Not sure if it is specific to my store or a broader price change, but the Walmart near me has all 6" Black Series for $15 now...

That reminds me...did we ever get any more info on the next Walgreens exclusive figure out of sdcc? Wasn't it supposed to be a tweaked Vader or Emperor?

I am sure the answer will come as a complete surprise to you - Walgreens' toy buyer Steven Anne said on Twitter, "9/4/2015. That is all."  :P

So you'll have to wait a few more weeks to find out if the rumored 6" Emperor Palpatine with force lightnin is true or not...

WalgreensBLOW!!!!111!!! or something or other... 

Seriously though, 9/4 is going to be weird if these places manage not to pee out everything first.  That'll be the big if.  But Walgreens, if they'd never said anything, who'd think to even go there on 9/4?   ::)

Well, we're all getting old enough now that the prescription crowd and SW collectors might be blending into one.

Nice score, Nick. My area Walgreens only carry the shampoo bottle figures.  No 4", no 6" despite having space for them.

I guess I'll have to wait until September 4th

This is true.  People will need their BP meds that day either for anger or excitement I suppose.

Picked up a spare Han and Luke for $9 each at Walmart today. Sadly the price had not dropped  further on the deluxe sets though, they were still $30.

Grabbed the two remaining speeder bike sets I could find from Target on clearance for $17.48 each. Figure they will not last long at that price. Still think Jabba will linger though.

Found a new collector shop local to me.  And they're kind of cool!  Their pricing was reasonable and I was able to get a Commander Cody for $22 and a deluxe Han & Tauntaun for $35.  Not terrible in my book.
