The Target stores in my area have the VTAC on clearance already. 25% marks them down to $8.98 from their overpriced $11.98. I was able to get 2 more snowtroopers. If you've been waiting on these, keep an eye on your Target shelves in case they drop lower.

Oddly enough, they also had Transformer Movie stuff on clearance too.

this isn't even a surprise for me.

I expected they would go on sale soon at Target. They shot themselves in the foot by having so high priced to begin with.

Well, I'll keep an eye out now. But I'll wait until they drop to half price or better. If I don't get any at those prices, no biggie.

Thanks for the info!

with the way they are selling, they will soon be free with any purchase in the entire store.

thanks for the heads up.

Well, I am kind of hoping the go on sale. There's a lot I want to buy regarding teh Transformers Movie merch, but I don't want to pay the full price, need to budget for SW, and don't have as high a desire for them as I do SW. So if I don't get the stuff I won't sweat it. So I'm waiting it out and hoping for the best.

Let me clarify…I live near Chambersburg, PA and we have a 3 Targets close by along Interstate 81. The two PA Targets had the markdowns while the Hagerstown, MD Target didn't. Conversely, the MD Target has the POTC & all sorts of Lego sets marked down but not in PA. I think it has a lot to do with inventory. The PA Targets had at least 4 or 5 pegs jam-packed with VTAC, while the MD on just had a handful of VTAC.

Picked up Luke & Leia yesterday at Target for $8.38 each, completing my needs for this line.

Thanks to all for the heads-up.:thumbsup:

They haven't dropped yet around here, and it's hard enough to find the things, so i dont imagine they will be going on clearence. Average retail is 11.98 for them, and they sell out in about a week or so.

The VOTC are moving fast at this price; Mine had at least two cases worth when the clearance hit. They are down to 5 pieces now, so $8.38 was the magic number for many...

I've only seen VTAC figs at Target and K-Mart (of all places)....none of our 3 WalMarts have them....does WalMart not carry VTAC figs? They sure had a tone of left over pegwarmers from the last set....I almost made an army builder out of Greedo!

I recently found these at my WM but far away from the figure section. The were along a side wall mixed in with board games and clearance stuff.

My WM hasn't carried the vintage line since the VOTC came out. Only TRU and KM has continued the stock them locally.

They had them clearanced at my Target today for $8.38 as well. Picked up Han, Bossk, IG and a Snowtrooper. Going to watch these and hold my receipt as there were a bunch and even at $8.38 they are no bargain and think they may hit the $7 price point or lower before selling out. I almost bought the remaining 2 Snowtroopers they had but I would be over $50 for the 6 and I don't want the coins. If the mail-in was a figure I probably would have been able to justify it. I am not in love with any of them, but they are nice and I don't think I have a Bossk from any previous incarnation.

Our Target finally lowered the prices and my wife found me another Snowtrooper at KMart of all places...

They're still no where to be found at TRU or WalMart....

Just so you Americans can appreciate how slow things are in Canada...

TRU JUST marked down the VTSC figs to $5.00 (from $15) in Canada.

As of yesterday, my Target only had them down to $8.38. I'm holding out for the next tier of reductions (50%) to snag a Luke and perhaps IG-88. With my luck, though, only Han, Bossk, and Leia will survive to that level.

I should probably go find a decent Luke and stash it somewhere very secure and let them keep reducing the price on it. :p

That's what I did with some more troopers. Depending on how cool an employee you have at the returns desk, they may let you return/buy back if the prices drop lower. I did this when I bought the Lego Jabba Sail Barge. I got it when it was 50% off at $37.49. The next week the price dropped to $18.74 and they were all gone. An older guy the service desk did a return & then resold it to me for the lower price!

I plan on trying with the VTAC & Lego B-Wing I got yesterday.

I asked the guy in electronics, and he told me that their policy for price adjustments is 14 days as long as you have your receipt.

I saw some for $6.38, but who wants that many VTSC2 Leias?

I think the Leia will be pegwarming even if she dropped to a quarter....

Too bad I can't track anymore Snowtroopers...

Too bad the Bespin Luke doesn't look like Luke...

Too bad I have no need for Bossk or IG....

Too bad....oh wait I still need to get the Han....

Picked up a Leia for 2.98 the other day.
