Lookit What I Got For $3.05 (Tax Included!)!
« Reply #30 on: February 22, 2006, 07:37 PM »
I was in the RT 4 TRU this evening after work looking for the new BBI Weapons Sets (of course they were nowhere to be found, strike 1 :( ) I decided to check out the Star Wars figures to see if the Geonosis wave has been released here in NJ yet (of course it wasn't, strike 2 :( ). Nestled in the middle of a bunch of Galactic Heroes transforming vehicles and Force Battlers was a shelf tag that read $.48 and right above the tag were these guys:



I experimentally took one to the scanner and sure enough- $.48 (Home Run! :) )!

I grabbed all six of them, checked up and down the display for any more that might be hidden (no more :( ) and walked to the register.

My total:

18 action figures
6 diorama bases
6 floor extenders
12 Jedi Council chairs
------------------------
$3.05 (tax included!)

Between these guys and the buttload of Ninja Battles I scored for $.98 each at the same TRU alittle over a week ago, I'm having the best clearance toy month ever! :D

And I though $3 each for the first of the Council scenes was good. :o

Yeah I keep hoping to find council sets for cheap so I can get a full circle of seats.  It's all I want honestly...  The figures are ok fodder though, but around here the sets haven't even budged in price.  :(

That was a great sale from last year, with stuff like $4 OTC vehicles and 12" figures. I got a 12" Luke from that sale.  ;D

Wow!  What a great find!

My TRU still has them at full price (can you believe it?) and it's the last one I need to complete my set.

I guess someday they'll mark them down.

Today I scored another Home Run at the same TRU! I got ANOTHER 6 Jedi Council packs for $.48 EACH!!!!!!!

Combined with the ones I got that started this thread and the 6 I picked up 2 weeks ago, I now have 18 of these sets for a combined total of $9.15!!!!!!!

I already had the 2 original sets from the Saga line from 2002 so I now have 20 of these bases, just enough for my Super Secret Custom Project!

Plus now I have an additional 36 Jedi Council chairs for my eventual dioramas :)

I just love the super clearances from TRU :D

P.S.- anyone interested in a bunch of Agan Kolars, Stass Allies, or Shaak Tis? ;)

I may be interested in one of each if you need to get rid of them Spectre, the sets were something I never got all of actually.  The parts would be helpful extras I think.
