Just an FYI if any of you have the Kroger grocery chain in your area: they are currently running a Buy 2-Get 1 Free deal on all SW figures, including 20" Black Series. Their prices are a little higher ($21.99) but it still works out to around $15 each which isn't terrible.

Stopped by a Walgreens after work that had nothing but did encounter a helpful manager who kindly printed out an inventory summary for all the local stores showing any stock for the SW 6" BS. That led me to another nearby store where I was able to get someone to pull a few from the back for me. Apparently around here they are only getting them in groups of 3. I got Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and Jedi Luke.  :)

I have a friend holding on to an extra Proto Boba for me, so now I just need to track down a couple of Black Pauldron Sandtroopers.

Look forward to busting these out tonight!

This is the water, and this is the well. Drink full, and descend. The horse is the white of the eyes, and dark within

Cool custom Nick! Is this from the same guy as your other 6" customs?

I picked up the black pauldron Sandtrooper last night at Walgreen's. He and Vader and Luke were actually sitting on top of another shelf away from the toy aisle with the rest of their overstock. Nice figure, definitely will be adding another one of these guys at some point. I need a break from Walgreens for awhile though.

Thanks to my cousin in law from Kansas City I was able to add Walgreen's Fett to my 6" Boba Fett collection.

Recieved my 5 Stormtroopers from DST last week, but unfortunately one of them had an ankle joint that was faulty. It moves from side to side, instead of front to back :(

I contacted DST, asked them if they could help me or if I should contact Hasbro instead. Since I don't live in the USA, I really wondered if contacting Hasbro would help. Let me tell ya, Teri from customer service solved the matter in hours. A replacement trooper is on his way to my place as we speak. Awesome work there.

I nabbed the new Sandtrooper from Walgreen's this morning as well as a second Proto Fett.  I wish the new Sandy was an all-clean version, but oh well.  Second Fett is up for grabs to the MN crowd.

Picked up Black Pauldron Sandtrooper #2 over lunch today. LOVE this figure. Hope I can stop at 2. I think I can.

Also got my Proto Boba figure from a fellow collector who was holding one for me. Every single one of these I have seen now (4-5 so far) has had the same errant silver spot on the right side of the faceplate. That has to be intentional I guess, but would love to hear if anyone has found one without this apparent "defect".

I was able to get Vader and Luke from Walgreens yesterday. I'm hoping to find the other three over the weekend.
