Well, I decided to hit a nearby Meijer store at 5am, before work, and saw a large isand display, half empty, and an equally impressive amount of shelf real estate, again, empty. The island display had the BB’s, some shirts, cups, all the FA basic figures, some 24’ or 36’ figures, playsets of some kind, some vehicles, figure 2-packs, but no 6” figures, which I was looking for. I should have come back to this store later in the day as I'm sure they had a LOT more product to stock.
Around 3pm, I hit my local Wally and wasn’t shocked to see a ridiculously shameful shelf space about 3 feet wide allotted for various FA toys but containing only a few paltry basic, roleplay sabers, and a vehicle or two. What a joke.
Booked it over to a Super Wally on the west side of Lansing and found their massive display, about 70% empty… but some 6” remained, including 1 Rey (Yay!), 3 Ren’s, lots of Chewies and Fin’s and, you guessed it, no stormies (shocking… I know).
Skipped 2 Targets (which I later regretted as I returned home to learn that the Walgreens Exclusive Rick Grimes has been spotted at a Target. Grrr).
Hit 4 Walgreen hoping to find Exclusive Rick or Daryl… all post truck mind you… nothing.
At least I found a Kylo Ren and a Rey so I consider today a collector success... even if it yielded a very, and I mean VERY, typical Mid-Michigan haul for me.
