View Full Version : What's the best deal you got during the great Hasbro Purge of 99/00

02-17-2002, 10:56 PM
I beefed up the imperial redruits considerably when I walked into 25 or so cases of classic Commtech figures last January. I picked up like 35 stormtroopers, and 6 R2's w/ leia for the price of $1.50. I also grabbed a bunch of At-At's for a sweet deal at $10 each, as well as a 12" Han w/ Taun Taun for $10. I also found a few Mynock Hunt scenes for 5 bucks each. Man, those sales were awesome!

IIRC Lots of little vehicles for real cheap (like 3 for 10 bucks or less) such such as the EU vehicles, Endor speeder bikes, and the SotE Swoop. A few cheap deluxe snowtroopers.

$10 FX X-Wing, $10 Millenium Falcon, $10 AT-AT.

And too many $1.50-$2.50 carded figures to count.

02-18-2002, 02:20 AM
An EU Luke for about $1.75 at Rite-Aid.

02-18-2002, 09:57 AM
FX X-wing: $6.50 (90% off at Service Merchandise)
CTC Princess Leia: $1.99 at TRU

Those were the days.

02-18-2002, 12:29 PM
My favorite pics were $10 AT-AT, $1.97 POTF & COMMTECH Stormtroopers, JarJar Naboo Swamps for $1.97, Playsets and small sized vehicles for $5, oh hell, it was all good!

02-18-2002, 02:53 PM
Wow, I cannot compeat with those guys. Infact I am quite inveous that they got xwing, falcons, and at ats for 10 bucks. I am still in pursuit of those. I got a green carded Boba Fett for $2.00. A tone of CT Stormies. 3 Swimming Jar Jars. Several Damaged Destroyer Droids, soft good Qui-Gon, and Vader w/ interigation droid all for $2.00. I also saw half a dozen 12" Valorum with Corsucant Guard for somthing like $8.00 at a KB outlet, and I didn't get them. Man that still burns me today. I love the deals, but I miss being able to go into several different stores and have the chance to get something. Now your lucky if Toys R Us and KB even have POTJ stuff. Oh well, that will all change on April 23rd. :happy:

02-19-2002, 02:23 PM
Man, my jealous. Because of where I live, I have to get stuff when I find it or pay some e-bay or other scalper later.:mad:

No wonder I couldn't find any CT Stormtroopers! You guys bought them all!! :)

One of my best deals was doing a price match from KB at TRU. KB was doing all their SW stuff buy-one-get-one-free so I ended up with two Mynock Hunts for $5.

02-26-2002, 10:42 PM

03-11-2002, 10:15 PM
I got Jawa and Gonk droid, Han Solo Cantina, Luke Tatooine (Flashback), Luke Tatooine (CT), Aunt Behru, Old Anakin all at $1.56 each. And Jaba Skiff Guards, Jedi Spirits, Cantina Aliens all at $3.18 each. That's the cheapest SW I ever gotten :)

I dont remember any great deals at that time, but last week i got a few good deals at Target on POTJ figures. I picked up Amanaman for 3.99, and Ellorrs Madak, Obi-Wan (jedi training), and Ketwol for 1.54 each.

05-23-2002, 01:53 PM
Sadly, I wasn't able to find any of the CTC Stormies or R2 w/ Holo Leia on clearance anywhere. Would've liked 10 or so Stormies and a couple R2s.

I did manage to find the last wave of E1 figs (Battle Amidala, Sio Bibble, Pit Droids, R2-B1, & TC-14) in a Target's clearance bin for $1.54 each. And I picked up a PFX X-Wing at WM for $19.99.

05-24-2002, 09:03 AM
We never even got those end of Ep I figures in Canada, and I never saw the commtech stormie (but I heard a rumour that it was released here)
And you guys got them for like $2!

05-27-2002, 06:35 AM
31 Commtech Stormies at $1.97 each
Power FX X-Wing at $25
Queen's Starship at $25

POTF, Commtech, FF and Ep1 $1.97 each
Mynock Hunt for $1.97
FX X-wing $14.97 2each

05-29-2002, 03:53 PM
30 seems to be the magic number in which to buy stormtroopers with! I slacked on my EP1 buying due to lack of interest in that installment, but AOTC has revitalized it. Perhaps we will have a second coming of $1.97 figures, and I can complete the Phantom Menace collection.

06-13-2002, 08:51 PM
Damn when did all this happen. How come there isn't crap left over. I had stopped collecting for awhile. damn i'm made. people talking about commtech anh figs so cheap and the lave wave of ep1 figs, man that sucks. WHEN WILL THERE BE MORE CLEARENCES LIKE THIS anyone know or gues????I HOPE SOON


06-14-2002, 08:51 AM
10 CT Stormtroopers @ $1.97
CT Vader @ $1.97
Tauntaun & Luke @ $4.99
A-Wing @ $4.99

07-11-2002, 11:26 PM
During '00-'01 I took advantage of a Fan Club liquidation sale and bought $850.00 worth of merchandise (according to their original prices) for a total of $137.58. Quite a deal. Most of the stuff wasn't excellent, but I got a kick out of it.

07-12-2002, 02:02 AM
