Just getting the Scarif Trooper and the Tanker made that a worthwhile trip!

Hell, one of them would've done it for me, haha.  I wanted or would like at some point to attempt a helmetless Enfys Nest so that was nice too.  She's become one of the tougher figures to track down out of recent waves.  The Tanker though, he's gone up quite a bit I've noticed and I think I needed a few more of them because I kinda went nuts on tanks when they hit the $20s before xmas.

They had a lot of Range Troopers which are cool but I just didn't want as many.

I took a trip up New York's Hudson Valley yesterday in search of records.  In the process I happened across a comic shop that had not one, but TWO of the new TVC Stormtroopers in stock.  Since it was a comic shop I was fully prepared for some serious sticker shock.  Much to my surprise their prices were at the MSRP - $12.99 each!  So I got another 2 Stormtroopers yesterday.

Where in the Hudson Valley were you?  I grew up in Beacon!

It was in Beacon.  And a pretty cool comic book shop.

Very cool!  Although I have family there, I haven't been there in a couple of years.  Main street Beacon is incredibly different from when I grew up.

The shop I went to was good.  As for the town?  It's pretty cool.  A lot of people who are there now left NYC and decided to make a go of it upstate.  The downtown area on Main Street is really interesting in terms of shops, bars and restaurants.

My local Wal*Mart,  which is in the middle of a remodel, reset the action figure aisle and finally blew out the TVC Wave 1 leftovers and Solo BS figures on massive clearance (as well as blowing out about 30 Solo Kessel playsets they didnt have before the reset for 10 bucks each.) When I was there earlier today the sole remaining figure was a TVC Snoke with a $2.50 price tag.

I was sad to see the new planogram that showed 3 hooks for Black Series figures, 6 hooks for lightsabers, and a shelf space for the Kessel playset, and nothing else. Guess I am done there until Force Friday in a couple months.

Picked up a Snoke and Stormtrooper at my local Wally today for $7 each. I was glad to get them since I needed these for my carded collection.

Not VC, but it seems like this is where the action is at these days. Ordered another TIE striker because I want to have a little group of them, and they're a good, cheap ship.

Also ordered 2x RO Stormie and 2x Gammy. So glad the Gammorean guard is back out. I'm hoping we see a few more Jabba's characters given the same treatment, since there are plenty of doubles we now need, between the palace and the barge. My barge is noticeably "Wooof-less."

Got a 2nd Striker thinking itd be nice to try adding the rear seating and the bomb section and chute in the middle.  Looks possible to some degree.🤔

Let me know how that goes. I was kind of interested to see if it was possible as well.
