Now that's an impressive thrift shop find no matter who you are! It looks great!

There should probably be an AT-AT in retail circulation at all times just to meet the frequent demand. We complain when they're full price or retailer exclusives but when there are none left in stores we wish they still had some.

I had thought about getting one back when they dropped to $50, but never found that one at that price. I really don't have the space for the full sized big AT-AT. $6.99 was just too good to pass up.

For $6.99 I can't imagine many of us would pass that up. That probably qualifies as the Score of the Week!

That's insane and awesome! You can honestly probably find some of the spare parts on eBay although they'll likely cost more than $7.

Why can't all Hasbro Star Wars toy purchases be this cheap and this cool?

I would have never expected to get this guy...But I scored an R4-P44 on Ebay for like $12. It had a mismatched leg (with both legs being backward), and it just so happened I had the correct missing leg for it. I've seen it go for $30+, so I'm definitely happy to add it and the other droids to my collection! Here recently I decided to try and add two droids each month, without spending more than $20 for both.

Found a nice surprise today at the theater where we saw Rogue One. A local vendor had a table set up inside selling figures and other goodies. He had a TVC Rebel Soldier Echo Base battle gear. He was asking $10. I of course had to grab it at that price.

I picked up a few figures on beater cards for $3 each today including two TVC battle droids and a Ben Quadrinaros today at a school flea market sale.
