    Neither my Walmart or my meijers had anything out at midnight. Did get the carbonized Sith Trooper off Amazon though. Gonna go to target in a couple hours.

    Went into Walmart at 6 am. (Mine closes at 2 am and re-opens at 6, weird, lol). Went straight to toys. They stocked the full Black Series wave with first editions. Got Cal Kestis and The Mandalorian as First editions! Not thiry seconds after another collector followed behind me and purchases the rest of the wave. So my Walmart is cleared out a minute after opening, lol.

    Went to two meijers. One had only the lego out. The other had the whole case assortment, but only in the black and red boxes. They also had all the vintage figures, minus the Rey. All the cards were pretty awful though, so I ended up passing.

    Waiting for target now. Online said they'd open at 7 am, but out front it says 8 am so... yay. Got 90 minutes of waiting. Can't complian though as I got my two first editions, and I wouldn't have if I didn't go out when I did.

    I’m off to check on stores. I ordered the Carbonized Sith Trooper from Amazon, and have the Carbonized version of The Mandalorian for store pick up at Target. Checked GameStop and they open at 9 instead of 10, so we’ll see what’s available.

    Yep! I gotta head over to Gamestop after target. I have a game I need to pick-up (Ghostbusters Remastered) and hoping to get the carbonized Second Sister as well.

    I have to go to the town over from me cause “my” Target wouldn’t let me do store pick up on anything. Oh well, at least I’m getting what I “need”

    I’m at Target grabbed the First Edition of Mandalorian and Second Sister Inquisitor (white boxes) currently at Guest services waiting to pick up the Carbonized Mandalorian. Target had NO vintage card figures at all. Some people were pissed.

    Target was a bust for me. All the carbonized mando's in stock were ordered for in-store pick-up so none of us waiting in line even got to look at them. They had a couple cases of first editions. People picked through them quick. I grabbed a Rey, but ended up putting her back when I noticed she had abysmal paint. Also had the full vintage line. Again, Rey had piss poor paint in that scale too, as did Poe. No one even looked at them aside from me. Decided to pass on them just to stick to my budget.

    No one touched the pops at all aside from the Boba Fett exclusives. There's a few first order Troopers and Offworld Jawa's hanging on the pegs, along with the Rey I put back and a spare second sister someone grabbed two of by mistake. If I struck out with carbonized second sister I might head back over there.

    At Gamestop now, they open in 36 minutes.

    Was able to pick up eight Pops at Target. They didn't have Poe or Lando in any of the boxes though. Did get the only Connix and Zorii ones. Ordered the other ones I wanted from Gamestop and the NYCC Mandalorian from Funko Shop.

    Got the first edition Kylo and First Order trooper as well! My mom found a Rey in Maryland, but I can’t tell if she meant first edition or regular. I’ll take her either way though! Also got my carbonized Second Sister and the NYCC Mando. I’m done now. Great day overall!

    When I got home one more thing arrived. Spark of the Resistance novel. I'll start that as soon as I finish the Dooku novel, which I'm about half through.

    Target and K-Mart were a bit of a let down in my city (Brisbane, Aust.). There was plenty of Lego available, but little in Hasbro. All I picked up was a Darth Vader figure from The Galaxy of Adventures series. It was disappointing all round really, but I hit a retro gaming store and picked up 6 older figures in original packaging (3 2017 SW, 1 POTF and 2 TFA) for $50 AU ~ bargain!

    I like the Fett but I don't really care for the camouflage.

    I ordered all I cared about of anything. Lieutenant Connix online from Hot Topic for $9. lI am very happy with that being the only thing that I really wanted. Overall I think this TFF was a letdown, maybe just because I am missing TRU it just wasn't the same, we hit all the stores today but nothing really called out to me.

    I picked up a white/red box Madalorian at Target only because they were stocking the shelf after opening on 4 October. The guy pulled it out of the brown cardboard box and handed it to me.

    I didn't go out hunting yesterday because there really wasn't anything I wanted. Checked 1 Target today while I was running errands. Lots of Pops and lightsabers still on the shelf or peg. Two of the new BS Rey and two Cal Kestis figures were all that were left. I snagged a Galaxy of Adventures Vader.

    After seeing Joker yesterday I went to Walmart and Target and they were both wiped clean of figures. No pops, VC, black series, nothing.
