One of the Targets near me has all Vintage figs and Movie Heroes figs for half off on clearance. All they are going to carry are the 2 CW figs coming out this year? Great.

Is that 50% off their $13 price?  SLP Target seems to be trying every possible price.

No they had marked them down to $10 so now they are $5.

Might be a bit late, but my TRU was doing (sign said friday & saturday) a buy two get one free on Star Wars, GI Joe, Avengers & (something I can't recall..), 3 3/4" action figures.  I could only find two figures I could convince myself were worthwhile, so I passed, but someone else might think this is worthwhile enough to go shopping tonight...

Not sure if this is old news or not, but saw some CW 2packs (with "special price sticker") at Tuesday Morning for $9.99 a pop.  Don't really remember the combos, but Embo, Mandoman, and Obi's Droid come to mind.

Hmm

That is news.

So basic figres stuck together for $10 a pop?  Only Clone Wars?

Weird.  Good deal though if you wanted both figures.  Tuesday Morning sucks for predictability is the only crummy thing. :(  Mine have never, ever, had the same thing other areas reported, haha.  And they're maybe the biggest disaster area of any discount retailer.

Ya I know TM is a craphole, but I stop by once a month or so just to cruise the toy aisle and see what's up...They've had some decent tf ko's from time to time.  The store I was at only had 4 of the two packs there and just CW figs, but I don't ever remember seeing them anywhere else where they were bundled together with that special price sticker thing.

Stopped at the 2 TM's today, one only had Shaak Ti/Young Boba and Battle Droid/Embo. Looks like they just hot glued stuff together, slapped a special value sticker on it and called it good. Other store ~6 miles away had nothing.

I found a TM this afternoon next to a Marshall's, but they had nada for SW, other than 2 Clone Trooper helmets. :(

Got a TRU Rewards flyer in the mail today with two $10 off any $50 purchase coupons...one good for a week this month the other a week in May.  Hopefully there will be another BOGOHO sale on LEGO SW so I can use them during those weeks.

I wandered into Toys R Us yesterday and basic Movie Heroes figures were up to $10.39 + Tax.

I saw the local Walmart dropped their clearance price on the Vulture Droid and Dewback to $16. Still had a few of each left...

A number of TRU stores in my area have hiked their TVC basic figure price to $11.49 per figure.  Not liking that at all.

Was at a Target earlier today and noticed that most of the toylines had clearance stickers... Spidey and GI Joe in particular. Nothing for Star Wars of course but hopefully with the resets we'll get some new SW stuff.
