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.

Has anyone noticed that their Target boarding on Walmart stupid for this current sale? In a Target both in NC and in CA, I noticed that the regular basic figure price was $4.88. The sale/price cut price was $5.03 and the actual scanned price was $4.03. You would think someone would pay attention.

My Target has had them at $4.79 for a while and dropped them to $4.31 in the last day or two. I got 5 figs for that sale price today. I've bought a bunch in the last couple weeks, and I'm going to take my receipts in for the difference next time I go. It'll add up.

At the Targets around here, everything appears to be included in the 10% off sale mentioned in the ad, EXCEPT for the exclusives - Mustafar figures and Battle Packs.

I bought in my receipts today and got a nice price adjustment on the 15 basic figures I've purchased over the last 2 weeks!   ;D

I just got the final 5 figures at TArget for $4.31 a piece. How sweet is that?! I got six figures for 28 bucks.

How long is the Target sale? I've gotta get my receipts in there before it's over.

Bah, I found it. My weekly ad says Oct 22.

As of today Walmarts in Utah are not offering the deluxe on sale. They are still $9.99.

Is Wal-Mart (brick and mortar) back up to $5.88?

The only reason I ask is because WM.com has their price up as well...

Nice info JayDouble, thanks for the heads up on that.  Something to look forward to I guess...  The $8 sabers is a good deal for stocking up for the kids.  I may get them those for X-Mas.

The BOGO at KM isn't bad either given that they've had some fairly decent figures around but at shittacular prices.  Good to know where to go that day.  Fortunately KM's are close enough that a Black Friday trip isn't a rough one for me...  Wal-Mart not so much.   :-\
