I can't speak for Sal's find, but mine was a signage error.  They had a $34.99 reduced tag on it, which I got price adjusted since it wasn't in the computer.  About a week after I got it fixed, they put them back to $39.99.

Now $49.99 of course.

I'm smelling "holiday special" with the Rancors especially since Hasbro acknowledged that the UBP formula will not be at Target this year....just a very far off hunch.  I'm sure I'm wrong, but still.....a hunch do to the price bump.

I'll count myself lucky that I found this for $34.99.

It's an excellent addition to the collection.

Wow, where did you find it for $35?

Target. And like Jesse, I think this was just an error in price tag. I"m glad I got it for the cheaper price though. It's a great piece, but the extra $10-15 would be a harder pill to swallow.

When adjusting the price, a few thinking employees must have thought, "no, they can mean increase the price 20%. They must have meant decrease," then decreased it.   :)

I'm surprised this beast is still around. I wanna buy it, but $45 is just a little too beyond my price range. Around what time does anyone think this will go on clearance?  ??? I usually see only 1-2 of these on shelf at a time at my local Targets.

These will hang around for the holiday. I'm sure these will be on clearance around new years.

It WOULD make a good Christmas present, actually....

I've been noticing (but not caring) the same thing.  Does make you wonder what was up with that $10 increase though.

These have hit clearance down to 50% now, and at that price I couldn't pass. Now that I have one open, and compared it to the POTF2 one, I'm very glad I picked it up. If you haven't gotten one yet, don't wait much longer... With the prices these days, this is some of the best money spent on the collection in a long time.

If I can find one in the $25 range, I'm sure I'd bite.  It's such a great piece, wouldn't mind getting another.

I'd love to get one of these at that price, but being in Canada makes that difficult since we rarely get all of the exclusives. If anyone wants to help a fellow out I'm more than willing to pay cost plus shipping.
