Thanks for that heads-up. There are several Kmarts in my local area and I might have to check 'em out and see if they have anything worth picking up for the price.

You never know what you'll find on the pegs when you walk into a Kmart.

No problem! I wasn't for sure if it was K-Mart or Target. New figures on the pegs threw me off either way! :p

Remember when Hasbro fired all those people back in 2011 I think the people they replaced them with or at all have no business being in the toy business.....

At this point they're probably focused more on the company's bottom line and cutting costs wherever they can find them. Articulation and paint apps decline, the prices keep rising and the mediocre and uneven distribution continues. If the product's not living up to their expectations, it's not the fault of the kids, parents and collectors who buy it.

If you have a Kroger Marketplace gorcery in your area, they are running a $7.99 sale on all TBS 3.75" figures this weekend (regular $12.79).

They had about 3-4 of cases of the orange card TBS Hoth wave...grabbed a Toryn Farr, Snowtrooper Commander under the sale price.

If they could just get the figures in stock, they'd have no problem moving figures like Chopper, Inquisitor, Kallus for that price. Just a shame that this stuff didn't hit like it should have in time for Christmas gifts...!
