My WM's were $5.24 and now they are $5.88 - just like selling crack, they get ya hooked  cheap and then up the price.

Target was $5.99 and then they went to $5.24 to keep in line with WM, but I fear they will go back to $5.99.

I don't bother with KM and TRU these days....

We've received a few reports that figures will be going on sale at Target next week to coincide with the movie's release week.

A few things of note:

$4.99 basic figures
$14.49 electronic lightsaber
$17.99 lego starfighter & vulture droid (15% off selected lego)
$5.99 micro vehicles

Maybe it's not much of a deal ($0.25 per basic figure), but it's better than nothing!  Check your Target ads on Sunday!

I just got my Sunday paper (hooray for being unemployed!) and there was a K-Mart sales circular included.  Now, "sale" is a relative term with K-Mart, so I'm just reporting what I see here folks.

-Basic figures: $5.44
-12" Anakin/Vader $34.99
-DV Voice Changer Helmet $24.99
-Lego Anakin Starfighter or TIE Fighter $14.99
-Anakin's Starfighter (Hasbro) or Lightsaber $16.99
-20% off Star Wars board games (Monopoly is $23.99; TP DVD is $39.99; Risk and the Chess set are $19.99)
-TPM and AOTC DVDs for $12.99 each
-OT DVD $45.99
-ROTS PS2 or XBox game $49.99
-ROTS and ROTS Lego GBA games $29.99
-ROTS Lego PS2 or XBox game $39.99
-ROTS Soundtrack CD with DVD $11.99

Other "special offers" include $5.00 off instantly when you buy any 2 M&M varieties (21.3 oz) and a Super Deformed figure (ends 05/21/05) and $10 Star Wars gift card by mail when you buy all three of the following:

1.  Pepsi products (any 24 pack or two 12 packs)
2.  Any Lays brand chips 11.5 oz or larger
3.  $10 worth of Star Wars Hasbro toys or games

This offer is valid through 05/28/05, and the cards pictured are of the droids, Yoda, and Vader.

They also have this kid who looks like he's drunk wearing a beach towel (yes, you heard me right) that has a hood on it.  I don't get it either, but it's there. 

Target also has an insert, so here's the deal on that.

-Once again, a rather drunken child is holding a few figures in his hands and they are listed as $4.99 each

Other things listed:

-TP DVD game $39.99
-SW Risk $18.99
-Vader Voice Changer #22.99
-Electronic lightsaber (Windu's is pictured) $14.49
-ROTS Xbox/PS2 game $49.99 each
-Lego Jedi Starfighter $17.99
-Exclusive Micro sets $5.99
-and they are once again advertising the Vader gift card

So there you go folks!

A quick update on that Target sales circular.  Apparently (and this might vary from store to store), the sale extends to every SW item they have in the toy aisle.  When I was at Target this morning (once again missing the Clone #41; thank you solitary blonde Wookiee for taunting me), they had the Battle Arenas on sale for just under 17 bucks, the 12" dolls were in that same range, and every item in the aisle had one of those Target "SALE!" stickers on the front of the peg/shelves.

So if there is something you've been holding out on at Target, now might be a good time to pick it up.

I was tempted to repurchase the entire Deluxe line today at Target after realizing they're all on sale for $8.49. Alas, I am too lazy to do that and then come back with my old reciepts. It was nice to get a couple of Clones and a Vulture Droid for the price, though.

After doing quite a bit of hunting this morning it appears Target has seriously stocked for the sale. The latest waves have been hitting relentlessly.

Thanks Jared! I missed that the deluxe were on sale. I'll have to bring in my recent recipts to get the adjustment.
