I was at Target yesterday and checked the toy section. Bingo!! They had the Hoth pack with Bounty Hunter booster shrink-wrapped to it!

The Target store made a mistake in the pricing. I scanned it and it cost $9.99. I scanned it again, in disbelief, $9.99. I have to say I drifted to the Dark Side and took advantage of the situation, buying one at the "sale price". I drifted even further because I bought another about an hour later.

I did not want to draw undo attention to myself. Also, Target has a sign stating they limit purchase of collectable items to one per person.

I thought it would be bad karma to buy them all at once.

I got one at my local target (but had to give $60 for it). I called ahead and had them check the dcpi # and they said they had plenty in the back. I had to wait a little bit before I could find someone to go get me one after I got to the store. And my Bounty Hunters booster had a Jango in it :D

Here's the DCPI # anyone needs it:
087-12-0754

I checked 3 local targets on Friday evening and found nada. Forgot to take the DCPI number with me though, so they may have had them in the back.

I got two this morning for $9.99 in Columbus, Ohio!!!!!!!!!!!

I used the new DPCI# 087-12-0754 and they cam up $9.99 in the stockroom. Had to play it cool and then ask them if they could sell them to me, they had to check for a street date, but then they gave them to me. They only had four total, so I'm probably gonna get someone to get more later on in the day for me. $21.33 for two Battle of Hoth packs and 2x Boosters from BH.

Anyone need a Crab Droid, Droid Starfighter in Walking Mode, Bossk, or Garnindan?

Sweet baby moses! :shock: Well, it turns out that there's another Target near my house, I'm going to see if they have it.
Oh, and I'm going to take the DPCI with me. By the way, who should I show it to? Just any employee? Or what?

I just found a girl in the toys/video games/electronics that was working...acted clueless having just looked it up myselfi n the computer and ask for her to check in the stockroom to see if it was available. After that, there was a conversation by the backroom lady and some managers before they sold it to me, they wanted to make sure on a street date. These thigns aren't being marketed any particular way and come in from a separate supply that does their Pokemon, Magic, Yu-Gi-Oh sales. So, they just sit there, apparently.

Check this number: DPCI# 087-12-0754.

Guaranteed, you'll get it for $9.99.

Well, it was for $10. Except, they are getting it the 2nd of December-more than enough time for them to correct the mistake... :cry:

If I get the opportunity, I may be able to get an extra, but I'm not totally sure.
