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.

No, just Morgbug.  Don't mind him.  He's just Canadian.   ;D

No Vinatieri chase, eh?  That stinks.  They've finally made an OT and a K, and they don't make chase versions of either?  It's an outrage, I tell you!

It's a chase, and he's probably coming back.  If anything, it could be decent trade bait eventually.

Naahh, just been wondering about that.  I haven't heard anything solid.  It seems like the WR's are getting all the attention in this series.

Oh, you got the Vinatieri chase?  Cool.  I was kind of wondering if they were going to make a bearded or cold weather version of him.

I was actually a little surprised to see the set in Wally World.  Even though I had scored my FF set with clear Sue Richards at this store, it's usually pretty barren.

No need.  It's the figure that's pictured on the cardbacks.

The Roy Williams chase is the blue doublestar jersey, not the white one.  McFarlane pulled another fast one.  I think they're trying to screw the scalpers again, the way they did with black jersey Gannon.

I'm closing in on the Defending Champs.  Almost there!

My purchases have been pretty limited for NFL 10 so far.  I've only bought Roy Williams, Adam Vinatieri and  chase versions of Ladainian Tomlinson and Trent Green.  I have to admit that I'm a little fed up with the repaints and second versions of players.

Jake Delhomme - Rich Gannon repaint
Trent Green - Jeff Garcia repaint
Terrell Owens 2
Rany Moss 2
Ladainian Tomlinson 3 (if you count the San Diego Super Bowl set)
Ricky Williams 2...and he isn't even in the league this year!

Personally, I think that the new Randy Moss is a little bit better than the frist, Scott, but it's your toy dollars to work with.  I know that if they made a new Shockey I'd be all over it.

Dang, the S6 set is getting harder to find eh?  Not good, not good at all.  Will have to begin hunting.

Actually, I just got it over the weekend at WalMart.  I think it was a little over $40.  Truth be told, the figures aren't all that bad.  We got first appearances of Black Cat, Green Goblin and Electro in the set.  Also, Spidey seems a little bit different.

The Luke Pilot is definitely out.  I've seen it at a couple of comic shops so far.  I haven't been to a Suncoast in a while, but I'm sure it'll be there soon.

My latest Gentle Giant score?  Doing some backtracking and picked up the Jango Fett mini-bust.

Obi-Wan, the Clone Trooper and General Grievous.  At this point in the night, I'm too tired to elaborate.
