I was seriously considering picking up two more Ties as well, but I went the Bantha route instead.  One for me, the other for another local.  My order came to $56 - not a bad deal but now I'm thinking I should have gotten the Ties instead.  I had no idea their website still had them in stock, but I'm not going anywhere near that $45 price point anytime soon :-\

Keep me in mind for the next outting - maybe I'll trade/sell you one.  I already had one and probably don't need 3 of them - it was just too hard to pass up.  Wish I had seen that they had the bantha pack.   :P

If I'd have known that ordering online applied I'd have gotten 2 of the TIE's, maybe some smaller ships, and the Banthas...  Bummer about that.  I had no idea you could order BOGO too...  Saved me at rip out actually had I gone that route.

I didn't connect those dots either Jesse... despite going halves on Banthas with Paul, it didn't occur to me that this would be a perfect opportunity to try to get deals on the repainted vehicles that I've been passing on - Hailfire... Droid Tank... Vader's Starfighter etc...

Okay, no offense, but what in the heck did you just say?  ???

Despite being informed to the contrary, my order was infact billed and sent!  :D

Seems as though I'll have 3 brand spanking new TIE Fighters waiting for me after school tomorrow.

Rob, I think you could have only gotten the BOGO deal on the repainted midsize vehicles at brick and mortar TRUs.  I checked online early Sunday morning and the only midsize vehicles they had online were the non-exclusive ROTS JSFs.  They also had the large wing TIE, Clone Wars gunship, and Dagobah X-Wing.  There were no Saesee Tiin's, Darth Vader Sith JSFs, or Hailfire and Droid Tank...  So you probably didn't miss out on those online unless they became available later.

But you could have definately gotten those last 2 TINs that you wanted.  They were all in stock when I ordered.

Ah, well nothing lost then.  Although I did pass on the Clone Wars Gunship and might have picked it up if there was something else that I could have found to make it worthwhile.

Argh!

I went to TRU yesterday over lunch and all I found were a TON of empty pegs and a store full of whiny kids (Thanks Presidents Day  ::)).

Whiny kids? In a toy store? Surely you jest sir! ;D

What I though was weird today was that the Target I bought my first TAC from had them for $6.99 while the Saga figures at the same place are $7.64.

Yeah, that's weird Darth_Anton...I just hope that they don't move the TAC pricing up to $7.64 later down the road.

My TAC I got this past evening were $7.39, but the one I got at the same store the other day was $6.99...  Guess they realized they could jack up the price.  That sucks...  But $6.99 sucks, honestly, so till I see $5.99 again I'm gonna bitch about the price regardless. :)  No figure this scale should cost more.

Yeah, but they're giving us these cool coins that must have cost nearly $.05 to make... :P
