The one Target I stopped at this morning at AOTC figures for $6.99! Has anyone else encountered that this morning?

It looks like Wal Mart's gonna be the cheapest at $5.88.

:cool: Found Luminara at Target this morning after about 7 stops and it was 6.99. I told the manager Wal Mart had the figs at 5.88 and he matched the price!!!:D

Target here is at $6.99 and so is K-Mart. Although the figures at K-Mart go on sale next week. They were the only overpriced places around here.

At least it's better than $7.99 at KB. I use KB as a last resort. I don't like paying $8 for a figure whereas I can get it for $2 cheaper someplace else!

That's why there was only three people at Target when they opened up yesterday. I bought 7 figures, but it was only because they were background variants. I swapped them with my WM ones and I'm taking them back today. Why would anyone pay a buck extra unless they had a HTF figure that no other store had in stock?

It's good for them that they only had a small display. They'll never sell any until they go on clearance.

I agree. I bought some Target figures, but only because they were the background variants. I'm swapping them with the others I got cheaper at Wal-Mart.

Another thing: My Target had a bunch of POTJ figures on clearance, still in the main action figure aisle, on Saturday. I was planning on picking up a couple of more Bespin guards for $3.20. Can't beat it, right?

Tuesday morning, they were gone. Not even on the clearance end caps.

What'cha gotta do OC is stash them. Target always drops the price again and again. I have a couple hidden hoping they'll go down to around $2.

Again, kids. Never ever stash figures (wink, wink). It's an evil practice, it hurts the economy, and you'll grow hairy palms. :)

I know now I should've stashed them! I figured (here I go being rational about Target again!) that they'd be around for a while. But noooooooooooooo!!

There's other Targets in my area I can still check out.
