    The deep dark recesses of my brain.

    Where's the strangest location you've found a figure that you didn't expect to find?

    I have two. First I found an Aunt Beru at a CVS (Drug Store) that was all by herself in the toy section. I guess noone wanted a seventies looking female "action figure"

    The other is r2-b1 the yellow/blue r2 unit. this my fiancee found in a k-mart that she would check for me thatwas close to here work at the time. She just happened to be looking and decided to look all the way in the back of the figs and lo' and behold there it was.

    your stories........

    Where "text" & "friend" are (n) & "fail" is (v)


    Before the big sell-off of formerly-rare POTF2 Freeze Frame figs, I found Helmet Luke, Boushh Chewie, Lobot, Mothma, etc. at Electronic Boutique for $4.99 each.
    I also found a POTF2 Boba Fett gun on the floor of the hotel I used to work at.
    Too late; I already copyrighted these parodies: Rogue Juan, Rogue Won, Rogue Huan, Rogue Wan, Rogue Obi-Wan, Rouge One, Rogue Wand.

    I guess Target would not be a strange place but it was the last aisle. It was a Qui-Gon Mos Espa on clearance - $1.54!

    Not so much strange as just good luck.

    Most of Ep 1's first few waves at my local supermarket, that one really surprised me.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
