I got an extra Target coupon from my brother this morning so I went to Target today and picked up Anakin's and Subulba's podracers for $15 each.  I didn't have these yet so I was happy to get them at this price.  I am not sure if I have Podracer Anakin or Sebulba figures, but I am in no rush for sure.

Thus the goofiness of mass rerelease of Sebulba's pod racer while his action figure is currently only available in a store exclusive battle pack.

Picked up some of the Vehicles (AAT and ATAP). They should price them like this normally... but then I'd want them for $7.50.

Snagged Quadrinaros and Ratts at TRU thanks to the BOGO sale. Wouldn't have picked them up any other way. Also snagged two more Battle Droids for the hell of it.

Finally found the deleted scenes figures at TRU.  I purchased all 5 figures plus a Naboo Guard for the sale prices.

As far as action figures go, the local Babies R Us was a bust.

I went to Target 2 doors down found 2 clearanced vintage 3-packs* marked $9.88. They scanned as $26.99, but I said. "I got the Taret 50% coupons. They are marked 9.88....I'll try it."

Without much hassle, the cashier didn't call a manager or anything, I got both sets for $10.47. Ha!

And I got another 50% coupon from the return counter.

AT-AP ($15), Daulty Dofine ($4) and Clone trooper with BARC speeder bike ($8.50).

Glad the target sale is done...before I start "buying things because they are cheap"

My Target put out a fresh case of TPM figures, so I used the text/online version of the coupon on my phone to get a Naboo Guard for 50% off.  That was fun.  Phone coupons are a new addiction of mine.

One target said they were out of coupons but the cashiers had them, just to ask them what ones you needed to use. I got two items and the cashier rang up the coupon once. I said "You can't use it twice"? She said "they usually won't, let's see." Of course, it worked...I'd used two ad coupons early in the week.

Again, a simple 50% sale would've been better and cleared out gobs of merchandise, as I think most average shoppers were unaware of the whole deal.

Those rows of movie heroes and clone wars aren't moving, besides the crappy Maul and Oppress.

I've been out of it for a while...

but, again, I have found nothing new to buy since the TPM wave 6 weeks ago.  No cut-scenes figures, no Movie Heroes.  Nothing new at all.

I thought you were going to post that you found the jackpot of figures... and that would be the April Fool's Joke.

Nobody's seemingly seeing much of the DS figures, other than at TRU now.  I know WM here isn't restocking much at all, but there's space to do so.  We only got a very small ammount of DS figures in the first place, actually.  Not many here got the $4 deal on them either.

What's funny about breaks like this is that it reminds me how much I enjoy NOT looking for anything.
