I've also seen the new $10 price on figs that were just $5 a couple weeks ago.  Walmart is off their rocker.

Just noticed that Amazon currently has the Skystriker for $19.99.  You'd have to add something else to hit the $25 "free shipping" marker, but still a pretty nice deal for anyone interested.

I don't really like the plastic/color on the Skystriker or the cockpit, but I'll wait for them to be clearanced out at Target before I decide if I want more as they certainly don't appear to be selling all that well.  Shame that we couldn't have at least gotten a Sky Boomer repaint out of the deal, but I think that flight has departed... hahaa

Sounds like Target is starting to clearance Skystrikers, so it may be time to grab an extra for Night Boomer repainting. Also, I noticed they raised the price of single figures to $10.99. Never thought I'd see the day that GI Joe figures were $2 more than Star Wars figures.

What's up with the Target sale?  On sale for $7.99 regular price $8.99?  Weren't they $10.99?? Would have picked up a few more techno vipers or the elusive Mr. White, but my store hasn't restocked since Oct/Nov but I see others have.

Skystrikers still full price up here.

Yeah, $10.99 at one store here, about 5 miles away, the other store is $8.99 - but both have the $7.99 sale.

If Skystrikers hit clearance here, I'll buy another one - my son just broke the "wings tab" on his about a week ago.  Dang 4-year olds.   :)

My Target upped the price to $10.99 a week or so ago.  I see that the shelf tag is still $10.99 and on my receipt it said the figure I bought yesterday was $7.99 marked down from $10.99.  But the sale tag on the peg says on sale, down from $8.99.

Sounds like a case of the sale tags being printed prior to the price increase.  Still have no idea why Target bumped the price $2 when all they had were a handful of wave 4 peg warmers like Tunnel Rat, Scarlett and Ripcord.

On the plus side, I walked into Target on Sunday and smack into the middle of a case 3 restock.  Score one Storm Shadow!!

I gotta find Stormshadow yet for my brother.  I passed on him when I saw him because my bro didn't want all the resculpts of them, but then wouldn't you know that was the one SS he wants...  Gotta keep hunting, always.  ::)

I will probably be getting these for my Dreadnoks http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=MST35024AA&utm_source=EE_Satellite&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=031513_Newsletter&utm_content=MST35024AA#.UUcMcBeccoM

They are a bit pricey though, these are only normally $4 a piece at Target.  Hopefully they will be cheaper at retail.

There's Maisto bikes at Tuesday Morning often too...  Made an awesome 1:18 Harley from WW2...  Love it for my military figures.  Ebay's probably riddled with those types of bikes for cheap.

Not a Joe collector, but I saw these at Big Lots the other day and thought I would let you other GI's know.  Only $7 for all three figures.
