Whoa- didn't know about the K-Mart sale; how long is it supposed to last?  I wonder if I should have gone there instead of WM yesterday, but I do still need an Evolutions set and a BP...

Holy crap! I will but the BMF an AT-TE to get another AT-TE for free. I have to check K-Mart tonight....glad I did not open the big vehicles yet!

Yeah, the stock at my K-Mart, at least when I checked, wasn't enough to have made the sale worthwile to me (didn't buy the AT-TE).  They didn't have any Evolutions sets, BPs, or even many of the figures I wanted.  They may have already sold them, but I doubt it!

Today I found the Hoth BP; started opening it and will give my thoughts over in the other thread.

K-Mart adjusted my purchase from last week of three might muggs to the price of two, but didn't have anything else I was really interesterd in getting, mostly Clone wars and I'm just not into the animated figs.  I would have gone for the Evolution Fett set, but they didn't have the corrected version.

I picked up the Padme and Quarren Soldier at Target today, despite the higher prices.  Now I just need to find that SaeSee Tiin and I'll be all caught up with the basic Legacy figures until Wave 3.

picked up Rex (foil but no sticker..gotta love Canadian packaging) and another animated clone trooper. I really love the look of the troopers. The squad size I wanted changed a lot before july 26 but after owning 4 of them now I know for a fact that I need at least 4 more, the battle scene on yahoo and the look sold it to me. :-X

That may not be much of a bargain.  I heard rumor that the BMF Falcon is $200 at Kmart, so you're not saving as much as you might think.  No idea what they charge for an AT-TE or if they'll even honor the buy 2 get 1 free on large vehicles.  :P

I placed an order at TRU.com for a few things I haven't found around here yet, and got the exclusive Holo Grievous to boot.  I grabbed the V-19, TLC Wave 2 SaeSee Tiin, and a couple of Clone Wars figures (Yoda/Grievous).

Bought an older figure at Target yesterday, VTSC Leia. I mention it because it was fraudulently returned and apparently, Target has the ability and the will to track down certain fraudulent returns.

Basically, someone returned the VTSC Leia with a printed mighty mugs UPC stuck over the original UPC. Since Mighty Mugs have a low return rate, Target is checking the return log coupled with the surveillance video. They were making a big deal of it, so I would imagine they weren't feigning interest. They also said they were watching people who blatantly take advantage of clearance by returning large quantities of toys just before close and then show up to re-purchase them first thing in the morning.

I know people that have been abusing Target's clearance policy for years...

With the economy the way it is and the recent coupon scam/fraud/abuse fresh on their minds, I'm not surprised that Target is finally going to start policing things like fraudulent returns or return/clearance abuse.

I finally found my Quarren soldier today.  The only new fig I had not seen yet.  I think the feet may have been put on the wrong legs.  The longest toe of each foot is to the outside.  I can't tell for sure, but the picture on the back seems to have the long toes to the inside.  I'm not concerned that it might be some rare error or anything, but he does seem to have a little trouble standing.  Are others finding the same thing with their Quarrens?

Siths Herald--My Quarren Soldier's legs are the same way (longest toes are on the outside). He hasn't had any trouble standing though.


I bought the Homing Spider droid at Target today.
