So with JTA's early word about a TRU sale I decided to hit two local ones... First one had the Coronet set, which rocks. I was ecstatic not just to get the set, but to get it for a few bucks less than full retail.
They'd restocked vintage here with ALL Wave 6. No 7 at all, just Wave 6 galore, which TRU here was overflowing with Wave 6 in the first place, so that kinda sucked, but at least it's a good wave for army builders (Senate Guard, Endor Rebel, AOTC Clone which is everywhere anyway, and AT-RT DRivers which are a b to find).
So I bought enough to get the USB... USB's were hanging in the main SW figure area, not the up front thing, but they're neat for a freebie IMO.
My store had no new CW figures, and barely anything really of note besides the Vinty Wave 6.
My 2nd stop was a TRU further south and it had the cardboard shippers with new CW figures, but only an Aqua droid and Sae Sae with the jetpack thing were left.
They also had a TON of Wave 6, like the other store, but someone had picked through a lot of the CW figures and there were no Coronet sets left.
Overall with the cheap army builders I was actually pretty pleased, but I was disappointed I couldn't get Seripas as well.
If anyone's curious what's on the USB's, they're R2-D2 flash drives, 2 Gig, rubber (molded around a flash drive, the dome pops off as the cap, about action figure scaled actually), and they have something with a CW game online, and 3 sets of coupons (Pretty basic stuff, money off sabers or masks, money off total Lego purchases of $100/$150, etc. Nothing great for action figures).
The sale's real beauty is $6.99 vinty figures and even cheaper Legends/CW.
I did see a lot of Legends around, and good stuff too, but I didn't buy any.
I think if figures were this cheap year round, you'd see a different take at retail on SW stuff. Just my opinion, but sales clear TRU out, and otherwise TRU sits on stuff unless it's brand spanking new. Sales at any retailer move stuff fast though, which just proves to me the prices have hit a point where people are saying, "no, this is way too much for something this small".
JTA also had psoted old TRU exclusives were getting deep clearance, however most of that stuff had sold out here long ago, so I saw nothing like that around me.
