of the new Star Wars Command line. If you have a Target store in your area it may be worth your while to swing by and see what you come across, but remember your success rate will likely vary as today I was turned down by a store to get me a new Black Series Deluxe Jabba, even though the store had them in the back (which I think many of us have had similar experiences in the past with that).
It begins. Ray H (Darth Ray) reports that he found the Deluxe Black Series Jabba the Hutt and Biker Scout with Speeder Bike at his local Target today. Happy hunting! 087-06-0901

They’ve finally done it… James Burns and Dan Curto have reached a milestone in recording and releasing their 50th show together.
Join them on the Star Wars Collectors Cast for a very special anniversary show with some gifts for their listeners in the form of the ultimate fan boy Kyle Newman, who discusses his latest film along with his current collecting habits and his opinion on Episode VII and beyond. Greg Crafts from Gentle Giant joins them to discuss San Diego Comic-Con and what Star Wars exclusives they’ll have available at the show. Ashley Eckstein drops in for a quick chat to talk about Her Universe at Star Wars Weekends, the R2-D2 ‘My Hero’ Jewelry Collection, San Diego Comic-Con and they ask if she’s missing Ahsoka. Finally, the Collectors Cast wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Rancho Obi-Wan to catch up with Steve Sansweet. All this, wrapped up and tied with a bow – their gift to you to celebrate their 50th show.
It looks like the Walgreens Exclusive Boba Fett is sold out – a least temporarily. Keep checking back though in case you missed your opportunity.
