    Lucky me, I live in Durant, Oklahoma.
    YIPPEE!!!!!!!!

    -BUT-

    It's pretty close to Dallas, so I usually find stuff when, in the rare event, it comes out on the market.

    Here's an oldie but a goodie...I'll repeat the first part of the first post for everyone who hasn't read it:

    "Since a lot of our success at finding certain things seems to depend greatly on our location, I was just curious as to where you live. (wow, what a longggg sentence. )"

    I still live outside of Detroit. :)

    West London, UK. In fact, about three miles from Heathrow Airport.

    I generally have to travel all over London to buy stuff, thought there is a guy in my town who has a collectors shop and a couple of boxes of loose vintage guys, in varying condition. Usually for newer stuff I go to Forbidden Planet, but this is a bit expensive so I'm more inclined to use www.brianstoys.com or www.figuresandtoys.com. Even with the postage rates from the USA, I generally pay £4-£5 less per figure than buying from shops here. The UK is awful for buying new stuff, so we have to rely on importers. Another good place is "They Walk Among Us" in Richmond, who are cheaper than Forbidden Planet, or a little place I know in Romford...

    Hartlepool in the northeast of England.

    It's a struggle to find most Star Wars products here.

    There's a scalper in nearby Stockton and a sci-fi store in not so near Newcastle but prices are outrageous.
