    Big thanks to Sentry for the Joes w13 stash this morning. Blowtorch is definitely the best of the lot. Not much else I'm looking for right now.

    UPDATE: Lots of new Comic Packs are "In Stock" at HTS. Don't forget HOLIDAY25 coupon.

    Huh. I'm originally "from" that area. I moved there when I was 5 and lived there until I was 15.

    I'm in San Diego now - and I don't need any "old stuff" (pre-2008 toys).

    I'm all up-to-date (though I might buy 1 more complete "mint" KENNER Death Star playset from 1979 - or another Rebel Transport craft from 1981). 3 Twin-Pod Cloud Cars (one day) but I will wait to see if Hasbro updates this vehicle finally - perhaps with launching missiles. Then I'd want the new ones!

    I went to Toys R Us today.

    I saw a lady on the phone talking to someone about Star Wars for a purchase for a kids' present. She ended up buying an ARC-170 and V-19. She was looking at Lego Star Wars, too - but opted for Hasbro. I think she thought the Lego stuff was too expensive.

    Another lady was with her son and told him that he had to wait for Christmas, but that today he could have ONE Star Wars action figure. I didn't see what he picked out.

    But the giant whole store front is still ALL Star Wars - just like it was nearly 6 months ago when I took Slicker to my Toys R Us - and it was probably just like it was set up when SirSteve and JediTricks were here. It's cool to see Star Wars so mainstream, still. However, all the stuff is repetative stuff of what most of us bought on July 26.

    Toys R Us did have this Clone Trooper multi-pack and Battle Droid multi-pack. They came with all differently painted troopers and droids (1 Gonk Droid was in the mix, too). I have no use for that stuff, but a kid would probably find it fun. On the back of the box, they had special assignments for each type of character included. Marketing made an effort.

I mentioned a few army builders and then he offered me an Eel. It turns out that he DOES have a soul. He was actually complaining about Hasbro not shipping his stuff in a timely manner and that he had to resort to raiding the shelves at retail

    Hasbro shipping his stuff, my a*$.....As if he had enough funds to have an account with Hasbro. LOL!

    At Target (La Cienega) today, the Indiana Jones figures were on clearance for $3.80. It looks like they even put out the Last Crusade wave.

    Of course they did, that's why I was there 2 days ago before that happened. *slams head on desk*
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    I thought about buying the Indy toys because they are all on clearance now and offered up so cheap. The Target battle packs (Cairo and the LC Tank) are especially tempting. But honestly - even if someone GAVE them to me - where am I going to dedicate any space to them?

    I'm turning down Batman stuff for the same reason.

    Star Wars, Star Trek, Transformers, Terminator - and I don't forsee having any other room for anything else, even when I have my large dream home.

    As a matter of fact: I'll be carefully considering whether I'll buy any new movie Trek or Terminator stuff in 2009. As to Transformers: ROTF - I'll be carefully selective. I want a Leader Class Starscream to be made, though.

    Star Wars? I'm filling in my dioramas and not buying Clone Wars.

    For all you Lego guys, I found the new Indy Flying Wing and SW ATT and Clone Trooper BP at Monrovia TRU today. Best part was that they rang up at the suggested retail price. No extra dollar or two markup that TRU usually charges. I'd normally get them at the Lego store, but they've been getting these new sets much later than TRU and just couldn't wait.

    Awesome! I was hoping the new Indy sets would appear before Christmas. And naturally, I drove by TRU without stopping this afternoon thinking they wouldn't have anything worthwhile. If these sets are in the ad tomorrow, I'm going.
