Very Cheap .45 Minis at Tuesday Mornings
« on: August 04, 2006, 05:23:58 PM »
Hey all... I saw a post about this over at RebelScum and I thought I'd mention it here

Tuesday Mornings stores have MR .45 minis in stock for $9.99 and many people have found gold chases there myself included.

Today I bought the following:

Luke ANH
Luke ESB
Vader ROTS
Vader ESB (GOLD!!)
Obi-Wan ROTS

All for a grand total of $54

I live in Tennessee and I know a number of people in California have gotten them as well.
Just a heads up =)

Is this in the toy section there? I happen to have one less than 4 miles from my apartment.

2010...I certainly hope it's better than 2009 was! ::)
10/10/10~Well, so far with my Father's passing away, I'd say that this year was actually worse than 2009, even the fact that I now have a full time job (For now) isn't anywhere near enough to make up for that...so...maybe 2011 will be better? I'm not holding my breath... ::)

Wow this is cool news! I work in a department store RIGHT NEXT to Tuesday Morning!  ;D

I'm definitely walking in there tomorrow and scoping things out.


Edit: I'm moving this to the .45 board... this is news too good not to be noticed.  ;)

Yes. In the toy section...they'll probably have a bunch of MR chronicles of Narnia stuff too.

I went to two of them and both had MR stuff and had gotten in in within the last two days.

Since I live so close to a Tuesday Morning I just couldn't resisting checking on this myself and boy am I glad I did!

I have my mother in law checking at two stores in Ohio for me tomorrow =)

Oh yeah...ask them if they've seen any too as one of the stores I went to had them out on the floor but hadn't even unpacked the box yet...

It is like a thrift store and is called Tuesday Morning b/c they used to only be open on Tuesday mornings about 10 years ago...

(They are open semi-normal hours now though)

See if there is one in your area...

Thanks for moving the post Aayla =)

Thank YOU for sharing this news!  ;) This really excites me because as I said, I work right next door to this store. I'm definitely checking this out tomorrow...  these minis would be a steal at $9.99. I hope mine has some!

Of the two I went to:

One store had about 10 of them (only Vader ESB, Luke ANH, and Vader ROTS)

The other store had almost 30 of them and had all the ones I've bought. I was really hoping I'd run into an Obi-wan gold =(

I have one more store to check tommorrow here though so who knows!

I figure most MR fans are probably not checking these stores so we have a good chance to get some!

I know that Tuesday Morning got a few of the Vintage-style Star Wars action figures from 2004. There were a couple reports of them being found last year, but I never stopped by to check.

To give a report on possible gold minis:

I know at least the following golds have been found at these stores:

Vader ROTS
Vader ESB (one of which I got myself)
Luke ESB

I hope this helps you out Aayla....did you end up having to sell most of your minis off a while back?

Yes... I ended parting with nearly all of my .45 collection. It was very hard to do, but I needed the money. I did keep three of them... Luke ROTJ, Mace Windu AOTC, Obi-Wan ANH AFBB, and then as a I gift from a wonderful friend I recieved the double-bladed Darth Maul. If I was able to replace them all at $10 apiece, I think that'd be a deal I could not pass up. From what I see it seems like they're mainly getting some of the more recent sabers, which is just fine by me.  :) The ones I see mentioned are actually the ones I want the most.
