Last year was pretty sweet - I'm in again.

As long as you have the ad with you, you should be able to just show it to them and get the adjustment. I used it once in a Lawn & Garden checkout, and once at a 20 items or less at the front of the store. No problems. You just have to specifically show the price listed in the ad.
Irony is that I've had more trouble getting the people that work at the store the actual ad is for, to do anything for me. KM sucks.
Anybody out there (who hasnt already got perverted things in their head) got any clue about what figures may exist in 3 3/4" scale that have naked legs that are jointed at the knees?
I am making myself a template figure and it needs to be pretty much naked. I have the EU Anakin with blue tatoos for the torso. I believe i have the VOTC luke (tatooine) arms at home. A naked crotch is easy to come by. I just need a pair of legs that have no clothing on them.
Then i'm gonna need a naked woman as well, but I am working on the naked man template figure first.
Cashiers should just alter the price at the register, no need to go to CSR desks... I used it twice tonight and picked up 8 Wave 2 & 3 army builders.
I think the inclusion of R2-D2 is actually pretty important to this set.
Why? I'd rather see a new Ewok or a Rebel Commando given the potential for a different scene.
First, from a pure sales perspective? Han and R2 are going to help sell this set to the casual buyer. Mom's and Dad's who are buying for their kids are going to more readily recognize Han & R2.
As for R2's importance to this setting as a whole? Who was trying to break into the Endor bunker? It was R2 with Han protecting him. That gives the set a sense of story, instead of just "good guys vs bad guys".
We know we're getting more Ewoks next year. Plus the three in the comic packs. As for an Endor Rebel? Do you really think that Hasbro would package a really good Endor Rebel into a battle pack? I don't. I think they would save a new figure like that for the Basic Figure line. They'd probably make more money that way since army builders would be more inclined to buy multiples of a basic figure than multiples of battle packs with figures that aren't as well articulated.
I say Sarlaac but i am not a vehicle guy.
Anyone gonna take this to WM for pricematching by the way? I'm thinking of giving that a whirl tomorrow actually... $4.99 figures are a steal. They should honor that as long as you take the flyer with you. I know one WM near me has like 12 pegs full of good 30AC figures (army builders and such). Lots of Legacy too... May have to go see what I can scoop up there.
