Think Outside the Toy Box is a segment that does just that. It asks us to think outside the toy box to get our collectibles lower than retail or to make a quick flip for cash.
We all know everything EPVII will be highly sought after. While I was on my weekly Target run I got to check out the toy aisle for the first time since the Force Friday dust settled. There is definitely plenty of stuff still to be had. Mostly the 12-in Titan Series and Mashers and a few other remote oddities are left. There is also a few Hot-wheels and MicroMachines left as well. Action figures of 3 3/4 inch scale were scarce and 6 inch Black Series was extinct. Hot-wheels has a Target exclusive that gives you all of the EPVII and Rebels hero and villain starships from wave 1 as well as a gold Millennium Falcon and Slave 1 that is only available in this set.
I saw this guy on the shelf and left it. I am wondering if that was a mistake. I see people already asking $100-$125 for it. Now if they get it is another story.
I loved MicoMachines as a kid so I am glad to see them making a come back. I am not the only one as the Star Wars MicroMachine 3-packs are going for triple retail.
