Didn't know if this should go in the Mission Log Section or this one, so if its in the wrong section, Mods please move it. 

During my weeking toy run, I stopped by a couple of Targets.  And at one of them I found the new Star Wars Vintage Figures and the Skirmish in the Senate Battle Pack on Clearance.   The VTSC figures were 8 bucks and the Battle Pack was 13 bucks.  Needless to say I picked up a few of each.  :)

I moved ya in here Phalanx, since this is where we're keeping all the price fluctuation stuff.

Good score, especially on the battlepack.  I'd nab some Sandpeople on the cheap at that $8 price too I think, though that's not as good a cut as the battlepack.  $13 for the set is pretty great really when you can unload the Senate POds if you don't want them fairly easily for a fair price.

According to a report by Yodafan2, Our local targets have VTSC for 15% off. Thats great. Gone from 11.99 to like 10 bucks or something, its great. I'm definately gonna hit up my target this week.

I saw some of the clearances last night locally and they weren't spectacular.  VTSC down $1 about, Demise of Grievous was about the same, and the Senate packs were only down about $3.

Not sure where to put this, but I thought this might be the best spot since they have TSC items available.

How about 50% off for all the people who couldn't get through their lame-ass system this morning.

(Thanks for sharing that though).

Apparently Target pulled a toy section wide clearance yesterday, and from all the reports around here, toy hounds were filling up multiple carts of all lines. VTSC dissappeared along with Demise of General G for around the 3.98 price. They didn't drop all the prices at once, so while the Skirmish Battle Packs scanned for 13.98 at midday, I was able to score 4 for $4.98 by late afternoon.

I picked up a couple of skirmish packs for $4.98 as well.  Awesome price.

I'm rolling past Target tomorrow but due to it being near the show I'm going to, I doubt anything is left.  I'm sure I'll see these packs with the clearance stickers on them at the show for twice what their original retail was...

There's always a handful of dealers there who seem to have the same business sense as the kid who ate paste in school.

I had been haunting two targets all week, waiting for them to drop from 30% to 50% off. Then BANG! They hit 75% off and move faster than a scalded dog. I'm hoping to find a local JD'er with a cheap DOGG, and Matt (aka Jedimoses) hooked a number of us Minnesota types up with 7.50 Skirmish packs.
Target can be a pain at times, but they don't let crap linger like TRU and Wally.

I must have missed the clearances at our store as well.  I was there on Wednesday, and they were just starting to reset (the main toy aisles hadn't been touched yet, and the VTSC/DOGG/SITS were all priced pretty much full still).  I went back on Friday, and there was a lone Grievous figure for $3.24.  I was really hoping I could pick up some VTSC extras for cheap, I held off on getting an extra Greedo for just that reason.  I would have grabbed some of the others too if they were available.  I guess our WM still has TONS of them at full price if I really need more.  Kind of nice to see the reset though, Target really seems to have a good amount of space dedicated to Star Wars.

TRU has a 20% off red tag sale and they lowered a few things.  The gobs of Lando are now 4.98, the 12" ROTS figs are 12.98 and the Saga DVD Trivial Pursuit is 19.98.  They also lowered the kiddie lines but I do not recall.
