Guess there's some Christmas in July sale happening at TRU starting this weekend

The "Christmas in July" promo has been part of the weekly ad for the last two weeks... that's why figures are "2-for $9.99" this week.  ;)  It's just a catchy marketing thing.

Not that I'd likely be able to get it now, but I was always waiting for TRU to feature the Turbo Tank on a "Christmas in July" or some sort of promo like the AT-TE saw (when they were $50).  Sort of surprised we never saw that.

Check K-Mart.  I got my TTank for $40 there.  They'll surprise you with sales/clearances sometimes.

For real.  They are only counting the 6.99-7.49 figures, and my TRU absolutely would not cave.

Are there any free shipping codes for HTS floating around?  I'm thinking about ordering the AT-AT but would love to save the $18 on shipping.

I don't know how it happened.  Originally they rang up at 11.49 a piece (this is NYC).  I mentioned the two for 9.99 sign, and walked back to the aisle with the cashier.  The vinatge figs were hanging on a peg with the "sale" sign. She said Ok and rang them up at 4.99 each.  Easy peasy.

If they're on a marked peg, and the sign is on that peg (IE: the peg says "Vinty figs, $9.99", and there's a sale sign stuck to THAT peg), they owe you the price and cannot argue it.  It's a mislabeled sign by the employees is all, and it may have been fixed immediately after you left (if someone being responsible brought it to a manager's attention), or it could still be that way if nobody did anything about it.

Not sure if this has been brought up yet, but BPs and assault vehicles are on sale at Target for $19.99 through Sept.

They are?  Because my store didn't have any sale running yesterday.

It must've started today. Good for those Clone army packs and the Imperial Hoth set...well, maybe. If you'd had your fill of Vader that means 1 Hoth Scout trooper with bike and one Hoth stormtrooper with tripod cannon. You might be better off getting 3 Snowtroopers for $6.99 each. I say that because the Hoth Scout looks odd to me.

Sales normally start on Sunday and I think Target will honor the sale price if you bought within the last 7 days.  Just bring your receipt back in and they should credit you the difference.
