Whew, this may be a lengthy post:
On a whirlwind lunch tour, I hit up a few Targets and the local TRU.
At the first Target I used the DPCI Mind Trick to get them to pull a case of the new Battlepacks, as well as a case of the Rapid Strike vehicles. They came back with two mint cases of Wave 1 for each. So I got the 4 new BP's plus a Republic Scout Speeder mini-rig for $4.84. I also got a $5 gift card for spending over $80 thanks to an insert deal with their latest catalog.
I then headed over to TRU which I knew had nothing new since I checked on their restock day Wednesaday, but I did return the Scout Speeder and got my $19 back that I dropped on the one they had a few weeks back.
So THEN I headed over to the Target that had started their reset yesterday, and saw different stuff. They had a Wave of Rapid Strike vehicles that were all repacks of old Deluxe sets (Jesse, AT-RT, etc) but no sign of the mini Y-wing. They also had new battlepacks out, only there was a Zillo Beast set there as well!
So I snagged the Zillo Beast set with the cash I got back from TRU plus my free gift card and bought myself lunch with the money left over. Holla!
My goal for tonight/the weekend is to track down that Capture the Droids BP as well as a super cheap mini Y-wing. And replace my dinged RC Republic Tank to boot.
Next Wednesday I would hope TRU has their 2 new TCW exclusives out and then my victory will be complete.
