I opened the $13 LEGO ILC that I picked up today and it turns out the mini figs were gone. Someone probably bought it, took the mini figs and returned it (which would explain why it was on the shelves long after they all disappeared from LA). So I returned to Burbank Target and got my money back (after explaining the situation to them). Hopefully they don't put it back on the shelf now that they know the mini figs were stolen.
Also, ended up hitting Walmart today and found the following (see pic).
Snags, you have to come to LF TRU sometimes on Sat. morning to check out Spanky's hordefest. While it's good to see Sanchez leaving the store empty handed, that's only b/c Spanky has all the goods in his shopping cart. I must've seen at least 5 Scuba Clones in his cart today. Hootie has been showing up there sometimes as well.
Snags - were those out on the pegs?
TRU Culver City had all of Legacy wave 2 (Clone Wars 1, realistic) today, plus Rebel Pilot Evolutions. TRU W. LA had Imp Pilot Evolutions and both new Hoth battle packs plus the animated BARC Speeder battlepack. Target W.LA had TF:Animated Oil Slick. Target Culver City had 2 Padme Evo sets. TRU Culver City had TF:U Powerglide & Onslaught on Thursday, but I bought the only one of each.
Still looking for Bane Malar, that's my only Legacy figure missing at this point.
TRU Culver City has a B-wing with a missing figure already, classy!
I can't believe how many of you jerks didn't make it to the Thursday lunch, what the hell? Next time, you'll have to come and you'll have to sit in the dog poop. :D
The LA collecting scene is such a pain in the arse compared to San Diego where stuff was findable in the afternoon, unlike the hordes and the scalpers rape and pillage our stores so much worse here!
The quake knocked down almost half my collection, I am not sure what I want to do at this point. It was a whopper, if I hadn't grabbed my monitor it would definitely have flung itself to the floor (and then I couldn't have completed that nifty SDCC Hasbro Q&A article I wrote :p).
Nice score Snags!!!
Lots of goodies at Target this morning. Practically ALL SW was marked down.
Got to make some price adjustments on some old receipts.
Also found the new JLU singles
Grabbed a few more B.A.T.S. from a few w9 cases.
Cars were aplenty too. Got Red Copter & RPM Pit Crew Dude.
JT, I saw around 4 Bane Malars at a store yesterday...forget which but it was either Glendale Target or Los Feliz TRU or La Brea Target. I'll stash next time.
