It seems that my Walmarts have changed the basic figure price to $5.88, new UPC tags for every peg hook.

The figs I just bought were 5.88.  I figured they were just on sale.

This is interesting...  The new UPC's especially.  I'll maybe stop by a WM here tonight and see if anything similar's going on out my way.

Yeah my Wal-Mart dropped the price on Basic and Legends figures to $5.88, found this out while returning some figs. Also I was at a K-Mart for the first time in forever and they currently have a 10% off sale on all Hasbro Star Wars toys.

As per our front page story, the price reduction at Wal-Mart IS national, so nobody should be surprised now to see $5.88 (thank god) Star Wars figures, at least for a little while. :) 

The price reduction is in Wal-Mart's "Wish Guide" for 2007 Holiday shopping. 

Yay price rollback...  For once that smiling faced bastard did something right.

Basic figures are on sale (a whopping thirty cents cheaper than usual!) for $6.64 at Target in my area.

I was thrilled to see the new price at WM yesterday; an item this small needs to have a "5" in the price!

Just an FYI for anyone ordering from HTS.com.  I placed an order a week ago and did not automatically get the vintage figure.  I placed the order anyway to get the figs before they were gone, but called to request the VTSC fig this week.  I got the run around TWICE, but persistence pays off.  They finally gave me a supervisor who agreed it was a mistake on their end and sent my a Bossk in a seperate package free of charge.  If you didn't get your free fig, it might be worth giving them a call.

As our front page says...

AT-RT is $24.99 starting December 9th (Next Sunday), and "Other Select Star Wars" things are on sale too...  Good time to maybe pick up the AT-RT sets if you're patient on them, and a good chance to maybe get some of the other exclusives at a discount too. 

Good luck, and let there be something new for us to find...  Probably not, but eh. ;)

I already bought my AT-RT.  I know you can return the item to target within 90 days and just buy a new one, but does anyone know how long you have to just bring in the receipt for credit?  I thought it was a purchase within a week or two of the sale price...

TRU Price Hikes!

I noticed at TRU today the Y-wing & Elite Tie were raised yet again to $35.99 up $1 from the second price hike of $34.99. They started out at $29.99! (Glad I paid that when I pre-ordered) and the Geonosian pack was raised to $61.49 from $59.99.

$61.49 does not even make sense! It was already hard to swallow as is. I never picked it up but I have a 20% off coupon and was pondering buying it. Forget it.

FYI - You usually have 30 days to get a sale price from the time you bought it. If that's the case that they all go on sale I want some money back for the ARC's/Tie Bomber.

With Target it's 7 or 14 days to get a price adjustment. Same with WM.
