There's always room for Boba...
They can release the same exact sculpt/paint/repack of Boba every two months and we would all get it and would always be the hardest figure to find.
I probably shouldn't say that too loud...just kidding Hasbro.

Found some decent deals today, but still couldn't pull the trigger on a $35 AT-ST. I did pick up the $20 Dewback and $17.50 Octo Droid I also found in Athens. I also couldn't pass up the $34.98 Wedge X-Wing at Heath Target. I wanted to pass on it really bad, since I already have like 3 of the big X-Wings, but alas, I left Target with it.

I was pleased to buy the following 2-packs in Lancaster:

Spacetrooper/Clegg Holdfast
Jawa/Leesub Sirlin
Darth Sidious (holo)/Rum Sleg

I needed all but Rum Sleg, and I passed on the others until now.

I begrudgingly picked up the Boba Fett and BL-17 droid factory set today since it was the last one in the area, but only because I had a $10 giftcard and really wanted to own BL-17. I still cant believe these sets were priced at $17, its such a rip-off.

No problem.
Glad I could help.
That's what the forum is for.

Swung by Centerville last night and Walmart had a complete set of ESB figures minus the Snowtroopers. Since those are the only ones I need still, I left empty handed. I've seen ESB four times now, and not one snowtrooper yet.

Target had the value packs with legacy & legends mixed together.

Dayton Mall Walmart had value packs with a bunch of legacy figures. Nothing to get rid of the pegs & pegs of legends that didn't sell over christmas.

Found an endcap full of figures at Reynoldburg Walmart in those blue display boxes!
Too bad they were all legends & CW!
They still have the Dewback & AT-ST at full price too!

Anyone else read how Target is planning to change it's stores to be more like Walmart? Thought it was interesting and was wondering how it would affect the Toy Department!

That just means they need to stop cleaning, throw toys all over the floor, leave opened and smashed packages on the pegs, and have their employees stare at you and drool when you ask them a question.

I've not read this yet about target changing, lets hope they don't change to much like wal-mart. target could however lower prices and recieve more figures and i wouldn't complain. personally i think target gets the better run of exclusives,and they don't sit on old stock as long as wal-mart does meaning they clearance things out at a faster rate and making new product easier to find.did i mention the hot mom's tend to always be at target. basically they would just need to fire the cleaning crew at night and the store would soon look like wal-mart.

Today I picked up one of the Transformers/SW Blockbuster packs of Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter/Vader's Tie Fighter at the Parma Target. My son will love them in a year or so, I'm sure. Nice deal.

Hey Joel, for future reference, that's the kind of thing you might want to tell someone in a private message.
There are a lot of lurkers and scalpers on here that see reports like that and run up there to steal your stash.

Strongsville Wally has a few pretty tempting blockbuster two-packs.
2-Concept Ki-Adi/DS Luke and 2-Deviss/Scanner Crew dude, among a few others.
The first time I've seen the newer packaging doubled up at Wally's.

Stv Target is surprisingly still sitting on the same two Concept Ki-Adis they've had for a few weeks.
I was tempted to get one as an opener just to give him a home.

Joel....did you get my PM from like two days ago?????????

I'm all caught up for now.
Thanks!

Btw, those of you guys who collect the Hallmark SW ornaments, I saw a few of the TPM Duel ornament at the Strongsville Hallmark store in the plaza where Target is for 75% off. Can't beat that price for a $36 ornament for just $8 plus tax.

The only place I've seen those clearanced is in Athens, OH. Dewback was $20, which I bought, but the AT-ST was still $35, which I couldn't bring myself to spend cash on.

I saw one Dewback and 3-4 AT-STs left on Saturday.

Spotted a Dewback for $15 which I picked up at the Morse Rd Walmart. It was the only one that I could find. The AT-STs were still full price even though they were in the clearance aisle. Which is better than seeing them for 12 cents off like I did yesterday at the Canal Winchester Walmart. How is 12 cents off a clearance price?

Picked up another concept Snowie and another AT-AT driver yesterday at the Reynoldsburg Walmart.

Found the ESB wave at Dayton Mall Walmart this morning. Picked up the Concept Snowtrooper I was missing. There was an AT-AT driver with the helmet off if anyone needs him.
