Looks like I'll be in France for a couple of weeks later in the year. Anyone live near Orleans? Any hints/tips on things to do/see or places to go? Where can I score some good Star Wars swag?

Actually, I'll be there for 2 weeks, and I'll probably spend the weekend in between in Paris. Any tips?

Also, I speak little to no French... will the be a big hinderance for me? Silly me, studied Spanish in college instead.

I was in France about a month ago,i only saw one toy store.. it was selling Anakin OPD for 16 euros


i ws quite amused though,the only other star wars item i found was a very tattered Force FX Emperor in the bargain bucket for 3 euros

I'm also willing to pay for them

or trade them for jar jar maybe? depending how much they will cost you of course (not that you pay more for jarjar then you have to, I mean)

Well, they usually cost around $4.77 at Wal-Mart, before tax (after tax they're around $5). I wouldn't even THINK of charging anything extra for them... I'll sell them right at cost.

I don't have an exact schedule for my trip yet, but I'll let you know. It'll be sometime within the next couple of months.

I'll wait until I find the figs before I start working on trading them

Are you looking for battle droids or supers? There are still quite a few of each here, as well as the red clone troopers.

Unleashed Maul won't be a problem, but I've only seen 1 Unleashed Vader (and that one has been opened and is sitting on my shelf). I'll keep my eye out for it, though.

DarthMushy,
any chance on getting me a unleashed dooku?
I would buy or trade against that swimming jar-jar (and add some money to the jar-jar) again...

oh and how about those preview clonetroopers? found any yet? would be really great but of course wouldn't be that bad if not

hey, it's me again
I just wanted to ask if you got any further details on your trip, DarthMushy
how are the maul, ani and unleashed dooku coming around? found 'em yet?
oh and if it's no trouble and you have any space left in yuor suitcase (probably not) could you look for a ephant mon for me? I guess you don't have one yourself ATM since he's not yet released nation-wide but if you find one for me that would be too cool, I'd even gice up the ani (if you haven't found him yet of course) for him

Hey guys... sorry it's been so long since I last posted. The details of my trip aren't final yet, so I don't know how long I will be in Paris. I'm flying in and out of Paris, but then will be travelling to Orleans. I'm hoping to spend a couple of days there, though. I'll post more when I know more...

Hello all,

I am currently in Orleans, France, but I was unable to bring any toys with me. My company required me to bring so much stuff, coupled with all of my clothes and things, that I just didn't have an ounce of room. If I buy anything, I won't be able to get home with everything I'm afraid

Hi guys !

OK here are a few addresses for the tourists in Paris


For new stuff : Definitely Pulps (Boulevard Saint Germain, 5th Arrd) where you will find the best prices for POTJ or Saga stuff (but it will be more expensive than in the US nevertheless). On the other side of the street you have Album. Only new stuff, a lot of action figures but more expensive than at Pulps.
Try also Arkham, rue Soufflot near Le Pantheon. Nice place too.

For vintage SW stuff : Lulu Berlu and Mad Toy. Both shops are located in the same street : Rue Oberkampf XIst Arrd
www.luluberlu.com
Prices are quite expensive but quality is there.

Hope this helps !

Stef
