Fun tonight to find out that my TRU is apparantly the only one on Earth NOT selling B1G1 Free SW vintage figures. :)

The discount didn't apply to them it seemed, just MH and CW.  Oh joy.

That sucks! Look at the bright side, there is nothing to buy anyway.

There were a couple things I'd have gotten, but yeah, no...   :-\  TRU's one of my least favorite places.  It's a trip to any of them for me, and they've basically taken up the KayBee mantle of overpricing stuff...  That's why I miss KayBee haha.

  I've seen evidence of Wave 4, 5, and 6 there this year...  That's more than I can say for almost any other store than K-Mart.


You found evidence alright.  Evidence of a crime.  And that crime is poor (or in many cases absent altogether) distribution.

I don't understand the comment on the front page about getting a price adjustment from Target if you bought a Clone Wars Dropship recently...wouldn't that only apply if you had bought two?

Yeah, basically...  I figured people could figure out on their own that they need to meet the requirements, but judging by what I've read lately, many have found more than one.

Thanks, yeah,  I wasn't sure it would work if you had bought them on separate tickets, but as it turns out, it does. I took my receipts in tonight and they couldn't do a price adjustment per se, but did run them through as returns and re-purchases on the same ticket to get the deal to kick in. So I got about $8.50 back.

While I was there I picked up another Dropship along with another Darth Maul BP which was also on sale for 17.99. The nice thing is, you can mix and match any items you want, they just take 50% off whatever the cheaper item is. So those both came in at about $26 total. =WIN! :)

BTW our readers maybe noticed that TRU.com is running a 3-day sale, B1G1 50% off (guess Target lit a fire) and this one is better than the B1G1 40% off all around...  The latter you could only use once per order, I found that out mid-order of some speederbikes...  The current sale lets you stack the deal so you can buy more than 2 of an item, plus free shipping if you order enough.

A decent deal as, for me anyway, the bikes were under $18 each...  I can live with that for sure since I'm getting some extras of this.

My TRU has the Ewoks/Pilots sticker on the shelves for $39.99. Neither set was present. Still that seems extremely expensive.

They had so Angry Birds Star Wars sets. These include the early bird set, the Jabba the hut set and the ATAT set. Speederbikes were also present. There were about three dozen pod racer sets. No wonder TRU never stocks exclusives.

That's been the price on these sets Phruby...  I'm surprised you've not seen them yet, I take it?

Wow...  Even here they started sitting a while ago.  Not long after the 2nd shipment of them hit they pretty much hit the "$40 is too much" wall.  Cali sure has a lotta free cash to spend. :)
