Sounds like fun. Too bad I don't have the cash to spare!
Woohoo! I got my Lucas Storm Trooper!
Went to Lowe's and was rather annoyed that they already have their Christmas decorations out and for sale. Well, actually, I was annoyed until I found the goodies pictured below.
I think the mini-ships might be the same as last year and I've already got a set. However, I'm pretty sure the others are new.
Whoa, selling xmas alredy
i have the bottom ones
Target on Foothill & Haven have Christmas stuff on sale!!!
They have new Star Wars Tree Decorations, Darth Vader Stockings with Voice, Yoda Snow Globe, A Vder Snow Globe where he's building a death star, a handmade ornament of the vader building a snow star with santa hat and they are also selling the the dash board buddies but had none left.
They have a new t-shirt in too. It's got an animated yoda with his finger pointing and uner it says "my finger, pull" but they had none left.
The other target i went to didn't have any christmas stuff out
I was down in Costa Mesa today for the Crusin for a Cure car show and decided to pop into the Saw Meet next door. Great show, got about 100 pics from it.
Score! I found EPIII Figures. Got a couple I needed for $4 each and the battle damaged Anakin/Vader for $9. One day I will complete my EPIII action figure collection!
They had loads of different stuff. I saw the dahboard buddies for $7 each, i'm not too keen on the detail of them so i decided to try and get them cheaper at Target/Wal Mart.
I've looked and looked with no luck and am now asking for the gang's help. I need the Yoda and the Darth Vader Dashboard Drivers. I found 3PO (my least favorite), but can't find the others. If somebody stumbles across either of those two could you please pick them up for me? I'll pay ya back! Thanks!!
I saw all three at the market in Costa Mesa but they were $7 each and I avoided buying them.
[link=http://www.fs-collectibles.com/index.htm]Frank and Sons[/link]! This is the place that HSF has long since discovered. It's incredible. If you're a collector of just about anything, this is the place to go to. I think we need to set up a FF road trip!
I like it.
If Frank & Sons was open on Sundays, we were gonna head down there today. Bummer! Our plan failed. This place would make for a great road trip on a Snow Day!
Nice to see you on the boards. You haven't been around much lately! Guess I barely missed you at the blood drive. Saw your dad, though. That's sad that you couldn't get on the bone marrow list... although, you still could have given blood!!!
A road trip to Frank & Son's sounds fun. Don't have the funds to spend, but looking around would be fun. Frank & Son's is open on Saturday's and Wednesday's every week. Not sure of the hours.
I have been there a lot over the years. Lots of collectibles there.
Yeah, well, I was a little pisced off at not being able to be tested for the bone marrow. It was the only reason I was going to give blood in the first place.
hello all. other than collectables, here's a sample of what you're all missing from time to time at frank-n-sons.
here's the link to some pics from last april...enjoy

The 28th is a Saturday.
The Target Greatland (outside of San Bernardino) has their exclusive Grievious figure marked down to $13+. That sure didn't take long!
[link=http://www.sideshowtoy.com/behindtheshow/?page_id=2089]This[/link] is a Sideshow Collectable review of their Mace Windu figure. Very funny!! Just a warning, it's not really for kids! Minor adult content, but funny!
I'm gonna go to Frank & Son' next Sat if anybody's up for it!
I wish I could, but that's the date of our school carnival. I have a booth where I'll sell my Cookie Lee Jewelry and I'm also selling some of the posters I got from the Comic-Con for the library. I do want to make a trip down there before Christmas, though!
Which reminds me, i have a bundle of those posters and stuff left over from our meeting back then, do you want me to bring it tomorrow?
Sure. I'll see if I can earn a few extra bucks with it for a good cause.
Toys 'R' Us is selling M&M Star Wars ("Mpire") tree ornaments, as well as some other Star Wars ornaments on sale for $5.99 or less.
