Had to run to Rite aid to pick up medication and perused the toy isle, figures are up to $12, even the FF 8D8.  :o

I got you all beat!  I just paid 9.19 for the BAD Tattoine wave at Target.  It's in a fancy twon, I wonder if the next one over (in the less afluent area) will be cheaper?  Yes, army building is over.

You knew it was coming...the local K-Mart has raised the price for basic figures (Legacy, CW, and Saga Legends) to 8.99.  I grabbed another MagnaGuard this morning and found this out at the register, so needless to say, he's going back in the morning.   :-\

There appears to be a lot of good products coming out in 2009, but I have to be very choosy as to what I buy.  What a shame.  I guess it's just the sign of the times.  Time to invest in the lottery ;).

Army building is definitely over with (except for a few figures) and I too am being very picky with what I buy. I'm already down to basic figures only, maybe 2 comic packs a year. Also for what it's worth I've bought maybe two Star Wars items at Target over the last year, their prices are just insane.

I'm not buying basic carded figures for a penny over $7.99

That's my limit.

Mercifully, waves seven and eight have no army builders, so I can pick a few extra Hoth rebels without breaking the bank.

I think smile8 is good for 10% off, but that's thirdhand news. It's worth a try.

Thanks.  This does work.  I used it today for a purchase.

I noticed in GH's weekly Q and A this week, they mentioned how the days of the $20 vehicle are going to soon be gone.  I've seen it mentioned before, but I noticed that our local WM has raised their vehicle prices to $24.77 now ($24.99 at TRU).  Surprisingly, I think Target is the only one currently at $19.99 (some stores might be $21.99 now that I think of it).  I guess it goes hand in hand with all the other price hikes lately, but it really is too bad.  The vehicles for $20 always felt like a pretty decent value for the most part, but some will seem less and less every time we jump $5.

I'm okay with $20 to $25 for the new mid-size vehicles.  New sculpts are totally worth that.  Its just unfortunate that the repacked/repainted stuff will have to cost that much as well, buecause it will likely sit and kill the distribution.

Not too many more new $20 vehicles to do from the OT anyway. Not going have much of an impact on me.

No longer working.  Anyone know of any new ones?

I saw on another site that "SW2009" should be good for 10% off SW merchandise.  I've not used it though, so I can't confirm it; hopefully, it will work for you.
