$4.98!? Holy Schnikes!!! I hope that price hits around here. I'm glad I held off getting those. I had a feeling they'd end up on clearance fairly quick.

288?

Can you fit that many on an endcap?

Yups..36 per shelf x8 shelves = 288  ;)

Even at $6.98 I passed.

I found exactly 288 of these sets today at a single Target marked down to $4.98 on a toy aisle endcap.  Not that I'm complaining, but I just don't understand Target's clearance logic sometimes.   ::)

I didn't see quite as many as iFett did, but I saw a real ****load of 'em at my nearby Target here a couple nights ago...

Just tons of them, seemed like maybe 2 or 3 cases worth, got dumped at once for the $7-ish price.  They had at least 5 or 6 full sets I figure, though after I left I know I pilferred some of their Marines, Airborne, and AT-RT Drivers...  Pretty nice at that price because I can dig the Jedi bits for customs and the like.  Good times.

At $5, I'd be tempted to Army build.

He's not kidding.  The Target by my work has one full endcap of these.  I don't think there were 8 shelves, but they were stacked 2-3 high per shelf, all the way to the back.  They're all $5, so I grabbed about 4-5 of each.  Seems cheap, but 30 of them still cost $150 plus tax.  Anyway, I decided to go check out the Action Figure aisle and found two more clearance endcaps with O-66 on them!  Not full endcaps, but about a full shelf on each.  I was almost tempted to put my $5 ones back in the hopes of getting them evencheaper - I don't know how they're going to get through that many figs even at $5.   :o

I found an entire end cap jammed with these last night for $4.98.  I just decided to try to get a price adjustment on the ones I already bought and get my $30 back.  With the Honor Guard, Death Star Trooper, and Snowtrooper out right now, there are far superior uses for my cash than to army build more clones that weren't in the movies.

Picked up a couple of Palpatine and Mace sets on clearance for about $7 each.  These were available at 2 different Targets I went to today.  I didn't see any of the other sets.

These are flying of the shelves at $7 around here. No one is waiting for $5.

Yeah, they're moving well here too..

Think about it though.  You're likely getting Jedi Robes you wanted for Jedi figures you have already, even with a crap figure, and you're getting Clones...  There's some genuinely good figures in that mix too.  THe Airborne, the shocktrooper commander, the Marine...  Around me, even with dumping whole cases on the shelf where there isn't enough room, they seem like they're moving fast.

Even ones I thought would sit like Spinach Trooper.

$7......$5....... :o

Man... I hope these turn up in the UK. Some of the ROTS Target stuff like the Neyo Trooper did eventually show up in the UK at TRU.

These didn't last around here in Pittsburgh at the full retail price, let alone either discounted price.

Sucks too, cause I would have built up the 501st Airborne, Galactic Marines, and a few Utapau AT-RT drivers.

I'd be happy to pick a few of these up for people at the $5 price...I can't believe how many are still left at the stores near me.   :o
