st Sandtroopers 16th Anniversary: Light the Candles!

Yesterday at 01:02:39 PM by Darth Spice
We are going to light things up with our first phase of our 16th anniversary celebration.  Last year this Rey figure generated quite a stir of controversy when it showed up at retail a little early!  Since then the figure has been a rough find in stores, so thanks to our friends at Hasbro we will be giving away 16 Rey figures to do our part in giving back to the fans.  How do you enter?  Simply comment on this thread with your favorite moment from our 16 years online.  It could be a new photo, event we covered, YouTube video or maybe even a simple news post.  We will begin selecting winners at random starting this weekend, so please help us Make Collecting Great Again!

For those of you looking to purchase the Kylo Ren, Obi-Wan Kenobi or Jyn Erso 6-inch exclusives, Hasbro has announced the on sale date of August 9th for those of you who have a day to waste and a fully-functioning F5 key on your computer. There are no wait lists, reservations or coupons for these products.  We can only hope Hasbro has put aside an acceptable amount but if we can go off the performance of years past, there is not much hope!

July 23, 2016, 08:40:33 AM by Darth Spice
Today is our 16th Anniversary and we are blown away to reach this milestone.  We understand the last few years have not been as explosive as some of the others.  Collecting has been in a lull since the Vintage Collection ended and we feel the time for silence has long past.  We are looking forward to all of you Troopers joining our new campaign.  United We Find has been our slogan the majority of our time online.  Times change, people change and we have to move forward with these events.  Stay tuned over the next several weeks as we plan to Make Collecting Great Again!
