30th Anniversary Collection / Re: Recent 30AC Purchases
« on: October 4, 2007, 05:05 PM »
The flood of new stuff in the past week or two has left me feeling more overwhelmed than probably any time in the past 12 years of modern collecting (including the Midnight Madness parties).  Finding the rest of Wave 4 (McVader & CZ), all of Wave 5, all of Wave 6, eight more UGHs (already had the first three), and the last several new assortments (full of variants) of the Legends line has burned a complete and total hole in my wallet.  With "needing" both carded and loose specimens, along with army builders, I'm pretty sure I've dropped over a grand on this **** in the last 10 days (I dare not add all the receipts up to verify that though).  Hasbro really needs to slow their product down a bit here, and soon, or they're going to seriously burn a lot of folks out real quick at this crazy pace.  Good lord.  :-\

Well, to be fair, there was at least a 2 month gap between Wave 3 release and Wave 4, so if you figure that you saved up over the last month or two, the cost this month doesn't seem so terrible.  And unless you are building some massive armies, you probably didn't spend a grand on all of these.  At an average price of $7, that would be like 140+ figures or about 12 cases.  If you buy two of everything, you're probably out maybe half that, which is still a good chunk of change.   ;)

Anyway, I got my HTS order of 2 pit droids, 2 imp commanders, and a yellow SA Clone today.  They were in an undamaged box, but just loosely packed inside, so they got a little dinged, but not bad for about $5 per figure.  Note on the pit droids - I got the white version even though it said brown online.   ::)

Outside of a few reports, I have not heard about Traget getting anything in stock. WM now is up 3 waves on Target.  I really hate how Target treats us, Im not buying anymore of their over priced "excluisives" ! If anyone can find out why Target isn't getting TAC in stock, please let us know.

My local Targets have received 3 different cases of Wave 4 figures, including 6 of the 12 UGH.  None of my WM's have figs beyond W3 and they have just as many Saga left as the Target stores.  Target will be getting W5 and W6 as soon as they filter thru the rest of their stuff.  I'd be more upset at Wal-Mart - did they blow by W4 UGH too quickly?

Had a great trade with the Axe Man.  Friendly conversation and super fast shipping.  Would definitely trade again and recommend to others.  Thanks!

Little late here, but what did everyone think of "Upset Saturday" this past weekend?

Florida loses
Texas loses
Oklahoma loses
West Virginia loses
Rutgers loses
Clemson loses
etc., etc.

Crazy stuff, and the top 10 is very interesting to say the least...

Enh - college football rankings are such a joke.  How is it possible that all these teams were upset, but my undefeated Wisconsin Badgers never move up the ranking?   ::)

Man, that guy has concrete blocks for arms.

It's like looking in a mirror.

Ha! Do you work in the fun house at the circus?

Looks like Tampa is trying to work out a trade with Minnesota for M. Moore or C. Taylor.  Given E. Graham's performance the past two weeks, I'm surprised they feel they need another back.

Wow, wave 6 already?!  This is going to be an expensive month!

I picked up 3 Legends 501st and 2 Alpha/Obi comic packs at my locat Target.  They're still marked at $3 for basic figs and $5 for comic packs, so the whole lot came to just $20.   ;D

Packers continue their march towards an undefeated season and yet another Super Bowl victory!  Woohoo!  ;)

Other Toy Lines / Re: Does Anyone Remember "Gobots"?

I still have about 10 Go-bots, though I can't remember their names.  A Jap fighter plane, Cy-Kill, Leader One (F-16), some water plane, an ambulence, a blue tank, a submarine, and maybe a handfull of others I can't remember.  My favorite was this guy that turned into a flying saucer, which is hilarious if you think about the premise - giant alien disguises itself by turning into a UFO.   ;D

I thought I heard something on one of the news stations last week that GI Joe did in fact have a cartoon in production.  I have no idea when it would be out, but they made it sound like it was coming out fairly soon?   ???

The Domino/Cannonball and Cable/Marvel Girl 2 Packs. I live in Southern California.

Cool - Thanks!  I have no Wal-Marts near me either, so I'm feeling the pain.  Luckily I'm just looking for 1-2 figs from each wave (Black Knight, Sue Storm, maybe Marvel Girl wave 3 - not the 2pack).

I would think that the scalpers would see that gold EU coin that comes with the Darktrooper and scoop them up on that basis alone.  I've still yet to see one at retail.

I thought the same thing.  Most "scalpers" probably don't know the difference, so it seems that they would grab the Darktrooper.  I'd be willing to bet that Darky is actually harder to find than a lot of the UGH due to his troop building potential.

Picked up UGH Mace/R2/Marine x2 at Target this morning, as well as two more McVaders.  All finished with regular W4 and half the UGH.  Best part is they're still selling at just $2.99.   ;D  Also got some extra UGH and CZ4's for the MN group.  ;)

Just an FYI that Targets in Minnesota received basic wave 2 figs this weekend.

Don't know if you guys have seen them yet but they had the new 2 packs at Walmart this evening.

Which two packs and in what area do you live?  ???
