Toy Run Tuesday #111 - Star Wars Currency

Hello Toy Runners! This week I got the last of my preorders in the mail. I ended up with a case of Purge troopers, and 2 of each of the Ahsoka wave. It was a pretty great week. Along with those, I received an order of in-galaxy currency to add to my collection of various Star Wars monies. I don’t have the kind of cash flow it takes to collect high end prop replicas of sabers and blasters, but metal money is a relatively inexpensive way to get into the prop side of Star Wars collecting. Check out my additions by clicking here…

Toy Run Tuesday #110 - Major Preorder Drop!

We discussed preorders a couple weeks ago, and one thing I forgot to mention is that they always seem to come all at once! I had more than 20 figures drop this week, but 6 of them were delayed on Amazon. Nevertheless it is a really good haul! Click here to check it out and leave comments of your own new toys!

Toy Run Tuesday #108 - Preorders

Hi all! It’s a Tuesday evening, but not too late for TRT! This week I dont’ have a single new Star Wars anything to share. I think that’s the first time in 2 years of running this article. If you want to see my Tech Deck ramp I made, or my custom Halo figures let me know. This is a Star Wars site, though, so I’m keeping it related. I did want to talk about something: preorders. Preorders bring me no joy when it comes to collecting. I look at my amazon orders and the preordered figures get lost in the backlog of household items. Preorders get forgotten. I want to ask you today: How much stuff do you have preordered? And, Do preorders excite you as a collector? Let us know in the comments.

Toy Run Tuesday #102 - A Walmart Miracle

This week Walmart came through and delivered a MINT Paploo. I mean this thing was packaged in a normal sized box with extra padding lying flat on the bottom of the package. I was shocked at how good the condition was for a Walmart exclusive. More…

Toy Run Tuesday #95 - Store Finds

Well, here’s something you don’t see very often… Toys! In the store! It was a miracle. This particular Walmart in San Tan, AZ must have gotten a Hasbro shipment in as I found a fresh case of repacked TVC figures, repacked GI Joe figures, and brand new Marvel Legends that coincide with several recent shows and even some upcoming ones… Amazing how Hasbro can do that.

Toy Run Tuesday #91 - Custom Parts for Too Many Projects

Toy Runners… I have a problem. I accumulate too many parts for customs and then have a thousand projects to work on and finish them slowly! Does anyone else have a problem with this kind of accumulation of collectibles? I’m sure we all do in one way or another. It’s a good thing we can talk about it in the comments…

This week I’ve been playing a new Star Wars video game. Well, new to me as I never had the chance to play it before it’s re-release this week. I know this one is a favorite among Star Wars fans and gamers, and after dumping probably 6 hours or more into it this week, I can see why! Now if I could only get ahold of the Delta Squad 4 pack without giving up my kidney… Click here to share with us what you’ve been collecting this week!
