Watto's Junk Yard / I have now seen everything...Bedsheet Scalping
« on: September 13, 2011, 08:06 PM »
Had a moment to kill after work tonight so I went to the local Wally and Target to check out if they had any Blu Ray swag out yet.  On my way in to Target I passed a woman with 4 shopping carts filled with Bedsheets, Boxes and other tacky looking ****.  As I was passing by she was telling her two little girls to run to the sheet aisle and see if they put out any more king size sheets.  Weird...methinks.  Anyway, it was a quick trip as they still had 9 Wooofs and 9 Endor Rebels clogging the pegs and I headed out.  As I was passing the cash registers I saw this woman checking out so I decided to head behind the register she was at for a gander...she was at over $5000 and still had two carts to go!  Wow...WTF?!??

So I just got home and was checking the Minneapolis paper's website and lo and behold I find this:

Missoni madness sweeps Target

Quote
Missoni madness swept store shelves and crashed Target's website Tuesday as the retailer launched its latest designer partnership. Missoni for Target includes everything from cardigans and ballet flats to sheets and luggage from the Italian fashion house known for its bold zig-zag and geometric designs.

And it was gone before you could say "What's Missoni?"

Fashionistas hauled away the high-style goods in carts as soon as store doors opened at stores at 8 a.m., and orders jammed and crashed the company's website, which was down for three hours Tuesday morning. Target issued this statement mid-morning, shortly before programmers got the website back up, although with limited access:

"Due to an overwhelming amount of traffic to Target.com as a result of the Missoni launch this morning, guests are unable to access the site. Providing a positive shopping experience to our guests is important to us and we are working to get the site back up as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience."

The line at the Edina SuperTarget near Southdale started shortly before the doors opened at 8 a.m., said Haley Sando, executive team leader at the store.

"I think we were a little bit blown away," Sando said. "I just don't think we were prepared for how fast things were going to go. Guests had full shopping carts, full baskets."

The hottest items: clothing and accessories, followed by towels and bedding. By 9:30 a.m., her store was "wiped out," Sando said. "People were shopping right off the flats we were bringing it out." The shopping was congenial, she said, but it left a lot of people frustrated.

The store might get more product to restock the shelves as early tonight, she said, but there were no promises.

"I heard one guest saying to another guest that she should load up her cart because she could sell it for twice as much."

Frustrated shoppers flocked to Twitter and Target Style's Facebook page to complain about people grabbing the merchandise and reselling it on eBay

Wow...the end is near people...the end is near :'(

For the last couple of years we ran an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current Star Wars Films.  Continuing the tradition and trying to finish up before Comic Con 2010, I thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You send your Wish List for 10 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After three weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  Now up, the ever expanding Expanded Universe.  If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Databank.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Feel free to list anything not seen in the movies (Comics, Novels, Video Games, TV Holiday Specials etc EXCEPT CLONE WARS).
