I have a big dilemma, when I started this hobby in 1995, I opened everything, then came the adult age, wife, kids. I continued to buy everything, but starting with the Revenge of the Sith stuff, I said to myself that I would open later, now 17 years later, my garage is full and I dont many place left. I was trying to fit everything in boxes, but with 4 ships per box I will need a lot of boxes.

So should I buy rubbermaid storage bins and open everything or keep everything sealed to give to the kids when I die? I don't plan to die soon by the way. In my mind, I would open everything, but the amount of money I'll lose...... the dilemma...

EARLY ADMISSION (10 am entry) –
I thought we should start a dedicated thread to discuss the new, jaw-dropping price increases seen for toys across the board at ToysRUs.

I went to my TRU today since I had to do a return before the Jan 31st deadline.  It's definitely just about every collectible toy going up in price, the Hot Wheels are now $2 each, the Voyager-class Transformers that were $40 pre-pandemic are now $50. 

One interesting thing I noticed today is that the employees were jamming all the SW, Marvel and Transformers into one aisle whereas they normally occupy 3 aisles. I asked him why they were squeezing all the toys into such a tight space and he told me that TRU will now be selling books!  So they are making aisle space for a LOT more books.

His boss had told him that the reason is because books are higher margin.  Okay, but I'm not going into a TRU to buy books, I can go to other book stores including Amazon and get them for 50% off, so we�

Where is my BS Bohdi?
Guys!

Found the motherload this morning at one of my local Walmart stores!

5 of each of the new CW Animated 50th Anniversary figures:

- Barriss Offee
- Luminara Unduli
- Aayla Secura
- ARC Trooper (Red)
- ARC Trooper (Blue)

They were sitting on a shelve in the boys section, not even on the pegs in the SW section. 19.97$ each.

I took all of them to cover my needs and tose of my friends.

These were not even showing on Walmart.ca, so I wasn't even expeting them to show up at retail. And had them on order from Walmart US to have them shipped to a friend. Now I can just cancel my US order.

So be on the look out, they're here. And most probably the other 3 figures (Luke Endor, DS and Tusken) will show up sooner than later as well.

This made my day.  :)
Proof of full vaccination will be required in Ontario for public gatherings. This will be checked in the hotel lobby when you arrive. Masks are mandatory.
