What about target, any reports of those breaking street yet? I ask because its MUCH easier to find them there, Walmart is a cesspool here and fudge is never where its supposed to be (and usually, half the minifig packs are open and stolen by the time I find them)

Target typically is MUCH stricter about street date. We found movie figs there and got the big red X at checkout (twice) before the on sale date.

New issue of Hispabrick is available for download for free. Not well-designed (hey, its free at least), but has some good photos and a great how to for miniland figure builds, etc, figured a few of you would be curious to browse it:

It's my favorite UCS set of the ones I have (the Millenium falcon will be mine someday!)

Bummer, no luck at the other Walmart or target. So now I am left with Kmart (barf) and Hastings (double barf). Guess I'll check those eventually, and just keep an eye out at the other places every couple of days...

Guess I will head out tomorrow and see what I can find. Not expecting anything but worth a shot. Anyone now the official street date and not just an ambiguous time frame?

Went to Wally World tonight and got 5 bags ($3.97/ea). First time groping bags, so it took a while. Results:

- Chief Wiggum
- Krusty
- Maggie
- Scratchy
- Marge (can't figure out the skirt here)

Nothing at my Target, FYI. Not even a spot for minifigures on the shelf.

had a look at the simpsons house but it is just too expensive over here - £179 in the UK compared with £120 (equivalent) in the US (and other countries get it even worse) - will just go for the mini-figs (as the house would just end up getting trashed in pretty short order in any event).
