It’s Thanksgiving! – that special day of the year that we stuff ourselves to the gills with turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce; and then head out into the cold to await the Black Friday sales. But no, not me – I’m going to sit back and enjoy the warmth indoors, and maybe pick up a toy or two just with a few clicks of the mouse.
From their Facebook page, JAKKS shares details of a great sale on UFC figures at Target through the end of October. These are for the Deluxe figures that feature a nice articulation setup – especially in the hips. Might be a good opportunity to pick up custom fodder, even if you don’t collect UFC figures.
Target is running The Ultimate Deal on The Ultimate Action Figures! For the rest of October, get UFC DLX action figures at the great price of $6.99 at all Target stores! Spread the word…
Just got an email – Toys R Us is having their last free shipping promotion of the year, today, 12/17 only.
I took a quick look, and there’s a big mix of stuff that you might want to pick up if you skipped it earlier. For example, they have the Sue and Johnny Storm Marvel Legends 2-pack, the Giants of Justice Flash (also on sale), and a bunch of Joes and Marvel Universe figures in the action figure section their free shipping store. Some of the stuff is already out of stock, like the UFC figures, so you might want to check this out early.
The free shipping store goes away at the end of today. Happy Shopping!
JAKKS has changed its lineup for UFC Wave 2, including figures from Waves 0 and 1 and keeping only Antonio Nogueira, Mike Thomas Brown, and Nate Marquardt from the lineup originally published. There are no indications right now whether the re-released figures from Wave 0 and 1 will have new paint decos.
Dropped and presumably rescheduled for later waves are Bas Rutten, George St. Pierre, Lyoto Machida, Rampage Jackson, and Thiago Alves.
UFC Action Figures- JAKKS Pacific JAKKS UFC Figures Wave #2 UPDATE: the line-up has changed. The new line-up will now feature:
- Brock Lesnar
- Chuck Lidell
- Minotauro Nogueira
- Royce Gracie (Legends)
- Rashad Evans
- Forrest Griffin
- Nate Marquardt
- Mike Thomas Brown (WEC)
JAKKS Pacific has updated its UFC Facebook page with pics of the second wave of action figures. It looks like they’ve adjusted the head sizes a bit, at least on some of the fighters – the oversized noggins are the biggest drawback of the line for me.
Next up, the scrawny legs. 😀
