    My best friend is one of the biggest fans I have ever met, and I have met a whole lot... Where are the best mint condition vintage figurines of any size available?

    I don't collect vintage figures, but I'd ask the guys over at the forums where to find them.

    There is a guy at the Perkiominville (sp) flea market that has trash cans of loose vintage figures. And there is a store in Ocean City NJ (I can't remember what street, but I can find out if you are serious) that has near mint carded figures for a reasonable price. There is also a guy on Ocean City's boardwalk but he is an AHole who rips people off.

    Yeah, the two guys on Ocean's City's boardwalk seriously rip everyone off. I saw 'em selling ROTS figures this summer to little kids for 17.95.

    Ocean City in general is a bunch of rip off artists.

    Surf Mall on Ocaen City, NJ boardwalk is the one place that sells Star Wars stuff. And I can not think of the life of me the other place on the boardwalk. Has a yellow awning.

    Just to let you know - Surf Mall is a rip off. The prices that guy charges are terrible. I would only buy if I exhausted every other resource.

    Hey - sorry missed this post. I've been up to nothing. Oh wait I am a dad now, so I guess that would be my answer. I have a beautiful baby girl. I would expect a congrats from you, but from reading various posts it seems you do not have the abillity to respond for the time being.

    As a side note to collectors - I noticed that the Toys R Us in South Philly (right at Walt Whitman exit of 95) has been keeping up to date with hard to find figures.
