Basic figures (not counting exclusives) are going to hit the $10 mark soon!  :(  They're like oil prices; they just keep going up.

This has probably been discussed, but the locals are saying they found $7.57 prices for basic figures at our local Targets - presumably it is the new sticker for 2008 product.

I've seen this tested since Sith at the same two stores. They always went back to regular Target price eventually.

Is 'pony10' the only active HTS code?

In my region figures at WM had been down a buck but they're back up as of now...  At least the nearby WM is which was the $5.88 price up till this week.  I think others maybe went up a couple weeks ago earlier in the month.

Yeah, all my WM's went back up to 6.63 as well. One of the WM's put the SW figs on clearance for that price. :P

My WM wanted to sell me the '08 figs for $7.99. Since the figs weren't in the computer, they were convinced that $6.63 was the clearance price since all SW figures are on clearance for $6.63, a price increase over the previous price of $5.88.

That's not good! $7.99 is way too high especially with no coin. So what happened did you get them to sell them to you for $6.63?

Well I had a probelm getting my 08 figures, 1 (I can't remember which) rang up at $5.88, a few $6.63 and the rest not at all. It was kind of a big deal for them to figure out to just scan one of the other figures for the ones that didn't. They ended up picking the $6.63 price.
I remember my dream now.

That sucks. Did you get them for the $6.63 price Anthony?

Yeah, got them at $6.63. There's no danger of an $8 price, I figured the guy was making it up or had no clue. I wound up talking to a Manager yesterday and she explained that it's a mess in the toy section right now, that SW fig on clearance are a mistake and that normal retail is $6.63.

Does anyone know of a Hasbro code that is still active?  I want to fill up on some Galactic Heroes that I passed on in the stores and any bit helps.

  Not sure if this is the right spot for this but I saw it in Sundays paper:
    HasbroPlayRewards.com
Save $5 on $15-25
        $12 on $36-50
        $25 on $76-100
        $50 on $151 or more
Feb. 1 thru March 23... you need the store receipt but doesn't look like you need to cut the POP for all the non-openers.

I think JJ posted that on the front page. It's a cool promotion, pretty much free stuff for my receipts which is an idea I really like.  ;D

Well, my local Wal-Mart raised comic packs to $10.88, the $9.88 days are over! I was surprised to see Target has Saga legends for $5.64 each. I picked up some EP2 clones to fill my AT-TE's.

I think it because WM, unlike Target, each figure has their own "code' if you look at your receipt from WM each figure is listed by name. They do this so us tricky collectors do not return figures that we did not buy from them. Like last year with the gold coin UGH I did not want the silver coined figures I had already bought  so I returned them once I got the gold coins.
