The figures are out there. They are not easy to find, they are not plentiful, but if you hit the stores often enough, if you're lucky enough, if the Force is with you, new Star Wars vintage collection figures are in stores to be bought. And not just action figures, new Star Wars Titanium vehicles are hitting stores, plus even more Star Wars toys are on closeout for the bargain hunters out there.
Are we getting enough of Starkiller lately? Let's go to the scoreboard! Want to prove your droid naming expertise? Then I need your help! And let's talk Clone Troopers because there are so many flavors. And are we as a toy community still as gullible as we were in 1995? I think the answer may be "yes" but maybe I'm the fool! Oh, and my mailbag is empty, so send in your newest questions whenever you feel like!
GHR hopes all of you are having an awesome Memorial Day weekend, enjoying a great long weekend and barbecue with the family, and honoring the brave who have served and presently serve this great nation of ours. There's a nice Target sale this week, and as we reported earlier, the B-Wings are cheap, but not for long. UPDATE: TRU also having a BOGO through June 2nd.

It's the 35th anniversary of Star Wars…nothing but STAR WARS! Which made GHR pause and think that the 30th Anniversary Collection was five years ago? Man, how time flies. Regular merchandise is showing up with more frequency, and so is older stuff at great close out discounts. Tuesday Morning was only an awesome tune from The Pogues until I recently found some Vintage Wave 9 for $5 each.
