If I find one of every figure I want then I should come out under $100, but if they have the duplicates that I want, then who knows how much I'll spend. :-\

For my self I'm probally going to spend about $400 dollars that day with some stuff I going to buy for work another $300 or so but I will hopefully get that back once I sell off those estras products.

Im limiting myself to $300.  One of each fig with room for a few duplicates on Army Builders plus some Playskool for my son.  Ill wait on DLX and the Ships.  They always show up later in greater quantites. You can have the playset.  Its the worst to date IMO.

Has anyone found any TRU or WM that arent advertising a MM but are still having one?

That's fine with me - I didn't include the Mid-Size vehicles in my tally - I found all three of the new ones at Target awhile back. I grabbed the first wave of Deluxe Figures last night (Anakin, Obi-Wan & Grevious) so that's roughly $65 that will come off my estimate. I'm still coming in at over $1200..

I think Scott's comment was directed at this guy...  ::)

What about the early leaks a few of us were lucky enough to score?  Does that technically count, since they're supposed to be April 2nd releases?

As for my estimate, I can bring it down by about $25 since I was lucky enough to get the Target coupon in the mail today.   :)

I'll definitely be headed to Target to get the most out of my coupon...

I know - I just thought that I would chime in with a comment that this "rule" seemed fair to me. Sorry if I offended anyone.

Nah, Jeff was just using the rolleyes at me there, not you Pete!  You didn't offend anyone...   ;)

Hey you two Minnesota turds, watch it!

I think I'm gonna play by different rules then, and just tally up all the "4/2" merchandise, regardless of whether I nabbed some of it earlier.  So whaddaya think about that, eh?!   :-*

Yeah, that's what I thought!  Feel free to join me Pete.  Or maybe I'll play nice, and do two separate totals, and keep everyone happy.  I'll have to think about it.

BTW, what the hell are you dropping $1,200 on, Pete?!   :o  I can only assume that includes a ****load of army building stuff, right?  'Cause I'm doing the whole carded/loose, ships, deluxe, beasts, etc. thing like usual, but I was only figurin' that I'd have to be dropping about $750ish on it all...  Or are you including books, games, and other collectible kinda stuff as well...?

Wow , you guys are really dropping some change :o  No way I could ever justify that on one haul.  Makes me sometimes wonder what the hell are we really doing ???

Please don't bring that up Jim.  We don't want to know that answer to that question...  Thanks.   :-*

I can guarantee you I'm going to come in last.  $0.  I'm working all weekend, and my town has sweet **** all open past 6pm on Saturday or Sunday.

WTF am I doing in this ****hole town anyway?   Oi.   ::)  [/rant]

Yeah, maybe you guys do spend a LOT of $$$, but I'd like to thank you big-spenders...

If it weren't for my ability to show off that thread and say things like:

"Yeah honey, I know $1600 a year on SW toys sounds like a lot, but there's this guy Morgbug at JD who spent $7500 and another guy Dale who spent $9500!  Imagine if I'd spent that much on stuff..."

I'd spend a lot more time in the doghouse because of my love for little plastic figures...

So, thanks to you guys, I get out of the "hot water" I was previously in and everybody wins!   ;)
