This morning I saw 3 pegs at Target...

TVC Figures = $12.99
Koska Reeves = $13.99
Migs Mayfield = $14.99

And there was a mix of "Obi Wan Kenobi" show figures, Migs, and Koska spread out over all 3.

I finally got into a Target today after vacation and saw the same thing. Plus an $11.99 peg for Retro figures and a $17.99 peg for the Retro Proto Chewie.

Like Nick said... what a ****-show. They just need a single price for 5 POA Retro figures and a single price for TVC figures. It's super confusing for the average employee / customer. The cards look the same, and it is far too easy for people to mix them all up. Unless they plan on giving Migs, Koska, and Axe their own pegs for a few months, it also seems like a total waste of shelf space. (Not that the SW pegs usually have much on them around here...)

The animated Droids figures or Deluxe figures I get, at least the packaging is substantially different enough that they feel different.

It looks like the Imperial Troop Transport is currently on sale for $53.30 on Amazon. (Jeff feel free to replace that with an affiliate link)

The Nevarro Cantina as well as the Retro Collection have hit clearance at GameStop stores.  If they have a yellow price tag the price is an additional 25% off of the marked price.  I also used my monthly $5 coupon on the Cantina and it came up to $33 and change.

Amazon Prime Deals are up for at least 2 x TVC items


Star Wars The Vintage Collection The Bad Batch Special 4-Pack - $36.49

Star Wars The Vintage Collection Imperial TIE Fighter - $57.99

After last night's episode of Andor, I'm trying to talk myself out of buying a couple more TIE Fighters.

I don’t think we’ve ever seen the cockpit of a TIE Fighter so well before this new episode.  It was really remarkable.  And humanizing, too, because the pilots seemed less two dimensional than they have in other shows and movies.

There are still a few Migs Mayfeld's hanging out at Targets around here in Denver. The clearance price has dropped all the way down to $4.49 :o

I couldn't pass up a nice army builder at that price so I decided to pick up another one while I was picking up two of the Morak Fett's... The cashier ended up ringing them all up with the Migs barcode and I got all three figures for a whopping grand total of $14.45  :-X

I have yet to see a Morak Fett on the pegs.  Luckily, I have two waiting for me in Florida.  I'll finally be there permanently next week.

I would have gotten a set at that price, but it looks like it's back to normal now.
