Also notable is that the regular 4" Battle Packs (087-06-1707) finally popped back up to full price again, effective last Thursday.  They were still sitting at $4.98 on Wednesday everywhere, but come Friday morning they were all back up to $19.99 everywhere again.  Weird.  Guess this means the newer BPs that we saw at C4 are going to start trickling out soon, hopefully.  Oh well, $4.98 was fun while it lasted!

I wish we would have seen those prices around here on the Battle Packs.  Earlier this year I saw some of them on clearance for $9-something (at the time, I think it was Mace's Squad), but otherwise things have been full price.  I don't think our Target actually has any BPs at this time, but hopefully there will be more soon.  I would have liked to get a Tantive pack or two for the Stormtroopers, but the only place in town that has them is TRU - for full price.

I found 5 (Order 66) sets that rang up $0 today.

They gave them to me for $1.24 each.

Rob, did they price check them to come up with $1.24, or did you suggest that price?  I ask, 'cause I've seen a few leftover sets at $0, and just tell the cashiers the final $2.48 clearance price that they were at last week, and that's what they charge me.  But if they somehow went even lower than the 75% off, I'd probably suggest they price check them for me from now on.  I've seen 85% - 90% final clearance prices a couple times in the past, but thought it was just a bizarre circumstance.

I suggested it, $2.48 is the 75% off price, the 90% off price when clearance items really really don't move is completely normal. I see it a lot with holiday stuff.  Thinking that since they were down to $0 they'd gone (in the computer at least) through and past the 90% off price, I told the kid that the lowest they'd have gone was $1.24 (which was me cutting the $2.48 in half - which was actually bad math on my part.  The lowest they'd  have gone for is really $1.02 - I think.

Either way, he checked with his boss and everyone was happy.

Yeah, me too.  I just noticed the sale on Tuesday or Wednesday (I'm not sure when it started), and saw all of those ships for $5.75 (plus some good deals on other lines).  I kind of dislike how TRU is set up, where you can't see if something is "in stock" until you click into each individual listing.  You get excited that you're about to get a deal, only to see the "out of stock" label once you open the page.  I don't know how long these deals were up, or even if it was a mixup, because yesterday the same items were still listen in the "up to 75% off sale" section, but were listed for full prices.  The sale is supposed to go through Sunday, but now I see the "75% off" page has been changed and doesn't seem to include these things anymore.  Oh well, its not like I needed any of those things, but I would have probably picked up 1 or 2 of those ships I skipped (Tiin's fighter, Grievous wheelbike/AAT/Hailfire) for $5.75.  Plus, I would have definitely picked up that 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime for $22.50 :).

I sure wish I'd caught that one too - I've been passing on all the vehicles lately and would have loved to get them all for $6 each...

I missed out too.  I think by the time it was mentioned, most everything good was already gone.

I used two of the coupons this weekend at TRU to pick up a 21st Cent. Toys halftrack they got in, 2 military figures, a Galactic Marine, an Airborne Trooper, and a Stormtrooper.  Every little bit helps I figure, so some army building for $6 a figure instead of $7 is a big help.

What coupons?

There's actually a new coupon on the TRU main page. It's more or less in the middle of the page, 20% off any single item from 8/12-8/18.

I sure hope the TIE interceptor shows up before the 18th.

Cool! Thanks for the tip. I wouldn't have known about this sale otherwise!

I hope I can spend it on the Interceptor.
