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.

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'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.

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...

the drawback of living in CST, I had to try and buy on my phone as well as fast walk to the electronics section.... I couldn't get the app to purchase but managed to buy everything I wanted in store. so happy I decided to go in person rather than rely on fast fingers. lol

Oh goodness no, that way leads to being buried alive by pops in an earthquake! At least for me. I limit myself to only things that I love, and even then, it has to be a really cool pop!

Of course, my definition of REALLY cool is pretty fluid!

I was lucky enough to score all the SW pieces online, but was the victim of an overzealous warehouse employee who crushed my Vader box before securely wrapping it in bubble wrap and double boxing it. If any OOB collectors has a box to spare, please dm me.
