But the new Kara... bad planning on their part.
    I didn't know you needed her. I had one in my car for a couple weeks now (bought for a friend but they didn't need it) and just returned it over the weekend.

    It should be Dreadwing, Arcee and 08 Camaro Bumblebee as that assortment has been hitting other Targets.

    I paid more attention to FAB Megs today... wow, Sucketh Maximus! Blackout was Soldout.

    Look at it this way, JT i saved you money and i spared you from having to post a C- review for Dreadwing. Too much kibble on the underside of the plane, a poor color scheme and that bizarre Swindle styled head doesn't add up to a winning design.
    Sadly not, I'm a sucker for deluxes. I'll not hunt for him though, that's for sure.

    True, too bad he doesn't transform into a Frenzy.
    The parts don't disguise that well in robot mode however. I'd love it if they made something the size of a miniCon but was somehow a better Transformer than that Fast Action Battler.
    No kidding they don't disguise well, he looks like a really crappy series of pointy limbs and a goofy head sticking out of a rubiks-cubed boombox in Bot mode.

    Why doesn't Barricade's minicon-sized Frenzy work for you, is it because he doesn't transform?

Same as yesterday, except maybe one extra Supes. Have I mentioned I hate Mattel's assortments? In SW news, lots of Maces still hanging around, with a peg or so of 'anyone else'. DST, Yavin Luke, Tosche Biggs, a couple Hans, Obi-Wan.
    Urk, I saw both Blue Supergirl and chromed Steel at Target Eagle Rock on Saturday, didn't know these were of interest at this point.

    Mattel's case assortments and crappy wave management have ruined this line, it's a real tragedy.

    That's cool FunnyMoney. I remember the Sears' Wishbook was one of the ways I first learned of new SW products when I was a kid.

    Al Gore hadn't invented the internet back then.

    [Why doesn't Barricade's minicon-sized Frenzy work for you, is it because he doesn't transform?
    Basically. It's hypocritical of me considering I don't care if Scorponok transforms, but I'd just like a movie Frenzy that I could play with.

    Man, I had to hunt to find SW in that '83 catalog! I didn't remember (hey, I was 6 back then) that they lumped all SW together back in kids' bedding & jammies. Hope they get a few more years (84 Sears & Penneys would be awesome to see again! TONS of SW)

    Loved seeing Sears get the "Imperial Attack Base" wrong in the photo, with Imps using it (in the description, too!)... can't really blame 'em, since Kenner goofed up on the box art in the first place!

    Look at the prices! $24 for the Millennium Falcon and $11 for an X-wing or Vader's TIE Fighter.

    The electronics pages are funny too. Those are record players and tape decks. It is a form of ancient earth technology before the CD even - and way before the i-Pod.
