Went to Fan Expo last night and I was able to find :

General Mcquarrie, Concept snowy, Zev Senesca, one of those tiny $6 Vader Bust ups(the vader I got was different from the one on the packaging...rare varient maybe?) Clone Wars volume 1 graphic novel, some saga ak Med Beq figure and I was able to meet Jeremy Bulloch In which I got a autograph and a picture. Yesterday was tons of fun but once again SW product was harder to comeby then previous years.
School has been on strike all month. so much for the summer job I was hoping to get D:

My local TRU has the singles on clearance for $5.98, so I picked up a clean Sandtrooper.

Wait - you said TRU with SW stuff on clearance? Did I travel back in time to the 1990's?

Not exactly a Purchase, but the WM near me had in the "Clearance" isle, a single clean Sandtrooper w/ White pauldron for the low low, red sticker, clearance price of $7.00 (even). :o

It was regular priced for less than that.....

This is the same store where I picked up a couple of that same figure for like $3. in November.

Does Walmart always jack up the price of discontinued items in their computers so you can return the item for a "profit"?

I could buy that line of thought if the price had been lower than the original retail price.  I'm thinking someone got it for Christmas and returned it, but through some mix up the price on the item had been raised in Big Blue's computers.

Nice find on the Dark Troopers.  He's not much for action, but still a cool figure.

Most 30AC stuff hasn't clearanced anywhere I hsop though Keonobi, so I know if they found backroom stock it'd just go with the other full-priced 30AC stuff in the clearance aisle and blend in with the Juno Eclipses, Sandtroopers and the like.

I keep forgetting Walmart's penchant for stocking full price Moff Jelly-Jar.  (Oh I could squad build too...)  Yeah, I guess if they found something it probably would just get put out.  I'm amazed they could just find something in the stock room, but then again they do have a larger supply chain than most countries, so a palet or two of 30AC sitting in a warehouse in Maine or Idaho shouldn't be overly surprising...
