just grabbed one of each of the Hoth UBP's on sale for $35 each.

Huh...Time for another price adjustment then.  Cool...

Yeah I was surprised when I got there tonight and the Hoth sets were $5 off too.  I'm taking my receipt for a price adjustment too...  That's like $30 saved for me...  Nothing to sneeze at for sure.

By the way, I saw:

-$6 CW figures
-$6.99 Vintage (not bad since WM is getting gutted at $6)
-$19.99 Vehicles
-$34.99 Hoth packs
-$9.99 Geo 2-packs

and now I can't remember what else.   :-\  Lots of crap on sale though.  I almost nabbed a vintage boxed Snowspeeder for that price.  I miss $19.99 ships.  Thankfully Target has that price often, but I still miss it regular because, like army builders, I nabbed a fighter now and again for a cool $20, just because (tying in my thoughts with the, "how many are too many repaints" thread, haha).

My Target had a LOAD of vintage figs too, so the $1 off was nice.  Lots of army builders I may pick up later this week, depending what's left.

I picked up the Defense pack for $30 today. I had a $5 Sw toy purchase and was waiting for those to go on sale. So, 3x figures and 2x turrets for $30 is not a bad price. If only I had another...

Nice to hear the assault vehicles are $20 - not to mention the vinty versions.  Time to stock up I guess.   >:D

I posted this in another thread but I will say it here too.  I scanned the swamp speeder at Target yesterday when I saw it.  it was not on sale - just the exclusive vehicles in vintage packaging.

I found about this sale by accident when I purchased my 5th Attack on Hoth set yesterday. I will pick up my 6th and final Defense on Hoth set as this is too good of a deal. I am very surprised these went on sale, I almost wish I waited. I think these will really fly now.

It even appears the Geo series sets are clearing out, it shows you how much of a difference a $10 price point makes.

I have to admit that I'm slightly tempted to pick up the vinty boxed snowspeeder as well now.  I already have a couple, but really do like that box and could always use another snowspeeder.  We'll see I guess.  Nice sales though.

Ya those vinty boxes are just too dang purty to pass up.  I picked up the Tie & Snowspeeder this morning.  Shame the "regular" line of vehicles isn't on sale, but no worries...

Yeah, the mid-sized vehicles were marked on sale at my store, but I didn't scan any.  They easily could've been mismarked.  It's a store sort of notorious for not marking shelves right, and not setting things properly.  But all the vehicles had sale tags when I stopped by last night.

I'm going to guess they probably won't ring up if yout ake them to the register though.

But if you showed them the tag, they'd have to honor that price, right?

Yes, they should have to honor it, if it's labeled a certain sale price.

Christ, they have mid-size vehicles listed for $31.99!  :o

That is just ridiculously over-priced, makes TRU look cheap in comparison.

Think I'll pass on the $95 case assortments of figures too.

with the discount it comes to $71.25, and with shipping at the most costing only $10 = $81.25 / 12 figures in a case = $6.77 a figure shipped to my door.  not terrible imo.  sure you may not want all of the figures in said case - but that is what Target is for, right?   :P
