Online. Ebay. Really the only way now.

Hannants – so much cheaper than eBay and Amazon.

Used to get at shows from a couple of traders, but one retired and the other stopped carrying plastic figures.

colkitto11 Sep 2023 1:29 p.m. PST

Online dealers like Drum and Flag. Still miss Harfields.

FLGS or Hobby Lobby (limited selection)

Michigan Toy Soldier carries a great selection. I can obtain a lot locally (Denver Co. Area) at Colpar/Hobbytown USA. These types of figures can usually be obtained thru your model supply wholesaler of you are a hobby store. Many brands also produce hobby kits (Revell, Italaeri, IMEX, Heller, etc.) Ask them to check for you if your FLGS carries plastic model kits.

doubleones11 Sep 2023 4:07 p.m. PST usually has a huge variety in stock.

e-Bay. I get the best options from e-Bay sellers. I frequently buy direct from makers through e-Bay. Cheers!

That's too bad. Those jerks owe TMP a lot of money. frown

Sometimes local hobby shops, if they still stock them. Otherwise from Hannants or second hand from pals or at bring and buys.
