|Carded Renegades Wave 1 in hand. Woot!|
Not a Build A HQ update, but still on the topic of collecting. I found the GI Joe Renegades first wave of figures at the midway Target yesterday here in St. Paul. I hadn't seen them anywhere for the last few weeks, including Walmart where it sounds like they have been showing up, according to the regular collecting websites like hisstank.com and theterrordrome.com. I was worried they were going to pass me by. But nope, after working out at the gym yesterday morning I ran by Target just to see if anything was in. And lo and behold, the new wave was fresh on the pegs. I just grabbed one of each, leaving the rest for the next guy or gal. Its great to have these acquisitions off my 'to buy' list.
The best part? When I took them up to the register, they were not in the computer. The cashier asked me if I remembered how much they were, and I said I think they were $7.99 or something like that, but I didn't remember. I said I could run back and check.
"No problem" she said. "They aren't in the computer? I think they are $6.00." And she winked at me. So check that out- I found a wave I have been looking all over for, and I got them for 25% off. Thank you Target.
Until next time,
