How fast did they bring it out? Worth it?
Pretty fast, the fastest I've ever seen actually.
For everyone else in the audience, Piet and I live pretty close to each other and frequently hit stores together and grab things for each other...
Anyway, there are some Targets in the area where the staff is always pretty helpful and then there are those where they treat you like you're trying to burn down the store if you're asking for more Star Wars to come out to the pegs.
There is one store where the manager is probably the worst, so much so that in the past, when he's seen me, he'll grab his walkie-talkie and communicate out to all employees "No Star Wars is to be brought out from the back room" - while I'm walking back to toys. I've affectionately nick-named him the "Helmet Hair Manager".
Well, recently, a new manager has popped up at the Target nearest to where I live and due to her attitude, I've nicked named her the "Helmet Hair Manager's Wife".
So Piet - believe it or not, it was the Helmet Hair Manager's Wife who helped me this morning - that's why I likened the Sunday circular to the Bible - 'cause once she saw the picture and the circular and that it was to start today, the fact that I was asking for something to be brought out suddenly became an absolutely reasonable request and she was all too happy to run into the stock room and bring me out a case of them.
She even joked with me about how big the box was.
So in response to your second question. Yes, it was worth it to ask Helmet Hair Manager's Wife for assistance just to see her act completely opposite to how she normally responds when I ask if a peg or shelf space can be re-filled.
As far as to whether or not the set it self is "worth it" - no, it absolutely is not. For me it's one of those purchases that I begrudgingly make simply to satisfy the completist in me. If I was an opener only, I would totally pass on this set - which is why I only snagged one of them, there's no point in getting one of these to open since I already have all of these figures opened in duplicate already.
