2 for $11 isn't bad. It's better than KB at the momment. I'm also wondering if K-Mart has much to re-stock with. I would think that they were carefull not to over order this time and didn't anticipate that these would actually sell.

As you probably read, our last Kmart completely missed the ROTS release and a week later still doesn't have any rots figures. They are still trying to get rid of three bespin leias and a wookie senator.

Kmart sucks.

ahh TRU far behind as always. there sale prices don't even match the regular price of the figures at most stores, and the prices on other items just match the price of those items elsewhere. no wonder TRU was on the verge of bankruptcy, they can't comprehend how to compete with other stores...

I didn't know if this had been posted in another forum yet (and again, the idea of "Sale Price" is relative here), but KB is having an online sale where if you buy 3 ROTS figures, you can get the fourth free.  Of course, this still comes out to what you'd pay for four figures at any other retailer, but it's still worth a look. 

KB's "Sale"

I did notice that they had Mas Amedda listed, so it's possible that they will have/have already had and sold out of the wave he's a part of at some point. 

KB also has the Anakin/Dooku and Sidious/Mace Battle Arenas for 19.99 each, if anyone is interested in those.

Weird Amazon.com release dates/free shipping deals...
« Reply #21 on: April 12, 2005, 11:14 PM »
I posted this in the "Evolutions" thread too...

Amazon.com has both the Anakin and Clone Trooper EVOLUTION sets listed as coming out on FRIDAY, April 15th.  They also have all 3 of the new Unleashed sets -- Vader, Sidious vs. Yoda, and that Sith Chick as coming out the same day.

And...all have FREE SHIPPING right now.  Actually lots of Star Wars stuff has free shipping right now...

Very weird.  Probably just an error...they'll probably change the dates this week but I've got them pre-ordered just to be safe...

Cost of ROTS basic figures in your area.
« Reply #22 on: May 8, 2005, 08:27 PM »
Since midnight madness I had not gone any farther than 15 minutes to hunt for Star Wars figures.  Today I went to Champaign and at Target & Wal-Mart the basic figures are $5.24.  In my area an hour south they are $5.88 at Wal-Mart and I don't have a Target around here.  The difference may seem small, but if you buy 4 figures that's a $2.56 difference and definitely adds up.  How much do they cost where you live?

$5.24 at the Targets and Walmarts in my area.  $5.99 at TRU.  I don't even bother shopping at K-Mart or KB because they're around $6.99 or so.

TRU  - $9.99
Sears - $9.99
Zellers - $8.92
Walmart $7.84

So yeah, Canada does suck, though that Wally price is around $7.15 USD after the taxes.

Every WM and Target I've been in lately has had the figures at 5.24.  K-Mart continues to stick to their 6.99 price and I have yet to see any of their figures (which they stocked two weeks ago for the first time since a lone case of Collection 1 on April 2nd) move with the exception of the Red Royal Guard.

Back when Target was having their 5 dollar sale that first week, the WM next door marked figures down to 4.94, but as soon as they went back to 5.99 at Target, so they went to 5.24 at WM.  Strangely, when Target dropped theirs, the WM next door didn't follow suit.

Something else I noticed was that TRU.com has raised their figure prices up to 6.99 while all the store reports still have them at 5.99.  For a while there it looked like the Collection 1 figures were still 5.99 and the Collection 2 were 6.99, but several times lately, I've seen the former go up to 6.99 as well.

$5.99 at Toys R Us.

$5.24 at Target, although I'm not sure if the price cut is permanent. (was previously $5.99)

Either $5.88 or $5.24 at Wal-Mart (I don't shop there much so I don't remember).

Others are $6.99 and up.

KM is as much as $7.99 I think some places.  Outrageous.  I have found that K-Mart will, at times, pricematch.  They fight you on it toof and nail, but they will pricematch if you raise enough hell.

I swear they hate to see me show up there anymore with receipts or flyers from other stores, haha.

My parents are a bit older...  Like to take my mother on senior citizen discount day and get a little extra % off the figures too.  Don't tell mom I let that leak here though or she'll be PO'd.  :-X

My KM's actually put product out early and then sold through a lot of it.  Funny that they got a jump on everyone that way.  They are still pretty low on most figures and vehicles as well, and haven't overdone ordering it seems.  Maybe they will drop prices and be a good place to shop again sometime.

My WM's, Targets, and TRU's are the same as everyone else though...  $5.24 or $5.99 at TRU.  TRU I rarely go to since they shot themselves in the foot on 4/2 stuff, and aren't really giving me much reason to go there.

KB just flat out sucks.  Everything is outrageously priced.  No wonder that store is destined to be closed.  They earned it.
