    Hey So Cal peeps - I am going to be down there this weekend and was wondering if anyone has been to Frank and Sons lately and if any of the vendors carry a good amount of older Star Wars 6 in. Black Series figures? Thanks

    I'd suggest waiting on the TRU release.

    In addition to Boople’s suggestion, unless you’re looking for the throwback Black Series I’d suggest checking your local Walgreens stores. I’ve found almost every TLJ figure at various stores recently.

    Did find a Titans Returns Wave 6 Slugslinger at the San Jose Walmart (Almaden Expy). One left on the shelves when I was there around lunchtime.

    I hope it's the same case as Arcee.

    Yeah I recommend checking Walgreens for older ones (usually the ones in the boonies are best). I saw Boushh Leia at Cape and Cowl's in Fountain Valley. Frank and Son's usually carries the black series (I can think of one exhibitor in particular) but I haven't been there in three months. Luckily neither of the two you are looking for will be hard to find, though Cody will be more expensive now that Gree and Rex are out.

    Are you referring to the packaging or wave case? If it's packaging then yes; if wave case, then no.

    No I mean I'm hoping it will end up on Toys R Us's site eventually like Arcee did.

    They did say it would appear at retail so yes, Toysrus is the obvious choice. Hopefully it doesn't go to Walmart or something. Walmart exclusives always suck to get.

    I was just there last Saturday, there is a ton of Vendors that have Black Series at a marked up price. You can haggle with most of them though.

    Any dealer sightings? Frank and Sons? Are there any LA area local sellers? Seems like the only local sellers anyone talks about are in the Bay area.

    Hey Bay Area people, I’m in town for the week and testing my luck to see if there were any sightings of overloard while I’m up here. Let me know. Thanks in advance.
