ST.COM IS PROUD
TO PRESENT WHITE WIZARD TOYS!
the Holiday season in full swing our Dewback Patrol led us to a
grand opening sale at
White Wizard Toys in Schaumburg, IL. A major snowstorm had
crippled the Chicagoland area in the forty-eight hours before the
storm and the end result was six to eight inches with an inch of
solid ice underneath for good measure. I packed up my Sandtrooper
gear and took my chances on the highway. White Wizard Toys is an
online store that has taken the collecting experience to a different
level. How many times have you wanted to physically examine the
piece you are about to add to your collection? While many people
seemed to be taken back at some of the prices, I think having a
store front as well as a e-store is very advantageous.
seen there was quite a bit of walk-by traffic on some of the brief
strolls that we made throughout the day. I was proud to be one of
the five members of the
Midwest Garrison that were on hand to also assist with the
festivities. The weather was so cold that even seeing people dressed
as Star Wars characters didn’t seem to faze them. The people who did
stop in were pretty impressed with the overall layout of the store.
White Wizard also has quite a selection of different collectibles
and you might find more than just Star Wars that grabs your
attention. James Bond, Battlestar Galactica, and G.I. Joe were some
of the lines I saw people gravitating towards. There was a drawing
later in the day for a Kotobukiya Sandtrooper for anyone who signed
up during the day.
Later that night I learned TK737 was lucky enough to walk away with
the prize. I thought it was pretty funny a TK walked away with the
prize; furthering whatever temptation he may have to learn to play
dirty! Overall I was pretty impressed with the layout, selection and
overall friendly service that White Wizard Toys had to offer. Even
though the Grand Opening sale is over, I’d still advise anyone in
the area to drop by and at the very least have a look around.
