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!

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
