TVC figures marked down to $4 at WalMart stores in my neck of the woods.  And $4.99 at TRU stores.  Amazingly enough I managed to score a red bandana Kithaba at the TRU clearance price!

That's a nice score.

I have to say the TRU sale has really gotten me back in the game. Randomly went last Sunday and found 2 Dr Evazans on the shelf. Tuesday netted a Wedge amongst random TPM dregs. Thursday there was more TPM and a (ripped card) Barada. Today stopped in on a whim around 2 PM and as I entered the aisle a TRU employee was putting a case on the pegs. Turned out it was the "blu ray" wave so I picked up Cracken and the Mon Cal, two figures I had passed up a year ago due to the price.

They really seem to be moving through some cases out there. I might need to stop in even more often and finally plug those last few gaps in what I've wanted.
I live my life with no regrets...by taking absolutely no risks.

Found a Gammorean Guard and Rebel Fleet Trooper yesterday at TRU, great way to spend ten dollars :)

I found a Gammy too at TRU this week. There was a case or two of the current wave that's shipping. It would be nice if there were more variety, but at $5, they're selling.

50% off clearance at K-mart this week. Includes AT-ST's at $15.50  (Sorry, doesn't included the ewoks and drivers, haven't been clearanced yet.) They ran out online "No longer carry this item", so don't waste your time there.

Funny.  I FINALLY got to a Kmart last week.  I snagged their last ATST at full price along with a few boxes of drivers.  Its not even worth a drive back there to see if they can adjust the price.   :P

AT-ST's at the register.  AT-ST's in clearance aisle.  AT-ST's at the front door. 

I think this sale won't rid them of AT-ST's here.

Last Ewok set was gone.

I got a walker though and plan to custom it up a bit.  Cleaning the damage off the nose for sure, and debating what to do with the feet.  For $15 it's really an outstanding little piece of armor.

I got one today, my first "new" AT-ST (Wal-Marts never got them here, missed the boat on the Target one, waited on this release because of negative stories about the quality). I wish I'd bought all three that were left now. 

They had 2 vintage figures marked down, but scanned them and they were full price, not even their sticker price.  Clone Wars figures from 3 years ago (heavy assault super battle droid, Rex) are still $9.99.

Then I somehow talked myself out of 75% off Valentine's day candy.

Then I got the last 3 pack Droid Set at Target for $7.48 or whatever.

Walmart is going nuts though, I saw 2+ cases of the new "greatest hits" wave at 2 different stores last night. Multiple Aaylas, Noms, RFT's etc. It was cool at first, but now it just makes me bitter that the only 2 TVC I still actually want are nowhere to be found. (Starkiller and Shae) That wave was absolutely a no-show here.

I stopped at two Wal-Marts over the weekend and yeah, lots of remnants of the Evazan/2011 repacks wave, meaning more Qui-Gons on the pegs. ::) Nobody must have told them that they're supposed to be clearancing stuff out. Targets and TRUs here are void of any product save for Clone Wars Anakins and Windus.

I did, however cave and snag another Fordo and Fleet Trooper from Wal-Mart. Of course I keep missing the Gammoreans.

You're truly a member of the New Order.  You have a hardbound copy of the Tarkin Doctrine.
