Thanks to an inside tip, Williams-Sonoma online has the sandwich cutters in the lunch box on sale for $9.99 with free shipping. A few other items are also marked down. Hurry!

Joe, LMK if you run across CW Eeth & Barriss. I'm still missing those two. I heard you met my buddy Nick @ TRU Millenia. He's the guy that got to have lunch with GL during CV.

Niiiice! Nick didn't mention that as he stalked me across town from Millennia TRU to Florida Mall TRU!!!
Just kidding. Actually, he was pretty cool and knew a few of my residents from Seaworld. Will keep an eye out for the CW figs. I'll be out in your neck of the woods for about the next week or so staying with my parents in Clermont until my new place is ready. I'll try to pop by and say hi.

Recommendations

Hello all...

I'm an Indianapolis scummer who's going to be in the St. Augustine/Jacksonville area over the next few days. Any recommendations on collectible/toy/comic stores or flea markets I should check out while in the area?

Thanks!

Bright, I'm not from that area so I can't help you out. Sorry man. Enjoy your trip though and check out the fort in St. Augustine.

Doughboy, I'm not sure where Valrico is, but if you're ever in the Longwood area check out Acme. It's a comic shop. They have sideshow, gentle giant, kotobukya and just about anything else you could imagine. Nice guys too! Sometimes their prices are bit high though. I've found some pretty sweet deals right here on the 'scum classifieds.

Don't know if anyone cares, but I found wave 2 of the Thor movie figures at Walmart today. I picked up Fandrel, Hogan, and the big dude with the beard. If these are something you guys collect or, like me, use for custom fodder, be on the lookout!

GG, Drazen, I'll keep my eyes peeled for you guys with wave 7.

I found a lone Death Star Trooper yesterday, and the remains of that new legends wave twice more yesterday. All of the Spacetroopers were already taken

No sign of wave 7....

Lmao, yeah that was me lol...I recently added another Javier to my contacts and forgot to write something next to it to differentiate you guys, you guys have similar numbers to boot. I'll fix it so I don't keep doing that.


Where did you see those btw?

Picked one up this afternoon, and like you said, two to a case. They only got one case in at the Kmart by me

I opened mine, if any one is interested in just the box, LMK!

Stopped at a K-mart today but no signs of it anywhere, no shelf tags for it either...guess I'll keep my eyes peeled, really want it.



Did find my wave 7 openers at Target the other day at least.

for the b wing use the upc code and have them look it up. most stores havent actually put them on the floor and they are sitting in the back room. i know all the orlando stores i talked to yesterday had them in the backroom from recieving the day before. the trick is finding one willing to pull the case

You know I almost thought for a second that my EE case was gonna be my only chance at getting them, the one Target I stopped by looked like it had put out 2-3 cases of it. Didn't grab an opener of the Bespin Han but now I'm kinda regretting it.

I hooked up my fourth fellow scummer with a full set of wave 7 cobbled together from a few different area Targets. I also scavenged 2 extra Boms and an extra RFT. This wave aint no thing. (to find I mean)

Hey Chuck. I got a little confused between the texts from you and the texts from Nick. Are you all caught up on the Riot Clones or do you still need the one I'm holding for you.

Sieze bro', I was hanging onto an extra Bom for you but was holding off 'til I managed to grab Logray for ya too. Glad you snaked your openers already though. 'Cause that would have been a long drive for you to pick up a couple figgies!!

Hey Joe. I am good on Riot Clones.

I'm just waiting on the TRU Y-Wing & Stealth Ops Clone to hit.

Man I haven't posted in awhile, there hasn't been much in ages in backwoods Cape or Ft Myers really. I think the last wave I've ever seen was several back for Vintage (Endor?) and since then nothing has surfaced. On top of that there's been zero sales on figs, and the $8-9 range is just too high to justify for me. Ugh, hopefully hasbro will shape things up a bit. Crappy prices plus even crappier distribution makes me no happy.

Ironically they had the newest wave (Minus Bariss) in the Toy store in downtown Disney...of course, all the figs there are $12 or so, so it isn't even worth it.
