    Hello, I read about it earlier and confirmed it myself :)

    Target has lowered the saga figures to 2.99 each, I think its for a limited time though. Its unadvertised too.

    It doesnt help me much because all the Target here has is Jar Jar, Nikto, Mace, Saesee Tin and Zam.

    Just thought others might want to know and maybe get some peg warmers for cheap if they have been waiting for a price drop. GOOD LUCK

    Yeah, hopefully some of you can find something decent at your Targets. The one closest to me hasnt had anything new in awhile. The better one takes an hour to get to


    EDIT/UPDATE: For those wondering about the Deluxe figures, they were still 9.99 here in Oregon. All they had was the Deluxe Jango

    Yes! Now I can finally stock up on Endor Han's!

    I hope they lower the prices on the Deluxe figures. Target always seems to get those ahead of time rather than the regular figures.

    Is this at all targets, or just ones who chose to?

    I read it at the jawa.com I think. Several people have seen it, including myself so I believe it is all Targets. It isnt advertised in the weekly ad though so you will have to actually go take a look.

    I guess if anyone takes a trip to Target they could always say if they noticed the price drop or not and what state their in. Just to help everyone out

    It's true, I've seen it with my own eyes. On a run to Target Yesterday I saw the advertised drop. All they had was the original figures. But they did have HD Anakin, 3-4 Dookus and one solitary Yoda. I snatched up the Yoda and his loose butt is now adorning my entertainment center.

    I still wish they would lower the other figures too. They had a flying Geonosian, but I didn't feel like paying $10 for it.

    Now I would jump up and say "Yahoooo", but the nearest Target to me is about 10,000 miles away. :(

    Yah, as most of you can see from my collection, I stick basically with the 3 3/4" figures, but I've always liked the Darth Vader Unleahsed figure. I'll probably ask for him for Christmas or somethin', we'll see. :D

    Yah, I just think some of them look a little loony. (good lord, I have no idea why I'm using that word :p )


    The Jango/Boba one looks awesome, the Vader one as I already said looks great, but the others are simply a bit over the top for me (read: Darth Maul).

    But there's one that's neither over the top loony nor cool...

    I'm mainly a 3¾ figure collector aswell, but I've got Unleashed Anakin and Padmé and I think they're great, and Padmé can never be too sexy!

    I don't think you get the "Padme Unleashed: Too Sexy" joke. ;)

    Well not really Sithy, but there was those thread's ages ago, like Padmé Unleashed: too sexy? and then it got out of control and it was like "Mace Windu Unleashed - Too sexy?" or Darth Tyranus etc, I'm sure you'll tell me the whole story.

    The sale at my Target goes until Nov. 16. Although with the limited figures they have, it shouldn't take long at $2.99 a piece.

    My target never seems to have the wonderful price drops and clearance sales that all of your other ones do.
