I discovered Some Great new Fodder today in the Target Clearence  Section.


Some of these Dino warriors have Great pieces of removable Armor and the Dinosaur Esque Creatures they are Packed w/ would make Great star Wars Beast for Dioramas and Photo Novels.
Although this line is a smaller Scale than the Star Wars line the Villians of this line have Oversized Torsos and arms that work well w/ the 4" Scale.  I purchased One Today That Had a Removable Shoulder Pouldron, Forarm and Leg Armor, all Compatable w/ the 4" Scale.

These are pretty cool, I've been looking at them since whenever they came out.  I'm pretty sure they sold horribly so I wouldn't expect to see any of these after they clearance out.
I was going to pick up a few sets to make some more beast-riders (like my clone mountie) or for the extra beasts, but I never got around to it.  Maybe now that they're on clearance I'll snag a few.
Do you remember how much they were on clearance for?

It's hilarious how so many of us think about the same things here.  I've been eyeing those things for a few months now, waiting for them to go on clearance.  There are some ones with bigger creatures too, that originally retailed at $14.99.  Finally today I go by Target and check to see if they have any, and they are all sold out.

I've been watching those since day one too, knowing they'd hit clearance sooner or later. The creatures are great, and the armor would go well on some Gammoreans or the like. Great minds think alike.  ;D

It's weird, right before the clearances, my Target had pegs and pegs of those Dino-Riders things (it didn't look like they had sold a single one), but now that they've been putting stuff on clearance, my Target is cleaned out.  Very strange...

From what I recall, the heads and torsos would be fine 1:18th scale customs, the legs are very underscaled and the arms have limited articulation, so they might not be that useful.

Articulation isn't always important  ;D. who knows i may just use the lower arms for a jedi or a senator  ;)

I saw one of these at a Target today.  It was marked for $1.75.  I almost bought it but the lines were long and it wasn't one with a decent size figure (smaller body good guy)

I hope to be able to hit a Target out in the ghetto tomorrow.   They always seem to have some oddball stuff like this in stock, and I might even find some ROTS clearance stuff there.

I came across a single dino figure today for three bucks...but they did have 4 oversized wing ties marked down to $20!! Of course, I snapped them up.

I'm going to do the same as Chewie and check the ghetto (or here in So. Cal, the Barrio) Targets and see if I can score some more. I want the big dinos for mounts.

Kay-Bee carries these as well, so if they're getting blown out, I'm sure they'll end up there in bulk.

I've looked and looked for TIE's and came up empty so far, that was a good deal.  I was hoping to get another myself but to no avail.
