yeah... I was in Virginia for the holiday, and looked in a Walmart, Kohl's, Target, Kmart, and a TRU, and still only found remnants of her wave. I'm striking out here. That Walmart isn't too far from my job... like 10 miles. If you do find her, would you sell her to me for a markup, or at your cost?
I picked up a Phasma at Kroger (grocery store) for $8.99. Check those grocery store toy sections for a gem or two. (BTW wished Phasma had a better role in TFA. Hoping a future BluRay with deleted scenes will give us more from this cool character.)

No markup, just whatever I paid. B)

I've seen the latest wave at Target this week, Resistance Trooper, TIE Pilot, Asty & Hux.

That would be AWESOME!

I'll definitely have to check out Kroger. Thanks for the tip!

Ok, so this goes out to whoever's cleaning out the Walmart, Target and Walgreens, off I 10 and Fry, on a regular basis (I know it's only like one or two dudes because the stores say that someone comes in and cleans em out)... please stop that effing sh**! Leave something for those of us that are actually going to buy just one. I promise, we won't cut in to your bottom line.

Sincerely,

Jaxx

lame here in Houston. Can't find any of the Kanan and Ahsoka wave anywhere. No Orlando trips... but maybe a Comicpalooza appearance. Anyone heading to Comicpalooza? They have David Prowse (if he doesn't cancel).

Yeah I just sold off my Vintage Collection series of figures and I am thinking about selling off my 6 inch BS figures also. I think I am just going to stick to my POTF2 collecting focus, seems I get more joy from findings things in that series then I do hunting down figures in stores (especially when they are so hard to find in stores).

I will be at comicpalooza! Will be in my stormtrooper costume raising funds with the 501st!

How are the Houston collectors doing?! Anyone heading to Celebration in Orlando?!

What's up Houston!? Just seeing if anyone is going to be chilling out front of a Toys-R-Us, Walmart or target on Force Friday this coming September 30th. I believe we get in at like 12:01 AM, on 9/30... I think that's how it was done a couple of years ago... anyway, who's heading out, and where are you hitting?

Not sure. Believing it will be a bust like last year. Anyone still seeing the WM exclusive blue Poe x wing? Are they clearances yet? If so, where? Last piece needed.

I had fun a couple of years ago with the TFA Force Friday. I didn't want to get a ton of stuff. I'm only looking for like 3 or 4 6"figs this year... I might pick up a couple 3 3/4 figs if I see something that looks great. This year, I'm definitely excited for the Death Trooper and K-2SO. I'm also hoping that these stores will get a few more figs from previous waves in stock... Like maybe an Ahsoka. I can't find her anywhere. I can find Kanan everywhere, but Ahsoka is MIA. I haven't seen any of the blue Poe x-Wing around.

Hey ya'll!

Finally back in southeast Texas (Angleton) after running around the planet for the last 30 years. Looking for recommendations on places in Houston or Pearland that have loose figures (3-3/4 across the spectrum). These could be comic stores, antique malls, flea markets, etc. Just building my map for when I am in the Houston area so I can make some runs.

Thanks!

Good luck. But ...
Bed Rock Comics sometimes has deals
Space Cadets in The Woodlands had a find for me or two ... but only in spare parts section
Traders Village -- I came up empty here big time but other people found deals

Any of you guys been to Order 66 toys out in Seabrook?

It's an all Star Wars toy store!! Good selection of both modern and vintage toys.

Just looked at it on the Google. And that's what I'm talking about. :-D

Will definitely have to give that a look when I am over that direction. I can fool the wife by saying we are visiting Nasa... OH LOOK! A STAR WARS STORE!

Wow I'll have to check that out next time I'm in Kemah (go there for sushi at Ichiban a few times a year). Not much in Pearland except Arkham Comics, but they don't have much in the way of toys. I'm walking distance from them so I pick up graphic novels there, but usually trek to Bedrock on Bay Area for toys and statues (probably headed there today). They have loose stuff in their glass cases and lots of turnover. Third Planet downtown if fun to go shop around and admire their inventory, but they're way overpriced and I rarely buy from them (see what I like then get it on Ebay for half the price lol).

I visited Order 66 for the first time this weekend. Very cool store, tons of neat vintage and modern stuff to look at, and the owner/manager was super nice and friendly. Unfortunately I don't see myself ever buying anything there because the prices were all pretty high. They wanted $75 for 40th Vader, $66 for 40th R5-D4, $699 for BMF new in box, etc. But, it was still fun to look around.

Yeah the prices are pretty crazy high (not sure how they expect to sell anything like that) but it is fun to stop by and look around.
