everything around here is stuck at $5.88. >:( I guess the good ole days of 4 figures for $21 including tax is long gone. :-\

I don't think you guys realize how good you've got it.

North of the border, a good deal is $8.97 at Zellers, but TRU is $9.99.   >:(

I think the best deal we've had so far is $7.88 at Wal-Mart for a while.

Walmart started to put some stuff on clearance and the first was those battle arena things.  They had about 5 of each, well only 3 of Obi-Wan and Guard, and they were marked down to 13.

If they go down to single digit price then I'll get some.

If those go really cheap, I'd get two to attach to Mustafar. I'd take the game handles off. Poor Mustafar really needs some meat on its bones.

I picked up the Mace/Sidious and Dooku/Anakin Battle Arenas tonight on clearance. Last of each.

$3.


No Obi-Wan/Bodyguard in sight. I also found a 12" Anakin-Vader at another WM for $20. I'll be picking that one up this weekend if it's still there.

I'd like to nab them cheap for my gf's kids, as they're good for that, but I know I was NOT interested in these personally.  Not great sets.  The force flippers of their day I guess.   :-\

I got the Sidious/Mace one at the same WM as Ben, and it's good for people interested in scene-specific dioramas (plus, it's $3).  I got a Saga Pilot Obi Wan cloak on Mace, and posed him exactly as he was when he was about to bring the hammer down on Palpy (only to have Anakin jack him) and the Palpatine is good for the moment where he leaps from his seat and lands in a crouch in front of the four jedi.  Plus his head comes off pretty easy, and you can stick the 'normal' one from the basic Palpy on there.

Target's price for basic figures has shot up to $5.89 and I think WM is down to $4.77. 

Doesn't really matter here - we've yet to receive anything at WM since Midnight Madness.  Serious.

Same here.  I'm waiting for a 2 for 1 deal to clean up on wookies and clone pilots.

I ventured into a K-Mart store the other day and noticed figs selling for the great price of...(drumroll please)...$6.99.  I laughed out loud a litte bit.  I did see a Green Clone Commander there though.

I haven't been in many Targets recently, but one of them here in MN has cut basic figures to $4.79! Mostly pegwarmer city around here (Neimoidian warriors, red Palpatine, gray Palpatine, clone pilots, etc.), but frankly I still need several of those "older" figures so this is a good time to try to catch up--particularly if other Targets get on board.

Both Wal-Mart and Target have cut their prices back recently, with $4.77 at WM and $4.89 at Target last time I was there.  Anything under $5 is always welcome to me, and really helps to make things more affordable overall.
