Not sure if anyone would care, but I was at KMart yesterday and anything in their clearance section was an additional 50% off.  So the Imperial ARC fighter and Clone Wars Y-Wing, which were $52ish, were clearance priced to $42 (I think) meaning they were $21 or so.  They also had the Clone trooper helmets, the RC-R2 and a smattering of Lightsabers and Blasters.

Drawing a blank again - do those codes generally "expire" when it comes time for the SDCC goodies?

Not sure, this one expires on 8/15

Just thought I'd share a very insignificant piece of news, but, at Target, you can easily get clearanced Malakillis and other "undesirables" in the LC line for $4.19. Hopefully they'll get a tsunami of new TVC product in the coming month, especially since there's not even a Star Wars section at most stores anymore.

Here's a fun Target find; the only 3 basic figures they have left are Breha Organa figs.  They have clearance tags on them and are currently scanning for $3-something (50% off I believe).  However, some chucklehead tagged them with a clearance sticker saying they were originally something like $14.89 and they're now $7.44.

I think it's a conspiracy by Target to never, ever sell those three figures.  Ever.

My Target had like 10 Bespin Guards...  No matter how good they make him, he still won't sell. 

I bought 2, I'll admit.  I didn't think they'd have anything, but I was wrong.

They also have Yarna and Breha...  still.

History repeating.

Back in the 80's the dark-skinned Bespin Guard was a total peg warmer. You could still find them on ESB cards years after Kenner ended the whole Star Wars line. I wound up with 8 of them. I think I have one MOC somewhere.

Your mileage may very on this because it happened to me at Target - and they were reducing all clearance stuff to 75% off

I bought:
2 Clone Commander Blascters - marked down to $10 each
1 Clone Nerf gun - $4.25
1 Clone Helmet - $10

But the best part is, with the inclusion of the Aurra Sing figure I bought last week - I can now mail away for another free Rex Helmet   ;D  (I have to use the Sing purchase because for whatever reason the Clone trooper helmet wasn't included on the form - only the Rex style).

I am thinking I may be able to send away for a 3rd too with the purchases I made a while back on the Snow Speeder and Cloud Car vehicles during TRU's bogo 1/2 off sale.  The form just says standard vehicles....

And yes - I will of course be using different mailing addresses   ;)  hope it works - I am just getting this stuff for my son to give to his friends for birthdays

I don't think they care for this promo - well at least the TF one said you could have multiple shipments sent to the same address - just need a seperate order form for each submission...SW could be different though?  I dunno..

I am 99.9% sure there's no problem shipping to the same address.  They just want to clear things out, so no limits or anything.

I got my Rex Helmet not too long ago actually.  It's pretty nifty as a toy, I see why kids love these things.  I had the Vader...  They're too big to buy them all I figure, but man that Boba one is tempting too.

Free though, couldn't pass it up.  I've not had a need/urge to buy much more SW stuff to get another item, but I just maybe broke $25 last week, so I need to go through all my receipts the last month and see what I maybe bought.  I don't believe Jodo Kast counts, unfortunately. :(
