General Rieekan watch at RiteAid
« on: March 25, 2012, 01:14 PM »
General Rieekan is the oldest figure on the shelves of our local RiteAid in Chino Hills, CA. His current list price is $12.99. Will keep updating this thread until he sells. Currently he has been there for six years and no clearance in sight!

Sweet Jebus...that is a long time.  I found Episode I stuff at a local small drug store 3 years ago, Band Aids and Party Favors IIRC

What's crazy is they had the exact same figure at the Walgreen's close to my old house, at least up until a few months ago...I have not been by there in awhile. Would not surprise me at all if he was still there though.

The weird thing is that up until a few years ago that same RiteAid had a POTF2 8D8 for $10.99 with a Thriftys price sticker!

Rite Aid here has a C-3PO with ewok throne in Saga 06 packaging for some insane price.

Very surprising, buying the ice cream, I mean. I thought Rite Aid's prices on everything were high.

A scoop of ice cream isn't bad.

I went back last saturday. The general is still there guarding the ice cream.

Sad to report that the Rite-Aid near my workplace no longer has the C-3PO with Ewok throne. Was it bought? Did its card finally rot away? It's been months since I've checked.

Now the oldest SW figure is Clone Wars Trooper Denal.  They also still have Heavy Duty and Ripcord from Rise of Cobra.

Funny they avoided making a new Cloud Car for years, saying it wouldn't appeal to the public, but it's the pilot who stuck around.

Forgot to write about this  but someone actually bought old General Rieekan for $13.99 at RiteAid. Seven years is a long time to warm a peg. Just ask Stinky Pete.
