I asked a few people at each store. The inventory system for the store itself (which seemed to sometimes be different from what the Target website and app showed) also showed no stock. For the "Star Wars The Black Series 40th Anniversary Legacy Pack" for example, Target shows availability at a store but the store inventory itself won't have it. If you go to customer service to ask them to look, they will show nothing at their store but see availability at other stores, but if they call up those stores they won't have it either.

I wish you luck on your search!  I was able to snag him this weekend.  No way I was going to be able to make it to a target while at Star Wars Celebration.

Nice, my Rey Speeder Exclusive has shipped! Hopefully the item is in good shape. The only thing to worry about now.

Overall, got Luke, Rey, Leia, Han, Chopper, and Thrawn--I'm done. Now if I can get Qui Gon Jinn, that would be cool, but if not, I tried. 

And lol, Mark! Speaking of Grant Gustin, he will be at SVCC! If you see Qui Gon Jinn there, do that trick but say he is doing free photos, haha!

Call your local GameStop for the Legacy Pack. Most stores received 2 & should have just put them out today. For some reason the website doesn't even show the item at all. I was able to snag one :) Granted, their price is $44.99, but one in the hand is worth more etc. etc. I've got to be careful though, as my store also has Luke, Leia, and Obi-Wan. No luck on R5-D4 though. I should've pre-ordered that one.

A tip for you and anyone else in need of that R5-D4 - go to nowinstock.net and set up email and/or text alerts for when Gamestop's site gets them in stock.  I've been getting at least one alert a day for them.   

Nowinstock.net can also alert you when  Funko exclusives are in stock at their respective retailers.

Given up on Qui Gon. Target now showing it in stock at a few stores but if you call the stores they say there is none. Thrawn was the one I really wanted and that is sorted.

I'll try nowinstock for some figures. I had not planned on trying to collect these, so didn't act on R5-D4, Han and R2-D2 when I should have. The R5-D4 shows up on nowinstock as a preorder from gamestop but gamestop does not have it that way.

Luckily, some of the targets I went to yesterday were right next to a gamestop that had the legacy pack. I also found one at a target but with a damaged box and was able to get it for a discount. Checking to see if a coworker wants any but I will likely have 1 or 2 extra if people need one (at cost of course :) )

Now the listing is for a third party seller at the cheap price of $114.95. I got super excited when I saw the Add to Cart live, and then totally bummed when I realized it was aftermarket. Sigh...

Same. Been that way most of the day, just dropped to the regular price a little while ago, I had just finished having dinner and missed it. Oh well, at least it was nachos. The 3rd party price is completely ridiculous.

Nachos make everything better!

I was lucky enough to have been there and purchased everything at the con, but for those who weren't, I really suggest Forbidden Planet in the UK. Even with shipping, they have fair prices. And they ship in fantastic condition. I'm sure they'll be adding the SWCO pops soon!

We never drank in Canada so it doesn't count.

Or China or Norway or America or Italy...but we got Morocco twice, so I'm counting it a win.
