I was surprised to find this next wave of GH at Walmart during Midnight Madness. 

I saw the signs of this wave (the OT sets with the RotS packaging) at a few stores, but none of the new sets anywhere.  I wasn't really expecting them to be out so soon, I was thinking next month...

Guess I will have to add them to the official "find this stuff" list.

Did you grab those too Jeff?

Nah, far too much other stuff to spend my $$ on today...

What the hell is up with  the 10-degrees-below-zero erect nipple on the battle droid?

It is for you to attach the "blast effect" to make it look like "he done got shot"!

Target cup sets were hit or miss around these parts, but the Micro Assortments were plentiful...

I happily grabbed my 3 sets - I like the Clone Cup set the best because he was one re-packaged figure that I didn't mind buying!    ;)

Anybody else get lucky?

Yeah I did and so did 4 others in MN :)

Count me in as another one of the lucky MN guys.  The one I was handed was minty-mint, so I was very happy to be able to get one so nice. 

I ordered a second off Amazon today to score my opener, no fuss no muss and no risking the fact that TRU may not have them come the 10th...  :)

So, I'm really not interested in this set I guess.    :-\

I'm not a "one of everything" guy anymore, so I can pass on this and hope that when the new line is launched that I will be able to pick these figures up in a different form (like single carded).  Of course, that strategy could totally back-fire on me and 9 months from now I'll be kicking myself for NOT picking it up...


OK, I bought it...  Yeah, despite what I said about not being a "one of everthing" guy anymore, that ******* OCD kicked in again.  :-[

The cashier at Target today said to me as I wheeled up my cart full of 50+ RotS basic figures, "You're buying ALL of these figures?"

My wife (who came along for the ride) said "He's got a disease for these things  ::), " and then the cashier and my wife shared a laugh (at my expense). 

If they only KNEW how right they were.  Maybe I do need to find a 12-step progam for my love of these little plastic figures...  :-\

Anyway, I figure now I've got one if I want it.  I can think it over and if I change my mind over the next few days, I can always sell it here or return it.  ;)


Here's how I faired today...
Guess total = $576.52

Actual Total = $527.44

My total was a bit smaller that I thought -

I saved some on the fact that there were only Figures 1-32 here in MN (that I saw), so it dropped me by 15 figures ($75 or so).  Plus, I got the Target coupon (another $20 savings).

However, I made up part of the the difference by grabbing the Wal-Mart EB Kit...  ::)

I know, I know - I'm a hippocrite because I said I didn't want it but the damn OCD kicked in.  I can always sell it later/return it if I change my mind.  :-\

Sorry Jeff.  I just think the Twins "magic" is gonna run out.  They've lost some more key people, just like Oakland did last season and their run ended as well.  I just really like what the Tribe has going right now.  I think they could end up being the new Twins. 

Yeah, the scary part is I can see it too... the Indians are a bigger threat this year than they have been in the past 2-3 years.

Better to not believe it and pretend it can't happen since it's only the first month of the season.  I just can't start bad mouthing my boys so early in the year, ya know?   ;)

Go Twins!

Just got back after whirlwind trip aorund the metro

Last night Jeff, Paul and myself went to TRU:

Holo Yoda (we each got 1 and were the last 3 there)
Blue Guard x2

Then we headed to a 24 Hour Wally World (non-tent)

Jeff took pictures of us at the stores, and the 501st was at TRU so we should be able to get some photo evidence

Here we go...

All and all, a pretty good haul for myself!

I feel so bad for Padme.   :'(

I just know I'm going to cry when Padme... you know.

Dark Side Unleashed

I was fortunate enough to recieve a Target coupon in the mail a couple days ago and I was wondering if it is just good on the C1 & C2 figures or does it also apply to deluxe, unleashed, FB, GH, JF, etc. ?? What are the limits?

No one knows right now, we've been discussing it over in the Target Vader/Coupon Thread.  If there is an answer you'll find it there...

if anyone is going to the Gaithersburgh MD TRU tonite, 355/frederick rd.,
i'll be the guy in the black Hotwheels ball cap! give a shout out if you see me.

If you're trying to organize with other local collectors, you may have more luck posting this in the Store Reports thread where you can start a thread for your home town/state!  ;)
