By the way, we might be kissing the $19.99 Target battlepacks goodbye. Alhambra Target now has them marked for $21.99. I probably got the last one for $19.99 only because they put it in the wrong spot, where the ARC 170 battlepacks go. Those apparently are still $19.99.
I got a Coruscant clone pack at Alhambra this morning. Saw quite a bit of UGH figures today at two Targets. I don't collect those so I left. There was an Animated Fett UGH at West Covina.

Glendale Target charges $1 more for comic packs.
TRU La Cienega (west LA) now has a stashed Spirit of Hayden figure, PM Funny Money for location (he stashed it). And thanks to Funny Money's stashing on the wave 7 entries I picked up!
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.
Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.
The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
I keep a list by my kitchen counter of whatever I need to buy: paper towels, yogurt, juice - those sort of things are on my list right now.
I will run my errands at opportune "hunting times" when they pull pallets out or in the morning. If I find toys, I'll stay and buy the other items. If not, I'll try a different store. In that respect, I buy more than just the toys.
I am a regular customer. Just because I'm a male around 30 years old does not mean I should be suspect. Actually, most of the scalpers are older.
Collecting isn't fair. Children get screwed over more than anyone because of adult collectors and scalpers. If you don't happen to have a network of friends who also collect Star Wars, or even forum buddies, you're screwed because it's unlikely you'll benefit from stashing. Stashing is a great tool for many, but it always screws your average customer.
It's only "fair" that Target screw us all in this "little" way. What goes around comes around. Collecting isn't for the faint of heart.
