You guys and your curses.  I think the Jets will do just fine this year with Favre at the helm.  Pennington is kind of a weak guy - shouldn't be surprised that he was getting banged up.

Couple of savings ideas for those feeling the pain of Legacy spending...

#1 Comic Pack sale this week is buy one, get one 50% off.  They are still $11.99 at TRU, so huge savings over Target if you can find what you want.  My TRU didn't have any more of the new ones, but they are the same DPCI at Target, so if you find new ones at the Red Dot, buy those and return your TRU ones.  I found my new CPs at Target last week and picked up two older ones at TRU today.  Excluding tax, I spent $26.58 at Target versus $17.98 at TRU for a savings of $8.60.

#2 I received a coupon booklet at TRU while making my purchase and it has two coupons good for 20% a single item.  One can't be used until 8/15 and the other can't be used until 8/22.  These are perfect for big ticket items like the BMF or AT-TE.  I was groaning about paying $40 for my B-Wing this week, but I took it to the service desk with my coupon and she took 20% off my B-Wing, which knocked it down to $32.  She noted that the coupon wasn't supposed to be used until later in the week, but I asked her nicely and she fixed it anyway.   ;D

Still not a fan of the increased pricing, but there are some good deals to be had at TRU!

Too bad they couldn't find any smoking hotties to man the booth.   :o

Have i mentioned how excited I am. Its just a good feeling. Favre changes the aspect on all the games. (Of course as a life-long Jets fan my next reaction is i wonder when he will get hurt) On a side note, I have always loved Chad and hate to see him go. I really hope he does well but since he signed with Miami last night i am so worried since the Jets play them twice.

You're wondering when Favre will get hurt!?  You do know he's played 253 games straight, right?

That Krayt is ******* amazing!!!  Wow.  Are you building these for your self or for sale?  Really accurate and detailed, and I love that he has a removable helmet!

5811
Exactly.  I'm a WM guy now if Target and TRU are both gonna go to the $8...  If WM goes that way, well then I guess that's just gonna be what it is then.   :-\

It never hurts to call the district offices of any of these companies and complain either.  I suggest it as basically the only thing you can do to raise a stink over it. 

I did exactly that.  Sent a complaint letter to TRU about them jackin up their prices so shortly after the MM sale.  I did get an apologetic response and said they would be forwarding the issue to HQ.  I don't have a lot of faith that it will do anything, but we'll see.

Saw the first few figures of the Hulk FFF wave at a Target in Fargo.  No She-Hulk unfortunately, but 8 figures to build FFF?  At $15 a piece?  Ouch.  $120 + taxes + figures I already have or don't want? :-X

Is she-hulk not shipping yet?  I have seen this wave all over, but no SH anywhere...

I got my Kazar and Shanna box set yesterday and they look amazing!

I nabbed 80% of Wave 2 at TRU yesterday despite them jacking up the price to $8.  Not happy about it, but it was the only place I've been able to find them.  If I can get them for $7 at WM or Target, they're definitely getting returned.

Got the TRU Bwing today.  Its a much bigger box than I expected for some reason.  I would have picked up two if they were $30, but hard to fork over $80 with everything else that's coming out.

Anyone notice that the pricing of the TRU BWing has changed?  Sounds like it was originally $35, but the one I picked up today was $40!

I've seen pretty much everything to date except for the Rebel Pilots 2 Evolutions set.

I've seen everything now.  The rarest on my shopping excursions was Wave 2 figs and the Hoth Speederbike BPs, but I've seen both just this week.

5816
Does anyone understand the TRU pricing logic?  Offer the figs for $7 when they're hot and people would have paid whatever for them, but now that the excitement has died down, they restock, raise the prices to $8 and ditch the free Grievous offer.  Seems like a good way to make less profit in the beginning and next to no sales from here on out.  ???

Amazing.  The Giants are the defending Super Bowl champs and they're going to be completely overshadowed in the NY press by a guy who was traded to the other NY team, a team that he liked less, and may only play for a season or two.  Oh, and that team has really sucked rocks lately.  And is in the same division as the New England Patriots.

Like there's anything to talk about with the Giants right now anyway.   ::)  You guys bitch like a bunch of old ladies.  I'm just glad the Favre situation is finally put to rest.

The current league settings should be the same as what we did last year.   :)

Yeah, but I wasn't in the league last year.   :-*

Kubricks / Re: Custom Star Wars Kubricks
« on: August 6, 2008, 09:50 PM »
I was messing around with my Kubricks today and created a simple alternate version of Jango from series 9. I simply popped/pried off the jetpack, slid off the helmet and then added the poncho from the TAC #57 Jango figure. I then simply enlarged the hole in the poncho and refit the jetpack, popped the helmet back on and presto - a AOTC cutscene Jango! Obviously, the jetpack is wrong but I'm fine with that. Pic to come....

here it is...


I really like the cloth custom Fett and Maul - I may have to try this myself!
