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!

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
