Stay on target...

Big news. Target has finally opened here in Davis! Finally, there is a decent place to buy toys in town. Until now, there has been one toy store in town. Although they carry Lego and Playmobil, it is one of those stores that is mostly based on selling more "educational" toys, so they don't really carry anything to interest your average nerdy man-child like myself. Then there is the comic shop, which tends more towards the older and/or overpriced figures. Rite-Aid also carries toys, but they are way overpriced, and with a terrible selection. Oddly enough, this Target sells Star Wars figures for 25 cents more than other Targets usually do.

It's a nice store, although laid out in a different way than most Target stores. It's also one of the largest Target stores I've been in, with an expanded grocery section. I ended up spending about forty dollars when I went in, although I only bought one toy that I'll be posting about here. I'm glad to have a proper place to buy toys without having to leave town, and hopefully it'll cut down on the necessity of ordering toys online.

Also, I have added a section to the sidebar with a list of toys I'm currently looking for. I could add more, but for now these are just the toys that are currently available or that should be very soon. I'll be deleting toys from it as I get them, so if you have nothing better to do and are paying close attention, you'll be able to figure out what I'm going to post about before I do so.


  1. If a Target were any closer to me I'd do some serious damage to my budget.

    You should make your list linkable to images, I don't follow Star Wars closely enough to know exactly what figures you are looking for but if I had a visual I could keep my eyes peeled when I'm out hunting.

  2. Good idea! I think I'll do that.

  3. That's better! I did see Rum Sleg once a while back and almost bought him because he looked so cool. Unfortunately I did not, but now I'll know to keep my eyes opened. :)
