    How did you find out....?

    Reading a post by Mr. B'omarr Monkey caused me to ask this question..

    How did you find out about the new SW line?

    I was working in Caldors(discount retail very similar to K-Mart). I was doing undercover security work, so basically I walked around the store all day. I was in the toy dept. and saw the POTF2 line hanging there. I looked at them long and hard thinking "This is very odd". I loved SW and had my vintage figures, all loose of course, so I picked up what they had and purchased them. I thought it was a nostalgic thing and would never turn into what we have today. I am glad I bought those figures as I thought long and hard before purchasing them.

    So, whats your story?

    Wow, that was a long time ago. We're gettin' old, ya know.

    All I remember is loving the Micromachines that had come out a few months earlier. Believing that this was going to be the extent of the Star Wars related toys for the future, I eagerly bought them all as soon as I found them.

    Then, at some point, I think a friend of mine told me that he had heard that new action figures would be released as well. I'm sure that I probably just ran across them as I was hunting down more Galoob stuff one day.

    I was watching TV on Saturday (I think it was Animaniacs) in September of '95 and saw a commercial. I just about messed my pants I was so excited. But it wasn't until right before Xmas that I finally found my first two, Luke and Ben.

    Good thing I asked now before Alzheimer's really sets in.

    Wait minute shouldn't this be "A long time ago, in a toy store far, far away ..." or something similar?

    I was a TRU with my brother and one of his friends and his friend knew about them and they had Lando (who was at that minute hard to find) and he told me to buy him for the hell of it. And now at least $10,000 later here I am. Some may have spent more but that's a lot of money to me.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    I was watching TV one noon and they announced the POTF figures, then I went to McAllen and bought some figures.

    Re: How did you find out....?

    I remember walking out of a toy aisle in a Hills discount department store and seeing the first wave of orange card Star Wars figures hanging there. I nearly walked right by them. There was really no hesitation to buy on my part, just an anxious excitement that I still feel today whenever I find new toys.

    Up till that time I had bought the SW Bend-Ems, Action Masters, and MicroMachines, but had no idea that Kenner figures were on the way.

    Can't really remember. I think I got them as a present one day but I actually never thought about them not being at the store at the time. I think I always thought that they were there.

    Stop trying' to pin that on me!

    I found out a few months before they were released in Wizard (I don't Toyfare was published yet).
