Went by a Target in STL today, they had set up the aisle and had the mid size vehicles out, $24.99 each. No problems scanning.

Also of note - there was 12 feet of shelf space for new figuers, including a lot of pegs:

12 Vintage
8 Legends
4 Clone Wars


My Target near Albany, NY had 8 pegs for Vintage, 8 for Legends, 4 for Clone wars.  I think they actually had 6 pegs for Galactic Heroes.  Not that it necessarily equates to the total volume that the lines are selling, but it sure seems to be a strange mix.

Another sorta sissy-looking Mandalorian, but I'm used to it.  I guess they're all kind of not tough looking except maybe Boba and Jango.


I can not for the life of me remember his name, but he looks just like a comic I saw on Comedy Central the other day..  Down to the haircut & everything...

Found him, Shane Mauss.

Not vouching for his comedy, just that he looks like Jodo....

Nice score!  Can you post the UPC when you have a chance or PM me with it?  My Kmart will probably let it sit in the stock room for a year.

Not sure which digits is technically the UPC (hides face in shame), so here's what the bottom of the figure says:

6   (lines extend down from barcode)  53569  (more lines) 50374  (lines) 3


Does that mean its 6 53569 50374 3  ? :-[

WOOO HOOO.  Found Jodo Kast at my local K-Mart last night.  There were about 9 or so of them.  He was $8.99, which isn't bad because figures at regularly $8.49 or so at that store. 

I didn't open him yet, I had to wrap birthday presents last night...

Interesting that there's nothing packed inside the bubble, as in no advertisements for other figures etc.  He comes with his helmet, jetpack, etc.

Happy hunting!

Found the Republic Commando 2-pack today at TRU.  Very pleased that Hasbro made some Commandos.

On JTA, bottom pick, you can see in the shelf below there is a ARF Trooper on an AT-RT, and then another yellow colored walker, right?

What is that other walker?  Has legs more like an AT-ST, right?

Are these the first all-white clones with removable helmets?

Um, did it occur to you that you could offer to push the button for that person right away, making the need for them to be anywhere near a button obsolete?  Maybe it all happened too fast for that.  I rarely hear people ask for help with something like that because they are too shy or don't want to bother others.  I often hold the door and ask others what floor they want to help avoid situations just like that.


I do the same thing, if I'm the first one on, today I was 5th.  I'll frequently hit the button for my floor and ask people where they are headed, or I continue further into the elevator to make room for others.  But I can't offer to help someone when they are first on the elevator and have successfully blocked the entire doorway to the elevator (still not sure how one person managed to block a space 6 feet across, but it happened).  I don't know if its because our building is currently occupied by only a single company (or collectively we're very lazy and most people have gotten pretty good at elevator etiquette), but I regularly hear people asking others to press the button for a certain floor for them.

My point is what happened today was remarkable for how the elevator experience typically goes, and that is annoying.

146
Not sure if anyone would care, but I was at KMart yesterday and anything in their clearance section was an additional 50% off.  So the Imperial ARC fighter and Clone Wars Y-Wing, which were $52ish, were clearance priced to $42 (I think) meaning they were $21 or so.  They also had the Clone trooper helmets, the RC-R2 and a smattering of Lightsabers and Blasters.

Elevator etiquette, or lack thereof.

Case in point:

The building I work in has a cafeteria on the first floor and then a handful of floors above it.  There are three elevators (two can accomidate about 6 people, while the other can handle about 12-15). 

I arrive at work this morning and the large elevator is just opening, the first person to get on is carrying their breakfast in both hands (cup of coffee & a plate full of something...), and there about four other people getting on as well.

The first person on is only going up one floor (annoying on its own, but whatever).  They manage with some difficulty, to hit the button for their floor (their hands are full remember, and they could have asked any of the 4 people waiting to get on, who have free hands, to push the button for them, but instead they block the doorway while they struggle to extend one finger....).

Then 'breakfast hands' decides to stand less than 6 inches from the elevator buttons....  You are the first person on and you are going to block all the buttons?  So instead of trying to squeeze by to push the button for my floor, I simply ask: "Could you hit 5, please?".  No response.  Instead 'breakfast hands' moves away from the buttons....  I hear a voice behind me comment, "I guess that's a 'No.'"

Seriously are elevators that complex?  Let the people get out first.  Then move all the way on.  If the elevator is even partly full and you can't reach the buttons, ask for someone to hit the button for your floor.  If you can't hit the buttons, don't stand so close to the buttons that no one else can reach.

I think there are plenty of people who haven't had the chance to get these figures yet.  After all there are about a dozen WM for every TRU.  I'd be willing to guess that TRU represents something less than 20% of the total US sales of Vintage (WM~40%, Target~30%, everything else ~10%).  Even if those percents are off Hasbro has made it clear in the Q&As that WM and Target sell far more than TRU.

Went to my local TRU today and they didn't have the new Vintage figures out; not even peg tags for them.  They had Legacy, old & new Saga Legends and old & new TCW.  So atleast some of the stores are sticking with the street date.

Awesome.  That's a great collection of comic packs.  How come those didn't come out in stores and instead we got any of a dozen sets that frankly were nowhere near as exciting?  $15 per plus shipping is a bit steep for me right now, but hopefully I'll be able to get a couple.

Wait, does that mean it should have read 661$ ?
