Golden Compass figures are being dumped at Big Lots for you who have Big Lots to check... I dunno how far around the country those stores go, but they're kinda nice to have around here I've found, as far as customizing and cheap tools go anyway.
They didn't have a ton, but they did have a little of just about everything... I got two of the main hero guy with goggles, 1 Sam Elliot, and 1 of the really big dude who I hadn't found yet. They had the floating vehicle balloon thing for $15, figures were $4, and the big battling bears were $6... They didn't have ALL the figures though, like only one Tartar warrior, none of the weird elf-like chick, and none of the main hero chick (Tom Cruise's ex-wife?).
The figures are pretty useful if you have good parts to go with them, and the gear's not bad at all for various items.
Not much in line for other fodder there right now, but there were a TON of Hot Wheels Speed Racer items dumped at the store I was at too.
Didn't take long for those to get shoved out of some store, eh? Amazing what a movie flop can do.
