Dorito!  Welcome to this place.  I think I've seen you at a different board before, correct? 

Please announce your arrival here in the Newbies section.  Tell more about yourself.  Are you a Cheesy Dorito, or a Ranch Dorito?   ;)

Nice to be here.

Yeah I am on a couple other boards with the same name.

If I had to choose, I would say I am a Cheesy Dorito.

Target has gotten the most business from me, with Wal-Mart coming in second for having a few HTF figures.

I'd say right now, and the past few weeks/months, it has been Target.  Target has just been better at stocking newer stuff overall it seems.  I think anything from #45 and up has been at Target for me, as well as the 500th Vader.  Our closest Wal-Mart has just tons of the normal pegwarmers (Nemo Warrior, Clone Pilot, Palp w/Red Saber, Polis Massan, Mas Amedda, etc.), and a big ole pile of Darth Taters.  Target has been much better for me, and that's just fine...if I can avoid Wal-Mart, all the better ;).  Toys R Us has been fairly worthless since opening day, and aside from the AT-RT, I don't know if I've bought anything there really for ROTS.  They have some newer stuff now (MPire, Galactic Heroes transforming vehicle thingy), but nothing new as far as a basic figure line.  Ours does seem to have plenty of white clonetroopers though.

Most of my money has gone to Walmart. With Target coming in second. 
I remember my dream now.

I'd have to say Target, followed by (imagine this) Kmart.  TRU and Wal-mart have been pretty poor at keeping things on the shelves lately. 

Also, in my area I think Wal-Mart and TRU seem to have the scalpers working there more so than Target.

Lately, I must say nowhere is a good place for me. Every place I go to has  only Palpatines, Clone Pilots, and Neimoidian Gunners.

I felt that way until the Antilles wave hit and I realized that no figures is better than crappy figures (U warrior aside).
You are never alone when there's a clone.

I have actually found Wal-mart to have the biggest stock of stuff but I haven't been to Target or TRU in awhile so I could be wrong.  We have 2 Wally Worlds to choose from here.  KB Toys didn't have much of anything when I went in there today so I was a little bummed out.  I went to K-Mart today and saw Gen Grievious's cool ride and I saw the Unleashed figure of him which I wouldn't mind having.  I also saw the M&M figures which I hadn't seen except on here.

Target for me. Which is good for be because I enjoy shopping there the most, except for their crappy policies when it comes to exclusives. I hate Wal-Mart and avoid it when possible but I have to stop in occasionally on toy runs, and that is the only time I will ever go in. I have found some stuff there, but the majority is from Target. TRU usually sucks around me, but I have found some decent stuff at mine, even though they still have 20 VOTC Landos, 5 OTC Lobots, and 5 SAGA Chancellor Palpy's. ::)
