    Thanks for the tip! *jumps on bike*

    I have also discovered an obscure dollar store in the Belmead (182st and 90ave abouts) area that has Queen Amidala mini-backpacks.
    They are shiny and pink and 4 or 6 dollars.
    No Edmonton FanForce male should be without one.

    seems to me that dollar stores often end up with weird cool buys. like the one by my house that used to have clone troopers and stuff.

    Just dropping by to see how the collecting is going out here. Have you been getting the OTC figures out here in the local stores...

    I picked up some figures at Save-On-Foods a couple of weeks ago - Jango, Vader and Luke. It wasn't easy either......had to deek out my husband who was trying to block my view....LOL They were $3.99 each.

    Hello,

    I have been all over and calling for the OTC and the VOTC series. And where do I find them... Calgary. Cheaper figures and cheap shipping. I called a store called Chinook Hobby West and they had all the figures I was looking for. I got Bespin Leia the VOTC Leia and Unleashed Leia (which I have been serching for since she got released, the first time). Edmonton has some stuff but its always way overpriced in the Comic & collectable stores. And I can never find the ones I want at the big retail stores.

    Bah, I will be forever surfing Ebay.

    Well there you go. I may be complaining to much. But I mostly collect only the female Star Wars figures and there are not many of them and they are hard to find...

    I am still looking for Padmé Lars Homestead, Padme Secret Cememony, and Ayy Vida Twi'lek Club Patron. If anyone knows where I can find those figures and I don't have to go in debt to get them let me know.

    Thanks a million.

    I found a few OTC at Walmart in the North end here. But there was only three left when I found them, so I have Han, Chewie and Bespin Luke. If anyone else in the city knows where to find these figs, let me know!

    Ummmm....maybe at Dave's house? We could plan a raid...it's not like he could stop all of us at once. Someone could distract him by trying to touch the new Cylon costume and the rest of us could run up the stairs and grab as much as we can. Who's in??
