$5 figures at Walmart?

Nice if true, but unfortunately I still have stores with 30AC stuff at $6.63 in their clearance aisle.  All Juno Eclipse.

Yeah, Walmart clearances are so store dependant that stuff like this usually doesn't translate well.  Some places blew out the Droid Factory 2-packs already for $9 while other stores are still sitting on them for $17.  No rhyme, no reason.   ::)

Two stores locally have sets, one has no less than 5 Corran Horns (ironically), and all in clearance, and all at $17 a piece.  :)  One has full sets left too, I believe.  Love those rollbacks!  I want to shoot that smiley face guy in his smiling face.

Yep. This stuff should be common knowledge after all these years. I'm surprised any website would post info like that on the front page.

I'm ok with the news...  A discount is a discount.  Adding, "WM clearances vary greatly so your mileage may vary" is always a good idea I suppose, for those not in the know on stuff like this.  The Scum crowd always has a handful excited at WM clearances I've noticed, haha.  Then...  the disappointment sets in.

The Gunship is a decent price on that ad.  I paid the $70 for it a couple weeks ago but I'm thinking I might run down to TRU and pick one up for $50 and return the other.  Hell, pick up 2, use the $10 off $100 coupon and score two for about $98.

Yep, it was posted here since the sale is for CW items, not "Legacy".  ;)

I got a note about $10 off $75 (most) purchases at Hasbro Toy Shop...  Food for thought if you're behind the 8 ball like I am on a ton of crap.

Just got a call from my Wife, there was a commercial for a sale this weekend at Toys R Us (I think she said 8-1 Saturday and 3-9 Sunday), they said 50% off a number of toy brands including Star Wars.  She didn't catch what they displayed, but thought I'd give a heads up to those with quicker eyes.

No problem. I wish it was something more that we could all get excited about.

I can't wait until those AT-TE's ae gone already.

Regarding the TRU sale, the LEGO sets are only 33% off (not 50).

33% off LEGO MagnaGuard Starfighter
33% off LEGO V-19 Torrent
