  1. On collectable items, which SW figures fall under, yes there is. But I've never seen anyone ever enforce it. wayyyy back when there was only 1 target on long island (back in 97) the managers were very strict on limiting the amount of figures one could purchase. they even went as far as saying we could only buy "1" figure per visit. they soon did away with that when they saw us making multiple trips to the car and back to the store. then they only allowed us "1" of each figure.
  2. He actually owns a booth at one of the local flea markets. I was there when the guy was walking out and the lady at the register said he spent over $300 on SW figures. In all likelihood he can't afford to buy direct from Hasbro. This guy seems always appear when new figs hit. BTW - This was at a Target on LI NY. WHAT'S UP K-DOG. chillen, paison! glad you were finally able to score that wave when you back to Levittown. Now we gotta get some for Nick!
  3. My first question that comes to mind is why doesn't this guy buy direcly from Hasbro if he has his own Toy Shop? The guy is stupid buying from retail then marking up the prices. I hate it but that is how this guy chooses to make his living....that is what makes America great that's a good question! I dont know, however.
  4. This morning, someone who works for a toy collectible store gets into Target at opening. He nabs 3 cases of the Cosucant wave. Now, when the guys opens shop, he is undoubtingly going to be charging an arm and a leg for these at his Levittown store. I thought there was a limit at Target? how does anyone feel in regards to this scalper?
  5. I dont care what grade this is in, its not worth the insane amount he is asking!
  6. that sucks. It was definetly the overnight guys. I dont even bother going to my local Toys R Us because there are so many people that work there that buy up all the collectibles.

  8. EPHANT MON This has got be the best figure Hasbro has produced, and well worth the retail price of $4.99 (I also nabbed for for $1.99) Darth Vader with removable helmet is a good second.
  9. I take it you were there at 8am? I hate it when the people that work at toy stores are collectors. But those are their benefits.
  10. Its the internet and everyone wants proof because they dont believe anything. no offense to anyone. Months ago, someone posted up a link here to a hasbro site that listed some question for thier GI JOE line. they had stated that although the 3 3/4 line will stictly be an online deal, they would still carry exclusives to toys r us. One irrate fan in here demanded proof that i had read this and became hysterical to the point where he stared cursing like a little boy. like I said, people need proof or otherwise your considered a liar. I was surprised that the cody wave hit 2 stores on long island yesterday. I went out and hit 2 more stores and checked thier computers and they did not have any at all in stock, and these stores were only miles away from each other. today, they still didnt have any. so, not everything hits an area all at once. perhaps they are still in the trucks, waiting to be unloaded. who knows?
  11. I had to ask the kid in the back to get them for me. my hot wheels friend was in there earlier this morning and he typed in the sku and they had them. so I took my chances in going and getting them. i didnt want to give up because he has saw them a half hour ago at another target but he was only able to get me the ki-amand holo figure out of the bunch.
  12. well, you can add long island to the list. scored them about a half hour ago at target! the downside of it is that 4 of them had bent j-hooks, right out of the box, but thankfyll, they weren the clones!
  13. LMAO! THATS SO TRUE! I remember back in the day that hasbro released full cases of SLAVE LEIA and this is when they were shipping 24 figures to a case. the box was even marked "SLAVE LEIA" on the outside by hasbro.
  14. I found one, too today but the UPC was ripped off. how much did it go for in your store?
  15. Oh cool.. they added more last night/this morning. CLONES!!!

  17. picked up 4 commander bly's and 2 clone troopers today for a $1 each. the manager said hes got more so Im going back later to see what else he's got!!
  18. I'll keep my eyes peeled.
  19. they had others that I should have picked up like chewbacca, preggy padme, battle droids and super battle droids. I should have nabbed them as well.
  20. sure, just pm your address and its yours. just pay the s&h.
  21. sorry, batteries were dying on the camera. they found some figures in the back of the store and I grabbed them all. this is the second time they found figures in the stockroom within the past couple of weeks. Im hoping they pull out the lost CLONE WAR cartoon figures!
  22. scored these today for $14.12:
  23. i dont get why they increase the price then declare a clearance on items that are coming in. figures walmart would screw this up somehow.
  24. yes, you get to go to alot of places but its hard work aloto the time, especially with competition. I do it part time but it feels like a 24/7 job!
