Managed to do some army building with KayBee's $5.00 per figure sale today.  Scored 3 x Rebel Honor Guards and 2 x Death Star Troopers.

I remember my dream now.

I too landed Order 66 sets for $7 today.  I got a few Marines, few AT-RT's, etc.

And our Target UNLOADED on these...  I'd say at least 3 or so cases worth were at the Target I frequent, and almost all new within the past week.  That store was down to a handful of RT Driver/Obi and Yoda/Spinach Troopers...  really dismal and I expected nothing.  They had many full sets available though, well till I got there anyway.

They're already down to $5 at a couple of the Targets in Mpls.  I was actually heistant to buy them at that price because there's so many left...I'd be shocked if they all sold before there was another price reduction.

Saw a couple switcheroo's of these yesterday.  2 of the Mace sets still had the Mace's and switched out with Ayala on both, and another Sidious set been switched out with, out of all things, a EP 1 Mace Windu.  Weird.

My Target has 3 Order 66 packs left, and the clones have all been ripped out, and replaced with absolutely nothing!

The whole thing kind of floored me. I couldnt believe it. They have been sitting on the shelf for a few days now.

That's pretty crappy.  I wouldn't condone this no matter what, but on $5 clearance toys?  How about if the slacker at fault just gets a minimum wage job instead?  I'm sure you'd spend less time and have more money than it took to repack and return items to cheat Target.  >:(

Speaking of prices, I found the vintage figs at TRU today and they were only $10 vs. Target's $12.  On the flip side, their comic packs are $11 compared to Target's $10.  ???

The people who do the switcheroo returns are the ones who really need to be punched in the throat. Not hard enough to kill them. Just hard enough to make them vomit and never do it again. Kind of a Pavlovian thing: They start to think about swapping figs and they start getting dry heaves.

I guess the figure switching is at least better than the guy who's returning the O66 packs with just one figure in them.   ::)

In a case like that the store employee needs to be hit and returner smacked.

-Edit- Either way, it makes the rest of the collecting community look bad. The other day @ Wal-Mart I saw some of the new Marvel figs with the Blob Build a Figure parts except the packages had been opened & the parts removed.
