SAGA TOYS in St. Louis

If you’re anywhere near the St. Louis area, I have to recommend you check out SAGA TOYS.

I’ve personally already picked up many items from this collector (and kid!) friendly store and will continue to make them one of my weekly stops.

This place has a fantastic variety of loose and carded toys across a variety of brands such as Star Wars, GI JOE, Transformers, LEGO and more.  The prices are very fair too.

Be sure to check them out if you’re in the area, and “like” their Facebook Page!

A Week Before Christmas…

Tomorrow night, many of us will be seeing the highly anticipated new film, but what’s the retail situation looking like with only about  a week before Christmas?

Our focus on this post is really around what’s on the pegs at Wal-Mart, due to their exclusive rights to the 3.75″ Black Series line that most collectors (and yes, even many KIDS) want to get their hands on… we’re seeing reports come in across the continental U.S. that even Wave 3 is showing up in some areas, but sadly, it appears that some Wal-Mart stores have declined to carry this line past the initial wave… even removing space for the figures.

What’s the scoop in your area?  Share your experiences (good and bad) after the jump!

Recently our good friend Eric Berry (aka “Raylen” in our forums) from Hole in the Ground Productions took part in a podcast interview session with the folks at Faster and More Intense:

Star Wars Spotlights is a podcast where we hear from the many different people working to make the galaxy far far away a better place. This time on spotlights we talked to Eric Berry, who is the owner of Hole in the Ground Productions. We also talked to Paul Lindberg, who heads up Cloud City Holonet. Finally, we talked with Omar Meshar, who started Now I Am the Master.
