I started seeing them on clearance for $3 and $4 at K-Mart and other stores like that, around 1997 and 1998, to make room on the shelves for the release of all the EPI merchandise. Needless to say I snapped those clearance figures up in bunches, and then filled in the gaps in my collection through EBay. It was definitely fun running around to all the local department stores, trying to complete my collection.
I have to say that getting in around 1997-1998 had 1 main drawback, I missed out on the majority of the Orange Card figures, which I think started around 1995, and were mostly gone by 1997-1998 in my area (I live in Southern NJ)
