Great, now I just have to find a local TRU that actually has more than just Derlin and Bib Fortuna...  :P

Man, I was hoping that was us having that sale.  Hit your TRUs boys.  You might get lucky.

The original story did say "the sale will start on the 19th" so I hope that isn't the case.

I'm sure you are either way, 'cause people who keep recipts are going to do some major returning to Target I'm sure. ;)

I wonder if TRU is going to notice that they move a lot more product with a lower price? I checked out two stores today and people seem to be picking them up for $5 a peice and they would definately be getting more of my business if prices stayed down there.

Sorry for the tripple post, but this deserves a bump.

I was pleasantly surprised to walk into Target today and see that the basic figures were lowered to $5.89. ;D

That extra dollar sure goes a long way.  I was stocked to see the same this morning.  I never saw a 2 for 1 sale during ROTS but I would not mind one now.

same for me saw $5.89 at target  :o.  too bad there was nothing on the pegs.  hopefully the price stays at this point, because not much point on a sale if there's nothing to buy.

We've had a few reports in the MN section of some Target stores dropping the price, glad to see it's a chain-wide thing.

I think we all hoped/expected that Target would come down in price after a month or two (since that is the way it went for both OTC and RotS - Target started high and price droped after a month or two to complete with Wal-Mart).

Hope it stays at $6 for a while with an occasional $5 sale here and there...  ;)

I don't know if this is old news or new news, and I didn't see anyone report this, but I went to my local Target yesterday, and the price of the Star Wars SAGA 2 figures to $5.89. I don't know if this is a nation-wide, or if this is permanent or temporary, but you may want to check your local Target if you want to pick up the repaint or pegwarmer you've been holding off on because of the $6.99 price point.
