I almost pulled the trigger and ordered some stuff on the 4th but I just couldn't do it...  Even stuff I'd buy more of if I saw it in stores.  I just didn't bite the bullet.

What sucks for me is those great TRU sales, I found nada...  They sucked around here during those.  I think that further killed my interest in the line during this lull with nothing new.

I didn't order anything, either. Hasbrotoyshop had a few decent figures, but even with the code, after shipping I was better off ordering from Amazon....which I did not.

In another entry of the "stores you didn't know existed, much less carried toys" department, JediTempleArchives reports finding 2012 items such as vintage boxed starfighter class vehicles ($15), Movie Heroes figures  ($5) and the 2013 12" figures ($5) at Gabriel Brothers discount clothing stores, a regional chain not within 100 miles of me.

In case anyone is wondering, Gabriel Brothers stores are located in Kentucky, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.  Minnesota fans lose out again.

It's a real sleezehole too...  Gabes is REALLY not a nice store, at all.  As discounters goes, it looks like an old Goodwill store inside.  It's been around a LONG time though and is kind of a gag here about "shopping at Gabe's". [/end Yinzer accent]

I found a single Imperial Navy Trooper 4 times in the last 2 weeks at TRU and Target. Along with the rest of that case.  My Walmarts have gotten zero for a year. Like since the Phantom Menace wave. Which is still on the pegs.

Oh **** sorry wrong thread.

Just a heads up that the Spring 20% off codes at Hasbro are gonna be kaput soon...  May 31st.  I used one tonight.  $8 figures aren't bad when you want another Han Bespin, some army builders and custom fodder type stuff.

I got only 3 Fleet Troopers because of Hasbro Toy Shop's completely dickheaded 3 figure limit...

Stuff's not really selling at all at $10 a pop, AND you'll impose figure limits?  At the very least, make them only last for a month and if figures are there over that month limit, lift it to maybe 10 figures?  I'd have only bought RFT's if I could've.  I barely saw that at retail ultimately.  One here, one there, but never an abundance or anything.

I've seen figure limits at Target where the only figures they have are Quigon and six naboo security figures. My figure limit is zero at that store.

Never ran into a figure limitation at Target, but the Hasbro Toy Shop one...  I mean, if stuff's there over a month, is a figure limit wise?  Blah.

AT-ST is now down to $9.99 at K-Mart...  Mine still has a stack, haha.  Extra 50% off and those are gone to me now I think.

Anyone finding any good Cyber Monday deals for toys, would love to hear about them here. I guess HTS has 25% off and free shipping today, their site is very slow though.
