I may have missed out on a lot of clearance figs I really wanted (Mas Amedda, Ki Adi Mundi, etc.) but tonight I scored the clearance coup de grace at WM:

EB set for ONE DOLLAR.

 ;D

Wow, that's pretty good. I got 2 for a $5 each back in June when they first started clearancing them. I saw almost nothing on clearance after Christmas, I saw a few Palpys, a pack of Collector cases, and one of those Battle Arenas. Pretty lame, I wanted another TIE, some of the Unleashed, and some cheap vehicles. :-\

Yeah, I waited on a lot of stuff and got burned.  I never got these figs:

Shaak Ti
C-3P0 (my own fault, I passed on him when I had the chance)
Palpatine #14
Ki Adi Mundi
Aalya Secura
Mas Amedda
Ask Aak
Holo Plo Koon
Wookie Heavy Gunner
Stass Allie w/ speeder bike
Deluxe Palpatine/Sidious switcheroo

And the Obi Wan starfighter.  Sigh.

I went to TRU tonight to check out the 4.99 sale. They had ROTS figures in megabuy two packs for 8.97 each- including 2 packs like Wookie Heavy gunner and Kit fisto, Tarkin and 65 Tactical ops trooper, C3PO and Tact Ops trooper, and many others.
Might be worth trying to fill in some holes at that rate--

Hey Spuffy, a bit late on my part, but if you haven't gotten Obi-Wans fighter yet, they're still shipping. Check your local Target, check your Target!!! :P

Yeah, there's a couple at my Target.  I was hoping to nab it on clearance, but alas it seems I will have plenty of time this year to pick it up once I have more pennies.   :)

Target can't seem to get rid of their deluxe vehicles, like Grievous' wheel bike and jedi starfighter. :(

Thats because they're still on the planogram. Walmart was the one clerancing them out.
I remember my dream now.

Yeah I found an aisle full of the $20 pricepoint vehicles one night at Wal-Mart.  Just tons of stuff dumped there, and got two JSF's for on the cheap.  I should've bought the wheelbike despite its inaccuracies, as clearance isn't usually a bad price for anything.

The Target stores near me blew stuff out fast...  WM's the only place with lingering bits and pieces.  Mostly deluxe is what i see for $5.  Funny how sought after that Vader w/Med Table was and now that's almost all I see.  :)
