Basic figures at my Wal-Mart just went back down to $4.77. Hopefully it is a sign of good things to come.

Wal-Mart just opened a brand new 24hr Super Center about 10minutes from my house.  Not only did they have a great selection of #45-56 (only a few clone repaints though  :(), but they also had the $4.77 price that Ryan mentioned.

I think it's pretty safe that Star Wars will have a strong presence in the toy aisle through the Holiday season.  Then, just like every post-movie year stuff will drop off from Jan-Mar only to pick up again in Spring.  I think the 4" line will be safe through next summer at least, but depending on what Hasbro has planned for next year and how well it sells, anything can happen next fall...

Ah, $4.77... the wonderful price that makes me feel that for $1.00 cheaper a figure, I suddenly have a lot more money.

Oh yeah, a return to the $4.77ish pricepoint would definitely be welcome.  Hopefully that will become a "nationwide" price, and continue into the Saga Collection in 2006.  With tightening up the budget, a dollar break on each figure always helps too ;).

I don't shop at WM if I can help it, but hopefully this means Target and TRU will drop theirs back to $4.99--or more likely, refrain from raising them to $6.99. Even holding at $5.99 would still be a good thing.

Target should drop their price, but I can't see TRU doing so. It's not their MO. Sure they did it to compete on 4/2 and the weeks following, but that's an unusual move for them.

I agree.  It is more likely that TRU will hike up the price.

I rarely shop at Wal*Mart so this isn't too bad for me.
