Saturday morning run

This morning was my most extensive Star Wars run in quite some time. Myself and most of the collectors in our area were all after the 30th anniversary collection which was supposed to go on sale today. Although I already had most of the set (thanks to the TRU run earlier this week)...there were other things I needed that were also hitting today, so I got up early to join the hunt.

First of all, I should mention that I was up until after 3:30 this morning hanging out with John, Elizabeth and I was running on very little sleep as it is. It should also be noted that yesterday, I woke up at 4am for no reason and could not get back to sleep. That's less than 7 hours sleep in the last two days. Even though I was tired, Star Wars toys had to be purchased, so there's no way I was skipping this.

The phone rang at 7:06am, it was Chris calling to tell me he had already found some clones at Wal Mart. He picked up a few for me and verified that I'd be hitting my stores. I would be. Left the house around 7:45 and hit the Target by my house. They had nothing from the 30th anniversary collection, but they did have a Titanium Chris needed. I picked it up for him and went on to the next Target, which also had no new figures. It was now around 8:40 and I still had over an hour to kill until Toys R Us opened, so I hit two Fred Meyers, neither had figures.

Met Chris in the parking lot of Toys R Us, he gave me the clones he had, plus he had also found some stuff I didn't have yet. We went into the store and they had restocked with the entire collection. Several collectors were there, everyone got some figures....I got a couple more was a great morning.

Met up with Jim and his son after I had checked out and traded a few figures with him. We all drove to a pancake house to try and have some breakfast, but the wait was too long, so I ended up going home and having breakfast there instead. When all was said and done, I spent a little over 150 bucks today. I am completely caught up on Hasbro stuff.
