I'll have to put in an order. Disney Stores are way out of the way for me, but my buddy frequents them. I passed on this one when he made his last run.

Seems like overkill to me, but I also can count on one hand the amount of figures I actually purchased at retail stores in 2018; essentially only stuff I absolutely couldn't order online. One of those lines absolutely will not be stocked on retail shelves, and based on 2018, it'll be TVC.

Still at a crossroads as I keep wanting to get rid of stuff, but I also won't stop buying stuff.

Hasbro Star Wars: Black Series 6 inch and Vintage Collection. Still debating giving up the Black Series/6 inch stuff.

LEGO Star Wars: I'm considering ending it. There's too much product being released, and at least 75% of it costs over $70 per set. I haven't bought anything in ages, which is depressing, and I'm starting to question just how many X-Wings I really need, especially when they cost $80 and sales are a lot more rare than they were a few years ago. That's not to mention that all my stuff is still in the original boxes since I live in an apartment. Maybe I should cut my losses and sell, I dunno.

Hasbro Marvel Legends: Any classic Spider-Man stuff

Bandai SH Figuarts: Anything Star Wars. I love this line so much. It's expensive, especially the exclusives, but there are only a handful of releases each year so it's pretty affordable in the end. I think the most I've ever spent on it is $120 per month when they did the Last Jedi monthly releases in 2017. Already have ROTS Obi-Wan and Dooku on preorder, and I expect there will be a bunch of Episode IX stuff released at the end of the year.

Medicom MAFEX: Star Wars line seems to have ended but they're branching out into Marvel, both MCU and classic comic stuff. I have the classic comic Spider-Man and Venom on preorder already, and will probably continue buying Spidey stuff.

DC Collectibles Batman The Animated Series: I put this every year, but the figures are harder and harder to find (i.e. my local comic stores have stopped buying new figures), and the production runs keep getting more and more limited, meaning the prices are higher on the secondary market. This line is the reason I started buying 6 inch scale toys, so it's disappointing to quit without having a complete set of the stuff I want, but it's looking like I'll have to.

H&H Bagels wouldn't give me the day off. At least I'll still get holiday pay!

Grabbed TFA Leia from Ross today for $3

It's absolutely not just you Dave. I used to buy every set but I'm a year behind since most of the Last Jedi sets were too expensive, and then vanished from store shelves. The only sets I want from Solo are the TIE and the Falcon but that's like $250 total.

Sounds like I should hit up one of the many Rosses in town, as I still need that wave

I found Hoth Leia and Skiff Lando at Target last night, but left them as I am broke

A 4-LOM preorder I made months ago arrived today from Dorkside

Picked this up at a small town Walmart over the weekend. They had 4 total and I just grabbed the one. First time I've seen it, as it doesn't appear to have hit the city yet (or scalpers got them all). Rang up at $17-something

Found a Mimban Stormtrooper at an out of town Walmart over the weekend.
