Sweet deal!  Hey, is this nationwide or just in your area?

Targets around here have been restocking... Han, Chewie, Djas Purh, Palpatines, Wattos, and many other peg warmers.  >:(
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

I was able to pick up a Clone Trooper the other day at one of our local Targets, but that was about it.

To my knowledge nationwide.  On the west coast, Target has been one of the only places I have found 03 figures.

I'll second that! We got  a nice new load of Lott Dod, Watto, and Teemto.

The sale sounds interesting.  I'd personally like to nab 2 of each E2 airspeeder for some fanfic custom work...  Wonder what my Local KB's are stocking these days?

Since they jacked up prices I haven't stopped in one...  Nothing new there anyway.

Well, this is definitely some much needed clearance sales news.  Not only to pick up a few extra cheap figures for our armies, but even moreso (obviously) to clear out some of the pegwarmers that have been hanging FAR too long, and to make room for the poor 2003 stock that has scarcely seen the light of day yet!  And maybe even an Ephant Mon or two here and there!

Like Matthew already mentioned above, Target is the ONLY place I've ever seen any 2003 product yet this year.  But we're still way behind and there's still too much old crap cluttering the shelves and pegs there.  Hopefully the clearance sales will generate some solid interest and folks will snatch that old stuff up!

Good move on KB's part as well, after that completely nonsensical move of actually raising their prices by a buck on all of their pegwarming garbage...   ::)

And yes, these should both be nationwide promotions!   :)

yeah, wtf did KB raise their figure price? At mine it was crazy. One week they'd be $4.99.. .Then they'd be $5.50... then they'd have a "sale" and they would be back at $4.99. The past two months, while they have gotten NOTHING ne in, they have had their prices at a firm $5.99.


On a side note... I scored the electronic 12" Jango and obi for $10 each yesterday (as in sunday). I was going to buy 4 different Action Fleet but they were not part of the mark down

I also noticed that Kbkids.com has the 12 inch clone "red/yellow" half price.  I have yet to see those marked down.  They also have the Gunships for $19.99.  Not too bad.

So what that means is we are 100% guaranteed not to see any new figures until after the 19th.   :)

Well, I stopped by my Target yesterday to pick up 3 MOTU figures for my Free Moss Man and saw...pegs upon pegs of Vader, Luke, Mace and Jango Arena, I mean there were 50 of each and they weren't moving.  4 days into the sale and the things still aren't going.  Hasbro f'd up distribution AGAIN!
