NECA blowout at Target! Get in quick!

they're in the cylinder cases. $20 each.

Also a few player select figures, the guy from assassin's creed and kratos. Didn't check how much they were.

I have an update!

Target Highpoint had:

Gears of War - Series 1 > $29.95
TMNT Series 1 Tubes > $19.95 (according to MAN - I didn't verify myself)
Player Select - Altair (Assassin's Creed) > $? (didn't check it)
God of War - Kratos w/ blades, w/ Golden Fleece/Medusa head & armoured version > $[not in system]

I went to bag me the Kratos with blades, and was told those figures were not in their system (no-one - not even the toy section guy - believed it was an item from their store until I took one of them over and pointed out the ENTIRE SHELF of Kratos). I misread MAN's post (I rushed out in too much of a hurry to pay attention Embarassed) and said I was told it should be $20. They then gave it to me for that price, since they couldn't figure it out.

So hit your local Target ASAP, and you may be able to haggle the price of the Kratos figures (you can even thruthfully say that Target Highpoint has been selling them for $19.95 if you want to use that as leverage Wink)!

NECA Product isn't sold at all Targets.....only those designated as having a "Collectors" section......
As the NECA Distributor is located in VIC (the owner of said Distributor used to be a Target Employee many, many moons ago) Target stores in VIC are most likey to have a wider selection of NECA product than other states.
I've yet to ever see a NECA toy on a Target Toy Shelf here in WA.

Further more the prices quoted are really the suggested RRp of these toys here in Australia.....Come Toy Sale in a couple of weeks time one would hope that they're cheaper than what they're being sold for ATM.

Actually, Target Highpoint doesn't have a collector's section.

These NECA figures were in the regular "boys toys" aisle, inbetween Speed Racer and Star Wars, and above Playmates TMNT.

Perhaps "Collectors Section" was the wrong termanology, certain Target Stores are designated as having "Collector Product".
For example, at the recent K-Mart Toy Sale, NOT all K-marts recevied the 5000pc Lego Millennium Falcon. Only those stores that have the potential to 'sell' this collectible/high end item received stock.
Target operate under the same principal. Something you may see in one store isn't necessarily available at another. Recent case in point was the Paul Stanley Signature Edition Electric Guitar. This wasn't available at every Target Store here in WA.....only those which were deemed 'capable' of selling an expensive item like this received stock (even though it was advertised in a catalogue).
What I'm trying to say is, don't rush to your local Target expecting to find NECA toys......you may find that you'll have to try a few stores to find what you're looking for.

Ah, gotcha.

Certainly would explain why my Kmart has virtually NO toy section, and gets few of any new toys.

3 collectors for 3000 bogans.

its like the spartans vs the persians for us out here!
To be fair i have seen the movie harry potter figs and some other NECA lines so maybe there is a bogan/collector hybrid market out here.


EDIT: Simmo i quite like that as a title can i be a bogan/collector?

I don't understand the excitement over this. These are normal prices for these figures, aren't they?

That's what I thought when I spotted the Gears of War figures ($27). Nice figures but a little too spicy for the wallet.

Saw Gears of War at target Chermside - didn't look for price as not too interested, but I did see something I found kinda funny - POTC animated figures from Zizzle. Has anyone else seen them?

TMNT: The tubes have the least accessories of the 3 ways to get them. Spending the little bit extra to get the packs with the extras is alot more satisfying....but I'll probably get some of these to make a Slash and give a metal head a go too...maybe a black outfit Raph.

Swashbucklers POTC: Saw random ones at my local, they are really great figures, I got the whole set when they were new in the USA...alas now they are 75% off there, with most still on the shelves. Hoping they are ultra cheap because I did not realize the coffin boat Jack and Boat and Davy.

There were a stack of tube Turtles at Target Melb (City) yesterday scanning @ $20.

Not sure whether this comes down with the Sale starting today.
