HOBBY BASE DISPLAY CASES AND BASES
October 6, 2013 - September was a blur, but at some point, there was a trip to Walgreens and a surprise in the toy aisle! Not only did they have McFarlane's 4th series of The Walking Dead action figures (tv versions), including the exclusive Rick Grimes figure, but they also had some oddly cute DC Super Hero Dolls.
I picked up the Wonder Woman, Catwoman, and Supergirl. There is also a Batgirl, but I didn't see one at this location, so she'll wait for another day. The dolls were $4.99 each. In addition to their rooted hair, they have eyes that blink open and closed as you tilt them backwards or stand them up. (more after the jump)
October 6, 2013 - It's a new month, so it is also time to check Target's printable coupons and Cartwheel app for new deals!
The printable coupons offer 18 coupon in the toys category, mostly on Hasbro items, including:
Also check the HasbroRewards.com site for more printable Hasbro coupons, as well as the SmartSource insert for the October 6th Sunday newspaper. We get the Denver paper and there were several Hasbro coupons in it. In theory, Target will let you stack a manufacturer's coupon with one of their Target coupons, so you might be able to double up on a few of the deals. You can also "triple-stack" the two kinds of coupons with the Cartwheel app when those deals happen to align.
Their Cartwheel has 36 toy deals available, including these deals of interest to action figure collectors:
