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.
