I ventured out this morning to my local Fleet Farm to check out their annual Toyland kick off and while I didn’t find anything “new” per se, I did see a nice selection of Deluxe/Class I vehicles, Clone Wars (Wave 2), Movie Heroes (Wave 2) and TVC figures (Wave 4, Rev 1.). Click the images above for some quick snapshots of the aisle.
For collectors in the Midwest, Mills Fleet Farm’s Annual Toyland opens tomorrow at 7am. While their selection of Star Wars merchandise tends to be limited, there are opportunities to find some deals on basic figures, Deluxe/Class I vehicles and Playskool items. Click on through for the Star Wars items featured in this year’s catalog and visit fleetfarm.com to check out their entire catalog.
