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.

YYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

That's ******* awesome! I'm heading to Target right now to see if I can score some Geonosis goodness.

Often times they will not price adjust unless the item is actually on sale in the weekly ad.  I have had a few Targets that will do it, but most say no.  Best you can do is try your local Target and see.

Or, if you really need to save the cash and don't care about bad karma, just go into the Target store and buy a bunch of figures at the new price and then return them with the old reciepts.  You don't even have to leave the store, just head from the check-out right to the customer service desk.  I know folks have done that as the "loop-hole" to sale adjustments...

I went to get my receipts price adjusted today and the lady wouldn't do the ones that were over 14 days old. Which is odd because I have gone to same one and had them do it before with no time restraints.  ???

I noticed our Target has lowered the basic price to $5.89 now.  That's a lot better than that $6.99 nonsense.  Unfortunately, not too much there.  There's been Derlin, Veers, and Rieekan clogging up the pegs for about a month now.

It's funny that we all know the industry well enough that we knew Target would eventually lower the price.

My closest is down to the low, low price of $6.49. They're insane crazy about cutbacks! Somebody stop 'em!

Not a price cut, but a reversal.

I've received a few e-mails from JD readers saying that their local Wal-Mart has... raised the prices?  Reports are anywhere from $6.48 to $6.88 instead of the old $5.88 price. ???

That would actually be pretty funny.  Target sticks it out at $7 per figure for 2 months, finally lowers the price to $5.89 to compete with Wal-Mart and now Wal-Mart is going to go the other way and raise prices?   :P

Anyone noticed a price increase at their local Wal-Mart?

Went to a Walmart here in SoCal (Pomona to be exact) and the price was 6.63.

I picked up AT-AT Drivers at two different Walmarts in Central CA on Sunday evening at $5.88. And I still consider that pricey.

Wal-Mart still has $5.88 price tags, but never have any figures, so it would be pointless for them to raise prices around here.
