Where Do You Buy Your Star Wars Toys?

Hello everyone! Today is audience participation time!
I would like to know where you buy your Star Wars action figures, vehicles and various other merchandise. This survey is meant to shed some light on various important details. Click here to read more!


We here on JTA represent the hardcore collecting community, but we’re also the ones who usually have the highest spending power. But where do you actually spend all the money?
And if you are not living in the USA, how much money do you actually spend at local stores and etailers and how much money do you spend ordering from Amazon USA, some of the other US etailers or on import figures from Japan?
This will shed some light on Star Wars toys sales numbers in the USA and how much collectors from outside the USA are a factor.

To find out more I’d like you to answer the following questions in the comments. This survey will be left open for a few days and I will follow it up with an in-depth analysis and discussion sometime next week.

I’d like you to only reply to the questions, we can discuss next week when the analysis will be published.
A special request to all the lurkers here: I’d like you to participate too. The more people reply, the better the analysis will be.


Question 1: what was your overall budget for Star Wars merchandise in 2017? Give the number either in USD or your local currency. An estimate will do.

Question 2: where do you buy your Star Wars merchandise? And what percentage of your budget to you spend at each store/website? An estimate will do.

Question 3: where do you live (the country is all I need)?


Here are my replies.

Question 1: 1900 euros

Question 2: Actionfiguren24 50% (mostly for exclusives and some regular Black Series figures), Nin-Nin Game (SHF figures) 34%, Amazon USA 10%, TRU Germany 6%

Question 3: Germany
