I walked out chuffed to bits. Bagged a Vader and the dude in white for £1.99 each :) Was so pleased. The only two of those they had.

It was some days later I realised that it was Thrawn that was hard to get, not Krennic :lol: Still, I'm chuffed I've now got Krennic as I didn't have him either.


:lol: Scruffy - funny. Not got him either. Full run on! :lol:

One has been listed in a lot of six R1 MOCs - if it stays reasonable you could sell the others and get him for minimal outlay - if anyone can't find it and wants the link let me know (not my listing by the way)

I hear your pain guys, I roped myself in to these with a KS20 as I have a weakness for droids & the sculpt was so dam nice, next time ended up with a death trooper, next time a stormtrooper & got a little sucked in :lol: found myself feeling very odd about it as I normally only collect vintage, but this range really is bloody good, really wanted the smurf after watching all the episodes of Rebels & had been on the hunt ever since with sod all luck, but my boat finally came in 2 weeks back in Pwllheli as they had one, right at the back it was & sadly the only one they have had in, but least I got one in the end, got quite a few of the figures now, I will keep my eye's peeled for you all, have a feeling I am going to end up with a few others with them being only 1.99 now, the stormie sculpt is bloody good init.

I would really like that flamethrower trooper, but not seen one anywhere, saying that we only have a HB's & B&M here & it's normally very slim pickings.

I hope they keep up with the 3.75" range for the new films like solo & fett, can see me getting a fett for sure 8)

Found one of the Thrawn's in a HB on the outskirts of Edinburgh - very chuffed for £1.99!

So tempting to come out with more shore and death troopers at that price - too bad the wife was with me. Always puts the skids on excessive Star Wars purchases :lol:

Trip to Hounslow today involved checking the Home Bargains in Hounslow and Southall.

Had some luck with non SW collections in Hounslow (Justice League and Guardians of the Galaxy) but no Thrawn and in Southall the figs were few and far between and also still £2.99.

Contemplating a trip up north where there are clusters of stores - somewhere like Liverpool but not guarantee they'll have any!!!
TFA Singles - 97% complete avg £4 each
TFA Doubles - 78% complete avg £5.50 each
R1 Singles - 79% complete avg £3.30 each
R1 Doubles - 50% complete avg £5.50 each
TLJ Singles - 40% complete avg £4 each
TLJ Doubles - 0% complete avg £0 each

well was at the car boot in anglesea yesterday so ent as far as Hollyhead to check all the stores, next to nothing, managed to pick up a KS20 but that was my lot between 5 stores.

I would like a few death troppers if anyone see's any going, also fancy a flame trooper, I will keep checking for the rest of you on the thrawn front

Can’t fault you there, I got mine from eBay a couple of weeks ago for £12. Not the best price but far from the worst I’ve seen.

The amount I spent on Petrol I could have bought many Thrawns.

I guess the thrill is walking through the pet food section of Home Bargains is worth it.... :?
