If I am dilligent, I can pretty much get everything at retail up here. I scored the entire Geonosis wave about two weeks ago and actually picked up a second for my collecting partner. It is surprising where I find stuff. I got a #13 standing Vader at Sav-On Drugs and saw a Geonosis wave Yoda at Walgreen's. I think I need to broaden my search horizons just a little.

So there are enough of us in the IE to get our own little thread. Hooray!! No one ever seems to care when I post local finds (mostly in Beaumont, Hemet, Redlands, Moreno Valley, San Bernardino, and Fontana) in the LA thread. I'll definitely keep an eye on this to know where to swoop in and get my Hot Wheels to scalp on eBay. :crazed:

Which TRU was you at? The IE's a massive piece of real estate.

I'm in Victorville. There are two Targets, Two Wal-Marts, two K-Marts, one TRU, and a buncha Sav-Ons, RiteAids, and Walgreens around Victorville, Apple Valley, and Hesperia (Yep, the one Sublime sang about). There are aslo a Super Target and a Wal-Mart Super Center in the works to be completed in the next three years or so (the Wal-Mart Super Center will shut down one Wal-Mart, but the Super Target is supposed to be added to the other two Targets as they are all in different cities, but still within about ten miles of each other, too bad I don't shop there any more).

Quick question...
Where is Inland Empire?
I'm coming to California for a week (this coming week) with my job, and I'll have a lot of time to go to stores (Training is from 9:30 to 4). I'll be in the Ontario / Rancho Cucamonga area. Is that close?

Yep! That'd be about right. Ontario/Rancho Cucamonga is in the west half of the IE. Depending on who you ask, it could extend as far East as to about Palm Springs, North to the about Cajon Pass (I am actually North of that in the High Desert, but this area is too small for a thread of it's own, so I lump it in with the IE), South to about the South Riverside County line, and west to about the East LA county line. Now, there are a buncha opinions on that, but few people will stretch the boundaries farther than that.

Porkins? Now why would I need to find a Porkins? ;)

This won't help you out, DC, but I stopped at four Targets today (Hemet, Redlands, San Bernardino, and Fontana). All except Redlands had a crapload of Geonosis figures. No Scorchies or Clones, unfortunately. The Redlands store had about twice as many False-Unleashed Crapplepacks as they did a week ago, and also had the Maul and Boba Transformers. They both look like dookiefarts. Hemet had the Titanium figures as well. Removable helmet Boba or not, these don't look worth $15 by a long shot.
