Goodness gracious, JT! I've had those when-it-rains-it-pours periods before. :( I send my good wishes and thoughts your way.
I saw the Target exclusives Landspeeder and Tauntauns (with 2 figures, and just in the box), but passed. I did get a Death Star Escape Luke only for its Fett mail-away form.
JT, we talked on the phone, but I hope you're hanging in there.
Today I arrived at Target at 8:03 am and I just missed a Seripas. They got one new case of CW and I saw another collector walking around with it. He's a cool guy and it was his first. I'm looking for my 2nd Seripas, so it's fair (though I did consider beating him up and stuffing his body behind the diapers in the toiletry section and escaping with his Seripas figure, but I did not).
You have to get there before the store opens!
I've no finds lately but my sympathies to you and your family, JT
My sympathies JT.
For anyone still collecting DC Universe Classics, the Target exclusive S.T.R.I.P.E. wave is hitting right now. I was also able to pickup a 2007 Lego Y-Wing from Burbank Target today for $5. It was covered in a coat of dust. Looks like it was stashed and forgotten and just recently found by an employee.
Latest set of Target exclusives have hit the SFV. Left behind 2 Landspeeders and a Search for Luke at NoHo. Nothing left at Burbank.
Nothing special to report finding, but I went to Frank & Sons for the first time last Sat. Pretty big place. Didn't find anything ultra amazing, but the newest of the new was there -tlc wave 8 & 9 and new CW, although the prices weren't great. Also met up with Deathstardroid and Rogue Leader (of deathstarplans2.net fame) and hit up a smattering of OC comic shops and a target which had the new Tauntaun single pack. One of the stores was Phat Collectibles (i think). Ok place.
Man, so many movies/BR I want out now, but can't afford. CW season 3, Thor, Capt. America, Green lantern, SW BR, etc.
Captain America is out? I want to get that one.
Cowboys and Aliens, by any chance?
Yeah Tycho. Cap dvd & blu came out yesterday. Not a lot of exclusives except Bestbuy has some vintage comic packaging on the back of the bluray box i think. I'll probably catch flack for this, but i want the new Coldplay album as well and will probably grab that at Target tomorrow. Best price. If Thor BR ever goes on sale at Fry's for $16 or lower, I'll probably cop that too. Hard to look at the ads though, b/c i don't get the newspaper regularly
