placed the old planes in the backroom in order to sell the new ones?

I used to see the old planes chilling and nobody was buying them. Then comes the new ones, they get the endcap treatment, the old ones magically disappear and they still ain't selling.

No, they wont put out new product till the old product is gone, why did you miss out or still need a few of the rattlers/conquests?

There has been all kinds of speculation regarding that and I've been told that the SKU numbers (whatever those are) are the same between the two sets of planes. I would have thought that Target would have clearanced the first Rattler and Conquest planes, much like they did the Ultimate Battle Pack, but I also heard that because of those SKU numbers, it might be a little tricky for them.

Targets around here still have the old product both in the aisle and on the endcap.

I held off on the Conquest but I know of a couple of places that have the old planes...I just don't want to drive that far right now.

My store put the two Conquests they had left on an endcap and put the new jets on the shelf with the rest of the Joe stuff.

My Target had some old jets...took them off the shelf and replaced them with new jets. The next week brought the old jets back out and now my Target has a mix of old and new. Last I checked there were about 6 of the old style and 4 of the new. They ain't flyin' off the shelf...no pun intended.

Like we didn't see that one coming.

Oh and my targets have a mix of the old and new as well.

Around the Capital District here in NY, I have seen a few Targets with both new and old mixed together on the shelves. The other Targets only have the new ones out.

Yeah, out of the three Targets I frequent often, one has the original planes on an endcap and the other two have the repaints. I would tell anybody still waiting to pick up the older ones to get them soon though. I'm seeing less and less of them.

I'm holding out for a clearance before I'll pick up the repaints. If I miss them, it's no big loss. I won't buy them for more than 50% of their price. I have the originals and really don't much care for PP/TF.

Quite the opposite at one of my local Target's. For months they only had 1 each of the Conquest & Rattler. Then they put up the endcap display and then 5 each of the Rattler & Conquest pop up, but no sign of the new ones.

That's my plan of attack for the new planes. Here is hoping to some clearance soon.

I was going to pick up a second Rattler the other night but all they had were Conquests so I bought Guitar Hero Metallica instead. I had a $50 gift card burning a hole in my pocket...

No, as of yesterday, 3 out of my 4 local Targets have an end cap filled with both versions of the planes, and some lame T-Former animated 2 packs.

A better choice. How is that Guitar Hero? Not a big Metallica fan, but I'm always down for a new GH... though I cannot play or listen to GH Aerosmith.

whichever happened, I just wish they would put them on sale around here. I would love to get about 5 of each, but they never have them on sale.

The endcaps here are usually filled with the old Jets. There's sometimes a couple of new ones in the mix, but not often.
