They don't have anything particularly rare, but KidsWarehouse currently has some discounted TVC & Black Series figures, including a few TVC figures at $6.99 & 501st Clones for under $10.

See?????

I ordered that a couple of hours ago, and already got a notification that it will be delivered today.  I guess having an Amazon DC in town isn't that bad.

Sale? I believe two “sales” in a row is approaching clearance territory.

The Echo Base Rebel set is one of the 4-packs that I was less enthusiastic about when it was announced. And it has to do with the timing. The reissue of the VC068 Echo Base Trooper seemed a little too close to the release of this set. There can actually be too much of a good thing!

This might also point out one thing about the troop builder 4-packs that's lost on Hasbro - WE KNOW THAT EACH OF THESE 4-PACKS IS COMPRISED OF PREVIOUSLY RELEASED TVC FIGURES. That takes away some of the excitement of a release like this. Collectors who do troop building are already ahead of the curve on Hasbro when it comes to new troopers. Witness the collector that buys solid cases of troopers when they're initially released.

Perhaps it's time to reverse the formula? Release a 4-pack first, and then a slightly revised version as a TVC carded figure down the line. The re-use of tooling is still there. And creative re-use for a basic carded figure can proceed from there.

I bought a bunch of extras of these around Black Friday or Christmas when they were similarly priced and just don't need more.

The price is right for sure, but I have two Deathtrooper packs and two Shoretrooper packs in a cabinet just waiting to get used somewhere...

They only have Hoth Soldiers left but you can stack EXTRA25 with SHIPMAGIC and get four of those sets for $89.

Targets around here have Darktroopers on sale for $18.54 (through 6/3/23). I passed today but may have to pick a few more up at that price.

That’s basically the price I had mine all preordered at.  I bought 12 and once I had them all set up, it felt like too many.

Amazon has the 40th Anniversary Speeder Bike listed at $30.00 and I’ve seen pictures of Walmarts discounting them as well… I of course had just bought another one at full price last week and already opened it.

Just came here to post that... for $30 I bought another one.  Every time they go less than the currently lowest I'll buy another one.

That's my policy too. And kind of a fun game with a prize at the end (that I have to pay for).

That is a pretty sweet deal.  If I didn't already have piles of speederbikes I'd probably get more.  I'm also assuming this will get re-released with Endor Luke, Leia, Ewok, etc.
