I also found Han Taun Taun at Target!

Nice score.  Did you happen to notice if the DPCI is different from the Jabba/Scout Troopers?

It is the same - mine rang up today for $24.99. (Found over lunch at Target)

Realize I am probably the only one who cares, but I found Series 2 of the Building Set figures today at Gamestop. There are 8 total in this wave, two humans (Rick and Tyreese) and a bunch of cool zombies, including Merle. Hopefully this means the slew of cool new Building Sets they showed off at Toy Fair will be arriving soon.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases

Capping an unbelievably lucky series of lunch hour toy runs, I found a fresh case of the new Black Series guys at TRU today. I grabbed both Rexes, both Wolffes, and the lone Doom. Definitely going to need another Doom to open, I love the vivid color scheme, hokey or not.

Best part was they all rang up for $9.99 each still...power to the people!   ;)

Hot damn, found a full fresh case of the new Emperor wave at Target over lunch today.  ;D It was hard to comprehend seeing new stuff on the pegs for a second, but I did not hesitate to snatch them up. Very thankful not to have to deal with that split case nonsense too. One fell swoop and no army builders in this wave.

Happy hunting to all~

Picked up a Bespin Han at Target for $1.94 cause why not, eh?

Doesn't quite beat the $1.00 Clone Wars figures I found at one point on a Walmart clearance aisle, but it's pretty good.

I didn't watch, but I hope Biff, Hal, and Chris Elliot made appearances this past week. I assume, without checking, that Larry Bud is dead.

Oh crap, there's a blue one too?!?!

Amazing...great find and now on my list as well.

Best I can tell Target is getting ONE new figure each. Today I picked up Dutch, Rex, and Wolffe all at different Targets and that one figure was all they each had.

Just like HTS. Putting one new figure up per day, or every other day since nothing new went up today.

they're waiting for me to break down and order Rex, and only after that will the other clones be listed.  ::)

I've been trying to hold off all week but they seem content to wait me out. Bastages.

My local Targets each had a lone Hoth Luke. Literally the worst/boringest figure in the whole wave.  >:(

LOL, PayPal does suck. Wait til their split from eBay is complete...going to be even worse soon.

My latest rant is yet another series of revisions to their seller fees that has all but crippled my side business. Only 20 free listings per month now and no more free BIN listings for DVD's and videos.

I don't understand why they simultaneously push members to sell more and then make it prohibitive for them to do so.

Has anyone seen/picked up the Kwik-E-Mart set yet? Is it even out? We don't have Lego stores around here so I am SOL on this one.

Thanks for the offer again!

I grabbed ahsoka's droid off ebay last night for a reasonable price.

What's the actual name of this droid? I need one too!

Nice! I still want an opener of that Slave I.

I bought a carded Yularen at a local comicon last week for $5. Great fodder for custom Clone officers...

John, Arya, Sansa, Rickon, Bran, Daenerys, Tyrion, Varys, Sam, Grey Worm. At this point, it's easier to name the people I DON'T want to see horribly mutilated/disemboweled/burned alive on this show. What a wretched universe of filth and depravity...they may as well subtitle the show "Or How the Stark family gets crapped on repeatedly with no recriminations"  >:(

I don't think I've been so mad since the Red Wedding. You just can't do Sansa like that...that was super crappy. My wife and I were both shouting at the screen "someone DO something!" but Theon is a useless POS and I guess Brienne is content to just kick it back at the inn with Pod. Ugh, what a horrible downer ending.

And I guess Baelish is pretty much straight up using her just to position himself as Warden of the North. Some uncle.

I did like Tyrion and Jorah bonding over their Daddy issues.

After all the anticipation, it was hard not to feel let-down by the 5 minute Sand Snake fray. I was hoping they would have been a bit more bad-ass. At least kill Bronn or something.

Tommen is utterly and completely worthless as a human being. What a *****.

Hahahaha...that's nuts! Ultimate buyer's remorse.

The nearest one of these Go Games kiosks is over 70 miles away...probably not worth it for me. But tempting.

I think Ovechkin's legacy is on the line tonight. Go Washington!

I guess he failed to back-up his guarantee last night.  I missed the game as I was at a concert so I'll have to watch the 'tape' later.

Picks for the Finals:  Rangers v. Blackhawks

Meh, he scored, so he's off the hook. Even the NBC Analyst gave him props. For a change, Caps fans can't really put the blame on him, or Holtby, in this series. Just too much possession time for the Rangers.
