Why does it matter JB? Target has nothing but pegwarmers.

Target, blahhhh, I visit Target often on my Star wars runs, and since '03 they've restocked 5 times now, all with mid '02 cases.

It's funny the whole month of December (ie prime x-mas shopping time, they had 3 figures on the pegs) and now they have all of last years peg warmers, horrid. Hopefully this will get the dust off the racks.

Nay. I found the new Tusken and the Darth Tyranus at Target.

My local Target has had the same figure asst since, at least, last September. This sale will warrant a trip there again, just in case, but I'm not expecting much.

Not bad,even if pegwarmers just line the shelves it could be worth it to pick up a few Clone Troopers or Endor Rebel Soliders.I'll have to get WM price match that one:evil:Thanks HBH:D

I'm picking up destroyer droids myself!

Still, take the ad to other stores that price-match.

This is to probably compete with KB Toys 50% off sale...$5.99 to $2.99 aint bad....

mostly recycled pegwarmers like Chewbacca, Teemto, Han Solo (tons of him) KI-Adi, and their 4 packs for $9.99 still....

Im with OC41750, Take the ad to other stores that price match! I know that there are a couple of wal-marts that have plenty of army builders on the pegs!

Hey, this don't sound too bad. However, I only have $5, so maybe I'll get two more Endor Soldiers or take it to Wal-Mart and get more Geonosians.

Val Da Car
04-12-2003, 04:45 PM
Don't forget...KBToys and Toy Works with their 50% off sale...

half of 5.99 is still a good price...

this is good I might go out tommarow and get some army builders to clear the racks for new figures... Our Walmert has figures for $4 now

TheDarthVader
04-12-2003, 06:29 PM
My Target is crumby. I will have to see if W-M or TRU have any good figures so I can get the price matched. Thanks for pointing it out!

Teeska Mon Eebon
04-12-2003, 10:00 PM
I looked today and sadly no more army builders for the sale...

Val Da Car
04-12-2003, 10:08 PM
That is because they will stock stuff for the overnight....

maybe....I hope so

TheDarthVader
04-13-2003, 03:36 PM
YESSSSSSSSSSS!! I am so happy. I found 8 new figs at WM today and got them for $2.50. I then found clone trooper pilots at TRU! Thanks TARGET for putting these on sale! (I went to target and they had crappy figs, so I passed). I knew I would though. Target never has anything good!!! :(

Val Da Car
04-13-2003, 10:08 PM
me too...I picked up Clone trooper pilots and Destroyer Droids as well as some beadless Endor troopers.....maybe they will get repainted and end up in another diorama fixing ships at the Rebel shipyards......

OC47150

I went to three Targets yesterday morning (the first person in the doors at one of them) and none had destroyer droids. I ended up going to Wal Mart on the way to church and picking up four DDs with the Target ad.

One Target in my area also had the deluxe accessory sets as an 'exception value' sale for $8. I picked up another Yoda/SBD set for the base. I might go back later in the week and get another.

Also picked up battle droids and other figures at the KB sale this weekend.

OC47150
04-14-2003, 08:07 AM
OT but...

Check out the KB four packs. I saw one that had Yoda, Dooku and HD Anakin in it at my KB. Not too bad for $10.

mm74md
04-14-2003, 12:58 PM
I got the new Mace, an extra new Ani, Clone Pilots, & DD at my local Wal Mart. I just couldn't pay $2.50 for that crappy new R2-D2!!!

I couldn't believe all the newer figures that had in stock!

jad
04-14-2003, 01:35 PM
I managed to find a new Dooku for 2.50 at Target. There was also a big hole in their selection so i'm sure that they had atleast two cases filling that in of the new 2003 waves. I'm happy to get the new dooku, he's quite a bit better than the first one, and for 2.50 you can't go wrong.

I checked all the local walmarts and the other target without success though. But thats cool that other people out there got brand new figures at that awsome sale price.

OC47150
04-14-2003, 01:41 PM
I'm going to check a couple of times this week and see if Target restocks.

Dr Zoltar
04-14-2003, 03:49 PM
Just an FYI...I believe Target price matches for the past week. So if you picked up some figs in the last 7 days, go in with your receipt and they will give you the $2.50 price. Too bad the newest figs I got from them were a couple of weeks ago.

Jayspawn
04-14-2003, 05:01 PM
My Targets have nothing but pegwarmers also. TONS of Djas, Dexters, Palpatines, and Orn Free.

Which means that they have been sitting there for almost a year now.

Val Da Car
04-14-2003, 05:17 PM
Well April 23 will be a year in the store but with the actual date coding on the back of the figure it would be more than one year.

just to be specific.....

Val Da Car
04-14-2003, 05:20 PM
Imagine that ....an army of Clone ......Orn Fre Tas'



all of those Blue Twi'leks marching just scares me...

I went to Target just before closing tonight, and picked up an Endor bearded trooper and a Massif. My son and I then went to Wal-Mart where we picked up a couple of Clone trooper pilots and a Destroyer Droid. Building our army, little by little, piece by piece.

JediTricks

Picked up Ep 2 Watto and Lott Dod... $2.50 is the highest price I'd pay for these 2 and even then I felt a little unclean about buying figures I didn't really want. ;)

OC47150
04-16-2003, 07:34 AM
That's the way to do it!

bobafrett
04-16-2003, 11:26 AM
Target hasn't put out anything new during this sale. I went and picked up a few more figures today at a Target for my son to use with his Republic gunship.

I agree, same here. Target has just left old figures out. I have see SBD, C3PO, Tusken Raider w/ massiff, lott dod, watto, and kit fisto.

Roufuss
04-16-2003, 01:18 PM
Same here. Why even bother to have a sale if you're just going to leave the same old crap out.

To get rid of it (hopefully) and make room for the new stuff that will sell itself without a sale.

Roufuss
04-16-2003, 01:33 PM
But the old crap isn't even moving, at least in my part of the world, and when it DID, Target put out an even OLDER box of figures!!!

OC47150
04-16-2003, 01:36 PM
I have to side with Roufuss on this one. One of the Targets I visited did restock older figures, like Ki Adi and the female Tusken raider.

JEDIpartner
04-16-2003, 02:10 PM
Well... whatever their reasoning is on the sale, let me just say that the Target in Parma, OH was picked CLEAN!!! The pegs are practically empty... which means new figures are on the way!

Roufuss
04-17-2003, 01:22 PM
Lol.

Just wait until you get to Target, and see nothing but an older box of figures again. I'm starting to wonder how many damn boxes of figures are hiding in the back at this point.

JEDIpartner
04-17-2003, 01:24 PM
Quite possibly three thousand... :eek:

Don't forget about price matching. It works at TRU, WM & K-Mart... if you can find one.:p

Patient Zero
04-17-2003, 04:07 PM
Junk, junk and junk. Checked a Target and two WMs the other day and the best I could find were 2 red clones. I really want to take advantage of this deal, but there is nothing worth getting that I can find.

Dr Zoltar
04-17-2003, 05:36 PM
I actually was able to price match this ad at Wal-Mart for the Treadmill Padme, the Research Droids, and Arena Obi-Wan. Now to return the ones I bought a month ago at $4.95 a pop!

But don't get me wrong, the Star Wars section was still just 2 pegs wide and 4 pegs long. There were maybe 12 figures in all. And can you believe it, I have yet to see a Teebo at retail. Teebo of all figures!

OC47150

Stopped at the local Target on the way into work this morning and zip. Just the typical peg warmers.

I'm going to try several stores tomorrow.

OT but ... Does anyone else's Target have the deluxe accessory sets on sale? I picked up the Yoda/SBD set up for $8 but this was only at one Target out of four or five I visit regulary. It's also one of the few Targets that carried the Yoda set. Just wondering.

tgr3328
04-18-2003, 09:15 AM
Yes. It is a "temporary price reduction". I picked up the deluxe C3PO. I believe it includes the accessory pack as well.

OC47150
04-18-2003, 11:56 AM
I've only seen the sign at the one Target. I'm going back there tomorrow to pick another one or two Yodas (I'm interested in the base more than anything.) I might scan the accessory sets.

bobafrett
04-18-2003, 02:54 PM
I saw the sign at the Target near Yorktown mall, and they had several of the deluxe sets w/yoda & super battle droid, and 3PO with battle droid.

Same situation here, 1 out of 5 Targets have them on sale in my area - real useful if I want a dozen Dlx flying Geonosians. :p

BTW, if anybody wants an Ep 2 Saesee Tiin or Jar Jar or yelling Mace, come to LA-area Targets, we've got plenty.

Roufuss
04-18-2003, 04:49 PM
I went to my Target today, and the pegs were completely EMPTY. I was shocked, two days ago it was nothing but pegwarmers, but now everything was gone.

They were busy, so I didn't want to bother the employees, but you better believe I'm going back at around 9 to make them pull a few cases =D

Same with mine. I asked if they had cases in the back and they did. But the 17 yr old worker had to ask his manager which ones to pull. And...could it be...YES!...Kit Fisto & Mace Windu - Geonosian Rescue along with Jango Fett - Final Battle.

I was ticked :mad: . The kid said they have the new cases back there, but he isn't allowed to bring them out. I guess that's the whole point of this sale is to get those peg warmers out of their way

Dr Zoltar
04-18-2003, 05:46 PM
I wonder if that means they have other action figures hiding in back as well. I want one of the new X2 Nightcrawlers but have only seen him at KayBee Toys. And both of the ones I saw were completely smashed up.

Roufuss
04-19-2003, 10:40 AM
Finally hit the jackpot. I didn't get a chance to go back last night (but now I wish I did), and went this morning at around 11 after dropping my girlfriend off at work. I didn't expect to find much, but I was quite surprised.

I got Aayla Secura, Bariss Orfree, Ashla & Jempa, Imperial Soldier, Library Droids, and Lama Su. I had to search to find the Ashla & Jempa, someone hid it behind the vehicles and I just barely saw the card sticking out.

Seems like someone already went through and ransacked everything, but hey, I'll take these leftovers. I think I'll go back in tonight and see if they'll put out anymore boxes, since the pegs are virtually empty again (Except for a Padme and a Red Battle Droid).

OC47150
04-21-2003, 08:26 AM
The Targets in my area were pretty well picked over this weekend. I used the ad at Wal-Mart and got a couple of Royal Guards.

The Yoda deluxe set was gone at the one Target.

KB doesn't price match but that didn't stop me from picking up three Geonosian warriors.

aceguide
04-21-2003, 09:25 AM
My adventure to Target yeailed four pegs with 20 Padme Arena.

What a find! They are still there....

bobafrett
04-21-2003, 12:06 PM
Now that this sale is over, I am less than delighted to announce, that I found only one new figure. I did pick up a few clone trooper pilots at Wal-Mart for the same deal Target had, but it was pretty much nothing new found.

Patient Zero
04-21-2003, 12:25 PM
Well, I figured that I would regret not taking advantage of this sale so Saturday I went to 2 WM and a TRU. Finally found some new figs:

2 Boba Fetts
2 Secret Anakins
2 New Dooku
2 New Kenobi
and
2 red clones
1 pilot
1 Ki-Adi-Mundi

Just could not pass up a sale.
