OTC Sales and Clearances!
« on: January 12, 2005, 10:11 PM »
I know that Walmarts around the land are supposedly having quite a few OTC figures for $3 each - anyone lucking out on these and scoring big?

So far I did run into a Walmart that had a few - bought the following figures for that price for army-building and custom fodder -

StormtrooperX1
Scout Trooper X3
Lobt X2
Bespin Leia X1

I was hoping to find some more Walmarts in my area with these, but nobody seems to have them... anyone having luck?  Or anyone want to help a Wookiee out if they have a Wally World in their area with a surplus of these?

 :P

I've got Madines and Bespin Leias here for $3 each.

I found an assload of Madines, Dignitary #2, and Achk Meds for $1.18 each at Target, too.

I was lucky enough to stumble on a Bespin Luke for three bucks just after Christmas.

I've seen a few OTC Generals and Bespin Leias at Target, but the WalMart figures sold out quick, leaving only some VOTC Han and Bens for seven bucks. I'll wait to see if they come down a little more, then I'll finally nab a Ben for a decent price.

Not a TON of great stuff left here...  Army builders are all gone it seems.

I see no CCP's anymore, etc...  :(  VOTC's down to pretty much just ANH wave leavins, and the Han's are moving now better than the others (Leia still goes though).

I'd love finding a bunch of the Han AT-ST.  I swapped parts around and while you wind up with 50% loss on figures, you can make some great Techs/Troopers if you've got the random generic heads to use with them, and you lose that lame-o left arm that the Han AT-St has.

You get more of a "Imperial Officer" pose then...  And a bunch of generic parts that'll be useable later on I'm sure. :)

I have been hearing that alot of the Walmarts have again lowered the price on the OTC figures from $3.00 to $2.00!

I saw some red tagged at $2.00 last night at my local Walmart! Sadly all that was there were Lobot's and Lando's!... >:(

I've seen plenty of WMs with their OTC at $3.00, but they're almost universally the Endor Generals wave. I did manage a CCP from one a week or so ago, but that's been the only highlight.

Endor Gen's are long gone here.  I wish I was havin' your problem Jared...  Now we're inundated with Vader's mostly, but the Bespin wave (sans CCP) is lingering too...

The Gam Guards, Imperials (any kind), CCP, and any other general army builder (jawas, etc.) are long gone it seems.  I gotta get out tonight or tomorrow to see if new stuff's arriving because I keep hearing of VOTC ROTJ wave resurfacing as well...  I'd take some $5, $7, or (dare I say) $10 stormies still...  At least one.  I would grab a Chewie or two if I saw them  as well since people seem to need him yet.

Hell I'd even take 3PO and R2 openers at this stage...  I'm lamenting opening the only two I was willing to nab at $10 each.

I've bought way too much stuff on ebay lately to take advantage of any good sales - I've tried to not go to any retailers lately if I can avoid it.

Damn you Paypal!!!

in my neck of the woods, Walmart has cleared out of all OTC and VOTC, sans one poor beat up VOTC Lando. Target still has a bunch of OTC Endor General and Bespin wave leftovers at $2.38. The Prequel Post-OTC wave seems to be the mainstay now at stores around me.


Would love to be able to find a VOTC Han for under $5, hint hint hint....  ;D

My local WM still has Lukes, Bens, and Hans, albeit at $7 and I really wouldn't recommend those for a carded collection, as the clamshells are pretty scuffed up.

My nearest did the price drop to $2 OTC and $5 VOTC as well now...  Not a wide selection, and absolutely NO army builders now that I've cleaned them out. :)

They have a separate area with new POTC for their reset too.

Got a couple of decent pieces on sale.  VOTC Stormie for $7.  OTC Cloud Car Pilot and Madine for $3 each.
