I don't think you'll see much of a clearance on figures. Maybe Force Battlers, Attactix, and some vehicles.
I'm holding out for Obi-Wan's starfighter and I'd like to score a Mustafar playset for less than $15.
I dunno about that right now ruiner... I'd have agreed maybe a month ago, but man in just the past two weeks (around the DVD launch) I'm seeing TONS of ****. And this time it's not flying off shelves nor does it have an immediate reason to do so (IE: The movie causing a massive influx of interest like happened to all the 4/2 figures).
The DVD's come and gone... People are buying, but the rate they're buying at is diminished, and when figures like Clones aren't even flying out the door I think there's diminished interest enough that many things have the ability to pegwarm... Namely the surprises that didn't pegwarm from the 4/2 blitz.
Chewie's, spinning Obi-Wan's, Vaders... And the oddball background people will definitely sit if shipped heavily... Yoda's not moving (either version), the Deluxe are definitely backing up (ones that were really hard to find for a while too like Vader w/table, and the Crab Droid).
I think there's potential clogging going on here right now... Of course, the way this year's gone and things, I could go to the same stores next week and I really shouldn't be surprised to see all the Bly's and Grees gone that I saw tonight... There's a TON though.
Certain clones still have the "hoard" or "scalper" appeal though and that's frustrating... 501st and 41st paint decoes are still impossible to find... The final 5 figs in general are just not making it out there in my area.
Weird stuff this year... Really I can't think of anything similar in all 10 years of the modern line.
