Toys R Us is running a sale on basic Star Wars figures this week. Normally priced at $6.99 each, Clone Wars, Legacy and Saga Legends figures are now two for $10.99.
If Transformers are your thing, Toys R Us also has Revenge of the Fallen deluxe figures on sale for $7.99. This is a pretty good price considering they normally go for $11.99 at TRU and $10 at Target and Walmart.
While out looking for Animated Arcee and Ratchet at my local Toys R Us, I came across the new Transformers “Shanghai Showdown” three pack. This exclusive set includes a “dirty” Mudflap/Skids ice cream truck and a white repaint of Demolishor. Unlike some of TRU’s other exclusives, this set is priced at a reasonable $29.99.
While Target is known for their radical clearances, they usually wait a few months before slapping red tags on their exclusive items. Needless to say, I was a bit surprised to see that my local Target had marked down its new G.I Joe, Star Wars and Transformer toys after only a few weeks. These things weren’t exactly hot sellers, but with them marked down 30%, they’ll probably be gone by Christmas.

If you missed some of the Black Friday sales, you’re in luck. According to this week’s ad, Walmart has rolled back the price of Star Wars and G.I. Joe action figures to $6. Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Fast Action Battlers and deluxe toys have also been marked down to $8. The sale runs until December 12th.
While Black Friday is still more than a week away, there have been numerous reports of people finding the new Target exclusive G.I Joe, Star Wars and Transformer toys at their local store. While doing my rounds this morning, I found an entire end cap full of them. Along with the Wedge Antilles X-wing fighter, they had two new Star Wars Clone Wars battle packs, the new TIE fighter with updated cockpit and the G.I. Joe Past and Present Rockslide ATAV. On top of that, they had all three of the new Transformers exclusives. Thanks to Computron34 of the TFW2005 boards for the pic.
