The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases

They don't have a spot on the floor, so they're going wherever, or back to the back of the store I'd assume.  I'm going to hit up a couple more KM's this weekend if I manage the time.  I've actually got a slightly more free Saturday to myself so I may get time to do this.

Ollies is much more on with finding them,w hich it turns out Ollies is far more numerous than I thought...  All the way to Indiana, Michigan, NY, NJ, and as far south as Georgia.  I'm shocked.  Used to only be a PA thing.  Believe they originated out this way.

Still, very east coast for the most part aside from OH, IN, and MI.  Most of the country doesn't have them to check even.  They are getting in a ton and dumping them all at once.  I have a feeling K-Mart's allotment wasn't to be out yet.

The Bullpen / Marvel "Super Awesome Me" Action Figures

Get your own Super Awesome Marvel 12" Iron Man or Captain America figure!

Quote
Think you'd look just as good as Tony Stark in an Iron Man suit? Beginning this week, you can test that theory for real.

Hasbro and 3DPlusMe are teaming on the Super Awesome Me experience, allowing kids of all ages to see their face on a customized Iron Man or Captain America action figure. The initiative launches on Friday as part of Disney Consumer Products' Marvel Super Hero September in 10 Walmart and two Sam's Club stores around the country.

Locations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston will be outfitted with special in-store scanning stations where the machine will capture the likeness of potential superheroes, folks choose between the two characters, and their Super Awesome Me toy a personalized 12-inch articulated figure with a full-color printed head for $45 will be available to pick up at Walmart stores or shipped to Sam's Club members in four weeks.

Visit SuperAwesomeMe.com for a complete list of participating stores

I wonder how long before Disney does this for Clone Troopers and/or Stormtroopers...?   :D

I hate to post it in the SotDS area, since these are new scores, but I found more of the Value-Pack Vehicle sets at my more local K-Mart tonight.  Two cases worth to be exact.  I also got to see the cases fresh to see how these are coming, and it's really random.  One case had two of the same set, while another case had 3 completely different sets.

All sets share the same UPC too, so individual searching for specific ships is pretty much not gonna happen.

I'd also point out that last night's K-Mart had two sets that tonight's K-Mart didn't have at all, and both cases from last night's find were packed with 3 unique sets.  It's a crap shoot is the point.

Likewise I just got a report from a friend at an Ollie's outlet...  I hate to even mention Ollies because they're such a local thing, it's pointless to say much about it.  HOwever they have these stacked higher than an average man stands, so yeah...  They're getting a ****load more at the slightly higher $19.99 pricepoint to K-Mart's $14.99.  They've also got the AT-AP/Swamp Speeder set, and Mando Transport/Ani Fighter set which I've yet to see at a K-Mart.

Yet again given the randomness of the cases, I imagine it's quite likely you'd find those two sets at a K-Mart on any given trip just because.

IF (and it's a huge if, because you probably don't) you have an Ollie's, I'd go now.  K-Mart too, but Ollie's has stuff just in huge piles.  K-Mart I assume is only shipping a couple cases at a time to any given store.  Ollie's is a disaster (think Big Lots, but far worse) so they can dump 'em all out and it would only improve the aisle.

Speaking of Ollie's, don't be too jealous of me for reporting this.  I have 3, and they're all an hour away and I've yet to go to one because they're an hour away.  They're great if you have one near by and you KNOW something's hitting there (like this), but at an hour from me and all out in the middle of nowhere (further than I already am) 3 different directions, I can't really get to them easily at this point.

It's a cool dealio, but K-Mart is my jam on this one.

I'm just jealous you are finding these at K-Marts at all. I spent my whole day off driving around to all the BFE K-Marts around here and none of them had ANY of these. Are they stocking them in the SW aisle, clearance aisle, or some other random location near the toy section?

I wouldn't say he's more numerous only because he isn't as heavily (heh) packed as the Scout, but he's usually who you do see if you don't see the Scout.  I have a Target that he's all there is from TBS, either scale.

Speaking of things I haven't seen... the Jabba.  I haven't been looking for one thanks to the SDCC version, but I haven't seen one in the wild.

My Targets, 3 of them, have had at least one for a while, and Jabba forever.  Every K-Mart has the initial two they put out I believe, and TRU has some as well. 

You know you flew there just to shop.  You know it.

Wow that's one hell of a toy run!

Indeed.  I flew all the way out there to hit up about four Targets, and to see my wife and hike up Mount Monodnack.

Every Target has shelf tags for the thing, but none of them have it in the backroom.
