Keep an eye out then, the ones by me are down to $5.98 - as of the other day they had everything other than the Snowtrooper.

Ours are the same, and I usually seen everyone but the Snowtrooper and maybe IG-88.  The other four (particularly Leia) are everywhere.

Got my coins in the mail today, too.  :)

Man, I'd love to get really any of them at that price.  Many Target stores around here cleared out with the first round of clearances and not a single VTAC to be seen.  :-\

They restocked the pegs again, so I did get a Snowtrooper yesterday, but still at 8.69. I'll look again next week and see if they're down further.

Quick question in regards to the coin mailaway promo - do you have to send in six different figure tabs (one each from the six different figures) or can it be any combination of the vintage six?

I wonder if you can send in '06 stickers and get it?  I got some clearance Han's and may try that.

Yes clearance @ $2.98, finally picked up the whole wave- Snowtroops, but I did pick 4 of them up at full price.  Time to go see if they'll give some money back since I hadn't opened them yet and I still have the reciept. 

Digging bossk, I think I might army build him and just switch out some feet for boots, lizard arms for sleeved/gloved arms, and head for helmet. @ 2.98 You can't beat it.

Some of my Targets by-passed half off and went directly to $3. Too bad none of them have stocked a new case in over a month. I'm still short 4 Snowtroopers. :P

I checked our Target this morning hoping to find some clearanced VTSC, but no go.  They did re-set the aisle, but I didn't see anything in the clearance areas from SW.  I didn't really know if I would, they seemed to be nearly sold out at full price last week anyways.  Its too bad though, I definitely would have picked up some extras at $3 or so.  Heck, I'd have gotten some if they had seen the $6-something clearance here.

Het guys, I don't mean to be a downerr, but by waiting for these to go into clearance, you are giving Hasbro the notion that you don't want 10.00 figures.  If that's the point you're trying to make, then I'm all for it.  However, if you really like these figures and the packaging, you should pay full price and send a message of approval.

Target is eating the loss.  They've already paid Hasbro what they asked for.  It's not Hasbro's fault that Target puts everything on clearance a month after its release.  Besides, Target was over-charging for these to begin with.

I kind of agree with iFett on that Mike, but at the same time Hasbro does take note on what's selling and what isn't...  But I also feel it's good to send TARGET a message and not buy there at full price, when they clearly were gouging to get an extra couple $'s out of the collectors on that line.

WM on the other hand is selling through multiple cases at $10, so I think Hasbro's seeing that these sell, and I'm sure they also see that Target shot itself in the foot by jacking up their prices over their competition.  To me this is 100% Target's fault and i don't blame anyone for waiting on them there.

It is odd that Target would mark them all the way down to $3.  Granted they will certainly sell at that price.  But geez from $12 down to $3?  That is a really deep discount for something that has only been out a couple months.  Plus it's lower than the standard $7 they charge for basic figures.  Oh well, can't complain if you find them for that low of a price.
