Can't believe people are finding this for $12.  Amazing.   :o

Amazingly in my heavy traffic/heavily picked over Target I found a Hoth and Endor set yesterday.  They were tagged $35, so I was not sure about getting it, but hung on to the Hoth set to decide.  Ended up scanning the set on one of the scanners and it came up $12.  To say the least I just about ran back to grab the Endor set, but it was gone by the time I got there.  Around the corner I found the family that got it and they had 3 UBP's in their cart (2 endor, 1 hoth).

I had always liked the Hoth set but it just did not have enough that I wanted to justify $50 (or even $35).  But drop that price to $12 and that is $6 for the VTAC Snowtrooper's alone!

I saw one for $35 the other day.  Almost grabbed it, it was gone today.

I have yet to see one below $49. I have searched high & low and no signs of captain solo..I mean UBPs. Consider yourself lucky if you see one and buy it on the spot!

I picked up a few extra at $35, which feels like a pretty good bargain.  $12 is ridiculous!

Maybe you can give Target the difference as a donation for their school charity thing?

Um....the difference between what?  Looks to me like I already overpaid.   ???

These have been gone since X-Mas in my Target, but I may have to check to see if they put a few out that they forgot about...

Couldn't hurt, all of mine stores had been sold out for weeks, but I've seen a few stragglers in the clearance section over the past week. Could have been returns or stashes.

Luke needs his shinguards on his boots.

Probably a legacy Luke hoth pilot will be such updated

Or, one can swap heads and make one with a Legacy Evo pack pilot.

So Adam May won the Target WOW contest to be made into plastic, congrats to him.

Is it me or does it seem a little fishy that a semi-web famous SW guru won the contest?

I think it's even weirder that he's the guy whose site 'ruined the surprise' by revealing the BMF. ;D
