Yeah the INC is the one figure I need to be done with the Vintage Collection (other than Dack and the AT-AT Commander, which I somehow missed out on). But I'm not about to pay $25 plus for one.

I just scored my sixth INC opener this morning at my local Target - looks like they got in another case of this wave today. The Malgus was already gone, but I didn't need him.

So this figure IS technically still shipping - and as an added bonus I was able to get him for $7.99 since Target is still running their sale.

Found this wave in Pitt today.  Malgus was gone but not my main want anyway.

A new Target opened downtown in my city...

The picked-over leftovers from this wave were sitting on the pegs when I stopped by. But holy hot damn, I never, ever, ever, ever thought I would see any figures past the Ep.I Wave at retail. :o

That is, until this Target decided to replenish the pegs with Ep.I figures. Joy.

Man, that royally sucks.

Is it one of those cool double-decker Targets?  One opened here.  I don't know why, but I dig it.

The only double decker Target I've been to is the one in San Diego.  They are cool.

The only one I've been to is in Minneapolis and it's kind of ehh.  I'm probably biased since they are only open limited hours (unlike the suburban ones) and they never have any goodies when I've been there.

The one near me opened in the city's east-end which is trying a revitalization thing...  it's an old area, and it's starting to grow (Google Pittsburgh's there, and some other new companies and things).

I don't know that store's hours as I don't get to it often but it's cool how you park under it...  I thought that was a good, and I hate to use the term innovative but it actually sort of is, solution to space issues in a city.  I found some stuff at that store but I don't go to it often despite it being on "my side" of the city.  It's a cool idea...  It'd be neat to see more often I think, but if its hours are limited that sorta blows.  I like that Target's open till 10 or whatever, like most stores.

Well, I think downtown Minneapolis becomes kind of a ghost town once the office workers are out of there.  Or maybe it only caters to the hours of the Target HQ workers?  Should ask some of the locals that worked there that might know.

But yeah, that parking under the store is nice.  We (I guess I mean my experience in Mn, since I have no experience with the store here in NY) have that with the Ikea as well.  Really efficient.

Our Ikea's all outdoor parking I think, but it's way out near the airport...  I've been in it once.

Our downtown's like that too, sort of, but changing some.  They've gotten to where it's more fun to go there.  We just need the transit to make it easier to get in/out.  Commuter trains here would be a huge boom to the downtown area, not to mention the Convention Center.  Been thinking about that more and more lately since I've had to be in the city a bit more than usual of late.

Found a case of this wave at my local Target. Figures I'd find this wave after I bought a INC for $20 shipped on ebay, but at least I have that dude carded and loose now.
