Default 5 Below

Okay, I am floored by this post over at the Stank:

http://www.hisstank.com/forum/attach...4-img_1149.jpg

4 dollars each?

Wow, that is a Cobra black mask Trooper with silver foil card as well!

Anyone have any luck with these, and any to share for a decent price?

Stories, stories for those of us nowhere near 5 Below?

Is this an east coast thing?

I really need to unload my 25th collection, I saw it towering over me in Storage a few weeks back and felt shamed.

Evidently they are a chain exclusive to the midwest and northeast, with a few stores in NC, WV and Virginia.

Fascinating stuff.

25th Foil card figures for 4 dollars a piece!!!

I could see getting some of these for MOCs to put away... I always wondered if they'd make it over there... Guess I'll swing by there after work...

So I went by my local store and found the following figures marked at $4 or $5 (why they had different prices I do not know): Airborne (bought him), Eel (bought him), Snow Serpent, Barbecue, Pilot Scarlett, Matt Tracker, Mini Skier Zartan, Black Storm Shadow, Bazooka and Paraviper (those are all the ones I remember, at least). So they pretty much have the same cases that have showed up at Big Lots and Family Dollar (nothing with foil cards). I did not see any Cobra Troopers or RPG Troopers. I'll run by there from time to time to see if they have anything new.

Brave wants black mask troopers. Any other requests to be on the look out for?

Found a foil Beachhead. I asked the guy behind the counter if they had more and he told me "some ebay guy came in and bought them all".


Nice.
