Wal-Mart gave me a deal today, 3x orange clones, 2x DSGs and a Scorch for 2 bucks apiece!  Don't know if a local thing or what, but made my day. ;D

I stopped by Target today and saw a few Titanium Ultra Vader's TIE and a Millenium Falcon.  I remembered seeing earlier ships discounted to clearance but these didn't have any orange tags on them.  Brought them to a self price scanner: $4.98 each!!  The small Titanium ships were actually a few cents more than these!

I was just looking at the Black Friday flyers again.  The Kay B Toys promo on action figures EXCLUDES Star Wars figures (at least in my area).

The walmart in my area honored the "buy one get one free" basic figure ad from k-mart.  :)

I noticed that Target has lowered the price of the GH figures to the same price as basic figures.

The Snowspeeder and Kit Fisto Starfighter are starting to hit clearance at Target. $20.98 and $13.98 respectively.

Yeah, I ran into these last night and picked up two Snowspeeders.  If you can find them, $21 is a good price for these.  There were only 4 at my Target.  There are approximately 20 Kit Fisto Starfighters on the shelves however, so I'm going to hold out until possibly the next round of price reductions.

I saw about 10 pregnant Padmes at Target for 3.32.

I found some basic figures including an Utapau Clone for $3 at Wal-Mart, Titanium Bossks (silver & regular) for $4.24 each at Target, a mini-Unleashed Kashyyyk 10pk for $9.98 at Target, and, of course, plenty of 50% off ornaments.

That's about all I saw around, but I know a guy who shops around specifically during clearance time to pick up anything for later sales and probably bought them all up (since they're all gone.) He has a warehouse that he just throws the stuff in and than pulls it out 10 years later to sell. I'm sure he's going to be most disappointed with POTF2.

My area isn't clearancing much...  Target has some stuff here and there, but not much was "left" to get clearanced this year...  Wm's around me are really hesitant to do heavy duty discounting on Star Wars anymore.  Last time I saw anything of note was the end of '05 they had some reasonably cheap Deluxe and then clearanced a small ammount of basic figures for $3 that got restocked with the cases that had the Twins sets in them...  Not a whole lot though beyond that.

I was at a local Wally tonight and they had stacks of Tin sets from the OT and Cantina in the clearance aisle, but full price.  They have had remnants of the same VTSC figures on clearance for a whopping $.03 off for $9.96.  ::)  It was one of the few WM's in the area that actually GOT VTSC in though at all.  most around me never did.

The tins are full price though, but there's enough of them I expect a clearance at some point...  I just hope I'm around to jump on it when it happens because I wouldn't mind either an ANH or ROTJ set extra for a good price.
