Sub Topic: Would you Carry out this Plan?
I got 2 RHINOS on account of the Target sale a couple of weeks back. I stopped at two for now because I saw that they were produced in enough quantities that they will go on sale sometime again. I like the idea of having a squad of RHINOs because so far it is the only Joe "armor" vehicle that has been released in a couple of years, and it carries at lot of figures.
However, with the Target.com $30 off sale on the PIT, I was wondering if I should return one of the RHINOS w/o a reciept so I would get a $50 gift card, and, then, use the gift card to buy the PIT with only $20 out of pocket [since I was already out-of-pocket for the cost of the 2nd RHINO].
I am not generally a fan of the PIT design as I can't seem to wrap my brain around what it's supposed to be, even after seeing the movie [no imagination I guess]. Also, my assumption is that since the PIT is a movie tie-in toy, there will be enough of it that it will go on sale for Thanksgiving, if not sooner.
Obviously, I am only guessing that the RHINO and the PIT would go on sale sometime in the future. Since nothing is certain, if you had the choice, would you army build RHINOS or would you go ahead and use the 2nd RHINO to get the PIT so you could have at least one of each for your collection.

That is a tough call. I personalize despise the aesthetic of the PIT and love the RHINO, but both are huge. It really is a matter of what you want and how you will use them. The PIT makes a nice display, but I would hate to just "have it" because it really is not attractive as a vehicle (buy an old MCC instead). Just decide what you want them for, and purchase accordingly.
BTW, not sure if Target will accept the RHINO without a receipt. They have gotten quite strict lately. Just a heads up.

The Rhino is awesome. I would love to have a handful of them but the cost kinda makes it hard.

If you try and return the rhino without a receipt, I'm pretty sure they will only give you the lowest price in the system over the last few weeks.
