Target Easter Specials

Posted by ,
Republic Attack Shuttle

New Brickset member Rory emailed to say he picked up the following polybag sets at his local Target today:

Star Wars:
30050 - Republic Attack Shuttle $3.49
30051 - X-Wing $3.49

City:
30002 - Police Boat $2.99
30010 - Fire Chief $2.99

Demand for the Star Wars sets will be high, so get down there quick. And if you can pick me up a couple, get in touch :-)

Does this mean they won't be in the UK?

Oh I wanted to get the fire chief that's out.

Gravatar

Zwing, they might turn up somewhere eventually, but who knows. Better to be safe than sorry!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

They will probaly come out in the UK in the daily mirror :-)

Nothing at my Target yet. :(

However, there are some easter displays, so I reckon it won't be long.....

(Isn't it a bit early to put out easter stuff?)

I found them on accident at one of my local Targets in Olathe KS last night. Just happened to walk down the seasonal/easter aisle on my way to the back of the store and saw them out of the corner of my eye.

Gravatar
By in United States,

That's the same thing (accident) that happened to me. I went in for something else, was walking by the holiday aisles hoping to score some discounted Valentine candy, and saw the new sets. The shelves were full at the Tartget I got them from in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They also had a couple of Duplo sets right next to the City and StarWars ones. I don't remember the set numbers though.

Polybags? so if i see them are they gonna be little bags? What do they look like?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes, they are a small (~5"x6") plastic bag. There is a picture of the fire chief bag here:

I got all of mine Monday 2-15-2010. It looked like they had just started to stock the Easter stuff.

I was at Target yesterday and they didn't have any. I guess I will have to check soon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

i just picked up the fire chief and the x-wing.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks, Rory. I think i'll go check at my nearest Target.

Gravatar
By in United States,

will they be at any walmarts? the nearest target for me is about a hour away.

Gravatar
By in United States,

too bad i dont go to target enough to take advantage of these...the X-wing looks especially nice to me. No chance of it being online then, I assume?

Gravatar
By in United States,

none in the two south austin, tx as of yet.
checked earlier tonight.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

is there a chance they'll come out down here in Australia? Or only for the northern hemisphere?

Gravatar
By in United States,

christopher-In the few years that Target has been doing this I've NEVER seen these at Wal-mart.

As for being online, you know they'll be on ebay.

Huw, any offers yet to get them overseas to you?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@bmw, not yet!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Consider it done! I'll get over to my local Targets, perhaps as early as today. If they have any in stock I'll pick em up for you. How many would you like of each? I was just at Target yesterday (before I saw this post!). I'll either make it back to Target today or over the weekend.

Let me know how many you would like and I'll see what I can do.

To bad they don't have a Target in Canada. The last time I got an Impulse set, and took it to the cashier, he laughed at me since it was $5.99 for this little set (7567 Traveler to be correct).

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is it me or is it that Lego has finished using the 4 digit code? the new lego all starts with 30 with 5 digits...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@bmw, 2 of each will be fine, thanks very much.

@Aquapolis, no:

- 1xxxx are LEGO exclusives/direct-to-customer sets
- 2xxxx are Brickmaster and Architecture sets
- 3xxxx range seems to be used for some, but not all, promotional sets
- 4xxxx seems to be used for seasonal sets.

Regular sets are still numbered < 10000.

By in United States,

Spotted at the Target on the Tempe Marketplace today. They've also got the Duplo sets mentioned before.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

maybe for uk the daily mirror will have another promo again?

Gravatar
By in United States,

All four sets available in bulk at several Target stores in North Carolina/South Carolina in the US.

Gravatar
By in United States,

You got it Huw. As soon as my local Targets get these in I'll pick up 2 of each for you.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am so ticked off. I called Target, they just got it in and wasn't on the floor yet. I get there 15mins later and some guy bought the WHOLE shipment. I was so ticked.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Starstreak: Probably on ebay already!
Check another Target, they'll have it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

bmwlego- Two on the island. Checked one, which that happened to me. The other didn't get teh shipment in yet. But won't hold it when they do get it in. :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

bmw- ok just asking because i got two polybag sets when i was 13 there.

Gravatar
By in United States,

ohokay thanks Huw. xD

Gravatar
By in United States,

@WedgeAntilles:
Never know, the V-19 made it online for a brief period. They might do the same with these, though I wouldn't count on it. I'll be going to my local Target tomorrow to check it out; I'll post back if I find anything.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

These sets look great.

@bmw or any other sociable US Bricksetters - I'd also love a couple of these if you're willing to help out another Brit.....thanks !

Gravatar
By in United States,

Starstreak...Starwars4j??? Are you the same person?

I'll be target hopping Friday to check for these sets. If I get any I'll let you know.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

found out on interweb that there are pics of these sets with coming soon written on them and the blogwriter says the pics are from an official website describing news on the daily mirror.

CAN'T WAIT!!!!

;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Oh, wow! Cool! There's not a Target in my town, though. :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

No luck at my nearest Target...they haven't put the Easter stuff out yet as they still have aisles and aisles of Val Day clearance!

Gravatar
By in United States,

WOW, this is all like a treasure hunt xD. Sorry Huw, couldn't find it :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

When you visit a Target and report your findings it would be helpful if you mention what city the Target is in. I'm still planning on going this evening to check, will report back shortly.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Im going to go and look at targets for these sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Targets in Salem, Oregon had them, but none of the Targets in the Portland area do as of yet. All thought by tomorrow or Saturday. I was able to pick up a few of each. They limit how many you can buy and said their quantity is limited. I realized they were there since someone from Salem, Oregon was selling them on eBay a few days ago, so I called. I found it interesting that someone else in Oregon was selling them on eBay and had a quantity of 1000??? I'm sure almost all will have in the next day or so.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can't find them at targets near me! Where are they?!? I checked the Lego isle but they were nowhere to be found... I don't know where the "holiday section" is in the store. :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Target Store in Owatonna, Mn had all four sets out and in good quanity picked up mine tonight:)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Picked up 5 of each including the Duplo mystery packs at Target in Colorado Springs on Powers Blvd and North Carefree Cir for those in the area.

Gravatar
By in United States,

southpaw: They should be in the Holiday section. I don't know about your store, but all of the targets near me(CT) have that section near the food section.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just got back from two of my local Targets (Albuquerque, NM). The first had the Duplo sets and price labels but not sets for the city and SW series. Most of the shelves were bare, so I'm guessing they just hadn't been stocked yet. The second Target had all the sets in stock. I grabbed the Star Wars sets, and have 5 of each if anyone's interested.

@southpaw:
Look for all the Easter stuff: baskets, candy, decorations, etc. It's usually the same section of the store, it just changes with the season. Like alpha 40, my local Targets have it near the food section (probably the far back corner of the store). Within the section they'll have an Easter toy aisle that will likely have the Lego sets. I've never seen them with the regular toys or Lego sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

non here yet in cali, i checked in costa mesa and cypress.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I checked my two local Targets yesterday (both in Culver City, CA) and was disappointed twice, but in different ways:

The first Target only had the previous seasonal Star Wars sets: TIE Fighter, Grievous Fighter and V-19 Torrent. Which is great if you missed out on those the first time around. They did have the Duplo polybags however.

The second Target had NOTHING. Their Easter section was half-empty. I guess they're still working on it.

I'm planning to hit a couple of other Targets tomorrow to see if I can get lucky.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I checked two Target stores in Woodbridge, VA last night. Nothing yet. Going to check this weekend.

Gravatar
By in United States,

None in Monroe or Woodhaven, MI as of yesterday. Still too much valentine stuff I think.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Found the City sets at the Mt. Pleasant, MI Target. No Star Wars sets though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Fairfax, VA has everything on the shelves– SW, Duplo, and City.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Fort Union Super Target in Utah has them. I just had to go check since everyone here was reporting in...
The funny thing about the Duplo ones they seem to be a mystery polybag like you won't know which animal you get, but if you turn it over you can see through the bag and find out which one you'll get :-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Target Greatland in Bridgewater, NJ had them in stock, for now at least. Looked to have been picked through already.

Question: Weren't the Atlantis impulse sets supposed to be available at Target during this promotion? If not, when and where will they be available.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Seems to me like we got ourselves a good old fashioned treasure hunt!!! ;D

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Target in Reston, VA has a huge supply of both City sets and both SW sets. They had the shelf sign for the Duplo, but none in stock yet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

got all 4 of the polybags at the anaheim CA target on Euclid.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I went to Target hoping to find them but couldn't, so I got Jet Ray instead.

(I like it okay)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just went to target today and got bothe of the star wars and the police boat along with raid vpr

Gravatar
By in United States,

If anyone in Europe would like this sets get in touch I will work something out with you.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Found them. In Toledo OH.
Had both city, star wars and all Duplo sets.

FYI: Duplo consists of 3 2x2 squares and a random figure. Horse, Sheep, Dog, Cow or boy figure.

By in United Kingdom,

@parker4782, - just sent you a pm regarding your kind offer!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yesterday i found both of the target easter star wars sets and there were 5 left

Gravatar
By in United States,

Anyone found the Star Wars sets in New York yet? Namely the Hudson Valley or Long Island area?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nothing in the Clay/Liverpool one in NY. They didn't have much Easter stuff though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am in Denver, CO right now on a short trip. Nothing at the super target at Colorado Mills and the lego store here is not very good either.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I found the Star Wars sets on Long Island in Levittown.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I wonder when I can get them here in USA

Gravatar
By in United States,

thanks, bmwlego - might have to make a trip down to visit my mom if they don't start to show up around poughkeepsie.

Gravatar
By in United States,

SETS 30002,30010, 30050 AND 30051 were all available as of yesterday at Jantzen Beach (Portland, OR)

Gravatar
By in United States,

michaelvader: as of now they are only available in Targets in the USA.

I went to the target in Orange, CT yesterday and they had 30002, 30010, 30050, and 30051. No Duplo or at least were they should have been but I don't care for Duplo any way. I got 30002, 30010, 5x 30050, and 5x 30051.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Anyone in NYC able to find these?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think it's time for a "It's been a slow week for news...." article with the fact they are building a Legoland in Florida and that they are making a Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars!

(I've emailed you about these two things, Huw.)

Gravatar
By in United States,

jonbuddy- wow, a legoland in florida? thats Awesome! its anoying how there were only two lego lands. one in UK and one in california. i cant wait for the new game, i thought lego was done with star wars games. do you know when its coming out?

Gravatar
By in United States,

i think its really unfair how lego makes some US only sets and UK only sets. bad marketing in my opinion.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm also willing to work out a deal with our Euro Brickset friends, just pm me if interested. I'm still looking for those Daily Mirror SW sets (30004, 30005, 30006), too, so I'm definitely open to trading as well... :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@itsaturkey, No, there are Legolands in Denmark and Germany, too!

Gravatar
By in United States,

How much are the sets?

Gravatar
By in United States,

All four sets were available today at my local Target in Pennsylvania. I picked up the Police Boat and Fire Fighter sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@darthvader321:
It says at the top of the article how much the sets cost.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I have 1 extra of the 2 Star Wars sets. If anyone is interested let me know.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Gravatar
By in United States,

jonbuddy- really? i thought there were only two. thanks for the info.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gravatar
By in United States,
