I thought you bought that Indy with a whip figure that you liked so much?

Or do you mean you didn't buy KOTCS toys, but cherry-picked from the other collections?

I didn't care for Indy 4, my review (mostly spoiler-free) was entitled "Indiana Jones and the Letdown of the Year". I gave it a 5/10 and even that feels a little generous. I'm thrilled I didn't buy any of the toys (sorry Figgy, you had your chance ;)).

I did find 3 Indy with Horse sets at Fry's, and bought one, but at $13 a pop it's not surprising they were there - the basics are $10 each as well, no Marions though.

The Deluxes are on sale at Target this week for $8.99 and I've seen quite a few of the horses.

I don't regret every KOTCS toy that I've bought but the Jungle Cutter and Cemetary Warrior sure up that regret percentage.

Okay, I get the regret over the Jungle Cutter, but why do you regret the Cemetery Warrior? Not only were they cool in the flick, but their figure is truly awesome... The sculpt is just excellent all the way around... Plus their artifact is amazing and almost in scale with the figs, too.

The Deluxes are on sale at Target this week for $8.99 and I've seen quite a few of the horses. Naturally. If I hadn't bought this one, Hasbro would have eaten them all up instead. :D


I don't regret every KOTCS toy that I've bought but the Jungle Cutter and Cemetary Warrior sure up that regret percentage.You mean just because it took you longer to open the packages than they appeared in the movie, and the action involved was far more interesting? ;)

Exactly! I break out my multi purpose knife, slash the plastic tabs on the back, rip the bubble from the card and pull the figure out. Since I've had disastrous results with freeing SW figures from the bubble (wrists breaking off and such), I've learned to take my time when going through that process.

Mark, while I don't disagree that the Cemetary Soldier is a great sculpt, I was expecting more out of them in the movie. To me, they were just your garden variety B-movie monsters. I'd much rather have the Crystal Skeleton figures and I'm indeed sending away for at least 2. Basically, owning this figure is like owning the ROTS Utapau Warrior :p

The Lego Jungle Chase set was also disappointing in that only 1 of the 3 things you build are actually in the movie. Amphibious jeep - check. Raft - not in movie. Jungle outpost - not in the movie. It's still a great set but it leaves you wondering if that jungle chase scene was everything that it could've been.

I didn't hate INDY, but I didn't love it. I DID think it was better than Temple of Doom, though, which was all I was hoping for, so ultimately, I enjoyed the movie. In fact, I'd be more inclined to pull Temple out of the set than KOTCS.

Even for 10 bucks, I can't bring myself to get it. Too cartoony, with cartoon Aayla to go with it. Did pick up a lone Emperor Mighty Mugg at NOHO Target today though. Not a lot in Star Wars right now. Saw the huge Rancor set there though. Looks impressive, but I don't have space to show him off, need room for the Falcon and AT-TE.

I'm trying to buy a house right now, and the market just hasn't dropped enough for me to avoid spending more than I had hoped to. To gather up cash for closing costs and repairs, and free up space in the old storage unit, I want to sell off a lot of Hasbro stuff.

Everything is MOMC, from smoke free air conditioned storage. I'll try to ask for retail or less on these, even if I may have spent more than that on evil-bay (back when I didn't have all of you to help me find stuff locally). There's too much to list, but it's primarily figures and some vehicles/creatures.

PM me with your wish lists and I'll try to pull what you want. I can't spend the time meeting up for a lot of single item requests, so if anyone is looking for a bunch of items at once, I want to talk to you. My collection isn't 100% complete, but it's pretty close. I know it's a longshot because most of you are completists like I was- but I don't want to deal with shipping and non-local transactions (ie. ebay or RS).

So here's what I'm purging:

POTF2 (green cards)
TPM
POTJ
AOTC/Saga (blue cards)
Some ROTS
Some Saga Collection
Some OTC

I'm trying to buy a house right now

Why do you want to buy a house?

I want to buy a house, too.

I want to buy a house to have room to build all my dioramas that will display my


POTF2 (green cards)
TPM
POTJ
AOTC/Saga (blue cards)
Some ROTS
Some Saga Collection
Some OTC

- loose and posed of course.

That's almost my only reason for wanting to buy a house.

A couple other things came to mind:

-having a yard for 2 big dogs, possibly (Husky and Labrador Retriever probably)

-losing my upstairs neighbors who pounded around today, deciding to vacuum their entire apartment at 7:30am on a Saturday morning.

But I like how apartments have on-site / on-demand handymen to immediately fix air conditioning, plumbing, lighting, the sink disposal, any ailments of the washer and dryer. But if I had a house, I'd sequester $200 or so in emergency funds and then find a private-sector guy to come and do it.

I hire housekeepers as it is, right now. That will continue. I might need to employ a yard and pool guy. My health (and my patience) is not where I'd be great at handling all that sort of stuff myself. Except maybe yardwork. I kind of like that sort of thing.

I picked up Neyo for myself yesterday, left a 2nd Stormie on the pegs. No sign of the other 2 Fan's Choice in that batch.

I opened my Indiana Jones Snake Pit Deluxe set yesterday and found a surprise: a big dead moth in the packaging. Probably about as long as my thumbnail. Weird. The set's kinda neat, but I think I'd enjoy the idol trap more... they didn't have any with good paint on Indy when I looked last week. Silly, since I don't even care about the cheap pack-in figures on those sets.

Picked up a Mygeeto set, and the Endor GH Cinema Scenes for 50% off. Probably only the 2nd time I ever saw that set. Box was kinda thrashed, but I'm gonna swap out the Luke for mine (mine has better paint) and just open it all up to give to my nephew.

Rushboy, thanks for the Mygeeto stash at Rosemead! :thumbsup: I also saw a Hulk Mighty Muggs and JLU Hawkman pack stashed there but left those.

I stopped by Rosemead WM just to see if they had any Transformers Animated - plenty of the Optimus/Megatron 2 packs but no deluxes or voyagers.
Did you get one of those optimus/megatron 2 packs ?

Today was the day of the Viper! I found 7 at Azusa TRU and 1 next door at Azusa WM. Then there were 8 at Baldwin Park Target, so I picked up 2 to make an even 10. Azusa WM had almost a dozen Indy Troop Cars, so I finally picked one up.

Now a story about Burbank TRU...

On Saturday night, I was nearby and decided to drop in. It was 8:52 when I rolled up and the inside gate in the entrance was already pulled shut. The large blonde woman who I assume was the manager on duty was stationed at the exit letting people out. There were still people checking out. I went up to her to let me in and she said they were closed. I pointed out that closing time was 9 and it was not 9. She reiterated that SHE was closed, to which I replied that it was not closing time according to the posted hours. Now I knew that there was likely nothing inside that I would buy, but on principle I wanted entry. So I told her that I knew what I wanted. She grilled me as to what it was and finally called over an employee to walk me to what I asked for (I said a basketball). He walked me over and told me how she NEVER lets people in after she decides to close. He went on to say that they had opened 10 minutes early that morning, which made it "legal" for them to close 10 minutes early. I searched through the basketballs until the clock passed 9:05 and, shockingly, didn't find what I told the lady I wanted, yet I still walked out smiling.

That is complete Bull$heet!! I was there at opening that same day and they didn't open 10 mins. early. I know who that (extra) large blonde woman was. Her name is Susan and she is the one who told me that it was a perk of the TRU employees to grab the hard to find stuff before the store is open. This was when I put a complaint with her about an employee walking out of the stock room with some variants right in front of us collectors/customers, showing off his score and then proceeding to pay for them at customer service (Dazed & Confused's post) with an employee discount to top it off!:mad:

It's easy how it works at Burbank TRU: You just gotta call and see what day they get a truck. Just show up that day AT OPENING and the stuff will be there. You don't have to go every day of the week looking and wasting your time and gas. Yes, you still have to put up with the employees, but that's the same situation at every TRU.

Hey guys... just wanted to let you know that's I've added an important new page at GalacticBinder this evening. It's a page for Star Wars coupons and discounts from across the web. (We figured... why not bind those together too?) This is something EVERYONE will want to use. We're going to be ruthless in keeping it up to date and as complete as possible. We'll be adding in plenty of stores and coupons as we find them or people send them in to us. And with gas being about a zillion bucks a gallon... ordering online gets more appealing every day instead of going out in the car.

I think the professional registration is a bunch of FN BS! Now I can understand if you have something to do with the show, but all the guys that use the professional registration to only save money while we all know you can afford it and use it just to snake your way in early is wrong and the Scum bags that do this know who they are. I love how when the doors open at the Con that it looks like it has been open for half a day. Think I like paying $75 for the pass? Not really, but I have a blast so it's not that big of a deal.

I've used the professional registration. What's wrong with taking advantage of the opportunity? It's so damn expensive and time consuming to go to San Diego, I'll take any freebies I can. I didn't know they'd let us in early, since I only go for one day on the weekend, so that probably does kind of suck. In any case, I'm not going this year.

I had hoped that Indy 4 would be good and I'd find some good stuff at the Con, but I was so depressed after the movie, that I just don't care. Incidentally, the Frank Darabont Indy 4 script was leaked online today- I can't wait to read it this weekend, if only to find out what George Lucas didn't like about it.

Last I checked, Professionals are not admitted to the show early. Exhibitors, on the other hand, get in something like 2 hours early on the first day and up to an hour early on the rest of the days. I'm an exhibitor (I'm not a scalper dealer - I publish a webcomic. Read it.

So Comic-Con is a MEDIA show! You live in LA and a lot of us work with in the MEDIA somehow here in LA... Movies, TV, Animation, Comics what ever... We have a right to a free pass like a restaurant manger can get into a food service show for free.

Don't know if I should get it.:cross-eyeThat's an insane amount of accessories, almost too much really, but it doesn't surprise me that it tacks a ton onto the final price. Still, this is NOT a difficult character to do, there's no facial likeness to get right, costume is dead-simple, no paint to worry about on the figure, so it does seem about $30-$40 overpriced.

From what I've heard and from the information I was requested to verify if I'm eligible for the pass or not, it's not that easy to get it. They are kind of tough in selecting if you qualify or not. I guess if you are, for example, an accountant from a production company or someone who's not directly involved with the creative process and you try to get one, then it's wrong. But then again, that application would be rejected since you don't meet the requirements.

Way overpriced...I have a 21st Century figure that I chose to gear to the hilt, and actually their gear at that time (from '99 to about 2003) largely stayed put, did what it was told (the notable exception was the nightvision headset, that piece is not designed very well because it's dependent on high elastic straps). However, once he took a fall it was a disaster, parts went everywhere, kneepads and web gear all out of whack, it was a mess. And the more I tried to fix the situation, the worse it got. Now all the weapon straps slide down and nothing stays on his shoulders for long, it's pathetic, he looks like a tired, lost tourist rather than the one-man-army I intended.

Speck, which version of the Indy 4 poster? I might take it off your hands.

Not to poke at the downed bee hive but I signed up for CCI as a professional... but I'm working on four of the properties being displayed by the studios, we're showing off a reel of features on an upcoming Blu-ray release on one of them, and I'll be "working" through 90% of the four days, so I think the free ticket is justified. I think if I was just going to pimp out my publishing company, I still wouldn't sign up as a professional. Just my two cents... sorry.

As far as scouting for stuff, nothing to report at NoHo Target. Fry's has a whole bin of Indy figures at their staggering mind-blowing $9.99/figure if anyone out there is still collecting them.

Those were probably left over from what I saw there last Sat. (bought Screamer, Ratchet, Blackarachnia, deluxe Optimus. The $10 off a $50 dollar purchase knocked down one of the deluxes to just around a dollar).

Following the HTS server "upgrade", have any of you experienced strange things with your preorders? i.e. cancellations. I did email them to cancel some of the animated TF's I bought but not all of them. However, they cancelled everything but Grimlock. My Last Crusade Indy figures don't appear in my order status either. Furthermore, everything that I have on preorder (that didn't get cancelled) is due to ship 6/17 which I find hard to believe.

Found the Voyager Optimus Prime today at Burbank target. There were also a starscream, grimlock and megatron, but I just needed Prime. I was able to use the coupon when I combined Prime with the Transformers Animated DVD which was released yesterday. The cashier didn't mind that it wasn't a $25 minimum toy combination for the discount.:thumbsup:

06-18-2008, 12:15 PM
There was also a Lugnut there. I picked up Starscream, looks cool so far! Passed on Grimlock for now, waitin for a different Megatron and have no interest in Lug.

So is the HTS 'upgrade' the reason the subcategories don't appear on the left anymore? It's a pain lookin for the animated TFs through 9 pages of ALL Transformers.

Still nothing fun or new in the SW section... big surprise! I think they had the last Comic Pack wave (Luke/Deena, etc... which was MONTHS ago...) on one day only, maybe a couple more if i wasn't there and they sold out. If that.

The LEGO aisle has the Target-exclusive TIE Crawler... and since it's so 'old' now it's outta the system. If only it was the Dwarves & Orcs set from the same time, I'd have gone for that to feed my Warcraft addiction. :)

I haven't been hitting the stores, but I did get the RAH Shocktrooper I ordered from Starwarsshop.com yesterday. It's a freaking great looking figure, even better than the RAH 501st clone, but it's so expensive: $177 after taxes.

I did buy only one of the Animated TF figures, the Voyager Starscream. I was slightly tempted to get the Megatron, but I passed. Montebello KayBees had a couple of Starscreams and Megatrons.

Glad you scored on the DF sets. When I was there last night, the guy that stocks toys was putting out fresh cases of Hot Wheels and there was a guy talking with the stocker and letting him search through the case and I'm sure he did the same thing with the Cars vehicles as well. One time when I was going through the cases on the pallet, he scolded me and told me to stay away from his pallets. He's a real jerk.

I got my SSC exclusive Smuggler Han yesterday... and broke his main blaster already. I think it's the way they packed it. When I went to put it back in the tray, the scope--already pointing down towards the barrel rather than parallel--broke off. The holster is pretty snug. Had to squeeze it and listen to tearing sounds of glue separating to get either gun in even partway; only got the main blaster in fully, didn't wanna risk the Cantina's skinny barrel snapping off like Bespin Luke's.

Burbank Target was pretty good today! They've still got one Rancor left, $27.98. If not for space issues... hopefully we'll get an ROTJ Rancor just as good in the next couple years, after I've reorganized a bit. Picked up Blue Iron Monger and Titanium Man (bout time they put an Iron Man peg back out!), Mighty Muggs Hulk, and TFA Prowl (Lockdown was also sitting on a shelf, but Prowl was on the Fast Action Battler pegs). Can't wait to open him tonight & start fixing his flaws :rolleyes:

Yeah, the Indy Titaniums are nifty enough, I didn't wanna buy 'em either but they're hard to resist, especially when Hasbro won't make the Last Crusade Tank in any other scale, and Indy & Henry are removable from the bike - I posted mini-reviews in the 2 appropriate sections. The price was $6.49, I dunno how much TRU charges for SW Titaniums anymore so I can't judge, but that's roughly the same as what Target charges now.

Picked up the LEGO Indy Peril in Peru set tonight at TRU. Set was $40.99 (originally $50.99 but I had a $10 coupon).

Well, it was good while it lasted. Looks like Target has finally caught on. I went to Traget this morning and tried to use the $5 off coupon. It rang up as expired. The cashier didn't understand why, since the expiration date on the coupon was 10/1/08, so she went to ask the manager. I looked over and the manager had a sheet in her folder with pictures of the coupon and told the cashier that they would no longer honor the coupon due to fraudulent use.

That sucks. Was hoping to use that coupon through October.

I wonder how much business these coupons drummed up for them, vs. their $5 losses.

They had the disclaimer posted at all of the Sepulveda Target registers this morning. What a load of crap. I don't want to sound all conspiracy theorist, but why didn't they just say that ALTERED versions of the coupon were not being accepted and continue to take the coupon for $25 or more in TOYS? I'm thinking Target Corpoprate decided they'd given away enough money with the coupon so they decided to find a way out.

I was hoping to use the coupon this summer for clone wars too. I have certainly spent more money than I've planned trying to add up to 25 bucks. If anything, the coupon has cost me more money and profitted Target!:D

Oh well. At least there has been some new stuff since that coupon surfaced. Plenty of order 66 for 7 bucks in NOHO. Star Wars figure pegs have maybe 3 figures.

Hmmm I know you are joking, but I'm keeping them for now. EP1 and Blue Saga has to go in a very bad way, plus all 12" and all that other junk like Cinema 3 pack and ships

I had given up on Cars but then I randomly found "Van" at Burbank TRU today. No sign of the pit crew guys, except Guido. I still have never found the Flik and Flea 2-pack- anybody got an extra?

Picked up the Leader class TFA Bulkhead at Los Feliz TRU today. I now regret getting and opening the Voyager class version. The Leader class is smaller than I thought it would be, and scale wise, fits perfectly with the Voyager class figures. The only drawback is the $39.99 price tag.

They also had a full case of ML Hulk. $14.99 per figure (ouch!). Was going to pick up the She-Hulk, but her face looks nothing like the pictures Hasbro provided. I really hate how Hasbro figures never live up to the hype that the early promo pictures provided. :(

In some cases, that's a blessing. Have you looked at the backs of the Spectacular Spider-Man cards? Everyone had weird ugly heads that look nothing like the cartoon. Peter's head still doesn't, really, in the one with swappable heads.

Darkagent, those Bulkheads must've gone quickly as there was no sign of them by around 9:30 this morning. I picked up the Indy Titanium cargo truck and stashed the Flying Wing for JT.

Speck, the only reason I have a Flik and Flea from Cars is b/c one of my siblings got it for me. I still have yet to see even one out in the wild.

I just don't get it- even Yeti's eventually were easy to find, and the Mia/Tia twins (blue, red and gold). WTF is up with Flik and Flea? Most stores that carry Cars don't seem to be restocking the 2-packs very often. It's hard to believe there are so many new cars coming, yet most stores treat them as 2-year old leftovers.

Also, I found that TRU does still carry Iron Man- shocking! They had the new IronMonger with the guy inside, and some weird green Iron Man variant. For a movie that was so good, the toy line sure died fast. Hulk is even worse- I didn't even realize that movie had come and gone.

OK I saw the signs at Target today that say the $5 coupon has been cancelled. If you look at them, they show a real coupon and next to it is the Photoshop fake. It's so obvious, I can't believe they don't know how to train employees to spot the real one. Really sad...

Really sad...Uh... they're ALL fakes, they were only meant to go to certain customers, and they got out from there. The real people who were supposed to receive them will be getting $5 Target gift cards now, the rest of us who didn't receive the original coupons will of course not.

They can keep their $5 gift card. I already saved over $50 in toys in the past 6 months!


Oh! by the way...5,000 post!!
