edit - Just saw Aussiejames beat me to the report by 4 days! Embarassed

Hello all! Here is the new "officially" released vintage Imperial Blaster that was paired with my Governor Tarkin figure I picked up today. It's based on the V4 sculpt, made of hard plastic (with only the slightest flex), cast in solid non-translucent black plastic and it floats! There is a number "5" sculpted into the "clip" on this example and it's safe to assume that other numbers are used. As always please add this to the TIG list if wanted.

No doubt these millennials will kill the Star Wars collecting hobby , they got no clue of what it means and the years we have cared of our childhood toys. They don’t understand action figure in the first place , what else can we expect.

Sorry but I am still so very upset , what a horrible experience yesterday as I allowed to be fooled by fake millennial news.

Honestly , it is quite clear there is significant corruption in retailers. I don’t appreciate false information either.


Target , Walmart , and why not collecting database website such as jedibusiness can completely lost face , at least with me.

There is no sold out or limited stock of retro figures , not the case at all.

All there is Outright corruption and false information!!!
Just as it happened with original mail away kenner coins kept by employees. We see it today with VIntage collection and retro lines but the demand is also fake, irrational exuberance. Augmented and fed with fake news and lies to cover a corrupted scheme.

The retro figures never sold online , at least not last night Mother’s Day or never . I hunted them like a hawk , it never happened as Jedi business website claimed in news. . Show me the evidence these online sales happened, no target store has record of them.

There are inventories of retro figures in the Target stores , btw the upc given in the Jedibusiness website news is not correct , it is the one for Han Solo VC stormtrooper . The truth is the inventory available is kept by Target employees or influence people, as it also happens in Walmarts across the nation as well.

Yesterday a very upsetting case at a local Target store proved what I said. Lies about sales that could not be found in any store records and misplaced items that had to be found only after reviewing store videos with a Manager. So upsetting and illegal!!

Hasbro and collectors sites should not allow this corrupted activity to continue to happen and voice for Collectors.
This kind of corrupted activities greatly hurt collectors , artificially inflates prices and kills the spirit of collecting.

I wanted to post this comments on this the jedibusiness website and address directly but they eliminated the comments option.

More than disappointed about Target and also Walmart , shame on them and their shady employees

What a horrible day yesterday , what a waste of my time and so disappointed about Hasbro , Target , and the entire post 85 generation of xxxx , sequestering products that should reach customers.

Sorry for the delay. Everything is awesome! I had to get a real job so I have to be an adult now and get up in the morning and "go to work" so my hunting time is limited if non-existent. The toys have actually seemed to have dried up in SoCal anyway so I have moved on to record collecting. I feel like I am reliving my entire life over and over. Toys-Records-Toys-Records. I wonder whats next? When I was a teenager I sold/trashed all my toys. When I was in my 20's I threw all my records like freebies or burned them all in a trash can...

It seems I'm lucky I got in and out when I did with vintage.

Thank you for the recognition!

I had no trouble finding these Retro figures at all. Two sets, in fact. I had the proper DPCI number (087-16-8221), asked an employee and got them. These were also out on the sales floor. Specifically in the Men's department on a Father's Day display. Target website DID have these up for preorder, and sold out rather quickly. They were never intended to be released at Walmart, because the launch was exclusive to Target. I assure you, at least in my area, none of these were "kept by Target employees".

These are also going to be available on the Entertainment Earth website in the next few days.
