As for getting this sucker, starting in early July, I'll be hitting Target customer service with the DPCI...

EXACTLY.  With 40 Targets around the Mpls metro, I'm hoping this is not much trouble to track down, especially with the DPCI trick.

EBay boycott winds down, but anger remains

Interesting article.  Of course, Ebay is going to say they didn't notice any impact - if they admitted this hurt them, it would drive people to do it again, but saying it did nothing makes people feel as though there's nothing we can do.  I'm not a big frequenter of Ebay, but I applaud those who are and avoided the site to make a point.

Saw, but didn't buy, the new vehicles...  AT-AP and Grievous' Fighter.  I want the fighter but I'm waiting I think, at least for the time being.

I did find the Jedi Evolutions and last of the Comic Packs I needed though, so now I'm down to needing the other 3 Evolutions sets and, now I guess, Wave 2 as well.  Don't know when Pitt will see Wave 2 though, as we've yet to get Wave 1 in any abundance.

Which retailer?  ???

I just wanted to let the participants know that there is still one person waiting for his gift and I'm told it's on its way. 

Wow, I'm sure there's a good reason, but its almost May!

Sorry, email popped up mid sentance.  Meant to say "...its almost as close to Christmas as it is to May!"

What do you guys think about Daniel and the cards scene. They seem to know that the island has some type of special property and i think they were testing psychic abilities.

This was my first thought as well - that he was testing paranormal abilities.  The Aaron thing was pretty obvious once they mentioned her baby.  I was trying to figure out the timeline and it just didn't seem to make sense.  Even if she's 3 mo. pregnant right now (on the island), she would be 6 months pregnant back hom, and doesn't seem to make sense that they would wait over six months for a trial.  Agree that the episodes keep getting better and better.  Kudos to the writers for bringing some mystery back to the show.

Anyone finding any '08 figures at Target yet?  ???

Not sure if this has been posted 100% legit and can be used over and over again until October.  Hope it helps  ;).

Basically you've got to buy 4 figures to use it, but the price drops to $5.39/each.  And we like that.

Our local Target has figs for $2.24 each, so that means you have to buy 12 and the price drops to $1.82 per figure.  Now that's funny. 

Anyone tried the coupon yet and had it work/not work?

I just wanted to let the participants know that there is still one person waiting for his gift and I'm told it's on its way. 

Wow, I'm sure there's a good reason, but its almost May!

So what is their excuse reason for the substantial price increase?

Econ 101 would say this is just supply and demand.  They sell out of their 12" exclusives within an hour of them being available, so why not increase the price.  It sucks as a collector and I certainly was not happy about the price...but I still bought one.  If it was my company and my profit at stake, I'd certainly jack up the price.  It could come back to bite them in the arse, but looks like the huge increase didn't chase people away this time around.   :-\

Wow, it's being waitlisted after only an hour of being available?  That's pretty quick, but they said it was limited to 1,500 pieces.  Did they give you an option for the nonexclusive figure?  At $90+ I don't know if I would want the nonexclusive, and I'm also glad I only go for select figures.

Yup, unless I did something wrong, the only way I could get the exclusive was to wait list.  They did have a pre-order for the regular version available it seems.  However, for $90, I want the exclusive version (as you supsected).  If not, someday I'll pick one up on eBay.

I've gotten every SW 12" that I ever put on wait list (3 of them over the last few years), so you should be in good shape.   ;)

Now that I'm home from Toy Fair, I'm going to try to offer some closer (non-cropped or resized) looks at the figures that were shown...

If anyone has special requests on figures, let me know and I will go back through the camera and see what I might have.

I'm most interested in more detailed pics of the AT-TE if you've got 'em.  Thanks!

Within the last 24 hours I picked up the following at Targets in Minneapolis area:

 - New Orange Legends Pit Droids
 - 4 New Evolutions sets
 - 2/3 of latest comic packs (got the Rebs in disguise, but not the Rep Commando one)

I'm also seeing an organe pauldron Legends Sandtrooper with sticker in the orange pit droid wave.  Anyone know if this is the same as the already released V4 or if its the new Evo version?  I haven't had time to look it over in any detail.

Its not sealed if that makes you feel any better  :D

OMG.  Wish I had bought one just so I could sell it at this point.  :P

Another e-mail from Sideshow:

At this time, we would like to inform you that this item is estimated to arrive into our warehouse within approximately the next 3-5 days.

Sweet!  8)

Got the same note - glad to see they are cutting down the time gap from order to delivery!

Got mine ordered just fine too. The $90 price tag really stinks, but at least I had some reward points to use on it. If the armored figures are going to all be this pricey, I don't think I'll be too worried about picking very many others.

Got mine.  Was surprised to see how easy it was this time - just check the box, log in, and you're done!

Was even more surprised by the $90 price tag.   >:( I reallllllly want his figure, so I splurged, but I'm exiting the line if this is the new ongoing cost.
