In the past, Target exclusives have showed up in Canada, sometimes later. For instance, Zellers has had a few.

Don pointed someone else to this thread; figured I'd update this one from my post in the BSTF thread this past weekend:

Good news: it looks like Targets are getting the clone tank in stock now. I snagged the last one on the shelf from the store I was at this morning; the price is $49.99.

Ooh. This is pleasant news. I was starting to wonder when it was going to be released here. Good thing I had my pennies saved up for something else, now I almost have enough to get this. I'll have to start keeping my eye out and see if I can find it. Smile

I'm waiting for it to get on S@H. The Targets in my area never have the exclusives, so I'm not going to run around looking with today's gas prices.

Just wait for S@H, and get 1 for X-mas.

I've been keeping an eye out for it for the past month. When I see a specific revision date for the lego aisle or a salesplanner endcap for the tank i'll let yall know and post the DPCI for it.

It's available online. My local Target told me they don't carry it but others might.

That's funny that some Targets wouldn't carry it. Unless it was a Super Target, I thought every store did the same plan-o-gram for shelf stocking.

My local Target in WI didn't have it out last night but the DPCI came up positive for it in the store. That would be awesome if this year's Black Friday Lego special was the tank. Very Happy

BTW, your link says it is "arriving in 2 to 6 weeks", not available now.

I've been wondering if it would be...but then again, last year (or 2 years ago, whenever) I was wondering if the tie crawler would be, and it wasn't.

Called the Lego Co store yesterday. They said they have them in stock but won't start selling them until Oct 19. Not sure what the significance is, but hope the info helps. Very Happy

Downtown Disney says Oct 16 when I called today. So, somewhere between Oct 16-19. YMMV. Cool

Got mine today in Cincinnati. The one on Marburg if anyone from Cincy reads this. Smile

They had them on an endcap... looked to be at least 12-16 but I didn't count them.

For those who want to buy online and a target store is too far, they also sell the tank for $44.99 at starwarsshop.com (2 week shipping time) and you can get a further 2% off if you already have ebates. Might need to compare both at checkout to see which has better shipping costs and lower overall total cost. I could not find any further discount coupon codes for starwarsshop.com.

I got an e-mail from the Target online store saying mine has been shipped and should arrive in about 5 business days.

I hope that's true and they're not just teasing me.

Very Happy My sister and nephew are down in California right now (we're from Canada) and I asked her that is she goes to Target to look for the tank...NADA.

So she calls me from LEGOLand and tells me she just SCORED ONE FOR ME!!!! COOL SISTER OR WHAT!!! Cool

That saves me from looking around while in Houston when I'm down there in 2 weeks!

Got mine delivered to my door late last night which suprised me because it was less than 5 buisness days from ordering it.

I need to find time to sit down and build it now.

I guess that means they will be in Cleveland, OH as well. Hopefully I'll be able to pick one up this weekend.
