I was psyched to find these yesterday at Target. I bought 16...got 8 different ones, 5 dupes I didn't have to open and 3 extra Maggie/Snowballs.

Hope to complete the set in the next couple of days. These are a lot harder to feel your way around than the last series.

I hit 5 Targets, 4 Walmarts and a TRU yesterday and nary a single Simpsons mini-figure to be found anywhere.  :(

I was hoping these would be easier to find than Hasbro stuff.

Today is the Day! (great band, btw)


Seems like I've been waiting forever for these Simpsons figures to be released. I can't wait to start making the rounds at lunch.

Curious if TRU and Walmart will carry them starting today as well.

Does anyone have any good bag groping tips for this new batch?  :D

Big Ass Striker Eureka arrived yesterday. Aside from not being able to get his "back pods" to stay on right, I love it.

Wondering if they will get around to Crimson Typhoon in this scale. That would be epic!

I finally, finally found a lone Bossk today on the pegs at Walmart way outside town. Now it's back to Anakin and the Clone Trooper as the only 2 figures I've never seen in a store.

Hasbro would probably say "Hey, it's more screen accurate without wheels!"

They are not killing the line. Just the cardback.

Does this imply a new DPCI # or do we think the current one will carry over for the Vader/Ahsoka set?

Big time changes from the books in last night's episode.  I can already hear the book purist ******** ranting and raving.  Ultimately, I believe the books and show will end up in generally the same spot, they just have to take different paths to get there and I'm ok with that.  I think I know where they're going with Sansa, Brienne and Pod, but it's going to be tough to watch if they keep certain book aspects and apply them to Sansa.

Naah, i don't think they will do that to her. I think that was more specific to the particular person and situation. Having Sansa in that role changes things significantly, IMO.

But yeah, they are really all over the map making changes.

I hate to keep asking stupid questions every week, but I am having trouble figuring out Littlefinger's interest in wedding off Sansa to the Boltons. He doesn't seem to be getting anything directly out of the deal, and you'd think he would hate them for killing Catelyn. He implies revenge in his brief conversation with Sansa but WTF is she supposed to do there? She's probably the last person in the whole story who would be capable of evening that score. Plus doesn't he have the hots for her too?

What a waste of a perfectly good potential nude scene for Natalie Dormer.  :(

Loved FrankenMountain!

Yeah, I find the early Target clearance to be an interesting move for a number of reasons. Were there that few made or did the time just run out on these with the coming Sept relaunch? How long until Walmart and TRU follow suit? Will we ever see these show up at places like 5 Below or TJ MAXX?

It certainly was a brief window where these things hit. I'm sure they will re-pack most of the Rebels figures in future waves, but I can definitely see some guys like the Jedi Temple Guard falling off the radar for awhile.

Picked up a slew of Rebels figures from Target today for $2.98 a pop. I have no idea what they are doing, but this is a great deal.

That's an impressive array there, Rob...well done.

I saw the Karate Kid figures for the first time yesterday at TRU. Not anything I'd consider picking up, but they looked pretty decent.

Check your Target stores as it appears that this assort. is on clearance at many locations - down to as little at $2.98 each.

I can confirm this...I bought an X-Wing Pilot Luke last night for $2.98. I thought it must be a random fluke but maybe not.

I have only seen this at one store, and that was the only figure they had, but it's definitely got me interested in checking around now.
