Someone on RS posted a link to a $5.00 off of $20.00 Hasbro Star Wars purchase.

It's a few pages in, but it's there:

If all the machines at your work share an IP address it might not let you (right?).

Not sure whether this is a nationwide trend or not, but one of my local Wal Marts had all Star Wars figures marked down to $6.00.  They had the newest waves all in a large aisle display.

Saw the $6 price today in the Ithaca, NY Walmart also.  Scored the ESB wave so it was a good day.

We had the $6 basic figure price at our local WM today as well.  No luck on the ESB wave, but I was able to snag a couple of CW figures I was missing.  I hope that $6 price sticks around for awhile, although that isn't real likely post-Christmas I'm guessing.

Hilarious in an unfunny way - toyrocket.com just sent me my UPS tracking number.  According to UPS, it was billed to UPS... wait for it... today.  So much for them shipping it out back on 11/24/09 like toyrocket.com told me.

so hopefully now it will actually ship out tomorrow 12/4/09 - just a week and a half lie on their part - no big deal...

I will be happy as hell when this actually gets to me - I got a great deal.  I just wish I would have been told by them in advance that it would take 1 month or more to get fulfilled and not all the pushbacks/lies.

$6 at WM?  That's nice.  I'll stock up on some army builders at that price if I've got the extra moolah...  I know I've cut back since figures went up to $6.99, and then the jump to $7.49-$7.99 really took me out of buying extras like before.

At $6 I'd probably stock up on Clones and whatnot I otherwise would never have considered prior.  There's also some fodder I may nab now at the lower price.

Problem is, I can't get anyone to honor internet coupons.

The local WM changed over to the $6 pricing on figures.  The peg warmers are more prominent now, so may be the figures are moving a little better.  I hoping to see some of the value 2-packs to show up to catch up on quite a few figures.

I was able to use the $5 off $20 at Walmart with no problems last night.

Target gave me problems, but eventually a manager was called in, and they honored it.

Also, get this. I mentioned this in my most recent purchase, but, the scanning trooper's UPC hasn't been tagged for the WM $6 sale in my area. Every other figure, Basic, Legends and CW, is ringing as $6 except for this one.  It took some convincing to explain that the sale can't exclude one specific figure when I tried to buy a few.
