Welcome Wildcat. Glad to have another poster...
I have always had good luck at the Target in Williamsburg when I have been in that area. I live in Norfolk so I hit the Military Highway area with pretty decent regularity.
SW Legos are incredible. I too started a little late, but have found through ebay and reissues I have most of the sets I can afford (wanting with legos is often unrealistic).
Weekend report from me is don't waste the gas. Still looking for deluxe 3 and Tarkin wave. Target is home of the army builder - 41's for miles on Military.
