I'll bet a rainbow colored clone that we see these 6 clones on individual cards at some point down the road.

I ended up picking up the Anakin/Airborne trooper pack this weekend, and we had quite a few of them on the shelves at our local store as well.  They basically just dumped them all on the shelf below the basic figure pegs.  Its funny, when they were at the front of the store, they sold out and were gone for a week or so, then all of a sudden there was a huge pile of them in the action figure aisle.  If they hit the $5 mark here, I might pick up some more, but we'll see.  The funny thing is, the only one I didn't see a single pack of was the Yoda/Camo Clone one, which also sold out first when they were at the front of the store here.  That wouldn't have been the one I would have guessed to sell well.

I think the Yoda makes it a more likely candidate for the kiddies- that and Darth. The other 4 sets all have a middle aged to elderly gentleman in the mix, lowering the kid appeal.

A Target near me was unpacking these directly from the box, placing $6.98 stickers on them, and putting them on a clearance shelf.

This Target never had the front endcap of them like some other Targets.

I think this happened a lot.  I know of at least two stores where I never saw these on the front lanes.  I assumed they came and sold out too quickly, but now I think its more likely that they estimated a LOT of sales by having these up front and it backfired because people were either not interested or the product never made its way out.  That's why I think some of these stores have so much extra...if you got in 10 cases and never put them up front, you'll have 20 of each figure sitting around come clearance time.

Picked up another Palpy set and Mace set today, but I really want another Anakin set as well.  Unfortunately they were sold out.  Anyone out there still finding the Anakin/Airbourne sets in their areas?  Please send me a PM if you're willing to ship one my way...  Thanks!

At the $7 price most of these moved in my area already so not suprisingly I saw nothing between a toy run this past weekend and tonight.  Not one O66 is left in my area it seems...  We had dumped TONS of them too but they mostly sold before the big slash, then at $2.50 they were a deal even if you didn't want them.

I Am Sith is hooking me up nicely with a couple extras he got, so if someone can help him find that Anakin/501st Airborne, that would be a nice gesture if anyone got an extra. 

I wonder though, did Target see these as a success or failure?  To our eyes a failure seems obvious but the stores always have unique ways of looking at things...  Will they do more 2-packs like this though, or is it a dead idea now?

The figures weren't all that bad too...  The blue Commander's a little weak, the spinnach trooper is debatable, but some of them are downright great figures really with nice paint aps and things.  And the cloth robes and stuff are nice accessories.

Thanks for looking out for me Jesse, I appreciate it.  Every 2-Pack in this area is gone, and most of them were gone well before the $2.48 clearance hit.  BTW, your figs will be mailed today.

These moved pretty well at the $6.98 clearance price here, with just a few Shock/Palps and AT-RT/Obi-Wan sets left.  After reading reports of the $2.48 price, I was hoping to pick some of those up, but after the aisle reset, they were all gone.  I don't know if they were bought up, or relocated somewhere else, but I didn't see them anywhere in the toy section.  No big deal, but I probably would have picked up a couple at that price had I seen them.

I kind of hope they are viewed as successful, because the two figures for $10 idea is something I like.  It at least sounds like everyone was able to find at least one of each, if they wanted them, and that's good to hear with an exclusive.

All the Targets in my area are clearancing these out for $2.48 now. Too bad they were all gone by $7.98. :P
