A local Target was having an "AS IS" clearance on several totally undamaged electronics items (I suspect they were just trying to unload stock), and I got the latest Soul Asylum and Will.I.Am albums for $3.46 each, and KISSology Vol 2 for $7.26! (That last one was a real "Excuse me, I need to change these drawers I just crapped in" moment. It even has "Phantom of the Park!")

Also scored some more Alton Brown DVDs on clearance at Marshall's for $3 each. A good day for clearance DVD's, I'd say.

08-17-2008, 12:49 AM
V for Vendetta - turns out I only had 1/3rd of it, read that through and got ****ed that I didn't have the rest, so I dropped $20 on the whole shebang.

Tales Designed to Thrizzle #4 - surprisingly, not in the same purchase or store, my 2nd comics purchase in a week! Good stuff, a few real laugh-out-loud bits, not as good as issue #2 though, and $4.50 seems a little steep, but all funny, no ad-money.

08-19-2008, 09:53 PM
Watchmen graphic novel - went to read the original issues I have, and found I'm missing #3, 4, 6, and 8, which makes the storytelling flow rather difficult. Plus, now I have 2 Alan Moore graphic novels that were reproduced and sold due to their motion pictures, that's gotta p*ss him off pretty good. ;)

Tales to Suffice #1 - $3.50, a pittance! I actually bought this for my pop's birthday in June, it entertained enough to buy again for myself. Comedy in comic books? Never!

2 Reb II Evo sets-one of which for pegger.

Won on eBay-Galactic Heroes Banis Keeg and three of the Cantina Band members (the one I didn't win was Tech M'or).

Then...stupid me...I checked Wal*Mart for the two Galactic Heroes cantina sets...they had them both. Dang, heh heh. So I'm having those two sets ship to my nearest store, and I'll end up having these extra Band members.

Oh, then I DID end up winning a Tech M'or from another seller, go figure...heh heh.

SCORE, Galactic Heroes Rancor set and Kashyyyk AT-RT sets!
Super Battle Droid, Titanium AAT. With this purchase I saved $10! I had my wife buy one of the GH sets and the Titanium and use the $5 coupon from Clone Wars movie program. I then did the exact same thing for the other GH set and the Super Battle Droid, using another $5 program coupon. (I took about 10 programs, just for the purpose of using the coupons, and the theater didn't mind one bit! Like money in the bank, woot.)

Man, I am LOVING this Galactic Hereos line. So freakin' cute, EASY to collect, inexpensive, not too many repacks-I don't get each set just because it's on a different card.

I am in love with the GH line, too. That's why I am wanting to be done with the Clone Army collection, so I can start on the GH sets.

On Saturday I picked up:

1x Dracos/Krieg Imperial Knights Comic Pack.

Heroes Season 2

08-26-2008, 09:43 PM
NECA Player Select Kratos with Golden Fleece armor - been playing God of War 2 the past few nights, great game, and 1 area TRU had the Kratos figure so I figured what the heck. Articulation is good but could be so much better. Paint is very good, sculpting is excellent except it's missing his mid-torso scar from the game (cheapskates recycling the body from the first game). Accessories are pretty decent, though I wish there were chains on the Blades of Athena.

08-27-2008, 11:12 AM
Ooh, JT, if there is another of this one, I need it. I have the one with Medusa's head. If these are not the same figure, then could you pick it up for me. ALso, if you need the Medusa head fig, I can get one for you.

Ooh, JT, if there is another of this one, I need it. I have the one with Medusa's head. If these are not the same figure, then could you pick it up for me. ALso, if you need the Medusa head fig, I can get one for you.

-SalI was talking about the one that came with the Medusa head (although it's not actually, it's Euryale's head, she's a different gorgon, but NECA put Medusa as the name because that's who we know). They had 1 other, but it was in sorry paint shape. I'd also like to have the one with the flaming blades, and the one in Ares armor, but that stuff isn't findable here, I'm guessing not there either.

Birthday haul:
Playstation 3
Biiiiig Millennium Falcon
$100 check
E-Vex video goggles
Swiss army knife

Ikea haul the next day to hold the stuff I got:
Billy bookshelf, 15" wide, white - $35
Lerburg 2' x 2' metal table, off-black - $15

I actually got that 6' 8" bookshelf box into my sporty little car. The back seats fold down and then I had to fold the front seat forward like someone was getting out of the back, which blocked the right mirror, but it actually fit with the trunk fully closed.

08-30-2008, 03:47 PM
I got a really good deal on a BMF (:thumbsup:), which my wife promptly put away to give me for Christmas. (:mad:)

"It could be defective, and by then we wouldn't be able to return it. I better put it all together and make sure it works. ... Uh oh, the mandibles won't come off, it won't fit back in the box, oh well." ;)

Picked up a UNC football shirt for $5 at the football game last night.

Also bought the Transformers animated Megatron.

08-31-2008, 11:47 AM

Imperial Landing Craft
Rebel Transport

I saw the TIE Defender, this thing looked horrible in the package. The wings were bent. They put all that effort into making the wings pivot, but they couldn't make it die-cast? The permanent glued in stand looks cheesy.
I saw two, and both were awful. An easy pass.

08-31-2008, 08:19 PM
My Target finally had Legacy and Clone Wars figures. It's always about two month behind any releases.

$40 worth of gas below $4! Paid $3.92/gal. for the first time in months! Weird to see the price actually fall on Labor Day Weekend.
