Sam's Club Collector Pack [1995, POTF2]

I thought I would go a with a little change of pace here and post this Collector Pack. Much as J.C. Penney or Sears had exclusives (mostly re-purposed sets) with the vintage line, some places wanted to get in on exclusives with the new line.

The Sam's Club Collector Packs (there were other figure packs besides the one pictured) represents one of the lamer attempts at exclusivity. Basically this is 3 figures (all previously available) put in one cardboard backing. Admittedly, this might be cheaper being from a bulk store like Sam's, but if you just wait for these same figures to get marked down elsewhere, you'd get them cheaper.

In later waves Target made much better exclusives by actually having vehicle you could only get there, and even Wal-Mart (the parent company of Sam's) got in a bit with exclusive Max Rebo Band figure packs later.
