I got a lone Polis Massan at Target for $2.38, and a Lava Reflection Obi Wan for the same price, since he wouldn't scan and the cashier was paying even less attention than I was (he scanned on the price checker thing as $3.24, which is the only reason I picked him up anyways.)

It's been a weird clearance season for me. Not only was there nothing really for me to look for to get to the store, but there wans't much in the way of product on the shelves anyway. Almost all of the stores near me were bare. I did manage to pick up a Plo Koon fighter and TIE fighter on clearance though.

All of the EIII figures are ringing up $4.00 at my Walmarts.  It's mostly a ton of Darth Vader, Mas Amedda, Polis Massan, but there are a few Shock Troops and Super Articulated Clone #41 mixed in there as well.  I have seen no EIII figures left at any of my 4 Targets.
If you vote for me all of your wildest dreams will come true.  Thank you.

I haven`t seen any new figs at Walmart near me since about a week or two
before Xmas. No clearance for me!
Target was bare until the other day. They stocked at some point (Tarkin, Ask Akk(sp?), preggo padme, 3po etc...) at the lovely new price.
They have a ton of the cases on clearance and a few odds and ends, but no
figures or vehicles that I could find  :-[

Walmart has been pretty dead in my neck of the woods too, though I recently picked up an Anakin Unleashed on for $11.  It was mixed in with about a dozen Asajj's for the same price.

Like others have mentioned I've seen ROTS basic figurs at Target for $2.38, and had the good fortune to pick up 3 Tac Ops. figures at that price.  I've also seen the $28 Tie Fighters there.  I have not seen any Lava figures or Shadow Troopers on clearance in my area.

Hey Kevin, it was a Target in Amherst, NY, but the last time I went there they'd been pretty much cleaned out.  I went in last Friday and saw the Tac Ops. plus other figures that had been pretty rare in my area--Dooku, Plo Koon, Padme, Shaak Ti and a few others.  I went back the very next day and only Shaak Ti and Aayla remained on the pegs!

Very cool. You should post these in the Store Reports Section, to help other NY collectors out. :)

There really isn't much to clearance around here either.  Wal-Mart had their remaining ROTS figs for $4 a little over a week ago, but those dried up quickly.  Not a single basic figure to be found at any of our Wal-Marts or Targets, and our TRU (surprisingly) only has a handful of Mon Mothmas and Mas Ameddas.  Other than that, the only SW items I've seen on clearance are those Target figure cases, which they still have plenty of.

I finally picked up an Exploding Grievous for the $2.38 or so price, just in the spirit of buying things on clearance.

I wonder is Target going to clearance the ships? I stashed Obi's and Ani's jedi fighters for later so I could get them clearanced IF that's ever going to happen.

Damn! Why can't the Clone sets be that cheap?
