Just got back from a TRU trip and found Pons Limbac, he rang up at $7.49 so they ended the sale earlier than advertised out here as well.

Not that anyone cares, but looks like Target has their StarFormers on sale for $10.

Can confirm my local TRU ended the sale too. Local Wal-Marts are still $4.50 though I've heard rumors that other Targets and WM are upping the prices back to thr $6 range.

Did it do any good? Did they actually move product?

Every store I have been to has...  They're down to the bare minimum(s) of pegwarmers pretty much.  My nearest WM went from having literally a full section in the main SW aisle of basic figures, as well as a completely full endcap of Legends, down to just pretty much filling up the main aisle now (it's got space for new stuff) of figures.

And that includes them getting in case upon case of ESB Wave revision cases and the snowbi-wan/Ani cases lately which have been selling through for the most part. 

The usual suspects have lingered on though, like Legends Plo, Legacy Plo, CW3D Plo, and Yarna.  Also a number of Bespin Guards oddly enough...  It's down mostly to Legends/CW3D stuff now though.  Still 3 1st day of issue Yarna's I laugh about all the time too.  Love seeing those around.

Did they also have C5 contest stickers on them? It would be sad if one of those had an actual winning ticket in them.

The sale prices at the local Target move Clone Wars and Legends but the TLC figures were already at a minimum with the most recent stragglers being a Wing Guard, Hood and Agen Kolar.  And, of course, we still have blue packaged Breha and Bail Organa and a Stass Allie figure left from the flood last October.

Walmart, on the other hand, has moved Clone Wars at $4.50 but not as much Legends and I don't think any sale price is going to move all the Malikili, Nien Nunb and Nikto figures.

Surprisingly, no...  None of the blue stuff but Xixor/Leia comics got the sticker.

At my store there were TONS of Nein Numb's around and they actually moved, so you never know.  $4.50 pilots is a good price.  The Nikto and stuff were gone anyway.   :-\

Just sent in for that "free gear give away" thing.  Fingers crossed for the Rex helmet for my son.

Crap! At Target they were like around $4.99 when on sale... but the $6 price range is OK, too! At normal price they're $9 flat, including tax.

Some jackhole on another forum was trying to give me crap for buying figures online at TRU at "inflated prices" and I had to explain that the figures actually cost $7.49 on the pegs now at any TRU, not just online.  ::)

Why should he care what you pay for figures. That's your business. He's just jealous you got them.

It seems confusing as to what people are even paying...  Some are saying $9.99, others are saying less...  I don't get to TRU often.  TRU.com was having a sale going on when they put these up?  Or no?

$7.50-$7.99 is what we were paying, so if you paid that I don't see anything inflated about it...   $9.99, eh...  But like was said, it's your money.  I just wouldn't spend that kind of dough on them.

I'm just twiddling my thumbs till I can wander out to a TRU I guess.  No sense getting pissy with someone for buying stuff now.

The advertised price is at $9.99, but with the BOGO sale and free shipping, it comes out to what we are pretty much paying at the moment.
