I've got a Friends beach one, Friends Camp one, City Mine one and a LEGO Movie one.
Good luck trying to track them down!
Once it leaves Target, I suppose they're up for grabs, but you'll be hard pressed to get them directly from the store.
I would consider the Target displays the best quality.
The number and variety of these models probably numbers into the many hundreds, perhaps thousands. I've been accumulating images and catalogs of glued display models, some of which were made just for holiday displays at larger retailers, and others were store window or counter display models for smaller retailers. Some models were rotated from store to store, and these rarely survived today. In fact unless a retailer actually purchased the models... most TLG owned models were either retrieved for destruction, or they asked the owners to do so.
In recent years it appears that TLG has gotten rather lax in their desire to have these returned or destroyed. Also the "Terrarium" variety of glassed in display models with lighting is a relatively recent phenomenon. Most LEGO display models were simply glued to bases, or often screwed and glued in place onto wood or other materials.
My Unofficial LEGO Sets Parts Collectors Guide started out with early display models, and the catalogs that they came it (most only had about 8 page of 24-32 models available). But once TLG stopped selling models, and instead started providing the free to retailers (especially larger ones), the use of display catalogs was discontinued.
Originally my collectorurs guide had the models broken down by early and later display models, but now it will be display models by decade. I already have about 200 display model images, and that is certainly not an all inclusive total. So now there are 2 chapters for LEGO retailer display models, one chapter for LEGO retailer display signage and shelving, and another chapter for LEGO retailer documentation.
This is way more complex than a few terrariums that contain lighted LEGO items.... that is but a small subset of the greater LEGO retailer arsenal...
Some images of displays over the years....
And then there are the hundreds of ones I have images of since 2000...... even working on an all inclusive list is going to be very very difficult....
