Other Toy Lines / Re: Pogs Anyone?

I was in Target on Sunday and overheard a guy talking about them.  Apparently Target is selling some in the game section but I didn't go look.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: '06 Holiday Figure
« on: September 15, 2006, 11:34 AM »
I loved the C-3PO/R2 pack as well as Yoda.  The Jawas were a little weak but still nice enough that I bought a set.  The Vader last year, though, was a slap in the face.

I passed.  I won't be back for more holiday figures unless Hasbro steps up and shows some cleverness like they did with the first two releases.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Imperial Shuttle??
« on: September 15, 2006, 11:31 AM »
Target also has more stores than TRU.  Target has about 1300 US stores while TRU is down to 587.  According to Hasbro's 2005 numbers they sell 24% of their goods to Wal-Mart and TRU and Target are tied for second at 12% each.

It's possible that, just based on the number of retail outlets, Target can move more of an exclusive than TRU can.  That lowers the price. 

The other thing about the AT-AT, for comparison, is that that vehicle still has the sound feature, has more moving parts and comes with 2 figures now as well.  I'd think that the Falcon is a better comparison and that sells for the same or a little less than what the Shuttle will be this time around.

I don't know if this will be a Black Friday item but I found it odd that Hasbro didn't take the opportunity to announce it this week when they started pimping out all the other Target exclusives for this fall.  A Black Friday sale was the only thing I could come up with for it's absence from that list.  If Matt's saying no, then it probably won't be released then.  I just can't explain why Hasbro isn't shouting about it.  Especially when they could use it in a Friday Q&A; "See, we do make vehicles.  Here's a great big ship for $60.  So, quit-yer-bitchin'!"

Nice!  I'm not sure if I'd seen that poster before.

I should rip that VHS to DVD and use that for the cover art.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: New Line has license for 'The Hobbit'
« on: September 11, 2006, 06:11 PM »
I don't think I'd want to see the Hobbit done if Jackson doesn't direct it.  He gets the story, understands it.  Even though some people disagreed with his adaptation of LOTR it's absolutely incredible and I don't know if another director could have done it.

Maybe Spielberg or Cameron or Ridley Scott...someone on that level maybe.  But, if Spielberg directed I'd be too afraid that Tom Hanks would end up in the film.   ;D

Adam, did you have those at the store yesterday?  You should have pimped them out at the meeting.
