TRU Crumb bomber
TRU Tie Interceptor x2
Gungan #8
Rum #2
Qui-Eopie Jinn x5

The Tie Interceptor is freaking awesome! While overpriced the new details are really cool and very well done!

I WISH I could have paid the TIE Interceptor price for my Crumb Bomber! $73 is almost as much as the old Walmart Exclusives are going for on eBay these days...yikes.

My Pleasure Ryan, I wish I could do that with the 2nd Gunship I had from you, but it seems impossible.

BTW: I have just completed the 3-o Knights fom Legacy Comics today.

Just by chance I happened to stop by Walmart at lunch and they actually had the Droid Factory Exclusive pack I wanted - Boba and BL-17, the only one on the shelf at all. I had seen these before but it didn't register about the Droids connection - once I realized that, the appeal was too strong to deny. Freakin' sweet.

Picked up two sets of the Geonosis Arena 2-packs last night.

I also picked up the Re-issue of the Han/Chewie Marvel Comic 2-pack to finish off my MOC set of sets #1 - #8.

Picked up a MIB Crumb Bomber this morning too.

It's turning into an expensive week...

Actually saw a case from the The Phantom Menace wave (or what was left of it)!!  :o Funny because I went to that Target store Sunday and there was nothing there ... then I went Thursday and all that was left from the wave were the Gungan Warrior, Jawa w/ WED droid, and the Endor Scout trooper. Already have the scout, so I picked up the Jawa and Gungan. Really like these figures. I hadn't picked up the Jawa the first time it hit the white/blue packaging.

Does anyone know when Target stores re-stock their figures on the shelves??  ???

They restock over night, every day if they are high volume and some stores skip a couple days if they are low volume, and then the system pulls backstocked stuff all day as it sells (if they have any in back, that is). So they had plenty of chances to get new stuff between Sunday and Thursday.

I'm pretty sure when the economy tanked there was a financial release re: Target stores that indicated that in most markets they stopped overnight stocking to cut down on salary costs. While I don't remember the specifics, I know that they definitely did that in my area.

Some stores stock "early morning" instead of "overnight". So 4am to 12am instead of 10pm to 6 am, but most of the time you'll see the stuff early in the morning AND certainly new stuff showing up between Sun. and Thurs. makes sense.

I came across a very random Star Wars find today, at a local Rite Aid drugstore of all places...  The store had in stock the "Crimson Empire" figure pack and the "Rand Ecliptic" TIE Fighter with Hobby and the Rebel insignia on the wings.  They did not have price tags on them and I did not check the prices, but I would guess they are probably cheaper than on line.  The TIE looked interesting, but not so much that I wanted to pick it up.  Still, these might be showing up at your own local Rite Aids, so keep a lookout!

They're $19.99 T-Man...  Or they should be.
