When they start going over $5.50 I get a little perturbed.

I look at it this way, we got the first 50 plus army builders for about $5. Paying and extra buck for the remaining 6 isn't as bad as it could have been.

A bit of news -

One of our local Targets lowered basic figures back to $5.24.

I've been meaning to mention that Anthony.  But it's not just the Raymer one, but also the San Fernando Target too.  So at least a couple of 'em, and hopefully more soon!  8)

I don't think the prices here have ever changed. They've always stayed at $5.24.

Yeah, our local Targets dropped back to $5.24 this past week as well.  They jumped up to $5.99 for a few weeks, and now back down to $5.24.  Wal-Mart is still sitting at $5.88.  Of course, neither one has anything besides Clone Pilots, Neimodian Warriors, Polis Massan, Mas Ameddas, Palpatines, and Aayla Securas.

Sold out, can't find . . . . man, come to the 2 Walmarts where I opened cases and threw the figures on the pegs.  There were plenty of Grevious and Vader. Man, what somepeople do who make a buck. Tempted to watch that one, and if someone bids, send an email to them and tell them I can get one of each for half of what he bid . . . . joking . . . . no but at least at cost plus shipping.

Same prices here last I saw...Target $5.24 and Wal-Mart $5.28.  Of course, neither has anything of interest right now, but hopefully that changes.

What's bizarre is that all of our local Targets just revised their prices on the ROTS figures this past week, and are now a consistent $5.89 across the board.  Bizarre, since they were fairly evenly split between $5.24 and $5.99 just a week ago.  The WMs around here are still bouncing around between $5.24 and $5.88 too.  Wish these stores could just settle on a freaking price already!

And where the hell are the Target clearance sales?!  They're a bit overdue to run a markdown, and that's what they're going to have to do to rid themselves of the 10 million Nemoidian Guards warming their pegs right now.  Unless Hasbro's just going to take them all back and repaint them for that Final 12 version of the figure.  Hopefully that's the case, and that they're not actually going to put out even more of these guys...

Agreed about the sales. There are sooooooo many pegwarmers I want to get on clearance.

Also, I've noticed that the cheapest online figure prices have gone up to about $8 a figure. :o
