I was already looking at just a handful of figures I was gonna get, if I can find them. The increase puts some of those in the "not sure" category, such as the deleted scenes bunch.

I'm still down for Evazan, Death Star Trooper and Kithaba. But I'd even try to get them cheaper off ebay if I can.

B-Wings were never that popular, though. Barely in the film they appear in. The TRU ones went on clearance years ago, I'm surprised they made a vintage boxed version.

I wonder how long it will remain empty for before new stuff, or even old restock shows up.

Until December 21, 2012.  :P

Was over in Jackson, MI, Wal-Mart was a bust for any good clearance, but I found Rebel Fleet Trooper there (and at TRU) and finally got one, having only seen it once before IIRC (when I was feeling broke/cheap). (I'm 6 months behind everyone...)

Best likeness of Henry Fonda in 3 3/4" scale.

The ankle belt was a nice idea but doesn't seem to attach solidly enough. Can't quite do the only pose the POTJ Fleet Trooper can do (two-handed shooting pose), probably because they made the vest part of the torso.

It's a good figure, though.  I don't think I'd buy another one at full price, unless they made a new head. Of course, I'm not sure there's anything I'd buy two of at full price anymore.

Finally got a Fett order form,  from online pictures, I noticed the Episode 1 wave doesn't advertize the offer.

I've seen it 4 times and passed it up. Not sure I like the droid fighters enough to get it.

I got Phantom Menace and Empire Strikes Back Blu-ray packs for $12.40 each. The only two figures I already had out of either of them were snowspeeder Luke and Snowtrooper.

Battle droid 2-pack, Snow trooper, Death Star Trooper $3.40 each.

Great thing is 1 out of the 4 wal-marts I went even have the figures marked at the current prices, another had a tag for Legends, but not the other clearance stuff. So a lot more stuff out there since most folks are ignorant to it.

Oh, saw a POTF2 Yoda at one store (one of those returns without a receipt?). For kicks I scanned him...said SEE ASSOCIATE.  :P

My Target stores haven't dropped the price on anything, but my WM's are the same as everyone else...  That's nice.  Anyone seeing any vinty though?  My nearest WM even sold out of the last couple sandtroopers they had left over the holidays (like 1 for each peg) and got in some wave 8 Revenge carded figures, which sold pretty quickly.

One Wal-Mart here still has At-At Commanders and another has Wave 5 remnants. All are still original price.

 :( I saw part of that report already and it makes me glad I'm in the USA and  feel bad that people suffer to make frivilous items for the rest of the world.

The Newt Gingrich comment was unnecessary in the report, though.

I checked walmart today. They have CW figures for $3.60. The only problem is they only have Ki-Adi-Mundi and Dooku. Most everything is half off except the $29 lightsabers and vintage figures which they have none of.

Target has hidden their TaunTauns and landspeeders. Couldn't find them. Figures are not reduced in price but there isn't much left anyway.

Wal-Mart here, CW figures were $3.90 and Legends $3.40, Battle Packs $9.90 and vehicles $12.49, IIRC.

Found 2 Snowtroopers and the hoverboard ARF Trooper.

I like the fact they are gonna overship that Naboo Fighter again. Wave 1, wave 2, Wave 2 revision 1.

And scuba clone is one wave so far.

Of course, the set could be the micro series scuba clone with that 1999-2000 Gungan Scout Sub thingie Obi-Wan came with.  :o

Best Figures: I'll post my list when I actually find all the figures released in 2011. (Never saw Zam Wessel, "Fordo", Echo Base Trooper, Bastila Shan, Wedge and Ponda Boba).

So, I won't be posting any best figures list.  :P Bom Vimdin was nice, though.

Best Vehicles: Didn't buy any...since I don't collect starfighters per se and that Landspeeder was overpriced.

Best Exclusive - Search for Luke Skywalker, which I didn't get yet...they are probably all gone now! Whoops. I got a Battle of Endor pack, but hated the TIE PIlot because his shoulder was so loose I could flick it around in circles.  :-\

Best Multipack - Force Unleashed, for at least having new characters that otherwise would not have been made...finally making the Republic Commandos right better is nice, but they could've gotten right back when but cheaped out on the Scorch mold. The Target 3 -packs were dullsville.

Worst Figure: That I bought, Groucho Marx General Lando second . That I didn't buy: fake Medal Ceremony Han Solo and Escape from Death Star Luke. 

Most Pointless Repack: Commander Gree beats out Super Battle Droid by having no changes. ROTJ Boba Fett comes in third, while another reissue of VOTC Fett, it would be foolish of them not to milk all the money they can out of Snake-Eyes  Batman Boba fans. Keyan Farlander has minor changes, but they could've done more...make him blonde. Not accurate? Heck, the character isn't canon! And neither of those rebel commandos are onscreen actors, either.

Best Repack: Legends Spacetrooper, the last non-vintage carded repack nod fans will get for who knows how long...

If by "take notes" you mean, charge a reasonable price for larger vehicles, then yeah.

 :D Sounds like an EU creation...since at least half of Star Wars aliens are anthropomorphic Earth animals.

Best Vehicle: They did a vehicle?

Jedi Turbo Speeder, Republic Shuttle,  AV-7 Heavy Artillery Cannon, Mandalorian Gunship (if you ordered it online!),  Remote Control Hailfire Droid (technically a droid), Droid Gunship (or was that year?). Can't remember when the Swamp Speeder was released, it never seemed to be around much in stores...actually most of the new vehicles didn't.

Or were you being sarcastic? Oh, well.

I can't see any video game vehicles being made.

We all know the big vehicle next year is the Gungan Bongo Sub.  :P

I'm thinking that Lego is the real Star Wars product that young kids are into, and the action figure line is fading. Hasbro can't do jack about that, except put some of their kiddie efforts Jedi Force and hope to glom off some of that Fisher Price business.

And well, invest in their other lines.
