The whole game was decided on the Harrison TD at the end of the first half...  If the Cardinals just manage a FG there, they win. Hell, if Fitzgerald just makes the tackle at the half inch line they'd have won.

Actually because of the 15 yard personal foul on Arizona on the play, the Steelers would have got half the distance to the goal and the half can't end on a defensive penalty so they Steelers would have had one play to score from the foot line. So it wasn't quite as simple as "if Fitzgerald just makes the tackle".

Oh, and the price is up to $7.99 here as well, which really does stink.

Ya and the figures are very scrawny.  I'm just not seeing $8 in any of these figures.

Be glad they aren't $8.79 like they are at my nearest Target.

If this thing turns out to be a "Previews" exclusive then the price seems about right. I agree I won't buy it, but all that stuff is a rip off so I wouldn't be surprised. If it's on the shelf at Target its one thing, but a comic store item could go for that much.

I picked up this wave yesterday and I think the Padme and the MagnaGuard are great figs. The CW MagnaGuard is better than the regular ROTS version I think.

I see this is up for preorder at BBTS, but the price is $74.99.  I wonder if this is exclusive (which I guess is likely since it doesn't fit into the $20 pricepoint assortment).  Otherwise, that's pretty pricey for a regular release.

$75??? What the heck kinda price is that? I hope that's right though because then I WON'T be tempted to buy it any more.

I don't know if they just went down to this price or if I just happened across one that was found later in the pricing process, but I picked up the CW LEGO Republic Fighter Tank for 75% off clearance, $12.48 at Target yesterday. So keep your eyes open and don't ignore stuff in the clearance section just because its CW and you don't think it should be on clearance already like I almost did.

Exact opposite for me. The box with the Death Star skeleton and the fact that it is a Clone ship when they are helping hunt the Jedi instead of when they are with the Jedi makes me want it. I need someone to talk me out of it because I can't afford it.

I didn't need to see that. I have enough ARC 170s, but I am a huge sucker for Republic vehicles turned sterile matte colors by the Empire. I don't know how I'm not going to need one of these.

General theory about modern toys:  nothing is rare. 

Waiting will benefit you 99 times out of 100.  You'll still spend less when that one item goes through the roof.  If it made it to target, it'll be half its retail price on ebay within 2 years. ;)

Those are all good points except you are not taking into consideration the "my impatience" aspect of things.  :-\

I wish I knew how limited the "only at Target" MMs were going to be. I can't decide if I should buy all five of the new ones or not and I'd like to know how much time I have to make that decision.

I was looking at the Solar Sailor set at TRU yesterday and I have to say it was very disappointing. Not sure how they could have improved it, but.....

I bought the Teebo, Bossk, and Snowtrooper this morning. All with "only at Target" stickers.

I left the Biggs and Shocktrooper also with "only at Target" stickers.

And they had Rex, C3PO, and Cody with "only at Target" stickers even though they have been released before. I compared the "new" Rex with the old one and it looked like it had very small paint variations.

Thanks Jayson.

That figures that the case that is hitting around here has to be the one without the fig I really want. Oh well.
