Store Reports / Latest Finds (2015...)

Post by MattG »

The last Store Reports thread was getting a bit long and cumbersome, so this replacement is a continuation from here.
It's customary, and very useful, on forums of this type to have a "Latest Finds" thread, so here's one for the SWNZ Message Boards.

Post here if you find the latest waves of Star Wars toys, books, whatever, with details of the store (branch, location), volumes, prices etc, and hopefully we'll be able to direct collectors to the best places to get the collectibles they seek. It's also helpful to share details of sales/price reductions etc.

Spotted this Darth Vader sweatshirt in the men's clothing section of K-Mart in Albany yesterday - originally $25, was on clearance for $15. I bought the last xs they had, but there were still S, M and L sizes left.

Farmers has a Lego Star Wars duvet set in two sizes - single for $79.99 and king single for $99.99 (both are available to buy on-line - $7 shipping nationwide). There is also a current promotion of 'buy one, get one free' on selected manchester, which this appears to qualify for.

If there isn't a K-Mart near you/with stock remaining, I'd be happy to pick up one up for you :)

There is nothing near me, so I would appreciate that, Kristy!

Thanks a bunch for the offer!

(I'll fire you a message.)

Shockingly spotted the latest wave of Black Series figures at Farmers Lower Hutt today.

Looked to have 2 cases and all figures were there. I remember Han Carbonite, boushh Leia, Jawas, Mosep, Chewbacca, Dagobah Vader, Dutch Vander, Rex, Doom, Thorn and C-3PO. This is the latest wave that I don't even think has been spotted in the US yet so no Wolffe in this assortment.

Keep your eyes peeled new stock is arriving!

Sweet...I'm after Mosep and the Jawas, so hopefully we'll see these elsewhere too.

Holy smokes, that is shocking. I will have to keep my eyes peeled locally. There's plenty in that wave that I really want. :D

Thanks for the heads-up, Steve!

Thanks indeed. I've just confirmed that the Glenfield Farmers has a couple of cases of these on the pegs...I came home with a Mosep and Jawa pack, plus a Boushh for Kristy. Photos coming shortly :)
