Toy Hunting 2024

Post by yorktownjoe »

New year thread about sharing what you see while out and about.


Target has a lot of Python Patrol.

Also had Mutt & Junkyard. So I got him in the mail, but could have picked him up in store. Wondering if that will become a new trend?

Patience...

Non-window packaging will lead to more availability.

I'll be watching for deals. Target randomly switches them to 17.49, 12.49, 11.99, and sometimes 9.99. I paid full price first time for fear of missing out. But I'll hunt for deals. There are 5 or 6 Python Bubbles. Watching for deals on those too.

Not sure about Python Copperhead. Hate to buy a figure, take pictures one time and then drop him in a tote.

Same. Ever since I got that Dusty and Zarana from Ollie's for $4.99 I have only been buying Classified Joes for discounted prices. The exception being I just bought a CG and a Retro CG for around $22-25 each on walmart.com. I feel like I was going to lose out especially on the retro one.

A friend told me they had Croc Master at Ross.
No Croc Master, but I found Snake-Eyes and white Timber for $11.99. That's a no brainier. (They only had one.) Also, one Akiko and 2 Xamot's.

I am looking for either Retro Snake Eyes or the v1 version that came with Timber (I think it is listed as Alpha Commandos?). Though I am sure those two will be harder to find. I think its Wal-Mart that has the set for $44.

I have target gift cards i have saved up to get the PP Trouble Bubble but right now they are making me drive into the store for pickup and i don't have the time to drive 30 minutes just for that with my college right now. I find it totally GAY that they can't just ship it too me.

The last few times I have been, my Target has 4 or 5 bubbles. I'll watch for sales.

For those wanting them shipped to them, what can I tell ya? Get a Target Red Card. Free shipping, plus 5% off. If you have gift cards, you can use them to pay the card bill.

If one of us buys something that large, it would be $12 to $16 out of pocket to get it shipped to a buddy.

Take advantage when merchants ship to you for free...

Unless I'm mistaken and they only have store pickup in some areas?? I could be way off. Apologies in advance if that's the case...

Yeah, I don't buy anything from them except Joe's. I wish I could skip them altogether because of their terrible agendas.

But the only other way is preordering Target exclusives on Pulse if they last beyond a few minutes.

For sure and shamefully I have bought a few Joes from them recently. Really want those three Python Patrol's they currently have out (Copperhead, Officer and Tele-Viper) but really wishing they would go on sale.

Hey me too. Actually I don't buy anything from the big box stores except joes and a occasional tf or motu figure.

Hope they don't "figure" out we are only using them for figures. :D

Their goal with exclusives is to get foot traffic so people also buy soda, snacks, clothes, diapers, toothpaste, decor, electronics, and sundry other items.

Just a few bucks for action figures from me...
