I ordered 2 but neither are my preferred color combos (red and yellow torsos). Not sure if it's worth the hassle to try and trade or anything or just roll with it. gonna check them next to the vader/fett figs after work and see which works better in the context of the whole set

Well now Target has completely caught up to walmart. Retro stormtrooper mailed in a Jiffy mailer and destroyed. Crushed bubble and heavily creased card. Pics to follow. Glad I got some on Sunday.

What color is the figure? I am interested in buying this figure loose.

I have 3. With less than perfect cards if anyone is interested. Waiting on Darth Mickeymouse to pick if he wants one. Trying to get these to folks that missed out. Cost plus shipping. I will post photos later after he replies each has small dings and or luster issues. None of them have crushed bubbles.

Do you have the red body/head version or the turquoise version? I am very interested and will gladly pay cost, tax. plus shipping. Interested in either of these. Or possibly the Orange head/body version.

Please PM me. Thank you.

Here are the extras I have and am looking to pass along. Green has some dings as shown and some luster issues. Purple has slight luster issues and lower corner crease. Both available for cost plus shipping. Still hoping to find nicer ones to share but there were what they had...

A local Target that didn't get any in the other day for the big release allegedly had stock for this today. Placed an order for 1 for pickup and it went thru.

Then, I got an email saying the item was actually out of stock. Silly Target, you so funny. Ugh.

they are back at their putting stickers on things. Cmon man...

Yeah, mine too. I tried to carefully pull it off the card and it took some of the "Retro" sticker with it. Had to use some GooGone to get rid of some of the sticker tackiness left behind.

This was my first day order, came this afternoon. Happy it arrived*, and super happy that it is the blue body/head version I wanted most of all.

*Target switched shipping methods 3 times! Only last night changing the tracking to FedEx after initailly listing UPS and then USPS.

Had to grab some LED bulbs and this lone fellow was sitting on a peg. Don’t collect stormies but maybe he can be trade fodder if Droids Boba never comes to my area. (Though it doesn’t seem like this color combo is particularly desirable)

Is it a Target exclusive? Or Walmart?
Opened ot and guess what? He can't hold his gun. Same crap mold.
You forgot to mention that the blaster was loose inside the bubble😕

Late last night, on a whim, I tried ordering one again. SURPRISE!! Target said my local target here in LA had one I could pick up. So I placed the order not holding out much hope. It seemingly went through… Got the order confirmation email. And just now I got a notice that my order is indeed ready for pick up. I post an update later tonight.

Anyway, seems to be worth a shot, guys.

Target in CT has gotten more as well. It shows up on my app because I am on long Island even though there is a huge body of water seperating us.

I actually like the lighter colored Head & Body versions. Orange & Yellow are my favorites, with Red & Blue as the next tier of favorites in my book. No interest in the Purple & Green for me.

UPDATE: it was there. I got the Orange version. Card is in pretty good shape. One tiny semi-ding. And I must say the Orange is pretty cool looking in person. Cooler than I expected.

PS – I really am digging the goofy colored guns with this release. That’s a clever touch.

For any of my fellow Aussies....

I emailed popcultcha asking if they'll get these for pre-order (given they got the Fett variant) and got this response:

"If we can source them from the manufacturer we will indeed be getting them, and I'm sure the buying team is looking into it. If we get confirmation I'm sure we will get it online.

Please be aware though that some items could be "Exclusives" and are hard to secure, we will try our hardest.

I'm sorry I can't give you a definite "Yes" or "No" answer at this point and hope that the product you're after appears on our website sometime soon."

aussiesyficollectables has a placeholder for them, 1 per customer @ $49 each but no indication of when they'll become available.

Finally hit my area as the Target Employee said they would this week. I knew their would be none left for the shelf at any store, so I purchased 2 for in store pick up, as they showed having 8-16 in stock at multiple stores. First Time I ever got the Sorry from Target your order can't be filled. They did give me the option of driving 50 miles one way and 50 miles back to possibly get them at another store but I passed not wanting to Hulk out more than I usually do on a daily basis. Dr Jones will gear up for the next shipment.

That means people showed up in store and got them before the order pickers. This happened to me with Fett, and Din Djarin. ALWAYS go and get them first thing at opening! You can't rely on in store pickup because of this.

No wasn't that this time, I know to be their at opening even for a pick up on something like this, but the order was cancelled at 6:30am. An hour and half before they opened. They actually still have them available at the store that is 50+ miles away. I don't want them that bad, and I'm guessing at least one more shipment will come in. The Fun continues.

Target sent mine sealed tight in shrinkwrap, but they survived. And the barcode sticker was on the outside of the shrink. I got a blue torso, which I wanted, and an orange (would have preferred purple). Pic of the shrinky dink trooper:
