I think when they are marking the clearance the stuff gets bounced around a little.  They probably toss it in a cart (damage), then toss something else on top of it (damage), then slap it around while they put that red clearance sticker on (damage) before carefully placing it in a perfect front facing and orderly spot on the shelves.  Then some kid rifles through and knocks them on the ground (damage).  The 3 I got this weekend were in pretty good shape.

Crazy clearance sales at Walgreens stores. They were priced pretty high before, but phase 2 TBS 3.75" figures are being clearanced out for $1.38 each.  I picked up another of the ROTJ R5 units.

Nice! I'm hitting a bunch on my way home.

And yet, for some reason they refuse to put the GoT figures on clearance despite the fact these have been gethering dust for months now.  ::)

Thanks for the tip, Nick.  I hit a few today at lunch but didn't find any left at my closest three Walgreens.  :(

They were 40-60% off at the stores I hit today...  well, I should say Tyrion was, since he was the only one I saw.  About $8-9 each for the most part.

I picked up a Vizam,  R5-D4, and Yoda for $1.19 each after hitting a few different Walgreens. Most of the locations had none at all. Glad to have found what little I did.

TRU stores are running a BOGO sale on TFA 3.75" figure packs.  The deal is Buy one, get one 40% off.

From the wording on the peg tags I think this promotion includes 3.75" basic figures and the Armor Up assortment.  And IIRC this sale is running through 9/12.

Toys R Us has two Battle for Endor sets marked down to around $60 each.

Sounds good? Too bad someone took all the Imperial figures out of one and all the imperials and Han Solo out of the other one.
I wonder was it theft or did they actually take them back as returns?

Arguably still decent if you wanted the other contents, I guess, considering the going rate of new items.

Black Friday looks to be a non-event for SW stuff this year. I've read all the ads (Walmart, TRU, Target, Gamestop, Walgreens, etc) and the only thing it appears we will see deals on are the 12" , 20" and 31" figures.

I guess Kohls has basic figures for $8.99, but I can't tell if its the Armor Up or BAW stuff. I guess neither of those is very appealing anyway.

I wish I lived in Canada because up there you will be able to get 6" SW figures for $10 a piece at Walmart. I would kill for a deal like that here.

Trust me, one deal like this does not make up for the rest of the Third World-like supply and pricing issues we normally have.  That $10 deal only applies to the last 2 waves of 6" figures from the pre-TFA waves.

Our dollar is in the ******* so you can add 35% to any online purchases and international shipping has gone through the roof.  /rant  ;)

One decent deal I've seen is for the Disney Infinities Star Wars packs.  50% off at Target.  There might be other deals at other stores for this as well, but I haven't looked to hard yet.  Still trying to find a good Battlefront bundle with a new console as well.

LOL @ Jesse.  I knew that was coming. :)

I picked up quite a few TFA 4" figures for BOGO last week at Dollar General...  Most stores were picked clean but one out of the way store had some, and another had (oddly) 3 figures, 2 of which were a stormie and flametrooper.  As figures I can ultimately articulate easily enough that was cool.

The other store had a Finn/Rey which I'd not bought (no real interest) but for $4, sure!  Rey's pack is slick, and Finn, besides articulation, is nice.

Star Wars is so hot this year, I wouldn't count on many great deals.  No clue why Dollar General went zany with a BOGO when they weren't keeping things in stock well anyway, but hey, it worked.

Some Star Wars Black Series deals in EE's Black Friday sale...  some nice army builders in that $105 Wave 7 case.  Better deal than $13 each anyway. :P
