I picked up 3 more Wolffes at Target last night, but no sign of any more Dooms.  :(

Was just reading last night about how the band Mastodon were cast as Wildling extras in Sunday's episode. Saw a cool shot of them posing with John and Ed. Just another reason to love this show!

I realize there are a lot of things people like about this show...the character development, the plot twists, the deft use of nuance and misdirection, but for me it just doesn't get any better than the last 20 minutes of last night's episode.

Giants fighting zombies?!? Please and thank you!

That was frigging excellent. John and the Thenn fighting side by side, white walkers with armor, army of the undead, Valyrian steel FTW...just great stuff all around. That was way more intense than a WD style walker attack...those things could really move!

The only other thing I even remember from the episode was Tyrion and Daenerys' chat, which was also all kinds of awesome but for different reasons.

Oh, and Arya got a stylin' new haircut.  :D

I saw the Taxi Driver figure at TRU yesterday. Of all their properties, I just don't get this one. Just doesn't seem worth the effort for one figure.

Sigh...how can I say no to an Amy Poehler action figure?

I would have been all over this if I didn't have to sleep at night.   ::)

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.
