Those are all good points and I have no idea why I feel the need to revert back and bring my old Target employee wounds to the surface.

I will say that when I was a toy team lead for Target I "hated" the hot wheel guys and the toy scalpers so sometimes you just assume anyone and everyone, especially when they know a DPCI for an item not on the floor is one of  those.

Ok all done. Time to forget my Target years again............................. done.

Five Target's yesterday and not one new item on shelves. No Shuttle in back room at any of them.
Wal-Mart? Sha! I don't even go there right now and there's no reason to.

The other thing Target will do is if they are sending the majority of a reset on one truck, they will trap it onto pallets so that when they reset they can just bring that whole pallet out to fill the aisle it's for, meaning they don't backstock it to a shelf like they normally would. So if you type the numbers in a price scanner or have a red shirt check backroom locations they will show none even though they really do have it.

Jus an FYI. TOYS is set to reset the week of July 31. Not the action figure aisle specifically. It takes more than one day to do the whole set so when they decide to do the action figure aisle will vary. Some stores will do there's already because the had an early reset day or the aisle looked so bad and they were ahead of schedule on other sets. Leaked set dates are not street dates.

I will continue to watch the new episodes, but it is pretty bad compared to the Fox days. I don't laugh much.

Maybe when they were coming up with a price they got confused that the ship and the playset were two different $40 toys and came up with $80?  ;) I seriously just can't wrap my head around that price.

No matter how hard I try I just can't see $80 worth of toy here. I plan on passing. We'll see though once I can actually look at one in a store.

I just have a giant Excel spreadsheet with everything in alphabetical order and what line it's from, etc. That way when I can't remember if I own something or a version of something I can look it up that way. Not ideal, but better than nothing and once you have it originally done it's easy to update.

They should be under a new DPCI. The pick label on the case is correct which is how I got them to pull it, but the barcode on the toys are tied to the old DPCI. The other two in the case he brought out were the Cad Bane and the Anakin one so I'm sure whoever tied the UPC to the old DPCI at the Target headquarters thought they were a part of the old line.

Picked up the Y Wing Scout Bomber w/ Clone Trooper Pilot and the Republic Scout Speeder w/ ARF Trooper at Target today by using the DPCI Jedi mind trick. They scan with the old deluxe DPCI for the clearance price of $13.08. Cool to save money but not going to be cool when the computer counts never change for them to order more.

So.....Spawn was on this morning while I was getting ready and it got me thinking.  Why no remake on that turd?

That is a great question. The movie was horrendous and in this era of every comic book getting a movie/another movie why not Spawn with a good script?

I'm still trying to determine if IG88 and Boba Fett Sideshow figs or continuing to be married. Still too close to say yet.

Do we know for sure what other sets of these are "in stores" now besides "Ass. on Geo." and "Cad's Escape"? ie are the other 4 Jeff has listed supposed to be out now?

Does anyone watch the WSOP on TV? Why in the world do they think we want to watch it live this year? I have enjoyed this in years past where you get to see it taped and editted, but watching them fold around to the blinds the whole time is crazy boring to me.

Now reading "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick.

San Francisco lies under a cloud of radioactive dust. People live in half-deserted apartment buildings, and keep electric animals as pets because so many real animals have died. Most people emigrate to Mars - unless they have a job to do on Earth. Like Rick Deckard - android killer for the police and owner of an electric sheep. This week he has to find, identify, and kill six androids which have escaped from Mars. They're machines, but they look and sound and think like humans - clever, dangerous humans. They will be hard to kill. The film Blade Runner was based on this famous novel.

Just getting ready to start this now as well.
