Stay On Target: Toy Story Jeep Found In U.S.

Postby Staff » Wed Nov 03, 2010 11:30 am





Jere Bottgenbach reports finding the polybag 30071 Toy Story Jeep at his local Target store in Salt Lake City, UT for a commanding price of $3.99. He reports finding it at the checkout lane. Time for me to make a trip to Target.

Just went to my Target in Midlothian, VA. Not only did I find the Toy Story Army Man/Jeep combo, but the X-wing mini from Easter 2010 (I think that is when it was released) and the World Racers Jet Ski polybag (30031).

All 3.99.

I went to Target hoping to find this, but then it dawned on me that this is $4 for a small car and one guy, when it's just a couple dollars more for a big(ger) car and 4 guys, and I was glad I didn't find it.

Yeah, saw the labels on the shelf for the jeep here and the X-wing mini from last year. Anyone know if there will be any other Star Wars minis during the holidays this season?

It's not Star Wars, but my Target had oodles upon oodles of 4900 - Fire Helicopter set out at the registers on Monday. Perhaps that's one of the winter minis?

I sure wish I knew why neither of my local Targets ever have these "checkout lane" sets . . . :(

I must not be the only person who is unimpressed by this set. I'd rather get another Army Men on Patrol.

Uh...which store in "Salt Lake"? The day after this was originally posted I checked almost all area stores (the ones I didn't check would not be considered "Salt Lake City" as stated above). The stores only had mini X-Wings and Power Boats in Seasonal and the only thing by the registers was the Fire copter. On my hunt, there was one store that had empty $3.99 LEGO hooks by EVERY single register. I suspect someone bought them all up, if that is indeed the store where they were originally found. Could you please provide the DPCI number from the receipt, Jere? Or at least disclose the exact location of the store where they were found? Thanks

I found the X-Wing on Friday at a Super Target in WI in the Christmas seasonal section. It was the only SW option, but there was a World Racers wetbike guy and an empty bin for a lightup Lego keychain. They had the prices mixed up for the X-Wing (supposed to be $3.99) and wetbike (supposed to be $2.99). At Easter the X-Wing was $3.49.

Really? Check the price again. I got my Xwing for $2.99. I did see the lego keychains. They are $6.99 I believe. Similar to the headlight Lego minifig.

I also found the mini X-Wing and wetbike at a local Target. And, the prices were the same as reported ($2.99 for the X-Wing)

They rang up at $2.99 but I think the tag is wrong. It says something like 'Lego polybag' for the X-Wing but 'Lego Star Wars' something or other for the World Racers set, which is $3.99. I'm thinking someone swapped the DCPIs around because of the label and because the licensed stuff is usually more than nonlicense.

Maybe, but $2.99 doesn't sound right at all for a set with a minifig + parts. Boxed impulse sets are $3.99 now and those come with maybe half the amount of ABS as what is used to build that jet skii. Meanwhile, that X-Wing would be pricey at $3.99, 61 parts sounds nice, but it's all clips and bars and 1x1 round stuff.

My Target had the same price/tag switcheroos listed on the shelf and in the system, confirmed tonight by both a price checker and at checkout... The X-Wing rang up at $2.99 and was listed with some non-SW id, while a City police speedboat thingy rang up at $3.99 and was listed as the X-Wing.

I can't disagree with that, but the MINI X-Wing at Easter was selling for $3.49.


I also saw that besides the World Racer minifig set there's a City boat for $3.99. I want to say it's a police boat but I may have that mixed up with something else. I didn't find any of the TS3 jeeps but did see a few of the Lego gift cards. There's a display by the greeting cards but also one in the back by the Christmas candy and another in the front on the other side of the store from the cards.

Is there anything special about this set, other than its rariety? What I mean is, are there any rare pieces that come in this set that aren't in the full-sized jeep set? If not, why does anyone care about this one, you can get 4 guys and a lot more green parts for $11.
