Facebook follower Ricky Resurreccion writes in with his current store find of clearance Jakks figures:
Hi there, you may want to pass this news along. Been working some SF Bay Area Walmarts and they have the 48″ Jakks Vader and FO Stormtrooper on clearance for $21. I suggest peeps scan the barcodes even if they have their retail prices stuck on it. I had my stores ring up $21 for the 48″s. And the Jakks plain-vanilla R2-D2 are not advertised as on clearance but believe me, they are. Usually sells for $50, they are on sale for $13. At these prices, I grabbed a couple for my boys.
Nice finds Ricky!
