Part of the problem we all suffer with is a limited number of retailers.

Back when I was a kid (and dinosaurs roamed the earth) there were many more opportunities because there were more retailers. You had Sears, Montgomery Wards, JC Penny's that each had a permanent toy department. You also had local/regional chain department stores that had permanent toy departments (Macy's; Gimbel's; Frederick & Nelson; Woodward & Lothrop; etc.) plus you had 5 & dime stores like Woolworth's; Kresgee's; Newberrys that had toys.


And we also had major toy retailers like Toys R Us, Child World and Play World.

I've been finding JLU figures at Dollar General ($3 for single cards, $5 for 3 packs) and of course Big Lots.

Thing is, someone who devotes as much time to "the hunt" as I do should really see new JLU stuff all of the time. But I do not.

This really sums it up for me. Like H the D, I spend a fair amount of time on "the hunt" and am continually surprised that it's not easier for someone like me to lay my hands on certain figures. (Lately, any figures.) I don't even mind paying a bit more to purchase figures online. But like some other folks, I can't really afford some of the online prices I see. (And before somebody tells me that I'm spending more money on gas and yadda yadda, I don't own a car.)

I just wish BBTS would get that dang "Assortment 99F" in stock already. I can afford that, and it would go a long way to calming my JLU restlessness.


If you don't have a car....how do you spend ANY time on "the hunt"?

Well, some cities have really nice public transportation systems... not saying that's how Rebis hunts, but it's possible...

Just put your parents on a guilt-trip and make THEM look for stuff. :)

Peace,

Bullseye! I live in the center city of Philly where owning a car is possible, but neither convenient nor completely necessary. (Plus my old car kept getting broken into). Gotta love public transportation.

I've given up on stores the last thing I found was a lightray and huntress 3 packs. And since I'm 14 and in suburbia I can't get to target much so I use the net.

Except for, you know, all the time it takes, per your earlier comments. Time is money. :wink:
