I would like to complain about all the Target exclusives. Targets makes no sense at least not in Indiana, When Hasbro awards them an exclusive, They get one shipment in, and if your not there that day, sorry about your luck you can go pay 60 to 80 for a B-wing on e-bay or off a scalper. There limited shipments just fuel the scalpers more becuase they know that target will probably not get any more in. so they snatch them all up and sell them to the hoards off collectors that got jipped on a toy that was part of their childhood, and maybe would like there own kids to have and play with without having to pay 80 dollars for it. On the other hand Wal-mart will more than likely get several more shipments in a good example the tie bomber: i've seen it restocked several times at my local wal-mart. In part because the scalpers know that they will need a ton of money to buy all the tie-bombers that wall mart will restock. And to make it even worse Hasbro is gonna take the best ship off all time the Imperial Shuttle and give it to swartz or targets and make a whole bunch more collectors mad. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY KIDS WANTED THAT SHIP IN THE 1970 AND NEVER GOT IT? Please reconsider your exclusives, require your retailers to order enough units for the collectors and the kids of collectors who are trying to give the kids the ships they never had as a child.
