I got Wave 5 at Walmart for $7.88 each.

You know, the Han Ceremony is like the best Harrison Ford likeness ever.  Still not perfect, but definitely good and the best one yet.

P.S. all of the stormtrooper and 212th clone trooper helmets were messed up beyond belief.  They need to be recalled and redone.

Wow, $9?  Now that's a steal Paul.  Did they have more?

WOW. Score!  Wish we had WM deals like that around here.  I finally took my $40 Bomber back to the store - I'll just go without if I can't land one on clearance.   :-\

Good prices.

The only Star Wars clearance around here are Legacy Capt. Colton and Bespin Guards for around $4. Oh, and the Clone Wars tin at TRU...bleh.

Wow, price bump on the pilots sucks...  $29.99 isn't atrocious, but sucks nonetheless.

Those Endor sets are now priced at $31.99 around here I noticed.

Yup. I was there yesterday, and they were $31.99. They'll be $50 by summer.  ::)

I normally do not order from Brian's Toys but there is a $15 off code on orders of $75 or more. I purchased x8 AOTC Vintage Clonetroopers. To find 8 of these in one shot will be difficult at retail so it was worth it to me. Since I am rebuilding my army I need to find ways to get these in bulk.

Code: 15OFF

At Toys R Us this week the Clone Wars deluxe vehicles and Legacy collection Battle Packs are 50% off, they actually had a few  battle packs at TRU yesterday. Ones they are likely to have are Birth of Darth Vader and Tatooine Ambush (maul vs. Qui-Gon). (Ad shows Hoth Speeder Bike recon patrol...yeah, right), they had older boxed Clone Wars battle packs...doubt they are included.

As per the front page, www.ImperialHolocron.com is reporting $6.04 prices on Vintage at a Target in I'm guessing New York State somewhere in the North.

I'm not sure if this is a flash in the pan at one store, or something that will spread.  Target is certainly spread out on prices like WM is at times, as I know my stores are all the $8.99 while of course others have seen them for significantly more. 

Still, $6.04?  I wouldn't turn my nose to that if I saw figures for that price...  Hell, I'd probably stock up on anything at all I was interested in, even yellowed helmets, haha.

That's funny, I was at a nearby Target and the raised their prices to $10.19 for Vintage and $9.17 for Legends/CW's. Who makes up those prices? You feel nickeled and dimed. At this point I would be happy to see $7.99...
