With 600, according to an official LEGO representative, of the exclusive 75227 Darth Vader Bust sets sold to lottery winners today - and even more expected to get snapped up over the peak Friday and Saturday period it's important to remember that this set is not a limited edition exclusive and will be available through other sources.


That's not a reference to eBay.com - where sets bought today for $39.99 are already being listed at more than triple their orginal purchase price - but Target.

In a slight calendar adjustment from the original release date of April 11th, this commonplace retailer will have these available from April 15th. The set will be available to REDcard members and can only be ordered through the Target website when it gets posted next Monday.

As an added bonus to those who can hold out, the box art - we are told by LEGO - on the one available at Star Wars Celebraiton 2019 Chicago is exactly the same as the one that Target will stock.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
