Wal Mart on Lyons Ave in Valencia has a bunch of LC Prime. Let me know if you don't find one, and I'll grab one for you. It's an amazing figure!

JediTricks
07-03-2009, 02:22 AM
Hey JediTricks. All of the ones I've found are $34.99. I'll be more than happy to grab you one next time I see them (which will probably be today). I'll keep you posted!I appreciate the offer, but I'm going to try to hold out for $30.


That's just robbery. I picked up couple of the Deluxe last week at Frank & Sons for "only" $14 and I still felt violated afterwards.Wow, that's actually a good deal at F&S, crazy! The sets still suck though for the money.


Hey I gave you a few bucks extra, LOL:thumbsup:Oh, trying to buy me off with money now, eh? :p

All they have is LC Meg and he looks ridiculous. I wish they would had used a Car or some kind of real aircraft for him. I hate the way he looks in both mods. I think SS looks retarded in Robot mode too.

On a side note I picked up a sealed MP Skywarp from Commtech. Thanks bud, hope you feel better.

Picked up the HA Bumblebee at Los Feliz TRU this morning. $34.99 was a bit much, but then they were also giving away $10 gift cards with $30+ Transformer purchase. So the price "came down" to $24.99. Can't wait for the HA Sideswipe and HA Skids (with Arcee and Megan Fox). Anyone know when those will hit.

Has anyone picked up a Masterpiece Grimlock. Just wondering what's the best price for one of these. The lowest I've seen it for is $150.

In one way, I'm really cheesed at myself for not hitting TRU today, only Target (and finding ZIP), but in another I'm relieved because I don't have $35 to spend right now.

The best price is to wait until 2010 when Hasbro releases the US version.

I found my prize at a Target in the south bay. I hadn't been to that area in a while & got lucky. LC Prime is pretty awesome, the only semi-negative things are that he doesn't come with a blaster, the torso doesn't swivel (u could get some wicked poses goin if it did), and the armor sometimes gets in the way of the swords tucked in. What a b to transform -took me an hour. That's more time than MP Megs! The complexity/engineering is astounding though. Pick this guy up if you can find at a decent price.

darkagent -- the best time to buy MP Grimlock would've been when he first went on pre-order for TFsource and BBTS. He was $135 and $145ish at each store respectively. If u can get him for lower than $150 & u really want him, I'd go for it. I still don't recall H sayin anything about a US release -I was at the Botcon panel, but I do hope he's released next year.

this is really random -but Joe guys --does anyone have an extra Hall of Heroes Firefly they don't need or don't want?? I could go for one of those. :yes:

I just missed Jetfire (several I heard) at Wal-Mart. I went at 3am because I am having trouble sleeping and am still up this morning (not at 5am).

At 7:45 if I haven't crashed, I'll check Target.

Also I need to find a ton of those Anakin E2 Evolutions figures re-issued on the single card.

And I wouldn't mind Reverb, the Scout Class red motorcycle from Transformers.

Picked up a Padme Evolutions finally, for the clearance price (16). Also been getting a few Muggs for future customs at the 8 dollar clearance price. Since this might be the end for Star Wars Muggs, without exclusives, I thought I try my hand at customs.

I saw the AOTC wave at retail for the first time yesterday at Valencia Target. I still haven't even seen the ESB wave at any stores. Fortunately, I've been able to rely on HTS but I hope things turn around for Legacy Collection when we get the new cards.

Target seems to be clearancing items with little rhyme and reason - I saw the Bumblebee Mr. Potato Heads for $7 today, so I wish they'd clearance out all the Yarnas and Ak Revs.

The Star Trek and Terminator stuff needs to be clearanced out so that (I hope) the new product waves from each line can be brought in.

Playmates should change the skew numbers for the new assortments, but re-releases of the most popular sellers (Spock, Sulu, and Uhura in their SF uniforms) could be included.

With Terminator, there will be a new John Connor figure (that looks like Bale) but the T-700 might also make a comeback. They could change Marcus by putting him in the trench coat and carding the figure of Blair. Kyle Reese will be essential to see release. I also have the A-10 Warthog jet from this collection, but I've never ever seen it in stores again. They need to get that out more along with the helicopter and tow truck, plus the mototerminators.

Just got the Republic Fighter Tank at Target. I haven't opened it yet, but to me it doesn't look too exciting.

I'm going to use one for a gun emplacement for the Clones on for that opening battle scene from the cartoon movie. I'll get a 2nd one for the Chariot LAV used on Myrkr in "Heir to the Empire" by the stormtroopers (when Luke Skywalker met Mara Jade). In an Outer Rim world, even 27 years after the Clone Wars end, it's possible the Empire had to use Old Republic equipment on backwater worlds where smugglers like Talon Karrde set up.

I also got the extra Spock 3 3/4" figure I was looking for.

Sound off if you've found that darn AOTC Evolutions (Padawan) Anakin figure yet, please (and at what stores).

I think he's coming out on the old card with Beru and Owen.

I also got the Star Wars Jedi Training Academy Box Set from Walt Disney World from UPS today. It was $49 with s&h and I think it's well worth it. $8 a figure, thereabouts - that's what's in stores (though you have to get a ROTS Vader as one of the figures) and then $9 tax and shipping for the set. That's fair.

There's 3 Jedi Younglings - all human, a black boy, Asian girl, white boy, and a white male Jedi Knight teacher that's training them. Plus this guy in black that breathes like he has a problem with asthma. I think I've seen the last character in one or more of the Star Wars movies or something.

I ordered using (407) 363-6200 and be very specific on the phone concerning what you want. Definitely say "3.75" figure set!"

How can i get him? last search on HTS produced nothing. Some guy at Botcon had one & at Gregg Burger and Michael McConnoughy's (sp?) panel -he brought it to give to Mike. (The OG voice). Don't know how that guy got it though.

Tycho, you should have told us that you wanted that set as it's available at Disneyland as well and either myself or another person on the board could've bought it with an Annual Passholder's discount. I could've even delivered it in person to you at SDCC!

Thanks for the heads up. I went by this afternoon and picked up mace, the heavy super battle droid and the jawas in addition to an RC droid on clearance. Simingly random clearance items - SW titaniums are on clearance for instance. I visited half a dozen other targets and this is the first titanium clearance I've seen. Also the first new CW wave sighting which makes me wonder how much new inventory the other stores are sitting on. I assume distribution is uniform within the region.

Been combing the stores for some decent sales and have found a few things so far. My best score was a TRU B-Wing on sale for $29.98 marked down to $23.98.

Target has got lots of stuff on clearance too, but it's a bit spotty in places. Some are 30% some are 50% and one was 75% already. Some have JLU & DCU on clearance, some don't.

Haven't seen the new CW wave, but am anxiously awaiting it. I did score a new Republic Tank today!

I doubt they're sitting on inventory, here in LA I've found that Target's the fastest distribution generally. I don't know how they made room for it though, still tons of old CW figures.

Voyager Class Optimus Prime is made cheaply and has a handful of parts that fall off of him. His best redeeming value is that he is the same scale to The Fallen and the only Starscream released as of yet.

I'd avoid him unless you are a Transformers diorama builder.

It wasn't really their fault. It was "endoftheline-itis". He retailers just didn't order a lot of the wave, it never made it to Target, and that left a lot of people searching on line (so they went fast).

I got Leader Class Jetfire at Wal-Mart tonight! He's awesome!

I went downtown to the Padres game for dinner at the ballpark and then made some new friends and wound up in the Hard Rock Hotel's night club until waaaaay late. Then when I got my car back I thought "what the heck?" and I checked two Wal-Marts on my way home at like 4 o'clock in the morning. On my 2nd stop, I got very lucky! They probably had 3-4 of him and the rest Optimus or Megatron, so Jetfire is going to move into those stores rather slowly as the other Leaders have to sell through to move the inventory.

I guess his movie character and what the toy attempts to represent. Other than that, I couldn't tell you.

I bought him.
I immediately opened him up.
I posed him to join the Autobots in my pantry-cabinet, fighting the Decepticons.
Several times a day, I open my pantry cabinet and stare at him.

Ya know, he's sculpted in black, so instead of continuing to attempt to get Premium Ironhide from the last movie, also in black, I embraced the new dark brown / tan Ironhide. Now my Autobots are all different colors - so it's like playing with Light Brites. Remember those? That's awesome.

Found all 5 sets of the new WM exclusive BAD sets at the Valencia WM. At $17.00 a set I passed on them. The droid that is built with the sets is the Dark Trooper but in a black paint scheme. I don't think these are worth $17.00 because the comic packs are $12.89 and you get 2 figures plus a comic book, and these sets are all repackaged figures except Corran Horn and the droids and are $5.00 more. No thanks.

I also found the new LEGO sets and the SW science kits at the Valencia TRU.

Valencia Target has some of the LEGO's on clearance including the V-19 Torrent ($38.48) and the Magnaguard Fighter ($31.48).

Found the new Walmart BAD wave today. At $17 a pop, the only one I ended up getting was Coran/Whistler. I would like to build a Darktrooper, but it's not worth $100...sorry, Hasbro and Walmart.

Came across some of the new Clone Wars figures at the same Walmart and picked up the following: Cad Bane, Admiral Yularen, Commander Gree, Jawas 2-pack, Green Clone Trooper repack, Space Suit Anakin, Space Suit Ahsoka, Clone Trooper Denal, ARF Trooper

Also spotted the new Clone Pilot battle pack today at Target. For $24 + tax, had to pass. If I ever see one of these on clearance I'll pick it up. It's funny, with the way the figures/pod are positioned in the packaging you can tell there's a crapload of empty space in there, letting you know you're not getting much for your money. I don't see many people scooping this up (much like the Jabba/droid CW BP that seems to warming the shelves everywhere). I also saw the Ambush on the Vulture's Claw BP, which I did buy.

RE: SDCC - Bought a crapload of McQuarrie artwork, along with the McQuarrie Fett bust and the Blackhole Stormtrooper statue from GG. Stayed away from Hasbro this year - will probably order a Force Unleashed Commander from HTS ... it's worth paying the $5 shipping fee to avoid the long lines and general insanity of their booth.

Wow, just got back from an exhaustive 5 days at the SDCC. It was great seeing some of you there. On the way back, I decided to stop by a couple Walmarts and was able to pick up the Walmart BAD set and all of the first 2-3? waves of Clone Wars, except for Cade Bane. I'm so glad that I no longer collect carded figures, there must have been at least a full wave of repackaged figures in these CW waves. I must have spent more on SW figures today than in the past 6 months, and that was just 1 of each to open.

I think the new card design is going to make collecting more difficult. It looks like the only quick way to tell the difference between CW, Legacy and Saga Legends is by the color stripe on the top of the card. I was just looking through the CW and Legends and was having a hard time. Now imagine the store employee who have to scan the pegs for inventory, there's no way they'll know or care? if the figures are from different lines.

I guess it will go up from there as the 2010 SDCC gets closer. One thing they did change is they are limiting preview nite to just 14,000. Don't know how many usually come, but thats what the computer said. So I went a head and bought next years at the con.

Only saw JT and Snags. No one else from RS either. One thing for sure Steve was really working JT. Next year Steve ease up on the guy, I mean he's doing it for free, or is he?lol Anyways GG 's booth reminded me of SSG, a ghost town. :thumbsup:

Wish I had been able to go to SDCC, but maybe next year (or CV). I haven't seen anything good in Burbank for a long time. I have to say, when I saw the new carded figures, the packaging was so petite, I almost thought they were keychains. Even though I'm done with Hasbro- I will have that Luke/Vader funeral pyre set, unless they announce a diorama first, and of course ice-cream maker guy.

I'm selling a few statues/maquettes to pay for some home repairs. I'm only asking exactly what I paid, minus shipping.

GG Slave Leia statue $125
GG Clone Wars Animated Maquette Obi Wan (in armor) $200
GG Luke on Tauntaun statue $120 (box has a dinged corner)
GG Roron Corobb Animated Maquette $45 (I paid more for this one)

These are all great, with box and COA, from a non-smoking, sunlight/pet free home.

:D It was great seeing Crunchy, Commtech, Anthony and meeting Bluesnags for the 1st time down at the con. I would've loved to have met figrin & darkagent too. Have to hit u guys up next time.
So there was a SSC party?? What's the deal to gettin into this one? I've never been to a specific 'party' after 4 cons. :( Love to check one out. How was it??

I hope they limit preview nite next yr., cuz man it was INSANE this year. Double or triple the crowd from last year.

At figrin's favorite PC walmart on Monday I picked up CW Gree & ARF trooper. First figs I've bought on the new card. And surprised I found them at like 3pm. They also had 4/5 of the new BAD double packs. They are gone now. Called my friend & he picked em up. At sepulveda Target I picked up a Space trooper to finish my HK-47 off with the left arm. (& I'm gonna take back an older Spacetrooper & return). Also saw the Geonosis assault (aka we can't give u 2 pilots b/c we're cheap) BP.

p.s. --I got 2 ARFs --one of them had hips that seemed close together, the other had some that were wider apart. Weird. Anyone know anything about this?

SDCC clobbered me this year. And I didn't run into most of you jerks, shoulda posted in the SDCC 09 get together thread!!! Jerks. ;) I also picked up a cold, which is a bummer.

Sightings in San Diego were as follows:
- Wal-mart had 4A-7 waves, ARF Trooper wave, and Transformers deluxe wave 5 (Arcee 1 per case) and voyager Long Haul wave (great figure), as well as Jetfire. FINALLY got my friggin' ESB wave Emperor to complete E-3PO.
- Target had Transformers deluxe wave 4 (Ice Cream Truck Twins seem to be scalperbait, as they were all snatched, as was all but 1 Jolt) and scout class Dune Runner.
- TRU had a layer of dust, and Human Alliance Bumblebee for $35. I ordered off HTS for $30 instead.

I picked up a few items at Comic-Con, but I haven't even had a chance to go through it all yet so you get no tales. I did win a 12" Sideshow Palpatine 2pack though, that kicked ***.

I have mobile web browsing on my phone but I wouldn't know where to look up what's in what case. With no call back :( I left it alone. I know employees at my local stores who will open stuff up for me, but I didn't feel it was right to ask when I wasn't absolutely sure I wanted stuff from that assortment.

NEW FINDS

The large fighter assortment is out. I did not see the Y-wing, but it might have possible been there. They had 2 ARC-170 fighters FOR $64!!! :mad:

In 2005 I bought this for $30! Luckily, I had no plans to buy any more, though I like the ship.

They also had the new Deluxe Figures: Anakin on the Cancell, the Crab Droid, and I forgot what else - OH! - it was the pilot battle droid on the mini-tank. Needless to say, I didn't buy any of it, but some of you guys might want that stuff.

They had the new CW figures, but not Ahsoka and Anakin. I've never seen those figures but I've heard some of you guys found them. It'd be nice if I could.

I got my Clone TurboTank and I'm going to open it up here in just a few minutes. I'll post what I think in the TT thread.

Oh, they also had the new GALACTIC HEROES: Ackbar and Numb, Stormtrooper and Rebel Fleet Trooper, Chewie, RA-7 and MOUSE DROID. Honestly, I really don't need those and just couldn't pull the trigger.

From that link:

"You have to shave all the ridges that are on the inside. Shave also the glue spots, you will have to apply glue later on them when you are done. All this shaving of the stuff inside will make the dome deeper and have more room for the head. I did snip the peg a little bit but it's not really necessary (found that out later). I just dremmeled around the peg so it would go deeper into the hole that's on the head. Also, I didn't feel it was necessary to widen or "flare out" the helmet. Looks good as it is. Finally, use strong glue on the old glue spots, place the dome back firmly and let it dry. Hope this helps."

Jedi: Until you open up the helmet, you will be able to understand the above instructions. Unfortunately, there are no pictures in the thread showing step by step, but it's really simple, really.

If we're gonna pay a premium price for a figure they should at least be starcased. I like Ponds, but I may take him back later as he was kind of an impulse buy.

Saw repacked comic packs at Burbank today in the new red package. Looks nice, I guess it's been a while since that first couple waves were out (vader, han, chewy, etc) so at least kids can get the OT characters.
Hoping to still find the last few leagcy figures (leia, Luke, etc) if they repack them in the new Build a droid packaging I guess I don't m ind, but I want to get them. I have seen Leia twice at Rite Aids, but they were12 bucks each!

idk --but he is a TRU exclusive and I highly doubt he'll be repacked, just as Target's Cmdr Fox will not be. It also ****es me off that there was no starcase. $10 price point warrants a starcase. Hasbro also screwed us on the case with CW Holo Grievous.

They appeared to be out of SE, Destro and baroness as far as movie figures. Had a few exclusive Barbecues, no Fireflies :sad:. A good assortment of the dlx vehicles, pretty much all. They had one larger size artic vehicle left and one black Cobra Hummer (with cowcatcher :p) left.

nothing good for SW, but had a few AT-TEs and a BMF

TF Ice Cream Trucks, about 5, at Wal-Mart in Duarte, as well has 4 of scout-class Scalpel. They also had the new Clone Wars Role Play Ultimate Blaster, and CW Space Helmet Anakin.

Target Duarte had a single Human Alliance Sideswipe, which I bought.

Interestingly enough, I always find something that I've been looking for when I go to Crenshaw WM, which is only around once every other month.

As far as WM's go, I've started making the trek out to Valencia WM. While the store looks many, many times better than Crenshaw and Panorama, the toy stocking seems no better, if at all.

:thumbsup: Awesome! That place LOOKS like the type that should be avoided. I didn't care one lick how much closer it was than the next one, it was skangy.


Valencia I've only been to once, it's quite a drive. It worked because I was going to Newhall Ranch WM where someone stashed something for me, and there was a TRU there too, so it made sense to make a big adventurous run when I knew there was a definite payoff. But it didn't look so good that I'd go back regularly.

So when it comes to Walmarts, we really don't have decent options in SoCal, do we? Great. Just great.

Actually, the one I called Valencia WM is probably what JT called Newhall Ranch? The one with a TRU right next to it (you'd think that combo would be a gold mine for toys!) I believe there are 2 other locations northwest and northeast of that one but I haven't ventured out there as I don't know the area that well. I know how to get to the aforementioned Walmart, Target on McBean and Magic Mountain and Six Flags Magic Mountain and that's about it.

I picked up a second ARF trooper from La Brea Target today but still have not found a single figure with Clone Cash coupons inside.

Jango Speck
08-23-2009, 10:33 PM
Crenshaw and Panorama City Wal Marts are the two-story variety. For some reason, those are the worst.

99% of the time, when I was hunting, a long late night or early morning run to all the Santa Clarita area WM's was usually a total bust.

That said, I agree with the poster who said that CW figs are sucking them back in. I am still not buying, but I found new waves the other day that looked great. I guess creating a figure based on a CGI show will yield perfect results versus trying to make a figure based on a live action show.

Noticed that Burbank TRU had a crapload of BMF the other day-still full price. Target had the Turbo Tank. Wish I had room for a BMF, but there's just no way.

It's out, but it's $69.99. It's a cool ship, but really? 70 bucks? I don't think so...

Jango Speck:
It's me who was getting sucked back in by the Clone Wars figures. I fought it for awhile, but I just gave up because they look really, really cool lol. The best SW figures they've ever done in my opinion. Heck, I even really like the design and size of the new cards. I'm hooked. And I think you're right...a lot of it has to do with basing the molds off of a CGI show as opposed to reality. It just makes for better looking figures in my opinion.

Figrin Bran:
We really do get the short end of the stick when it comes to Wal Marts. It sucks. There are a couple of Wal Marts past the one in Newhall. One up near Magic Mountain and then a bunch of them up the 14 in Palmdale and Lancaster. It just sucks that we have to drive so freakin' far to get to one - and sucks even more because they all seem to get hit so hard. I rarely find what I'm looking for at Wal Marts, so it's not even worth the gas money for the ginormous drive in my opinion :(

Has anyone seen the Clonetrooper Denal figure? That's the only one I'm missing right now...

I know how to get to the aforementioned Walmart, Target on McBean and Magic Mountain and Six Flags Magic Mountain and that's about it. No, that one you're talking about next to TRU is indeed Valencia. Newhall Ranch is in, well, it's in Newhall Ranch. There's another one not far from there. I took the 5 to the 14, then took a couple roads. Since I was there, I also went to the one in Santa Clarita a few miles northwest (it was closer to the 5 freeway and made a nice 3-stop WM triangle). It's best to either GPS it or do what I did, Google Map it, as the area is quite desolate and a little confusing.


Crenshaw and Panorama City Wal Marts are the two-story variety. For some reason, those are the worst.Crenshaw is a 3-story, but you make a good point. They're also the only WMs in malls. I think it's because they're the only WMs not built to be a WM but built out of other businesses. Oddly, San Diego has a 3-story WM that's super nice, but I am pretty sure they built it for themselves.



It's out, but it's $69.99. It's a cool ship, but really? 70 bucks? I don't think so...Have you seen the box in person? And if so, where?

Even when I was hunting all the time, I never once wished that I had a WalMart in my town or any adjacent towns. I never shopped at WM until I needed SW exclusives- and now I have no reason (or almost no reason).

Anyone have a 12" Ark of the Covenant mail-away? I'd be willing to trade for some SW figures or older vehicles, or cash.

Spotted the Yoda & Jek Wal-mart 2pack at WM Crenshaw.

Spotted and bought the Corporate Alliance Tank Droid at Target West Hollywood. It's a pretty decent size, and I'm glad to see they put in not 1 but 2 cockpits, one for a driver, the other for a gunner. The center tank tread works and is fairly smooth. It seems like this would have wold very well when ROTS came out, no idea why they made something like the Wookiee Flyer but not this. No footpegs on the outriggers though.

Found the Clone Wars Wal-Mart Exclusive 2 packs tonight. Found both sets: Thire & Rys and Yoda & Jek. These are by far my favorite thing released for Clone Wars yet!
Also found a ton of the new Wal-Mart Exclusive Evolutions Packs - I don't collect these so I left them behind, but they did look pretty cool - especially the Clone Commando pack. PM me for location info.

The only thing I'm really trying to find now is Ahsoka's Jedi Starfighter. So if any of you see that when you're out & about, do me a favor and stash that badboy for me if you don't mind!

I stashed Padawan Tano's Starfighter but it's all the way out in Valencia (McBean and MM Parkway) Target.

I found the latest wave of JLU packs at La Cienega Target! The remnants of that wave were also at Glendale Target so I don't know if any of you got them or El Senor Sanchez did.

I thought about heading to WM Crenshaw as well but didn't.

Burbank Target had that Ki Adi Mundi and Tusken Raider comic pack. Also had Wedge's X-Wing and remnants of the wave with old man Kenobi with Leia hologram. Also, several aisles over, was a set of new Ultra Stylized Bobble-Heads: Yoda, Vader, Chewie and Boba Fett. They are in cyllindrical packages like Order 66 was.

Yesterday i came across the commando and pilots evolutions at porter ranch walmart (had to pay the full 24.98)depressed by not finding the imp pilots i went to my local walmart today and found a s*load of evolutions when iwent to purchase the imp pilots i missed they did not ring up as usual i told him it was 14.96 and it worked (f.y.i.: go to electronics to ring out their to lasy to check) i then went home to gather more cash and go back to repurchase the others and return the rediculously priced 24.98 ones. when i got back they were removed from the shelf but i did come across a supposedly rare sandstorm chebacca mynock only to find on my way out a disturbed collector with a y-wing at the checkout probably upset by the evolutions and thus him prob being the reason they were removed. - thats my rant i know its long no sign of the tpm wave or occtuparra droid.

What I posted last night was this:

I'm selling two Acme Giclees from the original Clone Wars cartoon. One is Light of the Jedi, and the other is Shadow of the Sith. They are $89 each (original price) unframed, or $100 with the metal black frame that I put them in.

BTW, TRU has converted the front main display area back to Star Wars, perhaps in anticipation of CW season 2?

The last deleted post from this thread was June 29th, 2008. Is it possible you previewed them but didn't actually post them? Or perhaps posted them in a different thread? It's possible there was a system glitch, but there would be more than 1 report of this if that was the case.

Picked up the older Preview exclusive Tie Fighter today at Rite Aid for 19.99. My first larger wing Tie, for 20 bucks, I couldn't resist. They were on the top shelf along the edge of the store, had a dozen or so. They also had the CRIMSON EMPIRE 6 pack (multi color guards). Passed on that one for 19.99. While I was looking though, a little kid, probably about 5 was interested, so I told his mom where they were. The boy kept saying "but it's got 6 people in it" as a ploy for her to buy it. I think she did! Cool to see little kids get excited about Star Wars.

I got the huge Octoparra Droid at Wal-Mart (exclusive to there).

I also got the Transformers Legends Skids (just out) to go with Legends Mudflap (on scale with Devastator).

They had the Clone Wars 2-packs and the Evolutions sets as well - and Target had the Wedge X-wing, but I wasn't interested.

I did see a cool Galactic Heroes set with IG-86 and a clone ARC Trooper or some kind of specialist (I'm trying to remember). It was cool but I had no need to buy it.

Nug is referring to my throwing all sorts of right shoulder and as$ in the direction of Headphones as he tried to leap over me to grab the new wave of DCUC that I was reaching for. Luckily I heard him running down the aisle behind me and c**kblocked him big time and grabbed the entire 2 rows of figures in one swoop so he could not get them. I gave him a hearty "Thank You" and he quickly scurried away defeated (hopefully never to be seen at my Target again??...doubtful), I put back the crap I didn't want and gave Nug one of the figures. I always give headphones a hard time when he is in the same store as me. I have to, as I know what he is and he annoys the sh#t out of me. I personally enjoy making him run up the stairs.

I finally picked up Cad Bane and Denal from the Gardena WM this morning. Curiously, they had pallets of stuff last night in front of the toy section including Octuptarra Droid cases but they were all gone in the morning with no new product on the shelf. Guess they unload pallets into the store and then haul them to the back?

They did have the DCUD 5 pack with blue Aquaman in place of Lex Luthor! :mad: Disappointing since I've wanted the pack for some time and the sheer lameness that someone pulled a swap and return.

Great Headphones story and pics, guys.

I remember the first time Pink Snags saw Headphones. It was one morning at Pacoima Target. He was scurrying around the toy aisles, wearing his headphones and talking to himself, just muttering nonsense under his breath. Pink looked at me and said, "I always thought you were exaggerating when you described Headphones, but now I see that you were not."
