I did pretty good, but it took a lot of effort. I think I got everything that was available including a complete set of first edition 6”, complete set of black box 6”, all of the carbonized figures, 6” Commander Fox, all of the TVC figures, all of the 5” GOA figures, etc.

I think I went to most Walmart’s a few times before they finally put out their figures. It seems like the TVC figures had a lot of crushed bubbles and it was had to get a set in decent condition. There were a lot of Star Wars collectors out yesterday. Talking with the store employees there were few if any Frozen buyers out. I think I was on of the few people to buy the 5” GOA figures. They look tiny in their small boxes
Dangggggg that's a lot of cash and storage space haha.

Carbonized Sith Trooper arrived today. I'm kind of surprised it arrived in good condition considering it was shipped in an envelope!

Also picked up Pop Exclusives.

Best Buy west Madison has 8 IG-11. I've hear they are street dated for November but I didn't buy one. They also had new the At-St walkers. Happy hunting all!

Nice! Saw the purge troopers at a gamestop in Waukesha but they wouldn't sell any individually.

I saw the zero articulation figures as well. They remind of some roseart rubber stamps I bought in high school back in the 90s.

Picked up Clone Commander Fox at Barns & Noble Madison West. They had 8 left. They are on one of the tables near the coffee seating area. I don't know what they call it lol. Deli maybe?

This is probably a reallllllly long shot, but does anyone know if there are any shops or shows in Wisconsin that regularly carry vintage figures and other vintage items? I am looking to round out some holes in my vintage collection and trying to avoid the ebay route. I would rather purchase from a local shop or show, if possible. Most of the stuff I am looking for is the harder to fins and more expensive items.
Thanks for any help!

Henry Smith's Shop (Toy Dimension) is a good choice. Or stop by Burham Bowl, Milwaukee when they have their next Sunday show. I've got a bunch of loose ones that I'm planning on selling this spring. If you have any specific figures in mind, let me know, I'll pull them out for you and give you a great price.

A New Hope Collectible Toys and Comics is on State Street in Madison. They are a smaller store but I think they have a great collection of items. Plenty of loose characters to look through along with rare sets.

They are my favorite stop every year for Maxwell Street days. I bought a Rebel Troop Transport upgrade and a Kenner Speeder Bike there last year. I've bought loose Babylon 5 and Star Trek figures there as well in the past.

Target run for toilet paper led to a Hasbro - Vintage Collection Mandalorian find!
Did you know that 18 rolls cost the same as 1 vintage collection figure?

I know this isn’t SW but I thought I’d share. The packaging is pretty amazing and much bigger than I was expecting.

Argh, stupid thing uploaded in reverse order.
