Chicago's pretty white at the moment.  At least 6-8" down already and projecting blizzard conditions from 4pm - 9pm tonight.  Can easily see 1.5-2' by the time it's all done.

Good luck East coast, it's coming your way next.

I'll be damned if I don't have about a foot so far near Wrigley Field.

My wife is here this weekend, supposed to fly to New Hampshire tomorrow just in time for the same storm to drop a foot there.

I've managed to pick up everything except the Bossk / IG-88 pack.  Not bad for the price.

Oh, wow - the guy who has a huge financial interest in these movies succeeding assures us that it's "worth the wait"?  Whew!  I'm sure he'd totally tell us the truth if he thought they were terrible...   :P

That in and of itself doesn't mean he's not right!

You're saying Seahawks/Broncos is less interesting than Seahawks/Patriots?  Not a huge difference IMO.  I don't like repeat performances, so not a fan of Seattle going again and there isn't a single team I wouldn't swap out the Patriots for.  Maybe Oakland?  Hopefully next year we'll get some new blood in the mix.

I wouldn't count on too much new blood in the mix.  All the parity that the NFL tried to establish with the salary cap went right out the windows when fantasy football took over and the league started favoring rules that promoted scoring and quarterbacks.  Now you either have a really good or great one, or you suck and are looking for a really great one.

We'll get new blood soon enough, but it's probably more of a 3 year window when Brady, Brees, and Manning are all done.  And even then it won't change too much year to year until someone starts making it harder on the QB's.

I was getting ready to head down to the State street location near the Target today and my buddy actually found me a pair at Toys R Us last night.  Thanks for the heads up either way!

General FYI to Chicago members: downtown Walgreens are swimming in Yoda wave right now. One yoda still at brown like Chicago stop Walgreens and TIE and others basically everywhere else.

Where other than the Brown Line Chicago stop? I've been hitting up the store on North Michigan, in Streeterville by the AMC, and in the Wrigley Building pretty much every day, including today at N. Michigan, and I can't find jack!

I stopped at a Target in New Hampshire yesterday - $12.99 for Black Series figures.

Other Toy Lines / Re: 2015: What Are You Collecting?

I'm still doing Hasbro like always.  I collect Gentle Giant SW mini-busts.

I also collect OT Star Wars Lego, and am collecting a bunch of 80's and 90's Lego from the space, castle, and pirates lines.

I've also gotten hooked on the Super 7 ReAction line.

We can find a speck on mars but not that Jet that crashed in the ocean?

It took 11 and a half years to find the speck on Mars and it's not at the bottom of an ocean.

I think hasbro is trying to kill the star wars line slowly in favor of their products

In favor of what, specifically?

I finally got charged for this the other day.. I think it's supposed to arrive today or tomorrow.

I'm not sure why I wanted this, but I bought it... the prices are out of control.

I'm going to guess:
$7 - 3.75" 5POA line
$15 - 3.75" premium collector line

I'm not so sure it'll get pricier. 

TBS are now $14.29 at my Target

I stand corrected, at the moment.  Haven't seen those prices around here yet.

If this is what happens, it's going to drag sales down, which will give them the excuse to ditch the higher-quality figures.

My big question is, what's the plan for the full movie line.  Will those be nicer or 5-POA type things..

We should wait before we get all panicky about it.  There were Targets around here that went up to $12.49 a few years ago but it didn't stick, I think they're $10.99 at the moment, but have also been $11.49 at points.  They test prices and see how things move.  It doesn't necessarily indicate a change in MSRP or a price shift across the country just because someone spotted it like that in one store.

But who the hell knows...
