Sold Online Only? - Target's Shared Exclusive Retro Collection 3.75-Inch Darth Vader Prototype Figure
Here is an update on Target's Shared Exclusive Retro Collection 3.75-Inch Darth Vader Prototype Figure arriving at local stores. As of last week my local stores inventory system shown that stock of this figure was suppose to arrive by 7/28. But I did a follow up today and it is now listed as "Sold Online Only" in their Inventory System. Per the Store Manager I spoke to, currently there is no stock in the distribution warehouses and no product is in route to any stores within 250 miles of my location.
I also just called a dozen stores from the East to West Coast and they all said the same thing "Sold Online Only" no product in route to this store. You can also call your local store as well to check using the DPCI# 087-16-0870.
The purpose of this article is not to say these will never hit stores, but to give an update on the status of this figure hitting stores since I am always being asked when these will arrive. If I do receive any updates on when / if these will hit stores I will be sure to make a post.
If you do see this in stock at Target.com you may want to pick them up though. They were in stock this morning for almost 30 minutes in the early AM as we reported.Add a comment

Sold Out In Less Then 2 Minutes - Target's Shared Exclusive Retro Collection 3.75-Inch Darth Vader Prototype Figure
So if you were on Target.com last night waiting for the Star Wars Special Edition Retro Prototype Style 3.75"-Scale Multi-Colored Darth Vader Action Figure to become available to order and blinked you missed it.
I was checking their site probably every 5 mins or so between 2:50am - 3:15am (Eastern Time) and next thing I know it shows "Sold Out'. I thought there is no way it sold out within 5 mins, so maybe it went directly to sold out status (possibly because they didn't have stock yet) but today some of our readers have sent in screen shots (see one example above) showing they were able to order last night at about 3:10am (Eastern Time). I have asked those that sent in screen shots on how long the figures were up for sale and they stated about 1 - 2 minutes.
Hopefully Target.com will offer more for sale. Also these figures are suppose to hit local stores as well.
Thanks to those readers that sent in the screen shots and info.Add a comment

We have yet to receive any Press Releases from Hasbro on newly announced Star Wars Products, but by watching the Hasbro Panel from today the only new items revealed were
• Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch Figures
• TBS 6-Inch Luke Skywalker (Dagobah) Fan Choice
• TBS Boba Fett Helmet
• Hyperreal Luke Skywalker (Bespin)
And that's about it.
Have a feeling that the lack of product shown today was due to a majority of their resources being devoted to creating Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker products for the past year, which they will not show at this time.
It is also possible that they are holding back some products to reveal at other upcoming events as well.Add a comment

Received some Online Exclusive The Vintage Collection 3.75-Inch Gamorrean Guard samples and I am always getting asked if there iwas any changes on the figures between the 2011 and the 2019 releases, so I just took a quick side by side photo for comparison. 2011 on the left and 2019 on the right.
The paint apps have changed a little bit on the 2019 version. His armor is a darker charcoal color and the brown paints used is slightly different as well. Also his loincloth is a bit lighter in color. It maybe a bit hard to tell in our photo (depending on your screen settings) on the color changes due to our bright lighting, but in hand in natural light the differences can be seen. I will work on the rest of the photos soon and get them posted to our HD Photo Gallery.Add a comment
