This is interesting.... Target sent $1 off coupons to a list generated by Hasbro! It was not a Target Card mailing list at all.

I know this because over a year ago I registered for the Jedi Points auctions by using a fake name of someone I knew from India... and guess what, he got the $1 off coupon today! I never registered him for Hyperspace or any other function - it was specifically for the Jedi Pointsauction because I clearly recall using his name for it just because I didn't want to get junk mail from Hasbro!!!!

My parents have Target card and did not get the $1 off coupon.

I think because Hasbro is suppying the Lava Vader, they shared our contact information with Target. Their privacy policy does say they will share info with "business partners or affiliates!"

Just thought your readers might be interested!

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
