I've seen remnants of the newest wave a couple of times, but not all of it.  All I need are those elusive Padawan kiddos and I'll be caught up ...for now.

Guess, what, went to two Targets today and picked up some Padawans and a couple of RBD's

I was looking for the newest MOTU

Guess what else they sell at Target every Halloween...



TARGET!
TARGET!
TARGET!
TARGET!

Give me a T!

Hey OCB my Walmart sells that all year round. You want some now I'll send it to ya!  ;D As for the Ashla Jempa wave I saw it today make that I saw all the new figures in my local scalpers hands as he was paying for them. It's people like that I wish they're atm or credit cards wouldn't go through and they didnt have cash <G>

Anyway enough of my rant, bring on Coleman Trebor!

Yep, I went to Target last night and they had 1 Ashla & Jempa, 1 Blonde Imp Officer, and 2 Red Battle Droids.  Then the usual glut of Destroyer Droids and Yoda Jedi Council Chair and unsold Accesory Sets.  Not many pegs for new figures but hey there is hope.  A new hope if you will :)

I checked Wal-Mart - nothing new there.  
K-Mart - nothing new.  
Kay-Bee - zilch.  
Wal-Mart #2 - zippo.

Went to Target this afternoon and found the Archive Droids. That's it. Obviously someone beat me to the rest of the case (whatever was in it), probably scalpers. It's ALWAYS the scalpers. They have such a foul odor they leave a vapor trail behind. I could almost make out the silhouette...

Anyway, it's here, just not in adequate quantities.  :P

You could move in with me Brent but my Wife would be even more ticked with the increase in packages :-*

Just came back from a Target that at first check, still had empty pegs. Then, I spot on the shelf hidden behind some old Action Fleet ships, one of the 2003 figs. I start getting excited as I see it's the Yoda and Chian figure that I still need. Then I held it up to inspect it. So much for getting excited over it. I'm guessing whoever went out of their way to hide the figure was also the one who took the tab that actually holds the fig on the peg and bent it all the backwards and making this a non-mint card which I have no interest in.  But in an effort to get even with this culprit, I hung the fig back on the pegs in hopes that someone else will buy it before the one who hid it returns.

Oh, and Brent, I'll have to check with the wife but I'm pretty sure that if you show up to move in and you don't have a Canada sweatshirt for her, you'll probably be sleeping on the patio.  ;)

Target is full of it!! At least this one Target in my area. Check out this e-mail I got from a good friend of mine.

David,

Have you heard any news about Target and SW basic figs? I stopped at the
Target in Plainfield last night and they told me they would not carry
the basic figs until the Christmas reset?
Have you heard anything about
this? I've not seen anything new since the Han & Chewie that you found
for me. Have you seen the Yoda/Padawan packs?

LMK!
Steve


I have to say this guy at this Target is FULL OF IT!!!!

Went to a Target today, and finally got Yoda & Chian, along with Ashla & Jenpa.  NICE!

I'll have to check the Targets soon. Other than that, I have seen NOTHING NEW!!! :( >:( The newest figs I've seen are at GROCERY STORES, and that was just the High Council Yoda/DD wave. That's why I entered the Kebco $50 credit contest. I hope I win so I can buy something new for a change.

How funny is this.  I go to Target before work and pick up

Yoda & Chian
Lama Su
Aayla Secura
Barriss Offee
Ashla & Jempa
Research Droids

Then I get to work, fire up JD and see the main story telling me to go to Target.  So far this year Target has been the only place I've found any new figures, all the other stores in my area suck

Let's not leave WalMart out of the mix.  Because I found the Throne Room Duel Luke & Vader, Snowtrooper, Mynock Hunt Chewy & pals tonight.
