Oh yes I can not stand exclusives as there is never enough sans rattlers/conquests clogging the shelves to this day. ROC looks set to have a TON of exclusives and if Mega-low-mart stops that means they all go to K-mart...coinscidnce? LOL TRU, Internet and Target is where it's at now...screw the rest.
I was in my Alberston's down the street the other day and they had the current comic packs at 12.99, some sigma 6 guy named big lob? and the star wars comic packs for 18.99. They also had 2 indiana jones vehicles a jungle cutter and the troop carrier truck LOL I was like WTF when did they get into tthis? I never seen a small food chain like Kroger, Tom Thimb or Alberstons with these other than HEB back in teh wave 10 heydays....they did not have any single cards though or joe vehicles...

I miss east coast Wal-Marts. The ones out here suck worse (and I didn't think Wal-Mart could get worse).
At least where I live now, Wal-Mart closes at 10, and their prices are often higher than Target. Which the only 2 reasons I used to put up with the moronic hordes at Wal-Mart to begin with was because their prices were lower, and they were open later than Target.
Unless I want to feel like I'm in a third-world marketplace, I don't set foot in Wal-Mart anymore.

You know, when I worked there, I got coached 3 times in the course of a month. It's a wonder I wasn't fired.
1- I was returning from the Tire & Lube Express from a long day of work. I had dealt with retards all day, and was covered in oil and grease. When I was walking through the store like a zombie, a lady in the children's clothes section comes up to me and (quite arrogantly, using the "wave-away" gesture) asks if I can see if they have any more of them in the back. My response: "Bitch, are you retarded?"
2. A big fat hillbilly and his toothless wife and mullet-headed toddler were trying to enter through a door that, you know- just so happened to have a big sign on it that says "DO NOT ENTER. PLEASE USE OTHER DOOR". He was tugging away on it, and I think it took him a full minute to understand what was happening. He would just try to open it, and give it this "Oh Lord, why hast thou forsaken me?" look. Finally, I walked around where he could see me, and he cursed me out and said he would take his business elsewhere. I nodded, and he said I "needed my ass whooped". Sorry, but being a former Marine war vet, I had to turn and laugh... and tell him to eat his Wheaties and keep practicing on his wife. Apparently, he found the other door. And the Store Manager.
3- CHRISTMAS EVE. I'm leaving the store in my truck, in my uniform, and wearing my hat. Some crazy woman comes storming out of the front of the store like a bat out of hell all pissed. I slammed on the brakes, and she stops right in front of my truck and slaps the hood and starts calling me an idiot. My response (cigarette in mouth): "Bitch! I will eat your kids!" She also found the store manager.
The store manager liked me, but I told him too many times about the problems in the shop that never got fixed, never having a full set of the work uniforms; not to mention, this was not the job I applied for in the first place... and they told me I'd have the loss prevention position in 6 months... then backed out on it. I basically got fed up one of the days when they told me to clock out because of overtime... I threw my shirt down, went to the bar, and passed out in my truck.

exclusives are cool but i agree, they tend to be a hassle to get, i think the best exlusives are the TRU transformers ones because i alweys find those.
