I'm just glad this wave isn't $10+ a pop.  I can handle $7.49 if they did indeed raise the price.

That's been the Legacy price (or more) so I'm not really surprised.  If it holds I'm not overly angry either, but $6.99 or less is nice when you find it, and I think it'd help spur sales more than it's given credit for.

It looks like TRU is attempting to capitalize on the exclusive status of the EU wave.  I've seen prices on TLC basic figures jump up at TRU to $7.49 each.

I'd hardly call an extra $.50 capitalizing.   ;)

I got a TRU coupon for $10 off a purchase of $50 or more in the mail today. I'm not sure if it's a nationwide deal, but it will be great to use with all of the exclusives currently trickling out.

I got one today as well.  I've no clue if this is due to my Rewards card, but just in time.   8)

Attention to all - be on the look out for $6.24 + tax figures at Target! The price drop may apply to certain stores, but this began a smidgen before Easter when it began as a temporary sale until April 3rd. I returned to a local Target April 19th, and was surprised that the "SALE" signs had been removed, and the price tags read $6.24 - prices dropped from $8 to $6.24!

HTS is running a "Spring Sale" and there are a few SW things in it.  Go to HTS's homepage for the link to see what is included in the sale.

They've been at $6.04 at all the STL area Targets since early April.  I figured that $6.04 was the new national pricepoint and had been for a couple weeks... guess not.

My local Targets have been at $6.04 since early April as well.

The Twin Cities does have some "premium" Target stores though.  Those "premium" stores are always on a higher pricing system than the majority of Target stores, so I guess it's those Targets in that "premium" designation that have the $6.24 price.

I was sincerely surprised that my finds made it to the Jedi Defender home page!! But yes, I have scored Basic Figures at the $6.24 price point... interesting to hear that some Target stores have them for $6.04.

They've been $6.99-ish here, and are (last time I was there over the weekend) $6.64.   I haven't bought a figure at Target because of that, and they've got some Scanner Techs I'd buy if I found them for less, but given that I've been finding 2 new Scanner Tech's at WM every time I pop in for $6, I figured why give Target my money when they wouldn't budge their price, ya know?

I'm hopeful they're dropping price to at least your sighting Jabba...  $6.04 would be much nicer though.

Forgot to post this earlier, but this weekend my local Wal-Marts (which are clogged with Dewbacks and AT-STs) finally started to put them on clearance. Dewbacks are $20 and AT-STs $30.

Not bad Diddly...  If you're interested in helping some of those AT-ST's and Dewbacks go, LMK.  :)

Interesting. Wonder how many other WM's still have those. Wonder if Ross will get another round.

Yes, it would be nice for further price drops. I'm staying hopeful that figures/product will go on sale before the turn of TVC... by then stores will be looking for a way to sell everything. And Target these days has been upping their prices.  :(
