The thing that's been making me scratch my head lately is the seemingly random markdowns at Wal-Mart. While on a trip the other day, I stopped at a WM about 40 minutes from home and they had figures marked at 5.88 still, with a little "As Advertised" sticker on the front of the pegs. I was confused since I thought it was 4.77 in the ad, but sure enough, they had a clipping of the exact ad I saw (4.77) but with a 5.88 price listed.
Target finally marked their figures down here to 4.89 to compete with Wal-Mart, but K-Mart's still stuck at 6.99 and they ain't moving. The last time I was in the "local" TRU, they still had pegs upon pegs of Bail Organa and Mon Mothma, so I'd say they are still in the same boat.
I fully expect figure prices to be back up to and possibly over 6 bucks by the time TSC 2006 is released.
Just an FYI that Amazon is currently offering free shipping on a bunch of stuff if anyone has the cash and is looking to save gas hunting some of this stuff down:
Obi-Wan Jedi Starfighter - Blue/Utapau version
If anybody takes advantage of this, do post if the sticker sheet inside was correct or if it is still the incorrect Anakin sticker sheet. And yes, I am still harping on that.
