Stopped by Target to see about new rebels figs.  Asked a guy who turned out to be the toy manager if they had any in the back.  He looked it up and said they had a case but would not bring it out until the old card saga legends figures (5 figures) were gone. I told him so you have product I want and money to spend, but you won't sell it to me?  He went into a rude tirade about collectors and other BS.  What an A hole!!!   Merced Ca target your toy department manager sucks and oughta be fired!  I promptly left everything else in my cart and left the store. They obviously don't need my money!

Got a wampa rug from EE on their cyber Monday sale.  I've been seeing rebels figures sporadically at the stores. The only 2 I can't find are the inquisitor and chopper.

 I probably should've  but  I felt better voting with my dollars and leaving all the other items I was going to buy that day in the cart unpurchased.  That way I wasn't rewarding rude behavior on the toy managers part.

Target has some of the rudest flipping people that work for them like it is an honor for me to buy shot from them.   I hope you at least called the customer service people to butch.   
Is it time to go home yet?

I find it varies target to target, and employee to employee.   I've had some  go out of their way to help me as a customer.   Just not this one.  But I've got 7 targets in my immediate area so why bother with his one anymore.

Hey darthdan, good find in getting new figures. But is there anymore jedi temple guards your way? I bet a few members that use some help with finding them.

I've only found the two so far, but you can bet I'll pick up extras if I can find them

Found 4 more ad-dp pilots this week.  That give me enough for my walkers and some to pilot the imperial transport when it comes out.

I hit two kohls, one had no starwars and one had an end cap full of them.

I also scored at Kohl's too. I found and bought these 2 packs, Sabine, Wookie, Vizago, and Wicket.
Bought these 2 packs at TRU, Hera, Tie Pilot, and R2-D2.
Target is still a loser store in my area, they used to be better than the rest, not this year.
Now need to find these, 2 AT-DP Drivers, 4 Jedi Temple Guards, and Chopper.

I found chopper, 2 Drivers, and 3 jedi temple guards at SCC for a good price. $8 a piece. Better than eBay prices.

Fair price when retail is so spotty in having the figures you need

Almost bought the death star commander 3.75 fig but just didn't want to pay 12.99 for a figure that wasn't all that new.   Still need to find  Wolffe and Doom from this wave though.

I finally bought 6 figures today. Constable Zuvio, First Order Stormtrooper, Flametrooper, Tie Fighter Pilot, Poe Dameron, Resistance Trooper.
But I wish their elbows and knees would bend, much better figure if they did. Open them up for my son, they just look cheaply made. Better they just stay in the package and not be play with.  ???

Hope all had a great Christmas & enjoyed Ep 7 .. I have seen it now 5 times...& have done all I can to keep up with so much Star Wars things out there now.. from Apples & food to Kay Diamond Pendants & makeup too? & hunting has been a challenge with the Scalpers Awakening too.. I have discovered how they find & get the good stuff after infiltrating the online groups they prosper from...they use brickstreet.com & check local retailers for stock items & UPC codes for cases or individual items & get them 1st to resell on ebay etc.. The trick is to find at right prices.. I got TRU Rancor Pit for $59 Doorbuster deal & Black Friday deals on all exclusives & for really good prices so I went nuts..
The Insanity Awakens too.. this is the haul so far.. I hope I am still allowed to post here? been a while..was not sure if I was welcome?
The future is going to be filled with Star Wars from now on.. I embrace that future & know I am doomed.. Hot Toys & Sideshow are killing me & 6 inch figs are a must complete thing for me too.. that damn OCD...
