Disney Galaxy's Edge - Exclusive Black Series Sets

A few weeks ago, before the world shut down, we were in Florida for my daughter's volleyball tournament. With a small break in the action, I jetted over to Disney Hollywood Studios to check out the new Star Wars World - Galaxy's Edge.  It was pretty cool. Love the life size ships and the small details everywhere which is what Star Wars fans will really appreciate.  I was only there for three hours so didn't ride any of the rides. I did manage to pick up two of the three Black Series packs that are only available there.

The first one is Smuggler's Run which includes Rey, Chewbacca, Progs and Hondo Ohnaka. Have plenty of Rey's and Chewie's but no Porgs yet and Hondo is a must have alien.

The second set is the First Order villain set which includes Kylo, Mouse Droid, Commander Pyre from the Star Wars Resistance cartoon and Mountain Trooper. This was a nice set because only Kylo was a repeat.

Toy Exchange - Mt. Airy, Maryland

There seem to be very few vintage toy stores here in the DC area.  Tosche Station is new and I was able to hit that about once a month, usually on a Friday at lunch from work.  Thanks to Toybox, I found out about the Toy Exchange in Mt. Airy, Maryland.

I don't have much chance to visit on weekend due to family commitments so I waited until the right moment at work to scoot out during lunch.

One day, some of my meetings had been canceled so I made the drive. Mind you, it still took an hour there and an hour back and I literally only browsed for 10 minutes. So I definitely need to go back - when we're not under quarantine. So much great stuff and I noticed a lot of larger packaged items behind the counters as I was leaving.
