Random holiday finds
Had breakfast at "The Brig" in Dana Point yesterday and noticed they had a bunch of POTF and TPM figures for sale in the lobby. Weird stuff...
Was in Burbank Mall today and stopped into Chubby13 for fun- not much SW to be found, except for a prominently displayed POTF Desert Skiff for $79.99. It said "with figures", and when I looked, it had all the characters from the movie scene (only Luke should be in there), but they had all fallen down, and there were a bunch of white glue puddles all over the deck. I couldn't believe my eyes.
In any case....
Palm Desert Target: Nada
Palm Desert Ross: Nada (unless you count two Cobra Furies with Alley Vipers torn out of them, finally marked down a whole $3.50 to $8.49... I first saw them in this condition this summer, so it's nice they eventually marked 'em down, I suppose)
Palm Desert Marshalls: Nada
Palm Desert TJ Maxx: Two metric tons of Revenge of Cobra figures. Seriously. Revenge of Cobra. And these were new arrivals. Sad, eh?
Cathedral City Target: Nada
Palm Springs TJ Maxx: Same as the one in Palm Desert. There was also one Ripper on a completely brutalized card.
Beaumont Wal-Mart: Nada
Oh they are exceptional, JT. For me (with none found thus far) they are EXCEPTIONALLY hard to find :D

In said Inland Empire, just the discarded (pun always intended) figures from pre-holidays on the pegs. Far too many Clone Wars/Legends figs. Nothing new. Yet...
Cue the Beatles' song "One After 909!"
No signs of the TPM wave though I did find a lone Darth Maul at Glendale Target around 2 weeks ago.
I've seen TF Sky Shadow and Junkheap at a few Targets so they shouldn't be too hard to find for everyone.
Picked up a Vintage Tauntaun today for half off (about $12.50), which is a more reasonable price.
Have a Happy New Year everyone.
Picked up the Target-exclusive Hostage Crisis 4-pack for $12.48 at Culver City. It's not a bad set, they did a great job with the Weequay bounty hunter reusing the torso from Hondo Onaka, and Robonino is not bad either. Still, no way in hell I would have paid full price for it, the 2 Commando Droids are fine but I have plenty of those guys, even if these are in pirate drag.
Found some of the TPM vintage wave (Anakin, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Battle Droid and Darth Sidious) at Walmart today. They also had the new Darth Maul packaged figures, of which I picked up the Clone Wars Phase II Clone Trooper, and new Battle Packs and vehicles.
