Does anyone know if Hasbro is still producing/shipping the Target exclusive accessory packs??? I've checked our Target constantly and I've never seen them. How many people got the chance to buy them???

They still occassionally turn up, from what I've read. If you've had no luck finding them at retail, I would suggest you put a request out for someone here to pick you up a set. I know they sell pretty well, so you may have just missed them. :(

I am currently going through the same dilemma. I have NEVER seen the accessory sets, yet the pegs for them are there. I have pretty much given up on finding them. It's too bad, really, I was looking forward to my 9th Battle Droid. Oh well, there is a discount at my Target, I can get plently of Droids there. But still, I would like the accessories...I wont ask anyone to pick me up one, this may sound "Antisocial" or something, but I just trust an online store such as Yestertoys, etc. more...Oh well, looks like I'm not getting those. :( But hey, I got the TIE Bomber, and that is one Hell of a ship! :D

Not sure. I know Asst. 2 is supposed to hit around March, so I don't think you'll see anymore of Asst. 1. You may have to hit the secondary market for them I'm afriad. :(

By the way, I read the case breakdown for Asst. 2. Not bad, but they had to shortpack 1 because they are only doing 3 sets for the next wave. With so many different sets that could be done, I wish they would have included a 4th. :(

(8x) 3 3/4" Target Exclusive: Accessory Sets w/ Figure:
(3x) Yavin Hangar w/ Rebel Technican
(3x) Jabba's Palace w/ Gamorrean Guard
(2x) Gungan Defense w/ Gungan Warrior

Man, I still see that Hoth one clogging the pegs at my local Targets. (Heck, I even saw one of the Hoth ones at a Wal-Mart today, no joke.) I haven't seen any others for a few weeks now though. But about 3-4 weeks ago, most Targets I hit had hordes of them.

I guess this is another example of crazy distribution.

Just last week, I saw an Endor set at a Target and today I saw a couple of Hoth sets & a couple of Arena sets. Plus I found the deluxe Clone there. But I have to go back cause I forgot to have them ad match it to K-Mart's price.

P.S. Wolfwood; love the avatar. Aqua-Teen & Sea-Lab rule.

P.S. P.S.; I just noticed there's no more post counts. Interesting.

NO AD MATCHING! I was gonna have them ad match Ep.2 tomorrow so I can get it before work and before TRU opens. That sucks.

My Target stores have LOTS of Accessory Packs. The Death Star Trooper set is probably the less common.

The day of the TRU Silver R2 give away a friend of mine directed me to a nearby Super Target that had at least four of each except Endor (of which they had none).
I've not been back since, but if anyone needs these guys, drop me a line and I'll keep my eyes open.

How much are they? I can get them freely at my local specialist store in B'ham (UK) so am wondering what their mark up was.

I still see the Areana and the Hoth sets in the stores, but it has been a while since I've seen the other 2.

I hope we can see pics of the Yavin and Jabba's palace sets soon. I'm hoping they include Bubo as an accessory with the Gammorean Guard.

I've never seen any here in Oklahoma either. I check at least a couple times a week, but still might have missed them. If I did miss them, they didn't get many in.

I still see the Hoth one... I think there is a good reason for that! :rolleyes: Okay... it wasn't THAT bad!

The stores i hit all over the weekend (everything in the Columbus area) didn't have ANY sets to my memory. I guess they're done until some new ones come out. suck! :D

No luck in Virginia either. Have yet to see one on the pegs.

I did finally see my first Dooku on a peg though...

I have tried and tried to find the packs and never found them. Is it too much to ask to have them availible from Target's website??? I bought my 12" Luke w/ Speederbike that way.

In the Seattle area I was only able to find the Hoth, Arena, and just recently the deluxe Clone Trooper sets. And at that there were only 2 of each on the shelf at one time.

I've never seen the other 2 on pegs. Like many collectors, I'm not a big fan of store exclusives because it's a pain in the butt to get the whole set.

If anyone knows where I can find the Endor and Death Star sets, please let me know.

Well...if any of you guys want to help me out I'd make a trade for any of the acc packs or I would buy them from you. I dont have negative posts about my trades. If anyone within an hours drive of Charleston WV has them or has seen them at Target we will drive up and buy or trade in person. I might even drive alittle further .

I don't go to Target but,I heard that some Targets do carry them no more.

My Target has never received any of the sets. I even had the store manager verify.

The Targets I regularly hit hadn't had them for some time but I visited a new super Target two weeks ago and found the battle arena and Hoth accessory sets, as well as the deluxe clone trooper and Geonosian warrior with hive. I skipped on the Geonosian for now but bought the others.

I found the deluxe clone and Geonosian at Kmart a few weeks ago. The flapping mechanism for the Geonosian is nicely done.

I've never seen these sets on the pegs in Kansas.

The last time I saw the accessory sets in large quantities was a Friday morning. I stopped at Target on my way into work to get some stuff for a party that night.

Well I just visited a Target last night and found the Death Star deluxe set. Only one more to go! Looks like they are beginning to get caught back up after the dock strikes.

I just found all four at my local Target :D

Jedi Drew

My wife found me all four when they first were out and then all of a sudden poof.....no more to be found!!!!:eek: :eek: To this day the Target by me has yet to restock them. Figure that one out. :confused: :confused: Happy Hunting.....

just got in a couple cases of the first four today looks like they might not be done with them yet.

Good..hopefully my Target(s) did as well so I can actually get them..

Dr Zoltar
11-26-2002, 05:20 PM
Yep, just confirmed that the Targets in the Seattle area got all 4 in plus the deluxe clone trooper. The shelf (yes, just one) was stuffed with them so it wouldn't surprise me if there were more in the stock room as well.

Val Da Car

Yep, picked up the four pack of Accessory Kits.....at my Tarjey...
I really am working on the Arena scene so those kits are my fav but the Deathstar on is very cool..

Mandalorian Candidat

Mine got in all four but they sold out quick. I managed only the Hoth and DS. About two weeks ago they restocked and I finally got the other two.

I must say the Endor one is pretty nice. Love that Imp. Helmet xylophone.

There are at least 2 full cases up here on the pegs just sitting if anyone wants them. The only problems are price tags and a small "imported by Zellers Canada" on the back. If you open, I can hook you up. Just let me know.....

I'm interested. How much?

It's about time, my Target got all 4 of them. I got the Arena set (My 10th battle droid) today, it's pretty cool. Good luck to you all! :)

Finally got all 4 sets just last week. There are a few left. They have been keeping them very well stocked for about two weeks. I have seen the pegs empty and refill about 3 times in that time.

Last week, the Boulder Target got them in. I had the Arena one already, I got the Endor one, and my mom got me the rest for my birthday and Christmas!

They're showing up again in my area, too! I picked up a couple of more DS trooper sets and the battle arena set.

Patient Zero

I finally found all of them in Phillipsburg, NJ last Saturday. It looked like they were all just put out. I imagine that they only lasted for the day.

You will find that the Hoth set lingers a few days longer than the other sets.

I can't wait until the new sets early next year!

Don't fear anyone, My Target got their first ones on Black Friday!

And yes I picked them up
