My local Hobby Lobby didn't have much for PL models...in fact, the only PL model I'm sure that they have there is the NX-01 (and I'm positive of that because I purchased one of the three they had on the shelves). I also see them needing to clear LOTS of room for the 1/350 E (assuming they get it in...)
Thall10000: According to hobbylobby.com, there's no Hobby Lobby in California period.
I buy from our Hobby Lobby in Pekin, IL whenever they have the PL kits I want. They have good prices, especially when they're having a half-price sale. My immediate problem is that they get some kits, like the 1/1000 TOS Enterprise in, sell out, then don't restock. Some kits, like the D-7, never appeared at all. I've spoken with the WONDERFUL lady that runs the model section, and according to her, what they get is out of her hands. I've tried having them order kits that their sheets say are available, but I haven't received one yet. Those I usually go to Modelers Vault or Doll and Hobby to get.
Yep, Hobby Lobby in Monroe LA. Normally don't hit it until the half price sale. Picked up 2 NX-01's for about $22.00 each. Have yet to find an Invaders UFO or LOTG Snake Scene there yet, tho. And the only figure kits I have seen are the Spiderman and Hulk kits.
I should've waited 2 days before purchasing my NX-01 from Hobby Lobby (purchased it on Friday, and of course their half off sale started Sunday). Of course, I'm broke this week and can't take advantage of this sale to snag the other two NX-01 kits that are on the shelf yet...
