NFS - No Thrawns found in SE Lincolnshire, however what is it that makes these so tempting! Is because I like TFA and Rogue One?

Toys R Us had a Thrawn Black Series when I went this week. Was very tempted by him but didn't take him for some reason.
Looking for:

Star Tours items
Yoda- Pre Production items - vintage, modern, anything from any range.
Star Wars Books!!

After a Thrawn 3.75" RO but so is everyone else by the looks of it. Not into the black series. Not sure if its size of packing or its style (and obviously price) or not what I relate to figure collecting for me like the times of old.
I do like the new stuff though but not as much as vintage of course! :lol:

My mate was in Forbidden Planet a while back, and they had 10 in there he wishes he had purchased them.

Now I know this might seem greedy but I am actually after two. However, one is not for me but a fellow collector who has priority as I knew nothing about it until he mentioned them.
I'll keep looking because at £1.99 how can anyone not refuse it! :shock: :lol:

One Thrawn was found in Home Bargains in Kilmarnock, Scotland, a couple of days ago - bargain at £1.99...

Unfortunately Thrawn is not the only pain in ass for this run. Raddus,Galen erso and Lt Sefla only made it to a few online uk retailers from what i believe and ebay prices are £25-£30 for these i think Lt Selfa is a bit cheaper.
