Yesterday while doing a bit of last minute shopping, I found these prices at a few different Targets:

12" Luke w/ Speederbike: $27.90
12" figures: $10.40
3.75" figures: $4.50

Not a tremendous deal on the small guys, but the 12" figures are quite the markdown! I didn't expect these kind of drops for another week. I picked up the Luke--it will complement the other bike quite nicely!--Han Stormy, Death Star Trooper, Death Star Droid, Bossk, and 4-LOM. I couldn't find any Iggies, though. :cry:

I'm not 100% sure if this is a nationwide thing, but all the Targets in my area had these prices, so it's a distinct possibility! Run out and check--maybe there'll be something left after the Christmas rush! :D

Same thing here in Cali I saw a 4 lom and a speeder bike...which some kid yanked out from in front of me! I already have one but that little yoinker! I bought a couple of figs for my nephew...some were marked at 4.90 others were not.

I heard from a reliable source (although I haven't been to Target in a week) that it is the Ketwol wave that is marked down to $4.90 while the others are at the regular $6.44 (or $6.74 depending on which store) price.

I don't expect to see a mad flock of collectors ready to snatch them off the shelves.

Yep, I found IG-88 sitting at Target in Ohio the day before X-Mas.

The box was beat-up, but I wanted to open this baby anyway.:D

Target as of lately has been a good place to find figures.But when I go in the store I don't get to excited because they don't sell to many.You have to catch them at just the right time.

I found the same $4.50 price here in OK as well as the $10.90 on 12".

My Target has the same markdowns. Good prices! I'll pick up a Luke and Speederbike if it gets marked down again. Good deals on the 12" figures.

I'm stuck at work until 5:30 PM and chomping at the bit to get out to my nearest Target (which will undoubtedly have NOTHING! I am planning to have a go of it regardless. I could use some cheap 12" figures, especially the last two waves! Sith Worm and/or Bubba Fatt, if you are reading this, check out the stores nearest you!

I went to the nearest Target yesterday after work and found NOTHING! They had about ten each of Ketwol and Duros (NOT marked down) and NOTHING ELSE Star Wars! I will try a few others this weekend, but I am not too hopeful.

Saw them today. No 3 3/4" reduced,just 12". The box on the Luke looked like someone tried to use as a football.

My Target has only Collection 1 on clearence. But not Collection 2 figures. Which is odd because Collection 2 is older. ?!
