TRU sale seems to be 50% Legacy packaged Battle Packs, they just refused to make their ad clear this time. If there's a price scanner, I usually check items on it before I head to the register.

I haven't been around a TRU in a bit but people reported getting pretty much all BP's for 50% off I thought?

I was there earlier this week and I believe it is just the Leagacy packaging.  They had several of the slim/blue packages in a separate spot with no 50% off signage.  I did not price check any of them, but that would be a tough sell to the staff given that they look very different from what is in the ad.

TRU online only has the Legacy packs 50%, I checked that last sunday and assume in-store was the same way.

Wow, I don't think my TRU's even had Legacy sets around...  Seriously, I think most of the older packaging was gone.  Hmmm,  Well I guess the sale was good for some, not others.

For what it's worth though, the email we got pertained to legacy sets too...  They just wuoldn't let anything go unless it was that Hoth Bike set, which didn't last long anywhere once a sale was in place.

My local Target had a sign out on the shelves tonight in the SW section stating something to the effect that they were out of the Arena sets so as a raincheck they were offering Clone Wars vehicles at half price - $13.49!

All they had was a Hyena Bomber and an AAT repaint, but dang that's a good price.

That really is...  Nice stuff.  May have to hit Target tomorrow, though I wager that store still has sets.  I got the last Coleman Trebor set...  I was happy at that.

Another 2-day sale at TRU...

Today and tomorrow, ALL Star Wars, Thor, Marvel Universe, G.I. Joe, Spiderman, etc. are 2-For-$11.99 which isn't bad, especially on Vintage Collection.  Happy hunting!

The signage on the shelves in my store this morning said $10.99 too.

That is odd...  I was going off my local sale ad, and $11.99 it is...  I was thinking maybe I'd done a typo (Jim did the story but I changed some stuff), but nope.  Go figure.  ::)

Nice. I scored the Target TIE Fighter (small wing) last year at a similar offer since they were out of the remote Hailfire Droid that was on sale. (Some chucklehead is trying to sell that TIE on ebay for $100!)

Unfun surprise today at Wal-Mart, Clone Wars and Legends figures have been rolled-up to $7.88, the weeks of $6.50 were fun whilst they lasted.  :(

Yup, saw the same thing, and just like the at my store the pegs are overflowing and not really looking like they'll move now.

My store was doing really wella t $6.50 though.  The best stuff was gone...  CW Clones, bounty hunters, and LEgends army builders in demand like Snowtroopers and BD's went fast.  The pegs were about half full or less at $6.50 and today  they're overflowing.  I doubt they'll move much now either.
