    50% off all Star Wars toys from today onwards to make way for Episode 2 stock coming in the new year.

    Add to that a 10% discount if you've got a job there and you'd be laughing. Except I don't collect the toys anymore.

    I think we got rid of the last Qui-Gon's before Chrissy. But you could be in luck if you have a look.

    I'm not sure. But all the W4Ks closed down due to bankruptcy up this way.

    :eek:
    $10?

    Those Maul sabres are really hard to find because most of them were recalled for dodgy wiring, Dagsy. If it's all still mint in box etc. you could be sitting on an E-bay goldmine ;)

    Look at all the TRUbies in this thread! :p

    Dagsy that's definately TRU at Moore Park. The only W4K I've seen lately was the toy section of a Grace Bros. And Target usually has stacks of old Ep1 stuff. I've seen plenty of TC-14s and R2-B1s at my local Target, and I know someone who's been making a pretty penny off those things on eBay.

    Trust me DA, if I could find anymore of those TC-14s they'd be up for auction pretty damn quick. ;)
