Dammit Jeff!  You need to get started on controlling the inventory!  ;D

Just a head's up that Walgreens will be doing a special one day only promotion tomorrow (FRI) where you can get 40% off any single item. Works out to $12 a pop for any Vintage 6" you might happen to find out there, if you need 'em.  :)

I don't think there is any kind of code or coupon either, so not sure how it works. I'm pretty sure you need a Walgreens card though.

The Jedha Revolt 4-pack has been marked down to clearance price, and is now $12.99.  I ordered another for the Hovertank Driver, and I might try to make a custom Benthic Two-Tubes out of Edrio.

Too bad they never made the tank.

There's a lot of stuff they could have/should made in addition to the tank. TIE fighter and Blue Leader X-Wing among them.

Thanks for the heads up on this...I had been on the fence about how much I "needed" this set, but at that price I couldn't resist!

Now to get busy building the Sears-style cardboard backdrop that should have been included with this in the first place...

4 figures for $13 is a pretty good bargain these days... even if they are all 5 poa.

It would be nice if they get around to making the tank at some point.  But in general, I get the sense that we might be in a transitional period right now.  Will the re-launch of the Vintage Collection mean that we'll get well articulated versions of all of the characters in this set?  Possibly.  But I'm skeptical about a lot of things with the Star Wars line in general right now.

I wouldn't count on any of the 3 exclusives getting super articulated any time soon except maybe the tank driver. Likely Rogue One will be pushed to the back as Last Jedi and Han Solo movie figures take up new slots.

The timing is right.  We're 7 weeks away from the launch of the TLJ line.

Brickseek has shown the Target sale prices in effect since Tuesday...but they only just went into effect today.  :)

The nice thing is they are apparently dumping everything from the storeroom onto the shelves in conjunction with the sale, so I was able to get 3 Thrawns they had just put out at one store for $3.98 each.  8)

I've literally been to five different stores now where all they have for 6" is Jyn and Cassian. I don't even want those for $5 a pop.

It's definitely strange how the clearance prices can vary.  This is what I spotted on clearance at Target this morning:

TFA 3.75" figures - $3.84
R1 3.75" figures - $5.58
Speeder vehicles - $9.98
U-wing - $24.98
TIE Striker - $27.98
12" TFA droid 3-pack - $14.98
