I'm assuming this is an April Fools gag...

And it's a ****** one too since it will result in people driving all over town looking for something that doesn't exist.

It could be, but some WMs are weird like that.  We had a Target here in MN that was selling TAC figs for $2.50 for about six months or so back in the day.  That store got continually raped by a few of us.

I was thinking the same thing.  The price tags and receipt are a nice touch though.

There was a Wal-Mart in Grapevine that had 30thAC figures marked at $3.00 even for about 5 or 6 months (basically from about wave 01 through wave 05).  I bought so many Stormtroopers, Death Star Troopers, Honor Guards, Airborne Troopers, and Galactic Marines over the course of that time...  It was awesome.

As for the Scum story, all I know is that they have an April Fools gag up there every single year and I don't see anything else that qualifies, so I've got to assume for now that this is it, and if it is, it's lame.

If it is, it's their all-time lamest...

The pricetags and receipt are a sure nice touch though if it is.  ???

All I know is I'm not expecting anything but $7.50 figures at my WM as even if it is true, it's highly unlikely other stores will have the same deal.  WM's discounts are so random it's not funny.  Nothing worth worrying about since 99% of us wouldn't have that deal going for us anyway.

Why can't it be legit? It doesn't mean that any others are going to be following suit. We all know that.

I think that's real.  There was one near the school I teach that did the same thing about a month ago, but all they had were some Yarnas and a few others.

It certainly could be real... I'm just looking for their annual gag and don't see anything else.

I'm not sure if they will end up having Legacy goodies, but check out the cool auctions going on over at Yakface:

They will be adding more throughout April and you win just using your YakPoints (earned through posting or various other activities on the site).  Check out the lottery and bank for more ways to earn points.

They also have a SW Easter Egg contest going on right here for more free stuff:

Another FYI that the $5 Big K sale on all action figures is holding on for another week!

And it's advertised now...  That means, Pricematchin' time!  And if you're lucky, as I am, you can land some Wave 5 figures with it.  :)

We don't have any K-Marts around here anymore, but I stopped in at TRU to check out their "2 for $11" deals yesterday.  Not really much left there, unless I wanted to pick up a Yarna and Legends Plo Koon combination :).  I noticed that all of the Force Unleashed 3 Packs I saw there on Saturday were sold out though.  They had the B-Wings marked down to $30 - I have to admit I was somewhat tempted, but left them for now.  Four Lars sets still at full price there, I was sort of hoping those would go on clearance eventually as well.

For anyone thinking about trying this - I had no luck getting TRU or Target to price match K-Mart's ad. I think Walmart still price matches for anyone that has easy access to one.   :P

Yaeh, TRU never did and Target stopped it some years ago...  WM pricematches anything with a marked sale price though if you have the ad...  I've gotten them to do it with a receipt from another store too, but that's rare that it's worked.

I LOVE the sound of $5 figures; I'm going to pass by K-Mart but I don't have high hopes for my particular store.
