Toy and craft run! 1/12/13

It was a toy euphoria day!  Austin and I decided that we wanted to bargain hunt for toys at Marshalls, Ross and T.J. Maxx....Also Walmart and Target!   We should have gotten started earlier, but I was exhausted and slept in until noon.  Anyway, we discovered that Wally world and Target are tapped out.  I think the January toy clearance is over.  However, I did find some Barbie items (Stardoll and Fashionistas) and I picked up a couple of Lego Friends sets.   The Fashionista items were Ken Doll clothes.  (which are never cheap) Walmart had some sets at 7.00 dollars.


I am looking forward to customizing these Stardolls.  I really like the outfits with this series!

Walmart seems to have all the Fall of Cybertron Transformers Generations figures.  We buy them when we see them because they seem to be scarce.  People are buying these figures!  It will be interesting to see what vendors and scalpers will charge people for these figures at Bot Con!

We found Ultra Magnus, Air Raid, Starscream, Kickback, Sideswipe and Onslaught! These are some attractive figures.  We have been getting lucky at Walmart for these guys lately.  We found Onslaught at a Target I think.

As for all those awesome discount places such as Ross, Marshall's and T.J. Maxx we were so excited to find Prime figures there!  They are showing up there and many are still at Targets for double what we paid for these guys!  We really don't collect Prime figures, but these were at such a low rate, we could not resist!

We bought Wheeljack when they first starting showing up at retailers, but now we have a Bumblebee, Knock Out, Rumble, Thundertron, Ultra Magnus and Vehicon.  We saw 2 Vehicons and a Few Bumblebees and 2 Decepticon Rumbles.  This was pretty exciting for us!  These were all at the Target in Montclair, CA tonight!

Below, Austin is peeling off price tags......

In between all of the driving from store to store, from LA to Rancho Cucamonga, we took a coffee break at Starbucks and grabbed In-N-Out for grub!  Ross had a Bumblebee Kre-O set and we finally found a sealed Kre-O set of Sentinel Prime at a Walmart!  Half-price! YAY!!!

I dragged Austin into Michael's, Tuesday Morning in La Verne, CA and Hobby lobby for some of my crafting supplies.  

I was running low on jewelry pins and fish hooks.  I found some black metal plated ones at Hobby Lobby and a couple of pendants I can use for necklaces.   So excited!!!!
