At 15.00 I would pick them up, at 25.00 it is much less likely. Ill try the DCPI trick and see what happens. Thanks for posting it.

Hate to quote myself, but took a shot today with the DCPI number. Got them for 15.00 each. The woman who helped was so unhappy to go in the back for me.

That's good man...  They rang up $15?  With the 087-06-1172 number?  I guess prices are quite all over with these sets.

Pick label on the case will have the new DPCI. Barcode on the item will be tied to the old DPCI

They rang up at 15.00. The DCPI showed them at 25.00. I took a shot at the register and 15.00 it was.

I called around for these and although there were in the system in general, no one could determine if they were actually in the store.

Tried the DCPI trick last night but they weren't in the system. Still have two local stores to try out I guess

they are at my store but they didn't have a shelf space.  I noticed that the dpci was for $24.99.  I was going to ask the guy for help but when I saw the price I thought nah I will wait.  Then I second guessed myself and went back and was going to see if he would pull them and I saw my arch-nemesis Target employee  who was a Supervisor that was probably going to intercept - so I am waiting

If you go to one store they should be able to check quanities at every other local store as well. This is what I did, only to find out there are none in my area anywhere.  :(

I picked up both sets yesterday using the DPCI #, which worked like a charm.  The employee was nice and didn't hesitate to pull one of each from the stockroom.

Woo Hoo!  Not only did I find these, but they rang up for 5.99!  No lie.  I got both for 12.00 and change. Must have been a big mistake somewhere.  I had noticed a clearance sign in the rack, but assumed it was for older product.

And I don't feel guilty at all.  Hasbro and Target have done such a crap job this year that I don't feel any remorse.  In fact, I was so happy I gave a guy who was in the parking lot with his wife and kids holding an "I lost my job" sign 10.00.

You should go back and grab me a set and then ship them to me loose so I can return my two sets that I haven't opened yet that cost me $27 each!

You know, I went back thinking I could help someone out, and there were no more.

I managed to get them today for $14.99.

Oddly enough, they didn't charge me sales tax?

The total was $29.98.

All sorts of weird errors coming up with these things, it was really weird - unless there's some sort of tax holiday that applies to toys this week.   :P 

I think this marks the first figures I've bought at retail since the Episode I wave.

I went to a different Target today and had them pull the 3 packs for me there too (I am lucky lately I guess). When the guy looked up the DPCI to pull them from the back room it said they were $24.99 there.  When I scanned them on the machine after he brought them out it said "item not found".  And then when I went up to purchase them at the cashier it said $14.99    I walked away happy and returned the two I got at the other store on the way home.

I am much more satisfied with my cost per figure/purchase now.
