The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Recent Purchases

SLP Target has had three 6" on their three pegs for at least two weeks and no restock so I don't know that will work. Angers me greatly

Recently purchased and received today a loose Rebel Transport. I've always wanted one but just never have picked it up even though they aren't that pricey. I believe it is complete with all decals with the exception it only came with four backpacks and two gas masks (one of each would have been good enough for me). Even got the instructions that had been gnawed on by some sort of rodent.

Me too. I am going to need to become an expert on the blind bag fondling though.

Anybody watch the slash show The Following? Well, Emily Kinney aka Beth was on it as a psycho girl who ultimately was killed at the end. Thought it notable she was moonlighting from Walking Dead in her character's absence.

Didn't expect "Following" spoilers in this thread.

My take: Hasbro's assortments aren't good. Retailers have done a bad job ordering. I don't care why since clearly I'm not smart enough to know why. And it sucks because I hate the fact you can only get figs any more by ordering online. The end. Up yours Hasbro, Target, WM, KM, TRU

Don't know if this is anyone's cup of tea, but I saw wave 5 of the mini mates at TRU today. Including TRU exclusive sets, one with Abraham and one with Eugene.

Got my Luke Bespin in the mail today from HTS. I really like him. I wish so much that these were cheaper so the line had a better chance of survival.

Best offered someone on ebay for a color Negan and they accepted cheaper than I was expecting so he arrived today. Now I just need to read like 60 more comics and I will get to his character.

Used SPRING14 promocode at HTS tonight to score Bespin Luke and Obi-Wan for $15.99 each, plus free shipping.  8)

I'm just tired of waiting for these to hit Target and I know I'll never get to TRU early enough to score their random 1 case when it arrives. This seemed like too good a deal to pass up. Now I just need that $%* Stormtrooper!

Thanks for the tip! Nice to get Luke for less than retail.

I liked everything about last night's episode. I do think these last three episodes need to ramp it up, but the last bunch of episodes have made me care about numerous characters this second half of the season I didn't care much about before. When they kill off Beth I'm going to care now.

And both Beth disappearing and Daryl joining the creepy red neck group left me with a bad feeling in my stomach.

Package at the door when I came home today. All's well that ends well.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions

Just thought I'd mention this because if I was a lot more wealthy I would like to have known, but there is a UK seller on ebay right now with some pretty nice custom wave 2 figures of both Droids and Ewoks up for auction right now. All out of my price range but pretty cool to see.

Lady at the post office says the carrier on that day said "he did not leave a package at my house, but remembers leaving one at a similar address number possibly with the numbers jumbled". So "it probably will show up". It didn't today. So I will let next week go by and if it doesn't I will probably call again and ask if they can do anything. Doubt they will even with him saying he didn't leave it for me. Not sure it should take more than a couple days if the wrong person put it back out for the mail man to grab, but I am impatient sometimes so hopefully it will come.

Really a USPS question, but I did buy off ebay. Anyone ever have a package marked as "delivered" in tracking but not get it? Anything I can do about it?

I have and the post office and ebay both said, sucks for you, it says delivered. On the bright side, the package showed up a month later.

This is what I expect to happen. The sucks for you part that is. Tracking thing sort of sucks then. I had called the post office and they said they would talk to the mail man and see if he remembered but that he didn't have a phone to call so it would be when he got back. So I saw a mail man coming today but it wasn't the normal guy and he said he didn't deliver to my neighborhood yesterday so I am going to call again and see if the first person I talked to has talked to the guy from Thursday. Not sure what I just typed. Anyway I don't have high hopes, but we will see. At least it was only a grand total of $13 and not Star Wars.
