Found a Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren and the Resistance Trooper at Walgreens the other day. It's interesting that the rest of the wave would have sold out before Kylo and Phasma, but maybe WG isn't putting out entire cases. The toy section in my store is pretty small, but there should have been room for at least 3 or 4 more figures.

Either way, I was glad to have a second chance to get Kylo Ren, since he sold out in only a couple of days at my Walmart. At $10 per figure, however, it will probably remain my last resort stop when I'm looking for new figures.

I think it's hilarious when Americans complain about $60 video games and $10 action figures. You don't even know the meaning of overpriced :P

I think it has more to do with the increase over what the current price is. It would be like finding a figure in a store wherever you live and its 25%-30% more than other stores - that's what you get in stores like Walgreens.

Some stores are just more expensive than others. I think that's all he was saying, but, yes, other countries do indeed have it rough in terms of pricing. No doubt about it.

I have been seeing that too. I found Plasma at one of our Walgreens as well.

I spent a year in Korea, in 2000-2001, where there were no Star Wars figures available anywhere and the only online store that I was able to reliably buy figures from and recieve them within a reasonable amount of time was Brian's Toys. So for several months I was spending between $20-$25 per figure on EVERY figure (except 300th Boba Fett, which I had to pay $35 for). This was back when the average price of figures in American stores was $5-$6. So, I think I am well aware of what the term "overpriced" means.

I think that's exactly what is happening as I have noticed the same thing on more than one occasion. They are probably receiving them in cases that are already randomly split like that. The only other place I've been able to spot a Phasma and Kylo since MM has been at Walgreens.

I spotted a Kylo Ren at WG as well...and also balked at the price and passed. The extra couple of bucks and the out-of-the-way location does seem to make Walgreens a little more reliable for those harder-to-find figures, though..

No, I think they had a Buy One, Get One 50% off Deal this past week. It's probably over now.

I know I mucked up the name. I meant Phasma, sorry. Though I thought that it was plasma. Which has been used in Sci-Fi for a while, Plasma cannon for example.

Does anyone know if the Funko POP! FO Stormtrooper(Riot Gear #75) is out yet? Another Walgreen's exclusive.

Hate to resurrect a thread that hasn't been touched, but...

Went to Walgreens on my way home to check for the Spirit of Yoda Funko Pop! Vinyl, and found nothing in the usual section I check. Walking out of the store, I spotted a Star Wars endcap display housing the Spirit of Yoda I was looking for, a Guavian Enforcer, and a PZ-4CO. Check your local Walgreens, guys, I was pleasantly surprised. They had vehicles and Micro Machines/Titanium stuff, too.

Just wanted those of you looking for wave 2 to know that Walgreens is getting them.

Yes, I had found it the out other night. I posted a pic in the Funko Bobble Heads thread up above, if you want to see it. I like this variant.

Can you post a link to that thread? I can't find it on the list of threads. Thank you.
