Their regular price for Star Wars figures this year was $9.99

So, justice served.

I have to admit I have used the one in VA all of once this year and thats because I was in the Mall at the time, mind you I did get the Legacy Comic Packs there - so it was cool, as to wether I am sad or not, well nope aint sad they did it to themselves.

I popped into KB yesterday here, and it's a wasteland.  Not one SW figure left on the pegs, nor any of the 3 for $10 military figures, though they had about a dozen IJ figures that I passed on. 

Guess I got to the sale late.  No matter, it's money saved I guess, but I would've liked to have taken advantage of something there I guess.  Still, I was shocked how cleared out they were.  I didn't think the % off was that high yet, especially at the inflated prices.

DR, I generally agree with you...  KB did this to themselves by not making an effort to be competitive.  Prices went up anywhere else and KB followed suit, sometimes even going more than $1...  They earned this with a badge of honor I'm afraid.  I won't miss them since I think the last time I bought SW stuff there was maybe a VOTC Stormtrooper or something, and that was on a BOGO sale or something.  I know I bought a couple things there during the great clearance glut of 1998, but that stuff was super cheap...

Hell, their exclusives were even lame to an incredible extreme...  :-\
