My local Target went clearance price on the 3.75" line this week; $3.80.  They also have the 12" on clearance for $10.98.

They even found a 12" talking Indy somewhere, we haven't had one of those in months.  The rest were all Mutt figures, though.

The 3" line were mostly Mutt w/ Snake and Indy w/ Rocket Launcher but there were a couple German Soldiers, Monkey Man, Sallah and Belloq.  I picked up the lone Young Indy on the shelf along with a German (can never have too many army builders).

No clearance on the vehicles, deluxe or Temple playset.  But if they're jumping the gun 2 weeks before Christmas then you can bet they want to be rid of this line.

Fodder is all I figure I'll be on the hunt for at Target...  Some good Jedi and "random schmuck" fodder in that line...  I'm hoping to get a couple Indy's to cobble together a couple Indy's we'll never get, like a decent Cairo Streets Indy.  I'd like some more Arab goons and thugs too...  The Germans aren't abundant here these days though so I'm not even thinking about army building.  Nor are the Russians, which would be nice at a cheap price...

The Russian Soldier is cool, to me, because he and DOvchenko (of course) are actually very accurate to WOrld War 2 Russians...  They, if you can get accurate weapons for them, make nice WW2 figures to go with my Germans, U.S. figures, etc.  Unfortunately weapons are in short supply.  The one Oktober Guard guy from GIJ has a Russian PPsh Sub Machine Gun, but that's about it.  Anyway, a little work like a bed roll and stuff, and the Indy Russians are quite spiffy looking WW2 figures, so maybe I'll luck into some of those.

Overall though I'm just gonna look for fodder...  I doubt I find much as Target's picked over here, but I'll check.

I think the vehicle prices were adjusted at Target from $21.99 to $19.99.

Since the clearance hit on the 3 and 12" figures my store has found 4 or 5 cases of the Last Crusade wave.  I'm not sure if they were in the back or if more came on the truck.  Either way, it would have been nice (for Target anyway) if they'd gotten them two months ago rather than keeping their 6-month old stock out.

Yesterday Target also set up a whole aisle of 30% off stuff (in some cases more than 30%) and what did they have?  Two dozen 12" Indy figures for $10 each.  All Indy, whip action Indy and Mutt.  No Germans or Cairo Swordsman.  I have no idea where they came from because we haven't seen an Indy in that store since June.  Again, if they were sitting on them in the back, shame on Target, because the Indy figures at least would have sold before now, I'm sure.

The local Target knocked what's left of the Indy Titaniums down to $3.80 yesterday.  Still no clearance on the Deluxe, vehicles or the Akator playset.

Be on the lookout at your local TJ Maxx - they are blowing Indy out at 50%.  I picked up the cargo truck (Cario) and they had gobs of TLC wave there, too.

$-40. Buy a Mutt w/Snake, and they'll give you $40! :D

No sales at all on Indy around Pittsburgh.  Targets have not put anything on sale or clearance at all.  Still the SOS on the pegs and shelves.  Typical really considering that I don't think they've put out the Star Wars UBP's yet either.  I kid you not at least some of the stores still had them in the back room last I checked. :)

The GIJ packs JUST got put out this weekend at my nearby Target...  Lame?  You betcha!

Basic figs are $3.00 each at Wal-Mart. One I went to had deluxe for $7 and vehicles for $14 but another one I went to didn't. 12'' are $13 I believe. I don't collect the Adventure Heroes so I didn't see the prices.

All KB Toys are closing and have everything currently 50-percent off. I got a German and Russian soldier there the other day for a combined $1 and change after using up a gift card I had.

I don't know if anyone else is seeing this at their local stores, but the TRU near me put up an endcap of Indy figures yesterday for 4.98 each.  All they had were gobs of the ROTLA and KOTCS waves, but they had pretty much everyone from those waves in abundance. 

My only hope is that Hasbro liquidates the TOD figures and they show up at TRU eventually.   :-\
