Obviously Minnesota is the only place these have yet to show up at.

If anyone finds an extra battle rancor all cheap and can sell me just the rider for like $15 I'd love you forever.
And you'd have a nice inexpensive rancor to boot.
If anyone finds one and could pick it up and just sell me the rider, that'd rock. $15 for the rider? It'd leave you with a nice cheap rancor.
I think Hasbro might be going a little too far with the large items being sold on day 1 lol. As cool as this ship may end up I already have the other clone wars one and ultimatly have no more room for another.
Marvelous News has carded and loose pics up of the first wave of 2 packs (Wolvie/Forge, Ult. Fury/Ult. Cap, Elektra/Ronin).
Wasn't sure where to post, but the Rancors, o66 sets, and TAC/Legends are starting to get clearanced out at our Targets here in MN.
Around here we are actually swimming in han. The popular one seems to be Watto.
I've actually seen several articles interviewing people in the toy industry that suggests that retailer margins on toys are more like 30-40% rather than 50%+. And that's only at the big box level. On a recent Smodcast (Kevin Smith's podcast) they talked about running a specialty toy/comic store, and referred to 25% margins. And that's on what gets sold, never mind the items that languish on shelves and end up in bargain bins.
The reason there isn't an amazon for toys (ie toys.com) anymore was that the margins were actually too slim for it to be profitable, even with advanced warehousing and just in time inventory.
Certainly, both Hasbro and Target are strong, profitable companies, and their stocks are both buys at present, so that's a good indicator of who "wins" in these situations. However, I'd never call something like the BMF Falcon a "risk"....we Star Wars fans are too rabid about our collections to ever let that one slide past...it will sell out within a week and dissapear before showing up again as a re-issue a few years later.
This is a little overdue....I'm not sure if anyone here listens to the Official LOST Podcast, but I got around to listening to the final episode (prior to the finale) today. Anyways, in the Q and A, they get on the subject of whether or not Stormtroopers think they are "bad guys" (in a question relating to the LOST baddies). They discuss Star Wars for a bit, and its sort of funny. Anyways, just wanted to pass it along for anyone interested. Its a pretty good podcast overall to listen to anyways if you enjoy the show.
