Target Pasadena (on Lake) had a hand full of the new Republic Attack Shuttles on the shelf. They were $79.99.
Found a B-Wing at the kmart near the Grove. I hate Hasbro for making me walk into a Kmart. There were several left as of 7pm tonight. They weren't going anywhere, though.
Target West LA had a TVC Barriss Offee yesterday. I cared so very little. I'm beginning to wonder if Hasbro will ever make product that interests me again, either in SW or TF.
Yeah, the last wave was a Ferret repaint with a Leatherneck repaint, a Mole Pod repaint with an awesome kitbash "Lava Viper" figure, a Rockslide repaint with a Dusty repaint, and the totally new Polar SHARC with a kitbash Deep Six. They wound up at Ross.
IMHO, it was moronic to have the early waves be repaints (aside from the first Rockslide or whatever it was called and the Mole Pod) and save the SHARC, which was quite important in the movie, for a wave that ended up being canceled.
<chaddymac sits in his pimped out office with his b-wing & grilled cheese> :witless:
JT -- lack of interesting product can be a good thing man - saving $!! Although it was shocking and depressing at the same time to see so little new stuff in Hasbro's SDCC displays. Still need to prep your stuff for tomrw :thumbsup:
Fox Hills Target had a lone TVC Weequay Skiff Master, I bought.
Culver City Target had bupkis. Ross there had nothing TF, but 1 more of those x-wing pilot comic packs.
La Cienega Target had a lone TVC Phase I Clone, I bought, all the new Class 1 Fleet Vehicles w/ Figures - I bought Castas (they had 1 more) and both Recon Speeder Fighter Things (they were on clearance price, yay, and will go nicely next to the AT-TE and TX-130) - and they had 2 of the Republic Attack Shuttles which I am still on the fence about.
All 3 stores had the exclusive TF deluxes minus Space Case, and all 3 had non-core sets of the latest Bakugan line on deep clearance, with La Cienega having the Colossus Dragonoid for sub-$10. I hate that I really like Bakugan, because they're way too expensive to buy the rest of the time, but Target has had them on deep clearance twice this year, so it requires a deft hand and loads of patience - oh, and care, as I accidentally bought a duplicate figure and Bakugan in different colors today. :p
Hasbro has been pulling that "stretch the mold budget way too deep" crap on so many of their lines the past year and a half, SW, Joe, and TF are all suffering horribly due to their hopes that the market will simply bear repaints while also bearing drastically higher pricepoints.
In my travel to pan. city walmart (bran's favorite) I stashed an aqua droid. PM or text for location. This store also had 2 CW El Les's on the pegs, which I left.
My friend told me he saw the SW BR commemorative sets at a target in the valley yesterday. Said there were only 6 sets out (one for each movie). Forgot to ask which aisle. Pm or text for locale.
End of line
I have seen the Blu Ray Commemorative sets in two places. Out too are the next wave of Target Vintage 3-packs, of which I scored two of the three. The Attack Shuttles seem to have attacked everywhere I go. I think I'll wait for a nice sale or clearance for this one. Also picked up the new Joker/Harley 2-pack. There was another left along with a couple of Capt. Marvel/Black Adam sets. PM for locations. I also picked up the new Young Justice figures, which I thought were too expensive. Luckily, the SDCC Mattel coupons work on these and the DCUC 2-packs.
Do they make Miss Martian or Artemis in the YJ line? My daughter loves that show, and we were disappointed when McDonald's had their Happy Meal promo and not only only made the dudes from the team, but had Batman, Superman, and Captain Cold (of all people) instead of daring to make the ladies.
Artemis is in the line now and comes with a bunch of accessories. Ms. Martian will undoubtedly arrive at some point.
