Revenge of the Sith / Basic figures $7.99 at Target?
« on: March 29, 2005, 10:21 AM »
Ok - so I went into a Target this morning on the way into work to see if I could repeat my success last night and use my "Jedi Mind Trick" to get an employee to bring stuff out when they shouldn't.

It worked last night with the Deluxe figures so why not this morning in a different store for the Collection 2 stuff?

Well - while I was waiting for the person to return from the stock-room (albeit empty handed) - I noticed that they had new pegs up that were labelled simply: "SW Figure" - the price was $7.99 and the DPCI was 087-06-1283....

Jeff - does your contact at Target know anything about this? Is this a special DPCI number for the new figures for April 2nd only and then they'll return to the $5.99 price?

I just got my $1 off coupon in the mail yesterday and I would prefer that it help me bring the figures down from $5.99 to $4.99, but I'm NOT going to buy them at Target if it means brining the price down from $7.99 to $6.99 - screw that **** - I'll go get them over at TRU for $5.99!

Jocasta's Reading Room / ROTS Comics Out Now!
« on: March 28, 2005, 02:25 PM »
Went into Borders Books near where I work at lunch time and I was able to pick up issues 1 and 2 of the comic book adaptation of ROTS.

I also grabbed issue 1 of the General Grevious series.

Does anyone know if Obsession #4 or #5 has come out yet - they didn't have either in so my guess is no - but I've missed things relying solely on them before...

Revenge of the Sith / Assault Vehicle Assortment
« on: March 7, 2005, 10:26 AM »
I apologize if there is a duplicate thread already dedicated to these vehicles... I didn't see one, but admittedly, I didn't look very hard either...

Anyway - on a whim this morning I hit the Target in Brick, NJ on my way to work. I wanted to see if there was a chance that our Targets were going to see the Mid-size vehicles early just like I read in Matt's report from Friday.

It turns out, I hit the jackpot! I was able to get two of Grevious' Wheel Bike, 2 Obi-Wan Starfighters and one Droid Tri-Fighter.

I don't know why there was multiples of the first two and not of the Droid fighter. I went into the store right when it opened at 8AM so I don't think that there was anyone who could have hit-up the stuff before me.

When I get home tonight I'll open up the wheel bike and snap a couple of pics and post them here.

This same Target also had the EPIII Galactic Heroes asst.

Ok - so now we've seen a carded sample of Darth Vader's Medical Droid (#37) which is up on eBay. However, if you take a look at the posted checklist. Figure #37 should have been a CloneTrooper.

Check it out here: GalacticHunter Basic Figure Checklist

So what gives? My only conclusion can be that the checklist graphic is from an early draft that has since been revised and should no longer be considered THE list of figures since we already know that:

#37 = Vader's Medical Droid (NOT Clone Trooper)
#38 = AT-TE Gunner (NOT Nemoidian Warrior)
#39 = Pollis Massan (NOT Wookie Warrior)
#40 = Mas Amedda (NOT Destroyer Droid)
