Dumb, dumb, dumb...sigh
« on: May 22, 2004, 11:58 AM »
It's true.  I am dumb.  I had not seen a new wave a SW figures for months in my area.  The last wave I saw was R1-G4.  Of that wave I was only able to find R2-D2(Bartender) and something else.  So, for months I've been checking the aisles of Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, K's, even the grocery stores for SOMETHING.  Any signs of life.  

My only real hope has been Target.  Their pegs are constantly empty or just pegwarmer like the Dignitary, but never full of anything except the CW cartoon figs.  Well lo and behold this A.M. figures were on the Target pegs I had not seen in person.  Dutch, TIE Pilot, Dodonna, Raperrtunie, and Antilles!!!  All figures I've wanted especially DUTCH!  

I went and got a small carton to put them in.  I head to the cashier.  I even made friendly small talk to the cashier because I'm happy to finally get some (SW figures that is).  I go to a few other places and get stuff secure in the knowledge I'm bringing home some SW bacon baby!  Yeah!!!

I take out all my figures.  I gasp in horror.  I forgot to stick Dutch in my carton.  Un-$%^&-ing believable!!!!  I am so dumb.  The main figure I wanted out of that bunch and I left Gold Leader hang'in on the peg.  I went back of course.  Guess what?  Yep.  He was gone.  I have never done that before.  AAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I believe I have an extra Dutch.  He's all yours if you want him Broem, just send a PM.

Yeah if anyone needs a Yavin figure tell me, they're actually warming pegs in some spots here. Go figure.

Dutch is pretty hot, and Skiff Lando is the coolest redo ever, but be careful, both of these are prone to get their heads pulled off once you try to take their helmets off. Just a warning. Wait, Skiff Lando isn't in this wave, is he? Nevermind. He's still sweet.  *runs away*

Skiff Lando is indeed very cool.  8)

Putting him in my Jabbas Palace setup kind of makes me want an updated Weequay... among many others *cough* Bib Fortuna *cough*

DUMB..DUMB..DUMB..  :)  

YEP...YEP...YEP...   ;)

Sorry to hear that Bri.  I've got an extra Dutch or two as well (as Jess), along with a few other "newer" figures if you want 'em.

If not, don't despair.  The Jabba's Palace and Yavin waves seem to finally be hitting (and staying) quite a bit more often in recent weeks, so I'm sure you'll see him/them again soon.  Good luck, and you know where to find me if you want some help...

Skiff Lando rocks, but could the weapon be any more in need of a little viagra?  Sheesh.

Bittersweet news for me.  Went to Target today and found Dutch, R1-G4, and Lando Skiff.  Unfortunately the SAGA Hall of Fame series also arrived.  Which guarantees at least 3 pegs full of warmers until whenever they decide to switch to their OTC line.  I was hoping Target would somehow skip that shipment.  Nope.  

Oh well.  It was good while it lasted.

SAGA toys were no longer in the database yesterday when I bought my J'Quille at target oddly enough, but those HOFs are showing up a lot.
