    @iccarus at which Target did you see the new easter polys? I've checked two Targets in Madison and no luck.

    If a super target ask for them, as it appear some stores have not completed their Easter setups yet. Not sure about Regular Targets as Im not sure when they get their stocks in.

    @iccarus Is the Friends Mini-Golf an easter poly & if so do you know the DPCI number?

    Anyone in the Tri-state area looking for 30244-Anakin's interceptor polys?
    TRU has them and they qualify for the sale. I'm not a SW collector but I saw them at the beginning of the week and thought I'd pass the info along.

    Unfortunately did not ask for that DPCI, however if you ask the Target rep and say friends mini golf they should find them I think (if they have them)

    I took a pic of it, but I didn't actually buy a copy on this trip. I usually roll the dice on polys and wait for clearance.

    I'm not even sure how to get the DPCI. Is it printed on the receipt or do you take it off the shelf tag?

    Dump trucks? The Creator poly?

    @iccarus Yes the DCPI is located on your receipt @norm103 has posted it above,thanks.
    I'm guessing he means Garbage Truck instead of dump truck.

    a person on our facebook lug page (not an active member of the lug) showed a picture of all of the polys he bought on clearance (around $1 each). It was in the 70s. He basically told all of us he won't be sharing any of the deals..what a swell guy, huh?

    Id tell him to $%^& off (and I'm sure there were those that did). I'm guessing someone did that around by me, as neither Target had swamp copters anymore even though they had TONS of them a week ago.

    I get that people do it (1 dollar and change for the set.. heck the figure is around 3 USD retail), and horde to sell in their stores. However, those that gloat about doing it really do bother me.

    Also another reason why having a facebook account is counter productive to me.

    I've been picking up clearance from Target all week. Was real happy to find four of the polybags for 34 cents today (they were up at the checkouts so must have been missed). I love stocking up on these as I use them at school for our Lego club as prizes.

    Yeah, it is weird. You have to ask for them out of the back. It is like Target has their Easter aisles kinda set up, but not completely.
  • MrJ_NYMrJ_NY A flick missle away from Brickagara FallsMember Posts: 592
    A Target here was showing 13  Swamp Helicopters & 5 Smoothie carts at 90% off so I went & searched the entire valentines clearance section and found nothing at all.I looked thru every toy aisle/near every register and all I managed to find were 2 Smoothie Carts but for .39 each I can't complain.

    I think most targets are like this when they still have the clearance from the previous holiday out.  Since they use the same DCPI for the polys they can't put the new ones out until they take out the clearance for Valentines otherwise the new ones will ring up for 90% or whatever it currently is at.  I was able to get a bunch of Polys a couple years ago because my Target at the time wasn't paying attention to this.
  • MrJ_NYMrJ_NY A flick missle away from Brickagara FallsMember Posts: 592
    @graphite the DPCI's are different for the Valentines & Easter poly's.Only 1 store out of around 10 here have theirs out in the easter section so far.

    Friends Smoothie Cart 086-14-3259
    Swamp Helicopter 204-00-0459

    Friends Mini Golf 086-02-3260
    Garbage Truck 204-00-0251

    Found 6 swamp copters at a Target. All of them were at the checklanes. If the inventory checker says 13 on hand, have a team member check to see if they are in the back. Since it is a toy, not valentines packaged not everything got pushed out of the backroom.

    Went to four Targets over the weekend in South Jersey.

    The Easter areas are all in terrible shape.
    When I asked the seasonal associates about whether or not LEGO would be placed in the planogram they looked at me like I was nuts and sent me to the Toys area.

    And their register areas still have the same old battered Republic Gunships, Police choppers, and Chima.

    So much for seeing 20+ Garbage Trucks on the DCPI searcher.

    I found a ton of Garbage Trucks at a Target in Michigan (like 40)
    They were on the bottom shelf of the cheap $1-5 toy section
    It felt kinda weird to be honest
    I don't know who would have thought to look there
    The only reason I saw them was because my 3 ft tall, 2 year old son wandered up with one and I had to have him show me were he found it

    In addition to having the 30313 Garbage Truck on the shelves at a nearby Target in Tinley Park, IL, I did find 30311 Swamp Helicopter and 30314 Go-Kart Racer at the Legoland Discovery Center in Schaumburg, IL. Got a couple 30256 Chima IceKlaw Mechs as well from Toys R Us in Matteson, IL too.

    I have been to five targets in the NOVA area and I think part of the problem is with stocking ... I have found the garbage truck in the Easter section, toy section, and aisle ends depending on the store ... Same goes with mini golf ...

    Yeah stopped over at a Meijer when I was traveling, picked up a couple of wish fountains and creator tigers. They had #30204 Wish fountains, #30202 smoothie stands, and #30313 garbage trucks. Trying to remember if they had the #30311 swamp copter, I think they did. The Friends sets were 3.99, City were 3.49 and so was the #30285 creator tiger I think.
