    btw it is good to see the forums up again.

    I usually go early evening on the ride home from work (3 Targets & 2 WM & 1 TRU) or the 8:30pm to 10:30pm pallet run to TRU,Target & WM that are 15 min South of my house and that has been successful on occassion (this week was the HW collector and scalper Psychology observation experiment.

    I did pick up the unleashed just to make sure I had them and had to field off questions from the the HW Scalper (any variants there?)

    In Tycho's new world, $400 gets him and his girl a limo ride to a seaside resort hotel downtown San Diego, where $100 dinners are served before Queensryche takes the stage only several seating rows away, followed by fireworks over the port, and a night's stay in the ambassador class suite, to be followed by breakfast with the band the morning after.

    The trade-off would be

    $66 Sideshow Mace
    $66 Sideshow Qui-Gon
    $66 Sideshow Darth Maul
    $45 Lucas Family 4-pack*
    $40 Disney Star Tours new droids*
    $50 8 Hem Dazon (Arcona) action figures*
    $18 3 Chief Chirpa action figures*
    $20 extra Hailfire Droid for lack of Corporate Alliance Tank Droid from ROTS
    $29 for whatever else I *might* be compelled to buy

    Like any of that crap is going to really make me any happier...

    *stuff I'll likely buy anyway

    In any case, I'm actually thrilled to be moving on with my life and not pinching pennies to spend so much on Star Wars as I used to have to do.

    I usually hit up the Wal-mart over lunch because there are multiple restaurants nearby. I don't really make any dedicated SW runs anymore, not with gas being what it is.

    Same here. Thankfully Target is on my way to work, I drive right by it. Therefore I check them more often than anywhere else. WM is on the other side of town so I maybe go there once a week, sometimes twice, sometimes not at all.

    I hit WM that late because I get off at 1:30 and usually need to pick someting up for the house, so I look at that time. I dont go out in the morning to Target unless something is there like an exclusive that I need.

    On the weekend, I don't get up early often enough for me to hit the stores, it is usually in the early afternoon that I manage to visit the local retail stores. Of course by then, the pickings are slim, but I do often find what I need.

    Every weekday I am out the door by 7:20 but work beckons and a toy run before would take too much time away from where I need to be. Although I do entertain thoughts of making a quick trip, I know better.

    I usually hit one Target(almost never Walmart) before work, between 8:30 a.m. and 9:10 a.m, which lets me get to work at 9:30 a.m. I do that on average about once every two days.

    I would say that I stop by after work maybe once every two to three days nowadays. Usually Target or TRU. Occassionally Wal-Mart. WM I usually visit on a weekend.

    I don't really like going to Wal-Mart. In the morning it usually seems like a waste of time. And I absolutely never go to TRU in the morning unless it's a weekend, and even then, I rarely go during opening.
