Thread: Army Builders

    Army Builders

    Who else went completely bonkers and bought up tons and tons of Stormtroopers, Snow Troopers, At St drivers, etc. when they were clearanced several years ago? I know I did and have lost count of the Stormtroopers, etc. I have. Someday I plan on making the Emperor's Arrival but may end up using vintage instead and selling these off.

    I ended up picking up two sets of the fan club 4 pack specials for stormtroopers right before Wizards shut down.

    I wanted more and never pulled the trigger until the HOF wave came out (same trooper, new packaging except for the black neck) but I am very pleased. with the CT Stormie.

    I was able to take advantage of the clearance sales as shown in my dioramas. The first time I saw them TRU had them dumped in the bins and there were several R2D2s with Holo Leias. I remember taking a cart full and there were two more bins that I didn't bother to go through. Though I called a couple of my friends and they were also able to take advantage of the clearance sale. There was also a time when the AT-ATs were on sale for $15 each at TRU and they had them stacked at least 50. Got a few and so did my friends.

    Re: Army Builders

    The best I ever did was stopping at every TRU store between NB and NH and picking up tons of Stormtroopers and Snowtroopers etc... for $2.99 each. At the time I was new to collecting and couldn't find these guys anywhere in Canada...so I was happy to find them. They had bins upon bins full of DS Troopers (that I passed on too)...argh!

    By "NB", Darkross meant New Brunswick - the Province of Canada directly east of Quebec (not to put words in your mouth, Darkross).

    I bought a good number of Snowtroopers and Stormtroopers, Royal Guards, etc. Now I'm in a dilemma - those POTF2 Stormies just don't cut the mustard anymore. I'm thinking of off loading them and the Royal guards to raise a little money for the rest of the year's stuff.

    Exactly...never been to Nebraska. New Hampshire is a good place to find everything.
