I found a Mace vs. Palpy for 9.98, four Target Utapau Shadow Troopers for $6.48, and some odds and ends... I was hoping to find some legos but they don't seem to have been clearanced.

Lego are what I'm hoping gets clearanced more than anything else.  Still need some of the more expensive sets.  I'm really hoping for a Turbo Tank on clearance but it seems that they have all but disappeared around here.  :'(

Good find on those Shadow Troopers. Wish I could find that good of a deal. Mikey I think the Turbo Tank is still on the Target Planogram so I don't know if they went on clearance or not.
I remember my dream now.

Yeah, none of the Lego sets have hit the Target clearance racks yet.  The Turbo Tank is gone even at full retail, suprisingly.  The higher cost sets usually sit.

Definitely not full price.  I'd would like to see it drop to around $50 or so.  I wouldn't worry about it too much, I'm going to keep my eyes open around here (I might get lucky at WM).  If I need any help, I'll let you know.  Thanks.

The wretched clamshell cases finally dropped into reasonable pricing territory last night, and I picked up a bunch of sets for $2.48 each.

I picked up some up today also.

I also got SW Trivia Pursuit for $11 and SW Risk for $5.

Alright, this morning I ran into what I gues was a return of a ton of E3 figures, probably about 40. Over half were Neumodian Warriors and the others were either Zett or the Mon Colamari, all really beat up. They were $1.18 a peice. I left, came back a couple hours latter with the family for regualr shopping, and they were all gone. So my question is, why do people clear out a find like that? To return stuff on valad recipts? Store for latter? Sell for bulk on ebay? It left me scratching my head.

I'd have wanted teh Zet's and Neimoidians for army building and customs.  The Neimoidians would've been my priority and maybe one Zett...

Well if someone returned them, all they would get (to my knowledge) is the clearance price so it may very well have been figs that were stashed or in the stockroom.

Even with valid recipts? I've talked to several people who were going in the evening to make returns getting full price back and then showing up first thing to re-buy the same items at clearance price.

The only store that's putting a time limit on things right now is TRU I believe...  Target, WM, and K-Mart just require a receipt to get back what you paid, and Wal-Mart may not even require that at ALL stores.  I've returned things with just a sad story about my receipt getting lost and got back full price...  Not that I got them on sale to rip them off of course, I just didn't have a receipt for something I am sure I couldn't afford and didn't need so I wanted the $ back.

In my area those Target bastards only give back the clearance rate regardless of when you purchased...EVEN WITH A RECEIPT!

All other retailers in my area give back full sale with tax with receipt and was returned within 90 days of purchase.

So far different than your experience Jesse.
