Not really a poll or anything, as they don't really open things up for discussion, but lets hear about something Star Wars-y you really, really freaked out about when you found - something that made you super happy.
1. Luke X-Wing at London Toys R Us - wave 2 of the POTF2 line. I was so freaking happy about him, it was bizarre. For some reason they had a few of him, but none of the other wave 2 figs??? I remember buying 3 complete sets of wave 2 from the fan club, then selling up here for a real pretty penny.
2. Monkey Leia, the Bay, Kitchener. Here's a dinger of story. Back in 95 or 96 the Bay sent a flyer out advertising SW figs at a low price of 6.99 or something. Included in the flyer was Leia - who was extremely short packed in the beginning, like non-existant. JJR calls up the Bay (1800 # right on the flyer) and gripes about not being able to find that figure in any Bay store, no matter where I checked or called. Now get this: the lady says to me "I'll find you one. I can appreciate your frustration." Not two weeks later, a US carded one shows up in my mail box - at no cost to me. Mind you the card was bent, but who the hell cares????? I was so freaked out......
Within a month, the Bay in Kitchener called me up as well saying they got one in (I'd left messages at every Bay from Windsor to Toronto asking for her). I jumped in the car and drove the hour to get her post haste, sold the first dinged one for..... you guessed it........
50 bucks. No kidding.
Now that's what I call customer service!!!!!!!!! Not long after she was showing up in spades, with the different belt sculpt. Man.
3) All 4 Target accessory sets up here in my Prince Rupert Zellers, before many of the US people posting here had even found them down there! Sweeeeeeeeeeeet. And wicked toys too.
How 'bout you guys?
