Hey guys, I made the main page! I feel famous  ;D ;). I called up Target and asked them if they had it in stock. They guy said they had them bu they were in the back but was confused by their location. He said they were keeping them in 2 places. Anyway, they only brought out one case. No KOTCS figures in that case. No need to tip the guy he was more than happy to do it. I am in Brooklyn tonight so when i get home tomorrow i can take closer pictures for you. Which would you like?

Brooklyn?  Where do you live?  I live in the Bronx now, but was in Williamsburg/Greenpoint from 1988 to 2003!  What Target did you go to?---Mike

I'd dig any up close pics youc an take if you're opening them.  Indy(s) especially though since the eyes on them were wonky in most pictures we've seen.  Hoping that's not the case with production figures and I think that's the figure(s) people are most concerned will look good.

I tried taking some close up pics but my camera sucks. Indy's eyes still suck if that helps at all. This is the best i can get. I dont plan on opening them all but will open a few for the mailaway but will probably wait a bit.

What was the price on them?  Were they $6.99?  If so, maybe that means that the new Star Wars stuff isn't going to hit $8 a pop... I believe the Indy figures are $6.99 at HTS...

Indy figures are $6.99 in Target's computer system according to DPCI's I believe.

Bummer on that...  Though, was it a "new" Target store?  Some SW figures are $7.50-ish at some Targets as well right now.  I think one near me has that price set, but fortunately my new one's been $6.99 still...  That could negate the fun of the coupon though, if they're $6.99 at TRU and WM.   :-\

I dunno, I think the coupon's still a good deal if you maximize it by making sure you hit just above the minimum amount of $25 during each transaction.

Four figs @ $7.49 each = $29.96
After coupon = $24.96
$24.96/4 = $6.24 a figure

Whereas if you bought, say, ten figures, all at once:
10 x $7.49 = $74.90
After coupon = $69.90
$69.90/10 = $6.99 each

Sure, you'd have to make a few more trips, which is kind of a pain in the ass, but if you're a cheapskate like I am, it's worth it.

But it seems that all new assortmenst start out about a dollar higher.  I just found a Galactic Marine in my basement from the 30AC collection.  It was one of the first ones I found, and bought one for someone else.  The thing is, it's priced at 8.99 from KB Toys.  Eventually, they went back to 7.99.  Same for ROTS, they were more expensive that first few weeks.   In fact, I remember a few people brought their Midnight Madness reciepts back and complained...

That helps immensely Dan, thanks.  Me no buy Indy sight unseen because of eye suckage.  If they're all like that, I might only own an Indy or two that's not horrible.

Target was $6.99 I believe the first week that ROTS figures were out... while at Walmart they were $4.96 and $4.99 at TRU... then Target dropped to $4.99.

How I miss the days of $5 figures!!!!

I saw these figures & I agree on the eyes ala Marty Feldman. Very bad, IMHO. I'm passing on the fig's.

Give me vintage or give me death!  :P
