whoa!  everything is free shipping at HTS.com - no minimum purchase order requirements!  and "Holiday2010" still works!!!

this offer is good until 12/20/10 or until they stop it without notice.

edit:  not sure when the discount code expires.  but I just placed an order for a Hyena Bomber and it all went through.

I am gonna bet that HTS just slaps a postage sticker on the retail box and throws it in the mail...  lol  I am an opener so no worris.

Well, that just plain sucks. I placed my order last night and had to pay full shipping charges. I called back this morning to request a price adjustment but they refused as one item has already "gone to the warehouse" and the two figures I ordered are out of stock/pre-orders. (Nevermind that they were both listed as "In Stock" when my order was submitted last night)

I'm very disappointed with having placed this order, I am basically saving nothing and not even getting 2/3 items I ordered.

Thanks for the heads up!
I just ordered x2 Maul Owen packs, Deena/Luke in black outfits and the new POC Duke for less than $40!

glad I could help   ;D

I have been hitting the "New to Hasbrotoyshop!" link all morning hoping that they put more new stuff online; however I don't think much more "new product" that I would be interested in will come out during this sale.  The few things that come to mind that have a slight chance of being put up for sale that I am interested in would be the new Iron Man 2 comic line figures, and some new MU figures from the World War Hulk wave (HTS is falling behind on MU).  It would be crazy awesome if HTS put the AOTC wave up for sale, or even preorder, during this free shipping/Holiday2010 sale.

ps - you can get some Cuponk balls for 75 cents...   :P    beer pong anyone?

looks like the "holiday2010" code is dead.  anyone know of any other codes?  I just checked and "sw2010" still works for 10% off Star Wars.

B-2-G-1 sale at K-Mart...  $6 figures when you break it down, so good luck.

I can confirm this, I found the entire ROTJ wave sans Luke. I went to Target to find the ROTJ wave for $6 for gifts and after coming up empty handed I decided to hit K-Mart out of desperation. It paid off I bought the 6 they had, my nephew will love these. I just wish I could have found Luke too.

Ok, stupid question time: it has to be 3 of the same thing right? Like I can't buy 2 deluxe vehicle sets and get a free battlepack, correct?

Ad says free item of equal or lesser value.

Yeah, it's always equal or lesser value on stuff like this...  2 ships and a figure free, or two ships and a deluxe vehicle/figure free, or two ships and another ship free, etc.

BTW I see Curto's reported the story now and says, "the selection may be pretty bleak", which tells me he's not stopping there much.  They've had ROTJ wave in more than anyone locally save for Target who haven't had it in for a while now with their price drop.  They also have been getting new CW waves and such.  They're doing better for distribution right now than WM and TRU are around here.

Holy crap, I just got back from TRU and no wonder why they have not received any new shipments.
Vintage Figures $10.99 CW/Legends $8.49!

What are they thinking?  Usually the picking are slim at TRU this time of year but they are jam packed with everything. I understand why they are a little higher but this is just way too much. It turned me off so much I left the store and went to WM. If they are going to jack prices on this what else did they jack up last minute.

They jack it up to $11 and then put them on "clearance" for $9.99. Such a deal! :-X

I refuse to buy any figure unless it is $6.

At the Walgreens nearest me, figures are $11.99, so the $10.99 price tag isn't exactly foreign to me, but that IS a rip-off. Honestly, I didn't see the point behind the ridiculous $1 difference between TVC and TCW/SL, so this just makes it even worse now...

It wouldn't be the holidays without some batshit money grab by TRU.  Makes perfect sense - Target across the street is charging $6, let's go up to $11.  Fiscal prudence.  It's bliss.
