That's nice of them in a way, but it makes the coupon sorta redundant.

Well, I'm in the group that is hoping that maybe I'll be able to get a price adjustment after the fact...

Say I buy all my figures on 4/2 for $5.99 minus the $1 coupon = $4.99 each, right?

My receipt should look something like this:

087-06-1263     StarWars E3 C1     239.60
                         40 @ $5.99 each
087-06-1328     StarWars E3 C2     269.55
                         45 @ $5.99 each
                         Store Promo          -85.00

Well, what if you take the receipt to the CS desk on 4/3 and they can give you an adjustment from $5.99 to the sale price of $4.99?  It would then be possible that you may be able to save yet another dollar...

The thought of $3.99 RotS figures ($4.99 minus the $1 dollar coupon) is simply jaw-dropping...  :o

It may not work, but if the figures do turn out to be on sale I am totally going to try it.   ;)

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Wal-Mart "Early Bird" Exclusive
« on: March 30, 2005, 10:00 AM »
When I first was reading of a basic "line relaunch" I had nightmares of the GI Joe Sigma Six line.

That's my first thought too, Brian.  But, I'm not entirely convinced they won't pull a scale switcheroo on us... Next January is a long way away...  :-\

I guess even with this news of a new/relaunched/whatever figure line, I am still not excited by the Early Bird news.

If the RS report is true, well then it means we are getting "new" ANH Luke, Leia, Chewie, and R2 as a part of the "relaunched" line...   more resculpts we dont need especially since we just got the BEST versions of those figures last year as vOTC.   ::)

Plus, I'm really not happy that in order to start collecting a brand new line that won't be out for 9 months, I have to make a special trip to a Wal-Mart 40 minutes away for the "tent" event...  talk about a rip-off way to get you to spend more money than you planned!  >:(

I'll be even MORE pissed when next January these "relaunched" figures are everywhere and I'll wonder why the heck it was so important to buy the damn EB kit waaaay back in April.   >:(

Gah, I'm done now or this will just turn into more ranting about what a stupid idea this is...


Yeah, maybe you guys do spend a LOT of $$$, but I'd like to thank you big-spenders...

If it weren't for my ability to show off that thread and say things like:

"Yeah honey, I know $1600 a year on SW toys sounds like a lot, but there's this guy Morgbug at JD who spent $7500 and another guy Dale who spent $9500!  Imagine if I'd spent that much on stuff..."

I'd spend a lot more time in the doghouse because of my love for little plastic figures...

So, thanks to you guys, I get out of the "hot water" I was previously in and everybody wins!   ;)


Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Coupon... Some hope?
« on: March 29, 2005, 11:27 PM »
I don't hold a Target card, nor do I ever get anything from them in the mail, yet I got one, so yay me.

This is a mystery to me. ???

You DO have an Insider subscription, yes?

I think it's been mentioned elsewhere that they can somehow just track who's purchased stuff at Target stores with the debit or credit cards, and send them out the coupon. 

Yeah, like maybe someone got an e-mail directly from TARGET 2 weeks ago that explained exactly how they decided how to send out the coupons...   :P

*cough * cough *

If you are NOT a Target Visa card holder then there is a 100% chance Target got your info from the Fan Club and Lucasfilm...  ;)

One thing I hope they not doing is using the address that hypespace has for you.

Sorry, DK but that is EXACTLY where Target got the info from...


Other Collectibles / Re: M-pire figure 2-pack assortment?
« on: March 29, 2005, 11:11 PM »
I'm going to go ahead and call this an "other collectible"...

(and not one I'm interested at that  :P)


I think Scott's comment was directed at this guy...  ::)

What about the early leaks a few of us were lucky enough to score?  Does that technically count, since they're supposed to be April 2nd releases?

As for my estimate, I can bring it down by about $25 since I was lucky enough to get the Target coupon in the mail today.   :)

I'll definitely be headed to Target to get the most out of my coupon...


Revenge of the Sith / Re: "Evolutions" assortment...
« on: March 29, 2005, 03:19 PM »
How about

Senator or Chancellor Palpatine
Holo Sidious (repack from EpI line perhaps?)
ROTJ Palpatine

Yeah, see a Ep1 Palpy / Ep2 Palpy / Ep3 Sidious would have made a lot more sense then the Maul - Dooku - Sidious pack they are doing...


Revenge of the Sith / Re: Basic figures $7.99 at Target?
« on: March 29, 2005, 01:59 PM »
Hey Pete,

I heard back from my Target Contact and the #087-06-1283 is definately for the Jedi Force figures, not the Ep3 basic figures.

Both of the Basic Figure DPCIs are scanning at $5.99 today...

Wow, that was fast.

Hey Dale, where's that "sweeping it under the rug" smilie?



Revenge of the Sith / Re: Basic figures $7.99 at Target?
« on: March 29, 2005, 10:31 AM »
I believe that the "SW Figure" listed under DPCI "087-06-1283" is for the Jedi Force figures.

The Ep3 basic figures should be under:
Collection 1 = 087-06-1263
Collection 2 = 087-06-1328

I'll send a note to my inside guy and see if he can confirm that, but for right now I've heard nothing about a $7.99 for basic figures at Target...  :-\


Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Deluxe Figures
« on: March 29, 2005, 09:53 AM »
Deluxe Wave 3:

Clone Troopers
Crab Droid (w/Walking Action, like the CW Spider Droid)
Stass Allie w/Speederbike (not sure if it's a BARC or regular bike)
NEW Spider Droid

Due in June/July...

No pictures yet, just the descriptions were passed along.

I'm curious to see what "Clone Troopers" means...  :)


Revenge of the Sith / Re: "Evolutions" assortment...
« on: March 29, 2005, 09:50 AM »
How about one more Evolutions set:

Sith Dudes:
Darth Maul (Ep1)
Darth Tyranus (Ep2)
Darth Sidious (Ep3)

No pictures yet, but it should be headed your way sometime in August...


Revenge of the Sith / Re: Battle Packs (5 figure sets)
« on: March 29, 2005, 09:47 AM »
Too bad there isn't an OT 5-pack so we could get Cantina Han, Mechanic Chewie, Slave Leia, PotJ Ben, and CommTech Luke again too...   ::)

Well, there IS an OT set...

Looks like:
Chewie - ??
Stormtrooper - CommTech?
Vader - ??
Luke - Saga Throne Roon
Han - Saga Endor

Filled full of re-packs, but at least it's a GOOD sign that the OT won't be totally forgotten this year...  ;)

I got my EE catalog in the mail yesterday too, and wow is that Anakin sure creepy.

Plus it gives me just a glimmer of hope that when this franchise is watered down enough and struggling for new figures, we just might end up with the Uncle Owen (Imperial Attack) and Aunt Beru (Imperial Attack) figures we've always wanted.    :P
