I've had nominal success at both. But I feel that some of my blog readers are showing up. Which I guess is a good thing. I put out this information to help people, and entertain myself. So on Sunday I picked up an accessory of sorts...
I got this at Walgreens for 7 dollars and change. I 'm gonna use it as a back drop for my figures, I can fit them on the steps and that way I can take a good group picture without any characters being obscured.
On Tuesday (Monday's my day off.) I went to queens place and picked up Sunfire, or Marvel's Sunfire as he's labeled. I believe that there was a Captain Britain and a Mystique. But since I already have them I passed.
So Wednesday I alternated and went to the SkyView Target, but what was waiting for me was total Fail.
|Does whatever an Iron can!|
I took note that there were more figures in the back, but I didn't want to bug anybody. Which was strange because the employees during the "Target Huddle" were asking me if I needed help with something. But I wanted to leave it up to the Universe for me to find some cool new figures.
On Friday I went back to Queens Place and I got "Lucky" and I found the Secret Wars #1 Comic Pack with Captain America/Klaw! I was elated! It was one per case.
And finally today Saturday I went back to Skyview and I was met with the same "wall of fail". But I decided to bug an employee and get some figures from the back.
I can tell you one thing. The employees at the Queens Place Target seemed reluctant to help on Friday when I was looking for the BTTF DeLorean with the G-Man. But the Skyview guys haven't been corrupted by that...yet.
So I caught a case!
|A case of the toyzies|
I did learn some things.
- Hasbro ships them to Target from Chino California. And then Target ships them to the NYC stores from Amsterdam NY.
- Each box comes with 12 figures.
- This case was labeled Asst W6R2
- It contains the following figures.
- Red Hulk
- Daredevil Variant
- Iron Spider-Man
- Ghost Rider
- Team X Wolverine and
- Captain Britain
So naturally I took the Archangel, A fellow collector wanted the Vision Variant but it was not in the case. I also picked up another Team X Wolverine. I figured that since the Universe or my gut was telling me last time that I should have asked them to bring out a case, so that's what I did this time.
I'm really looking for the Green Hulk and another Thing. But I did pick up a Ronin at the Queens Plaza Target. But I don't remember which day.
Well next week I'm on vacation, so I'm gonna be busy doing stuff. As well as getting some good rest. I hope there is a sale tomorrow seeing how Easter is 2 weeks away. But we shall see. Good Luck Out There!
