I think I read on scum that Target is having a 10% off SW sale durring the week of 3/25. That'll be something.

That may explain why at least one of my local Targets has 100+ cases of TAC figs in the back...I'm happy enough to have gotten mine early though and it's not that hard to take your receipt back to get a refund on the price difference.  Bring on wave 2!!

The same R2's hanging at my nearby KM...  I'm gonna go on a limb and say he's an early peg warmer. :)  Sure it's way early to label him that, but everything else is going otu the door and R2's chilling so I'm gonna at least give him that title tentatively.

It's pretty easy to predict this **** at this point...  Any figure could become "rare" if he is shipped hardly at all, while almost any figure can become a pegwarmer if he ships too much, but there's figures like Obi-Wan and R2 that you just know are gonna get there at some point. ;)

Forgot to mention that one of my WM's put the new Unleashed figures on clearance already for $11.

Barely worth that much.  God knows they weren't going anywhere for $19.96.

Get this we get a new Target and the price on the basic figure is $7.64! I want to tell the mamager but im nervous he is going to call the other store managers in the area and they will raise their prices.

That's often the case Ice. Except for last year ('06) when this happened, they usually lowered the price after about two months though. And don't worry, they're not going to talk to the other stores. ;)

While the only Target I've gotten TAC stuff at was $6.99, the SAGA2 stuff still varies in price from store to store in my area.  I think most are $6.84, but one store is $5.84 (or something give or take a nickel from that price).  Another is $6.24 I believe.  Weird.

This week at Toys R Us, you can get a free $5 gift card with any Star Wars purchase of $20 or more.  Sounds like the perfect time to visit TRU to hunt for the new 30th Anniversary Collection toys!

At least they honor recent purchases.  I bought an AT-AT on Friday (OCD) and I totally feel like I got raped, but hey at least I have a $5 gift card now....  ::)

Thank god.  Time to pick up some Felucia Clone army builders I guess. :)

****** timing for this though...  I've got a lot going on the last week of March it seems and don't want to free up cash for random stuff like this on TOP of the TAC blitz.

For those who haven't seen it yet, Target has some 30AC stuff on clearance already...

Most stores have a clearance price of 30% off the Vader with Coin Folder ($6.98) and the Battle Packs ($13.98) but a few places, including my local Target, have them down to 50% off already ($4.98 for Vader, $9.98 for the Battle Packs).

It was great to be able to grab two more Tantive IV Battle Packs at $10 each.   ;D
