FAO SHWARZ has a huge star wars section. other than that, theres tons of small comic shops that should thirst your quencher and leave your wallet empty!

It's expensive, so I don't suggest picking up easily-found-at-retail SW items there, but definitely check out Toy Tokyo while in Manhattan. Very fun place that always seems to have some stuff you've never seen anywhere else.

I'm usually the last person to find anything cool or worthy of posting, but today I found the new vehicles...AAT, hailfire droid and Darth Vader Sith Starfighter at the levittown Walmart (Rt 106 and Hempstead tpk) and they were MARKED DOWN to $5.00 each


They were located in the top stock with no price tags so I used one of the checkers in the section and couldn't believe it. I picked up the only Sith starfighter and AAT that I could find, but left a few Hailfire droids.

Here are pics of my receipt and finds...

Target Commack North had an Imperial Shuttle on clearance tonight for $42. Looked like a christmas return, complete with little bit of taped wrapping paper. Box was beat slightly. I couldn't pull the trigger since I got one when they first came out. good luck to who ever gets it.

Ive finally come to the conclusion that hasbro is trying to rape us. So, I have decided after collecting over 5000 star wars figures that I am only collecting new figures and not repaints and recarded figures. took me 11 years to figure it out but better late than never!

You don't mind the repaints of the same molds? I like em all. But some people don't.

copa, your right, they are raping us. for the next 10 years all you will see is repaints, newly sculpted characters to replace the '90's ones, and a couple brand new figures thrown in.
