Clone Wars & Legneds were a whopping $1 off at Target this week it seems.  $8.99 a sale price?  Ha...  ha...  ha...  ugh.

Odd, I got the $1 off sale price when I bought a MH figure on Friday, but I didn't pay attention to the dates of the sale.

I wasn't able to check either, I was in a hurry, but $1 off's going on there right now either way...  Not sure when it ends.  It shouldn't end at all IMO.

That explains why Target near my work raised their prices to $11.29 just before the sale!

Wow...  Well still were $9.99 here so $8.99 ultimately, but yeah...  $11.29.  There isn't any toy in that aisle worth that anymore.

That store only has cloud car pilots, dengar and endor rebels. No wonder they won't sell.

Toys R Us sale, Free Movie Heroes figure with purchase of any Star wars action figure, vehicle or role play toy purchase of $30+

Not that there's a lot of desirable figure from that series...even "free". Maybe you might get lucky and find wave 2.

Don't know if this is the place to post this, but the rumors of the "Legends" assortment being discontinued in Walmart's planogram definitely seems to be referring to the DTF wave of figures and not Movie Heroes.  I hit two different Walmarts this morning that had just "completed" their resets, and there were pegs for CW (2-4), Vintage (2-4), and MH (2-4) in each store.  And, in proving what we have been saying for years, Walmart, instead of actually clearancing the DTF figures off the pegs, had stocked each of the 6-12 pegs full of DTF figures.  I guess it's a good thing that the last vintage wave are official internet exclusives (as opposed to the rest of the year, which has been internet exclusive for all intents and purposes), because there's no way that Walmart is getting anything new now.  All three assortments (theoretically) were at 9.96 in the new reset here, as well (Vintage had, oddly enough, been lagging behind at 8.96 for a few months).

I finally had a chance to see the new Walmart plan-o-gram too last night, and it is different from the one shown over at JTA. This one had 3 pegs for TCW, 3 pegs for Vintage, and only 2 for Legends. There was designated space for the Class I series, but Class II was no longer included.

There was nothing on there about DTF, but as stated above they just fill all the pegs with that garbage anyway so obviously that means nothing to them.

And good luck squeezing any MTT's on that aisle.

Looks like you can print a max of 5 per browser as I got 5 from Safari and 5 from Firefox. I assume I could keep downloading browsers and keep printing but I don't think I'll use 5 let alone 10 before it expires.

It would be nice if TRU got those pilot and Ewok sets so I can use these.
