Yes definitely going...and counting down the days. I'm planning on hitting TRU first, and probably will work my way to the rest of the stores. And for sure I'll be in touch with fellow local collectors so we can help each other out while we are out there!
Well, now that I've seen everything leaked so far it's looking like it won't turn out to be so pricey after all. So far just looking like the 6" stuff for me, with 2 or 3 TFA figures my son asked me for.
There has to be more stuff yet to be revealed though, so I'm keeping a little hope.
I am going to buy a few vehicles and maybe 6-7 figs, mostly troops. Real question is; where to go? TRU is all the way in Bradenton (pretty good trek), but the nearby Super Target AND Super Walmart are both doing something....decisions, decisions....
Well, hit the Super Target last night as well as 2 Walmarts. The Target only had one case of figures for like 80 people! I did find everything I wanted between all of the stores though, plus hitting a Target this morning as well as Kmart. Only figure that I wanted but couldn't find was Phasma!
Target in Clearwater was pretty packed, but very understocked and was sold out of most figures, vehicles, etc. within minutes. I went to a Walmart after and was able to find all of the black and regular series figures. Just picked up a Kylo, Phasma, Stormtrooper, and some micro machines.
TRU was a joke.
Only thing of interest were the freebies.
The line was about 30 people, max
10-15 per wave allowed in to eliminate overcrowding. which seemed ok.
by the time wave 2 of peole came in, all 6 inchers were gone.
Some 3-3/4 left, not much
Tons of other stuff, lego, MM, black series titanium, but nothing note worthy.
Bought a hot wheeels tie fighter and left to Walmart.
Walmart was near dead, I was 1 of 3 people who were at Walmart to grab 6 inchers from the TRU group.
SOme more came in afterwards.
They had 3-4 cases at least open of the 6 inch and 3-3/4
Grabbed Rey, still indecisive about kylo.
As of today almost all lego was still on the shelf near untouched.
I grabbed a few of those hex disks today from Topps. Pretty nice.
I've been checking places pretty consistently since MM...I don't think wave 2 has made it's way here yet. Unless I really just happened to miss them at all places. But not even one remnant...hard to believe.
It actually feels a little like the old days when I find myself going from place to place...I think I def got the SW fever again. Now let's find some new things before it wears off! lol
