Stuff Etc. is a consignment store by and large, which made this odd. Definitely wasn't someone brought a few pieces they couldn't sell in, this was cases of overstock.

ETA: Actually I'm pretty sure I know where these came from. There was a toy shop here last summer that came and went in a flash. I remember they had some of these assortments in stock at the time. I bet they gave up the remainder to consignment.

Not something that I'm personally interested in, but if you're a bargain hunter:  The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon Vehicle - $49.00

Did you get one at that price?  It's back up to $140 now.   ::)

I did.  I'm going to hold this back for a future gift.

According to Brickseek, a few of the Targets around here have hit further clearance (finally)...$2.38 for 3.75" and $2.96 for 6". I checked last night but the prices were not in effect yet...hopefully today.

At that price, even the seas of Jyns and Cassians start to look tempting.

I paid $2 for most of what TFA figures I have and still found their worth questionable...but I'm far on the toy collecting burn-out side of the force now.

$3 for 6" sounds nuts. I might even be foolish enough to try that scale at that price.

I got a Kanan for $5 once.  He hangs out looking out of place but I mean they are fun toys soooo whatevs.

I really wish that 6" Cassian was that good in 3.75" since he did the most "action" in that outfit. :-\

I don't spend a lot on 5poa and wait for sales and such.  I think I bought K2S0 full price and he was one that didn't hang around long.  TFA was a learning experience but even then I think many were $5 or less for me.  And if I didn't see it at a store I don't own it.  Still don't own Tassu Leach, Ackbar and other figures.  5 Below bailed me on the squad leader and helmetless Ren.

It was for me.  Basic figs for $2.30 and 6" figs for $3.  The selection is awful, but I don't mind a few extra Reys and Jyns at 3 for $10.  Feels like I'm losing money if I don't buy them....  :-\

I'll have to look around tomorrow maybe.  Those 4packs went fast at $13.

I was only buying for the pilot but wow they were here then gone.  I would like a couple more 5poa Cassian figures maybe if prices are right.

You know, my store had three of those four packs and I passed on them since I was buying up so many other extras.  That would be a good set to get dupes of though with a spare Two Tubes and Tank Driver.   :-\

I made out pretty well today...picked up a few Jedha Revolt packs for $7.48, a couple more Rebels figures for $2.38 and a half dozen Jyns and Cassians for $2.96 a pop. I'm about to go on vacation so it seemed like a good time for a Target blitz.

Mine had one Cassian 3.75" for $2 and change so I got him.  They had 4 Cassian 6" figures but I resisted. 

TFA figures are still almost $4 as were all TFA packaged figures.  Go figure.

My walmart on the other hand has dumped everything to the lawn and garden and prices are ok.  4 packs are $13, basics are pretty cheap.  We shall see how it goes.

5 Below has 2 packs for $5 but nothing locally yet, but I've heard some friends in WV got them so that's cool.
