Are you losing your marbles shopping? ;)

Let's see if I can scrape a little holiday shopping news together here...  :)

K B Toys is carrying an exclusive 40 marble Diamond/Pearl Jakks collector's set for $19.99; here's a toy site scan:

Hot Topic is carrying some of the t-shirts you've seen online in-store; if you're in a mall, stick your head in:

The ladies t-shirts were buy one get one half off in-store this weekend.

After checking official Pokemon websites for TFG info, I'm still coming up empty-handed.  One of my local Wal-marts RESTOCKED the Groundbreakers "Skydive" starter set over the Black Friday weekend.  I don't think fans realize these may be lurking in the aisles, plus, there isn't anything on the official sites about the actual release date.  I live in a "test market" city, so, I am thinking maybe they are feeling the waters on this set?  Still no sign of boosters; but, going by Amazon.com, those are supposedly due 12/14, subject to change.  Someone was nice enough to do a great edit on Wikipedia.org of the update I added of the spoiler list and they noted the other Starter was going to be "Whirlwind."  However, while in the TCG aisles, you're bound to find lots of other great holiday gifts; I noticed World Championships decks were showing up plus more TCG carded gift packs including the one with a Buizel and a Gible foil (at Wal-mart, est. around $15.99 price point).

Prima has a limited edition Diamond & Pearl bundle with strategy guide and Pokedex due out mid-December:

http://www.primagames.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9780761556381

It includes an "Exclusive Lenticular Card - A card bound in with dual Pokémon images and a compatibility chart on back!"  I noticed EBGames is doing a pre-sell for this on their website, around $29.99.

Target has new carded TCG packs containing one Secret Wonders booster, one POP 2-card promo booster and your choice of either a Squirtle or Carvanha reverse foil, $4.99.  :)

More to come, I'm sure...  Pika Pi Buneary!
