Lots of the Snaggletooth 3-packs have hit $12.48 here...I'm debating picking a few up, but not sure if they will go lower or not. Did not think to check if the figures have gone down further as well, but based on reports around the internet it seems they are.

Do they have clearance stickers on them? If so, I'd get one and wait on the rest.  Snags alone would have trade value. Plus, even though most of the last 3 packs hit clearance they've gained in resale value. If you change your mind, odds of getting $13 back are pretty good.

None of those packs left close to me. Just the droids. I checked last thursday and they were $17+ still.    They didn't have clearance stickers on them.

Yeah, they are all marked with the red clearance tags, but the price says $17.48. I checked them on the price scanner though and they did ring up at $12.48. Seems like a good deal to me, so yeah, I may grab one.

Picked up the Blue AOTC Clontrooper and the Red ROTS Shocktrooper for $5 each at Target on friday.  There wasn't any clearance stickers on any of the Star Wars toys, but they scanned at $5.

Saw all of the Deleted Scenes Wave last night at Walmart, sans Sandstorm Leia.

Found the deleted scene wave at TRU today, never saw Leia or Lando until now, so I picked them up.  I wonder if the Starkiller wave is still floating around in TRU warehouses.

God, I hope so...that was easily the most impossible to find wave in the past few years. I never saw a single figure from this wave on the pegs around here ANYWHERE.

Found a CW Anakin at TRU today for $4.99. They decided to restock with even more TPM wave of kid Anakin, naboo royal security, battle droids and obiwan/quigon. It took them 18 months get rid of the last set. Now they just put more back out!!!! Damn you TRU!

LAST DAY OF TRU SALE.  :( (unless the shelf tag was lying)

I missed the second and third deleted scene waves that arrived at TRU, I mean I missed the deleted scene characters. THe reships were there. Even Maul was hanging around for $5! I got Battle Droid and Naboo Royal Guard, since I never bothered to get them before (yeah, TPM wave just didn't interest me, the only character I got until now had been Dofine). I still find Naboo forces boring and of limited use and the new scale of Battle Droid is irritating, with only one per card, too (compared to the legends of past). Both are decent figures. Not sure I'd army build either one now since their discounted days are passing (?). I passed up Sidious, Maul, Voss and padawan Anakin...tempting but buying too many prequel characters sometimes burns me out on collecting.

Found a Gungan at Five Below, they put out another case finally, though someone beat me to some figures or they didn't put the whole case out. I gotta get more Gungans to guard Jabba, since I missed out on cheap Gamorreans.  :P

Found Malgus and the INC at Target this morning, fresh case on the pegs. Forgot to check if they were still ringing up at the clearance price. Dammit.

I grabbed a Malgus, DS Luke and Lando, Darth Vader and...  one other that is escaping me at this moment... on the final $499 day at TRU.

$499 is a lot per figure, but not surprising.  :D

Folks are claiming the $4.99 TRU sale is still going on, with the current buy one get one half off sale, too.

If only my employer were as forgetful with decimal points.  ;)

The figure I forgot was the Imperial Naval Commander.

TRU.com is still showing these as $50 with B1G150% underneath...
