Hear the news about Baltimore being on the shortlist for C5!!!!!
I think I would convulse with joy if that actually happened. I'm also Ok with Chicago, since my best friend lives there.

Still, I'm overjoyed that Baltimore is on the list.

Re: Spotter Thread

Happy Birthday Scott! Deb reported on our forums that she found the GH at the TRU in Rockville last Thursday but when she took them to the checkout they came up as not to sell until 7/26 --- so it might take a little persuasion to be able to purchase them --- heck you could pull out the birthday 'card'

Re: Spotter Thread

Severn Super WM had a ton of comic packs --- was there yesterday and the pegs were barren --- today they restocked, but all with comic packs.

Re: Spotter Thread

Several Targets I went to had every SW item on clearance - and for some reason most seem to have a ton of the Order 66 Packs left - even though they had disappeared off shelves for awhile.

Seems like the clearance extends to every SW item except Comic Packs.

Re: Spotter Thread

Picked up the the first two waves of legacy and part of the first clone wave (the ones I wanted). They have three more boxes of clones wave 1, two or three boxes of wave 1 legacy and four boxes of the new saga legends.
Also had box of evo.
Only reason I got the figures was because the girl scaned the old TAC figures 24 times.

Re: Spotter Thread

My 3 Targets have been hit/miss on clearance. One has all SW on sale, but nothing good left...but they did have 4 066 pieces at 50% off, but scanning rang 30% off - looks like someone pulled a return from another Target to make $4...???
Another has nothing on sale except O66/Rancour, at 30% off.

I got tempted yesterday. Been checking DPCI -0877 every time I'm in a Target - it changed to "Yes" yesterday for the BMF at just one of my local ones. I was soooooo tempted to have them pull from the back, but decided I'd rather sit on my $150 for a few more weeks....preferrably until Nov.... However, I know I need to stop there on the way home from work....the "thrill" of the hunt is pushing me towards getting this earlier than planned...

Re: Spotter Thread

Wal-Mart in Mount Airy...

I was able to grab all 8 of the new CW 3 3/4" for my neighbor Tim along with the 4 new Galactic Heroes for myself.


Happy Belated Birthday to Me!!!

To think I didn't find them one day before. Oh well, now I have to find the Cinema Sets... btw Wal-Mart is now carrying the Target Exclusive X-Wing and Jabba GH Cinema Sets. I didn't buy them but they had two full boxes sitting on the floor. I verified by cracking one open thinking it was a new set I needed. Left them there.

Re: Spotter Thread

grabbed the first 8 Clone Wars figures from my Target in Abingdon yesterday using the DPCI #. But only five of them had the first day of issue sticker on them. Anakin, Obi, and Commander REX did not have them.
Thanks Jason

Re: Spotter Thread

Target had Legacy and CW basics on the pegs - saw several UGH stickered ones as well. Passed on all. Which was really tough to do.

At $7.49 a pop - i've decided to wait this line out and pick them up later.

Re: Spotter Thread

Sorry Gaithersburg Target at Rio.
Columbia target is more strict about shelf dates and may not pull it for you. It depends on who you ask and when.

Don't ask Jesse the manager there--what a jerk...and definitely not a SW fan. I hope he won't be there for Midnight Madness.

Re: Spotter Thread

Springfield Mall Target has Clone Wars and Legacy (well the 2 figs leftover from the morning rush) LOTS of CW 1st day of issue figs.

I am not interested in the CW line and now that all figs are priced @ $7.99(!!!)and add the fact that I will need to buy repaints and repacks of Legacy just to get the droid parts means this collector is just about to hang up his hat and leave this crazy world of collecting...or at the very least be very, very picky with what I buy from now on.
$8.00 is rediculous and completely counter to why I collect figures. It used to be a reasonably cheap hobby...especially when ROTS figures were going for like $4.

Too bad most collectors are obsessive compulsive types to the point that an organized boycott would do nothing to drive down prices...since no one would have the self control to not buy anything for a few months.

Stupid broken capitalism!!!


If I'm going to be spending that much for 1 figure...I think it's time to step up to MR and Sideshow stuff.

Re: Spotter Thread

Reston Target has been very generous for the past several days. The rest of NoVA Targets... not so much.
