A Jedi Walked Into A Target...

….and saw himself on sale for less than 5 bucks! I’m not good at telling jokes, so thankfully this isn’t one. How would you like to pay under $5 for some great The Black Series 6″ figures? Well, JTA reader JediRebel77 shares with us quite a find at a local Target store. Even though we all love to find a deal, Target REALLY needs to make some changes to the way they handle inventory for Star Wars figures. Click through to see what kind of deals we’re seeing.

Here is what JediRebel77 had to say:

Paul, Look at what I found at Target today. I found Chirrut marked down to $6.92. I did not believe that they would markdown Chirrut to that price so I went over to the price scanner to confirm and would you believe it was marked down to $4.94! I also found Kanan, TFA 3PO, and Krennic at the same price of $4.94. I scanned all of them before I went to the register.  I also found the 40th anniversary legacy set marked down to $27.98. Just thought I would share:)

    

 

It is so strange to see a figure like Chirrut on sale for under $5 when I have literally NEVER seen it in a brick and mortar store since it’s release. This just shows further proof that the Target system is broken. The benefit of Target putting this all on clearance is that hopefully we will start to see some new figures making it to the shelves after they clear these out. I haven’t check my local Targets yet, but you can be sure I will be there bright and early tomorrow. There are a few figures I wouldn’t mind getting a couple more of at that price tag.

The Legacy pack price is about what I paid for it originally at Target with the Rogue One release coupon sale they had going on, but that price is getting closer to making me want to grab a couple more (nobody can deny that Vader is such a phenomenal looking piece). So how about you? Have you seen anything like this at your local Targets? If so, did you get lucky and find any gems? Let us know in the comments below!

    I’m seeing everything SW on clearance everywhere. K-Mart has their 5POA stuff down to $4.25.

        This is what they should have been all along.

          I used an online inflation calculator to convert the $2.99 msrp from 1983 to today and it said $7.35. So really, today’s msrp isn’t too bad if you think of it that way. The 1983 $29.95 Millennium Falcon however comes out to $73.59 so the $129 TFA Falcon was probably a rip, even with 2 and a half figures.

          • Thundrstruckd

            Actually, I think $7.35 is too much for a figure with articulation that became outdated in the 1980’s.

      • CT-7567

        I love that NN figure. So glad I actually found him.

      • Sith Lord Jacen

        you got ripped off there only worth .99cents

  • Fire JJ Make SW Great Again!

    Got to make way for repainted TLJ crap. “OMG! It’s Finn….AND HE’S GOT A NEW HAT!”.

  • Mark

    My Targets never clearance anything. It all just sits there forever, fully stocked, at slightly higher than retail prices. I only get toys at Target when they’re not anywhere else, which is rare. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4bd71e790bea17a1ea240cdc752ee293a32ccc694e1842ef45068686ed5b0841.jpg

      I actually want that AU TIE Pilot, but Target won’t put it on clearance. It goes without saying that I’m not paying $15 for it.

      • Mark

        Oh you won’t pay twice as much for a bigger box? 😀 I picked him up a few weeks ago during TRU’s “Spend $15 on Star Wars and get a free AU figure” sale. It sounds made up but I guess they had too many. Hasbro seriously looks like greedy mofo’s with things like this. You get a $7 5poa with a vest instead of the build-a-weapon accessory and a bigger box for $15. At least with early bird Vader you get a big box AND a cool stand that you can at least have a discussion about whether or not it’s worth $20 more. And then Jedha Revolt comes out and it’s actually a good deal for once. Those little speeders are $10 at best + a $7 5poa is $17, not $25. No one bought those until they clearance for $5.
        I just want some consistency. Once everyone rushes to buy everything new for whatever price and the excitement dies down, toys should still clear off the pegs at a reasonable rate, but that’s not happening. Hopefully with Hasbro’s new collector’s focus they become a little more aware that we’re all only short-term idiots and we catch on pretty quickly to price gouging from the msrp level.

      My old Target in Brooklyn was very quick to clearance, it was great. My closest Target in NH (Concord) never puts anything on clearance, just as you’ve described. Stuff just sits forever. 😛

    • Aldo

      All Detroit area Target locations are exactly the same…..

  • Danny

    Chirrut and Baze are the only two that I don’t have. I better take my behind to target and quick. Oh wait, they still have tons of Cassians and Jyns; never mind! But if JediRebel77 wants to hook a brother up, let me know 😉

    • Well…Guess what? I have a post just for YOU!

      • Danny

        but i want to buy them for $5 each not $20….lol thanks for the post Colin I just saw it and pulled the trigger. Any idea if dorkside or BBTS will have another round of pre orders for these two characters.

  • Darth Maleval

    I would expect this to continue over the next month or so. The area resets the first of August, so the old stuff has to be clearanced out before.
    There are several DPCI’s in the system of TBS 6″ figures, certain ones have gone clearance while others have not. It is a bit confusing at times. The 40th Anniversary should go clearance as well as they are not slated to carry through the next set.

  • JediJones

    This is because these figures are still under the old TFA 3953 DPCI. Krennics have been $13.98 at many Targets around here since they first started shipping because the clearance price is permanently stuck in that store’s system. At other stores, these 3953 figures don’t ring up at all, because they’ve deleted that DPCI from their system. At yet more stores they ring up full price still. There isn’t any consistency on how Targets handle a DPCI that is supposed to be discontinued and has no shelf space but continues to have products show up in the store under it, albeit due to computer error in this case.

  • Caleb Amos

    It’s like Walmart with the 3.75 at $5.84. Yet all of the figures are Ackbar, Cassian, and Jyn. They aren’t going to sell. $6 is a steal as is. Such a waste. Could have sold so many more figures, but noooooo. Hasbro had to choose to produce tons of the ones no one wants tons of.

    • 80sRobot

      All the BS series 3.75″ of those three characters eventually sold out in the Walmarts in my area at $5.84. I myself bought a second BS Jyn for myself.

    • CT-7567

      Cassian? Seriously? I’ve only seen that figure once. I need another to open. Even Ackbar is HTF in my area.

      • General Hux

        Ackbar has actually done surprisingly well at retail.

        • CT-7567

          It’s an incredible figure. Do you have that one?

          • General Hux

            I do have it, love it.

          • CT-7567

            I’m glad you found him. I know you’ve had trouble finding figures since FF. I REALLY hope distribution isn’t this bad for TLJ. New costume Luke, Snoke, the new red guards and possibly knights f Ren. These are cool looking characters that I definitely want figures of.

  • CadeSky

    Target has been very stagnant for me ever since that initial wave of 40th stuff came out. There is a lot of old product that is just sitting there and not moving. I was really hoping that I’d see the 40th Wave 2 stuff there, but so far nothing. I was actually pretty surprised to find the remnants of a Wave 2 case at Walmart yesterday though. As far as clearance at Target is concerned…they have TBS6 figures for about $10 (again, still not moving them out the door!) and I saw that the 40th edition of Monopoly was now about $10 cheaper. Sigh.

  • CT-7567

    Target in my area has TBS 6″ for $10. The Legacy sets are starting to build up at Walmart, however. Also Luke, Leia and Ben from the 40th line. Colin, you’re definitely right about the Vader figure. It’s a work of art . I usually don’t compare 6″ to 3.75″ , but that new Vader actually rivals t the VC93 Vader, and that’s saying a lot.

    • Thundrstruckd

      Have to agree. If Hasbro were to shrink down that mold for next year’s TVC, it’s a must buy for me.
