Scan at mine but that's usually a store by store thing due to their inventory style...

Our Walmart Clone Wars figures just dropped to $5, so I am planning to pick up everything I can now. I also found a very random MISB Obi-Wan Starfighter for $10 so that came home with me immediately. Good times.

Picked up a $5 Aqua Droid today at lunch courtesy of Walmart, looking forward to grabbing some more tonight at the one closer to home.

Snagged 2 more Phase II clones last night at Walmart for $10. One of these guys is getting repainted as a Shock Trooper.

Rummage sale Obi-Wan's starfighter for under a $1, but it's missing everything, even the rubber nose cone.

Homing Spider Droid, missing the weapons and leg tops for $1 more or less.

My SW junkyard grows...

Today I reminded, there's two types of garage/yard sale people I hate.

1. the bins of toy junk, you have to dig through to find anything, and when you have a pile (which contains figures missing limbs and stuff the seller has no idea what is) and ask how much they say something unreasonable, you counter offer (generously considering its incomplete and broken toys) and they won't barter.  BUT THE CRAP WASN'T EVEN WORTH THEIR TIME TO SORT OUT in any reasonable manner. Keep it.

2. Boxes of junk/parts, ask how much..."let me get my son"....*waits*   and we get typical teenager "large ones 50 cents and whatever..."

No. No "whatevers"...this stuff is debris to you. You should be encouraging me to take it away. But teens don't give damn why should I. Keep it.

I work a lot on weekends anymore picking up extra time but these stories make me wish I could hit these sales. :(

I I never find anything at good prices but I'd buy junk like tht in a heartbeat.

While scouring Walgreens for Walking Dead figures yesterday, I happened across an IG-86 on the pegs in its original clone helmet card. Man, those was a long time ago! It was on sale for $7 I believe but I'm pretty sure I could find one on eBay cheaper than that.

I liberated a lone Mace Windu from my local Walmart last night for $3.50. Apparently clerance price varies by store because the next two I checked had TCW stragglers for $5 and $7 respectively.

I picked up the AT-RT/Tactical Droid Deluxe set today at Marshall's for an eye-popping $7. Hell yeah! Oddly enough, they had another one two shelves above it for the regular price of $12.99.

ps - sad to see this forum relegated to oblivion, but understandable...

Dang, that's awesome! The local 5 Below near us is closed for renovations, but I may have to check out the store across town.

My 5 Below in the waterworks/Fox Chapel plaza (pittsburgh) has both the Commander Fox wave and the Malgus wave.  Picked up all but Malgus (gone).

Star Wars and toy Collector since 1978(age 7).  currently over 6,500 SW items in my personal collection. Collect modern/vintage and everything in-between ;^)

Our 5 Below re-opens this Friday, when I'll be at Disney World, dang.

I did see a lone Anakin from the Fox wave at the store across town yesterday.

I also saw a few more recent figures popped up at Tuesday Morning today - Aqua Droid, Shirtless Savage, Phase II Clone etc. Still $6.99 each.

Very limited (1-2 cases of anything) but I too saw some "new" stuff at the other local one for you Bob.

Got an INC, and a couple Legends 2012 figs I skipped, and a CW Yoda just for the cape more or less.  Shameless but for $5 out the door, fine.

Looked to be two cases of Wave 2 TVC...  only one case of Legends and Clone Wars on pegs though if my eyes weren't deceiving me.
