And no offense but due to recent trends, that list would be friggin huge if we included Kohls and the Discount chains now since they are getting good loot now too.

Ok, so 2 sets of PoC figures to look out for...
Baltar and RW, its important to know that 1 Case will contain 2 Sets. There are only 4 figures in this set and they ship 8 to a case. They will be shipping 2x of each figure in the case.

So you'll get 2 SE, 2 Shocks, etc per case.

Picked up the 9pk tonight * ......the package is HUUUUUGE!!!

Really......you can't miss it!


*oops....
- edit.
I heard theres a villains 9 pack down the road and I'll be waiting for that!

...Nice...the 'bad boy' package as well. It's going to be hard time finding room for both of them. It's amazing. I've never seen such a large package for such little figures.




Yes Dave ....still talking about SW.
But I'm........

I guess the question is: Are codes really necessary anymore? It doesn't seem like scalpers are going for Star Wars like they used to, if at all. Except for when items are just starting to show up, nothing has really been that hard to find SW related.

BTW...I found a TON of the Vintage 9-pack set at Henrietta last night. Most of the outer sleeves are crushed to some degree. Bummer for carded collectors.

Only to keep cool figures like Thi-sen out of the hands of four year olds.

Neither are the collectors and fanatics no one has disposable income anymore.

Not that anyone was looking for it... but did anyone here remember seeing the Birth of Vader or Desert Ambush
That last Wave of CW figures with Darth Sidious in it?

Buying secondary market for new toys sucks.
Buying from a brick and mortar store with a hottie behind the counter telling you about store credit and magazine subscriptions and how to pre-order Fraggle Rock the Movie is something to get you out of the house.
Buying from EE, HTS, BBTS or whomever is like shooting a frozen turkey sitting in your freezer. (Excluding exclusives)
Where's the thrill of the hunt?

The codes were like a fellow huntsman sounding the horn.

Gamorrean Guard?
Give it 2 more weeks. I found Boba Fetts and Foil Fetts everywhere after the initial wave hit. Only thing I haven't found is a foil Darth Vader and I don't even go to stores or hunt that often.

Is Canandaigua Wal-mart too far out of your way?
(Sorry, seriously asking, not being rude.)


Pretty sure that I saw a couple of cases there the other day.

I'm good either way, and thanks for volunteering.

If you end up taking this over, please add a couple of newer Targets (ex: Chili, Batavia) that opened up since the list was last updated. Also Victor WM can be added.

And obviously, we can get rid of obsolete ones like KB & any K-Marts that shut down (ex: Irondequoit)

Do we want to add Kohls since they actually appear to get in decent stock even if its a bit more expensive most of the time? I dunno, that falls in the FYE category...

I'll show up. Haven't spent more than a few dollars there over the last few shows. I think I ended up spending $5 at the last show and it was for a MST3K dvd.

My oldest ends up spending more on stuff she wants.

I don't think I've been to the past 3 or so Village Gate shows. And I'm pretty sure I spent a total $3 during the last show I attended (LOL). If I don't have anything else going on that morning, then maybe I'll drop by for a little while.

Once you do a master list it should be easy to update the codes hence forth......you could give everyone the list @ VGTS.

no pressure eh?

Depends what it is for.
Store exclusives-possibly.
Mass retailer release probably not.
Like Buda said it's just a matter of time and saturation.
...
Day of the week, bills in the wallet and bills in the mailbox factor in there somewhere to.

At least you got a dvd for your $5, the RAT show charges you five bucks just to look at the tables.


Village Gate is the best free toy show in town.

GI Joe Renegade on The Hub channel is really good. I like it. Started last weekend.

Cobra is the "good guy" with secred world domination tendancies. the Joes are mostly renegades, for speaking out against Cobra and the rest of government.

It's good.

I was honestly more impressed with Transformers Prime.
The dialogue, plot, and animation have been better so far.

All I think of when I watch Renegades is Pika-Duke's hair and Roadblock getting turned into Fat Albert.
