Given WalMart's checkered past with exclusive figures, I felt like this Tunghori deal was a better option.

Oh, and I scored a clearance priced Search for Luke Skywalker BP for $7.48 today.  Good times!

We ventured to the Super Target across town and I found a lone vintage packaged Taun Taun for $7.48.  I didn't necessarily need another one, but I really like the Taun Tauns and thought that was a nice deal.

I was at Target on break and found a new case of TPM figures. Despite my brain repeatedly saying "PASS" I bought Q Vos, Anakin, Naboo Trooper and Dofine. Almost $44 for them. I hate myself.

There has to be a 12 step program out there for people like you.

The 1 step program works well for me.

Step 1:  Buy more.

Although it has become more a 2 step program in the past 2-3 years.

Step 2:  Find something to buy first.

The only stuff I scored so far has been from tru.com.

Both Walmarts and both Targets that I frequent several times a week have not let a figure from this wave leak out of the stockroom yet.

And it's always like that in my area.  You guys are always talking about cases of new stuff that got out early, and these fabulous clearances on things.  So I go out and look when I see thos posts.   I never see any of that.  I am a victim.

About the same here Dressel...  I saw one figure out on pegs and I'm actually taking it back because it sucks so badly.

Otherwise I havne't seen anything good that I'd have kept, like Maul, Sidious or whatnot.

FWIW, all of my stores are empty too, and the two I've found items at are notorious for not restocking.
