Jeez, I can't believe I forgot Ben Franklin?! It was right next door to the movie theater downtown. The movie theater where I saw Star Wars for the first time! I remember getting my iron-on shirt for The Empire Strikes Back there.
Let's see. The main places I remember going to were Child World and Sears. There was also a toy chain called Toy & Sports Warehouse. Add in the old big box stores like Bradlees and Caldors. Also, there was Service Merchandise. And then later on came Kaybee and Toys R Us.
Child World was basically the TRU of it's day. Definitely my old favorite. I remember getting my vintage Yoda there quite vividly.
I had done well on the chase figures up until the last two series. Dark Phoenix has totally eluded me, as has phasing Vision. I managed to snag most of the others, except for the ML3 maskless Wolvie. But these last two series are killing me!
You can always try to score the ML6 version of maskless Wolvie, Brent. I finally got one at a show for $30. I honestly don't care that the cardback doesn't say ML3, I care that I got that sculpt finally.
