Does anyone have an idea what the prices are going to be at Wal-Mart?? I know the figures are $5.88, but what about the rest? I'm interested in the prices for the Jedi Starfighter, Slave I, the lightsabers, and the LEGO Technic Super Battle Droid. If anyone knows, I'd greatly appreciate it. It'll help me budget out my shopping spree on the 23rd. $200+ and counting!!! :crazed: Can't wait until Episode III!!!

Thanks for the initial info, Dar' Argol. It'll really be a big help. Sorry to be a pest, but I just remembered a few things I forgot to type in earlier--the Obi-Wan/Dooku deluxe figures and the CD soundtrack. If you could find out those prices too, that'll give me all the prices I need to figure how much money I'm dumping in one night. :)

The deluxe figures should run you $9.99, and the soundtrack should be $13.99.

Just remember, the Dooku probably won't be labelled 'Dooku'. :)

The deluxe are $9.96 and your right Lord Tenebrous, Dooku is not labled Dooku. I'll also check on the Soundtrack for you Sith Lord 0498 but Lord Tenebrous might have it right, except it would be $13.96. For some stupid reason WM never ends a price in .99, its always .96 or .94 or .88:rolleyes:

The deluxe figure of Dooku is labeled Darth Tyranus.

Yeah I know Dooku will be labeled Darth Tyranus. It was late when I wrote that, and I was too tired to remember if this section was spoiler-sensitivie so I just used "Dooku." Personally, I think they should label the lightsaber as "Darth Tyranus electronic lightsaber." Just looks and sounds a lot cooler. :cool:

The sabers are only $18 and Slave I $20, Jedi Rainman?? I figured they'd be $20 and $25-30 respectively. But hey, if that ends up being the prices, I won't be complaining! :)

I checked our system today and here are the actual prices:

Jedi Satrfighter - $19.96
Slave 1 - $24.87
Lightsaber - $19.76
LEGO Super Battle Driod - $34.88
E2 Soundtrack - this I did not get a definite price on. My Electronics Dept Mgr said it should be between $14.88 - $13.88. Maybe Jedi_Rainman can get a definite price since he works in Electronics.

Hope this helps plan your expences(sp) on the 23rd:)

Sure does, Dar' Argol. And thanks to you too, Jedi rainman, for the soundtrack price. It sure does help me plan. All I can say is that I'm glad I didn't max out my credit card on the rest of my recent SW purchases (Interceptor, Toy Fair Vader, etc. etc.)!! This way I can max it out now!!! :)


Now if only I still worked for Wal-Mart, I'd have that discount... :cry:

I thought the Slave 1 would be around 29.98... Oh well, I'm not complaining, extra money. :cool:

Does anybody else live in a low-interest area? I mean... 3 years ago I was at Wal-Mart at midnight and there were a whopping 2 others to share with. Among the three of us, we bought out all they had on the shelves (figures, there were quite a few sabers/vehicles left)

Lookin' forward to that in 2 weeks :)

Anyone know what to expect for the prices of the Beasts at Walmart?

And the Deluxe were supposed to be 9.89 correct?

Thanks :)

I live in a more or less not really collectorized area, I know there is at least 1-2 major collectors here cause after the Episode 1 stuff hit I saw someone at Wal-Mart filling their basket with like 1-2 of everything, even the bath bubble bottles! :D I doubt they were scalpers or hoarders, they didn't really take alot of figures, and they left quite a few Mauls on the pegs if I remember right. :cool: I live in a somewhat small town, it's not REALLY small but it's only got 1 Wal-Mart which is a supercenter, and that's the only store chain we have the carries SW. No local; KB, TRU, K-Mart or even collector shop.

I'm guessing it shouldn't be too packed on the 23rd, I'm sure some people are gonna know better than to just expect TRU to be putting the stuff out, but hopefully it'll be calm cause it was ridiculous how alot of TRUs handled the crowds.

my area (Central WI) wasn't too bad 3 yrs ago: WalMart opened at 7am and there were 3 of us. Then when Target opened at 8, there were maybe 1/2 dozen people waiting for the doors to open but it wasn't bad at all.


//hoping this year is the same...

I seen the 12" figures at Wal-Mart for $19.76.

There has been a price change already for the AOTC figs. Its for the 12" Collection. I just did the price change today for it(since I am in charge of all the AOTC stuff) and it is company wide. Unfoutunatly the price is going up:(. I don't know why, I just do what the suits tell me:confused:. The price change is:

Old: $19.76
New: 23.88

:(
I really don't buy too many 12"'ers but this stinks for those that do. Sorry guys:(.

And they're not even that good, that's what really has been killing the 12" line is the price of them, they must not want these figures to succeed. Weren't they like $9.99-$14.99 when the first 12" came out?

I seem to remember a $14.96 at one time. Then they went up around the time I got my Cantina Band. The Obi looks kinda good and I like the Clone Trooper(I like all Troopers:D), but your right, the price is killing them:(.

Just an update on the Deluxe figure price at W-M. According to corby73 he was charged $6.96 for getting them on 4/11 and was charged that price per a manager.

Here's the link (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6071) to his post in Just Found (USA)...

I won't doubt you since you work at W-M, so I guess they really screwed up with me today. I got all four for $5.88 along with the basic figures I found on 4/13.:)

The $10 price tag sound more in line with what's been charged for EP1 ad POTJ figures, but I'd rather pay $6.

:( The first toys I want to get are 12" Obi and Ani. Oh well, I guess I'll have to make up the $6 difference by cutting one 3 3/4" figure from my list. :D

Thanks for that update, I'm glad I know now instead of midnight on the night of the release. :)
