WalgreensBLOW!!!!111!!! or something or other... 

Seriously though, 9/4 is going to be weird if these places manage not to pee out everything first.  That'll be the big if.  But Walgreens, if they'd never said anything, who'd think to even go there on 9/4?   ::)

Well, we're all getting old enough now that the prescription crowd and SW collectors might be blending into one.

Yeah, all of those things are customs and not protos.  The sand Speeder has a cool custom canon on the back as well.  I picked up that and a few other custom ships along with a huge Tatooine diorama years ago from a customizer that had passed away.  Don't know anything about him, but his wife had enlisted some of his SW friends to sell off his stuff.  She threw in a handful of custom figures and droids since I bought so much.  He had some amazing stuff.

Not sure if it is specific to my store or a broader price change, but the Walmart near me has all 6" Black Series for $15 now...

Really?  Does he have a hole blown through him or a bandage?  Oh Carl.

Thanks guys!  I eventually plan to seed the displays with extra vintage figures to make them look more like the scenes from the packages.  So much to do, so little time to do it...

Yeah, just wait 13 years for the price to come down.   ;)


...and technically we are getting the Stormtrooper at other outlets, just at a later date with different packaging.  I'm much more bothered about the Dr Strange Box Set, since the Marvel stuff doesn't seem to get repacked.  It's one thing to miss out on packaging, but quite another to miss out the character entirely.

I tried and failed again this year. Was hoping to pick up this and the First Order trooper, but both were gone too quickly. Honestly this set was my top priority since we should at least get another crack at that trooper. I'll have to keep checking over the next week or so, fingers crossed

+1  I snagged the Ant Man set and Transformers Kreo easily, but these two went quick.  Can we order two?  If I luck into finding it online and can get more than one I'll order a spare for you Brian.  Like you said, stinks that this is the only place to get these figures.

I could care less about the packaging.  I would have opened mine if I was able to get one.  I just really like the design and for me its worth the extra $5 to get it now versus waiting a few more months.  I'm not that bothered that I didn't get it honestly because this one will be available (loose) elsewhere unlike the past few exclusives.  That said, I do wish there was a better system for the people that really want the packaging.  I used to be a die hard completest with packages, so I know how it feels to have that hole in your collection.  Like Jeff said, hopefully there are some good prices to be had via Ebay over the next month for anyone who really wants this version.

Well at least they are watching out for the consumer.  Sure, you can't typically get the exclusives you want on line, but for those that do, at least you are secure in the knowledge that you have paid the absolute highest price possible.

Did anyone get one?  I got the Ant-Man Box set and Transformers Kreo, but missed this and the Book of Vishanti set.  Bummer.  Also, I thought it was free shipping over $50?  I spent $10 on tax and another $10 on shipping.  I found a code for Comic2015, but it did not discount the price at all.   >:(

F5 standing by.

Ha!  Love it. 

Nothing as of 8:55 Central...

Awesome, but I don't think they will look right next to my Funko figures...

Looks like a buy 1 get 1 50% off character apparel, toys, backpacks, school supplies....

I'm just wondering if he had a coupon or if there is a Target sale going this week.

SCORE!  Target had the Han and Taun Taun and it rang up for $24.99.  Grabbed a second for $12.50, two of them out the door for the $40 that it would cost at WalMart for one!

Why was the second one only $12.50?  That's a great deal!
