I read that as well Ben, and it might be worth checking the Family Dollars around town.  I couldn't really afford to get extras of many of the VOTC at $10 each, but at $5 I might pick up a few more.  Especially if there would be any Stormtroopers hanging about ;).

Got R2 and 3PO for $5 each at Family Dollar on Thursday...  On Sunday while on a toy run I found a hidden Family Dollar in the area and scored a Chewbacca.

They had plenty of R2 and 3PO's but no Stormtroopers.  :(  I'm sorta bummed I didn't get any of those actually.  I'd have been happy if all I found was one Stormie and never found those other 3.

They had Ben's, Luke's, and Leia's too...  no Han, Yoda, or Lando...  The 3 I saw the most of in this line next to Luke, Leia, and Obi-Wan.

You need Yoda? I'll swap you one for an Artoo.

Damn, and the local FD doesn't have ****.

Darby needs a Chewie, and I'd like to get an extra 3PO and maybe some Stormies. I'll bet they show eventually.

I heard the VOTC figures are showing up at Family Dollar stores. Chewie, 3PO, Stormtrooper, and Lando are the ones I heard mentioned. $5 each.

I traveled to the ghetto today (where the only local FD is located) and they were just unloading the truck, so I didn't see them. I did find some single packed GI Joes, so that was pretty cool.

I'll go back tomorrow or Monday and see if they received them.

I did the same thing today, one FD in my old neighborhood didn't have VOTC, though they had 3 sealed cases of Transformers that just came in. Another FD had a lone VOTC Obi-Wan, when I asked if they had anymore, they checked and found nothing. The guy said a truck was due during the week, so who knows, perhaps then they might have some more. Would be sweet to find cheap VOTC Stormies, one could only hope...

I'll see what I can find for everyone.  R2 and Chewbacca will be on my list...  And 3PO too.  Stormies I'm cornering if I find them,b ut I can try helping for anything else I find too.

Nah, I mentioned him as one of the king pegwarmers I noticed around here...  I'll keep my eyes open for more.  There's other FD's around, they're just all kind of randomly placed so they're inconvenient stops generally.

This one near my gf's so out of the way I don't think anyone knew about it but someone musta bought anything else they had...  Some SW fan out here must exist. :P

No FDs in Cali, but I'll hit some up when I get to Las Vegas at the end of the month.
