[USA] Pre-Order @ Target : LEGO Star Wars 10198 Tantive IV

Apparently, the LEGO Star Wars 10198 Tantive IV may not be an exclusive item to LEGO as its available for pre-order from Target. Target also offers FREE Shipping to this set as well ! Its kind of strange how this set is listed as “exclusive to LEGO” when its actually available from other retail stores. Keep in mind that LEGO exclusives also tends to be available to most retail stores after a certain period of time such as the 10188 Death Star.
