    gosh darnit, no wonder why I couldn't find one of these puppies anywhere

    (not to pick on you barada, I probably would have loaded my cart with a few myself).

    31 Commtech troopers lined up in a row.... Mmmm.... My mouth is watering....

    Did you buy them all at once? I would have loved to have seen the look on the cashier's face!

    Yep, they filled my shopping cart! When I went up to the cashier he said, "It's like you're building your own Imperial army." I said, "That's the idea." Then he said, "I bet they still wouldn't be able to hit anything." So I said, "Just shut up and load the bags fat-boy!"

    Just kidding on that last quote.

    I picked up 24 comtech stormies here in the UK for £5 a pop. I bought them in batches of six with a week between purchases so as not to deprive other army builders of the chance to get hold of them. Now I wonder why I buy them at all.......

    Inflatable Pepsi cans?

    Do you remember the inflatable Pepsi cans the various stores/convenient stores had in the summer of '99? I wanted some of those real bad. I finally managed to trade some figures for one from a friend.

    But last fall, while going to a local festival, I passed a yard sale and the guy had the inflatable gold Yoda Pepsi can for sale. I turned right around and went back. I was determined to get that can, one way or another. He sold it to me for $1!!! I couldn't believe it!! I was willing to offer up to $20 for it!

    The guy worked at a Pepsi distributor and had a ton of SW stuff he'd given away to friends and family.

    Dag! Now I know why I was never able to find any of those Stormtroopers anywhere!!! Oh, well. My life sucks anyhow.
    I know I won't be able to get a fair resell on those so I'm not even gonna bother looking.

    Well... I got 3 R2-B1s for $1.97 at Family Toy as well as all of the cloth goods figures (except Amidala). I got the Princess Leia collection sets for $2.00 each. That was pretty good... I thought.

    The commtech stormies I bought were probably part of the same seven million container loads that brought America that $1.97 sale deal. Only after import tax and all the usual mark up shenanigans I end up paying £5 that's what? $3.57 each. So it's still a good deal when you look at it. Especially when up til then a commtech stormie had cost as much as $10.71 or £15.
    My best deal before that was the royal starship I bought for next to nothing. I still have it up for trade if anyone in the UK is willing to offer anything for it. I don't know....say an Eopie..............
