If we're lucky, WM will maybe force the hands of the others to lower prices.  I'd be content with just TRU coming down anyway.  Target, they're a greedy one I've noticed and jack prices up regardless of competition, so we'll see.

I've made sure to mention the 15% price difference between TRU and WM in every response I've sent to TRU.   ;)

Went by my Local Target today $7.99  with a Walmart less then 2 miles down the road why would I pay a $1 more?  I hate going to WalMarts, but still a $1 is a $1. Anyway it just gives me an excuse to cut back like I had planned for a long time. And with these prices it makes it just that much easier to so.  So far I have bought a total of 4 LC figures and have no more interest till the wave with more Jabba's palace creatures,Ewoks, and Jedi.  No more Hans,Lukes,VAders, R2, C3PO,clones, Chewys..well you get the hint the standards they always roll out..year after year.

The best part about shopping at WM or TRU versus Target is that I go into those stores, buy or do not buy Star Wars and leave.  I can rarely get out of Target without purchasing something else.   :-\

TRU is running a sale this week on Battle Packs and Mid-Sized Vehicles, 25% off, so they're $18.74 in stead of $24.99.

Not sure if this has been brought up yet or not, but I stopped by Target this morning before work...

Assault Vehicles - $21.99
Battepacks - $21.99
Evo Sets - $21.99
GH Cinema Scenes - $21.99
Lightsabers - $21.99

Target doesn't usually have isolated price increases/decreases so I'd expect this to be a nationwide thing.  We're getting less product and we're paying more money for it.  Yay   ::)

Yikes! I have been buying less and less a Target, especially Comic Packs & Basic figures. More reason not to shop there, their prices are starting to kick it K-Mart style.

Picked two Commander Fox's at local target for $3.50 each.  I saw them on the pegs and I knew they would be discounted so I scanned and sure enough.... ;D

That should make up a little bit for the price hikes.

No idea, but it worked for me about a week or so ago. 

Just a follow-up for people to watch out using this code.  I ordered 2 Legends figures ($6.99) and a Legacy figure ($7.99), then used the code.  To my surprise, I got 20% off and free shipping, so order came to $18 and change.   ;D

My order came a few days ago and figs were minty, but here's the catch - despite an email confirmation, the invoice with my package showed that they charged me $23 and change.   >:(  Not sure how they think that's remotely acceptible - I've received no other communication that my order price should be different.  I wrote them a scathing email about it, so we'll see what happens.

Point is - if you use this code, be sure to check your hard copy invoice to make sure they didn't jack your price back up.
