So...pretty momentous night last night. Thanks to a tip from another local collector, I was able to snag the elusive Republic Dropship Class I set from a local Target last night. Even better, it was a cherry mint package too, so this one is a definite keeper. I still wouldn't mind having an extra for openers, but I'm not going to kill myself looking for it.
This is pretty noteworthy for me because this was literally the last toy I was looking for in a brick and mortar store this year. The only other thing coming out Clone Wars-wise is the Wolf Pack gift set, and since that is online only there is really no reason for me to set foot in another TRU, Walmart, Target, or Kmart for the remainder of 2012. Yay!
That said, it is a hard habit to break, so I am sure I will keep up the occasional runs - we do have a new TRU opening next week - but the sense of urgency is definitely gone now. Big sigh of relief.
