I was able to get Vader and Jordan. I think my local Target did a great job. First time they do this. They told everyone to line up, they said the pops were going to be in customer service and when they opened, they walked us in via the line. They had three cashiers and one person asking the next person in line what is it they wanted. Went smoothly. Great job Target. Hope you keep this up. By the way, it was only one of each item per person.

How often does Target do these (sorry, new collector here) Targetcons?

Forgot to mention I had an employee check his scanner to see if there were any MJs in stock or anywhere nearby. He said it shows “discontinued.”

Wow, so many 10" Pops but my hubby only wanted Toothless. I ended up getting 2 of the baby Ewok (how can you resist?!?), Vader and Jordan. I wasn't in line at all, in fact, I was there maybe 2 hours later than opening so I was lucky to get what I did! Very thankful to get Jordan, our store only allowed 1 per person which I understand. Hopefully more restocks to come so that people can get what they want if they missed it in store or online. Good luck friends!

Did anyone else receive the Titanic 2 pack instead of Wayne and Garth? Mine came in 5 days ago, but hadn't had the chance to open it yet. That was a rude awakening this morning. I can't stand Celine Dion!

Never let go Garth.
I promise. I'll never let go Wayne.

That is weird your target needs to implement rules. At mine, they always look at self check out to make sure you don't have more than 1. The person at the front does.

Mine doesn't even allow self checkout. They have them behind the counter in the back and only allow one per person

You know it could be mine is like that too. I came in after the last target con and bought a pop that wasn't an exclusive and that's when they stopped me to look at it and said it's limited to one. Then she said oh it's not one of those... So maybe they do make them initially go to the back. I have seen pops lined up at the desk in electronics.

I failed at the local place, cheapest I saw it was $25. Which isn't exorbitant, but it was above my mental cap of what I would pay. So instead I splured, via ebay, on another pop that I've been stalking. Yet again, Target-con fail.

My local Target did a great job this year. They had 13 Jordan's and I was 11th in line. Got everything I needed with no funny business.

I missed Jordan which sucks but I got Darth and won jack-jack in a local giveaway so I can’t really complain.

I'm not a huge Star Wars fan. I did happen to see 3 Vader Target exclusives today. I decided to pass.

Do any of you buy pops even if you're not a fan of a particular pop -- just for collector's sake and knowing somewhat of a rare pop is right in front of you?

I used to buy pops that I thought were cool to collect, I have since dropped that. I only buy pops that I am a fan of because if I didn't I would go broke.

Hoping for a re-stock down the line. I missed the Jordan one and I’ll be patient to hold out on paying extra

For what it's worth, 2 Target employees told me that Jordan is discontinued.

I went ahead and ordered one from ebay before the price increases even more (if it does), and then I'd be kicking myself even more haha!

Can you really trust the employee though? My experience is that they are either flippers or don't know anything about pops...

I like that they are trying to prevent people from taking multiples.
