TRU Holographic General Grievous
« on: April 20, 2008, 12:42 PM »
A new rumored item from the gang at RS (from a SKN# in the TRU computer):

059737 - $6.99 Holographic Gen Grievous

Let the "lame variant of a lame animated figure" complaining begin!   :P

Lame figure? Grievous is the best animated figure of the wave. :P

It could be red holographic...  You never know.   :-X

I like Evenflow's thinking...  At least it's $6.99 instead of $7.99 or worse.  Thank god for small favors I guess.

A holographic Grievous makes a lot of sense actually. A holographic animated figure I'm a little more wary of.

You beat me to it. That was my very first thought when I caught wind of it.

I wonder if they're going to start taking the approach that they did with the Iron Man figures.

Target (and I think TRU) has an Exclusive Iron Man figure, but it's packaged in a manner identical to the regular line and the only way you can really tell that it's an exclusive is that it has a sticker on it that reads "Only at Target". I wonder if for the Clone Wars, there will be exclusive figures to the big box stores and they'll just get mixed in with the regular assortments, this Holo Grievous being the TRU one.

Yep... maybe that means the whole line really isn't jumping in price by a buck.

I've seen that the Indy figures too are going to be $6.99 (I think).

There was a DPCI that popped up for a Target exclusive "Clone Commander Fox" figure and as we know, a separate DPCI means it's not part of the regular assortment.

087-06-2060 SW Clone Commander Fox ($12.99)

Note that it's priced at the classic Target exclusive price...  ::)

Assuming that this is an animated figure, of course.

Funny charge that on the clam shelled figures when they only charge $9.99 on the end cap stuff (Order 66, Joe Vehicles, Transformers).

I always pass on their $12.99 exclusives anyway though because almost all of them have been lame.
